Slick New User Menus!

Tags:

idc-newavatarmenu09We’ve rolled out some cool changes to your User Menu!  Ever notice that when you hover your mouse cursor over a user’s profile picture, their User Menu drops down displaying links to their profile, blogs, and more?  Well the User Menus just got a whole lot more useful!

Not only do they look super-sweet, they also present higher quality info right up front, while minimizing the footprint.  Now you can quickly learn about your fellow commenters.  We’ve got some more changes to the comment section coming soon.

So what’s new in the User Menu?

  • Profile Picture now blows-up so you can get a good look at it.
  • Reputation Score is included.
  • User Description & Latest Tweet are both there so you don’t have to choose one or the other.
  • Slick New Look

So now when you hover her avatar you’ll get a better look at miss Swann and learn more about her all at the same time!  Not too shabby!

If you haven’t given IntenseDebate a try yet, there’s no better time than now!  Get started with IntenseDebate.

  2. Looks good but each mini profile seems a little slow to load – might there be any way to preload the mini profiles in the background?

  3. Hmm. I can't confirm this. What browser? Any site in particular? Does it occur with my profile? Thanks.

  4. Yes, I get the little loading animation for your mini profile too.

    I'm not talking about a massive delay, just enough to discourage usage and, obviously, you want people to explore each other's profiles and ID histories.

    It would make more sense to preload all these mini profiles and have them pop up instantly when moused over, rather than wait for a separate AJAX call to fetch such a small amount of info.

    Safari 4 on Mac OS X – plenty fast.

  5. Thanks for the info. We're taking a look at improving this.

  6. I agree, it's a little slow. I also like how Disqus has recent comments and backlinks built into their profile pop-up. I don't know how difficult this is to do, but I'd love to see this impemented as well.

  11. Where are you encountering this? Can you provide me with a specific link? I'll take a look. Thanks!

  12. This is great! But, why haven't you rolled out the Facebook feature you mentioned a few post back? Still waiting…

  13. Thanks! We're still ironing out our Facebook Connect integration. It's coming soon! 🙂

  14. I'm still having problems with this. For some reason, when we approve a comment by email, it gets posted on the blog as a comment, "approved". What's the deal?

  15. This is so cool. My name is Jimmy John and I own submarine shops!

  16. I personally as a user, appreciate the new quick way that we can now access information about our fellow users. This is slick. Can you then, find a moment to address user issues?
    I will personally do all I can to help you market the remarkable product you have created, but, there are some things to still be considered.
    Respectfully,

  19. The new layout looks great, even with a little loadtime. It takes about 1 second and I can live with that.😉
