Autocomplete on SUMO – From the Community for the Community
Tobias Markus, a long time contributor, has implemented an autocomplete feature that makes it easier for contributors to search for articles while answering questions. After he has created an add-on, a member of the SUMO coding team helped him with coding this feature into the SUMO forum. It’s not only a big step for us, but also a big step for Tobbi.
OpenPhoto launches iPhone app
The OpenPhoto project was highly welcome after their successful campaign last year. It’s an open source photo platform to help Dropbox users to share, organize and enjoy their photos more easily. Now they have launched an iPhone app to share your photos on the go. So download the app or find out more about it.
