Software Update, Guests now See/Buy Adult Work, Unread Notices, Create Button Fix

Hi everyone

We have just released Inkbunny Beta 19.

In this edition we have added two important new features.

Guests can now choose to see Mature/Adult work

"Guests" means anyone who is viewing the site without an Inkbunny account they signed up for.

When guests view the site, they are now presented with the option to turn on Mature or Adult submissions. These are normally hidden from guests by default.

This feature is important for artists selling work and linking to Inkbunny from other sites. Now customers do not have to sign up to Inkbunny just to see and buy your art.

Please let your fans and customers know, in case they have tried to access your work on Inkbunny previously but didn't want to sign up at the time.

Log out and browse as a Guest to check it out! Try going to direct links to your Adult submissions to see the message and options that guests are now presented with.

For anyone who wants to block Guests from their work

You can still choose to block guests from accessing your artwork, no matter what it is rated. If you look under the Ratings settings for your submissions, you will now see a  "Block Guests" option. Just tick that box and guests will not be able to access that submission.

Unread Notices Email

Inkbunny now emails you when you have Unread Notices on your account. This is separate from Unread Comments. Notices are things like submissions, journals, watches, favs, streams, etc.

It will email you weekly, daily or hourly depending on your settings.

You can configure this option on by going to the Email section of your Account Settings. This option is enabled in "weekly" mode for anyone who already had Unread Comment emails turned on. For everyone else it is currently turned off.

Bug with "Create" button and Internet Explorer fixed

Anyone that was unable to use the Create button due to a bug in IE should now be able to use it. We have renamed it to "Post" and it takes you to a Post page, rather than just expanding the little icons in the menu bar like it used to. If anyone still can't get Post to work, please let us know.

A whole bunch of other little things were fixed in this release, and they will be detailed on the Revisions page soon.

Thank you!

nice updates
my only concern is if guests can comment on your work

No, guests still need to sign up to be able to actually do anything on the site.

*sighs and goes through and starts adjusting each and every single submission, one at a time, by hand so that he doesn't have to worry about minors browsing his smut*

Whether they click "I'm 18" when signing up, or when activating the ability see adult work as a guest, it's the same. I suppose it's an extra step to need an email but it won't stop most minors if they're determined. We're considering making Block the default when you upload.

Default 'blocked' would make sense.
I can see it not being that way for 'sale' items, but for general stuff it makes sense to 'gently encourage' people to sign up for the site, no?

Aww.. I really liked how "Create" expanded into the three different icons. =( Stupid IE always screws everything up. ~_~

Aha, was wondering why the server was dead earlier. Nice with the 'block guests' feature--- adds a little incentive to watch others for extra goodies ;) I always wonder why people would pop in on FA, fav a lot of things and then not even watch.... c___C

It's "guests" as in people who aren't logged in or don't have an account.  Not people who don't watch you.

I'm really not fond of Inkbunny's decision to put all my already uploaded work for views to guests.
And even less thrilled I have to go adjust all those submissions one by one so guests can't see them, really don't appreciate the sudden 'exposed' feeling.

Sorry guys but this should have been thought through, like put all the current submissions on hidden for guests even if they choose to view mature artwork and have a mass button to adjust this option, like you're doing with the 'make all selected submissions public' option.

We can set that to hidden for all your work if you like. Anyone who wants that done just open a support ticket and I'll do it asap.

Thanks for offering Starling, but I've already adjusted them myself one by one right after the changes.
It's good you listen to your clients. :)

*agrees wholeheartedly*
The 'mass adjust' option in gallery view is a really good idea.
It'd be nice if we could 'scrap' things this way as well.

Mmm yah I'll see if I can get those mass options into the next version!

You must be so sick of hearing me yap and throw in my two cents on everything. >.>;

Haha no. Don't stop. XD Most user's aren't honest about what they think. They just get go elsewhere and I never know what needed fixing.

I am accused of being many things, but quiet is rarely among them.
