Issue 70

We are building features for the Women Who Code community and we want to highlight that work with our stakeholders, you! THANK YOU to our contributors for dedicating their valuable time to help us build tech a place where women can excel.

You can follow all of our work on github. Below are a few snippets of our awesome features.


We made an exciting change to the job board this week. After UX and UI testing with actual users we determined that there was a desire for people to see how many search results show up when a topic on the job board is being searched. This can now be seen live on: https://www.womenwhocode.com/jobs - Related to that is an upgraded ability by WWCode admin's to track statistics and usage of the search function.

One change we made with broader applications is to build in a system for giving blog posts, jobs, and any other content posted on the site a life cycle. This will eventually allow posts to be scheduled for a set time and then be set to taken down at a preordained time.

We continued working on profiles this week, adding in the email column, and allowing the display of the address, as well as searching by member's email address. We also set it up so all new members are automatically associated with a profile.

In addition we did some work fixing small issues that were noticed, including a fix for blog post formatting errors caused by markdown use, and removal of extraneous files to improve system performance.
