Issue 76

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.


This week we've been working on some key features and updates for WomenWhoCode.com.
With the job board, we focused on creating a more useful job description field, by rewriting the text to better guide their actions and adding a character countdown that shows them how close they are to their character limit when writing job descriptions. We also fixed a minor error that allowed the creation of job posts with 0 perks.
On the design end, we updated the style of markdown lists by adding a margin, and H1 and H4 tags by giving them anchor tags outlines. We also added labels to replace divs on the Resources page in the mobile and desktop view.
On a more fundamental level we worked on improving the security of our product by updating to a newer version of the redcarpet gem, and we changed our configuration so that images uploaded with the WYSIWYG editor are added to our online bucket.
