Automated Home Offers New Features

In line with our commitment to continually improve and update the Automated Home website, we have just re-launched with a brand new database powered system. Here are the top 10 new features and improvements on the site!

1.STORIES ARCHIVE

It's now much easier to navigate to old stories. Everything is available listed by month right back to 1996.

2.IMPROVED SEARCH
The new search facility is much more comprehensive than last one and in testing finds many more results. In addition to searching stories it can pull results from the comments fields too.

3.NEW "TOP 10" SECTION
Now you can easily see which are the most read stories on the site. In addition, with the new voting system, you can rate stories and system will keep track of the highest rated results.

4.UPDATED AVANTGO PAGE
The AvantGo page now includes pictures and the entire story, not just the intro text. You'll need to edit your AvantGo setting - changing link depth to "1" and turning pictures on.

5.DOWNLOADS
The new improved downloads section has more items and is better organised. I hope to add some more categories and files here over the coming months too.

6.SUBMIT NEWS
It's now easy for anyone to submit their own story for the site. If you have an interesting story or press release simply post it to the site for our editors to consider.

7.FORUMS
Forums have never really taken off in the UKHA community because the mailing list is so strong. But here's a new set of Forums to try. We've added a few areas like "X10" and "Buy and Sell", if you have any suggestions for new forums let us know.

8.USER ACCOUNTS
If you are one of the people that regularly post comments to the site then take a minute to setup a free account (the same account is used for the Forums).

9.NEW BACKEND RSS NEWS FEED
You can use the headlines from Automated Home on your own website with the new Backend feed.
