New site features

I have added three visible features to the site for Authenticated users.

They are;

Instant Messages:It allows registered, active users to send short messenges to each other.

The Instant Messages are sent via a messaging block that allows you to select the user and then send a message to that user. The message appears at the top of the next page viewed by that user.

Chat Box: allows visitors to chat in an HTML interface.

Currency Convertor: provides you with currency exchange rates. It relies on Yahoo! Finance for getting the currency exchange data.

I have added some other features in the background mainly to do with troll and spam control and fixing bugs in the upgrade from 4.6 to 4.7.2.

If there are any other features that you think could be useful let me know.

As much at home writing editorials as being the subject of them, Cam has won awards, including the Canon Media Award for his work on the Len Brown/Bevan Chuang story.  And when he’s not creating the news, he tends to be in it, with protagonists using the courts, media and social media to deliver financial as well as death threats.

They say that news is something that someone, somewhere, wants kept quiet.   Cam Slater doesn’t do quiet, and as a result he is a polarising, controversial but highly effective journalist that takes no prisoners.

He is fearless in his pursuit of a story.

Love him or loathe him.  But you can’t ignore him.
