Image Gallery in Activity Feed

Just a quick Monday-morning update. If you click on image thumbnails on the activity stream you’ll now get an Image Gallery.

The Image Gallery looks something like this:

The image gallery is touch-enabled and works on mobile devices. You can still download images by clicking on the filename at the bottom of each image or by right-clicking and choosing “save link as”. If you add a mix of documents and images as attachments to a comment, only the images will appear in the gallery, the other files will be available for download as before.

Papyrs Real Time Activity Stream

Today we’re introducing a couple of improvements to the Activity Stream.

feed

The most important change is that the Activity Stream is has become real time. What does this mean? It means that whenever posts a comment, submits a form, creates or updates a page the activity feed will get updated immediately! This includes discussions on pages that use the Discuss widget. This means you can finally have real-time conversations on Papyrs!

When the real time feed is working you should see a green light next on the Feed page (number 1. in the screenshot). If you don’t see the green light (even after refreshing the feed page) then your browser doesn’t support real time notifications.

We also added yellow envelope icons next to the groups on the right hand side of the activity feed. Click those icons to toggle whether you want to receive email notifications for activity in that group (number 2. in the screenshot).

Finally, new activity gets highlighted in the feed so you can easily recognize which items are new. New items have a brightly colored bar to on their left side (number 3. in the screenshot). The color of the bar depends on on your site’s Theme settings.

That’s it for now. Thanks for reading!

Requirements: A recent version of Chrome, Safari (Mac or iOS), Firefox, or Microsoft Edge.

Two-factor Authentication in Papyrs

Today we introduced two-factor authentication which you can enable for extra security. With two-factor authentication two different things (factors) are required to log in: something you know (your password) and something you have (your phone).

So when two-factor authentication is enabled you can no longer log in just by entering your password, you will also need to enter a time-based security code from your phone.

Apps
Our implementation is compatible with OTP apps such as:

  • Google Authenticator for iOS,
  • Google Authenticator for Android, and
  • Microsoft Authenticator for Windows Phone

Papyrs usesĀ Time based One Time Password (TOTP).

Enabling two-factor authentication

1. Go to Settings > General. Then Select “Enable two-factor authentication”.

Two-Factor Authentication in Settings

2. Enter your password and scan the QR code in your OTP smartphone App.

Two-Factor Authentication Scan QR code

3. Enter your OTP security code from your smartphone app.

Two-Factor Enabled

4. Success! Two-factor authentication is now enabled.

That’s it for this update. More coming soon!
