Silent Candles No Longer Mailed, Hotmail and MSN Woes

Filed under: Uncategorized — artwells @ 8:34 pm

Nshrine.com will no longer send out “silent” candle notifications for your shrine Candles with a thought or message attached will still be mailed as always, but those placed with no words will no longer be sent via email. Shrines not set to send email notifications will not send email, as always.

“Silent” candles will still appear in the shrine, and in the shrine’s RSS feed, but the email will no longer be sent. This was inspired by shrine maintainer suggestion, as well as recent delivery problems with some email service providers.

Probably related to this, Hotmail and MSN email addresses are currently not receiving email from nshrine.com. I am currently corresponding with their administrators to get this straightened out.

Bugfix release

Filed under: Uncategorized — artwells @ 8:57 am

Internet Explorer 7 users should now have full access to color changing tools on their shrines.  A conflict between the color wheel, the excellent farbtastic, and the odd manner in which Internet Explorer 7 uses jquery‘s offsetParent, made the color wheel act poorly at best. It should now be fine.

Also new is the ability to change your email address through the “Settings” tab of you profile change.

Gift Candles

Filed under: Uncategorized — artwells @ 10:12 am

Now you can add special “gift candles” to your favorite shrines.   Each candle removes advertising from the shrines for one week (or adds a week to the ad-free time if any).

Simply login in to your account and look for the ‘Make This A Gift Candle’ checkbox when you place a candle in your favorite shrine.  When you check that box, you’ll see a special gold base on your candle and all ads will be removed.
To see one, see the candle placed by artwells in the hope shrine.
(This is also a good opportunity to see what an ad-free shrine looks like, if you haven’t seen one lately.)

More gift candles can be purchased for your account by visiting your profile page and clicking on the ‘Gift Candles’ tab.  Here you will also see how many gift candles you have left.  Gift candles can be purchased for other accounts by visiting that account’s ‘Gift Candle’ tab.

Enjoy. As always, do let us know if you have any questions or suggestions.
