Integration of OAuth. We recently integrated OAuth to provide faster access to bettercodes.org. OAuth (Open Authorization) is an open standard for authorization. It allows users to access and use bettercodes.org without having to hand out their credentials, typically username and password. (Find more information about OAuth here: http://oauth.net/). The special OAuth plugin was developed by us and also provided to our friends of WordPress and Buddypress (see here). We hope that much more developers will take the chance to become a member of bettercodes.org.
Currently the bettercodes.org OAuth supports credentials and log-ins from popular services: OpenID, Facebook Connect, Twitter, LinkedIn, Yahoo, Windows Live and Google Friend Connect. We will add new providers on a continuing basis.
Improved Site Search with Apache Solr. We received some feedback that our search does not fit your requirements. To let you find content even faster we improved the site search with Apache Solr faceted search. This powerful feature enables all users to search quickly for content and all stuff site wide or in specific sections. Just check out the search bar and try the new autocomplete search.
