A "New!" marker for the adopt menu, and other updates

Postby Nick » Tue Sep 01, 2020 9:43 am

We now show a "New!" sticker on the "adopt" link in the main menu when there have been new pets released since you've last visited that page. This should make it easier to discover pets that are released mid-month. It'll look like this:

You'll first see it once the September pets are released.

This feature is not ready quite yet for our CSBusiness, CSSpace and CSMobile themes, but it should be added in within the next day or so!

As part of this update it now also remembers which of the species pages you've visited, so the "new" icons on the adoptables index will disappear once you've visited those species (previously they were just marked as "new" for 7 days after release whether you visited them or not).

We've now added example images and explanation text to our "Other" and "Hatchery" pages, thanks for the suggestion!

We've now released high-resolution versions of our CSHallow and CSChristmas themes, so if you are visiting Chicken Smoothie on a high-resolution screen like on a MacBook the header image should now be much sharper and the header text clearer.

Awesome! Hey nick, just a question, when I went into the hatchery thing, it showed me the growth stages for the chameleons and for the western(?) dragons. But when I went back to the main adopt page, reloaded and went back into the hatchery place, it showed me the growth stages for the chameleons but instead of the dragons, it showed me the macaws? And sometimes the chickens? Is that part of the new features?

Yep, if there isn't a second species up for adoption at the moment, it just picks a random growth example to show you instead.

Thank you for this. It's a really nice touch.

I see that this change was made a few hours ago and someone mentions the hatchery growth charts. Well, none are showing up and based on the comment about it something is supposed to even without adopts available for them?
