This week we have released a bunch of small improvements to the site, some of which represent significant improvements to the back end of the site.
The largest release is that we have replaced the case viewing engine to one similar to that used in presentation mode. This now means:
- stacks will start loading from the key image (or middle image if a key image has not been selected); this means that you will get to the important part of the stack straight away rather than having to start at the very top (often blank) image.
- scrolling will be touch responsive on mobile devices (phones / tablets); this will be a huge improvement as previously scrolling was impractical.
We have instituted a unique radiopaedia ID (rID) for all cases and exposed this in our case information box (to the right of the case images).
The box is now collapsed by default, as we plan to put all sorts of additional info in there which is not needed for general browsing. Keeps things nice and neat.
The rID is an excellent way to keep track of where you got images from in a presentation.
To make this even easier we have also included rID in the 'download image' attribution links.
Presentation mode has had a couple of minor tweaks. Firstly the size of the text has been increased (1) and will scale according to your screen size. This will be easier on the eye and much better when presenting cases on projectors.
Secondly we have changed the attribution at the bottom right corner. The contributing user's name (2) is now a blue clickable link to the contributor's profile, their supporter status is indicated (3) and the rID is exposed (4). Clicking the rID takes you to the case in view mode.
There is much more to come, so stay tuned for an every bigger and better radiopaedia.org
Thanks for your continued support.
