After serving the division for five years, Alex Zangeneh-Azam is leaving the Web Action Team. Alex has had his hand in the design of just about every web application created or refreshed since he arrived. He's also been our main customer service support person for Site Builder, Surveys, Blogs, Collaborative Tools and most recently, Adobe Connect.
Alex's cool temperament has earned him a great deal of praise over the years, and his departure will be felt by all of those he has assisted.
If you'd like to send Alex a note, his last day will be February 22, 2013. After that, he will be moving to his new PROGRAMMING position at UC Davis. After stewing in the web cave for the past five years, Alex has finally morphed...

We've made a few changes to Site Builder and our Blog system that are worth sharing with you. Indeed, we should probably Pin a Tweet to our Wall and throw it in one of our Circles.
We've upgraded the Sharing feature of Site Builder and the Blogs to allow for the inclusion of a Twitter handle. This is your Twitter ID, the name following the "@" symbol. You can use a Twitter ID to locate a profile on their site, like this example: http://twitter.com/ANRWebGuy.

For those of you who post a lot on the ANR Blogs you may have noticed a change on the Blog interface. The ability to add multiple Authors has been added to the Blogs. Each Author can be listed under any name the poster would like, even "King of the Universe" (should one feel the need to be listed as that).
When there are many authors sorting has been made easy with drag and dropping the author to the proper location. of course the arrows are always available if needed.
Here you can see an Author being edited. Everything can be edited to suit the need.
The ability to download ANR Blog Stats to Excel has been added to the ANR Blogs. The "Excel Download" link will download the stats from the page you are currently looking at. When viewing Blog stats and select "Excel Download". The stats downloaded will be the same as currently being viewed. This allows you to download the stats as you see them and as needed.
I know many have been wanting this ability. So I hope that you find this helpful!
We took some time to think through the best way to improve categories for the ANR Blogs. This took a while as there are many things to consider and many different ways people use categories in the ANR Blogs. In the end we decided to go with an auto complete system for the categories. So as one types in categories, the categories that have already been used in the Blog will be listed as categories that can be chosen. When a category is selected it will be added to the current list of categories.
When choosing a category from the list the mouse or the keyboard may be used to select a category. When using the keyboard; up / down arrow keys highlight the selected category and the "Tab" or...
