Facebook login added

If you’re like me and you just don’t want to have, keep track of and think about the security of yet another web site login, a new addition to DanceMinder may interest you.  Facebook login.

You can now choose to use your Facebook account to log into DanceMinder and you’ll immediately be granted user privileges.

Just click on the Facebook icon on that you’ll see on most pages and you’ll be taken to Facebook where you can authorize access to your basic information. You’ll then be taken back to DanceMinder where you’ll be logged in as a DanceMinder user.

It’s that simple and you’ll immediately be able to use DanceMinder as a full user.

Update Sep 3, 2012

There have been several style updates to make DanceMinder more mobile-friendly.

  1. The biggest change is to the navigation menu which will change to icon-only on smaller screens.
  2. The logo and social networking block will be hidden on smaller devices.
  3. The menu so there are fewer top-level items and ‘home’ has been replaced with an icon.
  4. The display of posts from the blog have also been made more attractive.

You can see these changes by viewing the site on your phone, viewing on a tablet and rotating your device or changing your browser window size when viewing the site at your desk.

This is all groundwork and housecleaning before the next round of major changes to the site.
