Moving Day Approaches

Site News   |  Wednesday, July 20, 2011

By Jillian Winn

We will be moving Signing Savvy to a new server this weekend. This may cause the site to be inaccessible for several hours. In reality, the transition should be much quicker (a few hours). We will begin the process late Friday evening when not many are relying on the site to minimize the downtime.

Once the transition is complete, the new server will provide increased performance and a more reliable service for you.

NOTE: The move will also benefit the Signing Savvy Mobile App.

UPDATE (Saturday-Morning): We are in the process of moving the site right now. Some features may not work as we work through the move. Everything should be working again by Sunday at the latest.

UPDATE (Saturday-Afternoon): Everything now should be transitioned to the new server and working (both the website and mobile app).

Enhancements to Word Lists

Site News   |  Monday, March 7, 2011

By Jillian Winn

Creating Word Lists and Sharing Word Lists, when combined with Flash Cards and Quizzing, are our most popular full member features. Today, we added a minor enhancement to creating word lists and a new shared word list of our own.

Creating word lists that are sorted by date

You can now create word lists that sort the word list by the date the words were added to the word list. This is in addition to the previous options of alphabetically or custom ordered word lists. When you view your word lists that are sorted by date, the word list will show the date each word was added to the word list. This may come in handy, for example, if you are teaching (or taking) a sign language class and you want your word list to reflect WHEN the words (signs) were introduced.

What was the Sign of the Day yesterday?

Part of the reason we added the new word list ordering option is so we could add a Sign of the Day word list. This new shared word list shows all of the signs of the day since the Signing Savvy site launched. This is a feature that a number of you have asked for. We are happy to be able to make it available to full members. This is one shared word list that you may want to bookmark.
