Build26 was just posted

I just put up Build 26 - primarily a UI refresh, but there are plenty of bug fixes and otherenhancements in the mix as well.

Things you may want to check out:

  • Updated slideshow -  You'll have to install Silverlight if you don't already have it - the page should prompt you when you load it.
  • A bit simplified image upload page with progress bar
  • New look and feel

First, let you know about a few changes that were deployed prior to today

  • Added link to Mom's condo's web page..
  • Something is wrong with the ie 6 specific style for the menu - causes ie 6 to LOCK when processing the li class="AspNet-Menu-Leaf". Disabling it for now (which means menus in IE 6 will not look very good).
  • Migrated home db server to SQL2005 - no code changes required at this point
  • Updated copyright metatags on site (data only)
  • Fix in Image\GetImage.aspx.cs that was causing 'new picture' emails to have broken links

  • Updated to preview resume on EACH page of editing (at bottom)
  •  Added move up/down; edit options to EditWorkExperience.aspx, EditWorkExperience.aspx, OtherSections.aspx, EditOtherSection.aspx, EducationSection.aspx
  • Updated resumeprogress.ascx to not cause page validation

  • Added Resume.Clone() method to allow me to work on multiple versions

  • Altered UI on RequestAccountPage a bit; 
  • Gave all pages except the home page a 10px left padding on the content region.
