Better User Features
- Problems can be downloaded in beautiful PDF or latex format.
- More sophisticated searches are possible.
- The full text (including LaTeX) of the problem pages are now searchable.
- Go on the Quick Tour to see how to do simple searches for words, phrases, AND searches, OR searches and Tag searches.
- Everyone (including non-Editors) can add comments to any page (including problems).
- Changes and comments can be tracked for individual pages and the site as a whole
- (either as RSS feeds or by clicking on RecentChanges in the bottom menu).
- Site web pages will print without navigation bars.
Problems Added, Fixed
- About 23 original problems were fixed (about 23 had missing tables or graphics).
- We’ve added quite a lot of problems.
- (2008-07-10) 206 problems from the Fall 1987 ESP worksheets by Mike Oehrtman.
Better Editor Features
- Authorized Editors can edit problems right in the browser in LaTeX, and even include figures (an Admin will have to upload the files).
- Editors can change and add web pages from the browser.
- They can have reasonable formatting and even have automatic Table of Contents (see this page!).
- Past versions of pages are kept and can be view, compared and restored.
- It’s a LOT easier for Admins to add problems from LaTeX documents.
Old Features We Kept
- There is a web form for entering searches.
- Search results show problem pictures right in listings.
- Search results came in 5s and not all hundred at once.
- EVENTUALLY. There is a great little shopping cart for problems.
- While you’re waiting, here is a workaround. Whenever you see a problem you like, add a comment to it. Then later you can find all your comments by searching for
comment yourname. It’s better than nothing!
Old Features We Dumped
- We used to have a lot of automatic hyperlinking. That turns out to be more annoying than helpful.
- rich, boolean and probabilistic searches
- automatic tagging of problems
- Adding more classified problems.
- better ways to explore tags and their relationships
