Hyperlink images in your wiki pages, new TinyMCE Editor, and new Flot stats chart

Just a few minutes ago, we deployed the latest version of the CodePlex software.

Work item #14459: Wiki hyperlinking from an image

Thanks to a voting campaign that started on Twitter on April 9, this work item became our #1 most requested feature almost overnight. Because we use Agile to deploy a new release every 3 weeks, we were able to provide a quick turnaround to this request.

This is basic format for image hyperlinking:

[image:<Friendly Name>|<image name or link to the image>|<URL pointed to by image>]

For example:

[image:My Image|http://www.domain.com/myimage.jpg|http://www.domain.com]

[image:My Image|my_image.jpg|http://www.domain.com]

New Homepage Tweaks

We made some tweaks to our homepage. http://www.codeplex.com 

The major change I’ll call out is that we moved the project search to the left, since it is the primary action people visiting the homepage will take.

  1. I totally love the new chart! I actually took one of those surveys and my only complaint was that it was hard to hover the chart dots and get a response. So much better now.

    Statistics became much more readable. Now, if only you stopped using that variable-width font for source code…
