Howdy from all the CodeRanch staff, and welcome to the July edition of the CodeRanch Journal.

W h a t ' s . N e w?

We have had a lot of comments on the "new look" and what could be improved. We have decided to make the homepage configurable, and this works really well!! You can select the columns you would like to see and define how much space they should take and this will be saved in your personal "dashboard". Read all about it here: and here: There is more of this coming up for the Category and Forum listings.

Always wanted to know until where you have read in a certain thread? This is now possible for Pie users. Go to the Pie options and select: "Keep track of threads read on a thread by thread basis" and "Show, in a thread, how far you have viewed in the past".

Do you want to advertise your product? Have a look at our new automated advertising platform and start! It is easy and fast and reaches millions of our Coderanch viewers.
