DeafRead Extra changes

I visit DeafRead Extra to find offhand or interesting posts. I never fail to find one on each of my visits. Anyway, I did three changes regarding DeafRead Extra. I hope you’ll like them.
Instead of clicking on the box to vote for a DeafRead Extra post, the box to the left of the title now displays the number of visits that post has received from DeafRead Extra. Read about how visits are different than pageviews, in that visits are counted only once per visitor at DeafRead.
The link to vote is still available. It is to the left of the title. e.g. “2 Votes”
At a blog’s DeafRead Profile, you now can filter that blog for 1) Published 2) Extra and 3) All posts. At DeafRead Blog Subscriptions, blogs are listed. Click any of them to view its DeafRead Profile. On the right side, under “DeafRead Active Posts” and “DeafRead Total Visits”, click on the drop down to filter the blog’s posts. Example: y3′s DeafRead Profile
In the middle column (or, if you like, the second sidebar from the left), we display the number of total posts moderated in the last 24 hours. I’ve added the total count of Extra posts published in the last 24 hours. In the below image, “All (28)” will continue to reflect the total of both Vlogs and Blogs shown on DeafRead, and exclude those of DeafRead Extra. Below, you can see that when I clipped a snapshot of the buttons, 11 posts were published to DeafRead Extra in the last 24 hours.
Enjoy the improvements!
