The Flares overhaul you probably didn't notice

Over the past four days Trevor has been knocking his head against a palm to update the ignite Flares engine many of you use to post and schedule news, events and other dynamic lists of stuff. Today we launched the update and you probably didn’t even know given the nature of the change.

When we set up a new type of Flare, it needs to be configured so posts list correctly, buttons display correctly, uploaded images are sized correctly and a few dozen other reasons.

While they functioned very well, they were inelegant and due for a thorough makeover.

Thanks to the ignite cloud application, we were able to successfully roll out the changes to everyone who uses the system at no cost to anyone.
