Few days back we had taken a survey on PHPCamp to know the feedback of site till now and how we can make site more useful for our users and we got some useful ideas which users actually needed in PHPCamp. One of the feature user suggested was bookmarking or marking article as their favorite so that they can browse them later.
So on demand of our users we are launching favorite section on PHPCamp now users can bookmark their favorite article on PHPCamp itself and read it later without making efforts to search some particular article they liked.
Your favourite list is displayed on your profile page, check mine

We had put the toolbar in order to give our readers a chance to makeup their mind and vote on articles after they have read it. But it was never really used.
So we have finally removed it. Do let us know what you think of it, or anything else that can make PHPCamp more useful to you.
We are listening.

We have already launched our Bookmarklet three months ago. Now we have a bunch of tools and buttons for you, including the enhanced Bookmarklet.
So what are the tools and buttons:
- PHPCamp Button
- Bookmarklet (Enhanced)
- PHPCamp Widget
Let me describe ‘em one by one:
Now your visitors can directly vote/submit your articles without coming to our site. Just add the following line of code:
in your page and you will have a votebox available in your page for your users.
Yes, the bookmarklet is more enhanced now. We have received some feedbacks from our campers saying that they must get the option to vote instead of the submit form, if the article is already submitted. Thanks for your feedbacks and it is implemented. What more? We have also given a credit to our camper who has helped us grow by submitting the article Cheers to our campers!!!
Now you can also show the boiling PHP articles on your blog or social networking site. All you have to do is add the following line of code:
in your page.
And you will get something like:

A month back we released our first bookmarklet which was very basic, so this month, Aman decided to take things in his hand and he created a shiny bookmarklet for us.
It now allows you to select the text in an article that you would like to set as description.
Drag the link above to your bookmarks toolbar, and see the look. Here is the teaser
Attach twitter handle
Yes, now you can show your twitter handle in you profile page, we hope it will help you get few more followers .
We thought that since campers are taking time to share articles, which get’s tweeted to PHPCamp’s twitter id, so why not put the id of the twitter users in the message, and let them share the glory of sharing the articles.
Get notified on comments
Now you will be notified whenever a camper leaves or shares his/her thought on articles that you have shared with community.
And, off-course we have update the the theme of this blog as well.
well folks this is for now, we will be adding few more features and continue to improve PHPCamp in coming weeks.
leave your feedback below, on twitter or facebook, we are listening.
