We also tweaked the QR Code reader a little, which should now run faster.
Stay tuned for more news in the following feature of the week posts.

today I introduce you a fresh baked feature, the opportunity to add links to BibSonomy posts to your discussions. This is especially handy if you want to connect some of your post, like recommending a related paper.
How to do that? Easy question!
First of all, you have to go to the post you want to write a review about. For me, this is the book "Writing That Works". Then you click on the stars to start writing a discussion.
As you see, until now this publication had no review at all. That is really a pity. A good publication or web page deserves to get a good feedback, and the bad ones as well.
Okay, lets continue on our tutorial. You write your review as usual. To add a link, just use the Wikipedia syntax and frame your link with doubled square brackets.
As you see, there is no "http://" and stuff like that. We made it like this to prevent spammers from misusing this wonderful feature and append advertisements to your publications. Just use the part of the URI that begins after "http://www.bibsonomy.org/". In my case this is "url/2536259b61404196b5a7e1a95e5d17dc". A publication would have "bibtex/" instead of "url/" as prefix.
Basically, that's it. I hope you enjoy our new feature and keep in mind: Every post deserves a good feedback.

After sucessfully decoding the QR-Code, you'll hear the "snap sound" and the post that belongs to your publication will have been added to your clipboard.
When writing a paper for your studies you search for related work and references. Create posts on BibSonomy to get a digital representation of your reference collection. Procede by printing these references with an embedded QR Code. Finally you can put together the papers you actually want to cite by scanning them with the QR Code scanner.

- The page is now completely scrollable again.
- Preview pictures of publications are only displayed on larger screens.
- The sidebar is no longer undisplayed on smaller screens to keep all navigation (tags, similar tags, discussion pages, etc.) available.
The non-scrollable version of BibSonomy might come back sometime as one of two or more options to choose from in your personal settings. Our efforts to redesign BibSonomy continue and we hope to see some results within the next months.
Next to these design-minded changes, the new release includes:
- An all new experimental feature: QR Codes for publications and a QR Code scanner on the clipboard.
- A first draft for referencing publications or bookmarks in discussions (reviews and comments (take a look).
- A first draft for posting publications by uploading a .pdf file.
Stay tuned for the next feature of the week posts to learn more about these new possibilities.
