Feature of the week: Updating Privacy in batchedit page

We have added a new option to the batchedit page** : Set Viewability.
You can select ‘Set Viewabilty’ from the drop down list and this allows you to set the same privacy to several posts at once.

This new feature might be useful after joining a new group. In this case the user can set the privacy of several posts to the new group at once. Also it will be a nice feature for users who do not want to let others know, before they publish their work. In this case they can set previously private posts to public after privacy is no longer necessary.
In addition to the above use cases, it can be applied to posts in PUMA, where posts are stored as private by default. It is troublesome to put them individually to public. This feature saves a lot of time and clicking in such a case!

** Batchedit page can be reached by firstly clicking on the small cog-wheel symbol above a post-list ( On the own BibSonomy page) and then selecting the ‘edit own entries …’.

TYPO3 extension BibSonomy CSL supports export for Endnote

The new release of the TYPO3 extension BibSonomy CSL supports exports of publication in the Endnote citation style. In the setup of the front-end plugin you can now enable (next to links to the abstract, to BibTeX, or following a publications URL) also a link to the Endnote export.

Upon request, the exported data will be fetched directly from BibSonomy/PUMA using AJAX. The screenshot shows how a publication might look like on your homepage, with Endnote export enabled and requested:

Feature of the week: Sortable post list (via API)

If you want to process BibSonomy data our API is the place to look for it. Various informations can be received through it. One example are post lists belonging to user x. These post lists can now be sorted by using the keys 

An example for retrieving bookmarks sorted by title can be seen below: 

Additional information on how to use our API can be found on our help pages.

Sorting post lists via the API works the same way as sorting posts on BibSonomy:
