Here’s how to change the visual appearance of your Community Tools website:
Site’s background image is set in group settings. If there’s no image set for current group, the main group’s image is used. To change, enter the group and choose Edit. You can upload new image or change the current one.
Site name and slogan
Both can be set under Configuration > System > Site information (or add /admin/config/system/site-information to your site web address).
New mapping technology
The focus of this version was on changing the base tehnology behind our map and mapping functions. This gives us more flexibility in this version as well as provides a solid foundation to move forward with more advanced functions in future releases. Here’s what’s new in beta 3:
New features in beta 2 include:
A daily newsletter about content changes and new comments is sent to users who can subscribe to groups, tools and individual posts. Group managers are notified about new users and subscription requests.
Events attendee list
User can now mark themselves as attending an event. A list of attendees is displayed on the event page.
Reworked gallery now shows document files in addition to images and videos.

We've improved CT 2.0 internal logic and structure. New user interface is radically redesigned.
We gave up displaying the half-width map on each page and show a small map widget related to each post instead. In addition, there is a full-page map displaying all the site information on one page.
We've been working on customizing site design options. You can personalize your site by changing colorschemes and background visual.

Community Forge'l ja Community Toolsil on hea meel teada anda kavatsusest arendada koostöös tarkvaraplatvormi, mis toetab kohalike kogukondade tegevusi ja parandab infovahetust.

Community Forge and Community Tools are pleased to announce their intention to work together on a software platform to support the activities of real-world communities.

It’s been couple of months now since our last release. During the summer months we’ve been busy wireframing and planning out the next major relase of Community Tools.
Version 2 will bring radically redesigned user interface. First, we give up displaying the half-width map on each page and show a small map widget related to each post instead. In addition, there will be one full-page map displaying all the site information in one place. Also, we are working on customizing the site desing - we want each CT site being unique and personal.
