Number of donors goal tracking added

We've added new functionality to the Thermometer and Bar graph views to track towards a number of donors goal, rather than a financial goal.

Here's an example of a thermometer and bar graph with 38 donors towards a goal of 100:

Facebook sharing updated

We've updated the Facebook sharing to allow the campaign to be reposted to your timelines and refreshed rather than cached by Facebook, so at share-time the image is always up to date.

We also made changes to ensure your image, description paragraph, and title continue to be shown despite some changes by Facebook that broke that feature earlier.

Speed Enhancements

We've added some optimizations to our database that should see some significant performance enhancements when recalculating campaign totals. If you enter manual donations, remember to click Recalculate Totals when you're all done, or this will happen automatically when you get your next PayPal donation.

New Last 30 Day Campaign Range

We've now added a new campaign range to cover the last 30 days, the totals will shift daily to include just the last 30 days of donations, so if you use donor comments this gives everyone their full 30 days for the donation to be listed, unlike the monthly campaigns where a donation made at the end of the month isn't seen very long.

ISP Maintenance

Our web hosting provider is having some maintenance which could affect all services 11pm-3am Eastern:

MAINTENANCE WINDOW: Wednesday 16th November 2011 12:00AM - 04:00AM CST
PURPOSE OF WORK: Network Provider Maintenance
IMPACT OF WORK: Suboptimal routing to all hosting services, though no loss of connectivity is expected as redundant links will be utilized.
MAINTENANCE DESCRIPTION: Our network provider has provided the following details,

Our upstream provider, Suddenlink, will be performing hardware maintenance.

During this window, we will shut down the connection to Suddenlink and will bring it back online once their work is completed. This may result in two brief periods ( approximately one minute) of suboptimal routing as routes reconverge on the network. The remaining providers in our architecture will remain up, reducing impact.

Please accept on sincere apologies for any inconvenience caused.
