  • Patreon Hall Of Fame: a new section on the "About" page listing the amazing people who support Kanka on Patreon. #200


  • Exploration Mode: Improved the various "Exploration View" modes (locations, categories) to include a helper text explaining what the feature does, and adding some more enticing visual clues on what can be clicked. #203
  • Locations: Added an "Organisations" menu when viewing locations to view all orgs located in that location. #218
  • Images in rich text editor: Allow max-width and max-height to be set for responsive-sizes images.
  • Forms: It is now possible to "tab" to the rich select fields, allowing faster creation when on a computer.
  • Changed the field "sex" to "gender" on characters.
  • Pagination: Patrons can set their max pagination to 100. #200
  • Location Map: Patrons can now upload 10 MB maps to locations. #200

Bug Fixes

  • Fixed various UI issues.
  • Fixed errors on calendars with no week days causing errors.

  • Fixed character race filtering not working.
  • Fixed errors when deleting several races at the same time.
  • Fixed hiding location points in the "full view" not working.
  • Fixed an bug and error when deleting several entities at a time which deleted nested entities.
  • Fixed the "starter" entries now properly showing their foreign ids (locations, characters).

  • Fixed problems with moving location map points losing the label or location link. #216
