I thought it would be worthwhile to jot down the changes to be made here.
Six word stories
Chat, in some capacity
Relational sidebars -- This is a big project and one that is important to look, feel of site, ie., when you click on content, related content is shown to the right. GG is working on it.
A full profile page like the one on the old site, including who visited recently
SPROUT a story option -- this will be coming
Direct record -- install it only if it works well (as in perfectly)
Dashboard -- was replaced with a new configuration
New dashboard needs to be checked, specifically to what happens with Add a block; it appears it lists all that are on the page but no others.
