Tweaks to Essay Announcements

Tweaks to Essay Announcements

Joe suggested that the automated announcement of new essays be tweaked: -It should include login info. -It should direct you to the login page first, and then, once you are logged in, you should be redirected automatically to the essay itself. As it is now, if you click on the link in the announcement itself, and you are not logged in, you can get an access denied page. Then, once you log in, you have to hunt down the essay. -It should include the name of the author, not just the name of essay. -It should only go out if text has actually been pasted into the body field of the "Add Essay." (Davin, I noticed that you uploaded documents on your recent additions, but didn't paste them in. Is this because of the size of the files? Anyway, that's what prompted this point.)
