Pressible 1.0

| June 1, 2010

We pushed new code over the weekend, and now it’s official: Pressible 1.0 is here! There are a lot of things we’re excited about, but most notably:

  • Twitter integration. Pressible will tweet for you when you publish a new post.
  • Header makeover. Each Pressible site now allows for uploading a header image. Currently a default mask determines how the image is displayed, but look for additional options in the near future.
  • Pressible.org makeover. The root site now features notable posts from across the network.
  • “Contact.” A new link on Pressible sites allows users to contact the site administrator. This is the easiest way to add new authors to a site.

And don’t forget recent developments such as Reposting and Media-enabled Excerpts. Taken together, we think this feature set justifies its “1.0” moniker (though, in truth, we’re already fixing a few bugs). So, you ask, what can users expect? For the next few months, you can expect a relatively stable feature-set as we look forward to learning how Pressible is being used by its current 153 users (authoring 81 sites).

Oh, and one additional feature we’ll probably push sometime this month is the Data Dashboard (that we mentioned here) – a public-facing summary of site activity that authors and visitors can use to better understand a site and its content.

Lastly, THANKS to Pressible’s current users for supporting the project, and giving us great feedback to help us make it even better.
