In the spirit of the season, today we added a new feature to TypePad: you can now share your Amazon Wish List with your readers and friends. Through the combined magic of TypePad and Amazon, with a few clicks you can have a selection of items from your Wish List appear in the sidebar of your weblog. There’s no need to hunt down your cryptic thirteen digit Amazon Wish List identifer -- all you need is the email address that you've associated with your Wish List, and TypePad does all the work.

Internet Explorer users will be happy to hear this handy little tip: many of the same keyboard shortcuts you take for granted in Microsoft Word, also work when editing a post in TypePad. For example, use Ctrl-b while you are typing to toggle bold font face on and off; and the same is true for Ctrl-i (italics), and Ctrl-u (underline).
For those of you who have really active and talkative audiences visiting your blogs, you can always view a list of comments and trackbacks on a post-by-post basis by navigating to the "Edit Post" page. However, for those of you looking for an easier way to see all the comments and trackbacks coming into your blog, navigate to Weblogs > Manage > List Comments or List Trackbacks. From those screens you can more easily manage all of the comments and trackbacks coming into a blog you administer.
Following our announcement last week, the TypePad team at Six Apart is happy to announce the release of our 2004 Holiday Promotions. Under the Buy One Get One Free promotion, subscribers who renew or upgrade their TypePad account for up to one year will also receive a one year subscription at the same level to give as a gift. Under the Give the Gift of TypePad promotion, existing TypePad subscribers are free to buy as many TypePad subscriptions as they wish at great holiday prices. One year subscriptions start at just $39; that's just $3.25 per month! They make great gifts for the kiddies... and grand-ma too.

We here at TypePad constantly seek to improve upon and add to our selection of design templates, and today we are happy to announce a new series of winter themed photo-album styles (Candy Cane, Elegant, Snowman, and Winter Wonderland). These new designs are perfect for the season, and are an excellent way to display your favorite snapshots from family gatherings, gift-opening extravaganzas, and ski trips.
To select one of the new templates, in Design, click on the "Style" link and choose a template from the pull-down menu. When you've found the one you like, click "Save Changes" and TypePad will apply the design to your album automatically.
