This week, we've made some cool new features available for everyone. We've made some dashboard improvements, like editing posts directly from the dashboard.
One of the most requested feature improvements was adding author profile photos to post. This is especially nice for blogs with lots of authors, and adds that special visual impact to your blogging.
We've fixed a lot of bugs with this release as well. Thanks to those of you who hung in there through some slowness and commenting issues in the past couple of days. If you're still seeing those issues, please let our TypePad One support team know by opening a help ticket.
Other fixes of note:
- Improving post by email: we've got great ways to post on the fly, and posting by email is straightforward and simple.
- Images: we had reports of borders being cropped out in the wrong places. This is fixed.
- Auto-Save: now it's more clear what's being recovered in the unfortunate case that you lose a post.
Take a sneak peek at our newest theme for our Beta testers after the jump!
Known issues: some people are having problems with TypePad Connect comments appearing. If this is the case, please let our support team know, so that we can help you fix this.
We've also a super-simple way for you to join our Beta team. Which we know you'll want to do when you see the cool new theme we just released for Beta: Chroma.
When you pick this theme, you'll upload an image to use that will
automagically change the color layout of your blog, and let you pick
the colors you like best for your new theme.
When you're part of our Beta team, there are some bugs and hiccups and things bubbling on the burner in the virtual test kitchen, so be sure that you're ready for being on the bleeding edge. Save copies of designs while you're testing, and you can switch back anytime. The new way to join beta is to go to your account page and click the button that will ask if you'd like to join our beta team. It's just one click to opt in or out anytime.
Have a safe Halloween weekend, everyone!
