Coming Tomorrow: Design Enhancements to Make TypePad Faster and Simpler

As we continue to make TypePad faster and simpler to use we want to give you a heads up about some changes you will see in our next product update tomorrow.

Skip the ‘Sign In' link

Tired of having to click on the sign-in link every time you visit So are we. If you're already logged into TypePad you'll be automatically redirected to your dashboard when you visit

A Simplified Sign In page

If you do need to sign-in, you'll notice a fresh new look on the sign-in page.

Compose, front and center

To make it easier to quickly share text, photos, or a video we've created a simpler compose box and put it right on the dashboard. Don't worry: the normal compose is still available.

Manage My Blogs

The fastest way to a page is a single click so we've added direct links to the most popular blog management pages on the new "Manage My blogs" dashboard. You can quickly access the stats, design, compose, posts, settings, and comments pages, for each of your blogs.


Stay in the Know

We want you to be the first to know about new tips and updates to TypePad. Starting tomorrow all members will automatically follow the TypePad Team and see updates from Everything TypePad in the recent activity feed. You can choose to unfollow us if you'd like.

We've got some other exciting announcements coming soon so keep an eye on your recent activity feed and Everything TypePad.

I think the Quick Compose feature also strips HTML from incoming mail-to-blog posts.


I'm liking the changes to the dashboard, thank you!!! Can you put a quick link to "email this post" at the bottom of each post that gets published or is it already available? I had this on Blogger and I miss it. Also an "edit this post" button on the bottom of each post is another invaluable Blogger tool that I miss.

I would love to see TypePad create a few magazine-style blogs or allow for such modifications to those with Pro account under the content module.
I also would love simply click and drag my post footer and place it below the title like many other blogs out there.

I love all the new enhacements so far! :)


I totally agree with you. I couldn't find any really stunning stlye blog templates to use. Trying to design my own it is just too time consuming and the result may be disappointing.


Typepad seems to be getting too "easier, faster and simpler" for me. Instead of 1 click to access the full posting feature, it takes 3, instead of 2 clicks to add a photo it takes 4, this is progress? After 6 years of enjoying your services, I think I am going to be looking at alternatives as this is just not what I need.
