Hello to all eight of us! Thankfully, we’re all friends, because I know the site looks like a construction zone right now. We clearly haven’t got all the drywall up yet, so thanks for your patience! It’s two months away from the official launch in April, so that’s all I’ve got to say about that for now… You should expect to see some radical changes on the front end here in due time.
You can build your personal sites without having to worry about the main site. The architecture is solid, industry standard stuff, and there’s a clear upgrade path when things start taking off. The security is tight, there’s caching in place, and everything is being backed multiple times each day. Stable for a month now, and I even upgraded servers without a hitch, so the foundation looks good.
Despite appearances on the outside, there’s been some big changes on the inside:
All the themes are all installed. There are 75 free themes available to all members, and there are another 79 themes available on the upgrade (Pro Sites) path for people who need them for eCommerce or more business oriented sites. Yes, different themes have different capabilities.
All the major program plugins (Apps) are installed. Theses let you to add additional functionality to your website. More on that later, but we’re good to go for most things today. If there’s a feature you don’t see, but need, just talk to me. Not everything is enabled, and this is an evolving market, with new things coming out all the time.
