Current project status

Hi everyone,

here’s a little update on the current status of the FlatPress project.

FlatPress itself

Version 1.1 “Da capo” runs stable and doesn’t seem to have major bugs. (See the open issues on GitHub.) Thus, we can concentrate on overhauling language packs and plugins.
Also, there may be some SEO improvements to the default theme Leggero soon.

Support forum

Our new support forum got populated quite nicely. I am very happy to receive your feedback and suggestions on FlatPress! Also, there a lot of experienced users out there trying to answer incoming questions. Thank you all for supporting each other in this friendly and productive manner!

In order to prevent bot registrations, I changed the behaviour of the registration page. Please let me know if you experience problems registering.

Regarding the old support forum I have good news and bad news: Although I got the forum itself running again, I am still searching for the “everything is read-only” switch. (Vanilla experience, anyone?)
I’m still working on it - it would be great to have back this huge pool of FlatPress know-how.

Public relations

The German-speaking, Twitter-using FlatPressers may have noticed: FlatPress is now listed at Heise Download, one of the biggest German software portals. You are very welcome to rate FlatPress there.
If you know more of such software sites (in any language), please let them know about FlatPress! We still need to make FlatPress more visible to the world.

In retrospect …

In my first blog posting here on flatpress.org, I described my plan to stabilize the software and to revive the community. Although not as quick as I hoped, this seems to have worked quite well.
Thank you all for supporting me in any way!
Let us keep working together to maintain and evolve a great little blogging engine - that may not fit any need, but ours perfectly :)
