We’ve got an increasingly-large number of blogs being worked on by various administrators right now, which is great to see. In putting them together, we’ve heard a number of concerns that we’ve been working to address on our end of things. Here’s some of the changes we’ve made to the platform since we first started making it available:
– After receiving several reports of excessive blog spam, we’ve installed a new spam blocker on our system. Please let us know if you don’t see an improvement so we can investigate another solution.
– We’ve installed a plug-in for SlideShare, enabling you to embed Powerpoint presentations from SlideShare on your blog. Just use the “Embed in wordpress.com” shortcode found with the original link on the Slideshare website.
– Plug-ins in general is going to be a larger issue moving forward, as we’ve had people importing posts where certain videos/media don’t appear. We’re working with our programmer to find the best solutions we can so that you can embed the content that works for you. We’ll keep you posted.
– Finally, it seems that there is something wonky with our Blogger import. We are working to fix this as soon as possible.
A reminder that any questions/concerns you have can be sent to email@example.com and we’ll do our best to address them. Happy blogging!
