A few updates

It’s Labor day so we’ve been working extra hard for you. Here are a few of the latest improvements on WordPress.com:

  • Managing links works better.
  • You can now use extended entries with the “more” WYSIWYG button.
  • You now get less generic profile information on registration.
  • Invites are a lot smarter — it prefiles a lot of information for people you invite.
  • When you invite someone you’re automatically added to their blogroll on their new blog.
  • Feedback form works in IE.
  • The cool fade I alluded to before is now in full effect. (Delete some more posts and comments.)
  • It should be faster now (and we haven’t even moved to the new servers yet).

All the electricity problems have been solved in the new colo and thanks to the super-human Jason Hoffman everything has been racked and stacked and we’ll begin configuring them this week.

  1. Just tested out the feedback link. I love how the color fades. Pretty nice. I’m enjoying WP.com so far. I can’t wait to see what else you add to it. Hope you’re doing well! – Kathy


  2. Actually the delete function appears to be broken for me. When I hit it it does delete but doesn’t do any cool fade. I get the dialog and accept that but then I get an “error on page” message in the status bar (line 48, Char 3, Object does not support this action on benriga.wordpress.com/wp-admin/edit.php). I have to hit refresh to see that the item has in fact been deleted. I’m running IE6.


  3. I think that this is a really great project Matt. Thanks for all the efforts and time you are putting into this. I’m excited to see how WordPress.com develops over time.
