typespace.org Evolution

Saturday, August 7, 2004 at 5:16 am | Comments off

The TypeSpace website is continuing to evolve. I've laid out a bit of a roadmap of what needs to be done before TypeSpace will be ready. That list will likely evolve as more thing come to mind that need to be done, but it's somewhere to go to get a bit of a progress report, so to speak.

Also, I'm taking signups for beta testers. If you are interested in helping me in this regard, please sign up and you'll be added to the list of people to notify when the beta goes live. This has more to do with being notified when the beta actually does go live than "reserving" your spot on the beta testing list, as like I previously mentioned, unless the response is overwhelming (that's doubtful, with it being new software), I don't plan to limit the number of beta testers.

Finally, the site's design itself will likely evolve. It is currently very simple and was thrown together quickly, so I can concentrate on the software itself. I plan to eventually make it more aesthetically appealing.

Wow, some of those to-do's seem quite monumental, so I wish you the best of luck :) Is TypeSpace a blog-only system, is it inclined to work as a CMS to work on other parts of the site too (ala Textpattern)

Kool man, I already signed up for the Beta :) I can't wait to implement that over xblog lite :)

I am very thrilled about TypeSpace and have of course signed up for the beta. Will be interesting to see how it can compete with WordPress and MovableType.

Sorry, didn't mean to spam but that's one thing I encountered and was hoping for you had thought of it for a fix.

I truncated your first message, Matt. I already have that ability built into TypeSpace, but have chosen to disable it on this site, for a more laid back approach. On this site, I stay up-to-date enough with the comments that if someone does post an excessively long string of text, I can just manually edit the comment and truncate it.

Justin, it's more of a blog-only system right now. Not sure where the future will take us, probably depends on the popularity of the software.

Will there be RSS feeds included, Ryan?

Yes, TypeSpace generates a RSS feed for the main entries. It doesn't currently generate one for the comments, but perhaps in time it will.

Awesome, I would love to maybe have a mailing list so we could know the progress! *wink wink*

How about photoblog feature?

It looks like an interesting project, but we'll have to see how it turns out. Currently, WordPress seems to be the leader in the field, but if you can provide a better experience than that (and you'll have to) then more power to you.

I'd love to beta test for you, but not much time these days. Good luck, and I'll check back every so often.

For the benefit of those who are new to blogging software (like myself), could you explain how TypeSpace compares with the others? Thanks.
