Thanks for the fantastic reception everyone has given WPVote. 1 week ‘old’ and things are going really well. The feedback last week was amazing, thanks to all who tweeted about it.
Since the launch there have been 109 users sign up and around 20 new articles submitted. There have also been a handful of new features added to the site, and I am sure there will be more in the future.
Some of the more interesting new features include:
- The first thing I did was add a “Recent Posts” page so that you can see the latest articles submitted, previously you just had the small widget in the sidebar to view the last 5 posts submitted
- There is a new “My Posts” option on the menu bar when you’re logged in, which takes you straight to your public profile page
- When you submit a new article you now get a link to the post you have submitted, which is much nicer than having to close the pop up and refresh the page, and then click the newly submitted post. Thanks to WPTavern for the tip.
- There is now an option to get an email notification sent to an email address every time there is a new post submitted.
There has also been a handful of people asking me when the site theme will be sold. I’ve considered this in the past, and am thinking it’s likely to happen. I need to spend some time tidying up the code and making sure everything is solid but expect a release later this year (no more specific than that I am afraid).
