Hello Storytellers !
Right on time for Easter, we bring you the 9th release of storytlr, and we hope you'll like it as much as we do. New features include post by email, a much improved bookmarklet, a new 'dashboard' view, plus the usual tweaking and debugging. Details below and, as always, we count on you to help us test this out. Please ping us by mail or on twitter if you come accross any issue !
Post by email: In the Tools section, you'll find a new tab where you can configure your private inbox. Anything you send there will be posted on your stream. Attachements are supported, so it is now really easy to post a picture or some audio from your mobile phone !
Bookmarklet: It is finally possible to directly post video embeds, and these will be recognized as videos and correctly displayed in your video gallery ! You can now link to picture or mp3 a file hosted elsewhere.
Per page RSS feeds: The RSS feed associated with a page now correctly reflects the content of that page. So, the RSS of a picture gallery will contain only pictures. You can even build your own RSS feeds, for example filtering out status updates. We've also added proper support of audio enclosure, so your RSS can also serve as a Podcast !
Dashboard page: As the name implies, this page presents all your latest activities in a dashboard view. This is becoming the default 'Home' page for new users. Check the dashboard of eschnou to see what it looks like.
SEO improvements: Entries permalink are now prettier, we've removed duplicates as much as possible and added 'nofollow' where necessary. We've also added more meta information and more microformats. Finally, we now ping blogsearch at google whenever you post an item on your stream (not for imports). We are not SEO experts, so if you have ideas on what we must still improve, send us an email !
We wish you a great Easter weekend ! If you travel and make some great stories please let us know !
