A complete revamp of the PRblogs.org software platform is essentially finished. I’m still looking around to find any possible quirks that may have arisen. Please feel free to comment with any problems you may encounter. The Flickr plugin is a little goofy right now, for instance. We’ll get it.
Also, we have our own PRblogs Forums coming up. Thanks, James. That will allow us to better communicate our FAQs and report any bugs. I’ll alert you when that comes on-line.
Frequent users have likely experienced sluggish service and downtime at various times over the past few days, especially. I apologize for the interruptions in service. We are growing and experiencing those unfortunate growing pains. I believe this upgrade solves those problems.
Also, we can’t forget that PRblogs.org is a free service. Still, we want to bring you the best service. Your patience is appreciated.
PRblogs.org is hosted, along with almost 65,000 other blogs, at edublogs.org. James has been our benefactor all this time. We are very lucky and grateful to have his assistance. I hope to have further news in the coming days about other positive movement for PRblogs.org, too.
Our blogging platform, WordPress Multi User (WPMU), is now upgraded to WPMU 1.0. This is the same platform being used by The New York Times, Yahoo!, Harvard and Le Monde magazine. Also, edublogs.org is the prime example of WPMU implementation highlighted by WordPress.com / Automattic as a WPMU blog hosting provider.
PRblogs.org, like edublogs.org, is free to all. No ads. James has recently launched Edublogs Premium, an even more robust and affordable enterprise option for edublogging. Check that out if you are interested in something for your school or enterprise, for example.
There are new tools for posting videos, audio, photos and more. Podcasting is now possible at PRblogs.org.
Here is one example of how video may be posted to your PRblogs.org site.
This is the Singapore version of the Dove Real Beauty Self-Esteem Fund video. I use it because it is also using the new divShare WordPress Plugin. It is the new plugin that enables PRblogs.org to accomplish complete podcasting (video and audio) capabilities.
DivShare is “a free file hosting service for everyone. No registration required!”
They claim – and I have no reason to doubt them – the following:
1. Upload a file
2. Get your download link
3. Spread the word!
* Upload unlimited files
* Serve unlimited downloads
* Files stay online forever!
* No pop-up ads or spam
* Incredibly fast, reliable servers
So, please go check out your blog – or get a new one. We welcome all public relations and marketing communications students, faculty and practitioners to our community. Check the RSS Feed for PRblogs.org community posts, too.
