Templates, Templates, Templates.

By far the more requested topic of interest on the website (in comments and in the forums) has been for information regarding the release of pLog 1.0 Beta. Oscar has finished rounding up a very sleek schedule for beta testing which will begin within the next few days/weeks. There'll be notification on the website about how users will be able to contribute to the beta testing period.

That being said, people have been murmuring about templates, the templating system, and new features relating to templates for 1.0. Below, I've posted a somewhat in-depth review of the templating system in 1.0.

Posting in 1.0

As part of our continuing series on introducing users to the upcoming beta release of pLog 1.0, here's an extended look at how posting is handled in 1.0. The main function of any article-based website (read: blog) is in publishing text entries. As a result, the pLog team has placed quite a bit of effort into streamlining the drafting, previewing, and publishing of posts in this new version.


What's New in 1.0

With pLog approaching public beta for 1.0, there hasn't been much news about the new features implemented in the project. Unless you've signed onto the email list or have been in contact with Oscar and other developers, it's a pretty good guess that you, and most of your peers, have very little knowledge regarding what performance and visual improvements the 1.0 development cycle will provide. In fact, taking into consideration the latest releases from wordpress, mt, etc, one might expect a rather unexciting release filled with bugs and upgrading nightmares. Fortunately, pLog has always striven to be a step above the rest; believe me when I tell you that you're in for some incredible enhancements with 1.0.

Still don't believe me? Check it out.

Our Chinese speaking friends headed by Mark Wu have launched the official Chinese version of This new local site aims to become the central point when it comes to pLog in Asia, as well as to keep the Chinese speaking pLog community informed and organized.

They also have their own forums and their wiki. If interested in helping them out to create Chinese documentation, do not hesitate to contact them!

The site will not be just a translation of but will feature its own content so be sure not to miss it if you are one of our many Chinese speaking users ;-)
