It's even worse than it appears..
  • Question: What's between a tiny little text box and a full-blown content management system?#
  • Answer: A full-featured text editor with a social media feel to it without the limits of twitter-like systems. #
  • That's what textcasting is for, to identity the essential features. This editor supports them. #
  • 100% built on WordPress. Why reinvent all the good stuff that's been debugged and scaled and has all that support in the world. As I like to say, one way of doing something is better than two, no matter how much better the second way is. #
  • PS: A seven-minute podcast that explains. 😄 #
  • PPS: And don't forget about the blogroll. It's part of the puzzle too.#
  • PPPS: The house was really cold when I did this recording so I walked around to try to stay warm. By the end I was pretty close to shivering out loud. I turned the heat up after I finished. #
  • The question we intend to answer. #

You know those obnoxious sites that pop up dialogs when they think you're about to leave, asking you to subscribe to their email newsletter? Well that won't do for Scripting News readers who are a discerning lot, very loyal, but that wouldn't last long if I did rude stuff like that. So here I am at the bottom of the page quietly encouraging you to sign up for the nightly email. It's got everything from the previous day on Scripting, plus the contents of the linkblog and who knows what else we'll get in there. People really love it. I wish I had done it sooner. And every email has an unsub link so if you want to get out, you can, easily -- no questions asked, and no follow-ups. Go ahead and do it, you won't be sorry! :-)
