WordPress.com Open

We’ve decided to open up WordPress.com for signups without invites for a bit. The service has been scaling very well since we got the problems from the move worked out. With that done and WordPress 2.0 in its final stages, there is a lot more time to focus on some cool features and common requests for WP.com now. (The design there has been updated, but is still just a placeholder.)

[…] Ready for free powerful blogging service, other than Blogger? Now, meet WordPress.com without invitation. Note to Matt: I think that’s a quick move. After WP 2.0 beta 1, now this. Impressive. I’m waiting for the future plan of WordPress, which I believe would be fun. I’ll be watching 🙂 […]

I hope there won’t be any splogs like on Blogger. And yes, I’m also interesting to know what “some cool features and common requests for WP.com” are. Keep it coming, Matt.

[…] Now people, meet WordPress.com without invitation. You can sign up as free and as easy as signing up on Blogger. I know, there are still some features that needs to be implemented on WordPress.com. Template customization, importing system, and more. But believe me. At the rate Matt is working now, you will get it all soon. I’m glad that I’m witnessing this change first hand since quite the beginning. […]

[…] Ein kleiner Nachtrag zur WordPress-Story: Bei WordPress.com kann man ab heute auch ohne Einladung einen Blog anlegen. Möglicherweise nur für kurze Zeit. Zu viel sollte man aber nicht erwarten: Die Features sind immer noch sehr spartanisch gehalten. Aber vielleicht ändert sich das demnächst: Matt Mullenweg verspricht in seinem Blog, es gebe jetzt mehr Zeit “to focus on some cool features and common requests for WP.com”. abgelegt in Technik, Open Source, Internet Trackback URL | Kommentare als RSS-Futter del.icio.us-Stichwort | Links von anderen Blogs […]

@ Ben: Yes, WordPress 2.0 is exactly the same as what was before called WordPress 1.6. On release it will be named ‘2.0’. Previously, there was ‘1.0’, ‘1.2’, ‘1.5’ and now we’re jumping to ‘2.0’.

WordPress.com 開放申請

Matt 在他的 Blog 上說他們決定開放 WordPress.com 給所有人申請:WordPress.com Open。
目前 WordPress.com 雖然是用 WordPress-mu,但可以看出來目前跟的很緊,幾乎所有的 Beta code 都有上去。而且目前穩定性…

[…] You don’t need invitation for WordPress.com anymore. Before this, you will need to have members of WordPress.com to invite you. Although they are offering it free for registration now, it’s still better if you host your own WordPress for the sake of customization. Go register one if you don’t want to host your own WordPress. Anyhow, thanks to Leo for the invitation he gave me long ago before this. […]

[…] It’s now official. WordPress.com is now free from invites and anyone and I mean anyone can sign up for it. Of course, this comes to me as being odd because all the while I thought Matt’s grand plan is to give WordPress.com somewhat of a community feel to it by inviting your close friends and family to the wonderful (and insane) world of blogging. […]

[…] WordPress founder Matt Mullenweg just announced that they have officially opened the doors to WordPress.com, the new hosted version of the popular, open source blog tool WordPress. Previously WordPress.com was in private, invite-only mode, but now anyone can sign-up for a free hosted blog on WordPress.com. WordPress.com is running a modified version of WordPress 1.6, so there are a few more features and enhancements over the current, stand-alone 1.5 version. […]

[…] Ahora ya no necesitas alguna invitación para poder tener tu propio weblog en wordpress.com. La noticia fue dada hoy por Matt, el es la cabeza atras de todo el asunto de WordPress .org y .com. No nos queda otra que felicitarlo e invitar a aquellos que no han probado a WP o que se les hace dificil instalarlo (cosa que no es dificil), y poder tener un blog con mejores opciones que blogger. wordpress. weblogs // Used for showing and hiding user information in the comment form function ShowUtils() { document.getElementById(“authorinfo”).style.display = “”; document.getElementById(“showinfo”).style.display = “none”; document.getElementById(“hideinfo”).style.display = “”; } function HideUtils() { document.getElementById(“authorinfo”).style.display = “none”; document.getElementById(“showinfo”).style.display = “”; document.getElementById(“hideinfo”).style.display = “none”; } […]

[…] Matthew Mullenweg announced today that WordPress.com, the hosted (and free) (and extensible) version of WordPress is now available without an invite. I’ve created a test blog, and other than the fact that you cannot set additional ping servers (an advanced feature that only matters to some people), its an awesome product if you are looking for a free, hosted, and highly customizable blog.

[…]  WordPress s’envole Vous le savez sans doute déjà: WordPress.com – la solution WordPress hébergée – est désormais accessible librement, sans invitation. Telle a été la décision de Super-Matt. Les Blogger, MSN Spaces et autres TypePad n’ont qu’à bien se tenir. […]

[…] Matt se ha propuesto darle un fuerte empujón a WordPress. Ahora en abierto, ya no es necesaria una invitación para utilizar wordpress.com, el servicio gratuito que incluye hosting y este fantástico CMS preinstalado. En cuanto a la versión instalable, wordpress.org, tenemos una versión beta, la 2.0, recién salida del horno y que nosotros ya estamos probando. En un próximo post les contaré si funcionan los plugins que utilizamos en blogpocket. […]

[…] Nel giro di due giorni, è stato prima aperto al pubblico (non sono più necessari gli inviti) il servizio di WordPress.com, che consente di avere il proprio blog con WordPress gratis; ieri è stata rilasciata la versione 2.0 Beta 2 della popolare piattaforma (la 2.0 Beta 1 era stata rilasciata non molti giorni prima). Per avere un’idea delle novità dietro l’angolo, si può leggere la recensione su OSSblog.Technorati Tags: blog, WordPress […]

[…] Here’s something I should have mentioned in the talk I gave today (but completely forgot to): WordPress.com, the free, hosted, WordPress alternative to BlogSpot (that, as of Monday, is no longer invitee-only). I created a test blog on it yesterday; the process was simple, streamlined, and stress-free. Particularly because it hasn’t [yet] been sucked dry of blog title options (nowadays, I’ve started warning people that the most time-consuming part of the BlogSpot set-up process they will go through is the part where they have to find a title/URI that hasn’t already been snapped up). Go, wordpress.com! [tags for this post:blogs, cms, talks] Posted by amanda Filed in blogs, talk, teach […]
