Features

This network is powered by WordPress. As you would expect the platform is flexible, secure, fast, powerful, modern and user friendly. The features listed here are just a few of the total available.

Publishing

The new editor, Gutenberg, helps make the entire authoring, editing and publishing experience a joy. You can enrich your content using a vast array of formatting options. You can create drafts, revert to a revision and schedule publication. The posts you write can be made public or private and you can protect them by requiring a password.

Commenting

Your readers can engage with your content by commenting on your posts. There is a set of tools available to help you moderate the discussion.

Feeds

Your readers can subscribe to your content using Really Simple Syndication. There is a feed available for blog posts, comments, authors, tags and categories.
