As the Beta testing continues to grow, KnyghtMare has been working hard to flesh out the features and support that will make Kinky Blogging fast, reliable, fun and easy to use for everyone who chooses us for their kinky and sex-related blogging needs.
One of the backbone features that makes Kinky-Blogging one of the fastest blog hosts is the new CDN (Content Delivery Network) support. This means that all of Kinky-Blogging files, images and other uploaded content is served to us from a third party service built specifically with content delivery in mind. This makes our blogs faster and our servers less bogged down with files. While end users may never notice this feature (and that’s a good thing), the fact that we’ll be able to handle higher visitor traffic loads because the files are being served from elsewhere will improve reader experience on your blog.
What does this mean for your blog?
When you upload images, you won’t notice a change in the behavior, but the URL provided to you will look something like this: http://c0029093.cdn1.cloudfiles.rackspacecloud.com/files/13/2010/11/kinky-blogging-beta.png. You will still be able to put images in posts the exact same way and manage your media library with the same tools that WordPress provides. The ONLY difference is the URL and where the file is stored.
Unlike WordPress.com and other WordPress blog hosts, we believe that you should have access to plugins that enhance your blog with more than a widget. This means we have worked a plugins area into your Dashboard. When you create a blog with Kinky-Blogging there are a number of plugins that are already enabled and ready to use. These are generally widget-only plugins and you can find them in the Widgets area of the Appearance Tool.
But that isn’t all of the plugins we have available to our free blogs! In the navigation you will find a Plugins option below your Dashboard List. Inside this tool are plugins we have made available for you to enable or not and add enhancements to your blog you may not have had with any other blog host.
And we are adding plugins all the time, so if you have a suggestion for a plugin you’ve seen on the WordPress.org repository, drop us a comment! We will consider and evaluate all suggested plugins. This doesn’t mean it will automatically be added, but it just might!
Watch this space for even more changes and improvements as we work to make Kinky Blogging the go-to place for all your writing needs. Coming soon we’ll debut the upgrades system and showcase the options to make your blog personal to your style with items like your own domain names, custom plugin packs, Kink-Ads removal and more file space.
