In the course of our current update, we finally integrated the feature, which many of our users have been waiting for: the blog module! Using a blog on your network makes it easier for the network founders to communicate with their peer group, to keep them up to date about what’s going on around their respective topic and to receive feedback via comments. Administrators can activate this module in the network settings and configure it individually.
To enable your own blog just click on “create blog” in the blog module and get started. Think of a fancy name for your blog and describe it in a few words to let your readers know what it’s all about. After that you can determine whether only your friends or all members are allowed to see your entries. If you like to play with or test the blog features first, you can (temporarily) switch off the visibility. In addition you can specify if incoming comments must be approved by you before going online.

Last night we updated mixxt to version 0.13.x. Apart from technical optimisations the new version called “violet” comes along with many new and exciting features.
From now on you can use mixxt as a blogging-tool as well. Network founders may activate and configure this feature and open new communication channels for their community. In our blogpost “New: Blogs within mixxt-networks” you’ll find more infos on this.
The news feed which was already integrated for each user in our last update is now available for each network separately. At a glance, members can now see what’s up in their respective network, which important dates are to come and whether new members joined or what they are up to. By filtering the entries, users may also decide which activities they’d like to be displayed.
