There’s been a lot going on in what is becoming the WP-Cumulus ‘universe’. For one thing, the original WordPress plugin has been downloaded well over 60.000 times now. The increase in popularity has pretty much made my inbox explode. I try my very best to at least reply to everyone but it’s getting to the point where I won’t be able to. So please be patient if it takes a while and excuse me if your message slips through.
If (after having read the FAQ) you really need support, try the support forum at wordpress.org and tag your post ‘wp-cumulus‘. I’m a subscribed reader of the RSS feed for that tag, and chances are someone else will come up with a solution before I do. Another great thing is that others can benefit from solutions posted there.
I upgraded only this week, so I guess this is old news. I can now definitely vouch for WP-Cumulus in 2.7. It works. I could see no season why it wouldn’t, but now I’m sure :). I love the new dashboard by the way, but the jury is still out on the look. I’m still using an older version of MU for a client and that did look a whole lot less cluttered and a bit more colorful. Although nowhere near as slick.
I’ve been contemplating moving the non-flash tag cloud to “noscript” tags, but I’m not quite sure this will work out well. Currently, the regular HTML tag could is placed in an invisible div. This already looks like keyword stuffing, and using noscript might make that even more so. I wouldn’t want thousands of people to get Google penalties because of me. Any advice is welcome.
Cumulus is also still getting ported to other CMSs, many of which I had no idea existed :). I try to mention every project here, but I’ve been way behind on those. So here goes:
- Colin Seymour has created a Habari version at http://www.lildude.co.uk/projects/hb-cumulus/.
- Andreas Scherer uses DasBlog.
I realized a while ago that I’ve never actually mentioned this. Thanks to everyone who uses this plugin, has contributed ideas and suggestions, ported it to other platforms, donated, or blogged about it. I might not be able to handle the sheer volume at times, but I really do love all the response.
