This is the release note for Medusa (Blogsy 4.0). If you’d like more details about one of these new features please look through the last week of blog posts for details or watch our how-to videos. We reshot all of our how-to videos so they explain all new and old features.
New Platforms -
- MetaWeblog – A generic setup so you can set up your blog even if you don’t see it as a blogging platform Blogsy supports. Almost all blogging platforms use the MetaWeblog API.
- Joomla 1.6, 1.7 and 2.5 – Prior to Medusa Blogsy only supported Joomla 1.5. Now it supports all the more recent versions of Joomla.
New Service -
- Instagram – now you can drag in and embed Instagram photos into your blog posts.
New for all blogging platforms -
