    MD5.2 now available for download

    The version you see in the Blocks editor is not the same as what appears on the frontend of your site. Since we don't load MD's font icons in the admin we used icons from the WordPress dashicons library.

    Can You Really Outsource Your Blog Audience? Why You Need to Take Control of Your Online Platform

    Thanks for sharing your experiences with writing for Medium. I have talked to many bloggers over the years who use Medium either exclusively or to republish their blog posts, and both sides reasoning is to expose their content to viewers they never would have had otherwise. As we are all...

    SEO and this forum is detrimental to your blog?

    Linked posts in this forum are nofollow, which means Google does not consider your links here as a backlink.

    Best format for URLs for SEO?

    I'd be interested in the manual, was it published by Google? I think there are more important usability reasons not to use a URL structure like this before SEO concerns come in. "Pretty" URLs are easier to remember, share, and are just much nicer to look at. The many file extensions you see...

    Thank you for the kind message Joe, it is always great to see you pop up after all of these years! The question that comes to my mind is how can we get you started a blog to help keep you busy? It really is a great hobby and one I have been grateful to have more than ever during these times.

    Open graph and SEO metadata

    Hi Seth! We have opted to not handle SEO features like that as they are always subject to change and our attention is better spent on refining and expanding MD's fun core features. I have switched to the pro version of "The SEO Framework" as I know the developer is obsessive about performance...

    How to differentiate pages with the same name?

    The "problem" with the Page post type in this context is that its not hierarchical, meaning you can't categorize entries like Posts. That's where "custom post types" come in which let us structure our post type however we want. If I were going to use a free course plugin I'd look into this...

    Hey @rmontanez, I have manually approved your account - sorry for the trouble! Did you enter your username in the Forum users tab in your MD account area?

    How to protect Videos from being downloaded on WP pages?

    I never encourage this as there are easy workarounds to still get into your site's code. Plus, anybody with screen recording software can just sit and rip your video that way so you will be fighting a losing battle where only your honest users are hurt. Your membership software should actually...

    How to use the Stream to create new kinds of beloved blog content (Ideas)

    I couldn't agree more and I have some good tips for you in the meantime! I keep a bookmark folder in my browser with my most visited MD pages and I bookmarked the "Add New stream" page like so: You can do the same thing on a smartphone, except you want to add the "Add Stream" admin page to...

    As you login to your forum account today you may notice that you do not have full posting privileges you are used to. Don't worry, you haven't done anything wrong and restoring your posting access is as easy as going to to the newly redesigned MD account area to verify your forum username(s)...

    Not currently but that has been a requested enough feature that it will make it into one of the next Stream updates we have in store!

    Image gone all of a sudden

    Thanks for the report. :D I disabled the combine CSS option in the MD > Site Performance tab to work better with the WP Rocket plugin.

    Changing from a Pagebuilder Heavy Site

    Nice, it can definitely be a pain to reorganize your site into new tools but the rewards are so worth it! Once you've got a good workflow and know how to actually use your site without it exploding is how you are able to build consistent publishing habits, and a general love for having a blog...

    How to use the Stream to create new kinds of beloved blog content (Ideas)

    Not currently, but we are looking into a feature that allows you to embed stream posts from the blocks editor, as a widget, and a shortcode. Currently you can categorize stream posts and use stream category pages to filter specific posts. Share your ideas, adding new features to the Stream is a...
