Scripsio Update – 18 March, 2019

Greetings Scripsios,

We enjoy providing updates on how we’re improving the site. And, other than tech challenges here and there, usually we’re able to focus on tweaking to improve the site. While we have some nice improvements to share, we’ve faced some challenges recently.

This week we’ve seen a rash of attacks on user accounts. After quite a bit of chasing our tails, we think we have it figured out. Let us know if you get an email regarding failed login attempts unrelated to your activity.

Remember, you can post regular streaming content on Scripsio at any time. It’s simply a social site, complete with groups, chat and social streaming. You can also make blog entries, which can go to Steem as well. Come check it out. Learn more, including about our vote sharing, on Scripsio’s About page.

Post Scheduling

As you likely know, you can already schedule a blog entry to post at a later time. This is especially helpful if you plan on posting a series that you’ve already authored and want them to go out in regular intervals.

But now we can offer another scheduling perk. You can schedule any post to your own stream. There are limitations. For example, you can schedule a post to a group and those tagged will not be notified. We’ll try to fix that in the future, but for now the option is there for those who find it useful.

Expanded Markdown Usage

You can now use Markdown in your profiles. This will be a nice way to add some depth and a more dynamic look to your user profile.

Various Formatting Improvements

There are a lot of things that get worked on just to make the site look better and perform in ways that aren’t readily apparent, but improve user experience. Some of these recently included:

  • Header blends better with page
  • Font improvements
  • Post category more intuitive
  • Image layout

Other Fixes

There are a lot of other little fixes we’ve made along the way. Some you might notice. Others make us happy because we know it’s a passive way to improve the Scripsio experience. Let us know if you pick up on one of them. We’d be very interested to find out if anyone notices. 🙂

Speaking of “noticing”, if you haven’t noticed, LiberlandPress started posting from Scripsio recently. Come check them out!

Thanks for following. Thanks for using Scripsio. Check it out. It’s not just another social site. It’s a place where what you write is yours, so write what you write

Did SteemConnect just stop working?

Dear Steemians,

Since this Morning, I cannot connect to any website using the SteemConnect Identification.


I hope they will fix it soon as so many applications are linked to this system (minnowbooster, Steemfollower…)

Take care my dear Steemians and tell me if you have any updates or news concerning this matter.

Scripsio: Social Interaction & Blogs With Monetization Options

Scripsio will pursue as many non-invasive methods of monetization as we can. This means that you will probably see advertisements. Of course, you can place ads too. But our main efforts will be elsewhere.

Subsites

We have implemented a subsite option for you, in case you want to be able to brand your own site. There is a nominal fee of the equivalent of $5/month. If you desire some help with setup, you can contract with one of our staff on a freelance basis, or bring on a friend or other contractor. We’re open to proposals, but our focus is on Scripsio so we won’t be developing subsites. You will have support for anything we provide that isn’t working right. That doesn’t include any tools you add yourself.

Store

Scripsio intends to have a market application on the site before too long. This will provide a place where you can buy and sell goods (hard and digital) and services.

Blogs

Most of the site is pretty intuitive to use. You just post what you want, set up groups, join groups, build your list of followers/followees and engage however you want. This engagement is local and stored only on the Scripsio servers. Again, you can always delete it all with a few clicks, if you desire.

On the other hand, we have integrated the social features with your own Scripsio blogs. Everyone has one, so you can use that to post content anytime you want.

All you need to do to access it is to hover over “+ New” in the topbar and then click on “Post”. The editor opens up and you’re on your way. When you publish the entry, it will show up on your timeline and however you have set your preferences.

As a small bonus, all articles posted from Scripsio will be tweeted on Scripsio’s Twitter. If you decide to have your own blog, we can set it up to automatically post to your Twitter as well.

Steem

An exciting feature of these blogs is that they are integrated with the Steem blockchain. It’s not necessary to do so, but you are able to go into your dashboard and set it up.

In order to set it up, all you need to do is hover on “Scripsio” in the topbar, then click on “Dashboard”. From there, click on Profile in the left column.

You’ll see your details there, most of which are editable. Your password can be changed there as well. If you’re logged into multiple devices and want them logged out, there is an option for that. And just below that, about halfway down the page, there are options for inputting your Steem Username and Private Posting Key (for safety and security, please don’t use a different key).

Once you’ve done that, and saved, it, all your blog entries will publish to your Steem blockchain account as well, from where they can be seen on other UIs, offering multiple angles of engagement. The community also has integrated the comments and upvotes section, so you can enjoy a full experience from Scripsio. If, for some reason, you would rather publish an article without it going to Steem, you can do that as well. Simply uncheck the box in the SteemPress section in the right column of your editor.

No Steem Account Yet?

If this interests you and you don’t have a Steem account yet, there are a couple of options. The easiest and quickest is probably to go through Steem.Ninja (can use credit card) or AnonSteem (anonymous/cryptos only), where you can buy one and have it all set up very quickly. Another project to help you is Steem onboarding. While setting up an account through them may not be quite as convenient as Steem Ninja, they are in the process of setting up introductory tutorials to help you learn about blockchain and Steem in particular. We highly recommend their services, even if you don’t get your account from them.

We’re still trying to figure out if we’re grown up enough for beta. Come on over and see what you think. We’d love the feedback.
