Make All of Your Website Content Editable In-line with Snaplive

Robin Good's insight:


Snaplive is an up and coming free, open-source CMS which allows any publisher to edit the contents of its web site directly on the page, without needing to log in to a backend system.


Snaplive works perfectly with WordPress and with the existing theme you are using and not only provides editing functions but it also allows you to add / create new content sections very easily.


"Virtually ANY existing website or theme can become a Snaplive-powered editable website in a matter of minutes.


All you need to do is add an HTML5 attribute to the div that will contain editable content."


My comment: I haven't tried Snaplive but the video is quite self-explanatory. While not the first system that attempts to provide in-line, on-the-page content editing and creation, the fact that that is free and open-source, that it can work with most any existing web sites and with any WordPress theme makes it very interesting for many a web publisher. If installing and configuring is as easy as it is promised, then this could be a godsend both for many website designers as well as for their clients. 



My compliments to Niccolò Broggi for designing such a cool, elegant and useful tool. 


Currently in private alpha.

Real-Time Blogging with WordPress: The P2 Theme

Real-Time Blogging with WordPress: The P2 Theme | Web Publishing Tools | Scoop.it

Robin Good: If you are looking for a way to inject new life in your Wordpress log, stimulate commenting, posting and interaction with your fans, you may want to look into Wordpress own P2 theme, which transforms your Wordpress into a Twitter-like, real-time blogging solution that it's more easy and immediate than Twitter itself. 


"P2 is a theme for WordPress that transforms a mild-mannered blog into a super-blog with features like inline comments on the homepage, a posting form right on the homepage, inline editing of posts and comments, real-time updates so new posts and comments come in without reloading, and much more." (Source: http://p2theme.com/)


Here's Matt Mullenweg story of how the P2 Theme came to be: "Almost everyone at Automattic is a blogger, but for the first couple of years of the company we didn’t blog much internally. Everything happened over IRC, Skype, and email.


...There was a disconnect we couldn’t reconcile: even though our internal blogs didn’t work out most of the company was active on Twitter every day. 


We found a solution in Prologue... but there was still a problem, Prologue was great for status updates but terribly awkward for conversation.


P2 solves all this by moving the conversation inline on the homepage.


Conversations can be fully threaded using 2.7′s new comment features."


See the P2 Theme: http://theme.wordpress.com/themes/p2/
