This is totally how I use the app... in the simulator 🤣✌️

I updated the homepage on a little. Tweaked the header to display a random underlined word and also an image of what embeds could look like. Not great at generating images in Sketch, so will tweak – probably should add more variety and less frogs 😅

Made a slow start on adding Pages and Uploads to the app. Pages is up first, so you can edit all your pages. Using the same icon as per website for now.

Similar flow as per Posts, thanks to Micropub. for web should be back as normal, and the official apps should also be serving images as usual. The CDN SSL cert ran out, so I disabled it for now, until Manton is back (who has AWS access) to renew it.

There wasn't any downtime, just things looked a bit more Web 1.0, without images and styles 😋✌️

Howdy folks. There is an SSL issue with the CDN we're using (I suspect it ran out and was not renewed). This affects the web app, and images that are served on the timeline (shouldn't affect hosted blogs).

Sublime Ads now includes a 42 day free trial (yes!) and also has all features enabled, so there is no need to add your details before unlocking other features during the trial.

I recognise the fact that you want to implement this in your apps or sites. Should be enough time.

Just testing it all wraps...

Been working on the posts screen for the MB app. Still some bigger work to do of course, but glad it's rendering in a way I want (sort of). Kinda fun to work on, so check out the develop branch commits so you can pull out your hair on how I do things.

Last week I changed the initial Dashboard that is shown in Sublime Ads... think it looks better with the tiles. Might explore this further and add Clients to it too.

Hello dear users of Gluon on iOS. I am happy to report that version 2023.1 is now released. There's a lot in this update, so head on over to the abbreviated release notes on the Gluon website.
