Author Buzz Updates


I have been tuning up various parts of the site. Here is a list of the changes so far:

  • ActivityPub is active on the site and on all blogs (and forum topics)
  • More plugins are now optional – this is because many good plugins have an unfortunate habit of posting notices that – due to numbers – spam new blogs for the new admin
  • I’ve added more spam protection to slow the flow of spam signups
  • Removed unneeded plugins from the main site
  • Removed the ability to invite anyone to join a group as this was being widely abused (mostly by spammers)
  • Updated themes and plugins to their latest versions

If anything breaks that you notice please let me know.
