In this sixth update for Lasso since it’s release, we bring in the ability to search all posts and pages within the posts modal. We also make bring page creation to the front, and much more!
This version of Lasso marks the 5th and biggest update since it’s initial release eight weeks ago. In this update we introduce the ability to set categories and tags, access all posts, create a post from anywhere, and set a featured image all without returning to the WordPress dashboard.
Lasso works by saving the HTML of your post or page. To be more technical, it saves the HTML of the container that has the Article CSS class you have applied in the settings panel within Lasso.
Sometimes extra items are saved into that HTML, like plugins that insert social sharing buttons. In a perfect world, nothing else lives within that post block except your post content. Ideally, those third party items are appended outside of that container.
However, there are some cases where this isn’t possible, so a couple updates back we introduced a feature to allow Lasso to “ignore” these items when it saves the content.
Since launching one month ago today, we’ve sold 25 copies totaling a hair over $4K. We think this will not only continue, but increase as we gain a better understanding of our users needs and pain points.
We really feel that the next few updates coming to Lasso will take things to a whole new level, and we’re committed to building a tool that negates having to return to admin during your writing workflow.
Today we released a pretty major update to Lasso; the result of several weeks of planning and development. While this update doesn’t bring any new features, you should notice an increase in the saving speed, as we’ve re-written the inside of Lasso to be more efficient.
We released Lasso into the world on my birthday, March 23rd 2015, after nearly six months in development. Since then we’ve sold 18 copies for a grand total of $2869.39 (the majority of those sold within the first week). This month we’ve sold one copy, and have refunded one copy, giving us a total of -$200. The initial launch rush, we foolishly thought would continue. That’s not the way launches typically work, and we knew that going into this, but I suppose lost sight of that reality.
Integrating Editus into any existing WordPress theme is easy. In fact the process takes less than five minutes, from start to finish.
In this two part series, we’ll cover how to get Editus integrated into Genesis, as well as how to get Genesis customized to work with Aesop Story Engine and it’s full width components. With Editus, Aesop Story Engine, and Genesis, you have the tools to build incredibly interactive articles without ever leaving the front-end. Let’s dive in!
We just released the first update for Lasso. It includes a number of bug fixes, and a new feature as we’ll outline below. In addition to covering what’s new, we’ll be talking about how our first week of sales have gone, and what’s coming up next.
Imagine how many times you go back and forth between the WordPress administration area and the post or page just to make sure it looks good. That quickly adds up. If you preview a post 20 times before publishing, and you blog three days a week, that’s 24 hours a year spent previewing and reviewing. Blog daily? Double that figure.
We can save you that time, and make the process incredibly fun by moving past the post editor completely, and instead editing content directly on the front-end. We can do this using a new, hyper-minimal editor that’s acts as a layer on top of your existing post or page content. No more wasting time previewing the post. Everything happens in real-time, right before your eyes.
