Interesting interview between Anil Dash and Matt Mullenweg. WordPress is going to make simpler WordPress. Doesn't that already exist as TypePad? Anywho -fascinating post by Anil Dash - http://dashes.com/anil/2012/06/the-fi...

Nice. I would like TypePad to offer some things that Wordpress does though, bulk uploading being one.

Bulk uploading of what? Pictures? Typepad does this in the photo album. TypePad is a very different product than WordPress, for very different type of users. In my mind, it's for small business,not for bloggers or publishers. Small businesses who have never "blogged".

But that's just me.

I only upload images via the File Manager so I know exactly where they are going and how the URL looks. Alas I can only upload images here one at a time. I'd like bulk upload in the File Manager.

Hi Anke!

This is actually something we're working on, so it's good to know you're interested! Keep bringing those ideas - it's how we improve Typepad daily!

Cheers,
Melanie

Just curious, under what circumstance would you need a file manager where you care about the resulting URL and you need to upload a ton of content. No need to be too specific, just curious as to your use case and whether another approach outside typepad can be used and then integrated with Typepad. Say dropbox or box.net?

Hi Alex, nice to see you in here today! :D

A lot of people who make customizations to their blogs, or want to have a specific static page with a lot of photos or buttons that point to a specific URL would benefit from having a bulk uploader.

For me personally, being able to drop 10 graphics at a time into the File Manager when I'm customizing a template for myself, or designing a Typepadder's blog, would be great, since I want to keep those files inside my Typepad account. We don't have an ETA on it just yet, but hopefully it will be released in the not so distant future.

By the way, we really appreciate the praise for Anil! We think he's pretty great, too.

Have a great weekend!

Melanie
