Geeks With Blogs
Staff of Geeks Geekswithblogs.net Staff

Well after 3 years of .Text it is time to move on.  For the next version of Geekswithblogs.net we will be implementing a spinoff of .Text named SubText.  Our team is currently working on a smooth import process as well as adding the features of .Text that we added to make SubText a very smooth transition.  This move will change some of the blog skins by adding new ones and we hope to support some of the older ones as well. 

This move is still under development, but we see it completing within the next month.  Stay tuned here for more details on when we will deploy SubText.

On a side note, I want to thank the SubText guys for being such great help during our investigation process.  This team is well established and we plan to work with them to move the project forward.

Wohoo! That's some exciting new! Really looking forward to seeing how things go.

Thanks for letting us know Mr. Administrator.

It's hard to believe this place will be all changed and stuff within a month. Nice aggressive schedule.

I'm impressed and super excited to see the new look and new changes.

You just can't be a geek, if you're not a geek with a blog.

Just out of curiosity will SubText make it easier to customize skins?

This version is very similar to .Text but the next view should offer something better. Right now it isn't difficult, but you cant build your own for yourself and not offer it to everyone. I want to fix that.

That is probably the one thing I miss from Blogger. The ability to modify the template to my heart's content. I'm glad I'm not the only one that would like that feature. Thanks.

Glad to hear...We are moving in the direction of this being more customizable to you for your look and feel.

I don't mind the ad banner on geekswithblogs, but is there any chance that we can get a horizontal one as part of this rather than a vertical one? It consumes an awful lot of vertical real estate, pushing my links, archives, etc. pretty far down the page.

Thanks, and whatever the answer to the ad banner question, I look forward to the upgrade!

"This move is still under development, but we see it completing within the next month"

Any word on where we stand or how long it'll take to move to SubText? Just wondering and awaiting...

Still working on this. The developer has been prioritized to a client project, but we are pushing continued development.
