Besides our previously mentioned issue following blogs from Mastodon, we had some additional configuration-related issues with federation on Write.as. That’s now fixed, so now you should be able to follow your blog from the fediverse again!
We’ve started putting all of our current help resources into one place: our new Help page! Check it out, whether you’re just getting started or looking to do more advanced things with Write.as.

We just released some improvements to Post Signatures!
* Signatures are automatically hidden on pinned posts
* You can manually hide signatures by using a new shortcode: <!--nosig-->
Also, Post Signatures are now included in our Write.as Team plan at no additional cost (along with eBook Exports).
#WriteFreely for iOS v1.0.4 is out now! This update fixes just a few tiny bugs.
As always, if you enjoy the app, we'd love to hear your thoughts in an App Store review!
In case you had trouble logging in or signing up on our forum (https://discuss.write.as) with your Write.as account before, those troubles should be gone! We just fixed the login issue on our end.
