Snap Live

After the overwhelming response to our last entry about Snap, we’ve decided to make it available for everyone.

It should also now work for comments (which is really cool) and your blogroll.

It’s now available for everyone, of course if you don’t want it on your blog you can uncheck the box in Presentation > Extras to deactivate it.

    I do not see any use on it and feel annoyed by Snap. I am very glad that obviously I can deactivate it. The other way would have been better: inform users that there is a new feature available and leave it to them to switch it on or not. But default should be switched off.

    Hey Chaps,

    In your above comment, you might wish to add the link

    http://wordpress.com/blog/2006/12/29/snap-to-it/

    so any newbies or technophobes (like moi) who more often type their little hearts out than supe up their blogs with wonderful gadgets, know what the heck this snappy thing is!
    (I didn’t)

    Pure good fortune that I’ve learnt most of your new stuff is fab and even if I don’t completely understand it, know it to be well worth persevering with until I do.

    Kind regards, as always,

    – Solo.

    Lovely, for the past few hours you have been inflicting these ridiculous popups on my readers without my knowledge or permission. Thank you so very much.

    I have yet to hear your reasons for making this frivolous little ‘feature’ opt-out rather than opt-in (certainly if somebody proposed it for wordpress.org you’d be the first to yell ‘plugin material’), and until I do I will have to assume that you’re getting some sort of kickback from Snap for putting it on everyone’s blogs by default.
