More News

A few months ago we added News Departments to the WordPress.com front page and I promised there would be “a new place where you can browse fresh, hot content in any department you like”. Well, it’s here.

Actually we deployed the new “More »” link quietly last week just to see how many visitors would notice and click: hundreds per day. That means a lot of people are missing out on all the fun!

The News Page lets you browse recently popular posts in a bunch of categories and we will be finding more ways to help you browse as we think of them.

  5. Grace

    Yay. Thanks. That’s “More” fun.

  6. Gustavo

    Cool

  7. Nobodyknows

    Man, this is awesome. Thanks for the update and upgrade.

    (But I’d kill for an Education department.)

    Good, outstanding. Now what you need to do is add a page where people can see all the different categories, or at least a randomly rotating selection. I’ve already noticed that the News page has ensured that all of the Top Posts are from those few limited categories. This isn’t good for the global conversation.

    thanks alot!

    : )

    If you want to keep it quiet, you need to be less obvious! I saw the “more” link very early on. Wondered when you would announce it.

    I think some of us are still struggling with the category/tag situation. Many of my links were tag related as in “see all (tag) posts” . Then the tags were renamed categories and many of my links failed. Redo. Now they work either way, but still I have lots of categories that the converter won’t see so they have to be manually converted.

    Just the same, the tag/category change and the “more>>” link will help broaden our reach. You guys do good work.

    Thanks
    Oldtimer

    this is a great add by you guys…

    Awesome !

  12. devo

    Fantastic improvement. Love it.

  13. cronies

    I didn’t notice it, ty for letting us know ’bout this.

  14. parafonos

    Well that is GOOD NEWS Andy !!!

  15. zylla3

    I’ve finally got he courage to start my blog today, and “More>>” is one of the many overwhelming things I discovered that did not really overwhelm me. Sigh!!! Thanks for all the amazing things I’m slowwwly comprehending.

  16. Thunk Different.

    well, i’ll be!

  17. museditions

    Glad you posted this. That’s a teeny little “more” link, and I did not notice. I seriously love the News Page!! I can view posts on “Science” and “Mysticism”, or “Music” and “Spirituality”, for instance, all in one place. Thank you very much.

  18. devildog6771

    Great idea! Thank you.

  19. timethief

    I like the expansion and I found the link a few days ago. I would like to suggest that “Personal Development” is a department that ought to be considered for addition. Thanks for all your work. :)

  20. PV

    Exactly what I was looking for & found yesterday. A constantly updating news feature without having to refresh the page would be a great add on.

  21. alicia5

    Thanks wordpress.com!!!!!!!!

  22. The Guru

    Interesting, I’ll have to see if I can find this here new feature.

  23. Viral Trivedi

    Have to thank you guys for any and all efforts you make; regardless of the individualistic usability. So, Thanks!

  24. Austin

    I didn’t even notice it was there. When going to the main page I thought, now why would only one blog entry make the news page per category? One for health, one for politics, etc. I guess not seeing the “more” link kept me in the dark about more news. Oops!!

  25. tahir

    Cool feature.

  26. asaverle

    Not bad at all. Didn’t notice it before.

  27. asaverle

    Perhaps though it should be divided by language like botd so we foreign bloggers dont feel rejected. Is there any future plans about that?

    Sorry for the double comment.

  28. Maninas

    Excellent! Thank you!

  29. legoless

    Cool idea!

  32. Daniel Trezub

  33. trollboy

  34. Diego Urioste

    Great!

  35. Jane

    Thanks WordPress. There doesn’t seem to be a “news” section for us “wildlife” freaks… Coming soon???

  36. Sakib Al Mahmud

    Thansk A Lot Dear Andy

  37. Vish

    Ah crumbs. My categories are random. Mind you, it would be cool to browse everyone else… Cheers guys!

  38. Paul

    Very cool! I’ll definitely be clicking on “more” a bunch!

  39. cyclepromo

    Thanks for the new feature. Thats very social of you, if you know what i mean.

  40. ena

    What about Nature and Gardening, The Environment. No news for them???
    Hope you will add these very important categories.

  41. necrophagus

    awesome :D

  42. goldcoaster

    Thanks but is there any way that users can customise the news page – eg. i don’t really care about US based sports and that seems to be mostly in the sports section – nice if we could locaise things down to country level.

  43. Kunal

    now this is brilliant :)

  44. kidtales

    Cool

  45. Peter Cruickshank

    Cool feature! Now, if there was only a way to find the stories written by UK or European bloggers in amongst all the USA stuff…

  46. slimball2007

    Great Idea.
    I could really use something like that! :P
    Thanks!
