What Loudblog is:
Loudblog is a sleek and easy-to-use
Content Management System (CMS) for publishing media content on the
web. It automatically generates a skinnable website and an RSS-Feed for
Podcasting. Just upload your audio/video files, add some notes and
links, and you’re done!
What Loudblog is not:
Loudblog is not a fully featured weblog system like Textpattern or Movable Type,
although it does offer the basic weblog functionality. Use Loudblog if
you’re publishing media data on a regular base and do not need
sophisticated features other systems may provide much better.
Handy features, simple usage
makes Mediablogging and Podcasting easy. There are a variety of ways to
put your media content into the system. You can upload it via your
browser, use a free FTP client like filezilla or – get the files from
the web! (Before you do that you have to ensure you have permission to publish them in your site!)
that you can add lots of meta information e.g. a title, a short
message, or a list of hyperlinks related to your media posting. You can
even control the publishing time and put your postings into multiple
categories. But you don’t have to!
Loudblog concentrates on what is really useful. With Loudblog you can use Textile or Markdown
and create beautiful XHTML-code in no time at all. WYSIWYG-Editors are
crap! Did you ever understand Trackback/Pingback? It’s complicated
stuff and doesn’t fit into the Loudblog concept.
Pragmatism and Individualism
you a famous webdesigner? You’re not? No problem, simply select one of
the amazing Loudblog-templates. Oh, you ARE a famous webdesigner? Cool,
you can create your very own template using the XHTML-conform
Loudblog-tags. Web developers can write new plugins in PHP and generate
thrilling SQL-queries. Loudblog is fully customizable, so you are free
to modify it as you like. Even hacks are welcome. At your own risk, of
Publish a real Podcasting Feed
automatically creates a valid Podcasting-feed. Visitors can
listen/watch your mediablog posts using a podcast client or
‘podcatcher’ e.g. iPodder.
To do this they simply click on the ‘podcast- feed’ hyperlink and copy
and paste the page url into their chosen podcatcher. The podcatcher
then opens itunes, or another media player selected as the default
player, and automatically plays the programme! As the ‘podcatcher’
regularly checks for new content visitors are effectively subscribed to
your podcast channel! Wow …
Visitors can also use the podcast feed in an ordinary RSS-Reader minus the media content of the podcast of course.
