Self Service Obits

Today we release Phase 1 of Self Service Obits. This phase will allow site users to submit obits that can be moderated via the admin. You will be able to put the submission form behind the paywall with Paid Content URLs, effectively charging your users to submit obits as a new revenue stream.

Directories

We also release today, Directories. This allows you to import, user submits, or submit via the admin a list of "places" and have users "claim" them as a means to set up business directories. Places are user submittable and claimable (pending admin approval and moderation) and then users are able to update the information on their own submitted places. You can then implement the frontend templates to show the business directories however you wish.
