While it has only been a short time since we released our last overhaul back in March 2010, this version is a true rewrite from the ground up. We had a lot of legacy code laying around and spread across several of the other sites in our network. All of the media and assets have been fully integrated into this new version, which we call v6.
A few new little things were added. You can now see a list of the top visited content on Pinwire within a 24 hour period; our ‘Trending Articles.”
We also created more robust YouTube channel, FaceBook Page, and Twitter integration. Better Article Notification and RSS subscription implementation is here for you to enjoy now as well! We have additional suggested search terms near the bottom of each article which is a rolling list of keywords that visitors have used which resulted in a hit to the page.
