Over the last few months we’ve slowly been taking the steps that we needed to take in order to bring a hosted solution of Aesop Story Engine to fruition. Today we’d like to give you a sneak peak into where we’re at with things.

But first, we really wanted to clean up the way both the WordPress administration area, and front-end are designed and presented. Writers and storytellers are a unique subset of users, and using a system designed for “general” use introduces some un-wanted friction.

For this subset of users, we don’t believe that 60% of what’s currently being shown is even necessary. So we sought out to restructure the Administration area in a way that we hope might better facilitate the story building workflow. Here’s what we came up with.

We hope to have a beta open in coming months, and we’re really excited for you to be a part of this with us. If you’re not already on the mailing list, sign up here to be notified.

  1. Nick, this is so cool to see this coming to fruition. It seems like only yesterday we were talking about this idea and BOOM, it’s here and ready to rock and roll. Congrats dude!

  2. I just have to say I love Aesop. I’ve been excited looking at the plugin what it does, etc. The hosted idea is looking pretty nice. Simple & clean for those who need to be purely focused on content.

  3. That looks sweet. When are you looking to role that out. Im not someone that can be trusted with beta testing Im too green. But the more simple you can make it the better. Love the Aesop themes / hate my low tech skills. I will get there. Cheers
