New Feature: Custom Page Titles

Wednesday, October 21st, 2009


By popular demand, we’ve added the ability to customize page titles in Writer’s Residence.

This allows you to rename the tabs shown on your website.

To edit page titles, log into Writer’s Residence and click on “Settings” it in the upper right-hand corner of the page. Then click on “Page titles” in the gray menu bar.

Here, you can rename the Page titles. For example, you can rename “Résumé / CV” to read “Résumé” or “CV”:


Click “Save” to save your changes and check out your portfolio to see how it looks.

We hope this new feature will allow you to better customize your portfolio. Any questions? Contact support – we’re happy to help!

I’ve just added this new theme. It’s great, clean, simple. Select it from the Themes tab.

Server upgrades & a new default theme

Sunday, January 25th, 2009

Hi, just a quick systems note.

We’ve upgraded our server to give it more RAM.

What will that mean for you?

It will mean we can handle more traffic as we grow and keep your websites running quickly.

Another quick note, we’ve added a new default theme.

New default theme

Of course there are lots of other themes to pick from and we’ll be adding more over time.



Nov. 8th: Improvements and Updates

Saturday, November 8th, 2008

We just released a set of improvements and updates to Writer’s Residence.

You can now reorder entries within your résumé/CV which makes it much better for adding new jobs, qualifications etc. Click on the Reorder link next to the section you’d like to change.

We’ve doubled the individual picture and attachment upload limit to 10mb from 5mb for larger scans of tear sheets and the like.

There are a bunch more fit and finish improvements like:

  • Title based links for writings samples. Rather than /samples/8 in the link you now have /samples/this-is-the-title-of-the-article. This will help with search engine optimization on your site.
  • Recent blog entries are listed in the dashboard to keep users up-to-date with the goings on at Writer’s Residence.
  • Your information is now pre-populated into the résumé/CV and contact information pages so less typing is required.
  • Clicking the sign in link on the home page will take you straight to your dashboard if you’re using the “Remember Me” sign in feature.

We really hope you find the improvements useful and, as ever, please let us know if there’s anything we can do for you.

Thank you,

– Monica and Tim
