Newspack for local news

  • Google is funding a hosted platform for local news called Newspack. The CMS is made by WordPress. The platform is currently in testing phase and commercial rollout is expected by 2020. Until then it will be available for free for selected local news publishers.

  • Come on, its the off-topic zone and maybe someone is interested so why not share the information?

    Is there anything really interesting on this site or is it a simple news aggregator ?

  • It's just really weird that someone would come here to promote a competitor. Maybe the people at WoltLab don't care; I find it to be very disrespectful and I wouldn't appreciate it.

  • Well, i don't really see WordPress as a competition, woltlabs CMS is really only of interest if you use other commercial apps to, as standalone it hasn't even close the features compared to WordPress ;)

    And it isn't something woltlab needs to be ashamed of, it delivers a solid solution as a all from one hand software suite, but its ability as a CMS and a News Blog are limited.

    Well, wordpress is not a competitor to WBB. It's not a forum software.


    I've seen XenForo discussed here before, which you would say is a competitor.

  • Well, wordpress is not a competitor to WBB. It's not a forum software.

    WP is a CMS and so is WCS.


    Show me a thread here that someone started just to promote XenForo. If one exists, it's low class.

  • I said spammy meaning he was sent a Private Message about XenForo. I wasn't talking about the thread being spammy.

    It's the same thing if it was sent in a private message or a thread was created for it, it's spam.

  • Xenforo sucks too. Believe me, if I liked any other forum software I wouldn't be here posting. I'd be on another forum software official forum.

  • I have 5 xenforo licenses and I only use one actively. As soon as my Spanish phrases are done being translated I will have 0 active Xenforo Licenses.


    I do not like Wordpress. I think every site uses them now. What happened to building stuff to be different, everything is the same now....

  • Newspack is not a CMS at all. You cannot download it or buy to install on your server. It is a pre-hosted platform for leading news websites. WordPress made the code and Google is funding it.
