LifeType supports multiple blogs and users, media management, generation of standard content, clean URLs and support for subdomains. Writing articles is comfortable with the included state of the art WYSIWYG editor. Adding pictures and sound files (for Podcasting) is just a matter of browse and click. The Dashboard provides you with all the information you need every time you log in. Recent articles, comments and trackback as well as brief statistics get you updated about your blog immediately.
LifeType is a blogging platform that has native support for adding multiple blogs and multiple users all into the one ‘back end’ panel. This multi-user/multi-blog concept is really nice and is just finally making its way to some of the larger blogging platforms. Since LifeType has been doing it basically since the platform was launched, however, they have already worked out any issues so it runs nice and smoothly. The platform is open source, like most blogging platforms and is coded with PHP using MySQL databases. It includes most of the features you’d expect including native RSS, mobile integration, permalinks and more. The one thing I’ve found about this system is that it doesn’t get updates nearly as often as most other options. As of this writing (October, 2015) the last release was back in 2013. This may be a cause for concern for some users. Others, of course, would argue that if something isn’t broken, there is no need to fix it. Which is correct is a decision left to each individual webmaster.
