Facebook, Google+ Login and A Couple Known Issues…

We’re happy to announce that Firedoglake readers now have the option of creating an account and logging in using their Facebook or Google+ identities! More info here.

We’re also working on a few known issues:

1. Some users might have broken “Write Post” and “My Diary” links in the toolbox on the right hand side of MyFDL. We’re working to fix that.

2. Some users have reported receiving system emails that random users are subscribing to their MyFDL blogs. This is totally benign (they can’t post for you or anything) and we’re fixing it

3. MyFDL bar styling might look a little strange. We’re working that out.

Thanks for your support! If you need us, you can find us at
