Development Update #8 on Magic Pages

I'm back with some fantastic news about the developments on Magic Pages! 🎉

But first, did you notice something different about this email? That's right, it's coming straight from Ghost within Magic Pages 😱

We've successfully completed the email implementation, and I couldn't be happier with the results.

A big shout-out to Yurii and his amazing development agency that helped make this happen – they've truly done a brilliant job. It took a few weeks of hard work and some unexpected complexities, but we made it through.

Thank you for your patience during this process! I am super excited for the possibilities this creates!

I also want to express my gratitude to everyone who shared their theme use cases last week. I've gathered all your input, and for the next 1-2 weeks, my primary focus will be on developing themes – woohoo 🙌

In other news, I recently collaborated with a client, Kuba (Content Kuba), on a custom website project. Kuba loved what Magic Pages could do and wanted to hop on board as a customer as well. Thanks to the recent server capacity upgrade, I was able to accommodate him.

His website is now the first site fully running on our platform that is not one of my test sites. Check it out here: https://contentkuba.com (keep in mind, it's not 100% done yet). A big thank you to Kuba, who was willing to test things and for helping me discover some crucial bugs!

If any of you would like to volunteer as a beta-beta tester as well, just let me know. Please note that Magic Pages exclusive themes aren't available yet, so you'd need to use a standard Ghost theme for now (Kuba's website design was a custom project).

On a more practical note, I've finished testing a backup strategy that I'm pretty happy with. Every day, a script on the server backs up each website's database and content, compresses it into an archive, and sends it to a separate server in a different data center.

This means your data is safe even in the unlikely event of a server meltdown. I'll be storing daily backups for seven days, weekly backups for a month, and monthly backups for a year. While it may not be the most thrilling update, it's essential for making Magic Pages a dependable partner for all of you. Let me know if you have any questions about this 😊

Thank you for your ongoing support, and as always, feel free to reach out if you have any thoughts or ideas.

Cheers,
Jannis
