PowerPress 8.0 is now available on

Thank you for being here, beta tester! We’re eager to have you test our next release!

PowerPress 8.1 beta 3 released on November 25, 2019

New PowerPress Features

Version 8.1 includes a number of new features and updates. New features include:

  • New Get Started sequence which includes basic feed info settings, feed import, and artwork upload
  • First-time users of PowerPress must complete (or skip) the Get Started sequence and may revisit it at any time
  • Get Started sequence replaces Simple Mode, so Advanced Mode is now the only option
  • Websub now enabled by default

Initial landing page for new PowerPress users.

Basic feed settings within Get Started sequence.

Feed import within Get Started sequence.

Final page–after this, users are redirected to “normal” PowerPress (which was previously “Advanced Mode”).



This is beta software and should be treated as such. Don’t forget to backup before your start!
