Be able to choose to make story a draft, private, or live story. I use storify to compile research - not just for stories. It's incredible for creating a research doc on say... a new business idea - and I want to keep them private. And have the choice to invite partners to view the 'stories.'179 votes
Hello everyone! We have implemented private stories now. To see more, check out storify.com/business for more details. Thanks!
Stories are so much like blog posts and website content that similarly robust reporting and analytics capabilities would be helpful. Integrating with GA would be great--and much quicker than trying to build something comparable.3 votes
This feature is now live for users with Business accounts.
While items can be deleted from the story itself, they remain forever in the storypad. This is a problem because it makes it impossible to register changes in a given source URL. If I Storify my own blog post and later correct an error, I can't re-Storify the corrected post unless I give it a different URL -- the old info remains in the storypad cache.186 votes
We have now enabled this feature! If you go to the Storify source and “My Collection” tab, you will now see an X over the items you have saved, which you can click to delete them from your stored media.
When I first created the story I called it "geoloqi test". This set the URL to "geoloqi-test". When I changed the story title, the URL didn't update and I found no way of editing it.60 votes
We have now enabled this feature! You will see a Settings menu at the top of your published story, and the option to edit the URL there. Keep in mind that if you change the URL, the story embed codes on other sites will also need to be updated where stories are embedded or they won’t appear.
I expect that pressing the next page of content would be loaded. #fail1 vote
Vine is an app that is similar to Instagram, but instead of pictures being shared it's short videos. Really it would just be for graphic appeal3 votes
Hi! Storify stories actually work with Vine videos currently. You may have seen our announcement about this near the beginning of February:
To add a Vine to your story today:
• Search the Twitter area and drag tweets with Vines in them into your story.
• Use the direct URL of any vine (you’ll often see these in tweets) with the “URL Embed” option in the Storify editor.
Vine is still a very young service, and primarily geared towards mobile/iOS use. We don’t have plans to put a dedicated “Vine” area in our story editor now, but if the service sees wider adoption and Twitter (the owners of Vine) opens up its APIs more, this may change in the future.
Hope this helps!
We now have a draft mode, you can then decide when to publish your story so others can view it.
Of course it's kinda tricky when it comes to privacy, since most Facebook status updates are private. But if you let users choose to willingly make their updates publicly available, it shouldn't be a problem. It would be even nicer, to have the comments included as well, but this might really be a problem.19 votes
We now let you use elements from Facebook in stories — just install the Chrome plugin (from chrome.storify.com) or the bookmarklet that is at the bottom of every page at storify.com and you will then be able to pull updates from Facebook.
Would strongly like to see an export feature, so I can back my stories up or move them to another service if I choose.13 votes
Thanks for the suggestion! We now have an export options available for your published stories. Click on your story, then click the Export button near the top right.
If unable to use the Export option, the Embed button near it can provide SEO-friendly embed code for your blog or website.
Like Tumblr and Twitter, when you scroll down and hit the bottom of the page, instead of a 'Load More' link, just fetch more then. I have a long story and would like for users not to have to keep clicking 'Load More'.
After trying this out embedded in tumblr, I can see you probably did this so that it wouldn't interfere with their streams which the story becomes a part of. But that could be fixed by turning on the Load More link if it is embedded.15 votes
Thanks for your feedback and we totally agree with you — this is something we plan to implement.
Also you can do /html after any story to get an HTML version
Make Storify compatible with presentations (powerpoint) so we can present reports of the Social Media campaigns to clients easily.
Since clients want a report about the acitivities on their social media channels, it would be great if one could create a presentation from the storify stories in a jiffy.1 vote
Have you seen our slideshow feature that does this? Just put /slideshow after the story URL and you can have a slideshow. You can also embed this if you select the slideshow template from the embed link
Our website is wrapped in such a way that the width of the Storify embed code doesn't fit our content area. It would be great if we could have an easy way to set our own embed widths.16 votes
Our design is now more responsive and can run quite narrow, let us know what you think!
Once you've created an account via twitter or facebook the ability to create a username & password combination is lost - making it impossible to sign up for iftt.com.
The only way round this (if you want to use the same email and username as the account you created already) is to delete your storify account, and re-create it without using the twitter login.
Of course this will delete all of your stories. So I suggest storify allow users to create username/password (or just password) after creation of an account via twitter.3 votes
You can create a username and password for an account without having to delete your account and start over. Just click on the “forgot password” link and then you will be prompted to set a new password, which you can then use to login on the iPad app and storify.com
Would be great if you expanded the range of places where one can publish Storify Stories to ...12 votes
You can share your story on LinkedIn using the share link at the top of a published story, and also share any element in a story to LinkedIn among other sharing options
Unbelieavable that IE9 is not supported. On Windows 7, it is the most popular browser, how can you not support it??13 votes
IE9 is now supported to create stories, please give it a try!
It is difficult to manage my subscriptions because when I go to the subscriptions page, I see all of the stories from everyone I am subscribed to. I would like to be able to see WHO I am subscribed to, so I can more easily unsubscribe if needed.24 votes
We now have a better view of the list of who you subscribe to and who has subscribed to you, just click on the link on your profile page.
We now have a great iPad app to create stories, you can find it here: http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/storify/id488223180?mt=8
I was in the process of creating a story and I prematurely published it. My only option to hide it from public view is to lose all my work and delete it? I am very surprised no one else has pointed this out yet. In my opinion, that's a major lack of very important functionality.38 votes
You can now unpublish a story, just hold down “shift” in the editor and the Publish button will change to Unpublish
We now have commenting, liking and sharing for every individual element in the story or the entire story itself. You can see more about this here: http://storify.com/storify/comment-and-share-elements
