The best piece of news this week, in my opinion, is that News Mixer will be working on WordPress integration. That’s right, the sweet piece of commenting goodness originally launched as NewsMixer.us and recently announced to be integrated with the Populous Project will be coming to the world’s most popular blogging platform and overall Swiss Army Knife.

In the forum this week, Greg asked about strategies for making your print edition an online feature. The idea came out of a Twitter conversation between Greg and Dane Beavers at The Oklahoma Daily, and the specific questions were:
- After you complete a print edition, do you put a PDF or other such version of it online? Why or not?
- If you do, is it useful? What kind of traffic does it get?
- If you do, do you upload as a PDF or using a third-party service such as Issuu or Scribd?
- If you do, do you tell advertisers that their ads are viewable online?
