"Add-On Releases" under Blog... gone?1 user found helpful
I looked at the blog and previous approvals were there, but the addon I had just approved was not.
I concluded that making the post was the last action in the process and something had gone wrong at that point. At the time I put it down to being a transient as similar glitches often happen AM GMT because that is when the core team seem to prefer running big jobs and maintenance etc.
However, now the entire section of the blog is missing, I am wondering if the two issues are connected. I haven't needed to approve anything since then, so don't know if yesterdays glitch is still present.
Can someone remove the excess?

So.... moving the add-on notifications out of the Blog has effectively removed them from the Blog RSS feed which was a simple way for me to receive notifications of new add-ons. I will add the new add-on's RSS URL to my feeds but perhaps it would be wise to post a notice to the Blog to tell everyone that new add-ons have been moved so that others who have subscribed to the Blog RSS feed will not think that new add-on development has suddenly ceased.
Add On functionality is a major factor that can sway a developer from using one CMS over another.
With a portion of each add-on sale going to Portland Labs, it seems like it is in the best interest of concrete5, Portland Labs, and developers to make add-on release news easy to find.
