P2 brings blogging into realtime – whether alone or as a group, public or private. This short video takes you through the unique features of the P2 theme, available for your WordPress.com or self-hosted WordPress blog today

… and there was light !
Looks really fantastic Michael. Well done. Looking forward to finding a use for this one!
Wow, simply lovable!
That is insanely clever – basically allowing you to turn WordPress into something like Twitter (with better features).
You guys are awesome.
And a pseudo british narrator – brilliant!
Last time I checked I was the real thing. Do let me know where I should forward my credentials :)
reminds me of a wordpress based twitter! cool.
Poor Twitter, once the hype runs out it’s going to be lights out.
Very cool Michael ;)
it’s really cool! i love it! you can communicate with other people just like with an instant messenger, wait, i use icq for this..i think i will use the blog as a blog and not an instant messenger, sorry folks
So you don’t have a use for it. Don’t use it. A creative individual might find dozens of uses for it, so is there any particular reason to be a prick about it?
This sounds very easy and interesting, will try…
Awesome them and concept :)
Does that mean tittering has come WordPress?
Looks cool and just what the doc ordered.
Awesome! It’s a great idea to compete Twitter.
This would be cool as more of a plugin for a current blog; mix together micro posts and full length posts to your current blog… that would be rad.
Very cool. This would be great for quick collaboration among team members working on the same project.
Hm. It doesn’t really look like a blog anymore, just some sort of forum.
Blogs are evolving. :)
To a bunch of useless posts?
Useless: Just like Twitter ;) This would be a great internal communication tool, where Twitter-style IMs & logging them for collaboration would make more sense.
Though I notice on a single post page, the navigation to the next older posts actually states “Newer post” (and vice-versa). This should be switched around, no?
Sure, this was fixed in yesterday’s release.
WordPress/Facebook/Twitter have just had a child.
kinda interesting, but its just a twitter clone with a few more features…
agree with renderedchild, I’d like this in a side bar or mixed with a normal type blog.
agree, bright one!!
you wrote a whole new chapter for blogging!
It would be nice if P2 blogs could interact to create a Twitter-like community
It goes awesomely with WordPress Mu/BuddyPress, just create a feedback blog and within 5 minutes you are done
just when I thought I was understanding how to start a blog, it turns into twitter? disappointed…too in the moment – need the luxury to read “articles” and well-thought out paragraphs, not just percolations…
Reeeeeally want to try it! Specially the thought of starting to integrate the 1,000 windows we now use, I know it’s not there yet, but I am sure soon it will be. thanks!
This is a very very exciting function!
Kickass. Its like a forum, mixed with a non-account-based twitter type of thing. I would probably create a new page in my blog and use it there; i wouldn’t use this theme for my whole blog. But it looks fantastic.
is kinda cool!!
but.. isn’t it almost the same IRC achieved a decade before?
oh yes.. I forgot to mention youtube ..
but on IRC they used images, colors, emoticons, sounds, animations, connections and plenty of more.. almost a matrix application…
I think we are rediscovering the wheel :D
nevertheless… I think it is a good start for a new change ;)
w – o – w
Wow, awesome!!!!!!!! :)
wow.. it’s amazing!!!! :o
De lujo, ya faltaba esto en wordpress.
Thats great !!!
Another twitterstyle tool. Another thing to become addicted to. Looks good
Hello guy’s this owesome, great, this is what i was looking for ,congradulations..!!!!!!!!!!!!
Lemme get this straight: You produced a video to promote a game changing feature for WP blogs… and forgot to post a link to where we can get that feature?
Like all of our themes, P2 is available at the WordPress Free Themes Directory.
I’ve been looking for a simple Q&A forum without the hassles on WP. Looks like I’ve found it.
The comments have so many great ideas for its use – perhaps I’ll use it as a page for clients like a private membership site too.
Thanks for making P2 free.
Hey the theme totally rocks, great job everyone! I’m definitely gonna find some project to use this ;)
This is really great, though there’s no need for people to see it as a twitter competitor, there’s enough space online for personalised as well global, P2 opens the door for many other uses for wordpress, just like some of the other alternative use themes which have been coming out in the last year or 2.
I’ve even being toying with the idea of making a task management/light project management theme for WordPress.
How can I post a picture or a link?
interesting, when i rty and embed the video into my post (like shown in the video) – it just shows up as text.
That’s really more like my style!
Just so cool!
Really, great job.
This is the ever best wordpress i come to know and using
Amazing! Great job!
wow.. it’s amazing!!!!
brilliant! new era for wordpress users
How customisable is this theme?
There aren’t many dashboard options for this theme, but it’s open source, so you can do whatever you like with it.
I can understand and I agree with you because very useful updating.
Can somebody tell me? How can I put an Image? Not a Link, but an Image?
You can use the IMG tag in order to get images into your posts if you have the source URL, but if you want to upload an image to be part of the post, you’ll need to head to your admin section and use the regular post interface. Simply use the media tools like a non-P2 blog.
why to have to always go to the dashboard – even to post an image ?
Mmmm, the theme is good, but it’s so unfinished. If you only allow logged in users to post and they go to their profile… AAAH! it’s back to the old wordpress admin look! Holy smelly fish, this is ugly, I mean, why have you not themed the backend as well????
THIS is the feature that still makes twitter great and this woprdpress theme sucky. C’mon on guys finish the job, make a ‘total experience’ not a half cut job! I now have to use another plugin to theme the backend and login AAAHH …
p2 is pretty cool.
We hope to use p2 in our new web hosting website for better conversations between users. A great way to create a support forum!
Hey I love this one! I was trying to think of how to make it work in tandem with a partner site. One would be for promoting community engagement, and the other would be content support. With custom menus, you can bop back and forth (does P2 have custom menus yet?). What about the sites searching eachother? I put Meebo on my site, but I’d rather use P2.
P2 doesn’t have navigation menus, but you can add a custom menu to your sidebar using the custom menu widget and populate it with your content of choice. Searching both sites would require self-hosted blogs with some integration work.
its almost like going to the open window and speeking it all out into the air
Great theme, great idea. Congrats!
The P2 theme’s great. We really need to update ours! Cheers.
