It's been a while since I used Stream, I trialled it a long time ago, but eventually went for the Simple CMS provided by Stivasoft - I run a website for a local club, their committee need to have input to the site, and Simple CMS provided this for lots of contributors, and was customisable. However, it's very clunky, and not that easy to use, and the support is expensive. I've spoken to the committee and it's generally felt that the monthly payment to use Stream is worth it, however I don't like the way the posts look, i.e. with the date etc on the left. Is it possible to get rid of the date and time altogether, and just have it as text that our committee members can put on?

You can fully customize it in the css of the theme.:) You'll probably have to use a display:none for the date in the css.

It's easy to overlook something you're not looking for.

Copying and pasting from Word or Excel can give mixed results. I would try testing it by pasting it into an email a sending it to your stream.

If you really want to do things with nice looks like you would in Word etc. I would try PowerPost which gives you a lot more options for uploading to your stream. This is just a little software done by CC that gives you a lot more powerful editing features for items you want to put on your stream You can see it here:

I wouldn't suggest using straight pastes from Word or anything similar as it will most likely grab some hidden formatting characters and mess it up. Instead if you have things in Word or similar programs that you want to use, just copy the text to a plain text editor (MS Notepad or similar) that will strip any of those strange formatting characters out and then copy and paste it from there to PowerPost or S-Drive etc.

Have something to add? We’d love to hear it!
