    Active memberships will now receive an email 7 days before an upcoming payment and a receipt email after a payment has been made. Upcoming emails and a double check on membership statuses are now done every morning at 8AM ET. Memberships that are found to be in an official unpaid state will be expired and an update payment method email will be sent.

    Two Factor Authentication is now supported on any Fans.fm account. This is a TOTP RFC 6238 Two Factor implementation that is commonly supported by Google Authenticator, 1Password and others. When setting up a two factor device you will be presented a QR code to scan in your app of choice and a valid generated is required to officially enable two factor on your account. After activation a series of 10 recovery codes will be presented that should be printed or saved immediately (because this will be only shown once) so you can still log into Fans.fm in the event your two factor device is misconfigured at some point or inaccessible.

    Notifications are now sent to page managers when fan memberships are created or cancelled.

    Complimentary memberships have been improved for both the page manager created them and the end user accepting them.

    The gift membership experience has been improved for the recipient accepting the gift and creating an account in one step. The recipient can also now clearly see the duration of the gift and when it expires.

    Private fan membership only posts are now generally accessible to anyone but will only show content to those with access. Visitors without access will see a message that the post is locked and to gain access you have to become a fan and create a membership.

    Welcome to the new Fans.fm! I released a major update about a month ago and will now podcast as new versions of Fans.fm are released.

    This release addressed an issue with a CDN dependency on Cloudflare which crashed earlier today. I quickly removed the javascript/css dependency and uploaded the files in question to the Fans.fm CDN.

    In this episode I discuss the upcoming release 2019.1 which will be all about emails! More notification emails for podcast managers and emails to fans of podcasts when new membership only episodes are released.
