Currently it is “Types” for Custom post type management.

Shayne Sanderson, Page.ly’s support hero. You have no idea the amount of heart that guy puts into his job everyday.

Do you have a “Stays in Vegas” story to tell?
I grew up here in Vegas.. and I left for ‘storied’ reason.

This one time, in Boston. Scott Basgaard got a Booner and Cory got in trouble for bringing a beer into a 3am pancake joint, on the ride home we all had to GTFO. I slipped and fell in on the Ice. It was wicked awesome.
