Primary Technology Ltd

Primary Technology Services and Sky Broadband

We were recently made aware of a problem where some Sky Broadband users couldn’t access any of our hosted web services such as PrimaryBlogger, PrimaryPad and PrimaryWall. This was due to an incompatible file on our servers which has now been updated, which should have fixed the issue.

We’d like to take this opportunity to thank all the users that reported the issue and remind you all that we take any problem seriously and act on them as quickly as we can.

If you discover anything that you think is wrong with any of our services or you’re still having issues accessing any of our services, please report it to us via our support website at http://support.primaryt.co.uk and we’ll do our best to help rectify the situation for you.

Cheers,

Ed

Ever wanted to export your Primarywall note contents to Wordle? Now you can! When on a wall click Share -> Go!

Ever wanted to know how many times a certain word has been used on a wall? Now when you search for a word you get a word count. This is better than other systems as you can type part of a word and use that as a work around for spelling mistakes 🙂

Today we’re happy to announce a 70% reduction in the price of PrimaryPad and a 50% reduction in the price of PrimaryWall. Both prices have reduced significantly as we have massively improved our efficiency and reduced our costs of providing these services. Enjoy!

Good news everyone! Our amazingly popular service PrimaryWall now has pro accounts available so you can extend functionality and provide a personalized experience! So what’s new?

Schools can now register their own subdomain for PrimaryWall for example http://stjohns.primarywall.com.

Change font

We have provided 16 beautiful fonts, when you change a font it instantly changes for everyone else too!

Password protect walls

By default pro accounts are only accessible by Wall owners, the owner can then set a password so pupils can access a specific wall.

Change background

Safe Search have provided us with 8 topical backgrounds that you can apply, there is an also a blank background so you can get more a focus on the notes. When you change the background it automatically updates on everyone else’s wall.

Easy wall embed

Want to host PrimaryWall in your school for your pupils/teachers and/or customize the look & feel? Good news! We open sourced the project so you can go ahead and download it now!

We open soured PrimaryWall as part of our ongoing commitment to Open source software and community engagement/control over technology. We will still be providing PrimaryWall.com as that is where we will be developing new features.

Some schools (It appears only those with internet caching through squid) are experiencing disconnect issues from PrimaryWall. We are currently investigating this problem to see if we can isolate the fault. If you are experiencing temporary disconnects or the heartbeat just stops then please get in touch! Thanks!

Mobile users such as Android handsets and iPads can now drag notes around on PrimaryWall!
