  1. Good Morning sir,
    I am feel so happy to join paper.li

  2. Just a little question : I just customized my url, and… it just made disapear the wole previous contents. I thought it was a linking problem but when I try to create new contents, “it” just tells me : “Tomorrow maybe” 🙂
    Any clue ?…
    (very urgent)

  3. Tengo el plan de usar paperli, pero necesito control el acceso a sólo usuarios suscritos. No he logrado distinguir esta función, o cómo es posible hacerlo mediante otras aplicaciones.

  4. I would like to have advertising on my paper. I see I can add a banner or image to the “custom area” but I have no clue as to the proper size. The image comes out huge and the banner occupies only a fraction of the space. What is the best way to include advertisements in the paper?
