Series Sorting and Notification Upgrade

Posted by Edidiong Asikpo

Hey there! We're continually adding new features, squashing bugs, and improving Hashnode for you. Here's what we've done in the past week. πŸ‘‡πŸ½

Series Sorting

Previously, the newest article in a series was displayed at the bottom in the Series page while it was at the top in the Article's page. Confusing right?

With this new update, you can now sort your series to follow the same order on the Series page and Articles page.

Series Sorting

To do this, go to your Blog's Dashboard and click on the Series tab. Select your preferred sort order and click on Update Series.

Update to the Notification tab

We updated the Notifications on your feed to reflect a brief section of any comment made on your blog or any reply to your comment on an article. This update will enable you to see what the notification is about before clicking on it.

Thank you for using Hashnode. πŸ’›

RSS Importer, Ability to Disable Read Time & More

Posted by Edidiong Asikpo

We update Hashnode as often as possible to make it faster and easier for you to publish & read tech articles. Here are a couple of the enhancements we made this week:

RSS Importer

In addition to our Medium, Dev.to, and Bulk markdown importer, we just shipped an RSS importer to Hashnode.

This will be very useful for tech bloggers who intend to migrate their articles from their blogs or WordPress to Hashnode. πŸ˜€

Import from RSS

To use the new RSS Importer, go to your blog's dashboard, navigate to Import and click on RSS Importer. In the Import from RSS section, enter your RSS feed URL & the tag containing the post body into the input fields. Then, click on Import.

Ability to disable read time on articles

You asked for the ability to disable the read time on your articles, so we did just that!

If you disable the read time on your Hashnode blog, it will no longer be visible on either your blog's homepage and articles. To disable yours, go to your blog's dashboard and click on Appearance.

Read time

In the Appearance pane, disable your article's read time, and click on the Update button.

Follow button on Team Publications

Have you ever read an interesting article on any Team Publication on Hashnode and wished you could follow them to stay updated on their new articles?

If yes, we've granted your wish. You can now follow your favorite team publications with just one click! πŸ˜‰

Townhall by Hashnode

Here are some amazing team publications you should follow:

Note: The team's publications feature is currently available in beta. If you need access to it, you can send us a message on our Discord Server.

Series on Blog, Navbar Customization, & More

Posted by Edidiong Asikpo

This week, we shipped one of the most requested features from the community on Hashnode. πŸ‘‡πŸ½

You can now create series on your blog!

If you have been using Hashnode for a while, you may have noticed that Series could only be created on Hashnode's domain hashnode.com/series instead of your blog's domain edidiongasikpo.com/series. But not anymore! πŸ’ƒπŸ½πŸ•ΊπŸ½

Victoria Lo's Blog on Hashnode

You can now create series directly on your blog and migrate old series on Hashnode's domain to your domain. Here's how!

You also wanted to pin your Series on the navigation bar of your blog. Guess what? We shipped that too. πŸŽ‰

With this new update, you can now add Series, Pages, and external links to your blog's navigation bar.

Townhall's homepage

Visit your blog's dashboard, navigate to the navbar tab, customize it and let us know what you think.

Full content in RSS feed

Previously, the RSS feed for Hashnode blogs showed a brief section of articles. Now it shows the full content of the article.

UI/UX Improvements

If an article is published under a Series, the name of that series will be visible on the Hashnode feed. This will help readers to easily identify if an article is part of a series or not.

Hashnode Series

There is also a new trending bloggers widget on the sidebar of the homepage.
