Magazine Layout

Magazine layout

We understand that one-size-fits-all solutions don't always work for everyone, which is why we're constantly working to innovate and iterate on our current offerings.

To that end, we have created a new layout option for all Hashnode-powered blogs: the magazine layout.

With the new magazine layout, your latest (or pinned) post gets extra special treatment on the front page of your blog, imbuing the section above the fold with asymmetrical flair.

Below the fold, you'll find a concise, compact grid that looks especially good when applied to blogs with sizable archives.

Table of Contents

Posted by Eleftheria Batsou

Introducing the Table of Contents

This has been asked a lot by our writers hence we decided to release it. Once you click on the checkbox in the publishing menu of your blog post a table of contents will automatically be generated and placed at the top of your blog based on the heading tag used in your article.

You can find the "Generate table of contents?" in the settings and you can enable it for old posts too!

Here is how it's going to look!

Medium Importer, Notification for RFA, bug fixes, and more

Posted by Anand Vaidyanathan

We are back with a new changelog for this week, and we have shipped a bunch of things that have been on our list. Brace yourselves, our developers are on a streak and you are going to start seeing more updates rolling out soon, and keep watching this space to see what we have shipped.

Enhancements

Notification to the requester for RFAs

A lot of you asked notifying the requester when someone attaches an article in response to the RFA. Now just sit back and relax once you have submitted your RFAs. We will let you know when there is an article against your RFA.

If you are wondering what RFA means? You definitely must give it a shot - https://hashnode.com/rfa. This is one of our most loved features 💗

Import to Drafts - Medium Importer

We just unleashed a powerful medium importer that helps your migration from medium to Hashnode. It's so smooth that you may end up calling your developer friends who are still on medium and will do a BIG favor for them 🍻

We will bring a similar buttery experience to other importers, soon! 🙌

Duplicate posts in the feed

We noticed sometimes there is duplicate posts on the feed, and we took a stab at this sneaky bug because it was so tricky that our dev had to cast a magic spell to reproduce and fix it. Yay! One more bug smashed 🐞
