What's Your Idea About Next Hashnode Devblog Feature?

My idea about next Hashnode Devblog feature:

β€’ Add menu and category, not only tagging form. So, when visitors click that button, they will redirect to specific category by the user, not general tagging Hashnode page.

β€’ Reduce too many javascript requests from page loading, because there are about 10 scripts that load on forntend.

β€’ Avoid external script (Google Tag Manager, Google Analytics, Facebook Pixel, etc) from page loading if user doesn't fill its form.

β€’ Make slug url pretty and clean with domain.tld/this-is-my-title format rather than domain.tld/this-is-my-title-cxfzqwyblablabla ugly format.

β€’ User can choose specific fonts for title and body. Use only one font is also good option to avoid distraction and too many http requests.

β€’ If website use custom domain, then "post must you read" section is must from the same domain, not from another writer.

β€’ Dark mode toggle button for frontend Devblog, not only for admin dashboard.

β€’ Add option to choose about pagination, not only default infinity load.

β€’ Additional CSS form to customize some forntend elements.

More idea?

Reactions(πŸ’“πŸ‘πŸ™Œ etc) on blog is most encouraging...it would be nicer to get a view count also..like page views for a blog.. Vendor analytics can be done but getting it on the blog also would be nicer for me.

That's good feature. So, user can choose to turn it on / off as they need.

I'd like a way to inject analytics different than Google, i usually go with a self hosted Fathom (for GDPR compliance), but there are plenty options out there than can do this.

For the rest, i totally like your ideas!

Another analytics can be added to widgets section. But Google Analytics code will still loaded, even if you don't use it.
