Magazine Layout

Posted by Eleftheria Batsou

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.


You can read more about it here.

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.


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 πŸ’—

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! πŸ™Œ


Moderators were unable to remove a post from the tags

Our tag moderators were unable to remove posts that were not relevant for the tag. We have fixed it now, and we are brewing more around making moderators more prominent in Hashnode. Watch out for this space for more updates ✨

Fix publish date bg for dark mode

The publish date wasn't visible in the dark mode, and we have fixed the bug.

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 🐞

Number of posts missing on sponsor page

Fixed the number of posts missing on the sponsor page bug

uniqueReactions property in GraphQL API

We can now find out the unique reactions for posts using the uniqueReactions property

Unicode char support while importing blog from Medium

We had some issues on importing posts from Medium, because of unicode char support. This has been resolved now.

Along with all of these, we also fixed few other minor bugs that have been smashed by our awesome development team!πŸ’ͺ
