This week we've implemented many new enhancements, let's dive right into them. As always we need your feedback so please leave a comment or find us on our Discord Server to share your thoughts.
Post Article Publishing Social Media Sharing
After spending so much time writing your article, adding photos and videos, why not share your posts with your social media followers? After you hit that publish button via one of our editors, we're going to redirect you now to your published post where you get prompted to share this hot off the press article with your followers. We provide easy to use social media buttons to do so.
New Article Sidebar
We're giving your profile now extra exposure, any of your article pages now sports a sidebar highlighting your profile (with links to your social media accounts. You can update those links via the dashboard and the profile tab on the left hand side).
We also added a mini map if you pinned your article and a list of your recent posts on that sidebar.
New Article Layouts
We also gave the article page a general facelift, beautifying how we displaying quotes, article dividers and image captions. Making it easy on the eye when consuming travel content.
Recommended Articles Feature Update
On the very same article page but towards the end you'll find an updated recommended articles feature. You'll find now 4 tiles with photos and an excerpt of articles related to the current article the user is viewing. When hovering over these tiles, they will pop out making it irresistible not to click on them.
Friendly Copyright Reminder
Please revise our minimum posting requirements. In general we encourage our users to use their own texts, images and videos but we don't mind if you help yourself with copyright free images, quotes from wikipedia and such, to underline or enhance your article. But please don't forget to link to your sources or your article might bet blacklisted or worse, your entire account.
