Improved Activities, Side Interaction Buttons, More Embedded Content & More - xLog Weekly Summary #17

Fresh out the oven 🔥#

Improved Activities#

Add comment display#


Comments are a crucial aspect of posts, and for bloggers, engaging with comments is an effective way to enhance the post's topic. To encourage active participation and expression of opinions, we have incorporated comment display on our activities page.

Simplify multiple posts from the same blogger#


When new users start using xLog, it is a common practice to import old posts from their previous blogs. However, having too many of these old posts from the same blogger in the activity feed can be inconvenient for users who want to view updates. To address this issue, we have implemented measures to reduce the display of non-first posts by the same blogger. These measures include reducing font size and number of lines displayed, as well as not showing cover images.

Use separate URLs for different types of activities#




We now use different URLs for the latest, hottest, and followed activity types to facilitate users' separate access instead of manually switching.

Side Interaction Buttons#


Likes, collections, tips, and comments are highly motivating for bloggers. To enhance reader interaction, we have incorporated interactive buttons on the left-hand side of posts that will remain visible while scrolling through the page. We believe this feature will boost reader engagement.

More Embedded Content Support#


After supporting Tweet embedding last week, this week we have added support for multiple embedded content such as YouTube, GitHub, Bilibili, CodeSandbox and NetEaseMusic. Just like with Tweets, all you need to do is put the link in as a separate line.

You can view more examples here: https://xlog.xlog.app/xfm#embedding

New Editor Buttons#


We've included new quick buttons for centering, right-aligning, and inserting mathematical formulas. Moreover, we've improved the image upload button to allow uploading audio and video files. Furthermore, clicking on the help button will provide you with more explanations and examples.

Home Tag Page#

On the activities page, you can now click on a tag within a post to view all other posts that use the same tag.

Improved Blockchain Experience#

We have replaced wagmi with a faster and lighter alternative viem in our Crossbell SDK. As a result, you can now experience significantly faster blockchain transactions.
