September & October 2022
Here are the latest product feature enhancements from our Product Team. Highlights include all-new email notification designs, new social sharing options for comments, and an improved registration user experience.
When an ad script starts loading, it triggers an
ads-script-startedevent. Publishers can capture these events to use for analytics or to initiate custom actions.
Users can now share comments to Pinterest.
We updated our commenting text editor infrastructure in Conversation and LiveBlog to improve stability and performance.
Translations to all 21 languages are now supported.
An updated design improves clarity to increase engagement, with the publisher’s logo and full comment context.
The Registration modal now features the publisher’s logo.
Call-to-action wording now changes according to the action the user performs, to clarify the benefit from signing up. This will help increase registration completion rates.
The Reset Password link now uses the canonical article URL to return users to the article reliably.
The sticky Ad Unit container width has been corrected, and sticky ads no longer cover sticky site content.
Admins can now set one of their own comments as a featured comment.
Journalists are now able to report comments.
YouTube video embedding now shows a preview.
In SafeFrame implementations, users can now use the Sort by dropdown menu to order comments.
Embedded links within the comments are now clickable.
Quotes now look the same when composing a new comment and after posting it.
Message options can now be viewed in dark mode by staff members.
The Spanish translation for the Sign up link has been corrected to “Registrarse.”
The Portuguese translation for the Copy Link share caption has been corrected to “Copie o link.”
The text editor has been improved by fixing bugs related to text icon alignment and size, and text editing and writing.
Notification settings changes are now saved as expected.
When a user logs in again with email, the user's email is populated in the Email text field and the Password field is in focus.
(Android/iOS) User avatars display fully when a user logs in again to the same account.
The User Profile now opens correctly from the mini-profile hover CTA.
