Preview different website themes with own portfolio details and the ability to rollback changes
I'd like to view a specific theme and see how it looks with my portfolio details without deleting the current theme. Also, the ability to rollback changes made to the site will massively help. For example, I'd like to see how a picture or a theme looks on the site and if it doesn't look good, I can quickly change it with the rollback feature. Then I don't have to start over again with the design and arrangement.
Goodreads social media icon
Allow users to share their 'Goodreads' page (https://www.goodreads.com/) using a designated social media icon
Specific analytics for each article, instead of general metrics on site or page visits. We want to be able to see how many people read a particular piece
Customize weekly email to subscribers
It would be great to have some control over the weekly subscriber update email, e.g. the subject line/headline and text of the email, and the order in which articles are shown, when one has multiple new articles. This could be done through an editable Preview of the subscriber message. Eventually, the frequency and/or timing of subscriber updates would be great to control, too.
Show date when subscribers unsubscribe
Add a column to the subscriber list showing "Date Unsubscribed" if/when someone unsubscribes.
Change "From" field in email annoucements to subscribers
Currently announcements to subscribers of new articles are from "email@example.com." Although the "reply-to" field is from me and the "subject" field has my name in it, the "noreply" signals that it might be spam or spamlike. Anecdotally some recipients reflexively trash messages from "noreply," and I suspect some spam filters may do likewise. I suggest that "From" be from the portfolio creator, our name simply (as in "reply-to"), and the subject could perhaps be "New addition to my portfolio". Thanks for considering.
User directory additions
Can we add more descriptors to the user directory? In the first menu, I'd love to see options for creative writing, especially to specify fiction/poetry/essayist. In the "specialism" section, there's nothing specifically for literature (like writers who do book reviews, author interviews, etc.) There's culture and art, but not books. Also, there's no option for criticism/reviews.
Other options to sort articles
I'd love to be able to sort articles alphabetically, or have additional options.
Adding Pinterest to list of social media accounts
Many creatives find Pinterest to be a useful tool for marketing/networking. Would appreciate being able to add the linkable icon to my main page - thanks much!
Most of the images that get automatically uploaded with the articles end up in a diffrent framing, if they are not square, and as a result they may look quite strange. I’d love to have a small online editor that allowed me to at least reframe the images the way I want — and possibly add filters and small edits to make things look even greater!
Those of us who plan on archiving our entire career’s work need something to bulk/batch edit the tags, Publication, and blocks for multiple stories at once. Being forced to go in and edit each individual story is time consuming and exhausting. I love the service and hope you’ll consider adding this.
Galleries Expanded View Upgrade
I like the gallery presentation with thumbnails compared to the image slider. However the added functionality to hit previous/next (or a left/right arrow) when in the expanded view would be much more user-friendly than clicking off and onto another image each time. Thanks.
Unless I somehow missed out on a way to do this, I would really like a feature that allows us to give photo credit for images we upload.
Make Text Extract field editable or at least linkable
It would be very useful to be able to edit, especially add links to, the Text Extract field. Alternatively, develop a 4th way to create Articles that has an editable text field (without also creating a blog).
A couple of users have suggested or asked about adding sub-pages or a way to add pages as dropdowns in the portfolio navigation. Another related suggestion was to have multiple article blocks on a page automatically appear as a dropdown with the page 'Jumping' down to the block when clicked. We think these are good ideas and have begun investigating how they would work and how they can be implemented.
Suggested by a couple of users is the ability to change the Favicon that appears on your website. We currently do not have plans to add this but will re-assess this in the near future.
Portfolio PDF Export
We are working on adding a PDF export option which would be useful for when you need a way to share your portfolio offline. The initial option will have a fixed design and fixed format, but will be expanded to add more customisation options later.
