New! Homepage links, restore post drafts, and improved stats page

We’ve recently added some new features to improve the publishing experience on Substack. 

Recommended links

First, you can now add links to your Substack homepage. Create as many sections as you’d like, and then add any number of links to each. You can use links as a blogroll, to direct readers to other places to find you on the web, or to highlight popular posts, among other uses. To add, edit, or delete links, go to Recommended Links on the Settings page in your publisher dashboard.

Restore post drafts

Next, we’ve added the ability to revert your draft to a previously saved version. As you write and edit your posts, we automatically save your drafts. Starting today, you can browse a post’s version history and restore your working draft to any previous save point. To get to your draft’s history page, click the “Draft History” link at the top of the post editor.

New stats page

Finally, we’ve updated the Stats page in your publisher dashboard. In addition to traffic sources, you can now see a table of email stats and, if you have paid subscriptions, a running list of unsubscribe notes from readers. 

We are excited to share these changes with you. As always, you can leave feedback and questions in the comments below.
