A rundown of the latest product improvements to help Substack writers succeed.
Please add categories and tags so readers can reference past articles rather than spending days scrolling. For the love of God, please. Or even a key word search within Substack. As a writer, I shouldn't have to go to Google to look up references to my own articles. Thank you.
Nice updates. How about the ability to underline words as well as strikethroughs?
Love the new features. Word count display is something I’d like. Or more simply a duration calculator default. Thanks!!
Love the new flexible paywall insert. Hope it grabs me some more subscribers. I'm still the only writer I know of pumping out compelling, diverse, original fiction daily.
Now that Instagram is going to allow link stickers for all users, can you please include it in the "Share" button?
A substack profile is like a bookcase, makes me think of twitter lists
Great stuff Substack. Would love a tool that helps me figure out when's the best time of day/week to send my newsletter
A small request that may seem silly, but drop caps? I just really like them for starting a piece and for creating obvious breaks in the content.
File uploads finally! Awesome. However, there should be a visual button in the Editor too to upload files. Without it, many writers wouldn't realize they can drag and drop files into the Editor.
These tools look great—a step toward a smoother experience for everyone.
- I would like to see anchor links. Useful as one creates more high-effort posts and wants to link back to specific tracts. Also, and this is much bigger, a TOC feature would be great to see.
- There's a bug if an image is the first thing in a post: if there happens to be a newline above that image, it can't be removed (except by mucking about with the underlying HTML).
- As others have said, underline and strikethrough are quite useful sometimes.
- Another handy thing would be portal links to webpages: i.e. a little preview of what's being linked to.
- More urgently in my case though: the ability to post YouTube links *without* it blowing up into a playable panel! I wrote a post where I wanted to include a roundup of YouTube links at the top. A panel for each was unacceptable. I ended up having to create tinyurl links to each one and include those.
These are all great improvements, thank you for keeping Substack updated and user-friendly! Would you ever consider adding something such as ads to the platform or within articles for writers to make money off of free subscriptions directly through Substack?
Can a section on substack be under paywall?
Can PowerPoint also be embedded?
