Changelog

Every change to Buttondown, even the small ones. (Those tend to be the important ones, after all.)

2022-12-01

You can now include a link to your Mastodon account, just like your Twitter (et al) accounts!

2022-11-30

Filtering on /v1/subscribers is now stronger:

  1. You can filter down to subscribers who do not have a certain tag with /v1/subscribers?-tag=foo
  2. You can filter down to subscribers with specific metadata with /v1/subscribers?metadata[foo]=bar

2022-11-29

Buttondown warns you when you're about to manually add a subscriber that already exists; additionally, when manually adding a subscriber you can now optionally activate them automatically instead of asking them to confirm their address.

2022-11-28

  1. Added hotkey support for bulk actions like 'deleting emails' or 'reminding subscribers'.
  2. Authors can now opt out from receiving notifications for new premium subscribers (or unsubscribers). They can be taxing!

2022-11-14

Added support for /v1/emails/:id/analytics, which returns aggregated analytic details about an email.

2022-11-07

You can now select all items that match a given filter for a bulk action (such as deleting subscribers), even if there are so many items that they don't fit on a single page.

2022-11-02

  1. Archive list pages should now load around twice as fast.
  2. The "address" field has been removed for now. No more random locations at the end of your emails!

2022-10-31

You can now change the canonical URL of your emails to an external URL (if you're, say, cross-publishing alongside an external publication or blog.)

2022-10-28

You can now modify the slug and metadata of emails before sending them.

2022-10-27

Launched a brand-new writing interface.

2022-10-19

You can now filter your emails by their source (source meaning from the API, from an import, from the app itself, and so on.)

2022-10-18

Added an official glossary to the documentation, because there are a lot of annoying acronyms and buzzwords when it comes to emails!

2022-10-17

Before filtering data on a list page, Buttondown gives you a preview of how many objects fall under that filter. This is combinatorial, so you can see how many subscribers with the premium tag came from a given UTM source and so on!

2022-10-12

Added a public-facing changelog. (Hey, is that meta or what?)

2022-10-05

Rebuilt the settings interface into a unified page to make things more navigable and accessible.
