New Features & Updates
Subcommunity & Category filtering for Leaderboards
With Layout Editor's Leaderboard widget you can showcase top community contributors i.e.
- users with the highest reputation points
- users with the most accepted answers for Q&A
- users with the most posts
You can now configure leaderboards to showcase top users per subcommunity or per category using the Filter by settings.
Advanced Media Embed for discussions and comments
With our new Rich 2 format, community members can now use embed code to add media to their discussions and comments.
- Embed a Google Maps, or Calendar
- Embed videos from Vidyard,
- Embed content from Spotify
Users will only be able to embed content from domains added to Trusted Domains settings in your Dashboard > Settings > Security page. For example, to allow users to embed media from Google add
*.google.com/ * (with no space between / and *) to your list of Trusted Domains.
Include user profile fields in webhook deliveries and level up your Zaps
Our Webhooks have been improved to include additional user info in the user fragments of webhook deliveries.
- by default, all public profile fields will be included in webhook deliveries
- when adding and editing Webhooks, you can opt into including private and/or internal fields if needed.
See Custom Profile Fields to learn how to configure profile fields.
This also means that our Zapier integration has been improved, and you can now configure Zaps that require user profile fields
