I see the case for not wanting the picker at the top not to take up too much vertical space, but I think having the "episode" titles more clearly visible might still be useful when you're looking for a specific topic.
Thanks for the feedback. Yeah, definitely interested in exploring possible ways to adjust the design. It's the most nimble part of the whole thing.
At the very least it could be simple enough to add title attributes plus screen-reader cues.
What about doing something authors are currently already doing, and prepending something like this to the post?
This post is part of a series:
Being Awesome - Part 1: Be Kind to Yourself
Being Awesome - Part 2: Be Kind to Others
This post is part of a series:
maybe with a little bit of fancy styling.
Is there a non-screen reader way to see the title attribute on mobile devices?
At the moment it's fully just dots.
But definitely open to adjustments here (not just saying this to be conciliatory, I feel like it should probably be adjusted)
I think you can do something like Wikipedia's Contents block. User can hide/expand it.
This is so wonderful, got my Orchid Tutorials series all wired up in just seconds!
I don't know if it received additional work with this new feature but thanks to the builtins prefetching capabilities of dev.to switching from one article to the next in your series is basically istantaneous.
Don’t forget the edge-caching! Most requests served pre-gzipped from a node near you. 🤗
wonders of fastly?
Wonders of leaning on Fastly, I’d say. It’s not something you can plug in without a lot of intentionality and trade offs.
Fastly’s been great but Cloudflare and others are doing really cool things. Definitely an exciting space.
Quoting Young Frankestein: Alive! It's alive!
I gave it a try on a former series and it seems to be working like a charm, thanks!
Unrelated question.... how did you create the table of contents in your posts?
Magic. I wasn’t looking hard enough.
Thanks so much :)
I'm writing my first dev.to articles right now - it'll be a series of five or six articles. How is the order of articles done? Is it just the time of publishing that determines the order? Or can I affect "manually" which is number 1, 2, ...?
So excited about this!
Easy peasy japanesey! I converted my JSON post into 'json-helpful-tips' series:
I don't know if anyone else does this but I have an index page links to all the articles in the correct order.
Would it, therefore, make sense to allow people to specify an index page that the "series" tag can link to?
I'm debating using a series vs a tag for devrel posts. The content are all around devrel, so a tag makes sense. But they also could be read in succession as they all relate - so a series makes sense.
Do you have any thoughts on what might be better for the reader?
Sweet! Usually end up writing series of posts (cus that's how I roll). This is super useful!
This is so useful! Thank you for working on it.
Is the order in which the series of posts are linked together determined by the date the post was created, published, something else?
