August 8th 2023
We're happy to share some updates to the status page theme that enhances the experience for your subscribers. Note that these changes only impact the service status theme, not the previous white label or custom themes.
Component description icon updated.
When a component has a description configured, previously, users would need to hover over a help icon to view the description. We have replaced this with an information icon to make it more straightforward that this is just for detail and not a help marker.
Improved notice update timeline.
We have made a minor adjustment to the notice update timeline to provide a clearer view. Previously, the update or notice state would display 'x minutes later', but now it just shows the notice state.
Unsubscribe link now goes to the preferences.
When a subscriber now clicks on the Unsubscribe link at the bottom of an email notification, the link goes to a dedicated preferences page where they can manage their subscription, including unsubscribing completely.
Improved dark/light mode customization.
We have fixed a bug where if a status page was either light or dark mode, the header/hero background was darker or lighter based on the mode, and the page had open notice, the text was unreadable.
We also fixed a bug in dark mode where the border on components was incorrect.
Better Markdown support.
You can now use code blocks in notices, presenting code in the appropriate Markdown.
To summarise the changes:
- The component description icon now uses an information icon.
- The notice update timeline is now cleaner.
- The unsubscribe link takes users to their preferences screen on the status page.
- Improved dark/light mode customisation.
- Code blocks are now supported using Markdown.
