πŸͺ΅ January Changelog Rollup 🌯

Happy February, y'all! πŸ’– We're sharing this a little later into the month than we'd hope to, but without further ado, we present the changes we shipped in January!

This edition of our changelog is split into functional sections, which we hope will help you easily identify the relevancy of each change. If you'd like to see them presented differently, we'd love to hear from you in the comments below!

Accessibility improvements









The team has been working really hard on making several changes to the way tags behave and function. Check these out, and comment below with any thoughts you'd like to share πŸ‘‡:


Phew! It was a busy January and the year was just getting started...

We will be sharing the February changelog rollup 🌯 in just a couple of weeks. Look out for these posts towards the start of each month. We published our February rollup in time for Valentine's Day because we always love to read your comments in the discussion below β€” a little gift to ourselves. 😍

Until next time!

For those of you who don't want to use Google Analytics, we also disabled the JavaScript for GA when Admins leave the input box blank for View ID under /admin/customization/config > Google Analytics

Oooh good point ! With GDPR compliance on France, Google Analytics isn't legal.

That "change" in how GDPR is being enforced along with a Creator request is the reason we made this update. If you did not have the GA ID populated, it wasn't actively working but the JavaScript was still loading. Now we don't load the JavaScript at all so you can be confident of your compliance.
