Studio Release 162 | January 5, 2022


Following the end of the holiday season we shipped a number of quality of life improvements for components and a handful of other changes.

Better reviews ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

Our reviews component has been revamped to include better layout support as well as properties for toggling stars, avatars, and taglines.

Animated logos & more!

Our standard logos component has been updated with support for animated scrolling! We also added support for grayscale, black & white, or reversed filtering.

Content subscriptions are no more

While this is a valuable feature for people who want to require a subscription in order to access content, Stripe deprecated their payment forms entirely and is now telling users to use payment links to achieve the same functionality. We were faced with updating our code to use payment links instead of forms (which was costly) or phasing out the feature. As this is not a widely used feature we chose the latter.

Meta description is now optional!

Previously we required that users add a meta description to their page before we let them publish that page. This is no longer the case. While it can be important for SEO, people often bypass this requirement with dummy content. This is actually worse for SEO. And if you don’t need to worry about SEO for your use case it makes no sense to require it. Given this, we decided the best thing was just to make it an optional field.
