RTL languages support

by Laurent Pellegrino, Founder and CEO
New
RTL languages support

Only some languages in the world use Right-To-Left (RTL) text direction, but these languages cover over a billion people. This added to the fact we received recurrent requests to support RTL text direction in the last weeks, we decided to add support for RTL languages.

RTL is now fully supported on Newspages and all Widgets!

We also include limited support with our dashboard. The support is said limited with our dashboard because the user interface remains in English and RTL is enabled for the content you input only (e.g. a publication title or content).

You are probably wondering how to activate RTL? The only action to perform is to set your project language in your project settings. From the selected language, we are able to deduce if your project requires RTL support. If that’s the case, then Noticeable components adapt automatically: HTML layout, text direction, date and time format, styles, etc.

Default phrases on Newspages and Widgets do not translate automatically but you can customize them with your own words, and thus language, from our dashboard.

In case you write any of Arabic, Farsi, Hebrew, Urdu, or any other RTL languages, we would really like to hear about your experience. Drop us an email or send us your feedback in the form below.

Updates for August 24, 2021

by Laurent Pellegrino, Founder and CEO
New
Enhancement
  • We’ve added a new option to set a link on the title of a top-banner widget (in addition to or replacement of a CTA button). When enabled, you can either redirect to the publication on your Newspage or the URL of your choice:

  • When defining a custom URL (for instance in a CTA button while configuring your publication on step 2 Options, or with the title link of your top-banner), you can now use the placeholder {publication_slug} inside your URL to create a dynamic redirection. The placeholder is automatically replaced by its corresponding value when the URL is created.

  • The live widget editor on the Noticeable dashboard now includes a dark mode to better visualize your widgets when using light colors:

  • The top-banner vertical padding set on mobile devices has been decreased to improve the aesthetic.

  • An issue preventing the Newpage embed widget to load on mobile devices has been fixed.

Updates for August 13, 2021

by Laurent Pellegrino, Founder and CEO
Enhancement
  • The widget setup page has been reworked to mention useful resources, including new links for integration examples with Angular, Lit, React, and Vue.

  • A sizing and positioning issue has been fixed with the Icon trigger widget. You can still adjust the vertical positioning using for instance a negative CSS margin-top but this will no longer be required in most cases.

  • Iframes created and injected by the Noticeable SDK now include a title to prevent a warning with Lighthouse inspection.

  • We’ve fixed an issue preventing the publication date and time to display on Newspages for newly created projects.

  • The input color picker used in many places on the dashboard was not always behaving as expected. This is now fixed.

Top Banner Widget

by Laurent Pellegrino, Founder and CEO
New
Widgets
Top Banner Widget

Great news! We’ve released a new widget.

The new Top Banner widget allows you to tell people about your latest updates, promotions, discounts, maintenances or even keep users updated about ongoing issues.


As with other widgets, you can configure the style and behavior of the Top Banner widget directly from our live editor without coding knowledge. More than 40 properties are configurable!

The widget layout is quite flexible in the sense that you can either set a title, title + description, Call-To-Action (CTA), and even include a countdown to promote limited offers. Metrics such as the number of views and CTA clicks are also collected.

Updates for June 15, 2021

by Laurent Pellegrino, Founder and CEO
New
Enhancement

Dashboard

  • The links to download PDF for invoices have been fixed (this was broken due to a change on Stripe).

Newspages

  • You can filter content using multiple labels. For instance, if you have labels A, B, C, D and you click on labels A and D from your Newspage’s menu, then you will get publications that have label A or label D set.

  • A visual loading state has been added to the button used to submit the subscription form.

  • Clicks on Call-To-Action buttons using the mouse middle click are counted as regular clicks.

  • Publication date and time are formatted using the locale defined in your project settings. If no formatting rules are available for your project language, we fall back to en-US.

  • The background color for CTA buttons is set to transparent by default instead of white.

  • The number of JavaScript files required to render the page has been drastically reduced.

  • The number of publications displayed on the home page has been increased to 9 from 5.

  • The subscribe button is hidden on pages related to subscriptions.

  • The resource /subscribe has moved to /subscriptions and a redirection has been set up for the transition.

Widgets

  • The Newspage Embed widget is now communicating with other widgets. This means that publications read or seen state changes on your Newspage via the Embed widget are instantly propagated to the Popup widget if you are using both widgets in your pages.

  • When clicking on publication images from a Newspage Embed widget, the image opens in full resolution in a lightbox that is no longer attached to the inner frame but to the parent page, thus making the widget integration smooth and transparent.
