Hashnode Series: The what and how!

Hello Awesome Hashnoders, 👋

If you have been reading the She Inspires Series on Hashnode, you must have already noticed that each interview is published on a single thread-like page, well it's called Series.

Some of our amazing users have asked for the "Hashnode Series" feature already and for a few months now, we've been testing it in beta and now we are certain that it is ready to be made public.

We officially introduce you to Hashnode Series!

Hashnode Series allows you to start a sequence of related articles and have them all in one place like the She Inspires Series.

She Inspires Series on Hashnode

Some knowledge cannot be shared in just one article and hence the need of Series where you can write many related articles and have them under one page. You can start a series of articles like: "Demystifying GraphQL", "JavaScript for Beginners", "Let's build 50 ReactNative apps in 50 days" and so much more. Just think of a topic, create a series and start writing.

GETTING STARTED

Using Hashnode series is simple and stress-free, if you're a Hashnoder already, then it will be much easier as you should be familiar with the user interface already.

Bolaji Ayodeji,

I have created a series.. I can see that under the "My Series" option. However, when I go to one of my existing post and try to add to a series, I do not see the already created series is populated for selection. Could be a bug?

Great feature! There is (already) a way to bookmark a whole series...?

We don't have that feature yet, but can definitely add it. Will discuss with engineering and let you know if we can support this.

For now, you can only Bookmark posts individually.
