Last week, we shipped an exciting new feature for everyone on Hashnode: localized tag pages.
How does this work and what does it imply? Localized tags act as a filter on your blog. This feature works so that tags on your blog posts link directly to your own tag page with all your posts under it, so you and your readers can browse through them easily.
Before this update, clicking on an article's tag would take you directly to the tag page on Hashnode where you would find all of the blog posts published by everyone under said tag. Now, clicking on a tag will first redirect you to your blog's tag page, i.e. yourblog.hashnode.dev/tag/css so that readers can access your posts with that tag first.
We've updated all of the links at the bottom of each article, so they take you to the localized tag page's new route in the blog.hashnode.dev/tag/tag-name format:
These new URLs are shareable: which means you can also add them to your custom Hashnode menu by navigating to your Navbar Settings:
Once in a localized tag page, you can navigate to the usual community tag page by clicking on the Explore button too:

Kudos to our awesome engineering team (Gaurang specifically) for putting this to work! 👋
