Flarepedia has reached an exciting milestone - we've officially launched Flarepedia 1.0! From the beginning, it has been Flarepedia's mission to build and design an environment that will help bootstrap education and understandance of the Flare Network and the crypto ecosystem as a whole. With the launch of 1.0 we believe we are one step closer to accomplishing that goal.

Welcome to 1.0

Flarepedia now has a new dynamic homepage. Previously, our homepage was static content that wouldn't update day to day. Our vision of the Flarepedia homepage is to act as a portal into the world of Flare and this new homepage is the first iteration of that.

  • Added a new section for dynamic stats that promote engagement with Flarepedia
  • Added a new section that lists the most popular pages across Flarepedia broken down by different categories and collections
  • Added a new spotlight section that features pages across Flarepedia
  • Added a new events section that allows you to see what's going on in the Flare community right from the homepage
  • Added an external resource section that allows visitors to find more information on the Flare ecosystem - we plan on extending this type of content in the future

Dynamic Homepage

We've updated the look of the events page to be more user-friendly and information-rich

  • Graphical redesign for the events homepage
  • Added countdown timers right on the events homepage so visitors can easily see when the event is happening
  • Changed the ‘fire’ react icon to a ‘heart’ icon to more clearly describe the purpose of the button
  • Various graphical updates for individual event pages
  • Guest visitors can now like events without creating an account
  • Reworked how Flarepedia tracks unique views
  • Added an icon to the site banner that links to the events page and shows a notification when there's new events

Events Redesign

  • Major Flarepedia Glossary redesign and rebrand
  • Flarepedia Glossary is now referred to as ‘All’
  • View all of Flarepedia's content, sort by category, collection, views, and likes
  • This section of Flarepedia will continue to be a high priority as it will act as the portal into our knowledge base

Glossary

We've made several visual improvements to our information pages

  • Page links have been redesigned and are more colorful to stand out to the user
  • Added the for both members and guests to like pages
  • Added hover tooltips to various elements for desktop and touch tooltips for mobile
  • Added work in progress banner to inform visitors of the early and unfinished content throughout our information pages - building out this content will be our next primary goal
  • The ‘TLDR’ section will now be collapsed if the content of the section is too large. On desktop, hovering will expand this section with an option to pin it. On mobile, tap to expand

Information Pages

We added an announcements page that will be used to publish sitewide communications such as this one.

  • Added the announcements page and subpages
  • Added an icon to the site banner that links to the announcements page and shows a notification when there are new announcements
  • Added an announcement bar sitewide that will display announcements

Site Announcements

  • Flarepedia navigation drop down now displays the various page categories to easily find content across the site
  • Added an updated pop-up box when navigating from Flarepedia to external websites
    • Provides first time users with a disclaimer and warning about navigating to external websites
    • Added a three second countdown before giving the user the ability to navigate to the external website to give them an opportunity to review the clearly displayed full URL that they will be visiting
    • We also added backend functionality that we will be discussing in the near future - this functionality will give us the ability to track the visitation of external websites and source information about the external site from the community. The goal of this is to build a wall between Flarepedia and potential scam / phishing websites that may slip past moderation. More details to be released.

Navigation

We're introducing a new way to share content through Flarepedia and will be phasing it out to the rest of the site going forward.

  • Added a new Sharesheet function to various pages throughout Flarepedia - this will be rolled out sitewide over the coming weeks
    • Allows the user to easily share Flarepedia content to various platforms
    • Allows the individual to include a unique identifier to their share links which will allow them to track how much traffic they bring to Flarepedia - a neat way to measure how much you're contributing to the community
      • Members will be able to view these personal statistics once the member dashboards launch
    • The unique identifier option can be turned off via the Sharesheet options page

Sharesheet & Share Statistics

You now have a way to contact Flarepedia directly

  • Added three different contact pages and forms: Contact, Feedback, and Report

Contact Pages

  • Added recaptcha validation across various input fields
  • Added load indicator on desktop when navigating across Flarepedia
  • Various other changes / bug fixes

Other

Moving forward we will have a heavy focus on building out our knowledge base and less focus on building out site functionality / features. We will be announcing our Champions Program shortly. This program will be a closed beta that will allow its members to start publishing content to Flarepedia. The target audience for this program will be community members and project developers who are knowledgeable about the Flare Network, its components, and the crypto space as a whole. You can read more about the Champions Program here.
