We are still working on some updates this week.

We were unable to ship any updates this week, but have made some progress on our to-do list below. We thought we might have some stuff ready to push live this week, but ran into some bugs that need more time to fix.

Things we are working on:

  • Embeddable Cortex Shouts
  • Improving the Cortex Shouts hyperlink experience with improved metadata
  • Fixing a bug that affects displays of Like and Boost Buttons after clicking the Load More Stories Button
  • Shackpets
    • Working on improved onboarding, including a tutorial for new users
    • Working on a solution to better help users who have had posts rejected by AI moderation
