Got any feedback, bug reports, or suggestions for WIP?
Currently working on thundercontent.com

It’s a feature I’m looking for since 1 year: link WIP to Twitter (auto use #buildinpublic).

When I post a /done: it post on my Twitter with the hashtag :)

Maker of WIP amongst other things.

Would a Zapier integration solve this for you? Then you could configure it to automatically tweet any new todo you complete.

Thanks for your feedback! I would support over 220 languages, so it's not wrong to say "any" language :)

What are some of the best practices for implementing magic links?

Another trick to speed up the signup/login process is to put the code in the subject line of the email directly. So just with the notification (from his smartphone, or on his desktop) the user can signup/login without having to open the email.

Some great tips. Thanks for sharing! Will probably implement it this way in the future.

I recommend using a temporary 6-digit code (15 minutes) rather than a login URL.

There is the historical side of the web, to enter a password (so as not to lose old users) and then log in with the feeling of entering a password.

As you say: "In some cases, (with a login URL) people might open the magic link in the wrong browser session."

With the code, people stay on the same page and the onboarding process is continuous (there is no opening of a new tab from the inbox).

You just have to put an email input (login/signup is the same, so no more error for people who don't know the difference between login and signup).

Then ask for the code in a second input. What I do is that I add the 3 links to the most popular inbox to accelerate access to the inbox for the user

How do you collect bug details from users/clients?

Most of the time users send me a message with Crisp, and then I take note :)

For Thundercontent, I use a custom solution (thundercontent.com/changelog) + Crisp.chat

Made many products. Failed always. But never gonna give up. 🤩🚀

Hi Paul, thanks for the answer. How do you get logs in case of issues on customer side? (Or does crisp.chat allow you to get those somehow?)

What worked best for you as a traffic source?

It depends on your business.

for me what works is :
· Post on Linkedin (The algo is broken, the reach is huge. you can make ultra viral post simply)
· Facebook group (don't spam!:) )
· Specialized forum / Slack (answer people's questions and if your product can help share it)

Reading newsletters
Currently working on thundercontent.com

I keep my inbox at 0 when I have a newsletter either I read it directly in gmail or I delete it. 'Read later' doesn't work for me.
