The official "Welcome to Steemit" landing page has been created and submitted for review!
Welcome to Steemit
@bitcoiner and I were tasked to create this as an onboarding solution for new users. For more information and context, see these past posts:
- Help us create the official "Welcome to Steemit" landing page - Community Input Needed (Part 1)
- An Onboarding Solution in the Works: Creating the Official 'Welcome to Steemit' Landing Page [Community Draft Content Review]
When new users sign up, they will be redirected to this welcome page, which will surely be a helpful guide. We should all know how difficult it was starting out due to the many, many new concepts.
On the user's blog, if they haven't posted anything yet, there will be a helpful link to quickly go to the page again:
The link will be shown on the empty feed page as well:
Finally, there will always be a link in the hamburger menu for access from anywhere on the site:
The code submission can be found on this GitHub pull request:
Everything still needs to be reviewed and approved by Steemit, Inc. before it will be put up on the live site. There is no guarantee that it will be approved, and we may have to go back and make changes before they will accept it.
This is just the first version. There are still a lot of improvements that can be made on top of what we have done. Examples: Table of Contents, accordions to collapse/expand content, more content, etc. We hope that once this is up on the live site and people start to use it, that the community and dev team can continue to build on it.
While this is undergoing review, you can see a live demo of this new page on @bitcoiner's test site!
