We've been building out the capabilities of the Auto Display function bit by bit.

In this go round, we added our first ad option, as well as more call to action (CTA) options, and the ability to target CTAs by tag, with lots more to come.

The latest updates include a feature that enables websites to utilize the auto-display tool's in-post calls-to-action (CTAs) for displaying leaderboard ads, as well as the option to show different CTAs for the same slot depending on the post tags.

Other the big changes is the ability to send different messages to different tiers of paid users within relevant Autoresponder actions. A welcome message to your top tier can now easily be different than the one sent to your basic tier!

We also added a new version of the Popup that allows customized actions in buttons (like linking to external event registration pages).

Finally, we added an updated version of the Outpost API integration to let external apps refer to users with their own unique IDs, rather than by email addresses.

  • 🖼️ New Ad CTA - allows sites to use the auto-display tool's in-post CTAs to show leaderboard ads
  • 🔖 Ability for select different CTA for different page tag(s)
  • 🐛 A few bug fixes
  • 💬 Added ability to show different messages to different tiers of paid users in the relevant Autoresponders
  • 🔀 New version of the Popup that allows arbitrary action in the button (e.g. link to an external event registration page) rather than typical Ghost actions such as subscribing
  • 📇 Added new version of the Outpost API integration to allow sites to refer to subscribers using an external ID, in addition to the usual method of using their email address as the unique identifier
