Blynk.io and Blynk.cc

#1

If I enter blynk.io or blynk.cc in my Google Chrome browser URL field, I’m taken to blynk.io. If I click on “Developers” on the top navigation bar, I’m taken to https://blynk.io/en/developers. If I click on “Developers” on the top navigation bar, I’m again taken to https://blynk.io/en/developers (it’s cyclic). In the recent past, there were links on the top navigation bar to this Community forum, documentation, … Now these links are at the very bottom of the page. Is this the user experience the Blynk folks are after? Could be … just thought I’d ask.

Also, the link to the roadmap has been removed.

I’m not too concerned with the Roadmap link. I see the Roadmap as a giant black hole. You take the time to submit thoughtful ideas and they disappear into the ether. No acknowledgement. No “that’s a dumb idea.” No “that’s already supported.” No nothing.

I’m more concerned with the Documentation link. Eventually, you find your way to https://blynk.io/en/getting-started. It walks you through,

  • Download Blynk app
  • Install Blynk Library
  • Connect hardware

but no link to the Documentation (accept at the very bottom of the page). It’s hard enough to get new Community Members to read the Documentation. It shouldn’t be so hard to find. I’m not sure it shouldn’t be required reading. There’s got to be some way of improving the signal-to-noise ratio on this forum.

Thanks for the suggestion. I think Pavel had thoughts about this.

Very nice! I’m pretty sure that information wasn’t there two days ago. :wink:

Let’s clarify the issue, because I’m not sure I’m getting it.

  1. blynk.cc is no longer used. Blynk.io is the one and only primary website we have. It’s still under development. More and more information will appear there.
  2. https://blynk.io/en/developers - leads to…well… all resources for developers. This information is there for more than a week. If you click Developers in the top, it’s the same page, so you are staying at Developers
  3. Links on top of the community page were not changed:
  4. Roadmap is available from Developers and it’s not a black hole, for sure. All the feedback is collected and processed on a bi-weekly basis. However, due to some work with the website, there are some delay which will be soon resolved

Am I still missing something? Maybe something is not working on the website - please let me know.

Thanks!

It’s working well now, but it wasn’t working like this a few days ago.

Looks very good now, I like the new styling and imagery - looks very professional and eye catching.

I agree with @PeteKnight. This wasn’t the user experience two days ago. Maybe @PeteKnight and I were looking at a cached copy. Don’t know. This looks great.

Pavel,

Would you please let us know once the Roadmap has been updated to reflect all of the submitted ideas. I’ve submitted several ideas in the past and not a single idea appears on the Roadmap. I can’t see where there’s even a record of the fact I submitted the ideas (hence the black hole). Is there a way for Community members to view the ideas they’ve submitted (assuming they don’t appear on the Roadmap)?

Thank you,

Joe

Hi Pavel,

Is the work with the website complete? Have all the ideas submitted over the course of, say the last two months been incorporated into the roadmap?
