re: What would you like to see on your DEV profile? VIEW POST


It's possible to submit the idea of an Instagram link as a suggestion to the repo on GitHub and if approved write the code for this.

I was really keen to have a Medium link on Dev profiles so I did this and it was merged into the codebase. Here is a link to the issue, that has a link to merged PR commits, in case you're interested in seeing how this could be done.

Add Medium link and icon to settings and profile #901

Is your feature request related to a problem? Please describe.

I would like to link my personal website to the Website Url in the settings that displays on profiles with the external link icon. However, I regularly write programming tutorials on Medium and would like that link to be on my profile too.

This presents a difficult decision as to whether to include my personal site as the Website url, or the Medium profile url - where I share a lot of my writing on programming and software development.

Describe the solution you'd like

Could there be a Medium url in the settings, which when included would add a link with the Medium icon on profile pages?

This would then mean a personal or business website could be used for the Website url in the settings.

Describe alternatives you've considered A clear and concise description of any alternative solutions or features you've considered.

Additional context Add any other context or screenshots about the feature request here.
