Organizing data has never been so fun!

1.7 — The Lists Update

List Folders

If you’re someone with more than a page of lists you knew very well how difficult it could be to find what you’re looking for. That’s why folders are being introduced.

Sorting and Filtering

Another feature to help manage your list chaos is finally the addition of sorting methods and filters.

New sort methods

Revamped List Page

Organizing lists with folders and filters is cool but what about the actual lists? Well glad you asked!

List Stats

A few stats were added to help give you an idea how your plays stack up against the current list. As you can see above you’ll now see the percentage of games you’ve played in this list, along with a breakdown of how many of the games you gave to each status. Along with that you’ll see your average rating for every game in that list you’ve rated. In all of these cases duplicates are subtracted from the total counts.

List Likes and Comments

You can now also like and comment on lists just like reviews! Liking a list will then save it to your likes page where you can revisit it at anytime.

Tons of Other Changes

Lists now display in rows of 5 to give a nice even 100 per page, you can now swap between the grid / detail view mode at anytime, you can auto-sort list entries to save lots of manual ordering, you can fade played list entries with the new Fade played option, list descriptions will have an expand button if they appear too long, and a UI refresh on top of all that.

Other Notable Changes

While lists were the focus, there were a few other notable additions that came in the 1.7 update.

Updated mobile views

I won’t lie, the mobile version of the site hasn’t been getting its fair share of attention. That’s why I’ve spent some time this update to really polish many popular pages so that they look just as good while you’re on the go!

Thank You to our Patrons!

I can’t express this enough, this site wouldn’t be here without all your support. So I thank you to those who have helped support the site during 1.7's development. I’m hoping to have a new treat for our backers soon 😉

Next time on Backloggd

While I don’t know exactly what 1.8 will contain, I do know I want to lean more towards smaller but more frequent updates. That way things are less prone to breaking all at once and I can get new, exciting features in your hands at a quicker pace.
