Four years of collaboration with the LaTeX Community forums and sites
By John Hammersley

Just over four years ago we began one of our first collaborations – working with Stefan Kottwitz of the LaTeX Community forums and sites such as TeXample.net and pgfplots.net to provide a direct way for users of those sites to open up code examples directly in Overleaf (then called WriteLaTeX).

To get an idea of how it works, try clicking on the image below. It will open up in Overleaf for immediate editing online, just as if you'd clicked on the "Open in Overleaf" link on the example itself.

Growing adoption of ORCID on Overleaf – over 5,000 linked ORCID accounts and four ORCID badges!
By Michael Mazour

At the start of November 2016 we launched our integration with ORCID, to enable users to link their Overleaf account with their ORCID iD to help securely establish their identity and provide a quick way to login to Overleaf using their ORCID credentials.

We're delighted to announce that as of today, 5,295 Overleaf users have linked their ORCID accounts with their Overleaf account – equivalent to almost 50 per day since the launch! It's great to see such a rapid adoption of ORCID by our users, and reflects the growing adoption of ORCID as a standard, persistent identifier for researchers around the world.

We're also excited to have received our first four ORCID badges (who doesn't like badges?!) for officially conforming to the ORCID standards for Authenticating, Collecting, Displaying and Connecting the ORCID iDs on Overleaf. Check out our badge gallery below :-)
