In our continuous effort to improve the deviantART experience, we're publishing weekly Site Updates to keep members informed and to gather feedback. Below is a list of recent changes to the site, bug fixes, and feedback that was brought up by members in the last Site Update.
For developers, our API framework and documentation have been updated to allow for quicker, easier changes in the future.
- For Journals submitted before 2012, old links to those Journals temporarily stopped working. Fixed by inazar
- When saving a mailing address to your account, saving would fail if the optional second address field was empty. Fixed by duraseb
- Files could not be removed when editing Premium Content on a deviation. Fixed by outgoingcoyote
- When on the Manage Friends page, clicking on a custom Friends List would automatically navigate to the Unsorted section instead of that Friends List. Fixed by yumeruby
- Some users experienced difficulty editing the tagline on their Profile Page. Fixed by yumeruby
- There was a cropping issue in the Prints submission process. Fixed by yury-n
- Poll answers containing apostrophes would not display properly. Fixed by outgoingcoyote
- Links to the "Give Points" modal on one's Profile Page did not work. Fixed by kemayo
- Sta.sh's main menu was not displaying properly for logged-out users. Fixed by outgoingcoyote
- It was not possible to change a full-sized deviation to a thumbnail when the Edit menu setting, "Always Add Full Size Images", was disabled. Fixed by Alisey
Thank you for the feedback on last week's Site Update! Here's some of the feedback you left for us:
- Responses to the Discuss topic were varied. Some deviants mentioned using Journals for solely personal purposes, while other deviants mentioned posting Journals for things other than personal reasons.
- Several deviants said they use their Journals for a combination of personal, art, and promotional updates. Some mentioned alternating between Journals, using some for art features and others for personal art updates.
- Silver-MoonNight suggested a quantity function for the Commissions widget, so that more than one Commission can be ordered at a time.
If there were an improved way to highlight and watch Collections, would you want all of your Collections to be included, or would you want to pick which Collections would appear?
