What's New


Pageviews Now Include All Profile Sections


We've updated the way Profile pageviews are counted for deviants and Groups. Many years ago, we expanded the pageview counter to include not just the front page of your Profile, but also the Journals tab and the Prints tab (but not individual Journals or Prints). We mistakenly never expanded the count to other areas of the Profile.


The pageview counter now includes pageviews to all sections of your Profile, including:

  • Gallery and Gallery Folders
  • Favourites and Collections
  • Other Profile subpages: Activity, Badges, Daily Deviations, Critiques, Gallery Stats, Polls, Wishlist

Presets in deviantART muro


Adding filters to images when using deviantART muro just got easier! 

The new Presets tab in the sidebar allows you to quickly easily transform an image's appearance, ranging from things that professional photographers often do during post processing of images to fun diversions.

The filters in the Preset tab (many of which were previously available in the Filters menu) make it easier than ever to edit and share images, which is especially useful when sharing images quickly in comments or Journals. It also provides an easy way to upload and share a full set of images without extra post-processing for the images you may not want to edit as thoroughly.

We did analysis of what was being used in the old filters, and made sure to preserve that functionality in the new system, either in the new Presets tab or via new sliders in the Adjust tab.



Change Log


  • For Beta Testers who have enabled Google Analytics, Favourites and Watches are now tracked as Events. Additionally, Analytics has been expanded to include all tabs and sub-pages of the Profile. Added by micahgoulart
  • The "All Watchers" and "All Groups" modals did not load on Profile pages for deviants with only numbers in their usernames. Fixed by ultramouse
  • In the Share menu on deviation pages, the text boxes for Link and Thumbnail were briefly not selectable. Fixed by fartprincess
  • Newly posted deviations created in deviantART muro would sometimes show broken images instead of a "Processing" placeholder image. Fixed by drommk
  • In Safari, when uploading a file for a new deviation, the file name would still be used for a deviation title if the title entered was previously used for another deviation, or if the title was entered while the file was still uploading. Fixed by duraseb
  • Titles of deviations displayed in the narrow left column of some Groups would overflow past the column width and would be cut off. Fixed by ultramouse
  • When writing a Critique, only a very small part of the the image was shown, which made leaving feedback difficult. Fixed by DEVlANT
  • For a short time, clicking on the Note button on a deviation page would result in redirection to a blank page. Fixed by fartprincess
  • When editing a literature deviation, removing a set preview image did not work properly. Fixed by ultramouse
  • The "Beta" marking on the Undiscovered browse mode was not optimized for retina screens. Fixed by lepidosteus
  • In very specific and rare conditions, if a Group had deactivated users in Admin classes, other Group Admins in that group would not receive messages in their Message Center when comments were left on that Group page. Fixed by DEVlANT
  • RSS support was extended to cover the Undiscovered and What’s Hot browse modes. Fixed by DEVlANT

Sta.sh Writer
  • Motion Book files will now be embedded and readable when included in a Journal, rather than appearing as a thumbnail. Changed by Alisey
  • Submitting a Journal to more than one Group would incorrectly try to resubmit the Journal to the first Group for each additional Group after, and would not work. Fixed by inazar
  • Drawings done in deviantART muro and added to a comment through the Add Media tool would display as HTML instead of showing the deviation. Fixed by kemayo

Your Feedback


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 varied. Some deviants mentioned occasionally browsing for art related to recent events, while some said they did not actively browse or search for art on recent events, although they do occasionally happen on art of that nature, be it from a Group or an individual artist they follow.
  • A few deviants mentioned browsing the Photojournalism category when interested in photography of recent things happening around the world.

Discuss!

I find the Change Log useful because it's a transparent way of telling people how you've been handling bugs and, well, shows you actually do fix stuff based on feedback.

I find the change log valuable, it's interesting to see what is getting fixed or improved, and occasionally I even get to see something that may have affected me if not fixed, so it's reassuring to be informed they work again.

On the other hand I also use it to look for an overdue fix to a major usability problem that has been affecting myself and many others for months - namely, the inability to send Notes using the mobile site since November - and am repeatedly disappointed to see it omitted every week. This is even more annoying following a recent site update that affirmed that messages and Notes were the biggest reason people even use the mobile site.

Internet Explorer. So not every browser has this problem? Then check the main broser first - clean up the cache, look at the extensions etc.

Try first to clean up the history. If it doesn't work then check please the other browsers to find out if this is the problem of IE only or it's something more global.

I always thought "Profile Pageviews" meant views of the profile page ... but if it is supposed to count other pages, too, then even fewer people must have visited my profile than I thought. *sigh*

Check the behaviour in other browser. If it concerns one browser only, clean up the cache and check the extensions. If it's the same everywhere, then I guess it's that internal problem which some of the users here experience too. Contact the Help Desk then.

I love the random divination feature but really wish there was just a dice icon I could hit instead of going to the menu each time. Anytime (read as "all the time") I need a little break from what I'm doing its nice to just have that and see less browsed and "cultivated" DA accounts since I then don't feel so bad about being on here for years and having so little interaction as well as inspiring me to discover people who aren't necessarily on the radar.....

Oh, and awesome on the updates! They rock. Thanks you!

Some users here experience this too, so I guess that's some internal problem. Try to check the Java Script Console in your browser to see if it provides the extra info.
