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.

What's New

Updates to the Twitter Widget

Due to Twitter's updated API and the removal of their first API, which was the original foundation for deviantART's Twitter Widget, the Twitter Widget for Profile Pages has been updated to match Twitter branding. The widget now displays retweets with the icon of the person you've retweeted, and images can be shown in-line, so that deviants don't have to click through to see images you're sharing.

To install the Twitter widget, upgrade to Premium Membership!

Please note: The display setting for @replies is not currently working properly.  This is a known issue that will be fixed shortly, and we apologize for any inconvenience.

Change Log

  • Users could not login for a few hours on Sunday. Fixed by chris
  • In rare cases, Journal URLs would contain /art/ rather than /journal/. Fixed by shadowhand
  • On the "Earnings" page, multiple items were sometimes present in a single transaction. Fixed by yury-n
  • When a deviation was deleted, the Print page for that deviation was still visible. Fixed by randomduck
  • When browsing categories with no subcategories, the page title and meta information were incorrect. Fixed by DEVlANT

DeviantArt muro

  • There was an error that would occur when using the "Edit in deviantART muro" button on items.  Fixed by mudimba
  • Browsing categories on deviantART with a large number of deviations created in deviantART muro could lead to errors. Fixed by inazar and sgrahamUK / Submit

  • Deviants can now browse their items using the same "Previous" and "Next" navigation buttons as on deviantART. Added by drommk
  • Scheduled Submit was unable to set a deviation as exclusive to a Group. Fixed by drommk
  • When refreshing the page of an item in a stack, clicking the browser's back button would not correctly redirect you to the parent page. Fixed by drommk Writer

  • Using the "Edit with deviantART muro" option when writing a Journal would produce an image that displayed like a full size deviation until you submitted your content, at which time it would become a thumbnail. Fixed by kemayo
  • When using deviantART muro to draw on an image included in a Journal, the status notifications were too narrow and looked broken. Fixed by kemayo
  • Submitting a Journal while it was trying to load an embedded deviation could result in that deviation disappearing from the document. Fixed by kemayo and Alisey
  • Internet Explorer 8 was having problems stripping unsafe attributes from pasted content. Fixed by inazar
  • The 'name' attribute was being removed from HTML links. Fixed by Alisey
  • Polish characters were impossible to insert. Fixed by Alisey

Your Feedback

Thank you for your feedback on last week's Site Update! Here's some of what you had to say.
  • Feedback regarding Writer in comments varied. Deviants were pleased to have the formatting tools and easier access to emoticons, though some mentioned concerns about spamming.
  • Some deviants said that they want the option to enable or disable sharing thumbnails on their deviations and Profile. This is something we are currently working on, and will add prior to a full launch.
  • Some users mentioned encountering issues with Writer and comments on mobile devices, and it has since been disabled on mobile devices.
  • Deviants would like to add Undiscovered and What's Hot to their Channels. Suggested by rosaarvensis
  • Responses to the Discuss topic ranged, though the majority of responses focused on advice for the artists. Those who responded encouraged artists to take their prices into consideration and not to undervalue themselves, as well as to be consistently in communication with the buyer, and prompt in delivery of the art. Another common point was to be careful not to take on too much work at once. iLantiis mentioned that both buyer and artist alike should be as specific as possible, both in what they want the art to be and what the art is to be used for.


Images in the Twitter Widget
As mentioned earlier in this Site Update, the Twitter Widget will now display images linked on your Twitter account. What are your thoughts on this? Do you like that it displays images you've shared on Twitter, or would you prefer a more compact display without images?

The images on the front page are huge now. I think it makes it harder for me to search through new images. And it takes longer to load. Is this a feature? Is there a way to turn this off and get smaller thumb nail sizes?

well what I was hoping as a request is that, for the Polls module, can you (as the one who asks the question in which everyone has to answer) just find a way to just let the admin of the profile check the results of the polls without having to just vote on your on poll? thank you.

I didn't know that you could edit a Journal once you submitted it or update it or even have some body else help update it. The reason that I am interested is that I submitted a Journal yesterday that I should do a little clean up on. It not too bad, but it could use some work on it.

When found the place to make a Journal entry, I was kind of tapping around on the computer, spur of the moment kind of thing. I took me about two hour type it in and enter my Journal.

It listed as the "Captain of Dream World Complaints Department"

Any suggestion that you could make or suggestion for future thing and resources to do something more than just Journals, would be appreciated.

hi. I just noticed that on one of my stories, I notice I spelt a word wrong. So I went to edit the mistake but on the edit page, The top bit had been cut but I could go on the rest of the page except for the top part (which had the bit to edit the mistakes so I couldn't do it)

It was the same when I went to my gallery, the top part was cut but the top started with my lastest 2 submissions but cut in half.

I wasn't sure if this was just my laptop being stupid or if this was a bug. need help plz.

Out of curiosity, at one point I was able to edit the journals written by other members of the groups I administrate. Seemingly after stash journals were introduced, I no longer have this privledge, even though I have full permissions in both groups AND said journals were set so that 'anyone may edit'.

Should I report this as a bug? Or is this something that's supposed to happen?

I don't know if anyone else has been having this problem, but...

When I acess deviantART on a desktop computer, it has recently been logging me out and making me log back in everytime the page refreshes or I navagate to a new page. But when I acess deviantART on my Kindle Fire, it works completely fine. Is there a solution to this, or is it just a bug?

Hi there! You'll want to file a bug report at the Help Desk about this. :)

It would be nice if you would remove icons like:
Because they are really annoying
