Beta Changelog

Hey everyone, now that beta is pretty much launched, we're going to keep a changelog updated of everything we launch new to the site. We'll keep adding to it as we go. I might create a "Next Up" list so you guys can see what we're planning to fit next but that might be a few more days once I get re-oriented from my trip to Singapore :)


12/17
- Submission page altered to remove extra step in preview
- Collab links in subs now working


12/11
- Fixed default view for products in catalog


11/16-12/4
- Make login keep you on the page you're on
- Tons of holiday sale promotion stuff
- Better submission choosing tools internally for the new site
- More submission comments fixes
- A mega-ton of other random but important boring stuff that I won't bother going into detail on


The last couple weeks have been a bit of a bust for improving the site and more about getting us through the holidays. More meaty stuff to come soon!


11/15

- Added direct links into the forums from the PLAY nav
- Removed the tabs from the top bar
- Added a cart icon
- Added the # link in the forum to link to last page
- Removed the aggressive click action on the forum listing page so you can open threads in tabs easier
- Fixed long product titles breaking things
- Fixed screwed up "MADE by" pages


11/12
- Fixes to Facebook login
- Fixes to submission comments
- Allow designs to be shown in addition to photos on product collections pages
- Speed up a slow query in scoring
- An issue with submission slider width




Answers to frequently reported issues


What's with the voting days on challenges?
Currently designs are allowed to be voted on for the entire challenge, so some designs can be voted on for 20+ days. We're going to change this so that each sub gets the same 7 days of voting as the old site.


Why can't I vote on all designs?
Currently you can only vote on designs within a challenge. We're going to be changing that to allow you to vote on all designs at the same time, not just on a per challenge basis.


Why's the nav so big?
We're changing the nav to be smaller.


The site's slow!
We're actively speeding up the site.


Why can't I search for anything other than products?
We're re-doing the search completely and until that is done there will only be product search. In the meantime if you add "site:threadless.com" to a google search it works quite well to search for anything.


Why can't I see the score during the voting period?
We will be adding this back in.

Thanks Jake for this, DEF a right step in keeping the community in the loop :)

Question: I thought I had backed up all my slogans from the previous tab but I have not, is there a way I can get back into the older Threadless setup one last time and make a pdf of my slogans so they won't just be thrown on the trash pile? lol.

Also I was wondering where on the priority list is merging our previous accounts in terms of the proper amount of prints/proper amount of designs voted on/etc in our accounts?

find large text completely a novelty until it can actively move around the screen and blast the other comments you don't like into smithereens!

skaw
skaw profile pic Staff

your old profile is still there right now.

the prints/votes is fairly high on the list.

Thanks so much Jake! I tried previously to access it but for some reason couldn't, perhaps it was during the changeover to the beta site...

Last page link! YES!!!!! Thanks guys!

Sorry if someone already mentioned this, but am I doing something wrong with trying to filter the forum to "participated and/or watched" and nothing happens?

myteemo
myteemo profile pic Alumni

Maybe someone has mentioned this somewhere, but whenever I click on a threadless link from my iPhone I get an error message.

[+duracell-]

hurray for functioning # !

when you get to it - perhaps maybe possibly if we had a working preview window or an edit button half of my posts would look more professional and less like diarrhea, please thanks.

Goldendust

Duracell, your preview window doesn't work? What's wrong with it?

I'm really liking the new post format options. There's even an undo/redo button! Has anyone tried playing around with the limits of the code button?

Morkki
Morkki profile pic Alumni

The code button is used if you want to display a bit of html without the browser interpreting as an actual bit of code, like this:

<a href="http://beta.threadless.com">link</a>

Well like for example - if I type something, hit enter hits enter then type something else, it all gets strung together on one line even though preview window says I'm good. Makes formatting difficult.

Goldendust

Morkki... I just assumed it was just for using html within the blogs. But yeah, that might be useful?

Duracell, I forgot about the line breaks thing - I haven't noticed it messing up lately?

I think an official bug-reporting blog should be maintained and stickied too.

New SHOP navigation (no images, condensed format) looks much better, Jake.

so big

Something I have just noticed is that because all designs are saved as threads I have to click hundreds of times to get to any of my old blogs are they are all chucked in together which I am finding really unhelpful

i'm so lost but i don't mind bumping into things that have padded corners

micheleficeli

Great improvements i see here. Also, good thing to get the hashtag back. Any plan to modify the filters' sidebar in the shop? I think it works/looks not as good as it was in the old site. I'd suggest to remove the roll-over scrollbars and just make it condensed as it was.

Thanks for keeping us updated :)

some of the formatting stuff is broken but we have a fix in for it that should ship today.

Nice, I can finally navigate to the last page of a thread.

i have a question for people:

Do you guys actually use the various forum sub categories to post stuff? I just post everything under general =/

skaw
skaw profile pic Staff

i kinda doubt people currently use the categories but i think this new format will encourage people to do so more.

nickv47
nickv47 profile pic Alumni

comments on designs aren't working again.

working now.

when you tweet a design, it's not kicking out a link back.

aw what happened to this

jstumpenhorst
jstumpenhorst profile pic Alumni

Great blog! I like being able to see the progress you guys are making on continually improving the site! Here is something that I just noticed that was an issue for me personally (and i'm guessing others as well):

On my profile it only shows 4 of my printed designs, it lists me as having 3 prints and I actually have 6 prints. Make sense? No? Yes?

TGIF!!!

skaw profile pic Staff

sorry about all the dotted lines, they are about to go away :) as for the shop nav, it's currently being a/b tested with and without the images.

I still can't score more than a few subs without getting stuck

The site is still mind-bendingly slow, to the point that I give up trying to load certain pages.
