Hey, hey it’s Friday!
Not that it matters to our hard working development team as they will be working right through it to continue to optimize and improve the new system.
I want to reiterate that we are getting all your blog comments, survey responses and Help system inquiries. Every single one of them is being considered and added to the optimization list.
On that note, Monday they will be putting out a new release that will have many of the buggy issues cleaned-up. They will continue to deploy new releases each week for a short period during this initial release phase.
Some of the little bug-a-boo issues most recently fixed are:
> Delete was not fully delete files, this is now fixed and files fully deleted
> The above problem caused problems with duplicate photos when they delete, then re-upload, this is fixed so that the duplicate error only shows if you can see the photo in your DropShots site.
> Changing dates should work now. Old files can be fixed by deleting the moved red X thumbnails. Then re-uploading.
Old videos in the new player – because your older videos are now playing in a larger player size the pixels are more noticeable as we talked about before. We are looking into be able to have your older videos play at the old player size so they will look as they did. We are getting to that as soon as possible, but not sure exactly when.
Some have commented that they would like to see the calendar function (on the left navigation) drill down to not only year and month, but also to the week and day. Day won’t be necessary as you will be able to do that with the search feature when released, but the week, or at least week 1, 2, 3, 4, is a good idea and on our list.
Blog functions – yes, we will be adding the ability to post a day’s worth (or more) of photos into your blog with an html embed code. Give us some time to incorporate that into our One-Click Post to Blog utility.
Smily icons in comments – yes, will be added back shortly
Keep checking back to this blog as it is our way to keep you informed on all progress. As always the Help system is the best way to commuicate a problem so we have your contact info, user address and ticket tracking.
Have a fabulous weekend!
