In this week's change log, we've updated literature pages — a popular request from the community — as well as a handful of bug fixes and improvements. Stay tuned for more, and keep the bug reports and feature requests coming!
Cosmic transformation

Improved Literature Deviation Page Design

Another popular request from the community was to improve the design of literature deviation pages and put the actual writing front and center. Thanks to @battlefairies, @jcoolarts, @thebigeasy66, @queen-kitty, and the many others who shared their feedback on literature!

Change Log

  • Ability to submit a Journal to a Group has been added! Click the “New Journal” button on a Group’s Journal tab to submit directly to that Group.
  • You can now edit older literature deviations in Eclipse. (Thanks for pointing out, @dc-26 and @littlekhajiit!)
  • The Daily Deviation page now includes three days by default (instead of two), with a "show more" button at the bottom.
  • While using browse or search, your previously selected sort mode will be preserved when you switch back and forth between Status Updates, Polls, and Commissions.
  • After clicking a deviation from browse or search then clicking the back button, you'll now return to the correct position in the results rather than the beginning.
  • When a deviant gives you Points, the notifications dropdown would display "[deviant] gave you..." without including the amount of Points given.
  • Eclipse journals would be cut off on smaller screens on the old site.
  • Clicking “View Log” on a Group admin notification would link to an error page.
  • On Feedback, the timestamp on comments and replies now links to the comment’s permalink page so you can see the full context of a conversation.
  • When italicizing, bolding, or underlining a heading, the headline would break onto multiple lines
  • Timestamps on Feedback notifications are now clearer. (A notification from 3 months ago now displays as the actual date rather than “3m” which could also be confused as 3 minutes ago.)
  • Daily Deviations page now includes a “Back to Top” button.
  • The account reactivation page (restoring your account after deactivating it) has been moved to Settings rather than your profile page. This fixes an issue were deviants would need to switch back to the old site to reactivate if they deactivated while in Eclipse. This change is now live on the old site as well.
  • Deviation descriptions that were made from the old site now properly preserve formatting on Eclipse.
  • Fixed issue where mature content would be visible in Polls, Status Updates, Drafts and a few other places, even if your mature content filter was on.
  • Fixed issues where font sizes would sometimes be smaller in some comments.

So let's start off: How was your day today?
In this week's change log, we have a small handful of bug fixes and improvements as we continue with the larger features that are in development. Stay tuned for more, and keep the bug reports and feature requests coming!

Change Log

  • After editing a comment, the new comment would not display until you refresh the page. (Reported by @reishdraws!)
  • Improved the display of official DeviantArt contest and campaign announcements by making these journals fill the width of the screen.
  • Journals that were created from the old site that have skins now stretch to fill 70% width of the screen in Eclipse, improving their display on larger screens.
  • When submitting or editing Journal and Literature, longer titles now break onto multiple lines rather than being on a single line and cut off.
  • After accepting a commission, the confirmation notification now includes a link to easily access your earnings.
  • Fixed issue where the right column of profiles would disappear on Firefox browsers at a certain browser size (Reported by @clcanadyarts and @wolflich)
  • Improved the design of comments that have been hidden or flagged as spam.

New Profile URLs

Wed Jun 27, 2018, 11:36 AM by danlev:icondanlev:
DeviantArt is constantly evaluating better ways to serve our community, from new features to smaller updates and bug fixes. Today, we're making a change to the format of profile URLs that will have a positive impact moving forward. In order to better serve you, we’re changing profile URLs from username.deviantart.com to deviantart.com/username


Don't worry, your old URLs will still work, and you can continue to use them. Your old links/URLs will always redirect to your new ones.

We know a lot of deviants are attached to their URLs, so the decision to make this change was not done lightly. Part of the decision-making process involved surveying active deviants, and we discovered the overall sentiment was fairly neutral. Most people did not strongly prefer one or the other — as long as old URLs redirected. But, most importantly, we believe this change will be beneficial for you.

Why Changing URLs Is for the Better

  • The new URLs will likely increase your traffic: Based on Search Engine Optimization (SEO) experts we’ve consulted with and also other sites that have made the switch, moving away from subdomains is likely to increase overall site traffic from search engines—this means more traffic to your Profiles and deviations.

  • Subdomains cause many technical challenges, inhibiting site improvement and performance. Browsers treat subdomains like different, individual sites for security reasons and, because of this, more and more website functionality is being limited to working with a single domain. Working around these restrictions makes building new features and maintaining old ones complicated, increasing the time it takes our engineers to complete projects. It also creates “buggy” circumstances while navigating the site. For example, you might have noticed that it sometimes shows the wrong artist’s name in the URL when using the “next” and “previous” buttons while browsing artwork in someone’s galleries — this is a technical limitation that is imposed by browsers for security reasons and was not possible to work around until now.

More Updates To Come!

This is a small update ahead of some major improvements we'll be making to profile and other areas of the site. You'll be hearing more in the coming months!

  1. What improvements to DeviantArt profiles would you like to see?
  2. Which part of your profile are you most proud of?
