Site Update
This is site bug fixes and updates page that was posted on August 2nd, 2013.



As part of an initiative to make deviantART more user-friendly and clearer to new users, tabs on the Profile Page have received a visual and functional uplift! The tabs on Profile Pages (Gallery, Prints, Favourites, and Journal) have been visually improved for consistency, cleanliness, and a more modern appearance. Navigation elements have been moved to the left column of the page, and the placement of major elements of each tab have been aligned so that the transition from one tab of one's Profile to another is more smooth, natural, and clean. / SubmitEdit

  • When viewing stacks, the drop zones to move thumbnails is much bigger than before, for easier dragging and dropping.
  • When dragging a thumbnail to the beginning or the end of a stack or your main area, the drop zone is now much bigger than before, for easier item placement.

  • Creating a new Group Gallery Folder and immediately navigating to that folder would result in an error.
  • Double clicking on the 'Purchase' button on the Premium Content modal would result in a double purchase.
  • The Help Desk's contact form would not notify a deviant if they were using an unsupported browser.

  • The .ASL filetype could not be uploaded to the Photoshop Actions category.
  • There were some display issues with Critiques in the Message Center.
  • On certain pages around the site, middle-clicking on a thumbnail would open the deviation in the same tab, rather than in a new one.
  • Previewing replies to several comments in the Message Center and then replying to one would trigger a comment submission error.

  • For a brief period, some Profile Pages containing the Critique widget were broken.
