Site Update
This is site bugs fixes and updates page that was post on March 7th, 2013.



A sidebar has been added to Forum pages! On the main forum page, the sidebar displays recently popular threads, and on specific forum pages, the sidebar collects and displays recently popular forum threads from that forum. 

On individual threads, the sidebar includes Share buttons, so you can easily share a Forum thread that interests you. In addition, it includes a button that lets the creator of a thread close that thread on their own, which has been a frequently requested feature.

  • In an effort to consolidate features, the Shoutbox has been removed from the Chat page after over ten years on deviantART.
