In the interest of both transparency and allowing everyone to know what's going on with the site, we're introducing this thread to provide more detailed, informative information about updates to the website's code. While we've had the changelog page for years, the notes on there are usually too concise and don't make a lot of sense unless you can see the code changes that they were attached to.

This thread will mostly list updates that impact the usability and performance of Derpibooru. We generally will not be posting updates regarding changes that won't have any noticeable effect on how the site works (such as correcting minor typos, updating mod tools, etc). If you'd like to keep up to date, simply subscribe to this thread, or just keep checking back regularly.

If you would like to discuss any changes that are mentioned in this thread, suggest a new feature or addition to Derpibooru, or report a bug you found, please see the Feature Suggestion and Bug Reporting threads. Note that if you found a bug which you believe to be a security issue, please send a PM to a site developer instead.

Finally, please note that sometimes changes may be announced in this thread before they are actually implemented on the site. This is simply because of our deployment workflow, just be patient as most changes are deployed within 24 hours.

And to start things off, a few notes from the past few days:

November 26th, 2016
* The list of people who have favorited an image has been moved from the bottom of the page to a tab in the "metabox" below an image's tags and source. This was done for performance and aesthetic reasons. (DoublePipe)

November 27th, 2016
* Tags are now sorted based on category, displaying the most important information first in the tags list. (DragonWraith)
* The "sharing" tab in an image's metabox now has "copy to clipboard" links next to each textbox. (DoublePipe)

November 28th, 2016
* Corrected an entry in the FAQ regarding tag aliases and implications that was not linking to the correct page. (Joey)
* Fixed a bug where a viewing the details page for a user link would not render the URL link incorrectly. (Joey)

We've rolled out a number of internal processing changes. Things like tagging and uploading new images may get a bit bumpy. As usual, refer to the Bug reporting thread if you notice anything weird.

Also, an issue that prevented certain JPEG images from being rendered should be now resolved. If you find an upload older than a day with "Just a moment" message instead of the picture, report it.

The ability to show all comments on a single page has been removed due to the negative impact longer conversations were having on server performance. Currently you can display a maximum of 100 comments per page by going to your content settings page and clicking the "Display" tab.

byte[] has added the ability to search through your site's interactions using the "my:" operator in the search bar. This adds the following self-explanatory search terms:

my:upvotes
my:faves
my:downvotes
my:uploads
my:watched

This will allow you to narrow the scope of your searches. For example, if you wanted to search for pictures of Sunset Shimmer that you favorited, you can do a search for sunset shimmer, my:faves. Likewise, if you wanted to search your watched tags for safe-rated images, you could search for safe, my:watched

There were a few minor, internal changes to the site's search. These changes do not affect how the search operates at all, but if your browser remembers/suggests previous searches, these changes may have the side effect of causing your browser to "forgotten" previous ones.

Images that are hidden by your filter will no longer show at all when viewing the overview/search results page of the commissions directory. Previously, they would show as spoilered images.

Please note, however, that when viewing an individual commissions listing, they will still show as spoilered images.

Tor and NoScript users should now be able to browse images with scripts disabled (though they won't be able to do much else).

Not a Llama - Happy April Fools Day!

Our notifications code has been updated! If your browser behaves, you should see the notification ticker at the top of the page stay in sync across all your tabs and windows, and change everywhere as soon as you load a new page.

This should be of help to all of you who have ever switched between tabs and clicked the Notifications button only to find yourselves staring at an empty page.

User profiles now show statistics about forum posts, including the post count and a ninety day graph, similar to other statistics on the page.

However, due to the fact that we were not recording statistics on daily post counts prior, this graph will show no activity prior to the deploy. Instead, it will just populate moving forward, and will be complete in ninety days from now. This is expected behavior.

Because a few people asked, the recent reports page shows all reports you've submitted, and now just has a pagination menu at the top.

Also, apologies for the lull in site development recently. Life's kinda affecting all of the site's active devs at the moment.

Fixed an issue where in certain conditions, certain livestreams listed on our streaming directory would not show a title.

Also added a "default" icon for streams that do not have an icon set. It may look familiar to people who've been using the site for a long while.
