We blog about the big stuff, but in the last year we’ve heard from some of our most dedicated fans that you miss hearing about the everyday fixes. And we agree that whether we’re working on things big or small, you should be up to speed on what we ship.
So, each month we’ll round up the short (or long, depending on how much coffee we’ve consumed) list of bug fixes, feature improvements and other miscellaneous changes that we’ve made. Keep an eye on the “Release Notes” tag and the “New Features” category if you’ve been keeping tabs on what we’re birthing into the Smuggiverse.
Hot Tip! Find those links in the sidebar at right.
Lately, We’ve Launched:
- New Bay Photo SKUs
True, we did already formally announce this but just in case you missed it, Portfolio and Business account pros can offer more great prints than ever before. Previously available prints and products also reflect some sweet price changes (overall lower). So if you haven’t already checked your Bay Photo Pricelists, it may be time for a refresh.
- Fresh SmugMug Marketing Pages
We refer to them as “marketing pages” in-house but most people know them as the place to read up on what SmugMug can do for you. So the next time your friends are shopping around for a place to keep their photos, link them here! You’ll can also get there from SmugMug.com.
- IE10 slideshow button fix
We were hearing that the Slideshow button wasn’t showing up for people viewing sites in IE10. We fixed this, so it appear in all four of our supported viewing styles.
- Faster search indexing
Image keywords should now be indexing quickly and become searchable much faster than before. Photos should be found in search results after a couple of hours – at the very most – after keywords and descriptions are applied. But you’ll probably find that it works much faster than that.
- Get a Link in Journal style
Some of you had trouble using Get a Link in Journal style. This feature should now load properly, as expected in all four supported viewing styles.
- ‘Like’ Button and Lightbox links
Similarly, the Facebook ‘Like’ button wasn’t sharing the lightbox link when clicked, which was super confusing especially if your gallery was set to Thumbnails view. Now your viewers will definitely know which of your photos was shared, so ‘Like’ away!
Stay tuned for more fixes and updates next month. As always, if you have any questions or feedback just talk to us! We may be pumping out other kinds of inspirational and educational posts on this blog, but we are (and always have been) listening to your ideas.
