Wayback and devWatch Channel for Subscribers!

Within the next few days, we will be adding two more features to the subscribers package!

The awesome Wayback feature and a custom devWatch Channel for the Customize option on the front page!

Way Back

Way Back is the new subscriber feature talked about around when we were developing version 5, and in a nutshell it is a browse option that does basically what its name implies. You can choose a category like Portraits and choose to browse all the portraits from January 12th 2004 or jump over to Wallpapers and look for what was submitted for all of June 2003!

deviantWatch Channel

Now for subscribers, in addition to being able to customize 20 channels on the main page, you can now choose to make one of them be your deviantWatch. That's right, make one of them into your deviantWatch, and every time you go to the main page you can see the newest art from all the deviants you watch right there along with all your other favorite modes of viewing!

Does Wayback permit you to see the deleted deviations?

Right, okay. Now how do you reverse an 'accidental' front page addition? Liiiike... say I had a 'friend'... :paranoid: And that 'friend' added the wrong thing to the front page cause that 'friend' wasn't quite sure how this front page feature worked... :cough:

Is there a way to delete a category?

Heeeeelp... er... my 'friend', that is. :aww:

What is the word on the gallery issues? It's currently listed as fixed in the status update but seems like a lot of people are still experiencing a lot of problems.

This is great but I think the way back feature should be a core way to view/explore artwork without having to subscribe..

Nevertheless... :)

The deviantWATCH idea sounds fantasic, I'm not so sure about making the way back sub only, it seems a bit unfair on those who are avid browsers but cannot afford a subscription.

I think the way back feature should be available to everyone, I'd like to think that people who dont have subscriptions can also find a way to search old deviations if they are after something in particular.

I like the channels :D they are fun

it would be neat to be able to limit the keyword search to your own gallery. I don't know if I've missed a trick but I can't see a method of doing this on dA.

ps nice new add-ons :)

:iconstarvingartist:

for search in general, or for the frontpage channels?
Reply
:iconphotosbykev:
Photosbykev Featured By Owner Dec 8, 2006  Hobbyist Photographer
Thanks for the response. I was looking for a search that only looked for keywords within my own gallery. I found the search option in the gallery located under my usericon, rather than the main Search Art option, but it seems to return all the gallery images regardless of what keyword I put in it?

:iconstarvingartist:
starvingartist Featured By Owner Dec 9, 2006  Professional Interface Designer
Hmm, sounds like a bug... the best alternative I could think of is typing the following into the Search Art form (replace "owl" with your own keyword):

by:KevLewis owl

Oh... just out of curiousity, why are you doing searches in your own gallery? Just keeping track of your art, or were you planning to do some editing to a specific few? =)

Photosbykev Featured By Owner Dec 10, 2006  Hobbyist Photographer
Primarily checking if I'd previously posted an image to avoid duplication :) Some of the gallery images seems to appear and disappear from time to time (which is a known 'feature' lol) I'll try the trick using by:Deviant . That could be useful for alot of things :) Thank you
