ITT: We discuss website fixes & updates

Here's a brief list of updates coming: Add comment "bumping" to images on the homepage. Add total comments on homepage when you hover a picture. Voting a shirt will no longer refresh the page. Load less images on the homepage, add "endless scrolling". M

    I would really dig a mobile setup that functioned like Tinder... (not that I've ever used that, I just read online... for research) When I'm sitting on the shitter at work I could pull it up and swipe yes, no, or indifferent for all the new shirts that ha

  • bravo 1 points 2 years ago

    This is a really good idea man. I agree.

  • doesitmakesound 1 points 2 years ago

    Keep in mind that Tinder is an app. We're far off from building apps. We'll make the website mobile-friendly and then focus on an app when this gets going. That said, it's a fantastic idea.

  • doesitmakesound 1 points 2 years ago

    I'll still bring it up though. He originally suggested doing a mobile-version m.shirtposts.com. Maybe we can work that into it.

  • SuperNotSupper 1 points 2 years ago

    I didn't realize my comment got cut off. I went on to say I realize that Tinder is an app and that this would likely need to be web based for now.

  • SuperNotSupper 1 points 2 years ago

    Forward thinking though it would be really cool to have a shirtpost app. I know it would keep me engaged on a daily basis. I surf reddit more on my phone on the shitter than I do on the computer.

  • doesitmakesound 1 points 2 years ago

    We'll definitely do an app in the future. Right now it's all about cultivating our community here and making a solid first version.

    1. Time zone is wrong, can't find an option to change it.
    2. Cant up/downvote from the shirt page itself (or if it does, the counter doesn't update)
    3. Instead of the "login/register" button taking you to the register form with a button that goes to the

  • Mechapope 1 points 2 years ago

    cont. login form, have it do the opposite. Make it go to a login form with a button that leads to register form.

    1. Mobile mockups don't really work. I uploaded a picture I took with my camera, but you can't move it, and the sliders don't actually move

  • Mechapope 1 points 2 years ago

    cont again.

    1. Make the "Create shirt" its own page rather than an overlay. Maybe not for desktop, but definitely for mobile.
    2. Line breaks in comments dont work. :c
    3. The comment box is larger than the area that allows you to click into the box

  • doesitmakesound 1 points 2 years ago

    1. Totally agree. I think I mentioned it but will need to again. I wanted it to be a popup instead but that might not be secure. 4. Mobile hasn't been optimized yet but DEFINITELY will! Slide work if you just press where you want it to go.

  • doesitmakesound 1 points 2 years ago

    1. a mobile create-a-shirt page is a really good idea and would fix a lot of compatibility issues. 7. comment formatting is coming and the maximum comment size is ridiculous and going away. 8. I noticed that too. It'll be on the next list.

  • doesitmakesound 1 points 2 years ago

    Thanks!

    1. Regional time zone will be added after initial fixes are live. 2. Upvoting from the page itself is on the list of fixes being done now.

  • doesitmakesound 1 points 2 years ago

    I noticed that the newest comments go on the top, but the newest replies go on the bottom. I'll need to think which way works best. Eventually we'll probably have comment voting.

  • SuperNotSupper 1 points 2 years ago

    It would be nice to see a "Total Comments" on the main page thumbnails in addition to the current up/down voats.

  • doesitmakesound 1 points 2 years ago

    Thats already on the list he's working on. Also, comments will 'bump' an image to the top of the homepage so you know which ones are active.

  • nickthekey 1 points 2 years ago

    Not having to reload the whole page when you upvote would be nice

  • doesitmakesound 1 points 2 years ago

    That's the biggest complaint and it's on his list already. I'd say it'll be fixed within a day.

  • bravo 1 points 2 years ago

    This one is already fixed. :)

  • doesitmakesound 1 points 2 years ago

    After these changes are in, I will focus on making the commenting better. Picture replies, create-a-mockup as a reply, user formatting. Anything else?

  • doesitmakesound 1 points 2 years ago

    Moar: Mockups: Fix the eye dropper, fix unresponsiveness and lag. Comment pages: Add edit & delete for users, remove reply limit, add Voat.co & imgur share button, add "next" and "back" so you can scroll through pics.

  • Haredeenee 1 points 2 years ago

    we need a "post to /r/shirtposts" button

  • doesitmakesound 1 points 2 years ago

    The reddit button on the left does that for you.

  • Haredeenee 1 points 2 years ago

    well im dumb.

  • nickthekey 1 points 2 years ago

    I second "add "next" and "back" so you can scroll through pics"

Filesize is too big
