New Gallery Layout

:iconpsychodemonfox:
PsychoDemonFox Featured By Owner Jan 10, 2017  Hobbyist General Artist
Not really a complaint so much as a question. The layout of my gallery/favorites page is suddenly one page going all the way down. When did this happen, and can I change it back to the old format?

...Has anybody mentioned this?
Step 1: Select 'Edit Page'.
Step 2: Drag folders to desired locations.
Step 3: Profit.

What I wouldn't give to go back to DeviantART's old format.

My gallery folders (both in "Favorites" and "Gallery") cannot be moved anymore.

I can't move and arrange any of my art or the art I Favorite as needed because I like to have all of the art placed in a specific order for each of their folders. I doubt DeviantART's staff will take action and actually do something about it. I'm SO disappointed!

Again, they fix the wrong things with DA.

This singular, long ass gallery is really annoying. It keeps elongating and refreshing. We can't even read the comments on the bottom of these pages because it just stretches and moves your view away from it. Everything was so organized and neat before. I didn't ask for this and I'd like the option to revert it back. The option to have it should ONLY be allowed if it's TOGGLED on.

Going to collect what some of the other users have suggested: Use the "Edit Page" feature and choose Paging. 

I still have to see this, but haven't experienced anything extreme like other users are saying below.

I don't mind the change of the layout, but has anybody else noticed that for some reason not all of the pictures in the folders are displayed? When I click on 'edit page' they are all there, but when I go back to the infinite scroll gallery, a lot are missing :| (Blank Stare)

I have the same problem, but also in my favorites and anyone else's gallery or favs,it will display around the twenty or so newest images and that's it,kind of makes me want to stop using DA.

I actually like the new layout, My gallery looks a lot cleaner and if you want to rearrange things, you can, there is an option for it at the top.

What I hate though is that rearranging your pictures, suddenly got a lot more infuriating. 

I cannot for the life of me, rearrange my drawing the way that I want, every time I set a certain order, 
it rearranges it a different way!!!

Makes me not even want to use DA anymore. :(


Programmers DO SOMETHING ABOUT THIS!!!!!

I used to be able to organize my art into my gallery folders, like take things out of folders and move them around as needed, but now this new layout is just fucking everything to hell. I'm not the only one with a complaint here. But why can't I remove a deviation from one of MY gallery folders if it doesn't need to be there?? I don't WANT any of my shit in my featured folder. What if one of my open adopts isn't open anymore?? Bring the old layout back or at the very fucking least make it so we can organize our galleries again.

Seeing what atrocities they've done to discriminate vertical pieces of art as compared to HUGE carpet-like length of horizontal pieces that now literally take up all the gallery space - oh, this is truly disgusting.
Tried manually juggling the order of images in the folders (+100 extra clicks to get to the edit page and into the normal editing mode) - heck, the horizontal images seem to get even HUGER and the verticals are being cut and shrunk. Not to say there's no info like favs and comments to be seen on vertical thumbs.
Oh, and the handy floating line with date & category of uploading is gone too :(
In short,
Happy Friday 13th, everyone :hmm:

PFFFFF Biased. Maybe back it up with some reason, then we'll talk. ;) Also if this is a tease or a troll, that is very ill-played and unprofessional of you. XP

Just saying. I mean, I read your dA ID and all, so I am aware that this is for-fun, but the basis of this whole rating thing is very... unclear and might unsettle those who don't check that sort of thing. Might stir up a more heated atmosphere if uncareful enough. I don't know. 

Needless to say, have a nice day, fellow deviant. And sorry to have disturbed in any way.

Edit: I Figure out how to do it. Just use "edit" on the site. The resolution still looks kind of strange in the new gallary however. Or they could at last remove the lining frames. I think they are the reason it looks worse.

I'm outraged, now we can't even organize them properly, ya can't put anything in Featured and in another folder at the same time. MOTHERFUCKERS!

And if people think this is first world problems, no big deal it's liveable, Old Shit is Oficially unaccessible on bad computers that now have to load everything above it. It'll take dozens of minutes to get to the bottom of my Faves list.

Imagine how this affects Long Time professional users. They're gonna have a hard time showing off their old works to new fans because of this.

Aside from the above mentioned complaints, I just dislike how you can't see what folders your picture is in anymore. Or other people's artworks. For example if I saw a random OC I was interested in, I just clicked on the folder the picture was in and could see more related artworks. Now I have to look through every folder to find whatever I wanna find. Folders kind of seem useless now.. 

Really weird they didn't even send a notification about it, you would expect that much from a "professional" website where million of users are paying for the service. 

Sigh, wouldn't really hate the new layout if they would have kept some of the old stuffs.

OHMYGOD REALLY? The function to see in which folder the art was in WAS THE MOST USEFUL. I can't believe it's not there anymore x____x What the fuck DA
And I thought it was annoying that these new thumbnails cut 20-80% off my deviations.

i mean, what's the point of cropping them? Isn't that the opposite of what DA has intended to do? To show more art?

The Gallery Search doesn't work anymore. It just throws out everything in their entire gallery and puts a 'few' items with the search word in the top spots. But it doesn't put ALL of the items with the keyword at the top, you have to scroll and hunt for the rest. VERY annoying.
