Clone anything

You can now alt+click+drag any image that you’ve already pulled down to immediately clone it.

Let’s give this whole screen casting thing a try while we’re at it:

Bugfix: Pretty URLs

June 30th, 2010 No comments

When you save a page, ditzie attempts to convert a numeric reference to an image set into “pretty” format. Unfortunately, If you were using a non-top-level set, this would result in a “page not found” error when saving.

For example, you load up, which takes you to the D&D maps folder (Beta >> dnd >> maps, if you were to navigate there via the gallery). You position a few items and hit return to save. Instead of redirecting you to, you get sent to, which turns into a 404 (file not found) error.

This is a bug.

Err… was a bug. It’s fixed now.

ditzie != Spammer…

June 16th, 2010 No comments

So, it has come to my attention that a lot of newly registered accounts (I’m talking about the Beta Gallery here) are not being activated. Since ditzie uses the fairly typical “activate by email” method (you register, we email you a link, and you click it to activate your account), my guess is that these registration emails are not being received. Since I have confirmed numerous times that ditzie is actually sending them, I believe that most of our registration emails are being sent to your spam folder.

This kinda makes sense. See, is not a high volume mailer and hasn’t yet earned itself a good reputation. We certainly don’t send spam (we hate spam, and in fact, we don’t send anything except for activation emails), but the major email providers (AOL, Gmail, MSN, Yahoo) probably haven’t picked up on the fact that our link-containing form-based email is legit.

So, if you happen to see that a registration mail from ditzie make its way into your spam folder, can you try flagging it as not-spam? Based on our provider, placing the mail into the Inbox, removing the spam label, or clicking a “not spam” button will send the mail provider a signal that the message is not junk mail. The more people who do this, the better reputation ditzie builds as being a good sender, and the sooner this problem goes away.
