Changes to FlyerTalk, November 15, 2017
Hi everyone,

We are excited to bring you new additional functionalities. Now uploading and viewing photos is faster and easier than ever with our new photo uploader and gallery pages. We’ve even made it easier to upload photos from your mobile phone! Below is a list of the changes taking place today on FlyerTalk.

***Please note that on the morning of November 15, 2017 the site will be down for approximately 1 hour, starting at 6:30am PT as we roll out these changes.***

If you have any questions or comments, please scan the Support forum to see if there is already a thread discussing that topic, in which case you can add your comment to the existing thread; if not, please start a new thread.

Let us know what you think!

Thanks all,

--The FT Team

Gallery Pages (New!)

We're upgrading the gallery page to show you more photos all at once. You can now also browse by new options such as “Trending,””Recent,” “Commented,””Popular,” and your own “Albums.” This will allow you to have a custom experience with the new Gallery.

On single photo pages you will see the photo you selected, but it's more than just that; you will also be able to discover related photos, comment, see trending pictures, and also see other photos in the same album.

Uploading photos to your Gallery Page

On the page with your albums and where you upload images, you can upload your photos in many ways:

1. Drag and drop photos directly onto the page
2. Upload your photo with a URL
3. Attach photos from your device

Photo Uploader (New!)

With the new uploader you can now upload your photos in more ways:

1. Drag and drop your photo (New!)
2. Select photos already uploaded to an album in the new gallery (New!)
3. Upload your photos with a URL (same as before)
4. Attach photos from your device (same as before)

Uploading from your mobile phone (New!)

You can now use your phone's camera to upload a photo immediately after it's taken.

Arranging your photos

Once your photos are uploaded, you will be able to drag them around to rearrange them in the album, tag, and delete your photos. You can also "lock" your photos, which will prevent them from showing up in the public FT gallery. If you want more FTers to be able to enjoy your photos, leave them unlocked.

Once the attachment process is completed, select the paperclip icon to show a dropdown menu with the option to paste your photos in-line within your post, making the user experience more efficient in adding and managing your photos from all device types.

User Interface Improvements

1. Faster access to your account and notification options

Now when you are logged in, you will always be able to access your account and notification options in the top right corner.

2. Faster access to Search options (searching threads, posts, and Advanced Search)

Now you will always be able to quickly search threads, posts, and access advanced search from the sticky menu in the top right corner next to the search field.

3. New sticky navigation header allows you to access tools no matter where you are on the page

Now the navigation header will follow you as you scroll down the page so you can access your options anytime without scrolling back up.

That's it for now! Stay tuned for upgrades to the mobile skin...
