A few days ago, I wrote a blog post mentioning our web push notification registrations were broken because web browsers changed the way they handle it. I just wanted to briefly tell you it's fixed now, and should work as expected 🎉 🙂. It now seems everything that should work works, and I can...

Just a quick update for you guys so you know we're still here doing our best to move BraceletBook forwards! There's been a couple minor things we've been working on for the last few weeks, mostly under the hood, improving performance in various sections of the site, cleaning up the...

I know that's been a feature a LOT of you have requested over the time, and it was pretty high in out to-do list because of that. We're now showing 11 similar patterns instead of 6 on pattern detail pages! 🎉 If you think we should be displaying even more similar patterns, please write me...

Today I got into another couple of to-dos we had planned for the website. They're all connected with a page that is being viewed the most on BraceletBook - the home page. Most of the tasks were actually suggestions from you, our users. Hottest patterns algorithm The hottest patterns...

For the last couple of days, we were working on updating the layout of the whole site for bigger displays. We found out that using all the space available on large screens is not the best idea. The text then becomes unreadable because of the long lines, and although having a lot of content...

Just a quick update for you guys. We were receiving a lot of similar questions in the forums, and so we together with our new moderators came to a conclusion we should list all of those questions somewhere so that we have them all in one place. We already had an FAQ section, but not many of you...

We're really excited we can now officially announce our collaboration with MashaKnots 🎉! We've joined forces, and have a lot of things planned for you guys 🙂. For the beginning, we've started with a tutorial video on how to read normal patterns, which you can find when you...

It's finally here! The big update we were working on for so long is finally finished and deployed! Some of you might have already noticed, but I still wanted to write this blog post to explain it everything in more detail 🙂. We've been having some issues with our review process for some...

Just a quick update for you guys due to the lack of time we currently have 🙂. We're working on a huge update to our admin section, which will make the review process a LOT better! It consists of 2 pretty big changes we have to make. The first one is done now and has just been published, and...

We've been seeing some of you had problems with duplicate posts being made, when only 1 was intended. It was happening in multiple places on the website, e.g. chat, comments, forum, and it shouldn't happen any more, because it is now fixed 🙂. This was just a quick update, because...

In the last few weeks, we started receiving a huge amount of patterns, photos, comments and forum posts in our admin section, so we started thinking about how we could optimise the reviewal process. The first and a very important thing was having pre-filled messages for some of the sections...

Just a quick update for those who were waiting for this to happen 🙂, and I know a lot of you were waiting 🙂. Loves finally behave just like to-dos, which means there is a separate section for browsing your and other users' loves, and just like to-dos, they are also displayed in your user...

Some (a pretty long) time ago, we made a decision to prefer photos that are rotated the same as their related patterns are. We were even declining some which weren't submitted that way. In one of the last blog posts, I mentioned we added a possibility for admins to rotate your photos in the...

When we were thinking about implementing the 'Add a Variation' button to the site for the first time, a lot of questions came to our minds. One of the biggest being if some users won't abuse it for creating duplicate patterns. To explain, a variation is basically a pattern with the...

We just wanted to let you all know about a huge achievement we've made this summer. From the beginning of the holidays, we're seeing a HUGE spike in user activity and traffic on the site, and we're really happy about it! 🙂 We already broke almost all records we previously had...

We were receiving a lot of incorrectly rotated photos in the admin section, and the percentage was only rising as the time passed, so Johny recently asked me to implement an option for him to rotate the images directly in the admin section before accepting them. That was actually a great idea, so...

For the last 2 weeks, we were tweaking the create section so it performs a bit faster 😎. We also found one minor issue which caused the edit pattern page to display wrong values when there were some errors in the form. The new update is now deployed and ready for you to try it out 😉.

Today we were updating some important packages on our server, so you may have noticed a very short downtime (~3min). This was just a regular maintenance which we had to perform so that our server is up to date with all the latest security patches 🙂. The system is now up and running, and we're...

For the last couple of weeks we were working on integrating social sites to BraceletBook, which means that we can now post to Facebook, Twitter and Pinterest directly from the website. Instagram will be added later, because the official support for adding posts is not yet publicly released. We...

It took us a while to implement, as the standards are pretty new, and some of them don't yet have the specifications completed, but now you're able to subscribe to web push notifications on your Mac, PC, and android devices 😍. Previously, this functionality was only available to our...

It's finally here! After all the waiting, the new site is now launched, and is waiting for you to try it out! It's been a while since we first announced that we're working on a completely new site with a lot of new features, and a new design. It wasn't easy, The new site is...

Not sure if you've noticed somewhere (maybe a long time ago), but we're working hard on finishing a completely new website with a LOT of new features, new design, and improvements, some of which are also from your requests 🙂 We'll also be releasing an updated iOS app with some minor...

We’ve released a new update for the iOS app containing fixes which may have affected some users. You will no longer see a no internet connection error, and we also fixed some issues with the layout present in iOS 11. The new version also contains support for the iPhone X and some performance...

Recently, we had some problems with e-mails on the site, but it's now resolved. It affected some sections of the site like the forgotten password for example.

We've added a new thread to the forum, grouping all the challenges there so it will be easier for you to participate! 🙂

Found out push notifications weren't working for some time, so I looked into it and it should be fixed for now 🙂
