Talk: NEW: Feed
Started on by

Feed is now available for all users. Not everything is showing up yet (we need to optimize it for that) but the core features of the feed are now available for all of you.

It's easier to discover new photos, like, star and comment on them. Keep track of debuts and new pics in weekly themes. It's easier to find people and to follow and track your progress. And it's now all possible from one single page.

That's why made the Feed the homepage. Going to tookapic.com will take you straight to the Feed. But of course you can change that in your account settings - just switch Default Homepage to "Photos" and tookapic will work the old way.

Enjoy!

    +1 for making it an option

      nice new features. Thanks to them people can view more categories. Pic of a day? Superb!...but facebook-like feed is a "no no no no no no" for me. It's so time consuming to scroll and scroll and scroll and scroll...but I am just a facebook hater . Great that the feed is optional.

      • Phillip Flores

        Thanks! Very nice.

        • Daniel Zaleski

          I already like to go to the feed page even before you made it standard starting page and like it a lot, for all the reasons you made. Good job!

          • Marcin Wojtasik

            Superb features 😀

                "User X

                Added a photo to the journal"

                simply means "posted the daily photo", correct?

                Or is there some journal that I am missing out on?

                • Paweł Kadysz

                  Yes. Posted a daily photo. That might actually be better description of user action. We'll change it tomorrow. Thanks!

                  • ponzu

                    I kind of like "Added a photo to the journal". Now I know that what I am doing here is updating a journal.

                    I even wanted to ask the other day if we might get a blog feature where we could make posts about the photos we took. Then I realized that posting a daily photo with a description and comments is more or less a photoblog in and by itself. Photoblog or journal, either one works for me.

                    It is still one image a day, right? I am not missing anything? Even for ☆☆☆ users?

                  • Paweł Kadysz

                    Yes. This will probably never change. It's about one photo a day.

                Question: In the past, 'feed' consumed server resources and Tookapic's response slowed down. Is it no danger that performance problems will occur even if everyone sets feed as a start page now?

                • Urszula Stachowicz

                  I just want to mention that I love the "star feature". I think it's my favourite. 😉 Not because we can get stars or even give, but because we have in one place all of this photos that stole our hearts. 😀

                  • Przemysław Buzdygan

                    Great! 😀 just wanted to remind about "issue with Feed" on IE, Edge browsers. @Paweł any news on this? Maybe someone else has experienced problems with disappearing sides of the Feed (on IE and Edge)?

                    • Przemysław Buzdygan

                      I was not sure how this should look like (Im using only Edge browser), so I assumed that main Feed without sides is all functionality that it brings to users... until I reached bottom of feed and it had to reload - then I saw that there is something more on sides of Feed - what quickly disappeared when Feed has refreshed new content...

                      • Paweł Kadysz

                        This is what we're working on right now.

                    • Jan Buchta

                      Previous layout was much more minimalistic and simply - it was really good in my opinion. I just like minimal design. But the new one is impessive as well. It's modern and functional. Well done.

                      • Agnieszka MW

                        At first I wasn't a big fan of the Feed, I preferred more clean, minimalistic view, but I must admit that such easy access to the photos' titles, descriptions and comments is a great thing.

                        • Paweł Kadysz

                          We've updated the feed. It's now much more functional.

                        • vera

                          Super! Better and better!

                          • Paweł Kadysz

                            We're testing different feed options. You can now sort your feed by popular photos (even if you don't follow someone), recent pics and debuts. More options coming soon.

                            We added this because we know a lot of you prefer the feed rather than photo grid (including me). It's now much easier to welcome new users to tookapic for example, since you can sort feed by debuts.

                              great news! now i can revert to feed as main view 😄

                              • zigzagwanderer

                                nice! But I'd be very happy if I could see on my feed what people who I follow have liked. Sometimes, it's a way easier to find interesting photo based on their taste than scrolling all the recent photos. 😉

                              • Ian Prince

                                Great to see the photos displaying without the borders 😀

                              • Ian Prince

                                The feed sort-order is another great tweak 😀

                                • Dominique

                                  I love the feed now, I like how I can view new photos, and it makes commenting a lot easier 😄

                                  • Paweł Kadysz

                                    Few more UI updates today. Now working on sorting by "recently finished" projects so it's easier to congratulate users who just completed their 365 as well as showing photos only from people who you're following (no debuts, no weekly themes).

                                    • vera

                                      That's great! I prefer it now much more! The little symbols on the left are so cute and clean! Bravo! Very good choice of feed. I'm espacially happy with the finishers, that's really great to see it! Many thanks!

                                      • Magda Ko

                                        Great improvment, the only thing I miss ( using mobile version) is acces to galleries. Now there is no direct link from feed and from top menu I can't Enter it. What do You think about adding in feed also new featuring photo as well photo of the day. On the phone You cant see it and can be overlooked by someone.
