  • Updated 10 months ago
Today we released a major platform update that should greatly improve the stability of the site. We have been experiencing numerous issues due to our dependency on certain components of the Google Cloud platform. This dependencies have been removed.

We also made the Pixoto App available again in the App Store. We plan on releasing a new version of the App within the next month as well as an Android version.

Facebook API was updated to allow submission of Facebook photos. This stopped working a few days ago.

Instagram API was updated to allow submission of Instagram photos. (This is pending an app approval request)

Fixed cart issue where users were submitting accidentally with the enter key.

Submit page category selection now in alphabetical order.

Monthly awards went out yesterday for the month of September.

Provided site stability remains good, we will resume the long over due annual awards beginning Thursday, Nov 1.

Hi Scott. Small steps forward. Good to see.
Another suggestion: the security certificate.
Both Chrome and Facebook complain about the site not being secure..

Hello Ad, thanks for the feedback.  I am not seeing that? Would you mind pasting a screenshot?  Is it due to mixed content? I actually did a lot of work fixing that across most of the site in the last release.

It's in Dutch, "Niet beveiligd" means Not Secure
