Shapeways Site Update for April 7th, 2011 [message #25774] Thu, 07 April 2011 15:51 UTC Go to next message
Anonymous Coward
A few changes to the site were made today:

- Issues with multiple URLs referring to the same page have been fixed, so shpws.me links should work better, as should Facebook likes and shares.
- You can now upload profile avatars again.
- Removed all references to VAT for Americans, since they don't pay it.
- Fixed some issues with Twitter login which sped up the site a little.
- After you log in, you will now be returned to the page you were on, rather than sometimes being redirected elsewhere.
- API users can now be configured by us to not need to approve the Terms & Conditions for each model they upload through the API. If you are an API user and you want to use this feature, send an email to service@shapeways.com.
- Fixed a few miscellaneous graphical glitches.

Hey admin_dan

When hitting the Like button i get the Gold material picture on facebook.. instead of a picture of the model itself - meaning it probably attracts less traffic from Facebook to a model's page.

yep, I reported that problem too. When we share models, the image used doesn't show up as the image of our model.

Hi guys, thanks for mentioning it. We know. Currently we are working hard in balancing new features vs fixing these things. It *is* on the list to fix shortly. Pete
