COGS #2 by Z-GrimV
We are happy to announce the release of an improved API. After many years the api had become a little confusing and was not keeping up with changes to its backend systems. We therefore decided to redesign parts and fix some of the confusing naming and behaviour.

These changes are versioned so if you are using version prior to 20150416 there will be no change in behaviour, we plan to support the old api for around a year.

Summary of Changes

The folderid and stashid fields have been replaced by stackid and itemid respectively, this change applies to all endpoints.

These endpoints were removed and their functionality is provided by newer ones

  • /stash/folder
  • /stash/media
  • /stash/metadata
  • /stash/move/file
  • /stash/move/folder

New endpoints to manage stacks

  • POST /stash/move/{stackid} - moves stacks
  • POST /stash/position/{stackid} - change the position of a stack within a parent stack
  • POST /stash/update/{stackid} - update stack details (title, description)
  • GET /stash/{stackid} - fetch stack details, returns stash_metadata object
  • GET /stash/{stackid}/contents - list stack contents, supports pagination

New endpoints to manage items

  • GET /stash/item/{itemid} - fetch an item, returns stash_metadata object
  • POST /stash/delete - delete an item by itemid

Stash Metadata object

  • Renamed fields folderid and stashid
  • Removed is_folder
  • Replaced keywords with tags

Any problems can be reported on the GitHub Issue Tracker.

Are there plans to update the site to make it scale more flexible with the use of SVG and other such flexible elements?

Alright,I was browsing through my favorites four days ago when I started getting website error messages saying the page I was looking for no longer existed.But when I flipped back a page,everything was normal!It would only do this every time I tried opening a new page.However,that was the least of my worries as I discovered that the site had logged me out of my account without warning!Now it won't let me sign back in no matter how many times I've tried!Now I've had to create this second account just to get this message across.Help please?!
guys, can you please help me. i've been trying for a couple of weeks to get the following fixed:

i recently deleted one of my da folders, however, it didn't delete all the content of the folder.

the help desk fobbed me off saying they won't sort this out their end, and that it's up to me to delete the individual content, but i can't do that as the folder is no longer visible or accessible.

i only found out my "deleted" content was still on da's servers when i was searching google.

i can provide links if it would help you?

i would appreciate any help you can give me.

When you delete a folder that has items which are not present in any other folder, those deviations will be removed from the "Featured" section of your gallery, but will still be available through the "All" section. These can be found on the top left of your gallery page, I'll link your All section here for you convenience:…

From here you're on your own with deleting the specific deviations, as I believe deleted folders' contents cannot be retrieved, but if you remeber what you wanted to delete then you'll find it there.
