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The folderid and stashid fields have been replaced by stackid and itemid respectively, this change applies to all endpoints.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

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.

I just want to code to make the groups better, but I'm not sure i want to be a full fledged "developer".

Hello, this group's icon is interesting. When I scroll, I see text behind it that is static, giving a picture of moving code. How did you do that? Is it you or just a glitch on my graphics card?

Wow, nice catch. This is an Easter egg added by the developers of the site. It's done through some CSS magic intentionally, it's not an issue with your GPU.
