Here is a place for our announcements to sit their butts.
Upcoming update - next shops phase
The next phase of the page shop items is almost complete, with this update it will allow you to add customisations form to your shop items which will allow you to add a wide range of customisations including pricing and examples.
With these changes to shop items it also brings the first part of purchasing, that allows you to see orders for items and your own purchases. As this is a big step towards the final commission process, we would appreciate all the feedback.
Again thank you everyone for your support through this.
Personal note, updates may slow down over the next few months as i'm in the process of purchasing and moving house, so yehhh.

Start to Page Shops and Other Little Bits
The first phase of page shops has been completed and is awaiting your use and feedback.
To get started create a page with the type "shop", if you already have a page for your art and would like it converting to a shop please contact Bun Fluffpaws. From your shop page you can manage it and add/edit your shop items. There is a note on the shop manage section about upcoming updates and whats coming for page shops, this note will also be included below. Please try out page shops and give us feedback as we would love to improve this section of the site to expand into all purchasing of items at a later date. Also dont hesitate to let others know about the shops.
Page shop todo:
Basic listing of shop items
Basic searching of shop items
Currency independent listing/searching of shop items
- Customisations of a item that can modify the item price depending on the chosen customisations
- Guided order process through (pendingAcceptance, awaitingPayment, workInProgress, pendingSignoff, finalised) with the following failure states (failedBySeller, failedByCustomer, failedByFuriffic, failedMutually)
- Order queue / eta till new orders can be completed
- Page reviews optionally linked to a order/item and shown on the item
View tracking updated
The view tracking has also had a updated to go along with page shop items. Due to this update Furiffic internally tracks traffic/interactions across all pages and can quickly collect data about this. Because of this view tracking is now available for most user content as a collective total, and pages will soon have these stats listed for the page too.
You may also notice a change in popularity as media items popularity is based off a score of views over the past week and the further away from now each view will count as diminishing returns. Popularity will eventually be updated to take into account a number of other stats.
Other little nibbles
- Global Furiffic stats are available for views, media, journals and characters and can be located here - https://www.furiffic.com/_/statistics
- There may of been a slight internal updated to allow for a higher emoji range which is a step towards stickers, there is currently about 1,200 emojis listed internally but i'm not going to go into how to use them too much as they will be apart of the editor at a later date ([emoji=people=dancers ])
- A load of other little changes have been done, for a full list of changes click here - https://www.furiffic.com/~Furiffic-Update-log.47/posts/209
