Welcome to WallpaperUP 2.0

I've been working on it for about a year now, and the time has finally come to show you all the result.

The following is a list of the main changes:

  • As you certainly already noticed the design has been completely renewed:
    • We switched to a mainly light design.
    • The entire website is so much better when viewed from a mobile device or on a small screen in general.
    • Usability in general has been improved.
  • The website is now based on an entire new framework, that I wrote for it specifically, called Svelto (Its website is under construction at the moment of writing).
  • Wallpapers' pages have been redesigned:
    • It's now possible to add a description to them if you like, it could also be used for adding some credits.
    • A license can be specified, it could be any of the Creative Commons licenses available or even a Public Domain license. This should make the website better for people searching for pictures to use in their projects, and for authors trying to sell their work.
    • Messages can be sent into wallpapers' pages. This has been a long time requested feature and now we have it. Sometimes its cool to be able to send an appreciation message, but it will be useful for contacting the uploader as well.
  • The uploader has been rewritten from scratch:
    • It supports adding a license and a description, of course.
    • It comes with a great multi-editor, so that for instance you can change the category of multiple wallpapers at once.
  • Users-related pages have been redesigned:
    • Each user can now upload a cover picture, personalizing even further their profile.
    • We now use circular avatars across the entire website, make sure yours looks great in this format.
  • The search engine is completely new:
    • It's much more usable on mobile.
    • It's now possible to search by license and aspect ratio as well.
    • An advanced syntax is available, take a look at the related page.
    • It's faster, up to 5 times faster in some cases.

Other minor changes:

  • The tags editor has been improved, improving support for multi-words tags.
  • Administrators, moderators and trusted members have a special badge in their profile, indicating their special status.
  • You can have private collections of favorites that we'll only be visible to you. Current collections can be made private as well.
  • Everywhere you can write a message you can format it using markdown, if you don't know it, take a look at this brief documentation.
  • Many many more smaller things...

Some features have been removed for various reasons:

  • Support for infinite scrolling pages is no longer available, it was used by very few people. It may still be reimplemented in the future.
  • Support for categories filters have been removed, it wasn't very popular and probably not even very useful. It may be added again in the future.
  • Emoticons are no longer supported. We'll have support for the full emoji spectrum in the future, so spending time on a dead feature didn't seem necessary to me.
  • It's no longer possible to rate wallpapers. In the future it will be possible to express a like or a dislike, so, similarly as what as been done for emoticons, maintaining this feature seemed unnecessary.

What about the future?

A maybe even bigger change is that now the code is so much more maintainable, adding a new feature or fixing a bug will be much simpler than in the past, so expect periodic changes and new features. Don't forget to use the forum whenever you want to suggest something or you want to report a bug.

Do you like the new version of the website?

There incorporate been loads of gamers in the direction of occur during the Texas Tech Soccer computer software that we will recall for several a long time towards appear. Names including Patrick Mahomes, Zach Thomas, Wes Welker and Danny Amendola all ring a bell Although on your own imagine of exceptional avid gamers that arrived for the duration of Lubbock. I would argue that no reputation will provide back again as a great number of Great reminiscences as a person via the status of Michael Crabtree. While he basically performed 2 decades for Tech, the have an affect on that he experienced upon the soccer staff and upon the landscape of higher education soccer is simple. This range is basically an acknowledgement of how seriously exclusive individuals pair a long time ended up.This a long time record appears to be like in the direction of be Extremely stacked with names such as Reggie Bush, Kellen Moore, Andrew Luck and his preceding quarterback Graham Harrell producing the ballot for the very first year this calendar year as effectively. There is a lot of ability upon this record that is unbelievably perfectly worthy of getting more in the direction of these a prestigious local community of names, yet Michael Crabtree really should stand out with fairly couple of as distinct alternate options towards be extra.Coming versus a higher education with loads of obvious ability at the recipient posture, none of people names arrive conclude towards how excellent Crabtree was inside college or university.Higher education Soccer is above periods that we will closing a existence, and what greater minute do we consist of in the direction of bear in mind as Texas Tech Soccer enthusiasts than the capture from Texas. Crabtree electricity towards capture the ball, crack a handle immediately upon the sideline and nevertheless afford to pay for toward track down his route into the conclude zone towards gain the video game is a person of the major performs within College or university Soccer historical past. That knocked Texas out of the nationwide name match, and even observed Tech remain at range 2 within the AP scores for 3 immediately months. Crabtree was way too the initial participant in the direction of at any time earn the Biletnikoff Award as the nations around the world most straightforward large recipient two times inside of a vocation. His basically 2 yrs of faculty soccer observed him dominate at a stage that we consist of not observed Really frequently, with him much too currently being a unanimous All-American recipient both equally of those people decades as nicely. That 2008 year way too observed him full 5th inside of Heisman voting.His 134 catches throughout his remarkable freshman period is however tied for 8th all-year in just a solitary time. No make a difference how complicated groups tried using they basically couldn include Crabtree even every time they understood he was having the ball. Experienced he stayed a lot more than particularly 2 seasons, he woulde mounted lots of documents and been an complete no brainer for this record. Crabtree must absolutely be voted in the direction of this a long time training course within the Faculty Soccer Corridor of Fame. Being aware of him at present for how dominant he was would harmless his point as just one of the most significant in direction of at any time engage in the vast recipient issue at the collegiate stage.
