Performance and Gallery Route Updates

The most massive update you will barley notice

Today we've released a very long worked on update to a very technical behind the scenes part of Photivo. What started out as we request to remove the "/g/" URL segment from customer galleries grew into a complete rewrite of the routing engine that drives Photivo. This is the part of the code that takes the URL from your browser and makes magical things appear on your screen.

So what is new??

  • Gallery URLs will now be the more direct "{studio-name}{gallery-slug}". You will not have to change or update any old links, the old URLs will forward to the new pattern

  • The updates will improve page load times even more. Mobile devices should expect to see the most improvements

Taking this project on now was not ideal, but will improve future changes and growth of the product.
