New Features

  • Translation Glossary
    • The Translation Glossary allows you to have machine-translated content on your site, augmented by a dictionary file you make, which defines the translation for specific words and phrases for individual languages.
    • This feature alone is already saving our customers millions of dollars in translation fees.
    • Contact us today to learn more!
  • Finished many months of backend framework improvements which will allow for human-translated versions of a site's interface. As seen when logged into iFixit, the French language is now in Beta.
  • Greatly improved the error messages that our API provides.
  • The titles of guide comments now link back to the step of the guide that the comment was referencing.
  • Category and guide revision history entries now show which user accepted the revision.
  • Category and guide revision history entries now link back to the corresponding Category or Guide.
  • While not completely finished, we've made enormous progress on the new Media Manager. It is now in its final stages of testing and touch-ups before being released. This Media Manager will allow us to begin many new image upload improvements that we've wanted to tackle for a while, such as auto-resizing of images, upscaling, letterboxing / pillboxing, or even auto-cropping.
  • Some screenshots:

  • The time at which any action on the site occurred is now live-updated.
    • If you're viewing a page such as /Answers, or your user Activity feed, you'll see times that events occurred live-update as you stay watching the page for a while.
    • If you hover over an older more general timestamp, such as 'May, 2011', you can see details on the exact time that the event occurred.
  • When creating a new guide, if the name of the category you came from is invalid, we now default to the first category in your list of categories.
  • Fixed a bug where creating a site with one plan could create a site with a different plan.
  • The link to the originating guide from a Guide revision history page is now correctly colored blue and styled like other links on the site.

  • In order to prevent against Clickjacking attacks, Dozuki sites are no longer allowed to be included via iFrame unless the source and destination are the same.
  • Implemented a 6 character minimum for password length.
  • Created a new rate limiting system for failed login attempts. The current limit is 10 per hour, but we're open to changing this if it's a problem.


  • Implemented a new caching tool which drastically increases server performance and improves page load speed on many pages.
  • Substantially improved reliability of our suite of automated tests. In addition to continually adding new tests, this helps improve the stability of the site.
  • Removed the tag list from the front page of /Answers, giving Answers a cleaner interface.
  • Removed the option for non-full width (2/3 width) view on guides. Guide view is cleaner in full-width view on any modern mobile device, as well as all desktops and laptops.
  • Made a number of badge names more generic, to more appropriately fit all sites.
  • Per customer request, reversed the order of the privilege options when inviting new users.
    • The default privilege when inviting a new user is now the lowest privilege (normal user), rather than Admin (the highest).
