Fridgg has a brand new redesign!!!!!

Fridgg redesign

So as you may have guessed from the title… we just launched a new redesign for!!!

(Not the blog… yet. That’s coming soon, though.)

In the three years (!!!) since we launched Fridgg, we’ve been wanting to bring you a new, better design, as well as a bunch of new features. Finally, in the last few months, we got our act together, took a short break from client work, and made the redesign happen!

New Features

• New design! (Obviously.)

• Better profile pages!

New Fridgg profile pages

• Easier uploading!

• Emojis!

Emojis in comments

Tech Stuff

• We’ve moved the entire site off of PHP and are now using Node.js, React, SASS, and all the fun, buzzwordy technologies.

• New foundation to make it waaaaay easier for us to bring you new features that will be coming soon… like search! And maybe a few of you (okay, way more than a few) have mentioned you might like an app? All that and more, coming soon!

Let us know what you think! (…and, ahem, if you happen to find any bugs.)

We really hope you love it! ^_^

  1. Yay!!!

  2. I love the new design and think it looks so much better than the old one. The one thing that I’m having trouble with is commenting. I tried to post a comment yesterday, but wasn’t able to do so. With the old design there was a place where I could submit a comment, but I don’t see anything like that anymore. How can I leave comments if I wanted to? Other than that, the new design is really nice.

  3. Neeli – Thanks for your feedback! We do have a comment box for submitting comments on photos, however I have definitely noticed that it can be a little difficult to see and unintuitive to use. It’s on our list of things to fix ASAP, so thank you for bringing it to our attention!

  4. Hi Allison, thanks so much for responding. I have figured out how to post my comments, but now I am having a hard time submitting new pictures. I tried several times to submit a photo, but I wasn’t able to do so. I was left feeling disappointed. I don’t know why I can’t post a picture. When I submitted the photo, it didn’t show up, so I tried again, but gave up. Thanks again for responding and I hope that we can figure out what’s going on and why I can’t submit photos.

  5. Neeli – We’ve been having some issues with the uploader, but we finally found the root of the problem and just fixed it, so it should be working now. Try again, and please let me know if you have any other problems!

  6. Thanks Allison for all of your help. I was able to upload a picture today. You’re the best.

  7. […] I had a good reason for it! The last few months, Son and I have been working on a relaunch of Fridgg, with a brand-new design and whole new backend (using React and Node.js, for anyone who cares). The […]

  8. Thanks Allison to have included us in your list of favorites! I am really happy. I love Fridgg and the enthusiasm that you put in it. I am very pleased to upload our photos on your website.
