Boxedup Relaunch in Beta State

Well it’s taken a bit longer than anticipated, but as they say ‘good things come to those who wait’. We will be launching our new site very soon, with the beta site being rolled out over the next few weeks.

Please Note – Current Site Usage

We have to move (literally) millions of products, lists and users to the new system and sadly we will need to ‘lock’ the databases during this migration.

What this means is that anything you add to your lists from today will not appear on the new site. Next week we will release the beta site to you all, and you can start to use the new site to update your lists! (the old site will still be available for a short time just in case).

Once you get access to the site next week the first thing you will notice is the totally new design. This provides a nice new interface for the really clever stuff which come from a complete rebuild from the ground up. This means we can update the site more often and more easily so over the coming months there are a number of improvements planned.

Our objective stays the same though – we want to give you the best service for keeping track of the things that you want to get, whether youโ€™ve found those things on boxedup or on any store on the web. Now that we’ve got past a lot of the hard work getting the new site prepared, we have more time to keep in touch, so expect to see more of us here on our blog and on twitter too.

We’ll publish blog posts with hints a tips on using the new site, but we hope you will all find it easy to use. Some new features you’ll notice are the improved searching functions, price comparisons and of course (after being the top voted request on our feedback!) a print list function ๐Ÿ™‚

We really do want to hear from you, whether itโ€™s the good, the bad, or the ugly! If you like good, old fashioned, email then get in touch using support at boxedup.com or through the boxedup twitter account http://www.twitter.com/boxedup, so if you’re a twitter enthusiast then give us a follow to keep up-to-date with developments, or just @ us if you want to let us know anything.

    Please fix the BoxedUp Facebook app! in the last YEARS it sucked, having zero functionality. Please make it capable to at least show the wishlist on Facebook, or publish an update on the Facebook wall each time I add an item to the wishlist.
    Thanks

    Hooray! I thought BoxedUp was dead for a while. I'm so happy to see the new design. Great work!

    Hi Sergio,

    We've been working on a complete rewrite of the code which has been the focus for some time now.

    Once we've completed the beta launch sorting the Facebook app is on our list of priorities.

    Thanks for your comments guys and we hope you like the new site when you get your hands on it.

    Isn't it relatively easy to add facebook support directly on the website these days? Facebook apps doesnt make much sense the way users use facebook today.

    Good idea if new wishes are published on the wall as you select them.

    Hi Henrik,

    Thanks for getting in touch.

    Facebook is something we'll be looking at once the site goes from beta state to live in the next few weeks, but you're right it should be reasonably straight forward.

    We're as keen as you to get the integration sorted. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Thanks,

    boxedup

    I miss the old format of changing the order of items in the list. The new way takes a long time and is not as fluid. I hope this can be fixed.

    Hi Joe. Thanks for your comment.

    It's something we've got on our development list and we'll post more information when we have it.
