Introducing a few new features on theCHIVE

Chivers: We heard your feedback and suggestions loud and clear and we have added a few new features that will make binge-chiving and sharing even easier. Enjoy.

1. The PREVIOUS – SHUFFLE – NEXT bar allows you to click from post-to-post in chronological order. Hit the SHUFFLE button to be surprised by an awesome random post from theCHIVE’s archives from the past 3 years. It’s like hitting the crack pipe for the first time, and we would know.

2. The new SHARE button allows you to easily EMAIL posts to friends. There’s also Facebook and Twitter sharing included in this button (even though no one uses Twitter).

3. The RETURN TO TOP button propels you to the top of the page without reloading the page. It’s magic.

We’re always looking to enhance user-experience here at theCHIVE, so please leave any more feedback and awesome ideas in the comments below and we will read them.

  • Sly

    #3 is exactly what I wish every website had. Like tapping the top bar on an iphone!

    Genius Chive, genius!

    • K.C.

      Some people don't know about the home button…..lol

    • Bam

      the Home button comes built in to every page…

  • .Krookz

    Yay for return to top!

    • https://www.facebook.com/jason.ciotti Jason Ciotti

      Yeah bc pressing "Home" on your keyboard doesn't do the same thing…although I guess for Touchscreens its useful.

      • https://thechive.com/ GernBlansten

        Many laptops have no "Home" button.

        • http://www.facebook.com/dave.wolfinger Dave Wolfinger

          and what laptops do you use?

  • jrey81

    love the return to the top option… dunno how much of pain it would be, but is there a way to group the posts by days? sometimes i know i miss a tuesday or thursday because my "work" distracts me and it'd be cool to jump back to the day i know i missed. could be a programming nightmare tho…

    • http://www.thechive.com Leo

      I just added the calendar back in the footer so you can sort by day.

      • jrey81

        thanks, Leo! u guys still accepting care packages? got some premium denim if u can fit 31's & 32's!

    Auto-Scroll!!! So I can finally eat and read at the same time!!!!

  • Kaars

    Waste away your work day with the highest possible level of efficiency!!!

    Thanks Chive!

  • TigerDroppings

    Still no iOS app?

  • Tuttified

    Is there any way you could develop a button to increase the # of shirts you guys order?

    • JPV310

      I see what you did there and you need to keep calm, and not be a whiny bitch. just get here a few minute prior to them going live

  • Charlie_Cheen

    Hmmmm, My Share button is not appearing?

    Love the PREVIOUS – SHUFFLE – NEXT bar though!

  • Kevin

    Well done Chive Masters.

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100000018963941 Tim Brown

    A dating site kind of feature for Chivers to meet Chivettes would be pretty sweet…… Just sayin

    • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100000018963941 Tim Brown

      But high 5 on the new changes. Thanks, now I'm never going to get anything accomplished at work!

    • dungydouche

      Forever alone

    • http://www.thechive.com Leo

      Great idea! theCHIVE Dating is actually launching next week

      • https://thechive.com/ Paula_

        I am SO going to bang YOU first!

        – the one you love to hate

  • Number4

    The shuffle feature is awesome – like I wasn't wasting enough time on here already.

    • http://www.collegehomeworkhelp.net college homework

      this is interesting news, thank you

  • https://www.facebook.com/wchung7 Will Chung

    Email subscribers have to click on the perm link to bookmark Chive goodness. Change it so links from email goes to the permalink!

  • https://thechive.com/ GernBlansten

    Could you add a feature that electrocutes anyone trying to be "first"?

    • http://Homes4Men.com Stafferty

      Neutering is also a solid choice

    • amrith777

      ^^ THIS (both suggestions)

  • Japanese Facts.

    Yet you still can't get rid of paula…

    • https://thechive.com/ Paula_

      Hell yeah!

      – the one you love to hate

  • Duh!

    I agree with Tuttified…..Chive, why order just a few hundred shirts. You can see the interest is there, also you see the knock-offs and copies. Why not keep ordering them and cashing in, thus keeping the fans happy?

    • PattysSoreHand

      Because they don't trust Patty to order them correctly.

  • Obvilious

    Your sir, have just made us gods.

  • zholbe

    Hoo-ray for "return to top" button!!

  • reant

    when do we get an android app

  • https://thechive.com/ mattythegooch

    And yet, I still have to use my own hand to masturbate……..

    • amrith777

      If it's someone elses hand other than your own–it's no longer masturbation 😉

      But your comment still made me laugh/smile,as most of your comments do…..

  • Brendan

    I suggest that when someone posts a comment and reference a picture # that it link to the comment section of that particular picture. That way when you click on a picture you see all the comments made about that picture from the time it was posted. That is all.

    • The_Dood

      That's actually a pretty damn good idea.

      • CowboyAdam22

        i know right

    • Natalie

      yes! I always want to see the comments for a specific picture.

  • DarthLOL

    Hows about a button at the top to propel us to the "PREVIOUS – SHUFFLE – NEXT bar" in case we don't want to view the page the shuffle delivered?

    • http://www.facebook.com/unrulyresult Cj White

      Bravo, just about to say the same and lo and behold the last comment takes my thunder!! +100

  • USAF

    I emailed the Chive about a few weeks ago suggesting they make FORUMS.

    I think it would be cool to have, for example, a St Louis forum (where I'm from) to socialize with fellow local chivers/chivettes.

    Also would be cool just to chat in forums with everyone else on here, instead of going back to to all these picture threads and commenting ect…

    • AssClown

      Kudos, but there must be a button for "ignore trolls" or at least one that say "ignore Paula".
