Introducing Draft Mode

Today, we're super excited to launch a new Editor feature that lets you save a draft of your set before publishing it. This is a very special present for all of our set creators, but especially for those Polyvore perfectionists who like to primp their sets for a looong time...

Here's how it works:

When you open the Editor, you'll see a couple new things. First off, a "Drafts" tab has been added to the top of the items panel. All of your draft sets will be accessible here - only for you to see. If you'd like to edit one of your drafts, you can simply drag it over to the Editor to begin.



The Sets tab will now only contain those sets which have already been published. Dragging a set over to the canvas will load it for editing. If there is a draft version of that set available, the Editor will automatically load that version for you.

Second, once you start creating or editing a set, you'll notice a couple new buttons on the canvas.



The "Save Draft" button lets you...uhm...save a draft of your set :-) You can click this as often as you like while you're editing your set. Once you're done with your set, click "Publish" to add a title, description, and add it to any groups you belong to. At this point, your set will become visible to the Polyvore community.

This is a feature that a lot of you have been requesting, and we're excited to make it available to you and hear what you think of it. So check it out, and let us know!

Absolutely YES!!! Thank you for implementing this. Polyvore is by far the best site when it comes to this type of format and regarding feedback with questions or suggestions. It will be very exciting to see what else is in store for the future!!

Clove

I love this feature! I haven't used it yet, but I'm sure I will. This way I'll be able to start on my ideas so I don't forget about them, but I'll be able to complete it later if I'm unable to! I also love that I don't have to put up an "under construction" warning. Thank you Polyvore!

This is just an idea that I've been thinking about, and people may or not agree, but some may like it:
I think it would be nice to find items using TWO color choices, rather than the one we are offered now. I just think that would be nice for some outfits where we have a specific color scheme in mind and don't want to have to search through all of the items that don't include what we're looking for.
Does that make sense? lol
