Enhancements to Your Profile

Polyvore has grown so much and there are now many ways to discover, create and share your content around the site. So that all of your activity can be reflected, we've added some customization options to your Profile page to make it easier for you to show more of what you like to do most on Polyvore. You can now choose to show your Q&A answers, likes, and items you've clipped on your Profile page. Also, collections will display the first 4 items or sets in a grid.

To customize your Profile page, just click 'Edit my profile' and select the 'Design' tab. Check the boxes next to the types of content you'd like to include on your Profile page and click the 'Update' button.

As always, if you have feedback or suggestions, please tell us what you think by leaving a comment here on the blog.

Love,
The Polyvore Team

I would really like for my "likes" not to show up on my page, but even though I uncheck the little box, the "likes" still show up on my page D: how do I fix that?

Anonymous said...

when i try to customize my profile, every time i un-tick the "likes" box, my likes keep appearing in my page, and when i go back to design the box is ticked even when i already un-ticked it before and pressed UPDATE.

why's that???

also, long ago i accidentally added myself to my contacts, and i would like to remove me but i don't know how, what can i do??

I can't take the "likes" portion off my page. I uncheck the box, save, and then go bac k to my front page to find that they are still there. So I go back again to uncheck the box to see that the box is in fact checked still. It's an endless cycle, no matter how many times I uncheck the box and save, the likes remain on my page.

I'm am highly annoyed, the likes take up practically my entire front page.

No matter how many times I uncheck the Likes box and save my profile design changes, the Likes keep showing up in my profile and when I try to edit it again the Likes box has magically rechecked itself. Please fix this.

Thanks for letting us know! We're looking into this for you guys. Stay tuned...

Maddie said...

I wanted to take away likes from my page - but it won't let me! I don't really think it's fair, because I only want my sets on my profile. The likes makes it more ugly looking as you can just view it on the side. I do like the idea of items clipped though maybe it would be better as an option on the side?

nadia said...

Hi everyone,

If you were previously having trouble unchecking the box for 'Likes,' this has been fixed. You should be able to edit this preference now. Thanks for the immediate feedback!

I would love if we could search through our saved items by color, like we can do with all the items on Polyvore. I've had an account for 3.5 years, so I have a lot of stuff saved, and it can be hard to go through it all and find exactly what I'm looking for. Being able to search by color would help this a lot.

Also, sometimes when I click on an item's page, it will say there are no sets using the item, even when I know there are

only check the style advice.and it will be off.

Please create some way to disable seeing what your contacts clip on your homepage. I do not like seeing what my friends clip.

i really think that showing only the first items the collection look better and 'calls' more atention...

Anonymous said...

Can you please take away the enhancements? I think that just about everybody who has noticed/discovered this doesn't like it at all. Please and thank-you.

There ought to be an easier way to come across templates. Basically, can they be published similar to how sets are, and able to be put in collections or found on a member's profile?

Anonymous said...

I had the same weird problem with the likes and things. Just uncheck the Collection box and they will disappear. Make sure all are unchecked to get to the way it was before! I'm pretty sure your normal collections still show up!

I really don't want my likes to show up on my profile. I like lots of stuff so you cant see any of my sets. ):

I love choice! Choice is good! Especially when shopping for your favorite fashions!

BUT polyvore, could you please give us more choice over our profile AND our home page.

The newest profile 'enhancements' do not save for me.

I think it would be fantastic to keep the text links on the page, and give us choices over what 'graphics' we want to see or show!

I would love to turn off all, turn off some, or have all of my thumbnail graphics on if I choose!
(This would also help slower computers that have problems loading graphic intensive pages.)

About the templates. I still can't find any to fill :(

when i go to create a set it wont let me see my items, edit sets, or search for new items. . . WHY?

Anonymous said...

this is really bugging me! i don't mind it but to be honest i think it's a waste of space! not the best thing polyvore has had done to it! Sorry...

Ayesha said...

The title of the set looks really very bad in blue,can we have the black back,if not then we should at least have the option to choose the color ourselves.

Anonymous said...

NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I'm usually pretty open to your changes, Polyvore and even like them usually. But this time I really can't stand it. You made things 100000 times more inconvenient. I hate my questions showing up on my profile right away. It takes away from my sets that I want people to see. I am not even going to answer questions any more if it's going to take up profile space. PLEASE! Change it back!

Anonymous said...

Thank you! I love when you give us options to customize our profile pages. Great job with all the new features poly team!

some antics

Robsessed73 said...

Thank you for trying to improve everything on PV.

But to be honest, I don't like the titles being in blue now (black just fits with everything ;) and the collections now showing the first 4 sets, is not an improvement (I think)... it doesn't look nice to me, sorry.

But thanks again for always thinking of us and with us!!
I ♥ Polyvore!!!

I would love a search by color option for out items ,it`s something i wanted to suggest for a long time . It would also be cool if we could actually see the people that added us as their contact, instead of just seeing the number of people that have us as their contact...this is more out of curiosity than practical reasons :) .

Hayley said...

I love the new features! but can we have a way to search though templates, because it's hard to find them unless someone else has used one or you make one! that would be really handy! thank you

VaiyaRosa said...

I love it!

EMILY LIZ said...

OK, I did it. I click the boxes on "design" and It does what you guys say. So I do not know what the people are talking about. You POLY MEMBERS might want to get out of poly and then return or something. Or maybe click profile again.

Anyways,

I like the idea, but If I click on
All the boxes in "Design" which are:
Collections
Style Advice
Items
Likes

The first set is OK which is the last set I created. But then there's a section of "LIKES" then another section of "likes".
Then a section of "Clipped" which are our pictures we saved, which is OK. Then you guys have LIKES again then CLIPPED again. Then our set again, and then LIKES again then my set again. Why???? It looks a little confusing don’t you think?

Can the Poly staff put THE LATEST SET we created? Then our most POPULAR SETS. Maybe our "COLLECTIONS" of our choosing. Then way at the bottom put the "LIKES" section. And maybe 4 of our Clipped Items. I'd love to see my GROUPS sets in my profile to keep track of everything in my group. Just a thought. Can you make the section smaller. The only thing that should stand out should be our sets I think, because that should be the focal point of the profile. Everything else should be smaller. Coming back to "Groups". I want to see a link for my "GROUPS" "SOME WHERE IN EDIT PROFILE". I deeply dislike having to search for my groups simply because you guys don’t have the group links anywhere. Is there a way that you guys can put a link in EDIT PROFILE or a link by where is says: "recent site activity", new set, likes, new comments, new contacts, new announcements, and three new set usages. Maybe put a link there, "NAMED "MY GROUPS. If you do that people would visit there groups more than they do now. I just hate having to search for my group. Trust me when I say this, more people will run there groups allot better. And you won't have to delete a person’s group because there is no recent activity.

You guys are Great, Thank You.

i can't creat anything it ia a blank page .it has been that way for a week .i am having withdrawls pleeese someone help.

Anonymous said...

No offense, but i think it`s sort of annoying how the advice stuff shows up on profiles instead of sets.

I want to see sets!!!!
If i want to see the advice they`ve given out, i can just click the advice thing!!!!!!

it bothers me soo much!!!!!!!

EMILY LIZ said...

HEY, AGAIN.

I've been thinking, that I probably like to be able to put what I like in my own profile. I think all POLY MEMBERS should be able to design and put the sets they want in there our poly profile. I think that will be fun to do. You might want to think about that.

Sorry, but you asked for poly members opinions and I happen to be the queen of opinions.

Have a great day everyone.

Anonymous said...

I think that profile pages should be for sets. If you want to see advice, you can click the advice button! Same with likes. Just my opinion : )

Precious said...

Sorry for the feisty emails I sent yesterday. I just noticed that I can customize my profile, so I changed my profile back to only highlight my sets.
I hope that a lot of people will do this as well.

Dee W said...

i dont see why ppl dont want ppl to see their set likes...its weird to me! you should be proud of them and what to show everyone how many you have!!! i barely have any and im STILL proud!!! =) i love you polyvore!!!!

Anonymous said...

how do i get followers and how do i check how many i have? I really want to make a group.

Anonymous said...

That is nice, but please can u make an application for iphone. So we can all make sets while we are waiting at the doctors office. lol Merry xmas to you all.
Thanks.

Katrina said...

I don't know if this is the right place to post these kind of OT suggestions, if there is a better place please direct me to it.

First I want to say THANK YOU to all the people who have made Polyvore happen. It has given me hours of enjoyment and helped me improve my style. I can honestly say I am better dressed now than I was just a few weeks ago.

Like someone else suggested, I would love to search saved items by color.

I would like to have an Erase tool for erasing backgrounds. Usually polyvore does great at removing backgrounds but sometimes there are extra random blobs that ruin the item & sometimes its too intricate to do the custom background. So if we could have the option to erase both custom backgrounds & the PV backgrounds that would be great. And sometimes the custom background just can't get the edges smooth.

It would be great to be able to edit templates while you are filling it with items. You can't know if its perfect until you fill it and sometimes just that one little thing is wrong & its beyond frustrating to have to fix it and then fill it all over again.

I think thats it. Thanks.

Hey could you please make a way to search for items in your own items? Or make folders for organizing?

Just anything that is easier to organize your items because I have tons and it gets frustrating to have to look fo ritems throught pages and pages. Oh, also could you make a way to delete items right from you items rather than having to the link to that item?

THANKS

i hate the "likes" showing up on everyones profile. i want to see what people create, not what they like, i could care less about that.

desislava said...

Likes of course, I can not remove them. I don't like the titles being where they are and the collections now showing the first 4 sets, is not an improvement anyway! Other ways you do great things here! I love my polyworld! Thanks for you always are here for us! Merry Christmas and Happy New year!

suzana maria brega said...

I love Polyvore, but almost a month ago I faced problems in moving my items, every time you rotate the items they freeze the screen and it does not go and I have to remove or start all over again. I do not know if it's the lack of any application on my pc, or is the site. But I would like a response. Not only me, but several friends are in trouble they can not build sets and have sent message to Polyvore and not get a response.

Marisa said...

Hey I'm having a bit of a problem. Can someone please help me? I was trying to make a set and I went to go add an item to it and the item wouldn't add. In fact, none of the items would add....HELP!!

Marisa said...

erm....nevermind....stupid Firefox....
