New Collection Features! Commenting and Slideshow Embeds

New Collection Features! Commenting and Slideshow Embeds



Dear Polyvore community,

Today we've added two new features to collections that we think you'll love. One of the most frequent requests we've heard from you is to be able to comment on collections. We're happy to announce that this feature is finally here! In addition, we've made it easier to publish collections to your blog with a cool new slideshow format.

Commenting on Collections

To comment on a collection, just click the "Post a comment" link and your comment will appear near the bottom of the page. Whenever you receive a comment on your collection, you'll get a notification in your activity stream, via email and on mobile, too.


Post Collections on your Blog in a Slideshow

On the collection page, click the "Post to blog" link on the collection page. A dialog will pop up that lets you choose the slideshow layout. With this layout, we've also added the option to display the captions and image gallery below your slideshow.


Here's an example of what the slideshow layout will look like on your blog:





We hope you like these new additions! As always, let us know what you think by leaving a comment here on the blog.

Love,
The Polyvore Team

Thanks Polyvore! These new features are wonderful and easy to use. I've been searching all over the web for a picture grid feature or a cool slide show feature without success and now Polyvore offers it to us! Thanks, you guys are truly the BEST!

This is a very cool feature. Thank you for that. Not sure what is happening but many members, incuding me we are having some issues with our activity pages. I lost more than 20.000 views and likes. Why? Please fix the problem or at least let us know why it happened. Not fair to see that I only have 10 views for yesterday and than when I check my set that I published yesterday has 1500 views for a day. I already contacted you and some other members too......but nothing was heard from Polyvore Team yet.....................

I like the changes to the collection, however the one change concerning collections I would like to see is be able to access my collections and the items in a collection when making a set. This is a change would really love to see.

Love the new changes!! Thank you :) Another suggestion I have is separating tags in your activity stream so it easier easier to search for sets you've been tagged in. But thankyou for the changes so far :D

Awesome! Next I'd love to see a way to group collections into a collection. Since the 100 item limit was implemented, I've had to break collections down, so it'd be great to be able to sort them all together.

When I was on "member spot" I said I'd like to be able to comment on collections, and finally here it is. I really, really like this change! Thank you! :)

I LOVE the ability to comment on sets ... but what I don't love is the inability to "safe" items directly from a collection. I know have to click on that item and then save it. If I had to choose between the two, I would rather be able to "safe" from the collection ... fewer "clicks" ...

Now what I WOULD love is the ability to pull from a collection directly into a set ... What are the chances of that???

stormbattereddragon said...

Yes! I have been longing to comment on collections. Thank you Polyvore Team for all you do for us every day. :)

thanks polyvore!  I wish there was a feature where you could make some sets private or viewable for some friends only instead of making everything public. thanks!

I love the commenting on collections, but what happened to the rest of it? Why is everything gray and boring? Like, the options for the sets. The likes, the 'embed set' option and all those things. Everything used to have a thumbnail and they were colorful and cute, now everything is plain and ungly. Completely inappropriate for a creativity based fashion site. Please, get rid of the gray, bring our colors back.

This is great! Thanks for the change (^_^)
