New Look on Product Pages

UPDATE 7/24/2013: We heard you loud and clear! In response to your feedback, we've added separate tabs so you can find all sets and collections more easily. Check it out in the updated screenshot below

Dear Polyvore Community,

We love shopping, and we adore a great makeover — so we're happy to share a new look on our product pages!



When you view an item, we'll still give you all the details, so you can tell whether you've found the *perfect* piece. But if you're still just exploring, you'll find much more:
  • As you scroll down, you can shop through many more products! The page shows items that are similar in style & color, as well as related items that other members liked.
  • Products are larger, so you can easily see and like products without an extra click.
  • Outfits are included as Styling Ideas to show you all the ways to wear what you love.
  • You can still see all similar items or all styling ideas separately by using the "similar item" or "styling idea" link at the lower left corner of each item or set.
  • The more you scroll, the more inspiration you'll see!
We hope you'll enjoy these new ways to explore through Polyvore's pages of inspiration. Happy shopping!

Love,
The Polyvore Team

I hate it! It's too hard to find sets and collections. I would really like it if you could incorporate a filter, that we could just look a sets, collections, or similar items individually. Right now it's just a jumbled mess.

Stefanie said...

You can't see the product in collections now.

Cinnamon Flavoured Void said...

Not good, Polyvore, not good. Now the similar items, collections and sets with that item are all mixed up, why did you feel the need to do that?

It either needs more work to make it more organized or make it as it was (functional and organized, why change things which are great).

It looks awful! Please change it back to the old one
I can't stand all these new changes

Needs a filter!

It's much more difficult to see the collections now. It would be great if the collections and similar items were separate like before. Also, now the "similar" items aren't always similar to the item, especially if you're looking for interior items. I just looked at a table and instead of seeing other tables or even other types of furniture, I see earrings, sunglasses, fashion sets, etc. I know this is primarily a fashion site, but I'd love it if you'd consider changing it so that if we look at an interior item, we see other interior items and sets.

I would like to see my sets the way it was, individual sets. Now it is to much to look at all at the same time. Need individual sections.

_Polyvore your new update is confusing and irrelevant I don't understand why you are doing this._

_I hate it everyone hates it. It's so stupid. I can't see who saved my items. Which is irritating and this whole new updating nonsense is just jumbled up_

Nikell (Modestyfashions on Polyvore) said...

I'll have to admit, I'm not really all that excited about this one. I like to see who's saved the item, the collections etc. I think the filter idea would be a nice thing to have. Other than that, I'm liking the changes so far. Thanks so much for working so hard to make Polyvore the best it can be (^_^)

Lisa R said...

It definitely needs a filter to choose between sets, collections and similar items.

Shawna said...

So far my feelings are mixed. A lot of the time it seems the results are random, and therefore not useful. Here's an example: I have an item called "Mid-Century Slope Chair Fuchsia". I would expect to see other items labeled mid-century or that are fuchsia colored, but instead I see fashion items that have no keyword connection to that particular item. I can't figure out how the site is generating these "similar items". I saved this item a few days ago, I think. Is there a delay?

Also, it really was useful (and fun!) to see how other people used items in sets. Ditto for collections. Perhaps you could add tabs next to "more products and looks", separating the sets and collections and making them easier to find?

Thanks so much for all your hard work and commitment to improving the site!

Marko Kojic said...

tI don't like this. Polyvore you disappoint me every time!

CBD said...

Gonna have to agree with the others on this one--this new feature on the products pages is awkward and confusing. Tabs for filtering, similar to those on profiles--that allow one to select what they want to see (sets, likes, etc.) would rectify the awkwardness. :-/

Anonymous said...

I agree with the others ;( I hate how it is all mixed up I would like it if you had different tabs with one showing the collections the item is in and another showing sets and similar items. You probably don't even listen to our comments anyway but I just need yo say I hate how you have taken away the welcome sets and showcases ;(;(;(; I am really mad at your new design ;(;(;(

Why do you keep ignoring what we want and changing things no one cares about?

Anonymous said...

Bad. Bad. Bad. The product page used to be perfect, why change it? Everything was there, likes, sets, collections, similar items..everyone could easily find what they were interested to. This now is horrible, it makes no sense at all. It's confusing, too random and irrelevant (similar items are not even closely similar for example). Also, there have to be sets and collections created with specific item, isn't that the core of this site? I know that Polyvore is most about selling products now but I think you should leave some Polyvore for us who create it daily too. I guess the SHOP section is quite enough, and i remember there used to be some kind of popular items page (which was great)so consider that, maybe?

Anonymous said...

OMG!!!! this is the worst thing ever.so many clicks and rolls to find a set with that item,and where are the collections????? can't find zero!
it was so much better before we had sets,collections and also lots of items...why need to change to worst,this is really bad change!
return to old one or make it much much better so we can find things much easier ,this is not working!

Lerato said...

As a 6 year Polyvore veteran I'M NOT a fan of this new change (usually I love and look forward to changes...)
I think the product page should return to how it once was. It's so MESSY right now :(

Taylor Anon said...

Hate it.
Also hate the new profile layout; I loved my showcase and now I can't even see it!!

Anonymous said...

oh and yes,can we see who also likes that item?we can't see that anymore.I so hate it that I won't even look for details any more!

Niki Adams said...

I don't know why the product page is so unorganized now. I loved the way it was before. I could find anything before! Please change it back and the old profile layout!

Rachel said...

HORRIBLE! We can't see the sets the items were used in. Absolutely awful! It's so uninspiring!!!

Anonymous said...

The item page is a mess, like i said before. change it back. none of the 'similar items' aren't even similar. and i like the collections. i can't even find collections now.

Anonymous said...

Everything is so horrible now. You guys don't even respond to how much we hate polyvore now. I used to have so much fun on this website but it's so cluttered and messy now and definitely confusing. I hate how you guys keep changing it. Like, change it to how it once was before instead of making changes everyday. It's annoying and obviously no one likes what polyvore is doing. And no showcases ? Really ? okay polyvore okay. It's just making people leave and stop making fashion. This is not inspiring nor cute. I already know polyvore will never be the same that's why i'm deleting my account because theirs no use to go on this website if it's getting sh*ttier and useless. I'm sorry but it's the awful truth. Polyvore needs to go back to the way it was.

Alyssa said...

You just need to stop changing things, period. Or else everyone is going to leave.

Leigha-watlington said...

STOP AND READ THIS

Polyvore, I'm not going to give my opinion because you've gotten enough of those comments already. BUT people who are trashing the new layouts need to calm down. They can still make sets, post them, and find the details they want. If they don't want to hunt for it, that's their problem.

People who say that they will leave or that others will leave: Stop. Just stop. No one is asking you to stay. Polyvore is a privelige, and we need to respect the site and owners. If they wanted, they could delete your account without a question. If you want to leave, by all means, DO IT. NO one is asking you to stay.

No offense is intended; my opinion will not be given. Polyvore, thank you for creating this site. It's much better than I or many of the members could ever do. I appreciate your hard work. Thank you.

THIS WHOLE CHANGING LAYOUTS AND ITEMS SUCKS SO BAD.
WE SHOULD BE GIVEN THE OPTION TO SWITCH VIEWS - THAT WAY EVERYONE IS HAPPY.
I FEEL LIKE LEAVING BECAUSE EVERYTHING HAS TURNED TO SHIT.

TiffYG2133 said...

It really doesn't matter what I write here Polyvore isn't interested in what the useres of the site thik, they just change whatever they want no matter how CRAPPY it is & that's that! It's like dealing with my ex-husband! If Polyvore continues on like this I might not EVER come back!

Anonymous said...

I love the change!! Now I don't have to enter a collection in order to like it! I also like that I can see sets that have used this item more clearly, AND it allows me to like those sets as well. Frankly, I LOVE all of PV's new changes. I would love to see auto-save, and I prefer page numbers to scrolling, but it's all good! Thank you Polyvore.

I dislike some aspects this change. The mixing of similar items, sets and looks in the "MORE ITEMS & LOOKS" tab below an item makes it hard to find other items. I like the larger previews but they would be better served if there were a similar items tab and a people also liked tab in addition to existing tabs. I like the concept of the "MORE ITEMS & LOOKS" just I don't like the fact that there are no tabs for items only.

Anonymous said...

I do not like the italic letter now used in the editor, profile header, and item names. It does not fit in with the sleek and chic outlay of the rest of the site.

Анастасия Музыка said...

will be perfect if the product page have the same tabs as folowwing page - so I can choose to see collections, sets or similar items. I don't like the mess I see now on product page, the idea is great but I want some more organisation, so I can easily find what I need!!!

breadwineroses said...

I am so appreciative of your continued efforts to improve the site! I think everything looks absolutely beautiful, aesthetically speaking, but the product page is quite frankly making it so much harder for me to find the *perfect* item for a set (for all the reasons listed previously by other users). That said, I am confident that you can find a way to make this beautiful update a bit more functional in the future! :)

Anonymous said...

it's the worst idea ever. it's not good. it's inconvenient.no one needs it :/

Anonymous said...

sounds good, but we definitely don't really need it, per say.

what i honestly love is the new title font. it's a tad inconvenient as you can't use special characters such as the different "a" or small caps, but it looks elegant and professional, and i love that.

Anonymous said...

Yes, I agree with many of the comments above; please add filters or tabs specifically for sets and collections, thank you.

kneesock said...

Looks great! I love that I can choose if I want to look at an unlimited number sets or collections the item is in. However, I do miss seeing the list of people who saved an item! It's fun to scroll back through time and see who shared it first.

metalheavy said...

Thank you for the filter! That helps so much.

Anonymous said...

This is becoming too much. While it is helpful in some ways it hurts in more. i liked seeing items in collections and now you have to dig through just to find the collection because it is mixed in with sets and other items. It's just too much.

Polyvore said...

Thanks for your feedback! You can now see all sets or collections containing the item by clicking the appropriate tab.

clara-bow80 said...

Perfection! Thank you, Polyvore, for improving the update to the Product Pages. The tabs are great, and now when I look at interior items, I see similar interior items and interior sets.

Saralee said...

I Love Polyvore . . . but this change is absolutely hideous! Don't even want to go to my profile page or anyone else's for that matter. I'm sorry but this change is one of the worst e-v-e-r! No showcase . . . this sucks! Why do we always have to have things change? Makes me sad!! Starting to lose interest here!

Anonymous said...

I like how you edited/updated the Product Pages with tabs for Sets and Collections but still, can you still add a showcase on the new profile look?

Katrine said...

where are my drafts????

Anonymous said...

Awful, this change is awful. It's all messed up. It was a lot easier to do just about everything before. How do I organize my items? I can't simply do it from my object's page like i did before. I absolutely hate the new features. Why did you change something that worked perfectly fine? Now it just annoys me and I end up closing the site in order not to scream because of how orrible it is.
Not sure I'll be able to use the site anymore, which sucks because I really liked it. There's just too many things to click on, for example, why did you move the drafts? It was really easy tosee them before, now the pictures are too small and confusing, there's too many per page, I can't focus on the one I need.
Was it really necessary to change almost everything?
It's really sad to see polyvore ruined. I'm sure you can't/won't take it back to before like I'd love for you to. I hate changes, and you're changing it a bit too much too often for my tastes. I've been using polyvore for years and nothing usually changed, now lately it's changing avery month or so! It's terrible. What a way to ruin it all.
As I said before it's awful. I don't see why you have to change everything.
