New! Time-saving Features

We know some of you could spend your entire lives on Polyvore. Hey, we don’t mind - we just want to make sure it’s time well spent! We’ve added some new time-saving tricks to help you out:

Edit Set Titles and Descriptions
Ever look at your set and realize you’ve got a typo or forgot a tag? It’s okay! Now you can easily edit your text directly on the page without re-publishing the whole set. Just hover over the text and click inside the box that appears, then type and save your changes.


Comment Likes
Sometimes it’s just impossible to respond to all of your comments. So we added comment likes as a quick and easy way to say “Me too!” or “Thank you!” to your friends and fans. Just hover over the comment and click the heart to send someone a Like.


We hope you like the new changes, and we’d love to hear from you if there are more ways we can help!

Love,
The Polyvore Team

6Ah, the "Edit title" feature was so needed! Thanks for finally providing it :)

Please look at that set I made, Polyvore Team. It's a petition against the new Profile page. Many members dislike the new page seeing as it lacks personality. I loved having a showcase and a title because it gave my profile personality and such. Now everyone's profile's look so bland and nothing looks appealing anymore. So just take a look at my set and realize this new Profile page is not something people are fond of.

Both new features sound so great!

Natalie said...

this is great! but why can't we pin collections anymore? really miss that feature and the ask section :(

We really need a polyvore android app!

Brievel Montague said...

I do like the new set title/description editing feature. Liking a comment is just ridiculous. And I hate the new profile page!!!!!!

Ingrid said...

I tried editing text with that new feature and it removed my set from the groups it was in.

Anonymous said...

Love that we can edit the description and title again. HATE how the item page is now though. When i click an item it's like a huge mess. I can't even find collections the items in

Anonymous said...

We love all the new features!! But....no matter how many new things you add we only need and want one thing....STYLE ADVICE. We want it back. You don understand how many people left because of that and how many people make groups to recreate style advice. If you care about anything we like PLEASE GIVE US STYLE ADVICE!!!!! next thing you know you're deleting groups and then sets....shake my head

breadwineroses said...

The editing descriptions feature is KEY! Thank you all! :]

Anonymous said...

the edit title is awesome thanks :) also for the app and the website it should be easier to see if a set is done by a template there should be a symbol next to the title or something.

Niwi said...

The tittle editing is a cool thing, thank you very much!
About the rest... well it will not be of any use for me so I can't tell. The point is that our activity stream is totally polluted with some "like's" we don't really care about. Too much of them.

Anonymous said...

HI!
I'm absolutely loving these new features, however I was wondering if there was a way so that when you click on an item you can view the collections its in easier?
Thanks!!

Anonymous said...

I agree with Niwi, the editing feature was totally needed, especially for us Artists it took a long time to republish all the items again... but the "like" feature... well... not bad bot not a must - have! THANKS for your growing and growing all the time <3 LadyOfCrows

Nihil said...

Great features, thanks!

@ Niwi: click on "customize" on your activity page. You can disable item likes.

Anonymous said...

I agree with Anonymous at 12:17. I really want style advice back. That was my whole day and now I'm thinking about quitting if you guys don't change..

I love the new updates! the new profile layout is so cool and easy to use! thanks, Polyvore! (:

The new edit features are great but I don't understand why I can no longer tag items on the item page. It's incredibly frustrating. I also miss being able to easily see collections the item is in.

Nikell (Modestyfashions on Polyvore) said...

Lovin' the new features!! This site has evolved so much since I joined 2 years ago. It's all been fabulous.
Still waiting on the Android app though. Hopefully soon (^_^)

Teresa said...

aw yay, great additions! (:

Niyah said...

Why is is that if you submit a set to a contest, then you edit the set before the contest closes, the set in the contest doesn't save the edits? Moderators have to click on the set to see changes and frankly, no one is going to do that. Even if I remove the set from the contest and re submit it, it doesn't change.

Anonymous said...

Always great changes! You guys work hard for us. Much appreciated. Love the likes and love that I wont have to re-publish a set anymore. =0 Thanks Poly.

Love,

item page is horrible now!!! I need to see collections!! I don't need to see random items :/

jade said...

please change the profile page back! i hate it to be honest! i love having showcases and i think it looks way better the old way!!!

thank you!

Anonymous said...

Don't like the new profile page AT ALL! I do like the editing and the like commenting. I would love to see you do away with the item usage. My goodness so what! If I clipped an item 2 months ago, every time someone uses it I get a notification. IT'S OVERKILL. Dump it. The notifications are so redundant. It's just too many notificaitions at this site.

jade. said...

these are great changes! thank you for them!
but can you please change the profile page back? i think it was much better before. i liked being able to make showcases and have a title for your page. i think that showcases are great ways to show who you are and your interests. also, i liked having titles because you can write whatever you want. it looks much more creative with them on your page.
please consider this idea because many people are unhappy with the new profile page. there are even many petitions around.

Anonymous said...

THANK YOU for the Edit Title feature, that was a long time coming! The rest I'm still deciding.

But I'd like to suggest a scroll bar in the edit window with the items currently in the set, which would 'light up' the item if it is 'clicked' on the bar. This would make editing SOOO much easier than having to 'dig down' through the layers to find that one item.

Thanks Polyvore! LOVE the site.

<3

Anonymous said...

i really don't like the fact that the showcases are gone. can you bring it back? and can we get an android app?

Fashxo said...

Thanks for the new features! Helps a lot.
But pls fix some things in the new profile look, i want the trophies separated, and i want the showcase back :( but i love how you can now see multiple sets in a row.
And pls make android & ipad app! Xx

Anonymous said...

I want the old profile back!!!
I always said, "It's their website, I am a guess." But this is MY profile and this is My Polyvore too i am here evry day and I prefer the old look.
Please change it back

I'm pretty sure no one could spend their entire lives on polyvore. talk about low ambitions.

Liz said...

PLEASE change the item pages back it's inconvenient and annoying now!

Taylor Callaghan said...

It would be amazing if you could put the showcase back in the new profiles, only because it would look so much better and some people have worked really hard on theirs. Plus the Title would be nice to have back too. I see people are getting mad for the 'lack of personality' the new page has and these things would make these people happier. Thanks for your time.

EMILY LIZ said...

THAT IS SO ME, LOL, I LIVE IN POLY!! HA! THANK U THIS is a great feature. I have to EDIT A REPUBLISH MY sets all the time. I can't do a set without having to come back into it. THANK YOU.

Anonymous said...

Why have you erased our ability to see collections? If I like a certain item, I like to see the collections it is in, so I can find similar items. You keep restricting this website and making it more and more commercialized.

fashion-challenges said...

I love the new edit title feature, and the liking of comments.
But I do hate the new profile, and how when I go to my likes I can not just click "only collections" it makes it hard to see collections from months ago.
And please add back showcases && profile titles. People spend a lot of time on that

Anonymous said...

OH YAYYYYYY.......where was this last week when I needed it?....This is great, to be able to edit our titles without the whole set opening up in the editor. Less risk of changing something in our sets by accident.

THANK YOU oxoxooxox
Love Jessie (paint)

Thank you Polyvore for such cool updates!

However, as I'm sure you've heard so many times now that you're sick, I'm not a fan of the new profiles.

Why? Well I've been a member of Polyvore for over 4 years now and I remember the old profiles from 4 years ago. They looked a lot like the new ones, however I think they had more character. I think this update was a big step backwards. I especially don't like that we don't have a showcase or a title. These new profiles took away our individuality. Which is what many members strive to have. I also don't like that the sets are so small. I want people to be able to see my sets without squinting. Set likes and collection likes should be separated as well, I believe, along with the trophies.

Please consider these things, and don't just throw away our responses thinking we'll just get used to this. I've heard several members say that the new profile is confusing. I have a friend that I forced to join polyvore and now she's quit because it's TOO CONFUSING for new members that aren't experienced with your constant need to update things that don't need to be updated.

Thank you for trying but this update, quite frankly, sucks.

"If it ain't broke, don't fix it!"

Anonymous said...

I agree. Its very confusing now that its updated. Please change it back, my sets are so much smaller and I prefer to have them much bigger.

Anonymous said...

I like these changes but what I don't like is the new layout for your home page, I liked having the sidebar where my contest wins & collections are, the TABS are not working for me!

OMG BRING BACK THE SHOWCASE!!! I'm just kicking a dead horse here! :P

Great post. One more great blog here with all of the valuable information in it. Keep up the good work of sharing blogs like this modern dinette sets

Anonymous said...

Please, please, please, please, please bring the original profile pages back!!! They were a part of how expressive this site and its members are and the new ones completely forbid any sort of expression of personality beyond the sets themselves! Polyvore is my favorite site and the place I spend the most time on when I am using the internet. I don't feel like my profile is my own with the main page like it is now, and if anymore changes like that happen, I'll stop using this site, and know others that will do the same. The previous changes I have never minded and have even applauded, but this is just too much! I honestly hate what the profile pages look like now!!!

Anonymous said...

Okay I've been working with the new changes all day. I do like being able to see all my sets at a glance. WHY DID YOU TAKE AWAY "How others styled this item?" I loved when we were able to click on an item and find similar items and collections. ALL OF THAT IS NOW GONE! That sucks! The new profile page is horrible. As others have commented there is nothing personal. It looks like Facebook. This isn't Facebook it is Polyvore but with all these changes its turning into trash just like Facebook. PLEASE CHANGE IT BACK. No one likes it. Thank you.

Marko Kojic said...

I don't like new profile because everything is open items, following, followers. We do not have PRIVACY!

Eman A said...

Amazing feature! Editing titles/description is a piece of cake now. Disliking the new profile page though. Please bring back the old design. Xoxo

KATARINA-KAJA said...

no,no no...I do not like it..Why are thrown Showcase?

Yana said...

I like the new update! But I have a little followers! And I have very little to display. Take a look and vote my outfits please. THANK YOU!http://yanashevchuk.polyvore.com/

missemsy said...

Finally you brought back the "edit title" feature - I don't know why you got rid of it in the first place! I do agree with other people commenting here though, the item page is not helpful at all! Very inconvenient as we can't see what collections the items are in, sets people made with it, etc. Makes our use of Polyvore harder. Also I'm not entirely opposed to the new profile, but I did like the showcase.. The main thing with the new profile is not having archives. Having to just scroll through sets in an endless scrolling page is very hard..

Yna said...

Oh my gosh I totally needed the edit title function yesterday - thanks for finally adding it :)

I hate the new updates they are so weird now I can't see who saved my items it's so irritating. Everything about Polyvore is now irritating it is not easy to use anymore it's confusing. Don't get me wrong I love this site but the updates are ridiculous. sorry to sound rude but they are. To be honest it just looks like a hot mess

Anonymous said...

I HATE THE NEW UPDATE. I JUST LOGGED ON TO POLYVORE AND WHAT DID I SEE, I'LL TELL YOU WHAT I SAW, I SAW 50+ I JUST KNEW SOMEONE WENT ALL CRAZY AND STARTED LIKING ALL MY ITEMS. CAN WE GET SOME PRIVACY IN HERE. POLOYVORE IS TALKING ABOUT WE MADE IT EASIER FOR EVERYBODY WHEN THEY JUST MADE EVERTHING ALL EASY FOR THE PERSON THAT COMES ON UR PAGE BUT NOT EASY FOR YOU B/C YOU CANT FIND WHAT YOU NEED TO GET TO. PEOPLE DONT EVEN COME TO MY PAGE TO SEE MY SETS ANYMORE THE COME AND GO TO MY ITEMS AND START GOING ALL CRAZY LIKING THINGS.
OMG JUST GIVE ME BACK THE OLD PAGE SETUP!!!!!! IM BEGGING YOU POLYVORE. IM ON MY KNEES BEGGING YOU TO GIVE IT BACK TO ME AND THOSE THAT WANT IT BACK!!!!!!!! PLEASE

I don't particularly like the new profile page layout but I don't expect you'll change it back to what it was before. At the very least could you make it just two sets wide to make them a bit bigger for viewing so we don't have to open each individual set. Also make the titles more obvious, some of us spend ages trying to think of a suitable title ;-) And can you put a scroll bar down the side of the comments so we can read more than just the last 5.

Brittni said...

I love Polyvore so much.. I be on P all day everyday well not literally all day.. but I just wanted to say thank you all for the new improvement for the new P page.. It's amazing & cool I hope it stays like this forever.. I really don't see why people complain about it when there's nothing to complain about.. It's better than what it was before because the old P was getting a little lame..

Anonymous said...

I like the new things, I mean a million times I've messed up a title had to go back and edit it, had to delete it off my tumblr because of it resubmitted it on it.

I like the new profile page, saves time loading my screen. Though I did like my showcase I don't think people really gave a crap if they looked at my stuff there, it was more for me. And the collection is still there anyway.

Anonymous said...

I know that every time there is an update someone complains about it, and really, if you just go with the flow, you'll get used to it. However, with this most recent one including the rearranging of the items page and the profile page, I think the upgrade has done the site a disservice. Taking away the ability to see the collections an item is in is a big let down! I love making collections and seeing what other people are doing in collection-land, and this makes it near impossible to browse! Please add collections back into the item pages! I don't expect it to revert to the way it was, but if you re-added this feature, it'd be a big upgrade, in my book.

Jewelry Candy said...

Thank you for constantly looking for ways to improve.

i love the edit text feature it is GREAT !!!!!!

Anonymous said...

While it's fantastic to have the Edit Title and Description option back, I am IMMENSELY disappointed in the rest of the update. I was displeased with one of the last additions, like the item like activity which has created an unnecessary sense of hostility between certain members, but this latest one really has me wondering if Polyvore is really going in the right direction and doing what is best for their members, rather than just conforming to similar social networking layouts.

While I agree with many other people when it comes to the profile updates and the lack of individuality, among other things, what really has me riled up is the new Item page. Updates are supposed to make things easier, right? Well, all you've done with the new Item page is make things more DIFFICULT for us Polyvore users. It's a PAIN to try and fish out collections among a jumble of recommended or related items that we don't care about half the time. That's partially what collections are for anyways. It's disorganized and just a complete headache when it is supposed to be practical and useful for us Polyvore users. I seriously miss the separation of sections. Organization is important and more appealing, believe it or not.

This is not moving forwards; this is moving BACKWARDS--and this isn't the first time that you have done this. That's just my two cents, but I'm sure I'm not alone. Please, Polyvore, listen to your users.

I love the new layout! It's so time saving:) It's very simpler to the iphone/ipod app to so it's really handy!

House of Hauteness said...

Oh well, I guess you can't please everyone. I, on the other hand, really love it...especially the title edit and the option to 'like' people's comments. Very cool indeed! Thanks Polyvore. -leanne (houseofhauteness)

Artisan of the Shire said...

you are absolutely doing the wrong thing in making sets look even smaller on each of our pages now. If anything, they needed to be BIGGER, full size, like they have looked on our pages for, well, for as long as I can remember! When you started making them smaller on the "following" page it was a pain, because I don't like squinting to see everyone's sets! The commenting right on the set has been nice, but what's the point of it if you have to click on the set anyway to see it better? And now if I want to glance for an item on one of my sets I can't do that anymore because the sets are TOO FLIPPIN' SMALL! This is not an improvement on looking through everyone's sets! If anything, why not have a viewing options (small, medium, or full-size viewing), for the entire site so we'll all be happy?

Yosilda K said...

I am sorry Polyvore team but disappontment is not enough to describe my feelings when I saw my new profile page today. All these changes instead of making navigation on Polyvore easier make it harder. Everything is all around the place, my profile doesn't look like mine anymore. Also what is with the sharing of everything we save? I like my privacy of items and I do not like them being used before I even get to use them. Even though we can see if we want the sets, other people can see everything I like and save and every activity among the members. From what I gather,is that sets and creations don't matter anymore, only items-products and the shops where we can buy them. I sound frustrated I know but Polyvore was a unique place for most of the members. Now I don't know if I can say the same. Once again I am very disappointed.

Hannah said...

I really miss having a title on my profile as well as having a collection as a showcase. That really allows members to showcase sets they are proud of and I'm sure I'm not the only one that feels this way. I wish a site like Polyvore took the time to really ask the members what they want because as much as the Polyvore staff control the site it is the members that keep the site very popular. I would also love it if we had the choice whether we are browsing collections liked or sets liked because I miss that feature. I'm greatly disappointed in these changes.

Daryl Dixon said...

Haha I wish I knew this earlier xD

I've always wanted the ability to change the description in a set without having to edit the whole set!!!! Thank you sooo much!

TiffYG2133 said...

The profile page are SOOO boring now, no more spotlight, all your sets are small and it looks lame! I wanna scratch my eyes out just looking at it! PLEASE put it back the way it was, with character & self-expression!

You should edit the app to where you can delete comments and work on the home page in the app. Sometimes my news feed doesn't pop up as soon as its done and I usually don't see it at all.

Rachel said...

Polyvore, why did you change item pages? It was so cool to see all the unique sets that were made with a certain item. I don't want to see similar items. This is so disappointing and makes me angry. The new item page is completely awful.

ayesha said...

can i just say that that i loved the old profile page and was much better than the new one,PLEASE DON'T CHANGE IT!!
