New Following Page Design

Dear Polyvore Community,

We recently added items in your Following page, and we’ve heard from many of you who enjoy this new way to learn about your friends’ style. We’ve been working to make this even better, and have made some changes based on your feedback:
New Following Page Design


  • We’ve included more items on the page so you can discover more of the products your friends love.

  • The items are now smaller so that sets and collections are easier to see.

  • Newly clipped items will not show up in the Following page right away. However, these are still public, and people can still find them on your Profile page.


If you're looking for a way to see just sets and collections from the people you follow, you can use the Creations filter.

Try it out and let us know what you think!

Love,
The Polyvore Team

Dear Polyvore Community,

You can now add hashtags in set and collection descriptions as well as in comments! Hashtags are a great way to:

Discover new styles: 
Click on a hashtag to discover new styles. For example, check out #SimpleOutfits or #Casual.

We hope you enjoy hashtags!

New Editor features!

Dear Polyvore Community,

We wanted to share a couple new features recently added to the Editor.

Templates: Move items between placeholders! 
Now you can rearrange your items easily by dragging them from one placeholder to another. (Hint: You need to drag the item all the way "out" of the placeholder first, then drag it back over another spot to see it highlighted.) Plus, when you move an item into another occupied spot, it will swap the items so they're both still in the set. That way, you can play around with the layout and pick the best arrangement for the items you've chosen.



iPhone: Add text when creating sets on the iPhone! 
We've made several updates to our iPhone app over the last few weeks, but in case you missed it, now you can add text in your choice of color and font when building sets in the Polyvore iPhone app! If you don't have the app yet, be sure to download it from the App Store.



We hope these changes will make your sets even better!

Love, 
The Polyvore Team

Removing Pinterest Quick Share Feature


Dear Polyvore Community,

We know that many of you love using Pinterest to share your style, and that you inspire many more people when they find and repin your sets. That's why we made it as easy as possible for you to pin all of your sets and likes from Polyvore.

However, this week Pinterest asked us to remove these features until they have an official API because sharing your Pinterest password and login with any other website is a security risk.

We respect Pinterest’s decision (we don’t want your accounts hacked either!), but unfortunately this means you will no longer be able to directly connect your Pinterest account.

You can still pin any set or item using the "Pin It" button or the bookmark in your browser.

We hope you'll follow us on Pinterest and keep pinning the great things you find and create here on Polyvore!

Love,
The Polyvore Team
