Bugs: Costume thumbnails, inability to archive

Post by stardancer » Sat Jan 05, 2013 9:05 am

I noticed today that most of my costume thumbnails have changed on my profile page, but are still correct when I click the "view all costumes" tab. Also, when I tried to archive a few older entries, the change did not go through. Not huge problems, but thought you should know. Thanks!

Thanks, I've fixed the problem regarding the thumbnails. About the archiving, how were you trying to do it? I click on the little book thing next to my costume in Tools, and it works fine. I don't recall making another way to archive them, but if there is, let me know so I can investigate.

Oh, I was going into the costume description and changing the status from active to retired in the drop down menu, then hitting Save / Update costume. The book works. Thanks!

Oh, there's a bit of confusion with that then - retiring and archiving a costume are two different things.

Retiring a costume just labels it that way - it means you don't wear that costume anymore.

Archiving a costume moves it into the archive section of your page.

The two terms aren't linked, so you could have a retired costume still showing on your main costumes page. Archiving costumes are basically for putting stuff that you wouldn't necessarily want showing on the main section, but still want it on your page for completion's sake. Examples include:

1. Crappy 1st cosplay or costumes with not-so-great photos
2. Cosplay you did as a favor for friends but wouldn't be caught dead in otherwise

Ah, ok, I can see where I made the mistake. All fixed now, and said crappy / favor costumes have been properly shuffled around.
