New Wardrobes, no lion or witch though

Rating: 3 votes, 5.00 average.
The wardrobes have been completely recoded from the ground up. This is to make them compatible with the new site's backend. The recoding of the site should mean that things are less intensive on the server, leading to less crashing.

Main changes

  • You can now edit your wardrobe directly from your wardrobe, so you can rate fragrances, move them to wish lists etc. You can also mass-rate of move, so if you wanted to mark 20 fragrances as being 4 Star in one shot you can.
  • You can now edit the longevity rating and there is now a sillage rating
  • As well as designating fragrances as being owned or previously owned, you can now designate them as 'sample', so for those of you wondering where to list all of your decants and samples you can list them there.
  • The Swap List has returned. if you wish to swap a fragrance, you can put it in your swap list.
  • You can now delete fragrances
  • You can see when you last wore the fragrance, if you use the Today's Scent feature, as well as how many times you've used it (this feature might be a bit flaky at the moment)

Things to do very soon

As my main aim is to get the functions back on the site asap, I've left off a few bits to speed things up. I'll be sorting these out once things are back up and running

  • Ability to sort wardrobe
  • Integrate 'settings'
  • Fix bug, which renders some of the fancy codes in the intro's oddly
  • Add the images
  • Tags and keywords
  • Add 'total fragrances' count to tabs


Things to do later


  • Ability to add further detail such as
    • size
    • concentration
    • where purchased
    • when purchased
    • Cost

  • Make 'drobes downloadable to CSV format (so you can view in Excel)
  • Return of 'private notes' for fragrances
  • See who has fragrances on swap/wish list in directory
  • Ability to add mini wardrobes to your blog / facebook etc

Bugs

If you come across any bugs, please report them here

Note

You won't be able to add new fragrances yet to your wardrobe until the new directory pages are up and running, which (should) be later today

    I did have a little bottle of beer with my lunch today!

    Though it's not over yet. Just got to tie everything up with the fragrance pages and we can start adding reviews and things to wardrobes again!!

    This is so much fun Grant - like playing with a new toy! I'm looking forward to hours and hours of obsessive tweaking, lol. Thank you!

    So does Tried now equal the sum of your Collection + Samples + Owned lists? Or just Collection + Owned? (I haven't moved my samples from the Test List to Samples yet)

    Very, VERY cool Grant. The changes look awesome - can't wait to have the swap function back.

    This is very cool indeed, but, I've had my decants/samples
    written untop of my regular collection, now I can't seem to
    figure out how to erase them, after listing them at my samples
    list ... it's hard to explain, look at my wardrobe, and you'll know
    what I mean!

    I have the same problem, but I think that is what Grant meant by "fixing/adding settings". When that feature is added again, we can edit our lists and images in the wardrobe.

    if you want to change your settings you can go to:

    http://www.basenotes.net/oldwardrobe/settings

    it's the old system but it still works!

    Question: I remember that when we used to have the swap function, there would be a way to see everyone who had that fragrance on their swap list in a list form; Also, there was a list of everyone who had a particular fragrance on their wish list...This was usually accessible straight from the main fragrance directory page. Any chance we can see this again?

    Grant - great work! Thanks so much for enhancing this hobby for so many of us. Quick question - how do you edit the space for rambling thoughts in the wardrobe? You know, where we post our "Not in the Directory" scents or "decants", etc.?

    Thanks again.....from the Windy City!

    Thanks Grant, the new wardrobe seem much better.
    Do we have or will we have some functionality that allows you to add several fragrances at once? It takes a long time if you have to add a lot of new fragrances yo the wardrobe.
