Reviews Update!

Rate this Entry
The review section has 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. There is also a new Reviews tab on the main menu so you can easily access the latest review.

Main changes

  • You can now edit your reviews. There is a limit on how many edits you can have, but you get extra edits if you are a Basenotes Plus member.
  • You can hide reviews if you wish, so no need for all that 'this review is under revision' gubbins.
  • You are now able to 'report' reviews that may have slipped through the net.

Bugs

If you come across any bugs, please report them here

Note

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

    If you go to a persons profile, and click View Reviews, you can see a page with their reviews on.

    Thank Grant. But what i mean is, for example.

    Go into foetidus' profile, and click on his review.
    http://www.basenotes.net/fragrancereviews/1658

    It wont show every review of his one one page. Instead it will display only 30 reviews. That way, if , for example, i wanna find his amouage review, it will be impossible to know what page it is on.

    Cheers.

    Or one other option is to filter the reviews by house.

    Good point, and index of fragrances reviewed by a member is probably helpful. I'll add that to the to do list (Or at the least an option to sort by house)

    I'm not sure if it's an actual bug, but I submitted one small edit for my review of Amouage Dia yesterday, Nov. 13. The correction shows up on my reviews page, but not on the Dia page. I thought this might be a matter of having to wait for it to be approved, and that's fine... but then I noticed all of my reviews indicate that they were edited on the same day. I can't imagine what the ramifications of this might be, but I wanted to give you a heads-up about it.

    The fragrance pages, aren't yet plugged into the new system - working on that now...

    Yeah that doesn't seem too good. I'm actually working on that now!

    Hi Grant. Not sure if I just totally missed it, but when I look at a review, I don't see the summary of how many Thumbs up, how many neutral, how many thumbs down have been cast. It was there before. Any ideas?

    I am loathe to dump more onto your workpile Grant but I too am a little lost without the links to all of the pos/neutral/negs. It was a fantastic feature of the reviews and I used it a lot in the past. Earlier today even. xD

    Of course if this feature is now gone for some reason I'm sure I will live! D:

    Apart from this; It looks great, Grant. Well Done.

    Sorry, but clicking the link to display my reviews shows nothing except the "Reviews Updated" link to this page. What happened?

    Ok, it's been like 2.5 weeks now. I understand you'd like people to upgrade to premium, but this is not how you should run your website. Just my opinion.
