    Default How do you change the longevity stars on a fragrance?

    Sorry for dumb question but I can't figure it out.

    To my knowledge and I'm sure a more knowledgeable member could correct me...... this was an old wardrobe function that was taken out some time ago. Not because they wanted to, but it was neccesary for the site because of a server upgrade or something like that which was absolutely needed. They have promised that the function would eventually be back but it hasn't happened yet. I know that they are working on it but it is hard to conceive that it has taken this long. However, it is hard to bitch about it when there are so many things that are "right" about this site. I would never hassel them because I know how hard they have worked to get this site where it is now. I take them at their word that they are working on it and leave it at that. That being said, I can't wait til it is back because I am always curious how frags last differently on different people. I guess we'll see...

    It was a removed feature that hasn't been added back yet. However, here's a workaround... copy the link (right click > copy link) that is produced when you go to rate the fragrance by hovering over the stars, then change the red 5 to a 6 (example below) to denote longevity rather than rating (the last digit, a 3 in this case, will be your star rating)

    Ya gotta love a good workaround. Thanks much!

    And now for all of us on Macs: Instead of right-clicking on the star rating, use control key + click and then choose the last option on the drop-down window, “Properties.”

    A new window will pop up called “Element Properties” showing the desired URL, as in this case for Bigarade Concentree:

    http://www.basenotes.net/cgi-bin/war...i?5-26124934=4

    I changed the numbers as you instructed and YIPPEE—I've given BC a 3-star longevity rating.
    http://www.basenotes.net/cgi-bin/wardrobedo.cgi?6-26124934=3

    P.S.
    Adding: You will need to expand (drag wider) the Element Properties window to see/access the whole, long line of code, which you then copy/paste and alter (per red numbers example above) before hitting return.

    Oh, shucks. Since BN's latest software upgrade, the longevity ratings can no longer be controlled with the “6” designation as described above.
