Now you can upload upto 3 photos to any pattern review you write. No more struggling with the the thumbnails and photo URLs. When you write a review, the form looks pretty much the same except for a few subtle differences. Of course a lot is happening on the back end to make this possible.

Changes
1. Uploading of upto 3 photos to each pattern review.
2. No need to login when you edit your review
3. You can delete any of your reviews at any time. The way to do that is from the read review page.

Back to the review process
The biggest change is that the photos will now be added **after** you've submitted the review. This is true for Work in Progress (WIP) reviews as well.

Click on Publish or Choose to Save it as WIP


Click on the Button to load the form for uploading photos


Click on the buttons one by one to upload upto 3 photos. Choose which photo is the MAIN photo (this will be the thumbnail which will show up in the review gallery and everywhere else)



Go to your review


See the change here? Now clicking on any of the thumbnails will make it larger.



Editing your Photos

If you'd like to update/delete your photos, the steps are similar.

1. Go to your review and click on edit button



2. View the photos you've already added.


3. Make any other changes if desired, otherwise click on the publish button.


4. You'll see a similar button to edit the photos. Click on it and you'll see the form to edit/delete the photos. Follow the same steps you did to add the photos and click on Upload button to make the changes.


You may need to clear your cache to see the changes on your review.

I am brand new to Sewing Pattern Review. I cannot seem to find where people discuss the pros and cons of sewing machines. Could you please tell me where to click the minute I open up your website? Thanks so much.

Deepika, why do I keep seeing Latin?

Do I have a virus?

Your post above (OP) has Latin in it and the other day you had entered a review in the gallery of something you sewed for Dia (I think that is your dd's name), and it was in Latin. Then the review disappeared.

And I note now no one is mentioning the Latin in your OP so I have to ask myself, is this inexplicable strangeness just showing up on my computer?

I hope there's a non-virus explanation to this.


Oh, btw, these are most welcome changes to the review posting process although I am pretty much like a well-trained monkey in grabbing and hurling those url's at this point.

You do not have a virus. It's pretty common to use Lorem ipsummm... as a filler text so as to not distract the viewer.

Renen, she means that she was just using the Loren ips.. as a test- if you see that then you know the the content isn't the important part.

I attempted to delete a review using my IPad. From the read review page, I clicked delete. It took me to a login to "edit your review" page and stuck there. No matter how many times I submit the login info it stays on the login page.

OK - I went back to the review, clicked Delete and this time it took me to the confirm delete page and it worked...
