A Little More on the Changes and Glitches and What I/We Would Like to Be Changed and Fixed on Virily

In my previous posts, My Findings and Thoughts on the New Virily Layout – a Thorough Report on Some of The Changes PT. 1 and My Findings and Thoughts on the New Virily Layout – a Thorough Report on Some of The Changes PT. 2 I wrote about the changes and glitches following those changes on the site so here I will just add some more info about some of them and some NEW ones…

– The Newbie” thing seems to be on ALL profiles, including even the Admins’ ones so it’s probably some kind of a glitch or just the middle of the implementation process or if it’s a definite change then could be it’s just some kind of a new approach, so we’ll see…

– When it comes to missing posts – what I found out is that actually they are not gone but it seems that actually the Posts’ pages starting from page 2 till the pages somewhere from March this year are missing… There is actually just some weird order in them (the first page is different when you are browsing pages forwards and backwards even though the number of posts and pages is the same on both Posts pages…) like the system is just not SHOWING posts from certain pages but they do move and appear one by one on the second page as we are adding new posts so they will certainly appear later on that second page when enough new posts are published… It’s like the system isn’t showing certain Pages actually – not Posts…!!! How I noticed that is by looking at the Posts’ page 2 after adding a new post when one of the “missing posts” appeared…

– One of the similar glitches is the already well known missing photos glitch which I checked yesterday and noticed it happened on a couple of last Posts’ pages while there were a couple of posts on those pages where photos were there… Also, since we are not sure if the problem will be fixed (I tried contacting the admin and didn’t get an answer) and we’re now able to Edit posts I decided to edit those with the missing photos and post them again so don’t get confused when you see/read them…! 😉

When it comes to that there is also another (Story) bug…: my first post is a Story which contained a photo. When I opened that post there was a blank square of the image not showing. Before adding the right image I deleted the blank square, then added the new image and saved a draft. The picture was showing but when I tried to publish that post to see if the image will show it wasn’t there… Then I added the image again and published it without saving a draft and it was there, so that is another bug to be fixed…

I also had to edit my newest posts today because I forgot to add the photo caption so when I published them again one of them was immediately in the Most Commented ones even though it wasn’t actually “a new post”… I apologize for that but since edited posts are now published like they are new seems that will now happen often…

What also happens in Stories are some problems with text editing and I would also like if there would be Italic letters implemented…! It’s very weird we have them in Polls while not in Stories…! And adding Hashtags (everywhere) is still not working…

– There is also the bug with editing and deleting the “unintentional” drafts. “Unintentional drafts” are drafts that are created when you Cancel creating a post. The draft appears but there is no option to Edit or Delete it which should also be fixed…

– In one of the comments in the posts I mentioned above I wrote the Overview Menu section seems useless since there is nothing there but then I saw that is the place where the things added in the Widget Settings are showing so try it…

    • Yes, I think and hope so too… Yes, I am very happy for that too, it is really a great feature needed long ago…!!! Hmmm………, not sure that happens to me but could be… :/ It could be it’s also different on different computers, who knows… :/ 🙂 But I guess, like you said, everything will improve with time…

  3. There are some weird answers in the questions about Edited posts so I edited one of them now to be more clear… There are answers you Don’t Mind edited posts showing in the Latest and Most Commented but then you answer those two things Should Be Changed so it’s not logical…

  4. Many times I asked Virily to correct posts with missing photos. they look weird and I think google sees it also, we lose visitors because of this issue. So, I started correcting these old”weird” posts one by day not to abuse system and members with a flow of corrected old posts. All other bugs we see now in Virily do not bother me much, I hope they will fix them with time.

    • Yes, I know, me too, but never got the reply after they told me they will check it…!!! Yes, I agree, that is why i mind it that much too…! Those are my most important posts… Yes, that is how I’m planning to do it oo, and it’s also nice some new members to see them now… 🙂 Yes, I hope so too…
      Thanks!!! 🙂

    • Yes, I hope so too… Aw, glad you agree with me on that…! 🙂 Yes, I think so too even though some are seeing it in some negative way like abusing the system (like they see the other things too all the time)… 🙂 I heard about that but haven’t noticed, for me it’s always the same (slow)… ;/ 😀
