Question about the preferred display format of the Profile

Dear ProZ.com Staff,

When the new profile format was introduced, I set my preferred display format to Personalized as I really hate that new standardized info box on top (no offence). I thought that was also what others saw when they visited my profile. Apparently I was wrong.

I just viewed my profile while I was logged out and discovered that the display format was Standardized. I checked the profiles of a few collegues - all of them showed in the Standardized format, too. Then I logged in and everything was back to normal, i.e. I could see my profile in the Personalized format and the profiles of my colleagues in the format that they had chosen.

So it seems that the Preferred dispay format works only for the users who are logged in, which is bad news as I would like ALL the visitors (who come from Google and other search engines) to see my profile in the Personalized and not Standardized format.

Can we have such an option, please?

Best regards,

Joanna

Hi Joanna ,

The same happened to me just now.

I didn´t know. I had assumed that since I chose personalized, any visitor would see that, not the standardized version.

I agree with you and support your request.

Walter

Use this profile format as default Jul 27, 2006

Ciao Joanna,
first you go to Preferred display format
Personalized. That is right.
BUT then you have to go above besides of force visitors view
"Use this profile format as default"
Logout every now and then is good. Otherwise I would not have seen it.
By the way: I also dislike very much the standardized format.

Regards
Steffi

Force visitor view Jul 27, 2006

I usually click on "Force visitor view" to monitor what visitors see. I was happy because when doing so, I could always see the personalized version. That`s why I was sure visitors saw it too.

Only now, upon Joanna`s notice, and after logging out, I realized I was wrong. Or that something is not working properly.

That's what I always did. But today I happened to be using a different computer on which I was not logged in and that's how I discovered the awful truth Hope this can be fixed.

Maybe another improvement that cannot be discussed Jul 28, 2006

I'm really angry about this. Why do we get an option to personalize our profiles if it does not work. IMO Proz staff should start implementing features and CHECK them.

This would IMO make more sense than "improving" the services for us every few weeks.

Choosing profile format only referring to old/new format Jul 28, 2006

Hi Joanna, Walter, Siegfried,
now I am angry too.

I have logged out again and see my profile again squeezed into the annoying standardized format!
"Use this profile format as default"
By using this new profile format as the default format, users visiting http://www.proz.com/pro/youruserid will see this format instead of the old format (www.proz.com/?sp=partprof).

I thought it was about the personalized view!
Very strange: coming via Google (logged out) e.g. with dutch german translator I see the personalized view.
But via Proz.com it is standardized. Thats confusing.

And whats the whole purpose of "Use owners preference"?
This is ridiculous because against usability.
I don't now if the Proz Staff is reading this.
Do you remember the portfolio button? No reaction so far.
Should we collect signatures and send a support ticket all together. In personalized format?

Yes, I just logged out, found my Profile through Google and saw the Personalized view. So far so good. But when (as a logged out visitor) I come to ProZ.com and view my profile, the display is Standardized! I don't get it...

Fixed Jul 28, 2006

Hi all,

I tried again today. I logged out and went to my profile as a visitor and there was the personalized layout.

I just did it and it is working fine. It seems the problem has been fixed.

What about you?

Walter

No, not fixed Jul 28, 2006

I just checked it - when I log out and view my profile (and yours, too, Walter) the display is Standardized

I'm going to submit a support request about it.

Hi Joanna,
It is very weird. I did all that again and my profile was ok, personalized. However, yours is standarized. But you say MINE was also standarized. How come you see it wrong and I see it right?
Something is wrong.

Yes, place the support ticket and let us know about the outcome, will you?
Good luck,

Walter

Logged out other profiles standardized Jul 29, 2006

Thank you Patrick for letting us know that our voices are heard. I must be really tricky because logged out (just now) I see the profile of Joanna and Walter standardized.
But my profile personalized.???

Patrick and Justin: When I wrote that I was really angry, I meant not the PROZ staff, but the standardized profile which is a kind of a red rag.

Today Jul 29, 2006

Well, this is the situation today:

When I am logged in, I see Joanna`s, Tuliparola`s and my own profiles personalized.

Howver, when I log out, I see all of them back to standardized mode.

Hope you fix this.
Good luck.

Walter

/profile now defaults to "owner's preference" Jul 31, 2006

Dear Members,

I appreciate your patience.

Okay, now your /profile URL defaults to your "owner's preference". Originally, it was intended to default to your standarized version, but we've now changed that for you.

Thanks for using the site!

Regards,
Patrick
