uploading an mp4 doesn't work. It shows up as a link without a preview of the file.

Hi Maya,

 

Are you uploading it using a Classic template. I just tried to replicate it and the file shows as plain text in Preview but as an attachment once published. Does the attachment show correctly for you once published?

It is completely ridiculous that we can only post new portfolio items to our specialties. We are only allowed two specialties, but in reality may work on projects that don't fit neatly into our specialties. For example, the specialties I selected on Upwork are "Mobile App Development" and "Mobile Game Development", so now I can't post a portfolio item showcasing some other skill like "Desktop Software Development".

Upwork, this is absolute **Edited for Community Guidelines**. It's ridiculous to force those of us who DON'T HAVE SPECIALITIES to create specialized profiles. So now you've taken away the ability to create new portfolio items until we separate our profiles?? What the hell is wong with this site -- as if all your other **Edited for Community Guidelines** isn't enough.

Hi Brianna, and Sanja, 

I have merged your thread to this announcement post, as your questions were not related to the original thread where you posted a reply.

 

Regarding your question about adding portolio items to your general profile, please know that this is working as designed. This is to encourage users to create specialized profiles as this allow freelancers to better customize their skills and experience. You may read more about it here through the announcement post.

just tried it - and when I try to add portfolio item, I click on the + sign and get  "create specialized portfolio"  popup - if I choose "not now" I'm back on my profile page where I started...

Hi,

 

After having created a specialized profile, I tried to fill my portfolio section. I could not do it because each time I select a template and click on "Go Add details", a dialog box pops up giving me as unique option to reload the page, then the page returns to "Add Projects" creating an infinite loop. I am never allowed to enter to "Add details" section.

 

I tried to execute this action in firefox, chrome and Edge, wheather I clean cache or use an incognito windows the result is the same in Windows and Linux. 

 

I would appreciate to know the procedure to officially report the issue and have some feedback about it.

 

Regards,
