I'd like to reiterate what others have said. We should be able to add projects to our general profile. It seems kind of ridiculous to not allow that. I really don't want to create more profiles. Can someone tell me what is the reasoning behind preventing us from adding projects to our general profile??
It is by design that there is no option to add new portfolio items to the general profile anymore. Freelancers who do not yet have specialized profiles will not be able to create new portfolio projects until they create a specialized profile. This update is also to encourage users to create specialized profiles as this will allow freelancers to better customize their skills and experience. You may read more about it in this announcement. Thank you!
To follow this logic (portfolio can be added only under a certain specialized profile), it means there shouldn't be any limit on the number of specialized profiles. Correct?
Probably it would have been a better idea to first provide a large number of specialized profiles (at least 5), and only then prevent freelancers from adding portfolio items to the general profile.
An update on how this situation has been or how and when it will be solved, would be nice.
A big thank you!
I'm having the same issue. I can't understand why this topic is shown as "Solved" when it clearly isn't.
If you click on "go to solution" there is none!
As the OP reiterated - you cannot choose nothing (or general) - you have to choose one of the specialised profiles.
The only way I can think to solve this is to dilute my one seciality and change it from Web Design to Web and Graphic Design. Otherwise the incorrect portfolio items will show up under one of my profiles (e.g. I will have to put Graphic design under animation or web design!)
A simple fix for the dev team - surely just add the general profile in the dropdown?
Hi Toni and others,
I'm merging this thread with the other one discussing the same subject regarding adding Portfolio items to general profiles only, which isn't currently an option. While your feedback is being considered, the process will remain as it is now for the time being. Please refer to the information we shared on the second thread and in the announcement post for more details.
Hi there. I'm trying to figure out how I can change the order of images inside of a portfolio item (NOT change the order of each category of my portfolio).
It seems that there used to be some kind of way to move images within a portfolio? But now, it seems that I can only move an entire category, which I don't want.
