Pushing the boxes around

Hi everybody!

It's Nick again, the engineer. I meant to get this out yesterday in time for Brian's post, but it wasn't quite ready. You can now rearrange the boxes on your channel with little arrows. Up, down, left, right. You choose where to put stuff! There are some restrictions. You can't move the profile box or the big videos box up top. But the rest are mobile. Remember you can add and remove these boxes from the "Modules" tab up top.

Minor detail: you won't be able to see the arrows on a black background. I'll fix that soon, I promise!

Another detail: this is one of the few things that "auto-saves". As in, if you move boxes, no need to hit a save button, it'll save as it moves them.

Party on,
-Nick

  2. The search box won't work while on my profile, why?

  3. Thanks! I want to switch to the new version badly! But when I switch over, it features an old deleted video that isn't functional anymore?

    Can anyone kindly repair this for me so that I may switch over!

  4. My videos don't show on my channel page, nor are there any links to my videos. I can get them back when I go to the old channel design, but nothing I've found can get the video module back onto the profile. Can you add a "show or hide video module" to the Modules tab in the channel editor?

  7. Oooh great. This solved the problem I was having with not being able to get the modules back again after taking them away :3 thank you!!!

    But things that I still dislike is that
    the "awards" you get are still not shown on the new 2.0 channels.

    The subscribe button needs another bright colour :3

    The name of the channel needs to be bigger.

    Keep up the good work :3

  9. I love the new profiles but I accidentally stumbled upon a bug to the new arrow features. I moved one of my boxes to the right (cool) and then all the way to the top (oh crud) which pretty much screwed up my profile. Noooooes!

  10. Ack, sorry for the double post, but it appears that it's been fixed. Thanks! :D

  11. Great stuff! Keep the updates coming! :)

  12. Arrows work fine. Any reason why the profile box with my name etc doesn't remember the settings after I've saved them? I don't really think I need my age showing, I've changed it not to show (unticked), but the settings never stick.

  14. New channel beta is really nice but can't add extra modules and i can't change the vlog setting in new channel beta. Hope this will be updated soon.

    Oh yea, at the same time i changed to new channel beta, i feel like "ohh... the classical youtube is gone." but anyway, things gotta change as time past. Looking forward for more updates. =D

    And, if possible please add an options for users to move the Edit Channel menu to the bottom or hide it because when i view my own channel, it doesn't look good. Hope the top navigation will be changed soon or later, IMO it doesn't fit the new channel.

  15. when i click the revert button, my channel does not revert, it still stays the same new design.

    Channel name: homersours

  16. I want to switch for the new account!!!!!! :D

    ReplyDelete
  17. Thanks for the update. Here's a few things I picked up on just now.


    [1] I had a quick look at the "Subscribers" and "Subscriptions" edit function, and tried to change the value from "1" to "2" and "3". After saving the changes & refreshing, it didn't update. Might be a bug there.


    [2] When you upload a picture, it displays fine now (good jerb, people). But, when you try to change the background to a different scheme after this, it won't let you keep the previously uploaded picture; it seems to gobble it up. Might want to look into that one, too.


    [3] Finally, I just linked my blog to my channel in my accounts section, but I haven't been able to find a way to link to my blog on my user page (ie a special 'blog' link, kind of like the current 'website URL' link). Currently, I'm listing it under the channel URL link, but is there (or will there be) a way to get some kind of separate 'blog' link going?


    Thanks for your efforts thus far. Once some more bugs are ironed out, then we can start looking for grander modifications. Remember people, we've signed on to help with the beta; not (just) throw spanners at the poor engineers. Give constructive criticisms/bug reports, or revert back and let people get on with fixing the cutting edge stuff.


    Peace.

  18. URL's need to be clickable in Video Descriptions!!

  19. I actually saw that and clicked on one of those arrows to see what it did. I admit, I was a little confused at first but once I saw what it did, I knew what it was. Thanks guys.

  20. thats all fine and dandy, I like the new channels BUT:

    The SUBSCRIBE BUTTON CALL TO ACTION is now non existent. It blends with the page instead of sticking out. You need to change that back to what people are used to: YELLOW or go a step further and animate it or something.

    This new format is very nice, state of the art and impressive. BUT, do not forget the one simple thing your whole business is based on. THE SUBSCRIBE button.

    I feel like the new channel is an impairment instead of an improvement without sufficient SUBSCRIBE call to action.

    Using this platform I am sure New Subscribers will only trickle as the user has to search all over looking here and there to try and find a way to subscribe.

    I have a good idea, why dont you add a little slider at the end of each vid that prompts the viewer to subscribe. Such as: "Would you like to subscribe to this channel?"

    At the very least make the channel button Yellow again.

    Cheers, Hope this helps

  21. I was playing with the new movable modules and am afraid to say I have messed up my channel, I am currently reverted to the old design, you can see a video of what I mean here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KCjcbUdBsKI

    I'd appreciate any help on getting it back to looking as it should.

  22. There doesn't seem to be any logical way to change my channel's featured video, I mean, I could do this when I first joined the BETA and everything was reset, but i've searched around and I just can't find a button or link to change the URL.

    If there is a way YouTube, it's too difficult to find, could you please make a simple 'Edit' link like the rest of the modules have please.

    ReplyDelete
  23. the only problem i have is that i dont see any of my videos, favorite or playlists on the main page

    ReplyDelete
  24. Can you please get my featured video to show on my channel again? It shows when I revert to the older version, but on the beta one it completely disappears.

  25. I like the update, but my channel is STILL not working. My featured video is not my own (random videos) , and you can't see any of my uploads, favorites, or playlists on my channel. I am forced to stay with the old design until this new bug can be fixed.

  26. hey
    awesome job so far
    i believe some transparency options would be nice
    and the ability to select a video default
    and the ability to have links in our channel description besides in the website box
    and the separate color option for the subscribe button
    awesome so far
    check out my channel!

  27. Well, I don't have that luck to try this BETA version, but Knight-Nui, where I'm a moderator, had and generally I like the thing, but I've noticed one thing. Embed code is not simple embed code anymore and it doesn't work with HTML module on spaces.live anymore. There's also not the possibility to click on the title of the movie on the channel so you would be able to go directly to that particular video and take the embed code from there (that one works for the record). So it would be much better if you wouldn't change this part of the whole thing. That means the titles of the movies should still serve as the links directly to the particular movie and the embed codes shouldn't be changed anywhere into some "span" versions of it. The work refreshing the other sites with the latest on our channels would be mcuh easier this way.

    Well, thanks for taking action in advance (if you would reconsidder to change this thing back "to normal").

  28. I think it's great except for the icons in video selection box are way too small. Could you make the icons larger and show the video ratings in the video selection box? Also it would be awesome if you would bring back the transparency option.

  29. Hey! Nice stuff you got have C:

  33. my background is still broken!!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  34. I like it, but as noted, subscribe needs to stand out. Also, I think it is important the videos open with the comments, either in a separate page or on the current page- the feedback and community are integral to youtube!

  36. japanlover97, I said that too! We need the old bulletins, yellow subscribe button, and streams back in their own Modules. I would also like there to be a custom color option for the featured video Module, as well as changing the featured video! As of now, everything else looks amazing! I know this must be hard, Nick!

  52. I loved the whole concept of this ever since it's started.

    I was just wondering, in the user profile module, in channels 1.0, when I added a url there, it automatically turns it into an anchor. Is there anyway I could have this back, or at least enable anchor tags to be used within the profile module?

    ReplyDelete
  53. Another problem i've found; videos don't have annotations or CC on the channel.

  54. hey, what's up with the way too large fixed width?

  59. Hello there!

    I like the changes so far, I'm getting used to them quickly, and I think this will give us room to customize our channels even more, so we don't look like copies of each other and recognize channels even more easily. That's great stuff!

    However, I don't like how background images work. We have the option to repeat them, so they do not focus in the middle of the channel, under all the modules. But when the emphasis of the image is towards the center (In other words, where the important action/person/place/text/whatever, appears), and the image is somewhat big... There is no focus on anything. The image starts repeating itself from the center of the screen, instead of repeating from one of the edges, and the image is hidden by the modules and the limits of your own screen. I don't know if I'm explaining myself clearly, so I'm sorry if you don't see my point. I use a 1400x900 screen, so that may be the problem, but I'm not sure. I was trying to find some transparency option (I could swear they existed in the old channels) and couldn't find it. In my old channel this image wasn't fully viewable either (that would be impossible) but at least people knew more or less what it was about, and could choose to right-click and view the background. Now all they can see is a lot of navy blue, some flashes and starts and half a little face, lol.

    So I suggest that you either put those transparency options back (if they aren't there, maybe I just didn't find them) or give users the options to start repeating their background image from the edges of the screen (though this may not solve problems for BIG background images such as mine), and not from the center. And if you can do both, I will be very grateful.

    Thanks for listening.

  60. One minor problem I am seeing is the lack of a "delete a theme" button. I accidentally made an extra theme that I don't want to list anymore.

  65. Could you add a function where you can make a featured video? (One that stays there even if you upload another latest video, like in the old style?)

    I would really appreciate this.

  67. Absolutely great you guys are doing this! Thus far I have found only one problem with the 'Wrapper link color' option. I choose red, for instance, and all the links do turn red except for the 'Subscribe' button which after closing the 'Themes and Colors' tab turns to black...

    If I find any other issues I will give feedback.

    I have one request! Can you put more colors on the pallet, perhaps a customizable color :D? And please increase the size of background! At least to 500k???

    ReplyDelete
  68. Can you please comeback my channel to old style youtube? i am trying to do that 2 weeks or fix..when i click on "revert" my channel just change beta theme....

    ReplyDelete
  69. Another suggestion, can you make a separate "playlists" box, letting you feature the three playlists you want, like in old channels? For the sake of making them more visible and not always showing in the "All Updates" your oldests playlists (at least only the first three appear in this list even if I tick all boxes, people have to manually choose "Playlist" from the top of the channel).

    Thank you.

    ReplyDelete
  73. I hate it. I like to be able to look at the date on the videos, and more importantly, to go to the video page and look at the comments, descriptions, etc. You're making that a lot more complicated now.

    And you have a million videos of people pointing to the right saying "look at the description", why break that?

    Also, you're an engineer, why waste your degree doing web design?

    ReplyDelete
  74. I don't mind the new layout all that much BUT I really really really think that the comments NEED to be on the same page as the video. I'm not going to comment if I have to open another page just to get there.

  94. And here's another suggestion I've heard people say.

    The boxes which before where separated, now being together, make it seem like it's all cluttered.

    I THINK THIS IS AN ESSENTIAL MODIFICATION that can make a lot of people accept the new look a lot better, by allowing channels to customize the space between each box as they like.

    You make this and I think we can not only qualify this new layout as a CHANGE but, as well, a PROGRESS.

    I have no doubt you have tons of requests and suggestions for the beta. And I can imagine you have your own agenda/ideas but please read what we've got to say. There are many posts here which are quite sensible on this issue, others not so much. I trust you will be able to identify them and exploit each to the benefit of YouTube!

    As I said before, if I have any more ideas, suggestions or run into any other bugs I'll report them your way.

  99. These new beta channels are awful to me.
    I really hope you don't change them to look like this in the future as it's harder to find and do things on them. I can't really see my background as good as I could before because there's a huge box in the way!!

    Also there's no unsubscribe button now in the subscribers area so I can't delete people who no longer have an account, please fix this problem.

    Well, so far the channel looks pretty awesome!

    I'd like a yellow subscribe button, streams-in-modules, bulletins, "Groups", changeable featured video, and a different color for the featured video module, but it looks awesome!

    Keep up the good work, Nick! It must be hard to make these channels!

    other than that it's pretty much perfect.

  105. Will there be anyway to edit the CSS manually?

    That be nice for us savy with coding and design.. and want to individually change each box, so lets say the top wrapper color can be different than the bottom, etc..

    Also will there be a way to add a header image, like youtube partners, or will that just solely be for partners.

  112. I also think that it would be nice, even though we can't have headers unless we are partners, if we could choose how far from the top of the page our profile starts.

    ReplyDelete
  113. Sorry for the third post in a row, but can you guys please add back the transparent option... My channel would look lots prettier.

    Thanks!

  114. I cant wait for us to be able to change the Featured Videos. Thats the most important function. Thanks for all your hard work http://youtube.com/jrthegreat1

    ReplyDelete
  115. The only major issue i'm having is not being able to change the featured video on my page. Or being able to not have any video featured. Keep up the good work.

  116. with any significant changes,
    remember to always make them backwards-compatible

  117. Nice stile, but the featured video doesn't display the captions, when you open another one it shows ok.

  118. Hey Nick, my name on YouTube is Aeromano, and I can't revert out of Beta? Could you please assist me by hand doing it?

    ReplyDelete
  119. Thanks for giving us the new layout - I think it's great. The only improvement I would suggest is if the title underneath the video could have a link to the video's page on Youtube. I hope that makes sense!

    Thanks,

  120. Um, my background broke, I can't change one of my themes backgrounds now...

  121. Also along with the not being able to change featured video it would be nice to be able to have the featured video name clickable, like just below the video. As how it was with featured videos on the old channel designs. Makes it easier to get to the actual page of that video

  126. How do you change your featured video wile in 2.0?

    ReplyDelete
  127. PLEASE BRING BACK THE OLD BULLETINS! AND CHANGE THE SUBSCRIBE BUTTON!! THAT IS ALL I ASK FOR!!!

    ReplyDelete
  128. Please make the thumbnail images of videos bigger. The new thumbnails are smaller. Cheers!

    ReplyDelete
  129. I switched back to the 2.0 channels after I read that we could use BG images again. Loving the new layout, and I have fixed my channel the way I want.

    Can't wait til' more stuff gets enabled, but for a beta, it's looking pretty good.

    Already made background that goes with mine, might make a tutorial soon, or at least a .PSD

    ReplyDelete
  130. much harder to navigate. cant find the "most viewed/discussed" videos button. cant search videos on the page.

    and overall just kinda too complicated

    ReplyDelete
  131. MAKE IT SO I CAN CHANGE THE FEATURED VIDEO WITH IT, AND IT WILL BE PERFECT.

    Sorry, didn't mean to yell. : )

    ReplyDelete
  132. I re-uploaded my background image and it appeared as usual, then when I clicked save and closed the advance settings tabs it disappeared.

    When this first came out I had no problems with my BG image but now I can't see it... I'll wait a few minutes to see if it shows up.

    BTW my user name is MacManLtd

    Overall I love the New channel design =]

    ReplyDelete
  133. Oh LOL, Right after I posted I went back to my channel and my BackGround was there :P

    Thanks guys : ]

    ReplyDelete
  134. I may be blind but I don't see any 'beta' links or other ways to try this out in my account - is this beta still open? If so can you point me in the right direction? I am eager to try a redesign.

    ReplyDelete
  135. Not sure where to put this, so it goes in the most recent post.

    Where are the dates?
    As in, Date Uploaded that i am used to seeing next to videos?
    Please add the date back in. Hell, even just add it in the tooltips if you want to save space.
    But i'm not even sure if the space will matter since the box gets populated as you scroll.

    ReplyDelete
  136. feedback:
    can we customise the order in which the list of uploaded videos/favourites etc appear on the right, similar to how we could choose which of our favourites and uploads to feature on the front page in the old design. Also making the thumbnails of the videos bigger would be nicer. nice change though!

  137. In a desperate effort to change my featured video by going back and forth between the old profile and the beta, I somehow deleted the big video box from my profile entirely, and as far as I can tell, there's no way to get it back. I was just wondering if you could fix this?

  138. I'm with the "change featured video" crew. Also, what about transparency in the module backgrounds to see the background better...

    As an aside, how do i make a banner or header appear at the top like on your "favourite new sites" A nice shiny TimoTV title would look lovely.

    ReplyDelete
  139. I made an editable image tat works in Adobe Fireworks and Adobe Photoshop. Enjoy.

  142. A few bugs I have spotted

    1 with the search box when you are on your beta page, when you put something in that you want to search on youtube it wont work at all.

    2 today I was on my beta page and I noticed that the country has been changed and then when I go to change it back to USA, the United States of America isnt there.

    Please fix these bugs

    Check out my channel somtime: TheEnd004500

    ReplyDelete
  143. I'm liking this pretty much, although some things could be improved. I think the spot that says your username at the top shold be bigger and bolder, you kinda have to look for it. The subscriber number should be more noticable as well, since that's what everyone cares about.

    Otherwise, I like the moveable boxes, the giant video thing, and the scrolling stuff. I think you should have the option to have your videos in a seperate box thing like before though.

    ReplyDelete
  144. Also, I hate how when you click on a video on your channel, it plays in the featured video box, instead of taking you to the video. Taking you to the video maked it easier to comment, without having to watch the video and going to the main page with that video so you can comment. We need more comments anyways, the featured video hinders that, as well as the number of favorites, seeing honors, sharing, etc.

    ReplyDelete
  145. ohh and can u put the channel type like before for ex. musican, guru etc. and i disagree with YRQRMo. alot of my friends on youtube liked what he didnt like and i have like 253 friends on youtube

  149. The "Themes" idea is great however I would like to delete the themes I have created.

    I love the way that I can move the different boxes around

    Good job Youtube

    ReplyDelete
  150. I like the new layout. Good work from the engineers. But since I have switched I have recieved very litle response from my vids, i.e. comments, ratings, subsribers, compared to having the old layout. I do think that its a problem that the ratings and comments is not possible from the channel page. Also I would like to be able to see how many ratings and favorites my vids have recieved, from one location, instead of going through my vids to see that.

    ReplyDelete
  151. Forgot to mention that the automatic "next vid" feature, when watching videos from the new layout, makes is harder to place comments and ratings on the new layout. Also I think I found a bug, when clicking next on my subscribers page, the window is moving around and changing location.

  152. HAHA what? If you disable embedding your videos won't play on your brand new pimped channel. :(

    Fix?

    Note I had to actually sign out for it to report "Embedding disabled by request", otherwise it just said "An error has occurred".

  153. Oh yes, I am also getting annotation mismatches between my videos.

  161. I'm checking this update on some user's channel and I can't sort their videos by Most Viewed or Most Discussed. Neither can't I see the rating below the view counts. I think this takes a lot more from channels than it gives.

  162. I also did a real cool try of the BETACHANNEL. IDK How long I would have this up but it seems pretty cool :D

  164. i really like this new channels layout, however i used the sort by most viewed/discussed feature frequently and would really like if that option was available on the new version (maybe it is and i dont see it)
    it would also be cool to have the ability to sort by top rated/length as well...like you are able to when you go into your account settings section

    I always get comments about my channel PLEASE

    ReplyDelete
  169. Ok, not sure if this was asked or not but you know how when you save a design, an icon for that design pops up? It would be cool if we could give names to that and if other people wanted to use that background could just type in the name and use is as well...just a thought...~Raven

  170. I tried the new design, and like it a lot.

    For the time being, I have reverted to the old format. My main quibble is that the new design makes it more difficult for channel visitors to navigate my videos. I think ease of access to the videos should be THE primary consideration in any re-design.

    Being able to move the boxes around is nice, but it can end up giving too much prominence to Subscriptions, Subscribers or Friends lists, at the expense of the Uploaded and Favorite videos, which is what most visitors want to see.

    Great project. Best of luck, and thanks!

  171. Ummmm... How do you change the featured video?

    ReplyDelete
  172. I have jsut recently come across a channel using the beta design.
    My only quibble is that it makes it alot harder to see when the videos were posted and for someone like me who watches blogs and likes to find new people to watch, its hard to backdate and see what has been going on.
    If the date of the videos were on, or they were always listed in chronological order it would make it alot easier!!!

    ReplyDelete
  173. Elli21486, don't do it! This is exactly what I did and it made the video module disappear without a way to make it come back.

    I'm still wondering whether this will be fixed or not for everyone who's experienced this issue (including me) quite soon in the future...

    For now I've also reverted back to the old look, because otherwise people can't see my videos! :(

    What it looked like:

  176. AND JUST CHANGE THE FREAKING SUBSCRIBE BUTTON!!! You see people all around this blog saying "change the subscribe button!" but I'm not sure if you're even doing anything about it! WE'RE the ones who use YouTube, so just listen to US for once and CHANGE THE SUBSCRIBE BUTTON!!! PLEASE!!! I'm sure that we ALL want the Subscribe button (and many other things as well) changed BADLY but all we can do is leave a comment on your blog! YOU guys are the ones who have to take action on that and CHANGE THE FREAKING SUBSCRIBE BUTTON! If you guys don't start changing it soon, no one will want to subscribe on our channels and we'll have no choice but to revert to the old channel! So, PLEASE, do YOUR part and change the Subscribe button! And soon!

    ReplyDelete
  177. And that "auto-save" thing? Bad idea. LOTS of people are complaining because they messed up their channel and now there's no way to change it back. You should be able to PREVIEW your channel when you move your boxes and THEN save it.

  178. Cmon let us change our featured video! Mine is some rap garbage, its embarassing to have on my page!

  184. Elli21486: there is no way to change featured video using the new look, you've got to use the old one. Thing is, I did that, then went back to the new look. The video module never showed up again. Now it's gone forever it seems, and switching back and forth, changing videos, settings, whatever, doesn't work.

    ReplyDelete
  185. It looks like we can change the featured video, now... or at least I was able to.

    ReplyDelete
  186. Hey. I am pretty impressed with the channel betas and after reading some of your guys commments you convinced me to bring up one or two issues I have found.
    1.I think (like the others have said) that we need some kind of editable 'Subscribe Button'. I was thinking maybe a list of desings for it or maybe even upload a button? And to change the name E.G. Subscribe to 'Please Click >'.
    2. I cannot change my featured video on my youtube page. Whatever I do doesn't work. I try reverting back to the old youtube design then going back to the beta, but no.

    If anyone can help me fixing my bug on the featured video can you contact me on my youtube:
