I wish We're Related would ...

let me rearrange order in which relatives appear

I arranged them initially, but now that I've added new relatives (cousins of hubby), they appear above hubby, mom, sisters, etc. in the box on my main profile page and I can't find a way to rearrange them.

    We’re working on it and hopefully we’re close.

        Sure would like to rearrange order in which relative appear. Currently, there is no rhyme or reason for order. Please advise ASAP when this is done.

        There is no SAVE button on the page where relatives are rearranged; consequently, they remain in the order I've placed them on that page BUT they will not reorder on my Facebook proffile page as they SHOULD do.

        Allow the box to stretch as relatives appear. I can only see the very top edge of a relative I added a few days ago. Can't re-order them if you cannot see them.

        That's weird, my wife and I were able to reorder our family members on the My Relatives page/tab (not in tree view, of course)... seems like the new look has also fixed a few obvious bugs (like this reorder feature and the family stream, among others). Anywho, if you're still having reorder issues, maybe it's a cookie or cache issue... try another PC, if possible (just for comparision); that worked for me on another issue in the past.

        My Son is at the bottom of my family and I have tried over and over to move him to the top by my husband and I have yet to get him moved. I am to the point that I am sick of We're Related and not far from saying to heck with it and not using it any more. FIX THE PROBLEM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

        This is an ongoing problem......and I am both comforted and disturbed that I am not alone in having the same problem. With SOOOOOOOO many of us having a problem re-ordering our family.....WHY HAVEN"T YOU FIXED IT?????

        we're related seems to be having relationship problems. if they're not fixed soon i'm dropping out. i can't correct a relationship designation. ditto "reorder". it acts like it's working, but when I leave and return it's back to the way it was before. an unreliable feature is worse than no feature. if i can't trust the software to do what it says it's going to do, then why would i bother using it?

        I have been trying to re-order - REARRANGE - my relatives - it's NOT working - it WILL NOT save them after I've rearranged them - WHY??? When I go to my PROFILE page they are back in the order FB chooses, NOT the way I chose them! PLEASE FIX THIS! SOON!

        after losing my rellies, managed to get them back but now won"t let me re-order or add relationships. Considering deleting application altogether.

      • Joe Rose commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        I've also never been able to re-order my relatives, or to assign a relationship for that matter (but that's a different discussion). There doesn't appear to be any way to *save* once I've rearranged my relatives. In any case, nothing changes. "We're Related" really needs to be fixed so that it works properly for everyone.

        I keep trying to rearrange my family members and add the relationship, but once I input the information, the site will not let me save anything. Is it me? Am I missing something? The rearrange button appears on the top right side of the frame, but when I start to make the changes, I cannot select the save option. HELP!!

      • nsoriano commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        there used to be a re-arrange button somewhere but has long since gone. i want to use this app but i find that I can't even rearrange my original 'relatives list'. bummer !

        What do you mean by "the actual "SITE" profile"? Where is it? How do you get there? How do you arrange the relatives?

        What do you mean by "site" profile?
        I was excited to find this app but it's now getting annoying to navigate.

      • brianramos commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        Ok, I got mine to work finally. The key is to re-order on the actual "SITE" profile. Go there and rearrange your or re-order your relatives and it will show up on your main profile page on facebook. I hope this helps, because I stumbled on to this with NO help from this application's site. Have a good day, all!

      • sueschreffler commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        I guess you just aren't going to fix this problem. I am ready to remove the app from my fb. Why have the option to rearrange if it doesn't work ??????????????
