Personally I preferred the old version, this is very confusing now & difficult to read older posts or even see what’s new. 

Cant see me sticking around tbh, which is a shame as I loved reading about everyone’s daily escapades. 

Is this giving you what you need? I'm able to keep tweaking this until we have it so we're all happy. This system is much more powerful, secure, mobile friendly and future proof. Instead of running off just guide me!

I'll make a full announcement once i've worked through my growing list of feedback. Thanks everyone for being so great and apologies for the lack of warning. I'll explain in my announcement later. 🙂

Yes!  It is coming along nicely now :)

We are lucky to have a forum and while I could probably head the charts in grumbling I, for one, really appreaciate all the work you are doing :)

C'mon Caps & Chapettes

There are always some teething issues with a major upgrade.

I am sure we can let Tait and the lads know what we are "missing" - and once that is sorted I am sure the "nice to haves" can either be sorted or possibly we will be a bit more used to them so they'll seem less important.

Remember the strength of the Forum is "us" the users - the technology is just a vehicle!!!!

NB: As Tait already knows - I am not happy with the actual implementation and the lack of communication (and possibly testing/UAT etc)..

BUT that is water under the bridge - Let us all pull together to to go forward.......

I look forward to the PIR/Lessons learn sessions ;-)

Any chance of a slightly darker skin option? All this white is giving me a headache.

I'm a fan of this change, thought the old style was a bit dated, this is much more new internet.

Eeesh, Yuk, I feel like I have been forced onto a 24" phone, I cannot find anything and in particular I cannot find settings for such things as a dark theme. This just hurts my eyes. I was still using the older choice before because of this.

 

I guess that eventually we will have all the features we had before and then some but right now my eyes are bleeding

Agree with a change in skin colour, the white is a bit much for me personally.

Thanks for spending the weekend doing this.  

I guess only oddish thing is using Firefox (i didn't notice with Chrome) the pages display first what looks like a style free version of the page missing images, then it renders the page correctly.  See attached (well "attached below")

Many other minor "my preference" things i'm sure will come out like

  • Someway to customize colours per account.
  •  I prefer to read threads in reverse order on some forums, i can't see if that's possible,
  • So many new emojis (and the old favorites are at the bottom  :coffee::good: under Generic Smilies - perhaps they could move to the top?) 
  • Some way to auto-save a draft post, so if you leave the page you can come back.

My coffee extraction has not been affected by this so - all good :good:

Look to the bottom of the page, at the footer, below the advert. Here is a drop-down option for "themes" you can choose to change between. We have not added to this yet, but a dark option, in-between (colour tbc), white and current good ol'hessian could well be theme options we add.

Nice one Nate, thank you and keep up the strong effort.

Little grey "button" next to the Thread Title.....

Hover over it says "Go to first unread" or something similar.....

(Safari on a Mac - dunno about others)
