New Look Forum!

Recommended Posts

I hate change! And I'd be the first to say I could grumble for England! When I landed on CFUK yesteday morning I wondered what the heck had happened!! However, 24 hours later I am starting to love the new look forum - everything is still here and easy to find once you get the gist of things, it is easier to post (iPad/laptop) without bothering with Tapatalk (which has its own anomalies), and I expect there are a bunch of other reasons behind the scenes for upgrading. Maybe when @Tait has 5 minutes he can fill us in on the whys and wherefores. I suspect we will see far less spam for starters. I expect he is beavering away improving lots of things to make it even better and posting what's what in between titivating the site and slurping a load of coffee.

Oh yes! One of THE most irritating features of the old forum was posting photos. It is a breeze now - adding a single pic or multiple just takes seconds (it is even easier than doing it via TapaTalk).

I am sure once we all get used to it we will wonder what all the fuss was about 😁

This is good. On a laptop etc just hover over the name for a box to click message the user!

It'll take some adjustment. But change isn't inherently bad, eh?

.... It seems to be layout mainly and sizing,  before when I was viewing the for sale section everything would be neatly laid out and I could see all the unread items that I've not looked at, but now I seem to be permanently scrolling and not being too sure what's read and unread as clearly as it was.....

Anyway I didn't mean to belittle all the hard work that people have put in creating this, It's just that I have no idea I change was coming I refreshed my screen and it was all change !

As Ihavelund says, change isn't inherently bad, eh?

Just ignore me, I 'll get used to it, sorry for being negative 😞

Kind Regards

I used to be able to look at a list of posts on one page and easily determine all sorts of info...like how many pages of new posts there are

 

Now it is scroll scroll scroll. 

I am sure that the phone users and tablet users are happy little chappies in fact anything with touch screen control but for the remainder we have lost so much

I for one like it, I'm not saying it's better or worse for that matter just I like it thus far and I'm sure eventually it will be enjoyed by many.

Just found something else. Downloads, for file sharing. It could be useful - I will test it out with a recycled quiz later 😁

Actually, this wasn't really available for anyone who wasn't an Admin @Rhys. I've now made it available to members but it's in "beta" meaning you may find some issues with it. Please report any graphical weirdness to me and i'll sort it.

All good in military terms 👍🏻, until I hit the reply button. On Android/DuckDuckGo Browser at least, CSS style did not transfer to text input box

Just a bit of a job reading my signature but as most folks will have blocked it anyway . . .
