    Default Issues with the new format

    I have tried it in several threads after finding it not working on a post I really liked, the option to hit Yes after Did you appreciate this post? takes you to page not found.

    Was going to edit the title to be 'new format issues' but it was not letting me edit the title. Can we no longer edit titles?


    The post reply button at the bottom still does not work well, you have to hit a very small sweet spot to make it work, like it was during the test period.


    ETA - I figured out how to edit the title. Use the Go Advanced option.


    ETA2 - The New Posts (now called Todays posts) option now includes everything from off topic and the menagerie. In the past New Posts did not include these sections.

    Largely I think the redesign is attractive, but the blue and red just doesn't work, visually. It draws the eye to the person who posted the thread, not the thread title. Sage green instead of red there, perhaps?

    The title field wraps text on the forum level, but not in the "Today's Posts" list. Makes it oddly difficult to spot things you're looking for because suddenly key words are missing.

    ETA: I see now it is because the forum the post is in is now below the title instead of at the right margin.... Still want my wrap back

    They used to be included before the last upgrade, and although I missed them when they went away, I now find it rather annoying and wish they would go away again. I prefer having the OT and Horse topics seperate.

    I'm annoyed there is an "appreciate post" button. This is not Facebook. I would like people to learn how to use their words...

    Ditch the red.

    Makes my eyes hurt. I can tell the diff between subject and poster just fine in the same color.

    I do not remember that. I totally agree with you. I am finding it annoying today because it is hard to find horse related things when there are whole pages of off topic stuff.

    Is there a way to change the font and/or colour? The red makes my eyes bleed. Between that and the pop-up ad at the bottom every 3 seconds, it's really difficult to actually read any content because of how 'busy' the screen is.

    Completely agreed.

    I haven't had any problem yet with Google Doubleclick filling my back button, but I'm disappointed to hear this upgrade did not eliminate it. I'm sure it will catch up to me later today.

    Are you still having issues with this? I was able to appreciate your post without issue.

    Thanks!

    "Similar Threads" table is completely useless and a waste of space.

    The red really is nasty. Too agressive.

    Font size is far too small. I also appreciated having thread titles slightly larger than date/time/op. ETA: Oh, it IS slightly larger. It's just the red making it "pop".

    I am also having problems with the post reply button. Gave up & used quick reply for this post.

    Overall, I like many of the changes and am confident the kinks will be worked out.

    Rest assured, we are monitoring this thread and investigating issues you guys find as you test out the new format. There will be ongoing tweaks and adjustments.

    If you're having a technical issue such as a page not found or an error message, please include what browser you're using, as that's sometimes helpful in troubleshooting.

    Thanks! Mod 3

    The font on the main forum listing is way too small.
