Page Change??


Recommended Posts

   It seems like the older I get, the more changes are harder for me to make.  We are all "creatures of habit" I think, but many times the changes are an improvement.  I have now noticed all the Escapees forum pages have a different display, so I have either been hacked, or missed out some how.  I not complaining, just wondering which?  A little off topic I know, but the HDT forum is where I usually go.  Is the different look correct?   Thanks,   Dick T

Just found the search box up there on the right. I sure don't think it was there at first though. Oh well, glad it's back. I'm sure these "improvements" were made by somebody that knows a lot more about forums than me so I'll support the change. There must be good reasons for it.

I don't like the new format.

First, the "Announcements" seem to be at the tope of each page requiring one to scroll down before being able to read anything.

Second, the "Read New Content" button has disappeared, being replaced by "Unread Content."  There are lots of threads I don't read because they are of no interest to me, so I don't really want those threads to continue to come up just because I haven't read them.

It happened this morning. I went to log in and it  said things were being "updated". I have mixed feelings about the layout...It seems to have its pluses and minuses. Since I don't expect to have a voice in the admin of things I expect I'll just have to work with it and deal with the charges...

Where are you finding "unread content" ?  This new format sucks!!!

This sucks.  The forum was great and easy to use, now this!  I could see all my unread topics on 1 or 2 pages now that's not the case and I'm still fumbling around trying to figure out this surprise change.  Old farts don't like changes!     Greg

I now noticed my name is different.  Do I still have my old handle?  (oletimer)

To change your display name : find your handle ( name ) at the top right of any page and click the little down arrow ; click Account Settings ; on the next page under Settings , Overview , click Display Name . A new page comes up with a box that you can type in what ever name you want . Press Save .

That will immediately change the name we see on the forum , past , present and future .

I'm not a big fan so far either.  Also, my forum name reverted back to my original one for some reason.  I was able to figure out how to change it back.  I am really not a fan of the "unread content" vs the old "new content" search in the previous version.

 

Also, it looks like everyone's signatures are gone.

One thing I really did like about the way the previous format worked is that when I came back to catch up on reading, it remembered where I left off, and jumped there. This one seems to take me back to the top every time.....sigh...

I hate to say it as I usually like a newer format but this current one is about as bad as it gets. Anyway to go back to the old format?

Me too.  I've probably participated in over 100 forums in the past 15 years.  This is the worst format I've ever encountered, not intuitive at all.  I got lost just trying to read post since my last visit.  And, when I go back to the previous page, it's a whole new set of threads and texts.

Just discovered this hack job.  First impression is I don't like it.  But, I didn't like a lot of things early in the game....

 

I see the posts aren't numbered now.  That used to be pretty handy when making reference on a particular subject.
