    The New Forum

    I've just logged into the new forum.

    It will take some getting used to even though I was one of the group that was in on the consultation process whilst the new version was being created.

    How is everyone getting on navigating yourselves around it?

    Where is the tab for latest posts? Or will active old threads now disappear into the ether?

    A new Brexit thread every 4 days?

    Cheers

      Like anything new, it will take some getting used to but in the end it will feel "right" again.

        Good morning all!

        It's a mixed bag and I'm sure it'll get better as time goes on...

        There are some nice modern features in there, like the ability to tag people (Thank for starting this thread Smith7 ) and the ability to upload photos should make it easier for some forum members.

        One of the things that I really hoped would change is the mobile experience. That has improved, but not as much as one would have hoped.

        There's now a 'like' button, which is nice. Emoticons are still there, still ugly, but many broken. Scrap it entirely and just let everyone use Emoji - the modern standard.

        Still getting to grips with it all, but hopefully there's more new good stuff than broken stuff!

        Big congratulations to CD for at least managing to do it within the scheduled time. These things often don't really go to plan!

          Is there an ''edit'' tab?
          My spelling often requires attention!

            There is an edit button on all of your posts. That works as before! ๐Ÿ™‚

                Thanks Duncan. I've switched to Chrome and can now see it. Firefox just gave me a lovely message when I tried to look around the site to find it...Error while saving content: SyntaxError: JSON.parse: unexpected non-whitespace character after JSON data at line 2 column 5 of the JSON data.

                I never was any good with techie stuff!

                  I'm now seeing more and more lack of attention to detail and lack of testing.

                  When I click 'post', I get a 'working' message but nothing happens. Reloading the page shows that the post has in fact been made.

                  They still have a ridiculous 90x90px limit for profile pictures, and I can't even seem to upload one at that size.

                  Some other visual issues attached.

                      Well designed software shouldn't require you to be 'techie', nor should you be getting JSON parsing errors while using the site normally. ๐Ÿ™„ ๐Ÿคฆ*โ™‚๏ธ

                      Some good stuff in here. I might make a new 'spam' thread for people to play with the new features as otherwise I'll be tempted to clog up Jill's thread! ๐Ÿ˜‚

                            I notice there are new 'post type' options, like this link type. I wonder how that looks...
