I can only presume from that statement that the old forum was the only forum you've ever used.

The old forum was by far and away the worst I've ever had the misfortune to use.  If you copy and pasted text into it you lost all the formatting.  Paragraphs all melted into one wall of text.  Nightmare.  The old forum code must have come from the Jurassic Period.  This is more up to date, faster, cleaner and just needs the odd tweak here and there.

 

faster you must be joking.

Well, from the feedback form

Well, from the feedback form "Hello, we'd love to hear your feedback about our new whathifi.com Beta (test) site"

So, buggy and half-baked is pretty normal for a beta, but getting us to do the beta testing isn't normal.

Hopefully it is at least saving them significant amounts of money Smile

Stuff.

I hope they bring the old site back but it isn't going to happen I think. 

Nothing wrong with change but this is such a disappointment.

Oh really? Except for you I suppose?

So in your opinion, anybody that doesn't like the new site is against change? Things can change for the better and things can change for the worse. The overwhelming opinion here is that this change is for the worse.

Can't even type more than one line for some reason, had to save and then edit.

maybe it will go like the Thorntree which was much bigger forum than this.

It's not working well on my nexus7 either. Slow, unresponsive and a bugger to read.

It also used to be the first thing I look at when have breakfast, and I now find it difficult to read.

Can't edit my last post now

Can't edit my last post now it took 3 edits just to type 3 lines, last time it froze up. It really needs sorting out.

I've got a hangover this

I've got a hangover this morning and looking at this forum is making it significantly worse. Seriously its an appaling piece of web design. Dunno who the got to do it but they should ask for thier money back - assuming it was done by a school kid as part of an ICT project!

Everyone who claims to have

Everyone who claims to have noticed a difference is clearly imagining it. The rays of light from your screen are tricking your eyes into seeing a new forum design.

Clearly a change of code cannot make a difference and you're all talking 'nonsense'.

Seriously though, in 5 years when they change the design again you'll all be crying for this one back. I've seen it hundreds of times and like I say, people cannot handle change.

new forum

The new site is a pain - sad to say - all my posts have not got through on the new site. I don't know if this one will.

Every time I key "return" it jumps an extra line  - i used to be a frequent,interested observer and casual poster. I can see myself giving up on the site now - it is just not "user friendly". Th older site had some problems - but in comparison the new site is just abysmal.

Another vote for site (I don't really care so much) and forum being disaster. Can't stand it. I just leave after a minute or two.
