Welcome to the new whathifi.com!
English

Welcome to the brand-new whathifi.com. We've spent the last 12 months rebuilding the site from the ground up, adding more products, more pages, improved search, additional functionality and, for the first time, a full user review programme so you can submit your own reviews.

The site is fully responsive, so will automatically reformat depending on the type of device you're viewing it on - laptop, desktop, smartphone or tablet. We've put a large search box at the top of the homepage so it's easier to find the product you're looking for, and introduced new sections for the most popular products.

Price comparison is fully integrated into our reviews and you can now submit your own reviews of products you own via the User Reviews tab. Regular posters will have the opportunity to qualify for an 'Approved User Reviewer' or 'Top Contributor' badge if we think their reviews are up to scratch.

Please note that all user reviews will go through a formal moderation process, so may not appear on the site for 24 hours until they've been processed by our external moderators. You will receive an email confirmation when you're review has been uploaded.

We'd really appreciate your feedback, so feel free to leave comments on this thread or use the red Feedback tab on the right of the page. We can't promise to fix everything, but we'll do our best.

Okay.

Okay.

I'm posting from the beta site.

Liking the look so far, new message editor YAY

One thing about the editor when I return once, it seems to return 2 lines.

OBLIGATORY FIRST!!!

Site

Site

[strike]If you go to the Products drop down at the top > HiFi, the new page you're brought two shows thousands of products, you can sort by new etc but I don't see anyway to split it down component type ie speakers/amps etc.[/strike]

Forum

[strike]Going to the recently update posts in the forum, there's no way I can see to jump to the latest post in a thread like the current forum version allows. I can see that once you're in the thread you can click a button to go to first unread but it would be useful to be able to jump straight to where you've left off. [/strike]

Did you just fix that or am I imagining things?

Holymoly you guys are fast!

Search filters

Hi Anderson

To find the search filters, you need to select a sub-category as well. So go to, say, Hi-Fi then select Amplifiers and more search filters will appear.

Product search

HOT TIP: If you're searching for a specific product in the Search bar, wait for the auto-suggest to appear and then select the specific product you're looking for - that way you'll get to it faster.

Good point Gel. Your signatures from the old site have not been migrated across to the new one, so you will have to go into your settings (click on your username at the top of the page) and add a new signature.

It won't allow you to go into

It won't allow you to go into my settings to change it.  Something to sort out there.

Dates

Just a little gripe.

Dates seem to be laid out a bit weird on the active topics page but are ok when you go into the topic.

Good that now product reviews have the date that the product was reviewed.
