I've not been following this

I've not been following this thread in detail so I apologise if this has been posted before.  However using IE11 I can't post emoticons, the box opens but nothing happens when I click and I can't close the box.  I also can't copy links into a post.

Same here (also IE11). "smiley" works kiss but "insert smileys" doesn't. I can close the box though. Lucky me.

Don't know why you've got two sets of smileys?

I'm getting word verification on random posts. Just a little irritating.

Sorted.

This morning for the first

This morning for the first time I have just seem the new forum on a PC that isn't running an ad-blocker.  OMG. On a screen running at 1440x900, two thirds of the initial real-estate is ads, what with the banners down the sides and the huge Google video ad at the top (which at least scrolls out of view as you move down the page).  It might be coincidental but the 'Active Topics' button refused to do very much until that darn Google ad had played through at least once. Funny isn't it on sites full of ads they can somehow always make sure the ads load-up absolutely fine, and if anything's going to bottle-neck at all, it's the actual content that you want to read, never the ads. Sorry folks, I now see what all the whining has been about. If this is how I routinely experienced the forum, I'm not sure I'd bother.

Panasonic side ads

I find the Panasonic ads either side of the page content is a real help with looking at the screen.  Black + colour and nothing moving around is much easier on the eyes.

Site loads much quicker now, including the Forums page, until you click on Active topics and then the wait is ridiculous, 10 to 15 seconds.  Any idea when you'll sort this out??????

The pages still jump around

The pages still jump around and flicker as they take ages to load on my iPad 4.

Impossible to even imagine

Impossible to even imagine that this terrible/awful site is the result of an effort 12 months-long. Juses Christ!

From what's been said on this

From what's been said on this site in the past, I think they've been working on this for rather more than 12 months.

Just thought I'd bump this as I don't appear have had my question answered.  Thanks.

ps. The forums ran MUCH quicker this afternoon, but they are back to being very slow again now.

I have to agree.

I find this new site terrible to look at. So much so that I rarely do.

It takes most incentive away to join and contribute.

Sorry.

New Format

I have to say the new format of the "Review" section is nearly unusable. It is so much more awkward to use than before. Hence I now tend not to use What Hi Fi as my reference for reviews of products.

Why do I keep getting an

Why do I keep getting an 'access denied' when clicking on the 'new and updated topics'?! And all too frequently I'm not showing as logged in, and when I click on 'log in'  it thinks about it and screws up! Irritating.

Still buggy as heck. I can't

Still buggy as heck. I can't create new threads. I had one disappear soon after the switch to the new site, and one again today.

I get a message saying I've created a new thread and get taken to the front/home page of the website, but there is no sign of my thread.

I also can't reply to threads on my iPhone. Gets all kinds of buggy when I try to enter the text in the box for the reply.

Stuff.

Forums

Most of the Forum pages were loading quickly over the weekend using my iPad at home, although it's true the Active Topics page takes longer than others to load as it has to update with all the new posts. I've got our dev team looking into that to see if they can speed it up.

I've tweaked your settings, see if that helps.
