Very odd. I've tried rebooting the laptop and refreshing the browser, but still no joy, all the titles do actually appear on the tabs very briefly if I press one of the tabs...  puzzled

RE: What's happened to the site?

Why do you have to have a "Trending" bar?  No problem with the 'headlines within the bar but why call it "Trending" when the use of the word takes up space for no practical benefit.?  I realise that the word is very 'now' but it is very very sad I'm afraid.

The look is nice and clean but it takes about three times longer to load each page which is particularly annoying.  Using Chrome.

 

Edit:  Despite being logged in when I posted the above it threw me out and had to sign in again.  Lets have another try.

Odd, it's much MUCH quicker to load now for me, using Chrome, I'd say three times quicker if anything, it's been running like a dog for the last few weeks, that seems to have been completely solved for now.

Love it vast improvement. A lot clearer & faster load times, well done looking forward to further improvements.

so, based on a very small sample pool, the site's speed hasn't changed a bit...

RE: What's happened to the site?

Definitely faster so thanks for that  Smile Most of layout will probably just take a bit of getting used to, it's definitely cleaner and more modern. It's a shame the homepage doesn't list the OP for the latest forum posts on the homepage anymore. Yet to try out searches but that definitely needed improving. Will this change allow DACs to have their own section in reviews?

RE: What's happened to the site?

I like it. A few little niggles at the moment but generally an improvement, I'd say.
What's supposed to happen when you click on the link heading for each post? On my PC it leaps about all over the place...
