I've been out all day, and missed the launch, so a belated welcome from me. I hope you like the new look.

We are bound to need a couple of tweaks, and it would be good to hear what you think, but perhaps you could let me know via email, rather than starting a thread? Otherwise we'll end up with a batch of threads, and it may get confusing.

It's great to have a new site; I hope you'll enjoy using it, and perhaps join me in thanking the hard-working development team who put it all together - no mean feat with a site of this size and complexity.

Classic case of "if it ain't broke - don't fix it"

Surely this should have been properly tested before being launched on a Friday afternoon? Unprofessional to say the least but I'm sure it will be sorted out in time.

  1. Takes you back to the first page of thread after posting - why?
    1. You can't post again unless you go out of the site and go back in!
    2. Try finding the last page of a long thread - too much hassle, should be a button for last page
    3. Too much white and the page is spread out with a lot of wasted space.
    4. There's more I'm sure but life is too short.

Hi FE I like the new look it is clean cut and mostly clutter free. I have not read all the entries in this thread so not sure if this has been mentioned but I did notice that entries on the 'new products' page have been duplicated eg the entry re the new Olympus SZ-30MR Camera is there twice, this applies to several other entries. But definitely a thumbs up for the new look.

I am getting really fed up with being unable to access the site due to "Oops Exception Encountered". It is not much point in having a nice shiny new site if it cannot be accessed. Why introduce it on a Friday, then find the bugs and then wait until hopefully early in the following week before these bugs are fixed.

Change colours in FF - Tools, Options, Content, Colours.

Uncheck System Colours and Allow Pages.....

Pick whatever text and background colour you like.

I would imagine that with all the different browsers and OS's being used the best way to test the new site was to release it and let us give feed back and bring to the developers notice the 'bugs' there is no way they could have tested it in-house for all the multifarious users and platforms.

This has increased my productivity no end. Now I don't have to come here at all. Possibly the most unintuitive implementation I've seen in a long time. Well, I suppose you have to expect that with new technology.

Homebrew bulletin boards in the 80s (yes, 80s) were about 10 times as good as this. Risible. I'll post this if I can assume from the 1\4 of a box showing below reads "post"

Bye.
