Re: New design 2017 feedback thread

Did I get restricted for image uploads? Or is it bugged

The site is faster, but the landing page for your home profile gets really long and super scrolly to get to the bottom, unless you just hit 'end'

 

maybe headers instead of full post?

I've got the forum open on Opera, FFox, Chrome and iE, Edge, on PC I'll try Yandex when my carrier decides to give me network access again...

 

I like it, more solid color so it's easier to theme dark without causing epilepsy

 

 

a short cut in drop down menu for albums would be good on our avatar button

 

 

and are the chat bubbles meant to be like that or is there a padding issue... oh wait... there is... i can see it in the firefox window

Re: New design 2017 feedback thread

Thanks for the feedback NeoBeum

 

About image uploads. There is a pre-moderation on image uploads. I saw that your image is approved now so i hope that was what happened. Can you doublecheck that your image is now uploaded.

 

Yes the profile page is indeed very long. Let us have a look at that and see if we can make some improvements.

However you can change your settings to not show so many topics. Go to my settings->preferences->linear layout you can for instance set 10 topics per page instead. 

 

Do you mean my photos when you say shortcut to albums?

 

Happy that you like the colors etc.

Re: New design 2017 feedback thread

I was shocked by the changes. I can not see anymore how many new unread comments are in a topic (used 2 c yesterday). When I get into a topic, it does not take me to the last (earliest posted) unread comment, it takes me to the beginning of the page where that comment is (it was excellent yesterday). Letters are bigger, so a lot of space used for nothing, a lot of scrolling (it was more compact and easier to go through, yesterday).
I use the phone's Support app, and it seems very inconvenient now.

The forum is not working on Chrome. It always gives ERR_TOO_MANY_REDIRECTS
Error. It works on other browsers like dolphin and Firefox but not Chrome

Yes on the avatar drop down menu, a shortcut to my photos or albums, what ever it is

 

and the theme is better because there is less black than before, which makes it better for the firefox add ons that turn pages dark

and i think the last cell on the table that does the landing page might not be in the right spot, unless phone and tablets is meant to appear next to the favourite topics

@Roadrunny76: hi, there is a setting you can change on the My settings page, if you like to be taken to the first post or latest comment.

Re: New design 2017 feedback thread

Thanks, but the option is ticked (meaning new layout kept my settings), and it takes me to the beginning of the page, not to the first unread comment. Any other ideeas?

We are currently having an issue with too many redirects. We are investigating it together with the platform vendor. We hope to have a solution soon. 

 

EDIT: @isbesheer we have made some changes that should solve the issue with to many redirects in chrome. It would be great if you also can confirm that it is solved at your end.

Re: New design 2017 feedback thread

Thanks for the clarification NeoBeum.

 

Unfortunately this is out of our control but we think it is an excelent idea and we will bring it up with the platform vendor.

 

Regarding the firefox concern we are working on it. We have managed to fix it for most of the other common browsers. Or it is at least a temporary fix that looks ok until we have a better design.
