I'm sorry I have to agree with the others. I don't like it. It's not as intuitive. There is no active topics, which is what I typically use. I don't like browsing through forums to find hot topics.

The posting is easier on this form it appears though.

It really sucks like others have mentioned. But at the same time it probably satisfies the advertisers requirements, that's what counts in the end

Gnash von den Sportwaffen IPO3x2, AD, HOT
Brimwylf Creasy BH, HOT

Tried to use it again today, beyond annoying. I'll find some other site to read during lunch and breaks.

You can still read the original site, can't you? I haven't tried, just going by his description.

Also, the petguide mobile app is amazing. That's all I use. Try it

Second the petguide mobile app.. it is pretty awesome..

BUT I didn't actually find myself hating this new update to the site like most. But I have also only used the petguide app so this is the first time accessing the site from my phone.

I am with everyone who wants "Active Topics" added, though I think that might be covered under "Latest" in the menu. I clicked on that and it seemed to list all the threads in active topics. I'll have to play around with it more, but it doesn't seem that terrible to me. I have an S4 too and it didn't load slowly for me.

v/r,

I could get use to some changes, but having the reading window scaled down to about an inch of the phones 3.5" (est) width makes reading/scrolling a pain. Anyways, I finally managed to get the 3 horizontal bars on the left side of the screen to open up and give me the option to exit "enhanced view" now I'm able to use the desktop version again, so its all good....

On my phone there were 3 short white bars on the upper right and another on the left Side. The one on the left will open a window with the option to exit that view. The bars on the left are only on some pages, sorry, can't remember which. I tried to touch the bars initially and got nothing to open, they looked almost off the page a bit compared to the one on the right. I tried again later multiple times and it finally opened the window.
