Admin: I was using Advanced Search. I like the additional search features. Those are great. Also the notifications when we are quoted so we can find those quickly. Your navigation is cleaner with everything now located at the top.

What I miss is the ability to go directly to a post using a search term rather than having to scroll through all posts in a thread to find it. But we still have that option when searching for posts by name, so that's half good

Overall, your designer did a good job. I'm testing it out on mobile and it works great. It's harder to use without logging in, so I can't just drop in and read without putting in my name and PW, but I understand why you did that.

Stone, is that puppy your Summer? She is adorable.

I like the new look. And I LOVE the new like feature!! Now if I agree with something someone says, I can SAY so by liking it, and not feel the need to directly respond to everyone and say so.

I didn't have any issue with the search feature. It took me to my result page which I felt was EASIER to find than before, and I was still able read snippets about the thread before opening it, so everything worked fine for me there. Actually, if it were at all possible, I would LOVE to see dates listed on the search results, and even have the results listed newest - oldest. It would help me a lot to find the most recent information.

After clicking on a few pages getting a feel for the new design, I've decided I agree with several posters here. I don't like the "Recent Activity" side-bar. I thought it was a good idea at first glance, but it started to bother me after a few pages. And like someone else said, it's a bit redundant to see the side-bar while viewing the actual Recent Threads page. Also, I was unable to figure out how to turn it off in my control panel. Am I able to do that as an Unsubscribed member?

[EDIT] - Nevermind, found it. I didn't scroll down far enough

It'll be interesting to see how the TAGGING system works. Looking forward to that

Overall, however, two thumbs up for the updated design. And I love the new banner, too!
Heya @CarolinaRose

^^ Example of tagging system, thanks for the feedback.

You can toggle the sidebar here, as a non subscriber it should only toggle Thread View:
https://www.germanshepherds.com/forum...do=editprofile

Toggle right sidebar
This allows you to turn off the sidebar on forum thread view pages.
For Premium Members, this turns off the sidebar on all forum pages.

Is there any way to make the read/not read colors something other than dark grey/light grey? Before we had orange when a thread was unread. And who chose the little pictures for each forum? Some of them don't really correlate.

I love the new banner- although I wish a certain photo of mine had made it


Not thrilled with the format of the page - it was fine and easy to read before....now it is rather generic and too small text wise.....and the side bar is annoying

I like the new banner the rest I'm not sure?? But it goes along with Windows never ending updates ... right now my Windows 10 laptop is upgrading to Windows 10! :

But everything "here" still works so we will see.

Whew--you guys had me scared at first! I was trying to post all my displeasure with the new, 'faster' design, when all I was experiencing was VERY slow, a lot of ads, freezing up, etc. I tried to post, and then had to log in (had it set up so I didn't have to before), it completely froze up, so I quit my browser and opened it again. I was now logged in, and now I'm not getting the ads and 'suggested topics' (some of which were questionable), so, much of what I was going to complain about went away. However, the fonts are tiny, and I don't know how to fix that--I'm squinting to see what I type, lol. Meh. Going to take a LOT of getting used to. Seriously, though, if people who just come on to the forum and aren't registered, if they experience what I was experiencing, they won't be back, I guarantee!

The one improvement I would have liked to have seen would have been the ability to either copy and paste or to insert a picture into PMs without using an outside site like that which is capable while doing a regular post. I don't like outside sites because I don't want to have to have one just to post pictures in private and I do not like when outside sites are used and people later take down the pictures as this negatively impacts messages.
