New look very bad - classic just bad.
If the old site was 'buggy' just fix the bugs not change the whole look of the site.
The words baby and bathwater spring to mind.
#2
This Site Is Gash Now....


This Is No Longer Pleasant To The Eye Or Use Friendly:?

I prefer the "classic" view, the default view requires too much scrolling!
I used to get email alerts - not received any yet - has anyone else??
How do you go back to the default view?
#4
I agree that the classic is better but its just a poor option IMO
The whole thing is far too complicated for me, maybe the old site did have the odd problem but it was easy to see and operate where as this one has too many buttons to press.
Perhaps I'm getting too old for this surfing lark

Interesting that this thread shows as

My main complaints so far (even in text mode):
-Can't remove those stats, filters etc.. boxes on the right hand side (they are useless btw)
-The fonts are too big for the threads and take about 4 lines
-The "hot", "new", "discusssed", "custom" tabs are confusing - Makes me wonder whether I missing out on deals that aren't under the tab I'm on.
-Too much text everywhere
#7
Yes...the customs and views counts are broken...please fix it HUKD!!!
#8
classic view is much easier on the eye
#9
Is there any way to get directly to unread comments?
Things like the Official Wii thread are just unreadable now.
#10
link for classic view - the "text" link just refreshes the page :(
#11
classic view will do for me i guess. wow what a day on hukd lol
I think doing this a couple of weeks before xmas is a bit of a stress, especially for those looking for last minute pressies!! It's diffcult getting to grips with a new site!
#12
Still rubbish IMHO, go back to what you know UKHD. Please
#13
Classic view is no good either.

Bring back the old forum design. :roll:
#14
Classic view is the lesser of two evils but the whole redesign is confusing. The top navigation is very unintuitive now.

Yes I just realised there is!

Just underneath each original post on the left, there's a little link:

View First Unread View First Unread

Clicking on it brings you to the 1st unread comments!!

Classic view is not an option as it's just as sh1te, it removes all the pics and now I can't for the life of me work out how to change it back.

I might as well look at the RSS feed through bloglines.

Thanks HotUKDeals, but I'm off to find a site I can actually navigate without getting a headache!
#17
Tried the Classic View and it's not much better.

Why does there seem to be so much space underused on the site. It seems on every pages there are spaces everywhere to space things out. All they have succeeded in doing make everything appear cramped and inefficient.

Please if you are sticking with this layout, bring back the previous Forum layout as "Classic".
#18
nice oen OP.
with classic view its just like the old forum but improved..
#19
Agreed hate the panel on the right being in the sub-forum. Although I am growing to the classic view, site still needs some major tweaks and they shouldnt have rolled this out until they properly tested it.

Where do I start:
- classic view takes 5 minutes to update, so new posts dont jump thread to top straight away.
- Font sizes are a mess
- Classic view is showing less threads (25 now) per page than before. Sure this was alot more before.
- Error with numbering of pages
- Voucher section is a mess, should be listed by retailer.
- general slowness of site.

There are some good things e.g. viewing all sections in one list is good. But this new layout needs alot of work.
#20
Any one help on the following
looking to set classic (text only) as default ? ?
Also once in classic want to be able to go to last post in thread directly from main page not have to open page 1 then clicck last ? ?
#21
This site used to have a detailed view on the front page (showing pics etc) and classic view on the forum.

OK classic is better but I still want the front page on the detailed view so now I'm having to constantly switch between the two.
#22
I could choose the 'classic' view earlier - however IE is now cropping the right hand side so my banner just says 'What happened to... and therefore I've no link to 'classic' now.
At least when Coca-Cola had the disaster with New Coke and Classic Coke they had the decency to realise their mistake and quietly back track.

Totally agree. I for one will NOT be coming on here half as much anymore.

And why is the print so tiny on this message box?

Underneath the big red "submit!" button, there're some view options and you can choose text only from there

Cheers for that - 'classic' is so much 'less bad' (I know it's not English, but I refuse to use the word 'better')

Ok I'm all for change, normally but I think this was just bad timing! Just before Christmas.
I can't find anything I'm looking for at the moment & I'm sure I will the more I use it BUT it might take me till after christmas when I won't need to find a bargain. It does seem that lots of things will be improved which is a good thing but its soooooo different and will take some getting used to.
#27
I've switched to the text only view and it's a bit better. i still think the time team have chosen to make this drastic change was a stupid idea... Maybe we will get used to it? But i think for the time been im going to start looking for a new deal website. any tips?
#28
The classic view is a bit scrambled on mine, the text from a post sometimes begins 'underneath' the users' name/join date/location bit. Horrible.
