crybabys crybabys why dont u give the site a few days before u actually scream noooooooooooooo come back old one

Everyone is gonna be not used to the new layout and features but with everything u must give it time then decide whether u like it or not

Ever heard a song first time and thought hey that sucks! after listening to it a few times u start to like it?????

i believe the colour scheme is wrong but lol its not that bad :)

Im used to the layout, still dont like it.
#2
funny how when I clicked on this thread 3 times I got this message:

Fatal error: Too many connections in /home/admin/domains/hotukdeals.com/maple_lib/mysql/mysql_connection.php on line 19

The irony of it!
#3
I don't care too much but I don't see why anyone put so much effort in to making a working functional site ugly and unstable :D
#4
im a user of Digg so im not new to this type of layout.. i just think it doesnt work on something like this.

Sure have the deals all Digg like but in terms of the discussion areas.. they should link to a proper forum
#5
is it me but i cant see my rep bar?

edit: wtf now it just appeared by magic haha
#6
could someone fix the RSS pleeeeeeease

the url from RSS is missing some bits at the end
#7
Well it's so bad it's not like a bit a tweaking will fix it.

But lets hope they do or I can see visits stats going down.

ask yourself why people use this site in the first place and you may begin to understand

The rep bar and the rep scales are missing from ALL the first posts in ALL the forums, it's one of the many bugs and omissions at the moment.

As to the new site, I agree the colour is awful but the site is usable with practice, whether the new code and features is worth the hassle I don't know yet.
#11
I also don't like it.
Hard to read and navigate. I also get errors every other link.

......I will TRY to persevere though.
#12
rubbish, very bright, hurts my eyes. text now very small. constant errors.
#13
Different I spose..
#14
I am slowly getting used to it .I am sure there are lots of positives its more annoying all the constant fatal errors .It seems posting a deal etc is better in my opinion .The only real thing i dont like is the lack of colour to make things stand out a bit etc as thats what i hate about mse .
#15
it's first day.. let's surf HUKD for couple of week than we will like it more :)

also people don't try to understand that it's a free to use site without any advt.
#16
it just is not the layout of a regular forum, auful for me
banned#17
I dont mind being called a cry baby, its the worst site i have ever seen,, and its like navigating through a pile of treacle when your blind, disgusting:x
#18
yep this is not good...
#19
Me no likely, really bad time to change over too!

Please can we have the old site back?
#20
Talking About Trying To Navigate Round A Site Ten Minutes In And I Am Still Trying To Locate The Forum.

Colour Is Bland Just Hate It.
#21
my opinion i like the new layout but i think the forum layout should have been kept the same and maybe the actual hotukdeals page should be the new style

Performance issues will be fixed soon and it'll be FLYING. :)
#23
but the site is usable with practice,


This is what I believe as well but you run the risk of losing visitors as people give up on the navigation before getting use to it. In the world of usability it is more of an "experts" interface than one for new users. The plus side to an experts interface is that once you are use to it it tends to be quick and give you easier access to more advanced features (in software) but this is only good if you are building something that is going to be used all the time by users or who are forced to use it (as in the case of mainframe systems that many old companies still use).

The forum layout is the same - you're just viewing it differently!! Click text-only at the top left of the forum homepage to see! Then navigate round the forums using the bar at the top :)

I just wish it would work.

Only just been able to get on late this afternoon after many internal server errors and too many peeps logging in messages.

It was only yesterday that we were testing the beta version - didnt realise the new version would be rolled out this quick:w00t:

Happy to give the new site a chance assuming Paul can do something about the error messages.
#26
So we can see the proper HUKD site back tomorrow morning, right? This is a nightmare and anyone who claims to like the new layout or navigation needs their head testing.
#27
If this works it'll be my first post that does.

Colour is awful, layout needs a little work. The only other problem i've had is errors whenever I try to post. Once all the teething problems are worked out I hope the site is better than ever.
#28
hi every1 i dunno about this!!! i will give it time one question why when trying to llok at deals like i would have in the forum yesterday i cant get it to be listed by last post time they are all jumbled mumbled my head hurts!
suspended#29
I know there are quite a few bugs with this new layout but the best thing about the old layout was it was very easy to navigate.When i first joined this site a knew what to look for & where but this new layout is doing my head in so IMO for me its very bad.My wife who is not good with comps she could navigate around the old one without a problem,with this new layout she gave up in 15 mins which says alot about how simple the other one was to use.Trying to get use to it but will take some time.Anybody know how to get emails back about deals as i don't get them anymore.
#30
ok i have worked it out click on discussed tab i had thought "new" would have been it never mind!
#31
i think more colour to certain things so things like quotes and buttons stand out a bit more right now it looks a bit bland and grey whites everywhere hehe
and i think it does not show last poster in a thread no more? not overly important but i seemed to like it
edit: oops it does i wasnt in classic view
#32
why do we want to see peoples for sale adds mixed in with bargains??

You can customise it to show whatever you want -

If you used to click “filter” and view all new deals on the old forum, you can do that here too. You just have to customise it. So, from the home page, click “customise your settings” on the right hand side. In the forums list, select “deals” and click the plus symbol. You can also add the vouchers and freebies if you wish, this will show you the same deals as the old forum front page. Or customise it however you want.

Leave all the check boxes at their defaults, excepting perhaps the “temperature threshold” – you could change this to zero. Set your viewing preferences to “new” and click save at the bottom of the page. Once this has been set up, you don't have to do it again.

To view your results, click the “custom” tab at the top. Voila! All new deals in reverse chronological order!

It's not half as intuitive as it was before. My CPU used to read 5% on this site. It now reads 50%. Shocking. (OK so I made that up- it was more about me brains!)

Yes, they're tweaking it and things, and should be faster eventually. It's already a lot faster than it was this morning.
#38
we should have 2 options. We can either choose the old one or this new one. Which hardly anyone likes.
