glad about another thread on this.
Loading seems a bit slower
No different for me?
Is there is a way to switch back to old site design? Am I the only one who finds fonts look weird in Chrome?

So the only way to see all posts now is using custom it seems, as discussion posts don't show up otherwise

The main thread on the changes:
[ hotukdeals.com/fee…378 ]

Quick summary; click the link below to go to the new site:
[ hotukdeals.com/gopep ]
Can't work out how to find out if people are online or not, used to just click on their user name and the profile would tell you, where is it hiding now ? Any idea, I might have missed it in the 184 comments in fanpages link above , apologies if so
While all the new features are nice
none of them make the tea or save me any money

Hopefully some of the awfulness has been fixed when they make me switch

You can revert to the old skin (like I have) if you delete a few client-side cookie values associated with hotukdeals.com from your web browser's cache.

(I can list these if you are confident with being able to do this yourself)

If you are not familiar with how to delete just single values, simply clear all the cookies in your browser, then re-visit (re-log-in) & use the site again. You will probably find other sites you have previously visited will require you to log-in again, or change elements of their user experience previously stored in cookie values, though.
i don't see anything different? i am on chrome.

You have to click on the tester link on the feedback page in fanpages post number 10, any eye problems and I guess you will be deleting cookies as well

Make sure you comment on the feedback thread, link in comment 10, the only way the site will take any notice if people complain
Its horrible, feels like a mobile site on desktop

Jeezo, the new layout is AWFUL.

Seriously bad, I might not bother stopping by in future. It is BAD.
Every single HUKD layout design has been progressively worse and worse for user experience. I suppose it might be better for profit revenue etc.

But at the end of the day, it doesn't matter what we think. They'll force the redesign on us, we'll whinge for few weeks then it becomes status-quo and life moves on...

Edit: Ah, seems HUKD's parent company Pepper.com are aligning all sites to the same platform. That explains the change although not the poor UI.

A quote from the ongoing main thread's description (opening comment):
---
Again, we've tested these features across our sister sites already- they've been using the Pepper platform for a long while now so we *should*, at least in theory, have a user-focused pack of features by this point.
This whole update has been built around deal community feedback here and across our sister sites and has been constantly updated / tweaked / changed over the past couple of years, both on our new platforms and on our larger, established sites.

One wonders on the state of the sister sites, if very basic issues relating to poor testing are being spotted now!

Thankyou fp Back to the proper hukd layout design now
It's now reverted back to the new site, chrome told me that the site will be using cookies so I guess that trick is out for me

I am using Chrome on Android.
