Immediately looks much better, it's annoying when the top ten deals section on the right disappears to the bottom of the page under certain screen widths
Not agreeing with my safari o/s, I seem to be getting an overlay image on top of script.
I like it, it is immediately much better to look at and smoother to use.

The only possible issue I found was with the recent activity section on the right of the page. I clicked on more but it didn't show me any more. The one furthest down was 8 hours ago, so I'm not sure whether this is limited to a certain amount of time or if it's an issue?
First impressions are positive; I'll try it out for a bit and report back if I spot anything amiss. Thanks
Found my first issue just there - I don't seem to be able to edit posts.

The colour of the envelope indicating an unread Private Message has also changed, & the height/position of text within the Menu Bar has changed too:

Old Menu Bar:

New Menu Bar:

I noticed this a couple of days ago on the page displayed when an invalid page has been viewed:

When previewing a comment, the [Submit] button is disabled...

PS. This may be unrelated, but three times now I have clicked the [POST COMMENT] button (on three different threads), & the submission has "hung" like this:

http://i1152.photobucket.com/albums/p490/_fanpages/HotUKDeals%20Feedback/PostaCommentHanging_zps448233b9.jpg

The comments had all been submitted/posted successfully (as I can see if I open a new tab/window & viewing the same thread again), but the page submitting the comment is not able to be interacted with again until the [x] icon (top right of the overlaid panel) is clicked.

As mentioned above, using the "NFE" option ("New Front End"?), editing a comment prompts for a reason (immediately) & also does not allow the edited text to be re-submitted.

Using the existing site design ("Old Front End"?), an edit can be made/submitted & the "Reason for Edit" request continues to only be displayed after the initial grace period following the initial submission.

"NFE"

The "Other Links From HUKD: HUKD deals" is a new addition (& an invalid link):

^ As you can also see, I do not have the "SHARE" link within the "NFE" version of the thread description (opening post).

Existing site:

There is an "Other" option in the "Customise Hot Tab" panel, that is not within the drop-down list of Topics (in either the existing site, or the "NFE" variant), but I expect the absence from the drop-down list has not been noticed to date.

This aside, the drop-down list remains visible when the "Customise Hot Tab" panel is shown within the "NFE" variant...

I get the same in Opera 12.

Doesn't seem to be a text only view. The normal view has too much white space for my liking.
I also had the page hang like fanpages in comment 15 but saw this instead:

though I had opened another page without the nfe in the meantime so it could just be my browser getting confused.

Stop being lazy and copy the link yourself

Stop being lazy and copy the link yourself

What's copying got to do with it? This is 2014, if you click more than twice you're doing it wrong
Not working on my safari but works on crome fine.
Thanks for your time & feedback so far

Update:
- Recent activity right hand side widget not revealing more activiy is fixed
- Not able to edit posts is fixed
- The comment grace period is back
- The envelop/lighening icons should indeed only have a glow, we'll fix this
- Previewing a comment, submit button is fixed
- 'Other links from HUKD' is fixed (not showing anymore)

@bought/fanpages: do you still have issues submitting comments as in it wouldn't stop loading?

There is still the text only view when clicking the view button with just the lines, however we did update the layout a little.

@mrman007: what doesn't work on safari?

Any further reports, especially testing on mobile devices would be really appreciated!

Wow. Well done team, a brilliant job! You finally made the site usable
The subscription on a thread was broken too but is fixed now so if you subscribed to this deal, you should get a notification this time

also my notification icons are glitching out in chrome.



Sorry, that wasn't the nicest release but a cache refresh should fix it.
I don't like how it looks now - too blocky yet at the same time different sections seem to be less defined.

But I seem to be the only one to say so, so presumably it's just me!
dont like it.

Are you on Version 38.0.2125.111 m?

I can. Are you on Version 38.0.2125.111 m?



nope sounds like that may be the root cause, but think it still needs fixing using 38.0.2125.104 m
This is some serious beta stuff you're getting the public to test. Unusable on ie9.
The whole interface looks a lot cleaner and clearer but does each deal/freebie in the hot category need a flame against it?
A request rather than bug.

On older skins the price of a deal used to be with/below the pic. The current version doesnt have the price there anymore so you have to look across just to see the price.

I know it was mentioned on the previous changeover so I dont think I am alone in missing it.

Could it be added please? It makes scanning through the deals much easier (imo).
My Chrome browser has gone back to the old HUKD skin ,how do i get it back to the new one
please
Kind Regards
