Please go back to the original. Why condense the main headings at all? Typical arrogant developer rolling out nonsensical changes, seek opinions, then ignore them all.

Why would anyone think two clicks to navigate would be better than one?

I knew someone would have to mess things up again. I bet few are going to like this daft update. Please roll it back!

yeah, i did wonder why i was getting a green on green header or a white highlight of my current section... as if i didn't know what i just clicked

Not good

It's killed the mobile site!!! Not happy at all

I like the new placement of the submit button, I don't feel like I am missing anything

It looks pretty crisp on the desktop. Not tried it on mobile though. I like it.

Has the text size slightly changed too? either way I really like it. A lot sharper.

I like it, better than the Highlights tab.

WE FEAR CHANGE!

page select drop down arrow broken also
shame would have to actually test these things to find them!

All thats changed is you now have to click twice rather than once to move from deals to misc, hot to discussed etc. It looks crisper as they have removed the text links / functionality oO

I actually can't even remember what the old layout looked like X)

Was there a misc tab before? I'm sure I had to click menu to get to misc?


you hover over menu to see it, you shouldn't need to click to see the options .......

Any mod response appreciated as it's been 7 months since the last mod comment on this major bug

You do on any mobile device

Any good reasons for removing the link to custom view?

it's an improvement, there is less rubbish before you get to the deals, it's easier to navigate to the filters and categories.

I am not a fan of the new tabs (hot, new, discussed) but that's purely asthetic.

Thanks for the feedback. Reviewing it for passing over.

We'll be adding it back in.

I don't use it on my Ipad but on my phone it's 1 long menu, and on the iPad it's only click to open on landscape view.

Testing the old version on my iPad, the functionality is still the same from what I can see, 1 click to open the menu and then click misc.... so they haven't changed anything that wasn't there before?

There were more sub menu items available without having to click on the dropdown

Hot, discussed, new were one click away; now two

Thanks for that. I use my tablet in portrait, but as you said, in landscape the tabs are there. Still don't like it though!

i have custom tab enabled to disable vouchers being up there but having ask and forsale/trade up on there and nothing is changing so i'm having to zoom out on the webpage to get ask back

On mobile site there is no lightening notification or pm.

I realise this new implementation is going to stay regardless of what people think, but can I suggest a new approach for the future updates.
1. Put up a test page to see what members think. That way any bugs and issues can be dealt with before the update goes live.
2. Add HOT and COLD buttons to get instant insight into the feelings of members

It's work in progress, they will make adjustments based on user feedback, not the way I would do it (beta version then launch changes) but there is nothing fundamentally wrong on this one, just user preference!

click the user icon and it will display 3 tabs, message, lightning and user profile links.

oh dear

So you now you have to click your user icon to see if you have a pm or response to a post wheras before you knew instantly. Some 'improvement'

Am I missing something?

I'm old, I don't like to fix things that aren't broken

But there's not much changed on the site (using pc version/web access) except fonts/colours here and there

Or am I the only one not looking hard enough? The only gripe I had today was when the site went apesh** for about 4mins but it gave me enough time to put the kettle on a mash a cuppa

*my eyes* *my eyes* did you have to go make it even brighter ?

no problems with the layout

love the speed boast

Looks sharper and cleaner to me but I can't see a big difference. Then again I'm not the most observant of people!

Either way it's certainly nothing to complain about ...

Any chance to use the old theme instead?

At first I was like WTF but after a few uses it's not so bad on mobile.

Here we go again, year after year asking for feedback and I have never seen it auctioned once when the users don't like it. Please please please stop asking for feedback if you don't actually care about it

It's wonky.

Using Firefox.

Now trying the mobile page. The logo now no longer takes us "home" we get a menu. This effects my usage. The extra step to change type is also not great.
I guess having everything in drop-down menus makes room for feature expansion, like new sections, but this is a deals site foremost, please try keep that in mind.
I admit it looks tidyer on desktop but not enjoying it here on mobile.

Suggestion: Have the far left of the header image act as before. I know there is a "Home" link when in a deal but it's tiny. Not great with fat fingers.
