    Their is no sequential numbering for a thread's Posts, that I can see...this has always been VERY helpful in the past for navigation.

    BTW: the overall look of the new Website is very nice, IMHO.

    Is this update active for all? I don't see a "Your Menu" nor any change to the forums.

    Sekyal, the forums have an ALL NEW LOOK, so if you have it, you will KNOW IT!

    "YOUR MENU" is located just below the blue banner at top of page, in a white sub-banner, at very left of that BANNER...it may be collapsed, and you may need to open it to see the additional contents.

    It would be GREAT to have a flying '"TOP" of page' button in the margin

    Sure, once you enter the forum... But then you can't see what is new in the subs.

    Old view from main page.

    Entering the forum still leaves you clueless on the status inside the subs and you have to enter them.
    Attachment 134088



    This makes it a long involved search to answer the question of "Is there new content inside so that I should enter or not?"

    I now have to enter way more forums than I need to. Please remember, I not only read as a member, but patrol as a Moderator. This new style is slowing me down on both counts.
    Exactly!
    Especially for the forum sections with a lot of sub forums, it goes between me feeling overwhelmed and it makes it slower for me to seek things.

    On PC, I usually open many tabs, especially as an ambassador even though I did the same kind of, before. It would be cool if there was some kind of toggle to make categories appear.

    Dark mode suits my eyes somewhat better with certain text being easier to see, too faint otherwise making me squint way too often

    Here's few.
    I noticed that when you type certain amount of text, and when you go to a new line, the cursor seems to me positioned way off. Like this.



    The text is getting in the way of those icons.


    I'ts even worse when you quote:


    And this little thing, is supposed to be? Link? It doesn't work for me.

    I am not seeing the new forum design today.
    I saw it yesterday late evening and night (India time) and would have gone through it properly today but I am seeing the old design today since morning.

    I found an odd quirk. If you are on a PC and you just happen to select the Mobile version (accidently), there is no option shown to go back to any of the other version (or I couldn't find it). I had to clear out my browser cookies to get back to a style that showed the options.

    This is on a PC. I have logged out and back in and I have cleared cookies. I am using Edge, but I tried it in Chrome with the same result - old forum. I checked settings, but the style on "Use Forum Default" just to be sure and still no change. I know where the "Your Menu" should be, I've seen screenshots, but I don't have it.

    How do you mark all new posts as read?

    Edit: Found it where you buried it away. Be more helpful to have it on the New Posts pages as before though.

    Inside a forum.. Click tools at the top right of the page (just before the thread titles start) and select "Mark this forum read."

    On the main page underneath all the forums, there is a button to "Mark all forums read."

    In the forums... when viewing the list of thread titles...

    There is no indicator of Q&A status. No marker to show the OP was posted as a Question and no indicator to show it has received a Best Answer.

    OK I did find the Question indicator, but it does not change when a Best Answer is selected so the icon looks the same if the question is open or bested.

    Ok, today you can't change the style at all. Stuck with the new style even if you choose "WP Central 2012" or "WP AMP".

    Not a good update. Lots of information missing. I really liked the top area with the trending and new items. Also the sub forums are not quickly accessible.

    So yeah, design maybe easier but a lot more clicking to get where you want to. Information is also not so visible and so the forum looks pretty "simple". The previous layout conveyed the content better.

    -Using it on IE 11 (yes, I still use it!) was a complete crash. Nothing lined up, or was in any sort of format. I blame IE 11.
    Ditto, I have to use IE11 at work, and it is a mess on the main page - indented forum listings and some other odd things.

    Edge on W10M is generally ok, but my very first load had a banner ad across 1/3 of the page in the wrong place. noticed after browsing there was a place for the ad, but the ad ignored that location.

    It does load faster, Thank you!!!

    After using for a few days my comment is: "If it wasn't broke, why did you decide to FIX it?

    As I stated in an earlier post, my 71 year old eyes don't handle pastel colors too well. I see better with more contrast. That said, I'm able to browse in the light theme better than the dark but can't stay in forum for more than 15 minutes or so before I have to log out. Make making contributions difficult but I'll manage.

    Today I see the new design but I cannot change back to the old design if I wish to.The page reloads in the new design.
    I cannot see who has liked my posts.
    The 'Started by ' is missing from the threads.
    However ,the pages load faster than in the old design.
    The pages in the new design seem to have less information than the old design.
    Also,the titles of Moderator,Ambassador etc are absent in the new design.
    Advanced search option is missing in the new design.
