There are still a few problems with using the various "Mumsnet Classic" options. However, for a lot of people matters are significantly improved if they press Refresh in their browse. If you're using Firefox, try pressing Shift+Refresh. At about 4:30am this morning after many hours of work, that made the classic option work well. Only a couple of minor layout issues remained.
Text is not meant to be squished, you're not supposed to have to scroll down through acres of whitespace. We'll definitely fix these issues.
I've no idea why people are finding text too tiny; the font size hasn't changed intentionally, so if it is tiny for you it's either a need to press refresh (to reload the style sheet, in tech speak) or a problem that will be fixed.
Threads I'm On and Threads I'm Watching should behave in the way they always did - they do for me. Let us know the specifics of problems you have with them and we'll address them.
We know about the problem of seeing "hide hide hide" across the top of the page. If you go in to customise (which my huge ENGLISH dictionary lists as being able to be spelled either customise OR customize) you can turn off showing of the Hide option which is a workaround for this problem. We'll fix it properly soon.
The ads have neither changed size nor increased in number.
Remember: Press REFRESH (and try SHIFT+REFRESH) a couple of times. It might help a lot.
For those having problems we do apologise and will sort it all as soon as we can. For those that hate it, perhaps you'll get used to it after a while and we'll improve the classic options (though I am using them now and they're working fine).
Oh and for the 2 of you that said thanks for all the hard work: thanks! It has taken over a dozen people a lot of hard work. We had to release it in a hurry and it's not perfect, but we'll get there.
yes, you have done very well.........I even gave you a gold star, but you have missed the moon, or missed commenting on my comments about the moon........is it that the yesterday moon was broken, or is it that we are indeed in another reality???
FWIW, I don;t have the list of 'hides' and white space unless I try to change my options.....going back to my normal options makes me happy
I miss the purpleness that showed me which threads I have clicked on..........whats with that??? All the threads stay the same colour now.
Sorry Tech if I have come across as a bit moany I did say I loved it and know it is damn hard work - nice job
(Just wanted to point out the Thread Im On possible glitch with the names next to the last post as it must be a nightmare finding and picking up on every tiny bug in the system - not nit picking, honest!)
Well done, I can see how much work must have gone into these changes. I'm sure we'll all get used to the new style soon enough!
One thing which I'd like (once you've dealt with the bugs of course) would be if we had an option to set the default "Show All"/"Hide All" in Talk Topics, as I prefer the "Show All" option, but it doesn't stay that way when I leave the page. That would make navigation easier from my POV.
1) Latest name says it's me even when others add to the thread. 2) Clicking on the thread title takes you right back to the beginning of the thread and there is no way of getting back to the point where you were reading - especially annoying on a very long thread 3) Clicking on the Latest name takes you to Mumsnet Talk front page instead of anywhere useful - am assuming this is a bug rather than a feature!!!
Oooo... idea for the I'm On section - could we have a "Show All" button for there too which expanded out the individual posts for all the new replies so you could directly go to where you left off - that would help A LOT.
