What have I done with it confused

marquesas Tue 04-Dec-12 21:49:20

Mine's gone too - please tell us how to get it back smile

poncyettia Tue 04-Dec-12 21:52:04

mines vanished too - very boring having to scroll up to the top to get back to active convos sad

Lougle Tue 04-Dec-12 21:54:16

Mine also.

Lougle Tue 04-Dec-12 21:56:01

Oooh interesting...the option has gone under 'customise' too. Perhaps it's 'Viewport bar RIP'.

Hulababy Tue 04-Dec-12 21:57:04

Mine's gone now, now you mention it.
I prefer it gone tbh.

AnyaKnowIt Germany Tue 04-Dec-12 21:57:41

Mine has gone to, can't find how to get it back sad

I miss the floaty bar thingy sad

I used to hate it, now I miss it! <fickle!>

pELFicFloorClenchReminder Tue 04-Dec-12 22:00:57

Mine too! Have they all left for Christmas already? sad

RandallPinkFloyd Tue 04-Dec-12 22:11:16

Phew, I thought I was having a moment!

I was sure I remembered it being in customise too.

I was trying to remember if I've changed any setting or anything and had accidentally turned it off but the only thing I've done is NC for 1 post on the secret santa thread.

I used it all the time, scrolling back to the top all the time is a right ball ache.

SkipTheLightFanjango Tue 04-Dec-12 22:18:34

Mine too..thought I'd mucked it up. Please can we have it back???? MNHQ pweeessee <<bats eyelashes, offers gin>>

RandallPinkFloyd Tue 04-Dec-12 23:45:02

Was there always another talk menu bar thing right at the bottom under the smileys?

SkipTheLightFanjango Tue 04-Dec-12 23:47:21

Never noticed it...well blow me (not literally grin)! Still want the floaty bar for those times a long thread gets too dull to finish (all pages as one option here).

BertieBotts Germany Tue 04-Dec-12 23:50:00

You know there's a link for Active at the bottom? And you can also return to the top by pressing "Home" on your keyboard.

RandallPinkFloyd Wed 05-Dec-12 00:15:20

I just found the links on the bottom about half n hour ago (How I've not noticed them for 2 years I don't know!)

I don't have home button as I only have a crappy little net booky thing. I have to do a ctrl + something else faff.

TrillsCarolsOutOfTune Wed 05-Dec-12 08:24:38

I have also lost my floaty bar.

I believe they call it a "viewport bar".

LineRunnerWithBellsOn Wed 05-Dec-12 08:43:54

I hated the floaty bar when it first appeared and now I miss it when it's gone. I'm mad, me.

lubeybooby England Wed 05-Dec-12 08:46:15

I posted about it yesterday - it's been reported to tech www.mumsnet.com/Talk/site_stuff/1628930-Wheres-the-floaty-bar-gone

CuttedUpPear Wed 05-Dec-12 08:47:17

Yes mine too - I thought I was being dense!

KvetnutsRoastingOnAnOpenFire Wed 05-Dec-12 08:47:59

mine's gone too!

RandallPinkFloyd Wed 05-Dec-12 11:00:53

Sorry lubey missed your thread!

Glad they're on the case smile

AnyaKnowIt Germany Wed 05-Dec-12 11:18:08

Its still not back sad

I haven't got a home button either

lubeybooby England Wed 05-Dec-12 11:18:55

Come on tech.... pleeeeeeeeeeeease

VicarInaTutuDrankSantasSherry Wed 05-Dec-12 12:50:27

i wondered what was missing! its a pain scrolling back up.....

so whose nicked the floaty bar then? own up....

LoopsInHoops Wed 05-Dec-12 13:01:47

oh, was about to post this very same thing. Couldn't find the settings to change it back assumed DH has been peeking and messing my account around

Ponders Wed 05-Dec-12 14:34:05

I'm still missing the floaty bar sad

LittleTownofBethleHelenMumsnet (MNHQ) Wed 05-Dec-12 14:39:12

Hello. And sorry for not posting about this earlier.

The Viewport bar thing has been taken down, we're afraid.

We had SO much mail about how much it annoyed people...

please don't all mail in and say how much you're annoyed that it's gone

Lougle Wed 05-Dec-12 14:43:02

Oh dear! I didn't want it gone, I wanted it fixed grin

Could you add an extra line above the 'Start a new thread in this topic| Watch this thread| Flip this thread| Hide this thread| Refresh this thread' which has 'Threads: Active | I'm on | I'm watching | I started | Last 15 minutes | Last hour | Last Day'? That way, when you get to the bottom of a thread, you can just click, instead of having to scroll right up again.

It's particularly annoying for posters like me who don't used paged viewing, and can have 900 posts to scroll through to get back to the top.

KvetnutsRoastingOnAnOpenFire Wed 05-Dec-12 14:46:12

oh no! it was great! can it not be an option in classic view or something?

LittleTownofBethleHelenMumsnet (MNHQ) Wed 05-Dec-12 14:50:29

KvetnutsRoastingOnAnOpenFire

oh no! it was great! can it not be an option in classic view or something?

What specifically did you use it for, Kvetnuts?

OatyBeatie Wed 05-Dec-12 14:55:43

I found it vv useful too.

RandallPinkFloyd Wed 05-Dec-12 14:56:10

oh sad

Why would mail in all pissed off when you could just hide it if you didn't like it? confused

Oh well, thank you for replying Helen.

KvetnutsRoastingOnAnOpenFire Wed 05-Dec-12 15:00:36

not having to scroll to the top all the time, mainly! and navigating back to threads i'm on without having to go to the top of the page.

I liked it sad

LittleTownofBethleHelenMumsnet (MNHQ) Wed 05-Dec-12 15:23:38

KvetnutsRoastingOnAnOpenFire

Ok, we'll look at what we can do to make that easier in another way.

Lougle Wed 05-Dec-12 15:24:23

I use firefox and use tabbed browsing a lot. I like to be able to have various threads open and flick between them, mostly reading, sometimes posting. When you have the threads set out so that all posts are on one page, you can have to scroll up for several seconds to get to the top of the page.

With the viewport bar (when it was working correctly) I could be at any point in a thread, then open a new tab to check 'I'm on' or 'Active', etc. It also meant that I didn't have to 'lose my place' in the thread (I know there are bookmarks, but I'd use those if I actually intended to leave the thread, a la 'closing a book', rather than flicking between threads, a la looking up from a book to the TV and back again...)

I miss it, but would be fine if you just added those options that came with the viewpoint bar above the 'start new thread' bar at the bottom of each thread (before the 'add your message here' text box).

bradyismyfavouritewiseman Wed 05-Dec-12 15:47:03

NNNOOOOOOOOO!!!!

I loved that bar and that i could quickly click to threads I am on or active threads, if I was at the bottom of a thread.

I don't mind admitting I am a little bit gutted LittleTownofBethleHelenMumsnet

Panic not. We will find a solution.

EG: how about thread I'm on etc being at bottom of a thread, too?

OatyBeatie Wed 05-Dec-12 15:52:26

I don't usually get to the bottom. I just scroll down a little way and then decide to graze in a different field, so it is nice when the bar follows me about like an assiduous footman.

WankbadgersBauble Wed 05-Dec-12 16:09:44

WHAT? NO FLOATY BAR?! can't you make it opt out? FFS, it was the most GENIUS thing! <really, really pissed off emoticon>

RandallPinkFloyd Wed 05-Dec-12 16:09:50

What Oaty said ^^ grin

marquesas Wed 05-Dec-12 16:10:12

I used it loads too, I don't have a home button either (I need the num lock on all the time for work) and its really annoying to have to scroll around all the time.

Are the haters all using the mobile site/app - I can't see why anyone on a PC would hate it.

VicarInaTutuDrankSantasSherry Wed 05-Dec-12 16:14:41

who the actual would take the time to email in and say they didnt like it??? just dont use it if you dont like it!

but i liked it. i used it. SNOT FAIR!

lubeybooby England Wed 05-Dec-12 16:18:28

Whhhhhhhhaaaaaaaaaaat?

But it already was 'opt out' gahhhhh

If you had that much mail can you make it opt in, instead?

I wanna opt in!! I LOVED it!

RandallPinkFloyd Wed 05-Dec-12 16:19:23

It's not on the mobile site or apps, just the main site.

What is it with people and change?

A new thing? oh now, I don't want that
Ok, you can opt out if you like
NO! that's not good enough, I will still be haunted by it, begone terrible new thing!

It even had a little 'x' at the side to get rid of it for when you weren't signed in for crying out loud.

Oh well, it's not important enough to moan to HQ about. They can't win either way!

WankbadgersBauble Wed 05-Dec-12 16:34:15

It totally is worth whinging to mnhq! I will throw out my judgy pants and buy special whinging ones, if I must!

KvetnutsRoastingOnAnOpenFire Wed 05-Dec-12 16:35:56

what oaty said too!

RandallPinkFloyd Wed 05-Dec-12 16:54:14

Aww, I just feel a bit bad for them.

I mean they've created this awesome site that we all use far too much, they work really hard and try and listen to everyone and yet all they get is bloody complaints.

I mean seriously how many whingey threads are there on here every bloody day? You just can't please this many people all the time.

They're always so patient when they answer but dear God they must feel like banging their heads against a wall!

They are more than accommodating when people gripe about things and always try and be fair but who's site is it exactly?

TigerFeet Wed 05-Dec-12 16:59:44

New thing shock SIOB. I hate change. Make it go away.

Oh. It's still there. <shrug>

Well I suppose, seeing as how it's there, I might as well make use of it.

Hmm. I suppose it's quite handy actually.

Oooh! This IS rather lovely isn't it!

YOU'VE TAKEN IT AWAY sad

I WANT MY FLOATY THING BACK angry

^^ that's me, that is

Lougle Wed 05-Dec-12 17:03:50

I admit I wasn't keen on the fat icons for FB/twitter, etc., but functionally I loved it (the bits that worked).

AmazingBouncingBabyJesus Wed 05-Dec-12 17:04:10

shock

sad

I want it back!

I hardly ever read all the way to the bottom. I have a short attention span.

Aw sad RIP floaty bar of usefulness. <sniffle>

AmazingBouncingBabyJesus Wed 05-Dec-12 17:09:46

No no! It cannot rest in peace. It must come back. grin

LittleTownofBethleHelenMumsnet (MNHQ) Wed 05-Dec-12 17:11:34

AmazingBouncingBabyJesus

No no! It cannot rest in peace. It must come back. grin

Oh sob. sad

Am going to go and eat worms...

soapnuts Wed 05-Dec-12 17:14:05

noooo I loved the floating bar! I'm constantly having to scroll all the way to the top to click on active threads - at the end would be better than nothing but I have it set to not have pages so some of the threads are really really long and it takes ages to scroll to the top or the bottom!

Bring back the bar!

FunnysInLaJardin Wed 05-Dec-12 17:15:59

I miss it too. I used it all the time. Now thread browsing takes twice as long.......

AmazingBouncingBabyJesus Wed 05-Dec-12 17:26:26

Big fat juicy ones?

BahSaidPaschaHumbug Wed 05-Dec-12 17:35:43

GIVE IT BACK!

nextphase Wed 05-Dec-12 17:56:13

Helen - how about some wine or chocolate in place of worms?

I'd like the threads I'm on etc at the bottom of a page. Not sure of this floaty thing people are getting upset about - looks like I'm too late to the party again!

CuttedUpPear Wed 05-Dec-12 18:22:42

Please can we have the floaty bar back, MN is not the same without it sad

bradyismyfavouritewiseman Wed 05-Dec-12 19:28:50

Thanks LittleTownofBethleHelenMumsnet

<will mope until its back emoticon>

I agree with oaty and wankbadger.

I think the fact that it was opt out was enough. Don't like it? get rid.

Do like? keep it. Yay everyone is happy.

I am still not recovered from Brady getting kicked off pair of kings and THEN you steal my floaty bar.

<gets kicked while down>

NagooHoHoHo Wed 05-Dec-12 19:35:58

What?

You got rid of a thing that people could hide it if they didn't like it?

And they couldn't be arsed to work out how to hide it so you got rid of it?

hmm

PLease bring it back.

thanks

FriedSprout England Wed 05-Dec-12 19:40:39

Please, please, pretty please can we have it back - ta wine

AmberLeaf Wed 05-Dec-12 21:01:25

Its good in a way, because Ive hardly been on Mumsnet at all since floaty bar left us. Got much more done today!

I don't get why those that didn't like it couldn't have just hidden it? confused

VicarInaTutuDrankSantasSherry Wed 05-Dec-12 21:06:33

oooooo, is HQ reconsidering the floaty bar? i am really missing floaty bar....its a pain in the arse on a laptop to keep scrolling

CharlotteCollinsislost Wed 05-Dec-12 21:40:44

That's brilliant, though, having the Active l Threads I'm On l etc line at the bottom of the thread, too. (Has it always been there, and I've only just noticed it, or is that new, too?)

I'm sad the floaty bar's gone, but I'm guessing I'll get used to it. I'm with Tiger Feet about change!

CharlotteCollinsislost Wed 05-Dec-12 21:42:02

If you bring it back, will you call it floaty bar rather than viewport bar?

SwedishEdith Wed 05-Dec-12 21:49:06

Registering my disquiet also. I keep expecting to see it there but then... sad

Lougle Wed 05-Dec-12 21:52:35

Ahhhhhh just think = the person who made the floaty bar had been thinking it was a complete flop. Dejectedly, they bid farewell to it, casting it into the 'pixels of failure' bin.

Then, out of nowhere, groupies appeared, chanting 'Viewport bar, viewport bar, bring it back, bring it back...'

Someone, somewhere, has a nice warm glow this evening grin

neolara Wed 05-Dec-12 21:54:16

I'd like it back too please.

Ponders Wed 05-Dec-12 22:02:57

there should have been a VOTE!

(or was there, but it didn't say "floaty bar" so none of us knew what it was about?)

RandallPinkFloyd Wed 05-Dec-12 22:03:21

I like that Lougle grin

Whoever made the floaty bar thing wine we liked it!

RandallPinkFloyd Wed 05-Dec-12 22:08:15

Well it has a much better ring to it than 'viewport bar' doesn't it!

Maybe that's where it all went wrong, you need to sell these new ideas. Viewport bar doesn't exactly roll off the toungue and leave you excited and expectant.

'Floaty bar' sounds all magical and woo grin

pELFicFloorClenchReminder Wed 05-Dec-12 22:09:59

Yes! Don't bring back the viewpoint bar, invent and launch a lovely spanking new magical floaty bar!

poncyettia Wed 05-Dec-12 22:12:33

Can I add my name to the disgruntled floaty bar fans please - felling a bit lost without it sad

I was overdue a namechange so I'm going out and proud with my bar love.

Kewcumber Wed 05-Dec-12 22:50:50

I miss my floaty bar.

I have been tryong to find out what I'd done wrong with my compueter for about 20 mins - it hadn't occured to me that MN had STOLEN my floaty bar <<sob>> sad

NagooHoHoHo Thu 06-Dec-12 12:24:33

I'm now on the lap top and i really really miss the floaty bar.

I can't scroll fast on here, and I know I can press Home, but I need to use a function key for that and it's a PITA.

PLease please bring me back the floaty bar.

AnyaKnowIt Germany Thu 06-Dec-12 12:31:09

WheresMyJinglingCowBells Thu 06-Dec-12 14:38:09

FloatyBeatie Thu 06-Dec-12 14:47:16

LoopsInHoops Thu 06-Dec-12 14:48:32

Oh my God. It's been taken down on purpose? shock

Seriously, MNHQ, this renders the site practically unusable by me. I have slow internet connection and have to have whole page threads because I lose connection so quickly. Please reconsider or I will bombard you with daily emails

Aw, MNHQ, how do you put up with us all? Must be like having about a thousand dcs...

This thread has made me larf - I noticed it was gone and my thought processes about the floaty bar are exactly like Tiger's on the first page:
"URGH that is annoying.
Get rid of it.
Ooh that's quite handy actually. mmmn, threads I'm on...
WHERE has it GONE oh my GOD how will I COPE?"

Heh. Not my fault the emotions are so strong - it's mat leave, I've got too much time on my hands grin

MavisGrind Thu 06-Dec-12 21:23:31

Another one here who misses my Floaty Bar.

Can we not have it as standard for those who wish to do the whole-thread-on-one-page-scrolly-thing rather than those who opt for the lots of pages thingy (oh get me with the technical language!)

Anyway, I've never understood the Many Page MNers. They're just weird wink

AnyaKnowIt Germany Thu 06-Dec-12 21:40:00

Nowt wrong with pages grin

PeppermintonCandyCane Thu 06-Dec-12 21:44:26

Agree, pages are weird.
I hated the viewport when it first appeared and now I miss it badly.

Don't get me started on those who scroll up rather than down.....

(actually suprisingly tolerant in RL I'll have you know smile)

Not quite yet, sorry Sirzy. We will let you know what we have an eta.

<sings "You've Lost That Floaty Bar Feeling">

So I've noticed (or just worked out. Or both) that if you scroll right down past the 'reply' box you can see another 'I'm On' button. That gets over my "Waaaah no floaty Bar!" panic, because I don't have to scroll back all the way up to the top of the page to move on from what I'm reading.

that's nice.
BUT it's not a floaty bar, that's for sure smile

FloatyBeatie Fri 07-Dec-12 13:00:08

"Is it back? I can't find it?"

IceTheChristmasKateMumsnet (MNHQ) replies:

"Yes, everyone can see it except you mwahhahaaa"

Afternoon.

And the floaty bar is back - if you want it.

Just go to Customise/Other options/Hide the viewport bar (A.K.A. slide bar) and select No.

Re-enjoy!

lubeybooby England Fri 07-Dec-12 16:19:43

YAY thank you grin

lubeybooby England Fri 07-Dec-12 16:21:17

Done it! I have never been so happy about a website feature ever. I feel i should mark the occasion with champers or something <pops cork>

notMarlene Fri 07-Dec-12 16:21:51

Thank you!!

Lougle Fri 07-Dec-12 16:24:21

Hooooraaaaaaaaayyyyyy!

OddBoots Fri 07-Dec-12 16:32:57

Oh no! I thought it was a glitch and would come back!

I loved that bar, it saved me scrolling back to the top of the page every time I want active conversations or threads I'm on. Please can it be an option.

OddBoots Fri 07-Dec-12 16:33:31

Oh, thank you. smile I clearly didn't read enough of the thread, sorry.

lubeybooby England Fri 07-Dec-12 16:33:54

oddboots, see above... it's back as an option

lubeybooby England Fri 07-Dec-12 16:34:12

TrillsCarolsOutOfTune Fri 07-Dec-12 16:39:39

FLoaty floaty floaty!

FloatyBeatie Fri 07-Dec-12 16:45:01

Time to get angry about it now, so the cycle can continue

I hate that floaty bar. Just having the option for it in customise means I have to scroll down further to get to the other things I want to customise. Please get rid of it. It is ruining my experience of MN.

although I feel the need to mention that it isn't so much floaty as static wink

AnyaKnowIt Germany Sun 09-Dec-12 19:22:00

Yay! The floaty bar is back grin

Thank You thanks

FloatyBeatie Sun 09-Dec-12 19:35:59

Good point ponders. Come to think of it, the whole point is that it comes down with you as you descend -- so it is more of a sinky bar than a floaty bar. My whole life feels like a lie.
