Hi all,

As you know we have launched the new mobile site, we know it's a big change and we are still very keen to get it right with your help. This is very much a version that will evolve with your help as part of the testing process.

There have been a few glitches that have/are being ironed out and the HUGE thread has nearly maxed out, so we thought it best to start a shiny new one.

We know change is tricky but, as with most things MN, we are all ears and happy to look at any feedback you have on ways we can improve the new site.

Thanks all thanks

Hello !

<watches RebeccaMN flee in horror>

Could we please have thicker lines between threads/posts. Would help a lot.

Maybe 1 colour for threads, one on threads for posts ?

Could we have choice of colour for highlighting posts ?

Don't suppose there is a chance of a different background colour choice for people ?

There is less room for actual posts now.

Ads are very annoying but I reckon they are staying. Unfortunately.

Thank you for adding the "hide thread" option however it isn't working. I press hide thread, it "loads" but doesn't tell me it's hid, I go back on my TIO and the thread I had pressed to hide is still there.

Anyone else with this problem?

crispandfruity Thu 21-Aug-14 14:29:01

Change the colour of the bottom toolbar too. It's too pale.

OrangeMochaFrappucino Thu 21-Aug-14 14:29:11

I'm a total broken record but PLEASE give us back the option to hide the social share buttons, please!

Also, on my customise page why is there an uncheckable option to show the special needs topic?

Oh and thanks for ironing out lots of the glitches so far...But, yeah, social share buttons NEED to go!

Hi all. Thanks for all your comments and feedback. We have already made some of the changes and fixes you've mentioned and are busy with lots more, including making Active easier to read through and the previews on TIO etc. Please do continue to let us know of any problems you find. Thanks

Asked many times, by many posters, on old thread but maybe it'll get seen if I post now: CAN WE HAVE OPTION TO USE OLD MOBILE SITE INSTEAD, PLEASE?

This is actually improving a bit from the all time low that was 8am, and bits of it (dropdown emoticon menu) are pretty good, but the old site was miles better and a lot faster.

Am still interested to know - given the overwhelmingly negative response - what you were aiming for with the redesign?

crispandfruity Thu 21-Aug-14 14:30:53

And (I really need a life ) the top bit with the arrow circle thing and >topics etc needs a rethink. It displeases me.

MummaMeerkat Thu 21-Aug-14 14:30:58

I think I have found my way around most things but how do we flip the threads now?

EhricLovesTheBhrothers Thu 21-Aug-14 14:31:19

Thanks. What about sorting out 'threads I'm on' so we get the last few posts on each thread back and also make the board (eg chat, aibu) clickable again?

crispandfruity Thu 21-Aug-14 14:33:07

Basically shamtech we want the old site with the new emoticon system wine

EhricLovesTheBhrothers Thu 21-Aug-14 14:33:26

Sorry x post - off to check! If you've fixed TIO I will stop moaning, promise.

SheWhoDaresGins Thu 21-Aug-14 14:34:18

ShamTech how the hell do I view all messages instead of having to go through each page 1 by 1?

Thanks for trying to sort all this btw but the old layout would make moat of us sigh with relief flowers

MrsVamos Thu 21-Aug-14 14:34:34


Are you working late tonight or are we in for another evening of waiting for glitches to be resolved ?

<offers brew, wine, and cake>

SheWhoDaresGins Thu 21-Aug-14 14:34:42

Most* not moat ffs

EhricLovesTheBhrothers Thu 21-Aug-14 14:34:44

What have you done to TIO? Because it looks the same to me sad still no last few posts.

Patilla Thu 21-Aug-14 14:35:15

The thread title could do with being more distinguishable please

EhricLovesTheBhrothers Thu 21-Aug-14 14:35:20

She who dares that's there in customise. You can pick how many posts to a page and choose 1000.

MummaMeerkat Thu 21-Aug-14 14:35:41

Ah found it, in the same menu as customise. It wasnt there earlier or I was not looking properly

avocadoaddict Thu 21-Aug-14 14:35:54


PLEASE answer the many posters who have asked whether we can have the option of using the old site. It was perfect for what I suspect is the vast majority of mumsnet mobile users (apologies if I'm speaking on your behalf and you disagree with me!).

I just don't see how, by changing a few glitches, you can make this version better than the old one.

Are you able to answer the question (asked many times on the previous thread) as to why this was forced on us to begin with?


ChairmanWow Thu 21-Aug-14 14:37:06

Still too glarey for us migraine folk. A few mins on here and I have to stop. Please, please, pleeeeeeaase sort that.

Also that advert - after you've killed and burned it can you encase it in concrete and throw it in a very deep lake.

ASpiderInTheBath Thu 21-Aug-14 14:37:21

I can't load any long threads angry. There's long threads I need to catch up on/post on and can't. It's sooo frustrating. I can't get to the bottom and then it just freezes.
