Hi @Janet38 if you go into my setting>my profile and then scroll to bottom of page and where it says Discussion Area Layout, select traditional. That will then give you the traditional look. Then select discussions at the top of the page to change the look.

Re: Really dont like the new sky page layout

Hi Dazzasky & Janet38,

I was of the same mind as Janet38 and thought the Community page had changed for the worst.

 

Like Janet38 I seemed to be having to go through to many pages to get to where I wanted to be plus I was lost because most of the subjects did not have a date - all very well putting yesterday or days ago but not much help??

 

I would like to say  Thank you Janet 38 for asking the question I would have asked and Thank you to Dazzasky for the answer, I now have a much better layout of all the Community pages.

And thank you for being so kind .    I still find the new pages very clunky and slow compared to how it was and much more difficult to navigate even after the changes i made in settings .  It seems to be all geared up for mobile and pc users seem to have been forgotten .  Also its all still really big on screen .

The reason it is more geared to mobile/tablet is because this is becoming the more dominant way people access forums etc…

Re: Really dont like the new sky page layout

I would not say it was awful, when testing I could not see much difference between PC and my iPad, anything I did see I reported and it got fixed.

Complete nonsense... Forums are being destroyed left right and centre  by this obsession for garish webpages... Fine if you are a retailer trying to sell a product  but completely useless on a website supposedly for finding and giving information . It should be compact.. clickable .... and easy to get to where you want to go.

 

 The complete opposite of this site.

It is not nonsense as I have access to the stats, do you?
