I do so hate these new pages.

No notice, you can't navigate between forums.

It's right at the top of the page, the little icon that looks like an envelope. I can't imagine it could be any more obvious.

Everything is so BIG now

It's all very spaced out looking. Not sure if I like it.

Every time I move from one page to another in the new site an irritating dialog box pops up asking me if I want to "receive notifications from this site". Is there any way to suppress this permanently? Currently I am spending almost as much time repeatedly closing this box as I am engaging with the content on the Forums.

Please can we not include contributor photos on the Forum posting pages. It makes it much more difficult to read them in a public or semi-public environment.

I have gone to settings and turned off all notifications and I am still repeatedly getting the "Do you want to show notifications from this site" message.  If someone doesn't tell me how to turn the bloody thing off soon, I am leaving this site for good!

So irritating!!!!

Where's the 'new posts' and 'recently added threads' links?

You can go into your notifications menu (the icon that looks like a bell) and configure which notifications you wish to receive.

You can also disable notifications site-wide in your browser's preferences.

Not sure what you mean - we don't have profile photos or avatars here. Please be more detailed.

I have been to the menu and turned off all notifications. I have turned off all pop-ups in my Mozilla preferences. But I am still getting the "Do you want to show notifications from this site?" pop-up every time I move from one page to another. I'm at a loss to think what more I can do.

It probably would not count as a popup in your browser settings. There should be a different preference menu item for notifications.

I checked and that setting is disabled. Would someone else like to try adding a photo to their profile and let me know what happens?

OK, apparently it is possible to link to an external photo and have that appear in your profile, even though uploading of photos is disabled.

Researching how to disable that.

I actually don't mind the layout I think it's good! 

One thing though, when I try look at new posts it doesn't automatically take me to them. Like on the "things I have learned on this forum" I have to go through every single page to get to today's newest post whereas on the old forum it would automatically go to it.

Nothing in the Mozilla preferences menu, but a search on Google turned up a solution which I will quote here in case it is helpful to anyone else:-

Right-click somewhere in a blank spot of the site from which you want to suppress notifications (or press Ctrl-I on Windows or Cmd-I on Mac) and then select "View Page Info" from the opening menu. This opens a window with a "Permissions" tab. In that, scroll down to the very bottom until you see "Show Notifications" as the third-to-last entry. Either reset that to the default, or just select "Block".

TYE, if you are logged in then, in the thread listings in any Forum, any topic which contains new postings that you haven't yet read will have its topic heading in bold font. If you click on the bullet point to the left of the topic title, you should be taken directly to the first posting which you haven't read. Works for me anyway.

Second visit today and it's no clearer. What happened to new content since my last visit?

 

Will these notifications pop up even though one isn't on the site? If so, I and others will be off!

Biggest problem I can see is that there's no link back at all to the main website now
