Lovely flower ID

Looks like a tulip that is nearly over.

I have a big problem to resolve

Would it be possible to move the shed to the end of the garden? It isn't pretty in the middle.

Awful new format for forum

Posted: 04/05/2016 at 22:12

I hate this new forum, I want the old one back, please. I've given all the reasons for hating it on other threads. It seems most of the threads today are about the awfulness of this format.

Steve, although it's ticked, I don't think mine is working.

How do you know what page you are on? You can go to next page or previous page but I can't find what number page you are actually looking at.

Busy-Lizzie - you can either send someone a private message via 'My messages' (the link will appear when you click your avatar in the top right), or you can click 'Message' beneath their forum comment. Here's a screen shot:

Yes I know you can send a message, but where are all the previous messages I've sent and received?

I agree with Sue as well, you can no longer go to the last post you read, only the last post of all.

FG, I need an edit button too.

Clari I found the numbers, further down than I thought. I don't like the purple at the bottom either, not restful.

I wish they could have kept the previous format, but with improvements.

Just looked at messages, a box appeared to send a message to myself. Where are all my previous messages? I wanted to look at something someone sent me and it's no longer there.

To send a message to someone else do I click on their avatar?

How do you look back at the previous page? No page numbers at the bottom and I'm sure there are posts I've missed this afternoon.

I really don't like this format, too big and too white.

Just seen pages on the bottom, sure they weren't there a minute ago! To much scrolling with this format.

Just found it, no oak tree, but something that looks like an E on the right had side, is easier in fact - that's if it works!

This is just awful. I feel as though an old friend has gone forever. I agree with all the above comments.

It's too white for me, I liked the old format. You can only see one post at a time, have to keep scrolling to see what people have said. Lots of wasted space. Why was there a need to change it? It was fine before. I don't have a phone to see it on anyway, I have an old phone, simpler and cheaper to run and fits better in my jodhpur pocket when riding.

How do you send photos? No oak tree.

Our avatar pictures are much smaller and you can't see the number of posts people have done, which I like because you can tell if they are a newish poster.

How do you turn back to the previous page? No page numbers, or have I missed them.

This thread also appeared on the first page when I had it set to appear at the last page.

If the forum stays like this I will be another one leaving, after 4 years. Just can't cope with it.
