Dave - I know we're all individuals, and it's difficult to have a 'one size fits all' resolution, but, as Daniel has said, we are being listened to. The list on the first page of this thread shows that. 


I don't think it's helpful that there's been umpteen threads started with the 'new forum' as the topic. Some people have even started more than one, and it just leads to lots of random posts with no obvious unity or coherence, making the team's job even harder.  Sticking to the threads that Nora has started is the sensible way to ensure the team read everyone's comments, and they can then address the complaints. 


I think we have to be patient and let the team have a little time to work through everything.

 That's exactly what I said with all the new threads, too many would be  junior hosts.


the site isn't going to get back to how it was, it's the only forum spread out like this, thankfully I already use another that's laid out just like this one was, so you can see exactly all the days threads and click on the last persons post.


I won't be using this rubbish site anymore, far too time consuming and deadly white and spidery, I certainly don't intend changing my settings just to look in here, I feel sorry for people with eye sight problems.


what was wrong with the other site? Ok no photos on iPhones, most others worked, mine did. People couldn't quote, I have explained to several people how to do it, and they then could. Same with photos. 


Most of the previous  problems were from people not knowing how to do things. 


Now it's down to this.

On my iPad, I can't even type anything on Chrome,  so back on safari, I am not posting on this site as a user anymore, it's ridiculous,


I can't even see what I am typing in the posting box, so you may like to add to the list that it won't finger pinch out on either safari or chrome.

Advise me another website PLEASE

You were always able to jump to the latest post, now you have to keep backing up to find out where you left off yesterday.


i think this is my last post, someone has opened yet another thread about the new look, that's, what seven now! 


Hows Nora supposed to look through all that lot .  She has specifically asked that everyone just post on the same one that she opened, but no, here's another this morning. Can't be doing with this.


too many amateur hosts on here now for my liking.


i have found another very good gardening site that moves very quickly, so very vibrant, and I already belong to another one anyway. Twos plenty to keep up with.

And yet another thread opened about the new site!


how many is that, seven?


For goodness sake, of course it's all there, and the reason no one likes it is because it's all spread out and you cant see at a glance the days entries.


i am sure there are several people can make a website, anyone can, it's not rocket science.


Dove  is well aware of how to work the site, she's closer  to it than any of us. 


And as said on every other thread on this...there is not an edit button.


JT53, you're fighting a losing battle here!

Everything is  being duplicated because a few are playing junior host and opening new threads.


Nora has a thread open for comments, so has everyone else now.


is it because they can't see the original threads, you can, they are all there.
