If there's anything you don't like, go to the bottom of the page, click on 'Hearth.com' and select 'default'. Should look a bit more familiar
I like the new style where it's more in the center. Old style, it was work to go all the way across the page from the thread title to see how many views, last poster etc.Much better, thanks!
I agree. They need to figure out how to make it run faster. This is not an upgrade. I would prefer older look with faster speed.The new interface is unusably slow for me (FireFox 41.0.2, AdBlockPlus, MacBook Air 2015, high speed cable internet).
Too bad, I really liked the discussions, but I will not be participating when each discussion thread takes many seconds to load.
bye for now,
When we switched to xenforo I advocated for the tinted background to keep white space down. It is fatiguing and hard on the eyes. Fortunately you can go back to the default old look, but I would like the new format with it's larger font to also have no white spaces. Regardless, it's great to have the option to choose what works best.I've never liked too bright and light backgrounds, it's not easy on the eyes and it kills mobile batteries quicker. The new setup looks very clinical and cold in my opinion where in the older format seemed to have a degree of warmth to it if that makes any sense to anyone. Haven't yet messed with the features yet so can't comment.
There's a new post if you hover the Home or Forum drop downs.Is there a way to change recent activity to new post in the nav bar?
It is slow, even hovering for alerts takes a long time.Im having the same problem as Doug - unusably slow even after switching to default. It literally takes minutes to load each page.
This occurs both in Firefox on my desktop and Chrome on my tablet. I have 50mb/50mb fiber internet and the site used to load in a fraction of a second just yesterday.
