    For me, most of the changes are in the area of "Who thought that was a good idea???"
    Perhaps these are all to 'optimize' things for folks that communicate with their phones??
    'Owner knows best", I guess.

    Short list after 5 minutes of use:
    1)color palette choice Huh? Yuk! Orange + unreadable fuzzy pastels- what's the problem with black for font color? And, a non-migraine background and palette?
    2)buttons in the reply window are all very very faint and fuzzy- definitely a step backward from what was before...lo-rez
    3) 'Normal' reply window is gone - only 'Quick reply' shows when I click on 'Reply to thread'. To get the 'old Normal' reply window, I have to click on 'Go Advanced' and then the previous messages disappear from the page.
    4)'Default' smiley collection has changed, and some of my old faves are gone completely
    5)'Today's Posts' button has disappeared
    6)Multiquote button doesn't deserve a text description, apparently

    Carry on.......I'd insert the blue 'unhappy' smiley here but it has been removed........

    Perhaps others are seeing something clearer than what I'm getting?

    3) Scroll down in the Advanced mode to view the previous posts. Admittedly, they seem a bit more garbled with the usernames.

    5) Forum tab/Quick Links/Today's Posts.

    6) Had to do a double take myself. The text shows when you hover over the button.

    Wow, what a frightening "site" to log in today after being sick for a bit. I was shocked and disappointed. I'm sorry, but I'm not a fan. The search is terrible. It's going to take time to learn things again and figure things out. Perhaps it'll be a bit more smooth, but right now, I just don't have the time to fumble around another new thing on the web. It's frustrating to keep up with. I understand the old site wasn't as secure anymore, but there has to be choices of a similar forum platfrom that we were using.

    I guess it's just me, but for now, I don't like it.....but, as many of you know, I'm one of those that doesn't like change, especially such a big one.

    How do you search for your name, specifially in posts in case someone addressed you or to keep conversation going? Also, when you do a search for something in particular, why isn't it listed with the newest threads first? I was on a thread earlier in regards to this new site, and now I can't find it. Though perhaps I should be posting there instead. Pure frustration. I guess at this point just share a link with directions for me to refer to. Heck, make sure to add important links to any post.

    DivaB - All my tips have been updated - go to the first post in thread (BTW - this is a sticky under Forum\General Hammock Talk).

    The Advanced Search still has an option to search by a persons name, and display them as posts. It just requires an extra click. Whatever you search on should be highlighted.

    As to the search display order, there is an option at the bottom of the Advanced Search to select the order - just make sure you have descending order by date selected.

    You can turn off avatars & signatures in the Settings/General Settings area, but you may like those.

    I see they also brought back VB4 Default Style as a color option, though I'm not sure how permanent that is (just scroll to the bottom of this thread & look for the Quick Style Chooser - It probably says Hammock Camping.
    Anyway, if you change it to VB4 Default Style, it eliminates the boxes displaying people's Hammock/Tarp/Insulation. That, along with getting rid of avatars & signatures will give you the most text with least unnecessary space.

    But then again I'm not sure if the VB4 style is here to stay.
