Got to be honest and say I'm
struggling with new forum .
Cannot find a lot of things &
will pop in later .
the_bookie true like old better
the_bookie Sorry to hear that,
We have got a few handy walkthroughs for mobile and desktop which run through the basics of the community on flarum, please do check them out, and if there is anything else puzzling let us know:
me too, it’s not straightforward or intuitive is it?
im not good with change at the best of times so I’m finding this all a bit baffling. Little and often dipping in and out will hopefully help us to get the hang of it. 😊
the_bookie as previously mentioned, how do you do p.m's, have they got rid of the kudos system.
I find it hard to string thoughts together not being able to see the whole block of text have just typed.. maybe will get used to it? can you still put you tube vids in or pics?
How do you start a new thread?
Expect there's been info sent out and not read it yet but those are my initial thoughts.. the green is very distracting too, don't know if they could take the hue down..got screen on lowest light setting...
the_bookie I’m finding it awful 🙁 don’t think I will be around much longer 🙁
the_bookie me too, I'm hoping the more I use it the better it will be 👍
the_bookie im same. Im finding it difficult to get my head around
the_bookie I'm the same it's going to take time
it'll take time to get used toooo
the_bookie yes I am very confused
the_bookie Yes am struggling. Not happy. Also I Think I have Tagged something getting loads of email of giffgaff .???
the_bookie IM DISLEXIC AND IF I CAN DO IT ENY ONE CAN
the_bookie I feel exactly the same but, like everything else, I'm sure it will fall into place. I hope it will.
I was struggling myself this morning ...as the day has gone on I am slowly finding my way round the new platform ..... will give it my best shot and won't let it beat me .👍persevere everyone ... it's only day one 🙉
the_bookie I am not especially keen on it either. Hoping I will get used to it soon.
the_bookie Hi yup for me I think it's gona take a bit of getting used to ! Preferred the old one but things must move on I suppose ! That's progress.
the_bookie Us bears are still getting used to it.
the_bookie Some Days I Am Ok Other Days I Dont Have A Clue lol
the_bookie It's really great to see change
You will get used to it by time..its alot easier n faster to use once you get the hold of it..
the_bookie Agreed its gonna take a while to get used to
the_bookie I am struggling with it too. I was away for awhile. I am hoping to get used to it. I don’t like change but hopefully this change works out for the best
How is this new forum supposed to improve what was there previously,
Are there supposed to be definate advantages to this new format,
If so, what are they..?
the_bookie I am like you but I found that is you make a mistake one of the GG team do often help out with a suggestion. But just keep going with it and it does get better after a bit my score for making mistakes has gone down a lot so do not give in my friend
the_bookie I've come on tbr forum after ages and I've got to say it was quite a shock the new layout. I did prefer the old one
the_bookie I'm not keen on it but still using it
the_bookie getting used to it slowly
the_bookie getting the hang of it slowly
I'm trying but to be honest I've been really busy over the last couple of weeks and haven't spent much time here. I think like anything that changes it takes a while to get into it.
the_bookie I'm on a laptop and am finding it great its amazing
the_bookie Hi tbh I preferred the old style platform but as I'm getting used to this new layout it's growing on me and I'm liking it more the more I'm using it !
the_bookie Bit I'm really struggling with is the Private messages just can't seem to get ma head around doing it !!
the_bookie It will take little time but definitely after some months you will only say that this community forum is much easier than previous one.
the_bookie old one was more better ☺
the_bookie I agree! Its a bit confusing at the start. There are pros and cons to this forum
the_bookie I'm sorry to say I don't like it at all so now don't use it very often
the_bookie same here.Much prefer the older one.
the_bookie I had trouble at first too, I’m sorry to see you are. I’d recommend you keep trying, and try it on your mobile phone too. It’s actually easier to use on a mobile and a much better platform than it was before. But it just needs a bit of extra time to get used to it. Once you use it a few times and feel more comfortable I think you’ll start to love it. At least I hope you do 😊
I am too maybe I am just stuck in my old ways haha I am sure it will become a better experience !
I had the same at the beginning so I left it alone and recently come back and I'm making my way through it now and I seem to be getting more of the hang of it. Hope you figure it out.
the_bookie i so agree with you hate it .
wish they would change it back.
but it would be a fail for someone.
the_bookie Got to be honest and say I'm
struggling with new forum .
Same here @the_bookie, but suppose that we'll all get used to it eventually. I miss the extra control of the old image dialogue box and old more convenient quote system.
the_bookie ee to I liked the old one so much better
the_bookie hi , I struggled at first but stay with it and you'll get there in the end. Merry Christmas
Plus the fact,, it's still cursed with,
"SORRY,, BUGGERED UP AGAIN,, TRY LATER"
messages,, frequent,, and often,,
& Seems bugger all's been done about it by powers that be..
guy_ow, I haven't been on the forum for a couple of weeks, so come back to find the platform has changed over, like most people, you get used to things, but I will hopefully get used to the newer platform at some point.
guy_ow Thank you for this. I was wondering if there was a post like this around.
Its gunna take some gettin used to
tonicurtis1967 I am still trying too get use to it but I am making loads of mistakes
tonicurtis1967 I have only just seen this I really don't like it either to the point I won't be coming on anymore.
It will take a bit of getting used to as we are so used to the old forum format of the old website.
I’m just gonna keep at it until I so stressed that I throw my iPad 😁
bigdaddy0714 Ohhh no don't do that...find a pillow to throw instead lol. Or throw the iPad at a pillow if you really need to throw it 😂
bigdaddy0714 I'm finding it easier now, even helped a few people. Lol.
Finding it hard to find things, hoping it'll be easier once I get use to it
You can only identify the author of a thread by the avatar or am I missing something guy_ow
caro120 and all
Hopefully with a few tweaks to
the problems on the new site
things will get a lot better for
us all .
A couple of my threads I have
noticed have data and photos
missing too after the migration
Give it time and you might get use to it
Yes that needs sorting out nefarius
Indeed. Quite a few threads I don't want to read what has even been put to print. 👍
Apart from that I like it might need to change my avatar though.
I definitely like that I can filter out certain long running topics in which I have no interest from appearing in the home page.
Everything is different, this is going to take some learning!
Yes it's way different from old site but loads faster on my phone than old site which is good.
Not sure if I like it. Hopefully it will get better
Once you get used to it and bugs and glitches are mostly fixed will be better.
I have had the odd problem tonight myself with new forum encountered a glitch were I typed a answer in reply and it went to another forum part that did not reply to lol 😂
