The only issue I have found is size, I have had to reduce to 75%.
The new post shortcut works.

On my android tablet running 6.0.1 on the home page, the main picture has the following underneath.
1(in blue)               1.(black)
2 2 (in blue)
3 3 (in blue)
Continues to 5

Weird but bring back the new posts listing and button

I have the new posts button. Never really used it before, but will have to with the new layout, as it seems designed to confuse the eyes.

Unlike the old recent posts button which showed all the recent posts whether or not you had read them, the new posts button only shows the posts made since you last accessed the button. If you want to mull things over before posting a reply, you have to find the actual topic it was posted under on the forum among the multitude. The old recent posts page brought up all the topics which had had a post in the last x days and made it easier to find a particular thread.

Also I seem to recall that the old recent posts button took you to the last post made on that thread. The new posts takes you to the beginning of a thread and not the new post. Makes for tedious flipping through pages of posts on some threads.

Its still there,click on new posts, theres a drop down menu to show posts since last visit, a number of hours, days, weeks etc, top left above the list

Hopefully image below works

Agreed you can get it that way. Just thought that it would be easier if we still had the recent posts button which automatically showed these up.

I have been listening to your thoughts, everyone. I will be having a chat with Mark and looking at what changes we need to make, though I have got a week's holiday first, so please bear with me.

My apologies if you feel things are more difficult; we certainly did not want to make life harder with the new look.

Sorry, but the new site is a serious step backwards IMHO.

Without question it's harder to navigate, the layout is far too busy & confusing and you can't just look at dinghy (or keel boat) articles in the way you could before. Plus in places it reads like it's been edited/created by someone who can't read, write or speak english or is simply dyslexic.

Other than that it's great...........NOT!!! Please sort it out a.s.a.p.

I dunno, it doesn't seem *that* different to me. If you can't remember quite what the old one looked like go to http://web.archive.org/web/20160308170030/http://www.yachtsandyachting.com/

Most of what I did I do in the same way now. I don't think I'd go so far as to say I prefer the new look though.

Its very interesting to me the difference between having two narrow columns of advertisements, one each side and one wide one. It certainly makes the animation of the ads more in your face, and of course they are paying the bills and we aren't.

Worth looking at the Sail-World site. If you figure that's the house style the boys have to conform to then they don't have too many choices.

In their place I might be tempted to looking at putting a bare left margin on the forum pages once they get to a reasonable width, which I think would make it a bit more readable on larger devices.

The previous version of the website continues to operate at old.yachtsandyachting.com if you wish to use that version.

Just to clarify: YachtsandYachting.com owns Sail-World.com (not the other way around).
