With all the problems I'm having now, I don't like it.. too cluttered.

What I've noticed right away is problems with mobile viewing. I use my IPad for using this forum, and when I post a new topic now, I have to play with it a little bit to get the screen to move up and down. It was working great before, and I like the idea of infinite scroll, but problems with the mobile viewing are not pleasing.

I'd rather scroll through pages instead of this with these problems. The pages are easier to reference certain posts as well.

If your having problems like mine or you don't like it cluttered, just go down and hit "Classic Next gen" instead of the infinite scroll options and it will go back to being like were used to.

Yeah, I've done that multiple times. Even set it to classic next gen in my CP options. Still defaults to another format and I have to change it every time I use a mobile device (ipad, iphone).

Nope, don't like it. Like the others, it's a problem to load and view.

What happened to to unread threads in bold print vs the read the read threads???

AND...

Now, when I try to view the forum on my phone by expanding (zooming in), the top header and banners expand, taking up all of the viewing real estate! This is in "desk top view" mode, I am not a big fan of the mobile version.

Yeah. Same here. Now it looks like every dang thread in the forum is un-read.

!!!!! Yes It is annoying and NEEDS To be fixed! Personally i think it should have been left alone. If it aint broke don't fix it.

I like the other site better. I happen top like clear large reading windows where you can see more than just the few sentences at a time. The top bar should disappear when scrolling and there should not be anything top or bottom of the pane being used. Sidebar stuff doesn't bug me much. I can tune it out or look at it as I need.

Thanks for the feedback! We are working on hiding the top bar when scrolling on smaller screens, but not so much on moving anything to the sidebar, although I see why that could be a good idea.

To be more clear sidebar stuff isn't annoying as long as it is not flashing or trying to get my attention.
