    Re: 45

    Maybe that was it -- trying to edit after 15 mins. I have since been able to edit posts.

    Thanks for checking. :-)

    Wonder if there was a website accessibility expert involved? Still have no search function on the phone unless I switch to full site.

    The symbols for notifications and messages are ridiculously small in a sea of white space. Some of us here are age-challenged.

    @twinsmama Some of us that are closer in age to the twins have trouble seeing it. :)

    @klbmom18 I’m using the app on my phone and I have the magnifying glass icon for doing a search in the upper right corner.

    Hi @surfcity the magnifying glass is now back!

    ^ Click on your user name at the very top, then click on "inbox" on the top left.

    If you are using an iPad....the little envelope for your PMs is right in the middle of the top of this page...next to your screenname.

    Uh-oh. When you do an advanced search, say for a poster, you can't read the highlighted name. It's the dark blue over the black letters.
    Adding: hard enough on the tablet, worse on the phone.

    WHY are these changes happening?????
  • jym626jym626 Registered User Posts: 56,052 Senior Member
    Rats. Now all the previously banned posters have the same new avatar. It was much more helpful when they still had the old CC avatar.
  • surfcitysurfcity Registered User Posts: 2,408 Senior Member
    @jym626 "previously banned"? What does that mean? Does it have something to do with the little jail bars I recall seeing on people's avatars?

    My thoughts:
    • I like the redesign in general.
    • I particularly feel that the header is a sleeker/less obnoxious look. However, it's too large, vertically speaking—it takes up too much vertical space (using Chrome on my laptop) that could be better filled with content.
    • Most of what I use CC for is the forums, and they're still quite clunky, really. Are we ever going to get an update to their architecture to make them more easily usable (e.g., being able to search for a forum name directly rather than having to scroll through the list in the advanced search)?
