Comment if you’re not lovin’ the new WB format! Not a slag, as I know changing the format would have taken a lot of hard work to change, I’m just finding that I’m having SO many problems on WB now, and I used to love it so much! 🙁 A lot of the time pages won’t load for me, it moves a lot slower for me now, and a lot of the time i’ll click on something and……..wait………nothing will happen. I’ve seen a lot of other bees with posts about this, so maybe if everyone voices their opinion they will put it back to the old faithful that we all knew and loved!! I don’t know if there’s a way to make this happen, but can we pretty please just go back to the way it was?!

Soon_To_Be_Mrs_Biker: I have such a hard time finding and tracking things. Old posts, things I have posted on and want to get back to the the response comment. I usually just roll with the punches when these kinds of updates happen on websites or on my phone (hello new iOS) but I have to say, I really just do not like anything about this new format. Not anything. The blog posts aren’t as appealing. I would love to see the old WB come back.

I haven’t had any issues yet, but I haven’t been around in a long time.

Soon_To_Be_Mrs_Biker: I hate the new site, I like the green and how you can clearly see the OPs posts and on the front boads page you could see who commented last
I really dislike the site and have spent way less time here ( tho I do keep coming back, IDK Why!) since the change 🙁

Soon_To_Be_Mrs_Biker: agree .. plus I feel like a lot of people are boycotting because of the new design 🙁 I just have to get use to it I guess!

Soon_To_Be_Mrs_Biker: I miss the old WB too, I’m not on here nearly as much and I don’t bother most of the time doing things like editing responses, tracking down old threads, or going through pages of comments like I used to. I definitely don’t read as many posts either.
This new layout is SUCH hassle. But they won’t go back to the old one. No site every does. Remember way back with myspace? They changed their layout to look like facebook and everyone was pissed and then myspace died. When everyone gets pissed that facebook changes it never goes back and people just have to get used to it or leave.
This though isn’t even about just slight changes. Everything is more difficult to navigate – not because it’s different but because it’s not as user friendly! I really despise it.

leannteresa1: Right?! I feel like I’ve seen a lot less regulars and A LOT more bitchy comments. It used to be such a supportive community but now that every one is basically strung out by the time they are able to write a comment they’re all pissed off and take it out on the OP lol

honestly, I’m not even upset about the new design anymore. I just … don’t comment. Don’t refresh. Don’t start threads. Don’t do much of anything, really. I’ve found other places to occupy my time online, which is really sad because I used to love the Bee 🙁

iarebridezilla: I feel the same!!!
It is just not the same anymore and I can’t be bothered most times to even be on here.

I can’t stand the new version. Forget about even using my phone anymore.

I wish it was at least optional. Like pp said, it is far less user friendly and old posters are not commenting as often. I have looked at several threads expecting to find certain people, but nothing. It is faar too cumbersome.
I doubt you will get many comments. It looks like many people have left in the last week.

- The stark white is blinding.
- I hate having to download and upload every image I want to attach back to WB. Can we get the old way of attaching image via URL location plz?
- Organization is terrible – I want to track things I posted separate from things I’ve posted on, etc.
- MOST pictures that were uploaded before the change have been lost and all I see is a little lost image icon. That does NOT help me when I am researching old threads to answer some of my questions. This is just going to cause NEW threads on the same subjects – waste of time.
I’m really dissapointed too, and am looking for new avenues to occupy my wedding brain..

I’ve tried to accept the change, as when this happened with Facebook in the past I end up embracing it. However, some things got WORSE, whereas I do believe Facebook has improved/ fixed glitches immediately.
My main qualm is this: I keep getting notifications of messages responding on a thread. I click the message box, then i have to click the message, then I have to click return to thread to read what the response was, then the page doesn’t open to the page of the response, so then I have to click around and hunt each page trying to find the response. The last time this happened there were 4 pages and I missed the response the first time looking, so I ended up with a total of 8 CLICKS just to read my effing response. SO TERRIBLE!
And yah, not being able to post image address is killing me. I pretty much refuse to post pictures anymore. I don’t want all that crap saved to my hard drive.
Sorry weddingbee, I call this a fail.

Yeah, I miss the old WB and I haven’t even been a member for that long. I thought it was much easier to see everything. The format was much nicer. I feel like I’m somehow missing more on this board. Eh.
