Billsgirl:  yeah, I’m not a fan either…all my favorite features are gone. When I go to the list of threads I’ve replied on, I can’t see when the most recent reply was…and I have to click around so much more to get to what I want to see. So annoying!

I’m trying to be optimistic here, but I just hate the new layout! I can’t find anything, and coming on WB has frozen my computer twice now, which it never has before. ETA: My post count has gone done from almost 1,700 to just under 1,200 too. I’m confused!

I am seriously thinking of ‘leaving’. wedding planning is stressful enough without this crap!  Improvements fine but this isn’t improved at all!

Hey Ladies! There’s no revert function, the new layout is here to stay. But that said, they’re going to continue to de-bug and tweak over the coming weeks and months. I think you’ll see a fix for most of the issues that are apparent today. Only so much comes out in beta testing, but when you give the whole membership access, the bugs float to the top quickly!

cestvrai:  You can see the most recent reply to your threads both commented and followed. Go to “My profile” and then select “Boards.” You can either choose “Threads I commented” (which isn’t grammatically correct, but I digress) or “Threads I started.” Either way the list will come up, and you can see the number of posts and the last comment time estimate right next to the OP handle. Hope that helps!

beetee123:  I’m also seeing a 1653 post count for you. Is that incorrect?

beetee123:  Your post count is showing up as 1653 to me (:

I feel like this version of WB is a step backwards, but I’m trying to be optimistic that they’ll reintroduce some of the features from the old WB to make everyone’s lives easier. If not…well at least my wedding is in June aha. I had really wanted to stay after our wedding, but now I’m not too sure.

beetee123:  Ugh my post count is lower than before too. It was 4700-ish before and it’s showing up as 4575 to me 🙁 I’m assuming to everyone else it shows my correct number of posts though.

sugarpea:  It fixed itself now! This seriously looks like the WB I imagine it would look like in the early 2000s! LOL I usually spend like an hour during my work break surfing WB each day, but as soon as I saw it like this I was like, “well, I guess I have to find something else to do!” My wedding isn’t for another year, but I’m not so sure if I’ll be staying on the bee if I can’t figure this layout out. It reminds me of when MySpace changed! LOL

Mrs.LemonDrop:  That’s correct. As soon as I edited the post it started showing it at the correct number again! LOL of course!

Billsgirl:  Are they serious!!? I’d assumed the website was broken and this was the text version it reverted to, temporarily. You mean this layout is permanent?? This makes me sad.

Yeah, I have a lot of gripes right now, but I’m trying to be hopeful.  Like Mrs.LemonDrop said, with any big change like this, there are going to be bugs and issues, but from my history on WB, I think they will be quickly addressed (user experience is really important here!  When I’m seeing post after post with the same complaints, I have to believe that they will soon be addressed).
