On my laptop it keep defaulting to my cursor being in the “search” bar so I can’t scroll unless I click the main page first. It is really annoying.

I like it better than the old one, but I agree the search bar is in the way.

The floating bar doesn’t bother me much, but I also really hate digging through to find the stuff I’m following.  Haven’t tried search yet but the old one was terrible – they’d be hard put to make it worse.

Anyone know if they’ve locked up dead threads so people can look but not touch?  That would be a nice change.

The floating bar is terrible if you click on someone’s name to see the post they are replying to.* For example, pretend I’m replying to skunktastic :  in this post. If you click on their name, it’ll scroll up to their post, but the floating bar will cover up the text, because it comes up every time you scroll up! I would like it much more if the floating bar was visible when I dragged my cursor over it, not when I’m scrolling up!

*This feature needs to be fixed anyway, because it only works if the reply and original post are on the same page.

Additionally, finding anything is a huge pain now. And when I tried to upload a photo using my mobile device, the website kept telling me I wasn’t logged in.

My concern is that it didn’t fix the constant problem of redirects when I’m on mobile.

MrsAtlantis :  I think this might be a browser problem, not a WeddingBee problem. It happens to me on some other websites as well.

milena :  The problem is not that it redirects to ads or spam sites, but i’ll just be sitting on the home page not touching anything and it’ll redirect me to the wedding only forum.

Has anyone else had trouble staying logged in? Even though I have clicked stay logged in I get bumped out every 20 mins or so.

Also I find it is jumpy. I might click on one post to open it up and the post before or after it opens up.

The floating bar is annoying.

I also hate the floating bar, like what’s the point really? Saving you the 2 seconds it would take to scroll back up to the top?

I personally look at this site in secret because I’m not anywhere close to getting married and I don’t want anyone thinking I’m 120% wacko…now I don’t feel as comfortable looking at it on my phone with people around. Can’t I just have forum drama and discreetness all at once? Lol

My guess is this is intended to be more mobile friendly — note the hamburger navigation. But it’s not without its problems.
