I’ve been pulling back from WeddingBee a bit lately because I felt I was starting to spend a bit too much time on it, LOL. This might be the kick in the pants I need to do something more productive with my time!

SweetartMD:  It does look like The Knot!


I must say, I was a bit disappointed at the reaction of “Well, it’s here to stay” despite the overwhelming thumbs down given by all the bees I’ve seen commenting on this and other threads. I understand that work went into the new format, but perhaps it’s time to admit defeat? 


Somehow I doubt that will be the outcome. The ads will need to be even bigger if fewer of us use the site!

I didn’t read through the whole thread (I’m sure I already know what it all says) but I have to agree that this “new” WB is pretty horrible! I’ve been around since 09 and this is just ridiculous. It’s difficult to navigate, the layout for threads doesn’t even make sense (comments way at the bottom under “related (not so related) threads” , and worst of all I feel like I’m on fb with the way you can see pictures right on the main boards page like a newfeed. UGH!

I’ve been around to get ideas planning my moms upcoming wedding and think I may go back to sticking on Pinterest and other wedding ideas sites. No bueno at all. :/

p.s. I’m pretty sure my post count is wrong too…..???

Hislittlebee:  I’m way more than ‘a bit’ disappointed. My biggest fear is that we r stuck like this regardless of what the VAST majority of users think.

Two things I hate:

1. It’s not as simple to see when a thread was last commented on.

2. You can’t skip to the last page anymore and I do not have time to scroll through 15 pages by hitting ‘next page’  over and over again.

Mrs.LemonDrop:  Sorry if someone else has already mentioned this, but can the site please not show previews of pics in threads when someone is just looking at the boards or at wedding related list of threads?  I’m guessing a few bees, like me, might be surfing the bee during downtime at work and avoid any threads showing pics.  On the old site, only titles of threads showed, so I could just avoid the posts that I knew would have huge pics & immediately alert anyone walking by my desk as to what I was looking at.  But, now, I can’t even scan through a list of threads withouth having huge pics showing from each thread that has pictures.  thanks

I will say, I just logged in during my lunch break and my inbox is back to zero unread messages. That appears to have at least been fixed. I think before it said I had 145 unread messages and would have to manually click on each one. That is an improvement at least! Anyone else notice this?

TheOkieWifey:  Yup, I noticed it.  And I can login now, too.  Yesterday I kept trying to login and it just kept redirecting me to the login screen.  So frustrating.

But, fixing these things doesn’t make up for the fact that I can’t easily follow threads I was contributing to.  It’s just too hard to find things now.  New look?  Fine; I can adjust.  Take away features I use?  Not cool.

It’s frustrating enough that I might stop coming here.  I’ve been spending too much time here anyway…it’s probably a good thing.

Shkragoldfish:  I’m not a developer and I don’t work for weddingbee. I think what you’re saying is a good idea. Why don’t you put it in the ideas page so the support people can see it and other users can support you?
