BelliniChic:  Don’t know if you’ll see this, but if so: when you edit your post, there should be a place under the comment box where it says something like “log that this post was edited” or something.  If you uncheck that box, it won’t put that annoying little icon and time under your edited post.

Well, I wasn’t able to log in initially to that was annoying. I also really really hate the “Related Posts” box. Just look at the posts there are supposedly related to this thread: disappointment in bridesmaids and selling a wedding dress. Wtf? If you’re going to have a feature like that then make sure the algorithms actually make sense.

lolot:  Oh thank you! I will give it a try! 🙂

 

Edited to add:

OK I went back to my previous posts from about 15 mins. ago and I’m no longer able to edit them so that I can un-check that log button. But I do see it here on this post, so thanks again for letting me know.

 

I think under the old format we were able to edit up to one hour after posting. Seems under the new format we only have 15 mins. or so? Not sure.

I can’t log in on my computer anymore. It goes through loading but never actually logs my in.  Had four friends try and they can’t log in either.

My first impression was that it was a nice fresh new look however i’ve quickly come to realise that (in my opinion) its just not as user friendly.. I don’t like the new layout and a number of things PP’s have pointed out such as the OP box and the ‘new message’ feature that used to appear at the top right of the page (now it just tells you how many messages you have in your inbox, not whether they’re new or not..)

Hopefully a few of these things are fixed as they work through teething problems! I’d hate for the site to be permanently less user friendly as i’m on here ALL the time lol

Well I haven’t given my opinion yet because I haven’t been able to log in!  Ugh.  Glad that is fixed!

I hate to say that I very much dislike the changes for most of the reasons PPs have stated.  It really is hurting my eyes.  Also, not being able get to the last page of a thread on my phone is really frustrating.  I also think the ads are now huge.  And I dislike not being able to see bee level colors and the box around the OPs replies throughout a thread.

heathaah:  +1 I wouldn’t even attempt to go onto the new WeddingBee from my phone for that very reason.

BelliniChic:  Sure 🙂  Yeah my post above is only 8 minutes old and there’s no option for editing either.  But I know I did edit a different post earlier today.  Either the window for editing is like 5 minutes, or that’s another bug at the moment…

ETA: HMM!  This was editable when I looked again after 1 minute.  Maybe it just is the world’s shortest editing window.  I clicked off that box so there shouldn’t be that dumb little icon below

I am not a fan of the new Weddingbee. Is there an option to use the old. I hate this white its really hurting my eyes. I also don’t like that it is not as easy to navigate, slower to load pages. And the part im want to read and see is now less than half the page. I know there was a lot of work but I really don’t like it. I wonder why there is no poll.

I hate it, and I see my useage of the site going WAY down. I can’t even read only any more, it hurts my eyes too much. The font is weird, the colors are weird, I hate that you can’t see differences between comments anymore (the shades were so helpful in just making things easier to read).

I think for a site that gets most of its traffic directed to it’s boards, this is super not user friendly.

kmb727:  It took me 15 minutes to find your response because the mail box link did not jump directly to your response. I hate to be negative, too, but the more I have been on this the more I have grown to dislike it :/ … Maybe they will switch it back. I can’t even appreciate the white.

I’m sad that all the threads that I was ‘following’ all seem to have disappeared 🙁
