A few days away from WB and I come back at it’s all change! I like:

  1. The preview pictures 
  2. The new design
  3. The text editing tools! 

I do wish for a spell checker though.

I’m probably the only one but I like the thread preview text. I could do without the picture previews but I don’t hate them. A recent example was someone posted a thread ‘Tell me about Turkey!?’ or something and I was like ‘Well… it’s delicious!’

Nope, I read the thread preview and realized it was travel and not food related. 🙂

I mentioned this on another thread, but when I first joined I wasn’t a fan of the layout at all. I thought it was difficult to navigate and just so different from any other forum I’d ever been a part of. This one is closer to the common message board layout that I’m familiar with. 

But now it’s hard to get use to it and I find myself missing the old way, the one I hated at first. So I know there’s just a learning curve and it will take some time to get use to. 

The main thing is that WB is amazing and it’s the content of the site that matters, not the looks.

I like the new logo.  I like the new sorting features.  The rest of it I’m sure I’ll adjust to, like anything else that’s new.  Not a biggie.

The avatars and text are bigger. The white background is brighter.

I REALLY like the new color scheme. I must say, I like it a lot. (I know it is glaring for some people, but I guess it depends on the device you are using).

I notice it doesn’t say “slow down, you’re posting too fast” or whatever anymore if I comment twice in quick succession. But that’s the only thing I like.

I really like the overall look.  The old site always just felt so dated to me.  The colors and graphics are more modern and professional now.  It’s funny because some people were complaining that the new boards look dated, but I think it looks much better now.

While I eventually got very used to it I remember when I first saw the old site being very confused, like WTF are all these weird animal icons (on the blog posts).  The front page is much more inviting to new people now.  As for the boards I’m still getting used to everything so it’s hared to tell what I like so far.

I love that on the ideas board the tech team is letting us know what they’re working on from our suggestions! 

There are lots of fixes coming soon 😀

AB Bride:  We all notice the things we don’t like before the things we do like – but the tech team worked hard on this and they didn’t get it all wrong – there are definitely some things they got right!

Also, I like that I can actually post now.  On the old site for some reason I often couldn’t get post to show up.  Like I’d type out a whole long response and click post and the screen would just load forever or give me a network error.  It was always if I had had the window open a long time or it was a long post.  It was some weird glitch, my work computer just didn’t like the site or vise versa, but I haven’t had that problem at all with the new site.

AB Bride and all for the support! We are really working omgzovertime to jujj the new site to get it to a place where it’s the best experience possible for the community. (Broken record here) We’re monitoring the Ideas board (https://weddingbee.uservoice.com/forums/241844-submit-your-idea) like crazy and prioritizing the next couple weeks based on feedback – I’ve been actively updating it after our meetings, so everyone knows what we have on deck, what’s planned, and what we’re working on implementing right this second.

Sincerely appreciate the positive feedback as well – this is helpful so we don’t pull back anything that you love! 🙂
