classic

I'm a newer member but I went back to classic also. I find it easier on the eyes and less antiseptic looking. But then again I hate change anyway!!:grin3:

Win7 Opera

Only in classic new standard shows up.

I just checked and mozilla works but I don't like mozilla at all.

Whew...just went back to a popular Yamaha Venture forum that i have not used in two years, had to pay $12 for a years subscription, i did this because i have 4 Ventures now.
But the site is kinda wonky, like a Chrysler wiring system, and it will not accept image uploads from my tablet. Its a shame though, they have helped me years ago on my Ventures, i think they did an upgrade too.

But because of that little issue i will just lurk and read over there,i am customizing the latest Venture Royale, so i might post some progress here as it will mirror my custom Goldwings. I would dearly love to build a digital age Mk2 Venture, touch screen radio, gps, bluetooth, cameras etc for a bike show, already bought some parts.

So though i am in classic mode i am thankful this forum is KISS. Images load very easy.

Sounds like a lot of folks would argue that the new design IS the glitch, but I've stumbled upon something for the IT team to have a look at.... As I was browsing this particular thread I realized that the links inside the thread do NOT work anymore, they just link back to the main page:

1500 Rear Air Shock Rebuild

I found links to other related threads. When I clicked on them, I was directed back to the forum home page. Tried it several times with the same results. However, I copied the links from the thread and pasted into my browser search bar and the threads showed up in the search, and were fully accessible- just not via the links in the thread!

If it helps, I'm using Windows 8.1 :crying2: and Firefox 36.0.4 (yeah, I need to update). I would include a screenshot but it's just gonna be a picture of the homepage. After conversing with a moderator about this we've concluded it's not a one-off issue. Broken links are no good, but at the same time I understand the need to "clean house" when it comes to *antiquated* code. I've seen stuff like this before and it usually gets sorted out eventually. The folks who run and maintain this site could use some honest-to-goodness feedback and bug reports >:) I could type "this new format sucks and I'm going back to the old format" over and over like Bart Simpson writing on his chalkboard- that only tells the IT guys that I know how to throw a tantrum... A brief synopsis of the problem along with what browser and OS you're running and a screen capture would go a bit further helping get the kinks worked out. Oh, an easy way to get a screen capture for those who've never done that: Look for the PRT SC key, on my craptop it's bundled under the END key, I have to use the FN and PRT SC keys at the same time. This "takes the picture". Then open up a Paint document or similar and use the PASTE function- should drop the screen capture right in. Save as JPEG, BMP or whatever flavor of picture and upload it. Hope that helps.
I have the team working on this now, stand by for updates.

oops, I guess I must be in the "unpopular" grouping, this yellow background really sucks, I liked it the way it was. Oh well....

Change for changes sake, I think. Sign of the times.

Thank heavens for the classic view, I was about to quit until I found that.

As for mobile.................. It's a good job I need my phone to make calls or I would have pitched it.

What happened to all the info that used to be on the front page, I wanted to look something up and I have no idea where to go.

PS you know where you can put sidebars................

All the home page stuff is under Tools - GWF - in the drop drop-down menu at the top of the screen.

Yes but I got them to switch the new version back to your fav color.

Hopefully you switch back, not sure if we can add it in legacy/classic, I will check.

Okay, I am in the New Format version, and the Yellow is all washed out. No color saturation, get someone who can see colors to fix it....

it must match the Legacy Yellow.

Okay, the new Tools Menu is now quite useful, like the fact that you immediately search for your own threads instead of having to go to your own Profile with was a PITA..
