    new layout is a pia......previously all the latest discussion was in one heading. Now you have to hunt through endless headings....absolutely stuffed it all.

    If you go to your preferences you can select the old layout.

    The problems with the mobile layout largely disappear when you go into landscape view.

    However, if I have to use landscape mode it will drive me to distraction. I tend to use the site on a mobile platform 90% of the time these days, so it's pretty important to me.

    I have been using it ... but it now seems to have disappeared that dropdown list seems to have gone, I cant find it :( so I no longer have a choice to use the old style

    The new style really REALLY sux :( it's dreadful ...
    all the right side info has gone.
    trying to find the basic info that used to be present is somewhere between difficult and impossible :(

    there no right hand lists of ....
    who's online
    latest threads
    staff online

    to name 3 that I remember

    sad to say, but the forum layout as it is now is just a pale shadow of its former glory :( :(

    I tried valiantly to use the new layout, but I've had to go back to the old format to regain lost functionality (especially, but not limited to the mobile platform).

    I've reported some of the problems with the new format, but our new administrators must be too busy to address them.

    I'm back to the old format. The menu is still there, or was at least until just before Christmas.

    And now that I need to do a search, I find I'm in the new format and I have no access to the advanced search or the ability to change back to the old format :-(

    I had a look yesterday and the old style wasn't available to select, but it looks like it's back on the account preferences page now. Give it another whirl and see if it's back again - I'm using the old style atm and it all seems ok (although I still have admin permissions for now, which may make a difference).

    I'm magically back in the old format. And the option to change formats is back.

    Thanks... whoever...

    Sorry about that all, that was an error while I was tweaking things in the backend. As mentioned, the old style will always remain available.
