New site is pretty. Yes, I can navigate it. Do I like it? Is it easier? Is it easy on the eyes? NO! I DO NOT like green eggs and ham. I DO NOT LIKE THIS sam I am! Yep! I'm acting like a baby and I don't care. I do not like this here or there, I do not like this, it's not fair. Rant Over!

OMG, I HATE the new layout et al. I can't easily find which questions I have answered that have additional answers (I like to follow previous questions), I can't see how many new "helpful" answers I have since I last looked,

I hate everything about the new layout. And I usually like change. The "look" is pretty, but the functionality SUCKS in my book. I'll spend a bit more time on it, but I may be done with this website. UGH.

I also dont like this as the only option. With distressing issues why do you have to remove what has become comfortable and familar

The color scheme is horrible, its time consuming to navigate and it is not smartphone user friendly.

Took me an hour to find this!
I hate the new format.
Please bring back the old.
Or at least give us a choice. It was far better when we could use the old style. The new one was still there for all to see IF THEY WISHED TO!
This is getting me really depressed. I am usually a 'glass half full' Now my glass is empty.

I’m only in my 30s and I think this new layout is awful! The old layout was much easier to navigate. Especially when you are using a phone. This is just awful.

Sorry, guys, but this is awful. On the "home" page, the horizontal list of questions, etc., doesn't fit on the screen --- the fourth item is cut off on the right margin. When I scroll to the next screen, the same item is cut off on the left margin. I tried adjusting the font size (until I couldn't read it) and dragging the margins (didn't work). This looks like change for the sake of change, rather than for the sake of the user.

I don’t like the horizontal scrolling either...I don’t bother with it, just click on the pale blue heading Recent Questions and it will give you a list.

Didnt they have anyone older than 40 on the development team? Sigh.

The new format would be great if the demographics of the people who use AgingCare were decades younger.... but many of us here are seniors ourselves. Thus, any software change can be mind boggling.

I just realized I need to change the option of oldest post first, which I am use to... it just makes more sense when there is a discussion going on.

P.S. Once again I had to change the option of oldest post first after I had posted this comment. Is there anyway to "lock in" the option to "Oldest First"?

I agree FF, there’s something buggy about retaining the sort choices. I am trying to sort by Most Recent. On some posts it retains that choice. Going to other posts it reverts to Most Helpful. Which is a pretty lame sort anyway. Who is to say it’s actually “helpful”... I assume it’s got the most likes? Which is nice but I can’t imagine wanting to sort that way.
