Is this happening to everyone right now?
Yeh, seems to be broken.
Do you mean the main page at https://androidforums.com?
I'm seeing these two as identical right now when they are usually different:
It's possible they are working on the site.
If you want to sort by new unread posts:
All recent posts:
Yep. All I know is that I'm seeing the device names and their sub- forums instead of new threads like it used to be.
Phew! What relief, I was wondering if I was starting to see weird things again. I thought all those drugs I took in the early 80's finally caught up with me.
Okay so im not here to say it was a wrong decision but why am i being tooken to the brand choose page instead of the old way where you see what's newlt been posted?
Is it to prevent scammer and spammers from getting their posts much attention?
Is it because of a new direction?
Keep in mind the old way was better because yes it shiws the majot brands but not all like Google is a main brand etc and the page looks like someone really didnt care about how confusing it is to find what your looking for also it aslo got posts attention because people were able to see it and respond to it, ao what if a post never gets seen then it leaves the community in doubt either if AF is worth spending more time to figure out where is what and what is where see my problem,im fine with changes but making a page much simpler makes it a A+ for me and everyone
Im really confused lol
Lol i was upset casue im like what the f#!k is my phone broken lol
hate it as well. i hope it is just a bug or they are working on something. i really like the old way. it really makes helping members easier as their threads and posts are more visible.
yeah I didn't want to seem like a whiner, but I wondered what happened to the page showing new/unread posts.
Still appears normal on Tapatalk.
Yes it's ok on Tapatalk but buggered when using a browser. Custom views don't work, only the main page with the entire forum list shows up.
There's another thread on this-
It looks like something's broken.
Nope. Don't like it.
Please fix what wasn't broken.
I'll be contemplating whether or not to stay on this forum, which is one of the best, but this latest look/view is beyond anything I've ever seen.
The ui doesn't work at all, on any mobile browser.
I been complaining too.. Issue started last night, I think
I'm managing OK at the moment thanks to @kate's post. Usually I alternate between 'Forum Games' and 'Recent Posts' so I copied the 'recent' link and paste it when I've finished in 'Forum Games' , but it had better be only temporary!!.
Luckily I bookmarked the New Posts page and always click on that.
I've gotten/seen a lot of complaints that people are finding it impossible to find the forums they want which is why I swapped the homepage to be the browse page. We're working on adding sections for Google and some others that should make browsing easier. Hoping to add a few small widgets for top content as well.
The "News" link at the top was just replaced with "What's New" which has all the new posts that were formerly on the homepage. This makes things easier for 1st time visitors and an extra click for current members. I'm thinking we could have an option for members to be automatically routed to "What's New" if it's really that big of a PITA.
I think the link on the header is a fair enough compromise. Thanks for the update.
Can we get back the "quick links" dropdown? I always left it on Favorites so I would see only a list of posts in those sections but I can't do that now.
the what's new section works.. but when trying to move to page 2, it doesn't display page 2
So you mean "New in Favorites"?
It was just "Favorites" in the Quick Links. Gave a list of most recent posts filtered to only my favorite forums. For me that was the preferred default view but now it's not available.
Selecting Favorites from the left-side drop-down only gives a grid of forum links.
Are you talking about clicking this (
) on the bottom right of the screen and getting this menu?
Just tested and it worked going to page 2.
It shows up for me when viewing https://androidforums.com/whats-new/
Do you see it there @Fox Mulder?
