    New Lounge layout

    Since yesterday I've noticed what seem to be on going layout changes.

    The Thanks button was intermittent but has now vanished so that we can no longer thank someone for their informative input.

    Why have a New Posts and a Today's Posts (Quick Links) with the former in some cases, showing multiple links for the same thread as when using the Today's Posts links, you would see the recent ones anyway when selecting them - although when previously having newly contributed to a thread, your post was not listed in the New Posts while registered, but I'd still like whomever it concerns, to give us back what we had and stop trying to fix something that isn't broken.

    It's akin to having come back from the pub to find that your partner has changed the furniture around and that your favourite chair is no longer where you like it to be

    I second that. I liked the thanks button.

    Keep the comments coming, please; any bugs, improvements, regressions noticed, etc., let's see if we can get it fixed up to our liking before the builders leave the premises

    Me three, the site does seem to be loading pages much more consistently so far though not enough time has passed to determine that for sure.

    Maybe I'm blind (usually the case), but I can't find the editing buttons (underline, bold, italics, etc). I wish they were still on the screen.

    It does not look like that. I am unable to upload a screen shot, but I don't have the editing buttons.

    Perhaps something is set wrong in my profile, but I can't find anything which would have any impact on this.

    I have enabled the option to choose skins, Jim, so maybe try a different one and see if it helps.

    There's an unnamed box with a "Quick Style Chooser" drop-down menu on a bar near the bottom of the screen, on the left, the bar which has "Contact Us"... on the right.

    I had "-- Win" in mine originally, but I find "-- Lounge" to be just fine.

    This is what I got today on opening WS, is this correct?
    Where can I see the latest newsletter and the archived newsletters? Before all this was available from the bar.

    BATcher, Lounge isn't an option in my browser but I do have the formatting button with 'Win'. I tend to agree that the changes are too many and regret the passing of the thanks button. I know it got misused, but that's no reason to get rid of it (though their may be other reasons!). Each page appears to have lots more white space, so it all takes up more window area (more scrolling).

    I'm sure I'll get used to it (after all, I did with Win 8!)

    Quick style chooser doesn't let me select anything. I had wanted to change from WIN because the posts are showing up in narrow columns, but the drop-down menu doesn't allow me to select another choice.

    How to rectify this? Thanks

    I chose "Win" -- "Lounge" wasn't available. I now see the editing bar.
