I'm not sure where to post this, so I have posted here to say that I don't think much of the new forum interface. Unread posts are no longer displayed in bold type, so at a quick glance, I have difficulty in knowing which posts I've read and which ones I haven't read. I also miss the 'No of Replies' and 'No of Views' columns.

I understand that this is nothing to do with the SD team, but perhaps you could pass my comments back to the forum software developers please.

Edited to add:-

Also, where are the 'likes' and 'star' columns?

Mike

I have passed this on. I agree it's no longer as obvious when there are changes in a thread/forum (the old bold).

What is this funny mountain favicon?

Maybe an SD logo would be better?

I totally agree Shifu. The new interface is a step backwards in my opinion. There was absolutely nothing wrong with the interface as it was. To coin a phrase -- if it ain't broke, don't fix it!

In the mean time there is a big Unread button on the first page (see top left below the Slydemon topbar)

...which isn't very useful when I have a bookmark that takes me straight to 'Latest' and if I do use the 'big Unread button' I find that there are posts that I have NOT read which are NOT listed!

Yes, maybe... but as I pointed out in my previous post above, the UNREAD button doesn't always work as it should. I sometime find that there are posts that are  unread, which are NOT listed.

Definitely a retrograde step IMO. Just consider the features we had in the "old" interface which are missing from the "new" interface:-

1. No column for 'Likes'
2. No column for 'Stars'
3. No column for 'Views'
4. No column for 'Replies'
5. Topic/Threads no longer highlighted in bold type when there are new and unread posts

and the "new" interface doesn't even display properly because of a style sheet malfunction, as highlighted by Shifu. Although, I seem to recall that this is a recent manifestation. I'm reasonably certain that this display problem was not present when the "new" interface was first launched.

BTW: the "new" version refuses to remember my login (Mac OS X).

On Android, the new forum refuses to let me log in at all! All I get is a page of Java-esque error messages and stack-traces!
