I think it will take time to get used to the new format, but for now, I click on Active Topics and it's a jumble of different categories all mixed together. Used to be, you'd see trip reports, Gotta Love Gear, Photography, The Lodge etc. Now it's just a disorganized list of random topics.

Looks like you can select "invisible mode" in your settings. I'll have to get together with a friend to see if it works.

It doesn't work. I've got mine of invisible mode but I can still see the places I go.

  • Add redirects from the old URLs to the new ones, Google has completely removed all of the useful content from its index and dropped CT's pagerank as far as I can tell. Maybe they're already in place, can't tell.
  • Add link to trail database in header.
  • Disable auto-subscriptions.
  • Remove "recent posts" from old ASP homepage since it's out of date now.
  • Fix images from migrated content.
  • Allow photos to be uploaded "inline". This is absolutely critical.
  • De-emphasize the "actions" under each post. It kills readability as you scan top to bottom across each post. Rather than big black buttons, consider smaller links or something similiar.
  • The default UTC date times will confuse anonymous visitors, and make most trip reports show up as the wrong date.
  • No way to see a user's trip reports easily.
  • A "garage" feature for a site devoted to self-powered recreation is a bad fit

+1

With emphasis on "images inline", and "disabling of automatic signatures."

It doesn't work on my iPhone.
Can't open pictures from the thumbnails in trip reports.
Logging in brought me to a blank screen of death.

New site is buggy, so it's hard to properly evaluate it. I'm not a fan of some of the monetization of the "human authenticator" (whatever you call it).

As a long time member, I'll give it a chance, as I've got a lot of content here. Maybe I just need to get used to it. But it's tough when you get used to an interface that is simple and works. As the saying goes...
"A user interface is like a joke: If you have to explain it, it's not that good."

The legacy CT interface was simple and intuitive to navigate. One or two clicks got you anywhere you wanted to go. Notwithstanding the need for general upgrades and tweaks I really don't think it should be changed much. Image uploading, moderating and editing functions etc. needed improvement but other than that, and prettying up the UI with some new pics, I think it should be left more or less as is.


Certainly some bugs in the new UI, eg. clicking image thumbnails in TR's does not work.

So how do you edit a reply you have posted? Also, it seems clicking on the thumbnails of 'uploaded' images fails but clicking on the thumbnails of 'attached' images works.

I would love to but I get this error:

I hope someone has mentioned a "Like" button, thumbs up or other method to +1 comments of others.. although I'd be surprised if that is not already in the cards?

I got this error yesterday, but I am not getting it today. Accordingly, I have posted with regard to comments in this feedback thread, in the other feedback thread.

FYI - this should be up and running soon.
