New site look

The new site look sucks. Can't stand it!

Anyone out there agree?

Lots of feedback on the forum change. I personally reverted back to the classic, but when on my phone or iPad it is a pain to force the classic.

Nice thank goodness I can switch back to the classic view! Thanks Rtfish.

Nope, dont care for it. Maybe it will grow on me.
I switched to the classic look and there is no "fourm" tab to send you to the fourm lists.

As I said on the thread discussing the new look, the only good thing about the "upgrade" is that we can revert back to the classic layout.

I sure do - as well as the many others who have spoken above.


I've also reverted to the classic look, which imo is far more appealing than the new format.
The classic version is elegant and professional, whereas to me the new look has a distinct 'grade school' feel to it, like a website designed to appeal more so to young children.
It's sad for me to see this, as TPT over time has attracted a huge membership, larger than any I've seen elsewhere, and I attribute part of that to the previous well-designed and functional approach to the site, which has remained better styled than all the other forums I've seen.

I actually love it! I think the updated look will help keep this forum alive for longer. To me, it looks fresh and modern and it's following the common design of a lot of things like windows and google, etc. Straight lines, thin borders, color blocking--all considered to be the new "art" direction for computers, tablets, and phones. Of course, it's all a matter of opinion. Don't hate me, but I thought the old look was very outdated

Maybe it takes time to get used to, but at least we can all choose the way we want to see it!

I love the new look. I too believe the old site look was far outdated. It's 2015 and the site finally look like it has a place in modern time.

Finally glade they made the change. Websites have to adapt to the technology available.

Please keep the discussion regarding the site's new appearance to the existing thread (linked in the second post).
