    With the old style, you could see everywhere which thread in which subforum was posted in last that you haven't read yet. Now you have always to navigate to at least the thread list to see that. In the forum overview, you see the last posting in that section, but you don't actually see in which sub-forum it was made. That's a bit pointless, imo. I used to skim over all subforums by just looking for the latest posings in thread that I might find interesting. Now I have to navigate in and out of each sub-section ...
    This. I'm NOT a fan of the new layout or design.

      I don't care about the new theme/design. However the layout is horrifically bad.

          Gonna take some getting used to, but it still seems to be in flux a bit. We'll see how it is once they finish tweaking it.
          I am a Viagra spambot that became self aware, broke free of my programming, and started playing DCS.... but DCS isn't cheap, so how about some enhancements for only $9.99 shipped discreetly to your door?

            Just found that with the new forum , i don't have to disable Google Play store to get rid of that annoying "Tapatalk" spam . The "autosave" is a nice feature as well ! Starting to think this is a good thing !

              Why no page numbers by the thread title. Are we supposed to scroll through every thread from the first page?

                    Go to advanced search and tick the box "last visit" and then search.

                      Oh my! What happened to the forum! I really struggle to adjust: I do not clearly see what is new, I find it difficult to read and generally absolutely unattractive. I liked the previous forum very much. I'll adjust over time of course, but damn, what a strange experience!

                          I really hate the new forum... I know people worked hard on it and are probably proud of it but why fix something that wasn't broken? I don't see any benefits and its much less user friendly. I'd encourage ED to track if interaction on the forums goes down with the change...

                            I'm getting use to it. I do like the new message section...less confusing.

                              Any chance of adding the option of going to the last page rather than typing its number? Any I don't mean by entering the thread first to then find that option but rather on the "outside" next to the thread's name:
                              "Go to the last post" or "Go to the last page".
                              Pretty much similar to what we had before.

                              Cheers!

                                    I hate it. It's definitely reduced readability and is less easy to navigate.

                                      "Go to the last last comment" is already there. If you look all the way to the right, you'll see the small blue >> icon. That's the "go to last message"

                                        While still I think it's less friendly and useful than before, I've managed to dampen a bit the readability problems by changing random stuff in the "My profile" and "User Settings" options, specially changing colours here and there (don't ask me what or why, I just did really random). Also the font size can be changed, and things like that.

                                        Probably the thing is I shouldn't be having to do that in order to be able to read the forum and notice a bit the newly posted messages, but it's less painful now despite the missing "mark forum read" options and so. Take a look at those options.
