CakeCentral.com has a new look! - Page 7  

post #91 of 314
Could the advertising be any bigger?!?! Seriously, it takes up 1/3 of the page. I understand needing to make some money, but 1/3 of the whole page!!!! New design blows!

I like the cleaner look of the format, although I think many of the changes will take some getting used too.

I don't think I have anything really new, but to add my voice I would like to see the following.
-The Hottest Topics on the front page - I read these multiple times a day.
-A reply button at the bottom of the forum posts.
-My photos are also not showing up, but I understand this is a glitch and I assume they will reappear at some point. icon_lol.gif

I understand that you guys probably need the revenue from the ads since this is a free site, but they do seem really over-sized. I don't understand the large areas of white space either. Having the forums and ads squished in the middle is very displeasing to the reader.

I am not able to view any recipes, my favorites are gone and the advertisement strip is covering part of the discussion page so I can't view the discussion completely. Thanks Shonda Smith

So far I like the old way much better! I don't like the giant ads on the right, it takes away from the rest of the page and is too...in your face" so to speak! I'll be checking it out more as time goes on...

Where are my favs and my photos? I am confused! icon_razz.gif

There is an issue with the ads - at least in my browser. Not only are they too big, they cover half of the first three posts in the forum threads so I can't even read them properly.

I'm sure the bugs will get worked out, but when I click on "My Photos" I get an error message. I can only find them in my gallery. I am concerned because there is a big fundraiser coming up Friday and they had given the old link to my cakes on their fundraiser site. As the cakes raise up to $1,000 each it is important that people can preview my cakes. I don't have actual cakes at the event, just a display, and they order based on seeing my cakes on CakeCentral. Will they be forwarded to My Photos if they have the old link? Also, why would I be getting an error mesg. when I click on My Photos? Also like the # of views just so I know what my most popular cakes are so for the fundraiser I can feature them. I know we will all end up liking the new format.

I really wish you could see the number of views and Favorited on the my photos page. That was one of the reasons I like this site so much. It kinda fun to see how many people look at a certain cake. Will you bring that back please?

OK, I really like the new look, I have to get use to it, but I like, the only thing missing or I can't find is the "NEXT" button, that one I really going to miss if you took it out.

Ok - I'll put my 2 cents in. I like the new clean look. However, when I click on "My Saved Recipes", I get a blank page with an advertising banner smack-dab down the middle of the page, and I miss the stats on my photos also. The ads in the forums are so big they cover up the first 3 posts at least, which is frustrating.

I understand that ads are necessary in order to keep the site going - - I get that. But with this new layout, you're telling every baker on this site that the advertisers are more important and will receive more consideration, and more space.

I'm sure the little glitches and bugs will be taken care of as time goes on and you get to them; the problems that most of us have with the ads, well, that's a decision you'll have to make - - where are your priorities?

I cannot access my photos from the menu + I miss those stats too

The clean look is nice, but the actual content (i.e. forum threads and posts) takes up less than half of the width of the page when maximized (in Firefox 7). Where are the options to customize the page view, for example removing the facebook widget on the right side and expanding the content?

Page number links for threads should be at both the bottom and the top of the page.

The bug when clicking a page link on the "latest posts" screen still has not been fixed.

The quick reply box is unnecessarily narrow by default.

The color scheme (light blue on purple) is even less legible now that the default font size has been reduced.

Was there any usability testing on this before it was released?

Every page in this thread starts with at least 15 vertical inches, on my monitor anyway, of the following:

Yikes.

There. Their. They're not the same.

 

I hope I die before "your" becomes the official contraction of "you are."

I like the new look, I miss the newest forum posts on the front page, please bring the forums back. I'd rather see that than recipes, since the newest recipes don't change all that much.
