There was an site software upgrade

Recommended Posts

  • Administrators

Tuesday afternoon (Eastern time) I upgraded the software that runs the site. There were a bunch of things that broke when I did the upgrade, but I think things are working again. Please report any problems that started Tuesday afternoon or later in this thread. Don't report any problems that existed before Tuesday.

On IE it is very difficult to do anything, writing is black on grey background so can’t read anything unless I highlight it.  Link to my profile doesn’t work. I am using my iPad at the moment so I can send this reply.

Not sure if it's just me or other people also have the notification bell covered by the X button in the top menu bar. It's on chrome on my phone (android)

On Chrome on my iPhone the Notifications bell is available at the bottom of the screen without needing to open the right-hand more-options slider. Does your Android system give you an option for a bottom nav bar? Mine looks like this:

Less than 1% of people visiting my sites use Internet Explorer. That, and the fact that it's obsolete, mean it's not a supported browser.

Internet Explorer has long been notorious among web designers for not supporting aspects of developing code that were clearly the trend for the future. If you’re a diehard IE user, you should at least consider upgrading to Edge, Microsoft’s newer browser, and seeing if it performs better for you.

The red tags on a grey background aren’t easily readable 

Also, as an accessibility issue, for users with certain types of colorblindness, red colors appear as greys and such tags may be indistinct or invisible.

I’m not colourblind, but the tags are simply impossible to read and the “follow topic” and “hide” options below this dialog are dark grey on a black background, making them hard to read too. 
 

I know grey, black and red are the site style, but some contrast options might be useful..

There notifications section has changed, for some things, that is when you hit the button that looks like the earth..it is now 2/3 of the screen with 1/3 of the screen taken up by other information but only at the top, on the rest 1/3 of the screen is blank. Not sure if this was deliberate? I don’t like this format as you have too scroll a lot more to read anything, which is no fun as you read and are excited.....

I’m using an iPad

Yup works the same on my phone the same way. I did just want to point it out in case others don't have the same option available to them.
