If you are in desktop skin, click LAST POST.

You cannot currently go to last post on mobile; you must click into the thread and then go to the last page.

The last post function is currently under fix by the tech team, at the moment on desktop you can only go to the post via opening the thread and clicking the "first unread" button.

Thanks to both of you. By the way it is a bit unusual the new lay-out but it is okish

The new layout looks a lot better on my phone but it really needs some work for the desk-top version - a change of font might help it look a bit better - it 's very much "in your face" on a big screen

if you want feedback, then it's a thumbs down from me.

fwiw, I will add my name to the long list of people who dislike this feature and I've taken the CP option. I think all the bases have been covered by others, with whom I concur, so nothing else to add.

Are you unable to go to your profile and disable it?

Probably just frustrated.

I envisage it is a deliberate step, step zero of many, that will lead to shutdown of PPRuNe servers and migration under FlyerTalk. Cost control, I get it - you are a business. (*)

Chapter 1: actively degrade the user experience, in order to create "it's an improvement to shut this and move you elsewhere" environment.

That's how bad it is, the impression it has left. Maybe I did not mention, turning the AdBlock back on..

(*) In which case, BTW, the tone of the reply is not appropriate.

Not everybody wants to be logged in all the time.

I used to check out the forum several times a day, just looking through the initial page to see if anything new was on and log-in if I wanted to reply to a post.

Now I just check twice a day as is a pain.

On a positive note, once you log in and change back to "pprune classic" on one device, it will change back on every other device as soon as you log in.

I'd guess it's a Corporate decision that is being rolled out on all the BB's they run - no doubt a new whiz-kid in IT.

The Mods regularly indicate they have little control over the tools they are given

You can turn it off in your user control panel under edit options.

IBobi - a serious and respectful question

Do any of the users like the new interface?

Based on data, lots of members are using it to find trending threads, yes.

People using the trend page are not necessarily happy with it. They will have their own reasons for not logging into the site and therefore would have no other alternative than to go via the trending page.

Truly dreadful and idiotic.

Aha... so THIS is why I can't see any forum descriptions as a new user! As a new user, my account defaulted to the trending topics homepage. I kept trying to access the private forums, but since there's no way for me to see the forum description saying 'please submit your staff #' etc., I just got a totally generic 'access denied' error message.

Of course when I posted about this, here, in the 'problems or queries' board, lovely veteran members gave me a warm welcome by just assuming I couldn't read... A review of what onboarding looks like for new users wouldn't do any harm.
