Although the forum is now loading somewhat faster on my phone, I'm still having the issue of each page double-loading - loading completely, then reloading for no apparent reason. And the first time it loads, it takes me to the first unread post in the thread, but when it reloads, it always takes me back to the top of the page. Super frustrating, especially since I mostly browse the forum from my phone while nursing! And I'm not saying that my personal (stupid) smart phone isn't playing a part in this - just that it didn't happen with the old format, and it is happening with the new format.

Ahhh, there is help on the way....a mobile version is coming *very* soon.  We will keep you posted and we will let tech know that pages are doing this.

Adina, that helps, but I dont think that new people who join MDC are going to be looking for "Groups" and then finding their DDC. When I go to a new site, I go the "Pregnancy" section. But, it doesnt really matter to me, I just thought it was something admins might want to think about for newbies.

What's with the new ads all of a sudden?  At first my screen was fine, but starting today there are ad columns on both sides of the threads I read.  The thread is now a column, and the ads are literally taking up over half of my screen. :(  It makes the page look very "busy".

Mine too, and in settings I selected "ad-free experience"

Thanks, I just fixed it, I hope.  I was looking for "settings" but found a tab called "preferences" underneath the thread title.  I selected "view forums full width".  Now I only see a small column of ads on the right.  It no longer looks like a page full of ads.

We have an ad skin running on the site which is a site-wide ad run and not part of the usual ad positions that are excluded in the ad free version. I see it on a few landing pages but not on thread pages at all. Are you still seeing it Adaline'sMama?

Im only seeing it when I go to my subscriptions or to the homepage. It's not on the thread pages at all.

Omg! Mobile platform!?!

I can't tell you how much more I would use this site if I could read it on my first gen iPad and or iPhone I have about a 30 sec load for an MDC page on my iPad. It shows my dedication to MDC that I just didn't completely drop out. But it sure cut down my visits and participation.

Hooray!

We (Cynthia and I) just got in for testing on the mobile version. It's sexy! Can't wait for everyone to see it.

while the goal is that the new mobile responsive coding might make it no longer needed, you can always use a iOS app like Tapatalk to see forums, i use it for 4 different ones and love how fast it lets me check up on everything i have my feet in all at one place

Hi! I posted over on page 1 about the load time. This did not happen with the old format. Just wondering if I can fix it at all? It's kind of irritating and takes away from my slovenly couch potato down time :)

Tell them they got to upgrade their image of us to match!!!

Will pass that onto Huddler, thanks.

We're concerned about this too and are talking about ways to make the Due Date Clubs more visible in the new design (and were before that). Did you notice them in the drop down under Pregnancy?. Thanks for the suggestion. We're working on it.

post #35 of 42

I noticed recently that the due date clubs are under pregnancy, which makes sense. :) 

 

But what about the vaccine boards and circumcision boards?  I had a hard time finding them, and for a while I only found them through old posts of mine.  Then I discovered them under "community" on the right.  But wouldn't it make sense to put them under the health tab, or something like that?  If I was just browsing this board for the first time, I might not realize there are vaccination and circumcision forums. 

 

And why aren't the off topic forums more visible, like Talk Among Ourselves?

 

Just wondering...

Actually, the only due date clubs listed under pregnancy are the ones for March and April of 2012. The rest of the DDC's are listed under Community and then Groups. 

post #37 of 42

All of the Due Date Clubs that used to be under Pregnancy (except for March and April 2012) have been archived. Those remaining two will be archived soon. All Due Date Clubs are now opened under Groups at the request of members and can stay open as DDCs after the births as well for everyone to connect as their babes grow. :)

I'm sorry you're experiencing slow loading. It may be intermittent or some incompatibility. I'm not seeing slow loading on my browser so i can't say what is causing it. If you'd like us to check into load times that might affect your specific operating system and browser click on the Support link at the bottom of any page and then fill in the Feedback Form. That will log your system info. Just give examples of pages that you find sow loading when you fill in the form.

I like that the new DDC's are groups, but is there any way to separate them from the other groups? Since we are archiving the last two old school ddc's soon, cant we just call them DDC's and put them under pregnancy. A girlfriend of mine who is due in May 2013 came to MDC and had a hard time finding her DDC. She finally found it by google searching "mothering may 2013" but it seems like it would be SO much easier if it was just listed under pregnancy. 

post #40 of 42

Unfortunately we cannot move Groups to a forum. I might be able to set up a forum in Pregnancy that redirects to the DDC list page showing all and only the DDCs. Do you think that would be helpful?

 

I placed it. Take a look and see what you think. :)
