Hi

First time logged in here for ages, whats the deal with the new forum layout, its horrible !

I have changed to classic view but when in the wso section all the posts dont display where I can see maybe 10-20 posts on page like they used to be ? The post titles are really big and you have to scroll down page to see all other offers.

Hardly a major world problem but I am puzzled as to why this change was made as must surely be losing many members and wso also get less exposure ?

Any way to get the old classic view throughout the forum like it was about 5 years ago lol

    If you access the WSO section via the Marketplace menu (on the top black toolbar) it displays the threads in Classic View style (as long as you're already in Classic View).

    At least, it does for me.

    It was a decision made by the owners (Freelancer). Not likely to change, unfortunately, in spite of much discussion on the topic.

      Not for me. Have seen posts where it works form some and not for others. I'm always in classic view.

    I love the modern view.

    Just curious - what is it you "love" about the modern view?

    I'm curious as well. I guess I got used to the classic view and really liked that myself too.

    thanks, I cant get it to display classic view and its a strange business decision as more offers are below the fold so from sellers viewpoint its very bad as I dont have patience to scroll through pages.

    Are the viewing figures accurate now ? I see about 500 viewing in wso section, years ago it was probably more like 2-3000 viewing ?

    Kevin -


    If you click on your forum name in the black toolbar - do you see the box at the bottom of the dropdown. I think it displays in gold and should say 'view classic' IF you are in the modern view now. What is showing there for you?
