Feedback on our new website design please

This time last week we unveiled a fresh Property118 website design and new functionality to improve Navigation, searching and the general user experience.

One of the new features we have added is a ‘hover-over’ function which appears when your mouse cursor is placed over a members name or Avatar. The date of when the member joined Property118 and how many comments they have posted to date is then displayed. We think this will be particularly useful to established members who like to report inappropriate comments. Sadly, some people join forums and post antagonistic comments to wind people up. For some reason they get a kick out of it! Where such comments are reported a view is then taken by moderators on whether to remove the offending comment, and in extreme cases to expel the member and block their IP address so that they are unable to create a membership profile using an different name and email account.

Inevitably there were a few initial ‘bug-fixes’ to deal with when we first launched the new website and we are extremely grateful to members who took the time and effort to point these out to us. Hopefully, these have now all been resolved. We hope you will agree that the text font is now much easier to read for example, and to make bigger for those with less than 20:20 vision. Other fixes were to ensure that comment links pointed directly to the associated comment as opposed to the article and that login issues were resolved. We are still working on some image cropping issues.

There may still be things you spot which are slightly annoying or could be improved upon further, hence we would very much like you to tell us what these are.

Please leave comments below and rest assured that we take all user feedback very seriously and will do whatever we can to continue to improve your user experience.

Daily Newsletters were paused whilst we were ‘bug-fixing’ but will now resume for those who were previously receiving them and for all new members.

Thanks in advance for your help.

Neil Patterson – Managing Director of Property118 Limited

Please bear with us. We are improving things everyday from feedback where practical and the comments notification going down is now fixed.
Unfortunately it went down for a little while as other improvements being made affected it accidentally.
Thank you so much for all your feedback 🙂

I have just tested "make text bigger" on the latest version of Firefox and it is working in there.
Please can I ask what Browser you are using and what version eg is it the latest?

The "make text bigger" works in Chrome but there is no way to make it smaller again.

Just click on to any other page and it reverts back to standard size again 🙂

Reply to the comment left by Neil Patterson at 02/08/2017 - 14:53Doesn't work on FF 52 or Opera (latest for the OS). Usually use Opera as the View all Sections menu covers the entire screen in FF (probably because it thinks I'm on a mobile device because of low-ish screen res) that doesn't happen in Opera probably because no one has bothered to sniff Opera and adjust things for it.

Hi Kathy,
The view all section (eg our Nav bar) does cover the full screen while you are clicked into it and until you exit out

Hope you don't mind me asking but why do you use those browsers as opposed to the more popular ones such as Chrome, Firefox, Safari etc.?

Looks like it's meant for phones - too much domination by pictures adn large text, content is all but invisible - right hand related articles has gone.
Sorry preferred the old one.

I have approx 50% of white page and a rather narrow strip with comments almost in the middle.
Have not tried the page on smartphone yet.
