New site layout?! Answered

Well, i got to work this morning, and went on to check ibles, and i get hit with a paper wallet, i just checked it, and ive found a new layout, and a 'customise' feature! Also, i am able to create a new topic inside of safari instead of having to use firefox! What does everyone think to it? Personally i love the customize feature, it lets me put in direct links to where i want to go. But i must say i miss the drop down box feature, especially on the 'submit' link And i preffered the old location of the links (in the orange band) - I never use the 'categories' It does seem to look a bit squashed up top, (as a graphic designer its a bit unpleasing) But overall, i like the new style!

Duly noted... It's messing with my head a bit, I liked those drop downs, they were easy to deal with... I customized my links so I can go directly to recent and have the usual stuff in there like comments etc.

Yes, thats what Ive done, the recent link being the best. Ive also got just the link straight to the forums, wish it would go to view all auto though. I wonder if they will add the drop down boxes back, i guess i wont use them as much with the customize link. Wait, ive got it, they should give us 1 customizable drop down box, then we could put what we wanted in that?

I didn't add the forum one since community does the same thing... I don't think it's finished yet as the links are still black and stuff, it seems like an odd thing considering the rest of the menus are white...

It's coming on 4am there, granted I was working on stuff until 5.30am last night... Maybe they're planning to become nocturnal...

The customize feature was definitely needed when they took away the drop downs.

I too kind of miss the drop down feature, but can live with the current status quo; except I know I will have difficulties navigating from my work computer if only because the screen is a small 15" screen. Before, I could sign on from the sign on / sign up" drop down box. Now I will need to move the screen over to get to the option up top. Still, not a big deal really (especially since MOST people don't have such a small screen anymore :-)

Don't like it. Could they bring back the drop down menus and change 'you' back to our usernames? The You just looks too short.

Wow, one of the best features yet! They now have the library of your images searchable by the instructable you uploaded the image too!

Yeah, I miss the drop down menu too, but I really like the new layout!

The location of the customized links is abit squashed in to the corner, like you I would prefer having them back on the orange bar for easier access, but the idea behind it is good.

It scared the crap out of me, I haven't even had my coffee yet and I open firefox and get greeted with "Start your first instructable", I was "but where are the one's I've already done",maybe it will inspire me to finally download the pdf's of them all. I'll reevaluate my stance, after coffee.
