The same problem at my board (and as I'm typing this, I see that's it is changed at this board also).

Don't know if it is a mistake? Hope so, because I liked the 'old' one much better.

I just read it, thank you very much.

A question: all the smileys are minimized now, so we can't see which smiley is what. Can that be changed?

We use the 'medium' smileys at our board, not the small ones.

I also noticed that, but it was only resized on the editor, not on the actual posts(I just tested).

According to our main administrator, the old editor had a lot of failures/bugs, so it was decided that a new editor would take in place.

Thank you for your reply. I know the size is normal when posted, but we can't see what smiley to use/add because that is not clearly visible.
We use a lot of smileys, because it is a creative board.

Is it possible to take my question to consideration for the technical team, so they can be clearly visible again?

Thank you very much,

Caroline

Im getting a lot of complaints over the new tool bar on our forum.

It was a bit of a shock to find it had changed.

there are two main critism, one is its way too bright and not as clear. The other main issue is loss of the emoticons on the side.

Hello,

By not visible, do you mean not really displayed, or the smilie was displayed too small that it was hard to see?

There are no smiley options on the left side of the reply window. The window with smileys that was there is just gone now. There's only this tiny icon and the smileys in it are minimized, so they are very difficult to see. Also, the editor doesn't even show up for mobile users, so they can't see smileys or edit text at all.

The new system seems to make what were simple things rather complicated; is it possible to have an option?

For now, we don't have an option to revert it back to the default editor.

However, I passed all the concerned issues(such as the smilie issue) to our main admin, we have to wait now.

The folks on my board also prefer having the smileys down the side & easier to see; it also allowed us to insert multiple smileys more quickly and easily. We are another creative board. The other thing that we liked was being able to see the previous posts in a thread while replying; they were previously displayed under the reply box and now they are not. Personally, I prefer the old layout as a whole.

The general consensus on my forum, now that I have had input from most members, is that we don't like the new editor. Everyone is having issues posting from their mobile devices (and we all post from our mobile devices daily) and the preference for computer-based posting is the old editor as well.

I find it disturbing that a BETA editor was launched site-wide as this is not standard industry practice. This editor should not have been launched until it was past the beta stage and had been more thoroughly tested.

Oh dear its awful, you need a pair of very strong glasses to see the emotes, they are blurred as well so you need to scroll your mouse over them all before you find the one you want. Worse if you look at it on a tablet. I wonder whoever tested this could not see how horrible it is. All of my members are complaining.Oh my god
