I really don't like the new way that CC is showing cake photos on the home page. Is it going to stay like this?

I liked the old way a lot better where you could see (without it moving) cake photos featuring the current holiday, popular cake photos (gave me inspiration), and the new photos.

I don't like the new way at all.

there are quite a few threads about the new way to show pictures ... but I agree, I don't care for it much myself .. they are still doing improvements though .. let's give them time ...

I have to agree, you never go wrong, with the old saying, "don't fix what ain't broken" I liked the old way much better.

maybe they will change it back.... it was really neat to see what others are looking at ... it helps to follow the trends.

I liked the old way better too, it was fun to see all the favorites of the day and the all time favorites and also holiday photos. I found lots of good ideas on the original set up.

I have to agree.....the upclose picture at the top really doesn't show much and its sort of bothersome to have to click on ea. and everyone to see a full view. I really enjoyed the old homepage. icon_sad.gif I realize they want to update too and I'm sure there's a happy medium for a change.

I agree, mostly because half the time i'm on my I phone, and it takes FOR FREAKING EVER for those to load on that tiny screen and I can't see them anyway! It just takes forever to log on when i'm mobile.

Totally agree, I really dislike this new format! You can't see the details in those pics, and you can only see about 7 pics a time. It's kind of a pain to have to look in another place for pics, its annoying. Specially when you are at work trying to squeeze in some CC time! thumbs_up.gif

I really don't like it right now either. I understand they're still making changes but I REALLLLLYYY hope they go back to the old way of showing photos. I don't think they should have changed a thing. Actually, the ONLY change I do like is being able to log in on the home page.

I think it was much more inspirational for me when there were more photos. I find I don't come on CC as much now than before the changes. Yes I know, I can just look at the galleries, as stated in other threads, but its just not the same!! I'm so disappointed!!!!!!!!!!!

thumbsdown.gif Go start your own website and purchase the servers necessary to store all of the photos and forums then!

Constructive criticism is acceptable....your comment is not. icon_smile.gif

I agree the old way was much better!

I really like the additional photo feature! I'm not too fond of the home page though. I'm dying to know what it will all be like when the updates are complete!

I think you all need to read Heath's post in this forum. We should all try to be more patient and thankful.

even though i miss the old way that the home page was set up, i do like the concept of the slideshow. maybe they can mix the best parts of the old with the new. i also like that we can now add additonal pics of our cakes. hopefully it will just keep getting better!

Thanks you so much KathysCC for posting that!! I'm really glad I got to read what Heath wrote, it gave me a whole different outlook on the changes.

I guess when you become so used to things being one way, it can be hard to except change icon_lol.gif

ok, I agree it isn't constructive to say 'it sucks'. I also don't think that being uncomfortable with the change is ungrateful. I read Heath's post, and I understand that things are not done yet and it takes a lot of work to support this vast amount of sweet information. I do feel that I and others should be allowed to miss the familiar view of the site we have known and loved for years without being scolded for it.
