When you logged in to the website and under the message part there was 4 rows of pictures of like
Most Popular,
Uploaded Today etc....

I miss that because the top row of pictures usually was full of upcoming holday pics etc.....I was hoping to come in and be inspired or get ideas on a 4th of July cake quickly............but then again I could just go to the picture gallery and look for the holiday section and it would be the same but the other way was quicker.....

Don't like this set up at all either. I think they just it for the worse and the same cakes keep repeating! Wish they would go back.

I miss it also. icon_cry.gif I liked the other way better.
We have a slower internet, living in the country, so it's not very user friendly for us.

PLEASE go back to the old way !!!

I know what you mean. It is harder to find quality cake inspiration this way. I imagine that this way is likely more encouraging for those whose cakes aren't viewed as often, because they get a few minutes of fame. The attitude promoted on this website is so positive and clean that these changes don't surprise me much. Perhaps in the future there will be a return of the holiday cakes and of the most popular cakes. Those were the most valuable to me for inspiration. In the meantime, kuddos to Jackie, Heath and their team for making this site positive.

I really really really liked the old way - PLEASE bring it back!!

I've also found I spend less time here! I wish they would bring back the old layout.. I loved being able to see the pictures for the upcoming holidays- I always found it fun and inspirational! I also looked at many more pictures then because we got a greater view of popular photos, new photos, most popular from today.. I loved that!

with the newest uploads being in the box I have found that not every picture ever makes it's way into the slide. It rotates on a timed preset amount and then only takes the last pictures up-loaded. if twenty pictures are up-loadded at the sames time then we are missing a whole lot of cake. Some really great cakes infact. My preference is to have the mixed windows also. Seeing the new favorites was inspiring as well as the upcoming holiday stuff.
You really have to go back to the galleries and veiw the last up-loads as pages are added almost every day.

I also HATE change, it's not always for the best. I'm not on CC half of the time I used to be, I guess that could be a good thing I'm getting more things done. Hehehehehehe

If we are taking a vote I would vote for the old way.
The only good thing is that I'm not on as much as I used to be. LOL who am I kidding I'm still on a lot, but I miss seeing the holiday photos and most popular. For me they were real inspirations.

Thanks so much to OP for posting this... I hadn't realized how little time I spend here lately until this thread made me think about it. Last night I actually opened the galleries and went to the new pictures and spent so much time looking through 30 pages of beautiful cakes! Wow... what a pleasure to browse through the galleries again! The old homepage format is certainly missed!

I also really miss the old way of seeing all the photos, favourites.. new photos etc on the opening page of CC.....

I just thought this new format was temporary.......

I don't even go to the main page anymore...I bookmarked the "search for new posts" and that's what I go to now.

I really enjoyed seeing the most popular ones.

I agree, the old way was so much better and I agree that the old way was much more inspriational. This way is boring, to me anyway. The old way there was so much more too see.

I also notice I have been spending a LOT less time on here with the new format.

I think the old format gave more people more exposure. I saved more pix from it. I don't spend as much time here either because of it. Not as much insppiration.

I completely agree. I skip right past the pictures on the home page now. I find the scrolling annoying. I really would like the old format back!

Totally agree! I'm not on Cake Central near as much....harder to find what your looking for. I've found other websites I visit.

PLEASE BRING THE OLD HOME PAGE BACK!!!!!!

I really enjoyed the upcoming holiday pictures row. I need to see ideas to get me going, and there are such talented people out there to inspire me! I do go to the galleries when I'm looking for something in particular, but I miss the spontaneuos ideas from the holiday row.
