So, I've been in and out throughout the evening and tried to remain objective. The overall look of the site and the pages, including the home page, in addition to having to hunt things down. The look of the prior web page was very impressive and inviting. When I was first referred to Cake Central, I was wowed. The home page reflected the diversity of the content and experience of it's members.
The new look is sterile, not inviting at all. If my first visit was today, I would not even give it a second look. The large advertisements add to the turn off. Too much emphasis on sponsorship and, well, not much else. I liked pulling up the site and seeing the name and wedge of cake. It was a nice touch.
In addition to the bugs with drop down menus and missing pics (I was sure I had r 4 pgs in my gallery) I hope the fine tuning that is done includes bringing back some of the class, style, and pizazz this site had that made people want to be a member here rather than other sites. Luv YA!!
