Yes, thanks. I had the same problem.
I guess the powers that be don't like it.
I feel compelled to comment here. I like that the search function actually works. First time EVER you can search for G&L on this board.
That said, I can't stand the new PM function. It is just plain awful. Make a single mistake and you loose everything you've typed -thats just retarded. Overall I'm not a fan of the new software. I'm getting old but I was fluent with the internet back when the only "forums" were Usenet based so i'm not a technophobe . The constant move towards (anti-social) social media with everything is just plain disheartening. I want to talk to musicians here. I don't want to share bulls*t on Tweeter or Facefook.
+1 LOVE the new search function...works great.
-1 HATE that you have to click twice to "Mark Forums Read", and 3 clicks when on mobile.
Mark Forums Read should work from the current Forum and down. Mark ALL Forums read should only be available from the top-level home page. The way it's currently setup is cumbersome and different than virtually every other forum I'm a member of.
Just my thoughts...
The 'logged in' view of http://www.thegearpage.net/board/index.php needs the right sidebar better adapted to desktops/laptops with smaller screens. It appears to be set to a %, and its compresses the main content (forum listings) to the point where the vertical stretching is horrible - the descriptions of each forum really screw up the layout. Its not optimized for normal/non-16x9 laptop resolutions IMO. Either the sidebar needs to be a smaller %, or an @media query used below a certain width to do away with the descriptions. JMHO.
how do you start a thread, post, conversation, I just want to sell an item , so confused
I can't find where to start a thread now either.....it was there the other day
Is that why my iPad Pro screen is all wonky? I realize it’s bigger but now everything is all squished to the sides and the menu is on the right but a lot of times 1/3 of the screen is just white. It’s making my head hurt.

I have no complaints but do have a wish list item. I would love to be able to ignore threads from the new posts thread list. I realized a while back there are several threads with 1000's of replies I don't participate in as well as newer threads I have no desire to participate in. I've probably ignored 20-30 threads so far it's just a pain to open it just to ignore it. FWP I know
I think this just started happening to me: the Trending Topics are showing up now also in individual open threads, in addition to the main page with all of the forums showing. How do I get it to stop?
Having the same problem.
On desktop the sidebar is just awful, it provides no relevant information for me, all it causes is more scrolling and images showing up smaller because I don't want to run my browser in fullscreen. Please just make it possible to hide.
I haven't checked it on my 12.9" iPad Pro yet but I bet it makes the website unreadable because it does not scale well. The sidebar on desktop/laptop/large tablets will take too much space and make the forum content hard to read.
Go to bottom left of the page and choose TGP test style and it’s back to normal.
I did not know that! I scrolled to the bottom of the page and sure enough, there's a style selector. I opted for Tablet here on my laptop, and it removed the sidebar! Yay. Thank you.
