Go back to the old format

Go back to the old format. This new (whatever you want to call it) stinks. People who are computer stupid have not figured out in any way how to use this. I log in, try, and get beyond frustrated and leave the site! This used to be great place for info and warm uplifting feelings. No more. gramcjk

hi g, sorry to hear you've been having trouble. i know the new format did take some getting used to in terms of formatting and a couple of the other bells and whistles, and i imagine there are many features i don't even use, but at this stage i feel like the basics of posting, browsing and searching content are fairly similar. can you give a more specific example of one or two issues you're experiencing?
(from context i'm getting a sense of the answer to my related question after your january feedback - ie trouble as a 'non computer user' - does *not* mean you are a smartphone user having issues)
take control of your own health
pursue optimal self care at least as actively as a diagnosis
ask for referrals to preventive health care specialists eg dietitians
don't let suboptimal self care muddy any underlying diagnostic picture!

Hi gramcjk,
Have you tried any of the other for styles that are available? These are accessible from the User Control Panel as described in the following post. viewtopic.php?f=1&t=30702 The different styles change the appearance of the forums and you may find one of the other styles easier to use.
