Is forum broken, again?

I'll hazard a guess and say there's been a reply. The thread showed up straight away but nothing underneath :(

Cleared cached images and files and just sent the replies. Not sure it's a long term fix as won't know until I post this.

Why is this happening again? Can we expect an improved interface perhaps?

I am now getting dodgy pop-ups for the first time ever ...



... given that I have pop-ups turned off in my browser (and I don't get them from any other website), I am well p####d off that What Hi-fi? software is circumventing this. (Upset that Firefox is allowing it too!)

Getting that too, and in both Chrome and Opera so it's not just Firefox...

Me to, bloody annoying aren't they. 'Tis about time WHFSAV really got round to having this website re-designed.

One would think that with so many forum templates available it's neither expensive nor difficult to improve what we have here. There's many amateur run forums that are more functional and better layer out than this.

With the importance of social media it's incredibly surprising that social aspect of Whathifi.com is so neglected. It's also not surprising why other hifi forums are so busy in comparison. You'd think that Haymarket would recognise the importance of this side of their business and that clicks equal advertising leading to potentially more magazines sold.

+1. We had this debate last time around and this is what we got!
