Hi everyone,

here we have some good news
UG team is going to update Forum!


What is it all about?
  • bigger avatars 100x100
  • better "reply" option
    no more redirection to use advanced settings, all in one window
  • new parameters (check out new width)
  • faster
    AND
  • there will be Mobile Version soon!

That is just a few words about UG New Forum. To make it comfortable, we need your feedback as we're still working to improve it.

The best part is that you can make it better!
Here is a link to a new UG forum -- > https://forum.ultimate-guitar.com/forum/

Try it, post your feedback here (what to fix/improve) and we will change it.

Also was this the cause of the forum going completely tits up earlier?


EDIT: It's ok, but I want UG black That classic theme is horrific

2 comments from initial look.

Will there be alternative colour schemes? I know a lot of people like UG Black and I don't see an option to switch.

I don't see a search bar, is that gone or to be added?
#5
Also with a new forum isnt it about time you got new moderators?

edit: wew I posted this on the new forum and it took me back to the old one
#7
Oh, they tied the search bar in to the main one you would use to search for tabs, reviews etc.

sam b, we will have dark version as well - will be ready today-tomorrow.
We worked with current version as well, so probably something happened, but we fixed it =]

New forum will be released as soon as we have good reviews here ( = pass this open testing) (hope to release it till the end of this week)
#9
It's OK if you were transfered from new forum to current one. It just bc new one is not default at this moment.
#10
I'm not sure I like how wide it is to be honest, but I imagine I'll get used to it. Having everything available in the quick-reply box is good though

Sweet Until I see it in the black version I can't really compare as I havent used classic since.. well as long as I can remember. Nothing really seems that much different though on first impression apart from the whole thing being wider.

's good

the formatting is a bit too wide

like this current one has the nice black borders either side of the screen to frame the page

the new one doesn't, makes it look like a mobile site i'd look into that if you could

It's probably to make the transition to mobile site easier but I agree with you.

Also I don't get how people can use UG Black. Even just looking at this page with the black borders makes it jarring to switch to a site with a white background. I only imagine Black would make that worse.

I like the reply format for sure, really would like to see the UG Black version of it tho. The wider formatting is nice too.

if some people want wide formatting and some people don't can we please have the option to change

there's so much dead space on my screen with the wide formatting

Can we add an option that's only available to me and that lets me change random posts to bear related posts whenever I feel like it?

I promise I'll be responsible with it...

I had a comment but it was more about aesthetic than functionality. Quotes look really odd to me. Maybe I'll get accustomed to it with time.
#36
Wow... I think this is the first major forum overhaul since the old bee colors almost 15 years ago.

Format looks nice

Hey that's cool. I'll be honest, I figured UG stopped caring about its forums and was on its last leg so thanks for the update.

So I guess it's safe to assume the freak out last night was due to testing this out or something?

Quote by Shura_FYI
And yes, all requests about smiles are redirected to developers (about masquirina's dancing fruits first of all =) )
Thank you God. :')

You can search through the older threads in sub forums by about 10 years, this is very useful in something like Tabs and Chords where we can track down older collabs/versions of songs.

SO DONT GET RID OF THIS PLS.
