    Front Page - Main Site 4th Oct 18 at 2:50 PM
    Is there something going on with the front page of the main site?

    I see a different version sometimes when I open it then it changes again after I have logged into the forum.

    Not complaining - just asking

    Hi, sorry for the delay replying.

    Well spotted!

    We're testing the new version on a small percentage of site users at the moment, rolling it out gradually until eventually all site users will be able to see it.
    Could you do with a Money Makeover?

    I know that. What I was referring to is connectivity, i.e. the site goes down a lot. But that looks to be resolved now.

    It looks like I'm getting the new home page now. What surprises me is that probably MSE's biggest profit makers, energy comparison and credit comparison via the credit report section have been moved to rather inconspicuous links in a right-hand panel further down the page. Took me a while to find them.

    Got a chance to compare both versions of the main site front page this morning.
    The 'old' page is a lot more cluttered but strangely it is easier to find things on it, it's much easier to read and the sections make a lot more sense.

    The 'new' page is more open with a lot of empty space and has no sense to it with similar subjects not even close to each other, even the weekly poll is on a different page so I tend not to bother with it.

    Just loaded MSE Home page, showed old dense layout, with lot of news, links & articles, which I prefer

    Closed window, loaded MSE Home page, showed new layout, more open & lot of empty useless empty space, lot less links, news, articles, which I don't like.

    The new Home Page is rubbish !

    Don't keep trying to reinvent the wheel !

    I prefer to stay with old Home Page layout.

    "The 'old' page is a lot more cluttered but strangely it is easier to find things on it, it's much easier to read and the sections make a lot more sense."

    Agreed. The new home page is horrible and less user-friendly. Sorry!

    Agree with the above.
    I'm a relatively new user of the site and the old website, although more 'Cluttered' was easier to find exactly what I was looking for. I fond with the new website I have to do a lot of scrolling to get to what I need to.

    Still don't like simplified Home Page.

    Prefer action packed home page where I can see mass of articles that I can choose from.

    Simplfying isn't always best.
