    I would like to suggest being able to tag other members in the forum on posts. There have been a few times where I have been commenting knowing a particular person could help with something and unless they are actively browsing each section the might not come across it. xxx

    I have great issues replying on either my desktop or my laptop. When I'm typing, quite often it doesn't register all my text so it would appear like this: "I hvegrat issus rpyng on ethrmy destor my ltop" It drives me bonkers and I end up having to copy a paste but even then it doesn't like to paste into the box and usually takes a few attempts.

    An app or a much improved mobile site would be my preference though, I usually use my phone but fund it much harder to navigate on my phone.

    I used to belong to a parenting forum and they had all your usual parenting things like Trying to Conceive, Early Pregnancy, Teen Pregnancy, Newborn, Toddler, Pre-School, High School, Step-Parenting etc however they also have entire areas of the forums for other things: News, General Chat, Work, Relationships, Holidays/Travel, Money and Finance.

    They also have different forum parts for different locations and meetups, which might make it easier for b2b's looking for area specific advice?

    I think it encourages people to use the forum more, as it gives a better sense of community as opposed to only talking about weddings and not really wanting to derail from the current topics too much.
    Think this his is an amazing idea. A lot of folk seem to slowly but surely stop visiting the forum in the year or so after their wedding has been, whether to concentrate on he next step be it conceiving/kids, mortgages, moving, etc so I think it would be great as a progressive part of the wedding planning. Although I do understand it's a wedding forum, but even now the chat is not limited to wedding things as we all know, there is loads of nwr posts on here xxx

    Also I think the design/colour needs a total revamp! The blue makes me think of hospital!! Even some little details like shapes or borders or something? Xxx

    just logged on today and the colour is really light blue? I am actually struggling to read it, not very accessible friendly for anyone that has sight problems or colour blindness (I have neither and its hard for me to read) xx

    So glad the text skipping problem isn't just me!
    I'm not keen on the new colour scheme either, Have to tilt at funny angles to see it

    I agree. And also, there is no colour difference to show which threads you have already read/replied in before! Previously the thread title was bold, or a different colour I think, if you had already read it and there was an arrow (I think) to show if you'd replied in this thread before!! Xxx

    I agree - it's difficult to read at the moment and it's only because I'm a regular that I kinda know where everything is.

    Can the theme be looked at again please? xxx

    I'm having major problems with text skipping. Cannot access at all on my tablet and Surface as the keyboard just keeps popping up and down on screen so can't type anything

    have you changed the colour of the front page of the forum again? I am struggling to read it today and I am having to tilt the screen, the lighter green doesn't contrast well at all, really isn't helpful for any of your brides that might have a vision problem, far too light, the text skipping still happens too puts me off using the forum

    Hello,

    I think it would be really good if you had a way to sort by date-When I am looking for budget info and stuff I would much rather look at recent posts than 2010. I don't really understand the order in which threads are displayed so I find something when I search one day on page 2 and then on another day its on page 8 etc etc

    text skipping is back - funnily enough not happening on this reply but my reply on 2015 in planning is one line an it took me a good 5 mins to type that. Its is only this site I am having problems with. and echoing the light colours.

    I know this is old but might help those having trouble. I find Firefox works absolutely fine on desktop, laptop and phone now. It's only Internet Explorer I really have issues with.
