what have they done to this lovely site .......its horrid .. :-(


Marion Report 1 Aug 2012 14:50

Definately not as easy to read as its been! Background is glaring , feels uncomfortable after a while and has lost all character.


PiersFromKent Report 1 Aug 2012 14:43

Too bright for me too ;-)

Gwyn at the very top near the purple GR logo , you'll se 'Home' then 'Family Tree' in on and should say 'my tree'...though mine's not working when I get to it.

I would need the arms of a chimpanzee to type whilst on zoom at 125%



Mersey Report 1 Aug 2012 14:36

Your just a grumpy Merlin lol :-D :-D


Frederick Report 1 Aug 2012 14:33

Try this, it worked for me, ( members with laptops ) increased zoom level from 100% to 125% and open lid further back, makes screen a shade darker.

Where do I look at my tree please?
Can someone please talk me through?
I rarely look at the tree lay-out as I have an off line record, but would like to see how it looks now.
Clicking on various tabs I fail to see where it's gone :-(



Cynthia Report 1 Aug 2012 14:30

Bob, if you click on the numbered stars in your tree, it shows you how many record/tree matches there are for that person.

I have emoticons when I use Google Chrome but not when I use IE. Maybe I need to do something technical???


Merlin Report 1 Aug 2012 14:26

Ah, Mersey ,So you,ve seen the Light?:o))> No smiley face ,Emoticons gone.:o((>


MaccollFan1 Report 1 Aug 2012 14:24

OK just looked at my tree again...

AAARGH! I thought the last 'new tree' was hideous, but this is summink else! :-S

BTW, if there's a space for photos in the tree boxes, why haven't they copied our photos into them? Why just use male and female cliparts?


Mersey Report 1 Aug 2012 14:21

I sort of like it :-D :-D :-D


ButtercupFields Report 1 Aug 2012 14:17

I am just outraged that my Great Grandmother looks the same age as I do :-D


Bobtanian Report 1 Aug 2012 14:17

what do the numbers in the stars represent?

cant be the order in which the tree was built? can it?


Merlin Report 1 Aug 2012 14:15

So do I Sue, and its giving me a headache,which I very rarely have, I have sent them a suggestion, hope they might take note and Act on It.**M*.


supercrutch Report 1 Aug 2012 14:10

Well, none of us should be expected to change our screen appearance in order to actually read the content of a site we pay for.

I wear tinted specs and even my eyes are fighting to focus whilst typing this :-(

Merlin Report 1 Aug 2012 14:08
