I see a list...

of apparently all the ivillage sites now when I go to any of the Boards I visit.  At first I thought there was a problem...'til I thought to scroll down a ways.  And after any viewing, I have to again scroll down.  Is this the new look of the front page of each Board....a mile-long list down the left-hand side that we have to scroll past to get to the meat of the Board?

Thanks, Karla

This is the first Board I have visited today, and the list is gone.

I was seeing it on Wednesday night on some (but not all) of the boards I visited. Today the list is gone, but sometimes the iVillage banner across the top appears different and doesn't have the section that says "Log In" or "Hi, elc11".

When I see weird formatting its usually late at night, making me think that they work on the board glitches in the hours that are overnight for EST.

Regarding the appearance of the banner, I noticed that if I run the cursor near the small "red ball" that is on the right of the banner, I can select Log Out or My Profile or Account Settings. (on the left I see an envelope with a little heart but if I scroll over it, it disapperars or I get the "search and discover" from the magnifying glass icon in the middle. Is the envelope going to be a link to PM or email?) I see that format when I'm on main pages in the boards. When I am in the Reply mode I see the old banner. If I go to the main page for the site the banner  looks different still.

Shouldn't the new banner indicate the name of the user that is logged in?

And, I don't want to whine but seriously, shouldn't fixing the board glitches be a higher priority than freshening up the appearance of the banner??? No matter how cute the packaging looks, if the site doesn't work properly many visitors won't want to use it.

Hi,

They are currently in the process of updating the headers and footers of the boards to match the rest of the site updates. The end image in the banner should be either an avatar (if you're logged in) or a silhouette of a head. Hovering over that will give you your log in options.

Here is what mine looks like when I'm logged in fully, along with when I'm hovering over the avatar — my screen shot is split in two, to fit, the image should be one long banner:


HTH & TGIF! :)
