Yes, if anyone is experiencing problems please clear your browser cache first to see if that corrects the issue and if it doesn't then post back here with a screenshot (Ctrl+ Prnt Scrn - then paste to something like MS Paint if you don't have other graphics software). Also want to know your browser/version, screen resolution and operating system/version. Issues appear differently on various combos of browser, OS and screen resolution.

Right now major issues we're aware of include:

1) the full-size view of the HST Map is not working right
2) pagination (i.e. the page numbers for multi-page threads, etc.) needs work
3) PM post window is covering up the emoticons, links to photos and videos are acting funny.

If any other issues please post here asap.

Just posted this message, and the spacing between the words are showing up to large in the psot
but fine in the preview and the PS which was writen a few moments later is showing up fine.
Ths smiles are also showing up very unclear when trying to re-edit the post, can barely make them out.

I don't give out specific route information, my belief is that it takes away from the whole adventure spirit of a trip, if you need every inch planned out, you'll have to get that from someone else.

This is very nit-picky with all the other stuff you have to do..

The Login/Register section has the old elements, but just "vertical" now. This used to be one line. The "|" was a demarcation line.

very nit-picky so not high priority.

Personally, I'd like it to be one line again, but as Chrome fills in my info, I'm ok if its not.

PS: site has seemed "slower" response wise today. Not sure why.

The site seems much slower today for me also.

I'm not really excited about the amount of white space ("wasted" screen real estate) in the new layout. On my Windows 7 Laptop, which admittedly has limited vertical resolution, I need to scroll down to see anything of value. It's a bit frustrating to have to scroll down past a sparsely populated page to get to the list of topics. I would much prefer that the menu and navigation stuff be condensed down into a much more compact layout that would let me see more without having to scroll down. I'm currently running IE 11.0 and my screen resolution is 1366x768. Here's a picture to illustrate (almost all of the topics are off the bottom of the page and out of view)

Full size map should be semi-functional again. Sorry about that...please let us know if you experience any more problems.

Experiencing very slow upload times, about 8 to 10 sec between pages. Mac OSX 10.7.5, cache flushed, Firefox, and 1920x1080 resolution.

PS It took 52 sec from clicking on edit to get to this page again to write this up.

Like Russ and Mav, I'm experiencing much slower response times to load a page.
