    Default Fragranticas new format website! UGH!

    Guess many people here are members of fragrantica too? Logged in to it yesterday and WOAH!!!! What a mess! Looks like it was designed in the early 90s.
    Difficult to use and generally sloppy.
    Any thoughts anyone?

    Its been awful for months. They redesigned it and a thread was up on here about it. Now seemed to have gone further done the rabbit hole and made it even worse.

    I had a casual wander over the other day and it asked me to sign in which it never does. Lucky my details came up and I just clicked, otherwise I have no idea what password I used.

    I could still access the reviews on the same old format when I ran a search. Perhaps the change applies only to the homepage?

    Evidently its been redesigned for phones. The new layout only makes sense in portrait mode. Regrettably the content is still the same.

    It's never been user-friendly or easy to navigate, but the new home page is indeed a mess. Internally, nothing seems to have changed. Fragrantica has some features that I like, but overall it's as counterintuitive as ever.

    I’m just there to use whatever profile picture I want and for the instant link that appears to a fragrance when you mention it.

    The thing I hate most about Fragrantica is that they must intentionally break copy/paste for some reason. It's absolutely infuriating and pointless.

    Adaptation to smartphone usage has absolutely destroyed all the creativity that had gone into 20 years of website design.
