New Interface?

anony
Am I the only person that hates the AP's new interface? I feel like I'm reading a website that is half loaded. That's actually what I thought for 2 days before I realized that this is just the new interface. The ads in the middle of the articles are so egregiously obtrusive. This is my favorite site for news, but I could see my readership going down significantly if this interface remains.

At the very least, take the ads out of the middle of articles. They break up sentences for god's sake!

Am I crazy or do other people feel the same?

No, you're correct. The new design is fucking hideous.

It's because of the tablet/smartphone invasion. Call it web 3.0 if you want. Gigantic fonts, gigantic buttons, and text/graphics literally just slopped all over the page with no attention paid to alignment, padding symmetry, you name it. As if 6 year olds had become the world's only webmasters. Every site these days seems to be doing it. Not sure why. Maybe there's some demographic metric that says if a web design looks repulsive, dumb people (ad clickers) were flock to it in greater numbers?

hahaha you guys are right. I have my own website and the mobile people just complain about it. I dont go on mobile much so I only care a certain amount about the mobile experience.  Im new here and never saw the old interface. Dont worry I will still read your articles. At least I never accidentally clicked on the ads. I like how this site has a forum at all though.

also if your site is old, overpriced, or name brand dumb people will flock to it. All the major corporate websites are going unnavigable. I think the mobile people like fewer buttons which for a mobile device is simplifying and for a laptop device it just means less choices, harder navigation, and more waiting for irrelevant pages to load.

It is terrible, I might stop coming here. Where did all the links from the side go?  That was 80% of the reason I came here and zero links? There are too many other good sites to spend my time at....goodbye

o really.  What kind of links was it? They still have articles, ads, some links under the contributors tab, and a forum. I wish the forum was more active actually. I seem to be capable of hogging it all to myself. I was thinking about linking my site to activist post if activist post wanted to link back. Guess it could use some links it might draw them some traffic.

Not merely hideous, but unusable. Articles often don't even show up for me. I keep getting the short blurb, and that's all.

It loads very slow as well.

I hate to be a pisser, but the new UI is a complete fail.

I hope it gets reverted to the old one until someone can get a working UI done.

EDIT:
I had a peek in the code quickly... holy crap... it's a disaster and a half. And I'm only getting part of it as the rest won't load. Looking at that, I'd scrap it and start over from scratch.

Thanks for the notes on the site. The new design isn't permanent by any means. It's actually a testing service we hired to experiment with different layouts. They'll be cycling though many over the next few weeks, probably 150+ different designs in all. By the end the hope is we know which one users like best.

If you'd like to view the original version of the site it's still active, just click on this link and you should see it permanently going forward.

I see there's another new one being tested. I tried it in another browser, and after a half hour, it still hadn't loaded completely. It did look better than the other one though. Maybe the testing software is mucking things up?

todays lay out is good for those who like to watch videos but it took me a minute to catch on to the forum button.
