I think it’s new.  I thought it was a mistake at first because I’ve been getting those directory type windows instead of the real pages on occasion.  I really like this; hope it hangs around!

Thanks for pointing that out, it does look a lot better.  What a surprise!

Hmmm… That’d be why I’m seeing no shop drop-down, then. Utterly broken here…

Edit: Now, a few hours later, it’s decided it’ll start displaying, so I guess somebody fixed something. wink Mind, can’t say I’m anything like as enthusiastic about it as some folks. It’s huge (which was probably part of the problem earlier). The new DAZ site has made a few things better, but it’s still playing catch-up with the old site as far as plain straight-forward usability is concerned. Sometimes bells and whistles get in the way…

The new drop down does look good,  really helps with targeting search for categories,  I noticed it,  yesterday.  The site keeps getting better and better, even if its been taking a long while to get here.

Yeah, looks cool. But I would prefer if they first concentrate on fixing things - like getting back the feature that told you whether you have already bought an item before. I am tired of checking every item before buying, especially now during the PA sale.

<nod> As I said in another thread about this new dropdown earlier tonight; it’s “pretty”. I couldn’t care less about “pretty”, for the last several months we’ve needed “works”. I wonder when we’ll get it?

Personally I think it is too big for a quick nav menu. I thought it was fine as it was.

make that 3 votes against the newer version.  BUT….

With Fast Grab, New Releases, DO and Shop by Vendor on main page, don’t really need it for the way I shop.  80%+ I am either looking for New stuff or FG material.  So, I can tolerate it.

Make that four. I thought it was broken and I am waiting for them to fix it. It is too big, too much infomation at once, I’ve seen sitemaps easier to read that that. I used to be able to make menus like that and they *were* broken! wink

Let’s make it five against.  The old one was tidy, this version just covers half my browser window with stuff to sort through.  Change is good, if it is an improvement.  This isn’t.

OK, whining over, back to shopping…

That’s true.
With all the things that are wrong with this store right now, this doesn’t get more than a shrug out of me any more :D Not better, but not particularly relevant either.
