    Default The Times - how not to introduce a new look and feel

    It ain't ready yet.

    Search function - no opportunity to refine the results, or even sort by date.
    Some sections on the website are only accessible via the e-paper
    Not all sections from previous days can be accessed.

    And when you read the FAQs concerning these issues "This feature is not yet available but we are looking to introduce it soon."

    But hey - it's all available equally on the mobile app as via the browser.
    Hmm. I'm beginning to suspect that you need to find all the packing the computer came in...

    Bloody Hipsters taking over the Times.
    I was miserable and depressed, but CUK turned it all around. Now I'm depressed and miserable.

    What was a reasonable site - easy to navigate, find what you needed, nicely laid out etc. - which I could use it as I saw fit, has become restrictive and prescriptive.

    "The Times and its sister paper The Sunday Times (founded in 1821) are published by Times Newspapers, since 1981 a subsidiary of News UK, itself wholly owned by the News Corp group headed by Rupert Murdoch."

    The Wail is as good as ever
    "If you didn't do anything that wasn't good for you it would be a very dull life. What are you gonna do? Everything that is pleasant in life is dangerous."

    I want to see the hand of history on his collar.

    You really spent time to do all of that on Times website?
