    Change in View Format for Comp Entries

    I used to be able to progress through the entries for the weekly comp with an arrow or Next button, I believe.

    Now each one is opening in a separate tab, with a white background.

    I am using Windows 7. Chrome is my browser.

    What has changed, or can you suggest something I have changed?

    Thanks, Ian

    Ian. Kym has done some things to ease the server load and make things run more efficiently. This is (probably) one of them.
    He'll specify.

    CC, Image editing OK.

    What Kym did was change the way photos load, so they load as you scroll down the competition entry list when voting, rather than all trying to load at once when you open the thread. This change only affects the voting page.

    Are you talking about voting Ian or just looking at the photos in a competition prior to voting starting? In that case they do open in a white bordered window and you should have arrows to move to the next entry. The white border and arrows have been there for some time now.

    Fair enough.

    Ricky, yes, it is at the pre voting stage I have come across the change, so I must have missed some recent comp,previews. I do find the sudden white background a bit of a visual shock as I work with the default Dark Green --- skin.

    If it makes the site more efficient then I won't moan further.

    Same here. At the pre-voting phase each photo now opens and loads in a separate tab . I can't scroll through the photos like I could last week .
    The name is Brad ......

    I have just seen this thread and yes, I am seeing exactly what Brad is.
    Clicking on a photo in a comp that is still open for entries open that image in a new tab.

    OK, thanks Ian, that was not what we changed, so we will need to look into it further. Appreciate you bringing this to our attention
