I understand what you mean. I don't like big changes either! The problem is, the site was broken. When I acquired the site I had to do a lot of work just to piece things back together to make them work. The software on this site was old, and vulnerable to attacks. Because the site software was so old, I had to downgrade everything on my server to make it work too, which put the entire server at risk.Maybe its because I'm an old fart but this sure doesn't make things easier trying to find things. Old saying " If it ain't broke don't fix it. just my 2 cents.
I'm hoping that you all will, eventually, find that the new site is much more efficient. Besides things working better, most tasks should be easier to do too.
As always, if there is anything you'd like to see different, please let me know and I'll look into changing it. That's one good thing about new software. It's a lot easier to update!
