CAG New look forum

Recommended Posts

It was a lot easier to use CAG with the old format.  Now when you do New or Unread Posts you only get several posts coming up.  If you click on a post to read it, when you are finished and click to go out, it takes you to the top of the page of new posts and you have to scroll down to find the one that you have just viewed.  Must a admit I don't personally like the drab colours associated with the pages.

I got that however the issue is that when you bring it up and click on a post to read which may be near the bottom, when you are finished and come out of the post you are taken back up to the top of the page.  You then have to scroll and try and remember where it was so that you can look at the following post!

We already have an ongoing thread in connection to the upgrade where you can post questions....and hopefully resolve problems

 

Can we keep it in one place rather than numerous threads.

Regards

Andy

I have gotten in to the habit of opening links in a new tab and when I'm done. close the tab. Whilst this may not work for mobile users, most modern browsers support tabbed browsing.

I wasn't a great fan of the old site layout.

I prefer the look and feel of this new site, keep up the good work.

Hopefully these type of errors are temporary😊

 

Sorry, there is a problem

and

Sorry, there is a problem

Please wait 4 seconds before attempting another search

Error code: 1C205/3

 

and a search for "BT" and "British Telecom" produced no results. Who would have thought it!

There may well be broken hyperlinks.

If you can let us know when you find one, then we can probably find its target and then correct it.

That would be very helpful to everyone and we would appreciate it. Thanks

That's very strange. This is what it produced for me - https://www.consumeractiongroup.co.uk/search/?q="british telecom"&sortby=relevancy

This new layout is so confusing and just plain horrible. The idea you have to go back two pages just to see any new posts is ridiculous imo.

 

Also why are posts here being altermatically posted over onto Twitter? If I wanted them there I'd post them there. Utterly ridiculous.

What's happened to this site? I can't find anything! Mobile or laptop it all looks like Zippy from Rainbow has been let loose with his colouring crayons! It's about as user-friendly as the DWP website!

Sort it out CAG owners! Way to go to kill your already dwindling user base! For a forum that's moderated tighter than North Korea I can't understand how you can get this upgrade SO wrong!

Come on BankFodder, you asked for feedback and the general consensus is "Our survey said... 'Waah-Waah! XXX' "

post titles have been automatically tweeted over to Twitter for at least six or seven years.

There are at least 90000 or so tweets on Twitter which shows you how long it has been going on.

It must be simply that in the past you have never noticed

Well If thats the case I won't be posting here again in a hurry. If I wanted my queries broadcast to Twitter I would have done so.

Only post 1 of a new thread is tweeted......its amazing how tweeting your " Queries" quickly resolves and extinguishes the problem by getting their attention.........the power of social media hey ?

I was not aware of this and cannot recall giving permission for my posts to moved to Twitter.  Is your name shown?  Anything to do with Facebook and Twitter I avoid like the plague!

Sorry you seam to have mixed up my concern with whatever.........

The https://www.consumeractiongroup.co.uk/forum/111-benefits-and-hmrc/ now only shows sticky posts on the 1st page.

An actual and valid post asking for help now will only appear on page 2 when it is created. 

If you seriously do not understand how this might be an issue........

I truly despair! 

If I ask a question it has to be on page 1 as who [removed]  is going to go to page 2 to help me for a new questin?

Well you seem to think that will happen but..........

Nobody disabled is going to now get past page 1 as there is zero new content there. 

I can turn on caps lock if you like but you ain't listening are you!

No need to shout. The number of stickies in the Benefits forum is a subject that has already been raised behind the scenes.

You could simply have a few stickies that contain/collate listed links for certain individual benefits.

 

Going to be a lot of crossover so a simple link to the answer/thread/post and everything is good!

 

It's not (5 banning points awarded by a mod - insert favourite word about sex beginning with f here) rocket science? Although the ing at the end might be stone cold Olympic Ice skating 10!  

 

Rightsnet up dated not long ago and did a very good job of it. Here whilst I'm neither here nor there I'd love to see the disability impact study you did of this change????

    • This is a bit of a lengthy one but I’ll summerise best as possible.
       
      THIS IS HOW THE PHONECALL WENT 
       
      I was contacted by future comms by phone, they stated that they could beat any phone contract I have , (I am a limited company but just myself that needs a business phone and I am the only worker) 
      I told future comms my deal, £110 per month with a phone and a virtual landline, they confirmed that they could beat that, £90 per month with a phone , virtual landline  they also confirmed they would pay Vodafone (previous provider) the termination fee. As I am in business, naturally I was open to making a deal. So we proceeded. 
      Future comms then revealed that the contract would be with PLAN.COM and the airtime would be provided by 02, I instantly told them that this would break the deal as I have poor 02 signal in the house where I live as my partner is on 02 and constantly complaining about bad signal
      the salesman assured me he would send a signal booster box out with the phone so I would have perfect signal.
      so far so good.....
      i then explained this is the only mobile phone I use for business and pleasure, so therefore I didn’t want any disconnection time in the slightest between the switchover from Vodafone to 02
      the salesman then confirmed that the existing phone would only be disconnected once the new phone was switched on.
      so far so good....

    • I was talked into signing up with Future Comms (future-comms.co.uk) who cold-called me to change my mobile contract to them, via 02, rather than EE. I have a small business (only me!) and it's a business contract. True, the 4G network is better for my area. This company seemed to be a marketing set-up for various telecoms companies, so I assumed anything I signed would be with 02 and didn't think it might be a problem.
       
      They sent an email whilst I was on the phone to set up the direct debit mandate with my bank which I signed electronically. That was the first, of many, problems I found. Apparently THAT was my contract, binding me to 3 years and no 'cooling off' period, because I was a 'business' (meaning any consumer rights did not apply). When I subsequently asked in writing for a copy of my contract, that is what they sent - when I argued it was a DD mandate they insisted it was my contract!
       
      2 days later they asked for my phone details to get it unlocked which I sent. 10 days later, EE closed my account, so I changed the SIM card to 02 that had come a few days before. No network! They had done nothing about unlocking it. Fortunately I was lucky with EE who managed to give me the right codes, rather than the usual 10 days to go through Samsung.
       
      By this time I was suspicious of their set-up and wanted to cancel. As I said earlier, I found myself trapped into a 3 year contract with no 14 day cooling off period (they don't offer that). Promises to deal with my complaints never happened, promised return calls neither....and on and on.
       
      Ofcom's rules apply to consumers and small businesses (under 10 employees), yet this shower don't acknowledge that. They just repeat and repeat that I am a business so it doesn't apply. To cancel the contract I have to pay the full 3 year's fees!!
       
      I would like to know if others have had similar experiences? Or does anyone know how I can maybe declare the 'contract' unenforceable? I have never before been locked into something without a clear written contract, with t&c's! And, yes, I have asked, and yes, I have been ignored.
