    The pictures got messed up with the transfer! But, we’re fixing it all. In the pattern catalog, there are supposed to be only technical drawings, and a link that shows the pictures we photographed with details etc. that you are used to from the old site. Also, all photos of creations that have a pattern that used to be in the pattern database are now under creations with patterns (you find it through creations). All the grainy pictures and pictures where you don’t really see anything will be exchanged.

    No more scrolling? I love how each set of patterns was grouped, it made them so much easier to find, rather than scrolling ten per page. As for pictures, I have no idea what I am looking at. Is the new pattern a straight top? A dress? How do you look at more pictures of the item? This website is too confusing!

    Aimee: You are right, the creations are not being sorted correctly yet, we are working on that. We are looking into your other comments as well. Thanks!

    And: Thanks everyone for the feedback and compliments. It really feels good to hear that and motivates big time!

    Joclin: You should be able to post in the forum now, I tried and it worked. The nice pictures and comments on the patterns are in our databank and will be transferred! We miss that, too….

    Missbalisto: We will try to make editing easier, explain it better and maybe even provide a how to for beginners!

    Subarashikilove: Good to hear that things are going faster! For most everything had slowed down (see Benedikta’s comment above on that).

    Julie: Yes, the fuzzy pictures are not good! We hope that we can take care of that soon. Also, just like on the old site, there will be more pictures to show you what you can do with each pattern.

    Oh, and, you will soon be able to edit your comments, this feature is not activated yet.

    And – did you see that you can upload any pix for your member profile as well as a banner? You can totally make it YOUR site. Flickr or Etsy Mini as well…

    So, play around and enjoy!

    Also, perhaps your script that parses the comment text should use a different divider string than just plain old “-” :)

    (Feel free to move this comment and the previous one to the bug forum)

    Congrats on the new site! It must’ve been a lot of work!

    A few notes:

    - I can’t seem to post bugs in your bug hunt 2.0 forum - http://www.burdastyle.com/pattern has odd refresh problems when the category dropdown is open - What happened to all of the nice photos and commentary that used to show up with each pattern?

    Congratulations, nice outfit for the new site! Have been waiting to upload some creations to the new site an it works very well. The only thing that seems a bit difficult is editing the creations or how tos … maybe you can give a little help for the beginner… thanks

    Another comment: it may just be my imagination, but the free patterns are downloading faster. My computer’s pretty fast, but occasionally had trouble with downloading the patterns. Now it’s a breeze!

    Hi Guys It will take a bit until its up to its speed, its just because so many users are accessing completely new data for the first time. Give it a bit and it’ll be just as fast as the old one.

    Congratulations on the new site – it is late now here, so I will have a proper exploration tomorrow. Can you tell us for curiosity what content management system is used and so on ? Thank you for all the hard work to bring us this site :-)
