    Default Who hates the new USEA website???

    I do!!!!

    Maybe its because I don't know how to navigate it but it looks cheap to me. I liked the old site much better.

    I like it. It's easier to read, less crowded and navigates nicely. I think they did a nice job revamping it.

    It was a hard site to re-design, because the old one was actually so poorly designed. It took a long time to learn where everything was on the old site. People are balking because they had figured out the old site...but the truth is... this one is laid out in a MUCH more logical manner!

    As a web designer there are some small details I would change...but overall...I think it is GREAT!

    I like the lighter background, just because of my old eyes and the contrast ... and I really appreciate anything the USEA does with its website. I know how hard those guys in that office work and how much they have to budget every single detail. Kudos.

    Nobody ever makes posts saying they LOVE things that change. We are so resistant to new things. Embrace it. It's fine. It's not going back. Consider it evolution.

    Haven't poked around it too much yet, but so far have been able to find what I was looking for pretty easily. So that's a thumbs up. Even after however many years I still relied on my browser's memory to find stuff on the old site. HATED that one.

    Will someone please tell me how to find the sign up for email event notifications?

    I knew where it was on the old site. I tried to enter info last week, but because they were changing to the new one, it would not let me do it.

    I would greatly appreciate it if you can point me in the right direction.

    Love it. Much easier to read and navigate. And there are no auto drop down menus to come down and get stuck over what I'm trying to read!

    I went on it today to look up an old instructor, to see if he was competing at all down in Florida and guess what.... you can only look up records - both horse and rider - if you are a current member. I am trying to understand what is the marketing point of that?

    This is not true: go to "Competitions," then on the right hind side there should be a tool bar labeled "Competitor Resources." The same Horse/Rider searches as before are there.

    I've got it open now and I kind of like it. I knew where stuff was on the old site but it was poorly designed and not easy to navigate. However, I use it to print out the dressage tests I need and it took me some looking to find where they reside on the new site, I had to do a search. For future reference, they are under the "about us" tab and over to the right under "Documents" there's a link to all forms and documents.

    Yes, one thing I would prefer to make "front and center" is a documents link.

    The site is powered by Drupal- this is the drupal icon. They need to create a new favicon is all.

    With all of the content, different programs, sponsors, and news, I can imagine it being a difficult site to organize! I really enjoy how the information was streamlined with the main links and the splash pages linked to them. So glad that the drop down menus are gone. They were such an ugly headache!

    Way to go, team!

    At first glance, improvement IMO.

    I love it...
    Can actually use this one on my phone. The old one had those drop down boxes that could only be accessed by a hovering mouse.
