Cellar Tracker New vs Classic

I just added a bunch of wine to my cellar. I did most of it with the new interface. The old interface is just so much more efficient.

For the new one, why can't I just click on the vintage of the wine and be taken to the add screen, rather than select a vintage with a checkbox and then click for the next step?

And when I do add the wine, I have to scroll down to save, seems like that could be more efficiently placed higher so no scrolling is involved.

In the old version, with the efficiency of space on the screen it's just a lot quicker to enter stuff.

FWIW, I use an MBP 15" for everything.

After using the new version for a couple of days, i found that aesthetically it looks better with the side panel showing, but functionality is much better if the side panel is hidden. Makes it look and work closer to the older version. 2 Cents

That makes absolutely no sense! You are actually drawing people to WS, or at a minimum you are keeping them here. Given their logic, all talk about sports should be driven to ESPN or some other sports website. That is insane, pisses me off, frankly.

So, just to annoy those WS boneheads, I'm wondering if you have considered moving the "quantity" column back where it is in the Classic version. It's useful to be able to scroll down and see how many bottles I have of each wine. On smartphones, etc. the screen size does not allow one to see each wine and quantity. So, if the quantity column were to the left of the wine name, it would be more convenient. Other than that, I'm one happy camper (although unhappy with WS's idiotic paranoia).

Maybe they just hired Mark Squires..?

haggis - you'll have to make that inquiry directly within CellarTracker's framework as Mark is not permitted to participate in CT related threads anymore.

You have always been a gentleman, Eric, and I trust you will respect their wishes.

I really prefer the old classic version because of its simplicity AND you could get to everything from the one main page...all the links were right there and there was no clutter. I'll keep with the classic mode because it does everything I want it to and more.

I also prefer the classic version. Does anyone know how to only log in 2 bottles out of a pending 4 bottle purchase? Thanks

Personally, I don't use that "Pending delivery" feature anymore. I use a storage location called "Pending".

Seems like Eric is doing what WS asked him to do. What were you wrong about?

I've been using the new site since early beta, and while at first I wasn't a fan (mainly due to the Grape Stories change) I've long since used it almost exclusively when accessing by computer. For mobile, I still use the classic, as it just seems to run cleaner. The last feature I used the classic for on a regular basis was label printing, but Eric has since resolved that and the new site's functionality for that is great.

So even though you can't respond here, Kudos on the new site Eric!

I still can't get over the new font colour - it's too soft for my eyes to process and feel like I actually have to work to focus in on it.

Still can't stand the new site. Is there any way to have the classic mode as my default setting?

Bookmark the classic site?

I've been trying to get the new site to work for me but I'm still digging the classic site. Its more simple looking but in my opinion way easier to read and navigate. I like no-frills

I've been doing the same, but will hop over to the classic site once in awhile. I don't find the new site to be awful, just that it takes an extra click or two to do certain things.
