[quote]No better, no worse, just different. Pretty much what I thought about the rest of the V5 "upgrade".

I can't see the point in making all the work for yourselves (& us in learning how the new stuff works) when there's no perceptable improvement. have to agree here,

and it is a bit slow

What`s the catch.

No catch...it's as crap as the normal one...............lol

Yes I was asked to try it.......clicked on the link as I was intrigued about the Black thingy.
As usual could not find anything black !!
Sent a message in the place told to and still can't get anywhere.

I said..."Was trying to find this .........Facility to switch to black background with light grey text - we feel this is very stylish. It defaults to existing white but can be set to black in portfolio options....but could not see an options.

REPLY..."It's under http://beta.ephotozine.com/mysettings/about and portfolio style.
Hope that helps".......
The link went to the page I was on already.
Sent another message...

"Sorry no it does not help......it does not go to a page like in my ordinary epz where there's a list of options like my settings".....
REPLY..."Yeah, it's only on beta a testing site at the moment, it's a taster and testing ground to where we want to take the portfolios."...

As I said it's CRAP.

Keith
p.s. did find a TOOL thing that's like the list in the existing portfolio......no black thing there.

So you don't get something like this when you log into your beta portfolio?

Get this far and then scroll down to the bottom - the black/white option is there.

You have to log in using your password settings etc to get the extra facilities. As for not been any better, no adds choice of backgrounds etc looks like you can't please everyone. For me it looks excellent.

ALISON...got that header like your (not in black obviously)......
NICK....."For me it looks excellent"....it's O.K. for ALL the people who can get it......bit like a Lottery win!!!

When I click PORTFOLIO I get a portfolio.....like Eviscera.............

ALISON.....Tools gives me the list I have in the old site....no link to WHITE...as lobsterboy above.

It's all a bit like SEX...a mystery until you have done it............

Just looked at my (black) pf. and the portfolio button's there, where Alison and Chris are showing us but it's not working.
Shall I post a report or will one of you?
Hold fire on that report!
Bizarrely, now it is.

. . . and now it's not.

@Jester - try ctrl+F5. Sounds like your browser is caching things in a big way.

First thing I tried Chris.
In fact I'm an expert at it using this site.
The CG's just slowed to a crawl again.
