Some ways to reverse new features

1) Disabling infinite scroll:
  • Go to My FlyerTalk Control Panel
    • Edit options
      • Disable Infinite Scroll


2) Restore previous post editing options:
  • Go to My FlyerTalk Control Panel
    • Settings and Options
      • Miscellaneous Options
        • Message Editor Interface and select Standard Editor -- extra formatting controls (you may see odd behavior in this unsupported editor)

NOTE: For ease of both members posting and Technical Support, this thread has been split into two threads for 2018; one exclusively for MOBILE devices, the other for DESKTOP devices. You can find them here:

Definitely not a fan of this "trending forum threads" when I click on Forum, with the actual forums list/tree just a tiny sidebar. I feel like it's little use for the amount of real estate it takes up. I'm guessing most users don't visit all the forums...and I definitely liked seeing the whole forum listed out

At least you can disable infinite scrolling, but it seems that every time there's an update to FT it defaults back to turning it on

You can also turn off the "trending forum threads," or at least you could. I haven't checked to see if you still can with this latest "upgrade."

The timer currently says "generated 36 minute(s) ago" so I'm waiting to see what happens when it resets.

At the moment, the listing order is generally by time of last post to the thread, other than those to which I've posted recently. So it looks like that may update with the reset too.
I seem to have the benefit of a new search. It includes a thread I've recently posted to but I am not subscribed to.

Unfortunately, it doesn't include the other thread that I unsubscribed from, as I no longer have a post in that thread! (The posts were moved here.)

That confused me as well, since I knew I had it turned off all along. Then, because of a hint in "the other" thread, I looked again and found the second one.

Thanks IBJoel!

I might have found a new issue. I did a Google search for "flyertalk IC Miami" and it brought me to the correct thread in the IHG forum. However it did not display the entire thread. It only went to sometime in 2016. After I then clicked on the IHG forum and used the forum searchbar there I got the entire thread. However I could not reproduce this issue. It might have been a one-off or it might be a deeper issue. I just wanted to post it here in case it shows up again.

Apart from one particular word of yours (which perhaps might have been substituted with something a little more tactful/diplomatic !), I must agree wholeheartedly with what you say here.

The changes have all the flavour of a British Airways 'enhancement'.

You can turn off "Trending Homepage" in MyFT. It has been in use for the past several months.

For threads that have them, the wiki's look awful. There's no box to contain the content and it's just in a giant white space.

I noticed this as well.

It is a very sad downgrade considering all the amazing FT wisdom carefully curated therein.

WHYYYYYY?

Likes are on mobile now and they're even more distracting than on desktop and there's no way to get rid of them there!

This is awful. I may just ditch FT altogether and put my time into something more productive.

Yeah, wikis look pretty messed up. Is it also cutting the last line in half for you guys? I'm reporting it.
