I just checked it on IE11 and it displays correctly (the writing/symbols are all contained within the box). Possibly an issue with Chrome?

Yeah it looks to be an issue with Chrome specifically. I have tested it on Chrome, Firefox, Internet Explorer, Safari, Maxthon and the only one I see an issue with is Chrome.

Appreciate your input wink

I do find the colour scheme harder to read than previously. Too little contrast.

I have no trouble whatsoever with reading it, but I guess I still have young eyes smile

Why has Weatherzone gone back to default style? Is this happening to anyone else?

Ironing out some bugs I would suggest. A few people have been having some issues with the site in the last hour or so.

Hi great Page, just not sure if it's my end. I'm using chrome on my mobile I think chrome updated the browser. Now when I go on the forums the list is longer and narrower. I can still see everything as usual just have to scroll down a fair way to the bottom didn't do it last week. But yea probably just my mobile..

Once again great site.

Any chance of making mention of the current issues via Twitter and/or Facebook please?

Not every Weatherzone user is a forum user.

Not sure if it's just my problem, but my computer has reverted back to 'old Weatherzone'. Is this some cache problem just with me or has the new system been temporarily turned off to rejig?

If you're referring to GFS, ACCESS-R and the gang - Click on 'Radar & Maps', and on the menu that appears beneath, then click on 'Australian Charts' (on the right hand side of that menu). smile

The beta site appears to be still available: http://beta.weatherzone.com.au/

Please remove all fairfax advertising from Weatherzone refresh.

I am a paid pro member, and feel I should have zero ads, this is what I paid good money for, plus the other extra's. I really dont care for in house advertising, plus I think it is not that fair that paying members should have to put up with this.

So please remove these adverts, and the "network strip" at the top.

Or - have a menu for fairfax on the main menu bar under say - services, then I guess we will be all happy and not just weatherzone.

hrmm while it would be nice, you would have buckley's of that happening.
Every site you visit even if you are a paid member will still have links and ads promoting its business. It is in fact still 'in house' advertising.

Sure, other advertising is a different matter, but again, this is how a lot of websites survive. What would we prefer I suppose? Weatherzone with ads or no site whatsoever?
