    Marko,
    Your main page > 'Latest Downloads' buttons does not work as it did previously.
    Example: today (yesterday depending on time zones) you have added the excellent System Explorer v.2.4.1 yet it does NOT show up if clicking Latest Downloads. I have many other examples over the past week.

    Please fix.

        I prefer the old version of "Whats New" than the latest one.
        Having all the sites displayed on the one page instead of scrolling
        seemed better.

          jjj, if you take a look at the "pages" tab, you should find more information in list format regarding the latest downloads along with other info :)

            "pages" tab > "View more new downloads" button takes you back to 2007.

              Bala, change the "Ascending (a-z)" to "Descending (z-a)" and then hit the "Update" button :)

                Marko, I get that and I'm not trying to be difficult but your site is increasingly difficult to navigate. Compare freewarebb to where it was 30, 60, 90 days ago - all recent changes has made things painfully confusing to determine what's new today, yesterday and so on.

                Me thinks one of the many reasons why Google or Firefox 4 is so popular has to do with their respective UI's being clean and NOT busy. As opposed to say, MSN which has so many buttons to click boarding on a hallucinogenic barrage of images.

                In the next update please keep things simple for efficiency sake.

                  Bala, I do understand what you're saying, as it stands, most times we have to go with what Invision provide us in the form of updates and sometimes things are changed beyond recognition but like us, Invision also have to listen to feedback from their users and sometimes have to re-do certain aspects of their scripts when enough of the users complain - fortunately the search was one area they have improved since the last upgrade, particularly in regards to the download sections. In regards to 'what's new' and so forth, I will be taking a look at this with a view to making what improvements I can but if there is anything else specifically you feel has changed for the worse, do please let me know :)
                  Cheers

                      Marko, fantastic work!
                      main page > 'New Updates' button and 'New Freeware' button now work as one would expect.

                      You da'Man!

                        Bala, meant to post back telling you we had made a few changes :)

                        I've increased the listings to show the last 100 new downloads and 100 latest updates respectively, so these should take into account at least a few days worth of each :)

                        Cheers
                        Marko
