Looks an improvement after having a quick look       Thumb Up

I need to apologise. A week or so back I said the new site was as slow as DIAL-UP. That was an insult to DIAL-UP. sleep

Dan,

Thought it easier to exlain with a sceenshot, but to me navagation is the most important thing with a website, and this is where the site falls down.

The other thig is the future gallops.

the way the old site, had each meeting as a link, is much better then what you are offering on the new site now.

http://www.tabonline.com.au/sports/SPORT8.html

much easier to navagate, and find the venue using the old fixed price way.

It is to confusing to find the venues, the new way  wink

I think most would agree with that suggestion, MagiC, but I'd expect there won't be changes made in an ad hoc manner.

Probably things will be done in a batch?

Also, I'm sure UNi would not have made the changes (they have made) just for the fun of it.  I'd think the new product will allow additional functionality as the business expends.  And of course we're all resistant to change. biggrin

I find it a lot easier to have a bet DD, with the NEW functionality, but trying to navigate between races on the same meeting really annoys me smiley

I don't expect Dan to make all the changes or do them immediately, but I do think he would love the feedback to make this the best betting site on the net  tongue

DD, hopefully they don't expend, or do you know something that we don't?

MagiC

Agree with all that.  I go into TOMORROW's racing, look at Race 3, then have to exit and back to TOMMORROW's racing and start again to see race 5.

At the Betfair session yesterday I discovered I could read the screen better WITHOUT glasses than with.  Well that's my excuse. smiley

I normally run 3 or 4 sites at same time with a PC memory capacity that does the job. Since returning form holidays when I turn off new Unitab site, my PC runs as per normal. With new Unitab on it makes everything very slow. Coincidence?

Notwithstanding the criticisms, I think the side-by-side presentation of tote and fixed odds makes up for any angst. smiley

It'll all get sorted.

Typical of many computer upgrades, it seems that they have relied on asking the IT people, or senior management, whether it's ready to be put into action.

Why, oh bloody why don't they ever carry out a survey of fair dinkum users?

And then take notice of the answers?

It took us less than two minutes to point out the deficiencies.

For a $1000 or so, they could have saved the costs of patches and new releases etc etc.

Maybe they'll get it right eventually, but then maybe not.

The navigation isn't the main concern to me as it's just up on the top, just needs getting used to.  Undecided
Why do you have to hit 'login' button now to get the login banner when the login banner used to be waiting there previously. Now takes longer to log in & you have to log in everytime to see the good form. Still don';t see the point of even having the old form as it's not even a complete formguide & it no longer takes you to previous races anyway! THe old form needs to be put in the junk pile.

Yesterday I place some trebles on the Kilmore races and went out after the first leg had finished. I returned home later at night, fortunately I got the treble, however, when I went to the new website and I was unable to find the all anticipated payouts on all the starters in the last leg.Do they disappear after correct weight on the final leg and if not where are they ?

I finally went across to my NETBET PRO account and found them there but re the new website I am puzzled.

Yep I've noticed that too. Approximates are no longer viewable after the race. I guess their reasoning is if you missed it then there is no reason to show it.  shocked
Sometimes when you're out & miss the races, good to see what you had going by way of Quaddie. I've been at the track sometimes & tried to get the Quaddie Approx, can be a battle unless you find an experienced operator.  lol

Also the distance of each race is missing from the Quaddie page(before the races are run), surely it would be helpful to know the distance when putting on a Quaddie.  lol   lol   lol

Its an improvement, call me pedantic but why oh why couldnt they find a picture of an australian horse and jockey for the racing home page not a bloody american - lets hope someone kicks the bogan up the bum and get the queensland racing website into the 21st century, ever try to find the stewards reports specially for a meeting from a track whose name startes down the alphabet, silly buggers can't even put the track names in alphabetical order, not that bogan bob would care, he still thinks the internet is something associated with a prawn trawler  and that simple logic is the latest hip hop band. what

Good pick up Stan. I originally thought the horse with Pink saddlecloth was running at MV for some reason but the number tags give it away. Why would they put an O/S horse as the welcome to Unitab?  what

Maybe it is?? I can't recall them running with numbers in their manes but maybe they did it as a one off?

I just went to have a look at what's in at Rocky tomorrow.
OLD SITE :(tomorrow races, Rocky Fields) see all 2 clicks.
NEW SITE: (tomorrow races, Rocky, R1, back, R2, back, R3, back, R4, back,R5, back, R6, back, R7, back, R8, back. 18 clicks & my server being a bit slow not too flash.

Conclusion: Don't think I'll be looking at Tomorrows racing much anymore.

On the meetings page, toward the top in the 'quick links' section, there is a fields link, even for pre-sale (tomorrow's) meetings. Still one more click than it used to be, granted, but much easier than back-forward-back-forward.

Example: http://unitab.com/racing/2010-2-19/fields-BR.html

If you select the "Future Racing" menu at the top, and choose a meeting such as "BR (P)", all the races are listed out for easy clicking if you need to visit them individually. Removes the need to hit back.

The Futures racing page, is to hard to read the title, and hard to make out what race meeting is what chin

Am I the only one that struggles to find a meeting, and or race on this page ?
