Yay ! All looks good. But no more winged hamsters ?
Bee Boo Boo Bee booo boo boo (Also telephone dialing sound)
You’re still having problems in Firefox.
I’m in firefox and it looks fabs.
So that’s a baby fennec fox?? B/c it looks like what you’d get if a hammy and a chiuaua made sweet, sweet lovings. I want.
Cute, but I’d rather have mah fat girl Rizzo’s pic than this weird alien on the right of my comment.
I LOVE IT! The typography design is great! I am also happy that I will be getting 12 percent larger squirrels.
Bigger pics! YAY! I love it! It looks fine in Safari AND Firefox for me.
Meow! Everything seems to work fine (using Firefox here). And please ignore my email to you re. Ican´t find the logon – just found it! It´s at the top of the page, RIGHT at the top!
Love the new design, very clean and more functional with the accounts system.
Hm, just having said that…. now that I´m logged out, there isn´t an easy way to log in again on your page without having to open a new window and go to WordPress first…. any suggestions? Or am I just not looking hard enough?
Loving the new site – absolutely love the cute monster gravatars!
The only issue I’m seeing with Firefox (on WinXP Pro, yes I browse at work) is that the images–post images, the top bar and the sidebar images–are overflowing their boxes.
cath here. of course “cath” was already taken in wordpress… so now i’m “breakfastpumpkin.”
love what you’ve done with the place, meg
I love the new look. it’s clean and bright, just like all of us. (ahem)
ps I didn’t want to say anything but… I never really did LOVE those hamsters.
Looooooooooooooooooooooovvvveeeeeee iiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiit!! The End.
I miss Hammy McPantersons. :o(
It looks beautiful! But I hate change. So……..I have to say I miss the ultra cute background!
OK, I had to leave another comment, partly because I uploaded my own avatar and I’m just darn pleased with myself.!! Wheeee! But also because I want to add that YELLOW is my favorite color and it makes me v. happy to be surrounded by eet on CO. Any other yellow fans out there??
I must be blind because I can’t see how to log in. I see how to sign up for a comment account, but not how to log in if you already have one.
Otherwise, total thumbs up. I miss the hammies, but really like the new design.
Aaaaaargh!! Looks fine at home using Firefox. At work, however, with Internet Explorer…not so much. None of the pictures show up and the background is white and the layout is all screwed up…HALP! The thought of not being able to access Teh Qte at work is too much…*sniff*
The new layout looks amazing – I love eet! Especially having avatars – that will be kewl as well – although my name is of course taken, so I’ll have to come up with something quirky and new to be known as.
And hey, PantsHamster ™ is still there – top left on a widescreen layout, people!
Love the new look!
I really like the new look, peeps. And I really hated the last Facebook change so It’s good to know I’m not adverse to all things new. But the real question is does my avatar work?????
And it does. I feel like we should all have our screen names incorporated into our account names so we are still the same people.
Hey – Just wanted to say that I am the person formerly known as “Birdcage” who is now forced …. ur …… “compelled” to be “birdcager” which, while accurate, has a certain negative connotation that I don’t love. But here I am……and I do love the new look.
Beh …. my new avatar didn’t work …..
OK, I can’t figure out how to add the avatar. At least, I’m not seeing anything that says “add avatar by clicking here”. What’s that secret? Also, can anyone tell me why I can’t see any of the avatars for the peeps leaving comments? I’m on my work computer running XP and Internet Explorer.
Looks good! Might want to combine the duplicate categories of Encore Presentayshe and ResQte. Other than that, much more user-friendly. Kudos!
Hey! Cool new layout! Excellent job!
I think it looks great! Love it!
The new site layout is absolutely terrific. It’s a very nice improvement!
Love the re-design! Good work!
I approve, now more ferrets! please?
Makes me nervous-I’ll comment but the avatar thing has me flummoxed. I’ll do it on a day I’m less stressed. I just had to clean out Killer’s ear and I’m all “aawwwed” out. Congratulations on the new format. I am seeing it through Firefox, too. The type seems bigger-YAY!
I miss the hamsters and their pants. I will probably get over it eventually. I am like one of those horrible design clients who wants a different brand but refuses to change anything. Looks great Meg!
Ah! It seems that I got a cute little critter/avatar anyway! OK by me! None of that annoying ‘reading’ and ‘following directions!’ Thanks CO!
Nice changes! I loved it
Wow, it’s all fancy and pretty! I like it.
It looks great on Firefox here (at work)…no I’m not ashamed to be on CO during work hours!! But I’m also on 3.0.7 on a PC, not 3.0.8 at home on a Mac. I didn’t check CO on my home computer though.
And I am SOOOO uploading my own avatar.
Very much miss the hamsters. Without them flying around, the site loses some of teh cute.
So no help for us lowly Internet Explorer users?? *weeps softly in a corner*
Oh well, that just gives me more cute to look forward to when I get home from work. *cheers up*
?!!! “CoffeeCup” is taken via WordPress! I don’t know if I should add a number or something now, or just stick with having some generic avatar on here.
Yay! Love me some Cuteh.
Just checking my avatar ……..
Uh ohs…it looks beautiful but now my true identity is outed by my WordPress login. I may have to fix that.
Wow! I love your new look! And this is my kitty picture that you put up as an option for an avatar. She’s not a baby anymore, Prissy is 3 years old and a spoiled brat!
OMGILOVEIT! Congrats Meg!
I LOVE IT… Great job C.O. I have been waiting patiently for you to make needed improvements, and the wait was worth it!
Its fabulous! so grown up! I love it.
I like it! I’m glad to see the glossary get the prominent link it deserves.
Testing, testing (thump thump) Is this thing on?
Scooterpants, grown up? You wanna be grown up? Then what are ya doin’ with a name like Scooterpants, mmmmmm?
Whoa. It’s all novel now. *novel novel*
And that is the weirdest avatar I have ever seen. Sorry.
I agree, the avatars are wierdy weirdy. I signed up so I could put on my own and now I’ve been roped in to letting the ferrets have a blog! *shakes fist at Meg!* As if their kneesock ego’s weren’t inflated enough!
Ooh…I DO like! I wonder if my avatar will work with my new WordPress account…?
Congrats on all the hard work!
And what a lovely fox! he/she almost looks pink!
That fox is all ears, hahahah, I keels myself.
I like the avatars, they’re exactly weird enough.
Yay, bigger photos!
Looks, um, good. It will take a bit of time to digest the new look and determine whether or not it is improved.
Hmm, let’s see if this works *bat bat*
If not I’ll stick with the hibiscus with green arms and feets.
Love the new look.
Sad I can’t have my name.
First Facebook, now this? GAHHH!!!!
LOL Just kidding, it’s good
Cool. Formerly M. V. Ta daa. Forgot to mention I do love the new site. Like the bigger font, too.
@Camille and everyone who wants to use their old name or handle : you can do eet! Go to your profile, put the name you want in the Nickname field and select it under “Display publicly as”. Ta-dah !
Now if I could only get my avatar to work… Testing testing *bonk bonk*
I love the monster avitars! (this is really just a test comment)
I love eeeet !
LOVE the makeover!
I also love that my baby boy Otis can now show his face every time I post!
CoffeeCup, I noticed the same thing – at home, on my Mac, Firefox is messed up. Here at work on my PC it’s fine. Mac still rules.
Aw poop! He didn’t show up! My little alien guy looks angry, and I’m not angry. Really!
Does not work with firefox on linux
The right sidebar is beside the white box on the yellow background.
But with opera it looks fine
Hope you fix it soon, I need my firefox
I love what you’ve done with the place!
Learning to embrace my monster avatar ……
Katfighter, what alien guy? Is that lovely droopy doggyface from another world?
Love the new layout! But I, too, shall miss teh hammiepants. mfrost.typepad isn’t showing up like this, though. And I’m having trouble getting the Gravatar page to load so I can switch to my other avatar, but I’m guessing it’s prob’ly overloaded with all the CutePeeps right now!
Do we no longer have a “preview” option?
Oh! The posts are numbered!
It looks SWEET in IE, but in my Firefox browser there’s something wrong. Hope it can be sorted!
Smiley testingk. Plz to ignore.
Yeah, my avatar is working now!
Moar smiley testingk.
Where y’all gets the smileys ?? Don’t see none
Carp! Image linkies didn’t work the same way as they do on the CuteTalk Forum. Poohbear, that’s where I got mine from. When we post smileys from that site into a comment, we’re able to see what the “code” is for them. For example… is : lol : without the spaces between the “lol” and the colons.
Thanks Brinnann. Apparently we can make them too, like so :-))))
OMG! That means between my new Crackberries and smiley options, I will be tinkering, tinkering, tinkering the weekend away.
Crossed messages, Brinnann, thanks, I guess that’s what I meant…
Now if I could only get my avatavar to appear… Avatavacadabra! (Stiiiill nothingks.)
There’s my bebeh. With the Eye Squeeze of Love.
testing my lamb thx
Hey, this is nice.
Good job Meg et al.
Love the fennec fox.
But I saw a pic of a fennec hare that seriously rivals our little fox guy here.
WAIT! We have smiley capability?
@Biscuithead, April Fools is over.
nice, big, disorienting at first. good for the hard of seeing…
what the hell animule is that?
Fantabulous Meg & Co.!!!! I did not think this site could every possibly get any better – and it just did!!!
BTW, whatever issues folks are having with their Firefox, are not manifesting in mine. Either you’ve fixed them, or folks need to get updates. Still contemplating avatars though….
Poohbear is a genius – I have my name back!
Poohbear, I think this is what you meant:
Now if only my new avatar works…
Yay! I guess I was just too impatient! Theresa, that sweet droopy face boy of mine is definitely heavenly!
Oeuf course. Tee-hee ! Am getting the hang of it, thanks to all you emoticon experts !
How exactly do i post to CO through my wordpress account?
wannadance, looks like a nauseous (sp?) crawfish.
Yay! Since there’s so many Michelles on CO, I decided to change from Michelle S. to copperbat.
OK, I’m pretty sure I’m having a blonde moment because I can’t find the login. Someone said it was right at the top, but mayhaps I is blind?
Oh, never mind. I think I have it now.
yankeebird, share! I still have no idea how to log in!
Well, I thought I did, but I’m not positive. I was looking all over for a place to log in here, but you have to log in at wordpress… I think.
Love the fox and the new site look!
OK, came here before caffeine and had my mind ‘splode at the change. I’ll have to wake up before I decide. But I love the bigger photos.
See, it says I’m logged in, but my avatar isn’t showing up and my name is still black (instead of linky like some people’s), so I’m not sure I’m doing it right.
Wow, looks great! Love ze bebeh fox! Teh cute!!!!
yankeebird – I see your avatar – little fruits with faces? I couldn’t see my own avatar until I did a reload. Also, I think maybe only people with blogs get linky names.
Camille – yay, I see my avatar now too! I guess it just took a little while for it to show up.
See here’s the problem…I’m logged in at wordpress, but I’m not sure how I should go about accessing CO to log in with that name.
Oooh! I figured it out!! You have to use the right “display” name off wordpress and you have to use your email address. That’s how you “log in” and post. I see Maru!
Looks wonderful. Thank you for the redesign!
The site doesn’t look so great in Safari’s Beta version. The images are larger than the middle section allows for, and they overlap into the right column. Looks fine in Firefox though.
Loooove that the comments are numbered.
Never mind me, just trying things out… *-)
This one’s for CoffeeCup (if it works) (c)
Boo-hoo, big faaaaiiil. :’( Only works on MSN messenger.
Harumph. Deed nawt werk.
FRAK! How do you hyperlink in this thing, Teho? I see you worked it out on the previous post.
brinnann, you hyperlink by using the HTML tags. Cute Overload
display text here
Take out the hyphens to use the link.
For some reason, even though I linked to cuteoverload.com, it didn’t link to cuteoverload. I’ll try again…
I wish there was a preview button!
Hm…I don’t know why it isn’t linking to just cuteoverload.com
I don’t know why it didn’t show the HTML code either, because I used hyphens to separate the tags.
You figured it out!! Yaaay brinnann!
Love the clean design, especially the picture of Mr Broken Wing Kitty in the Pink Shirt on the mast head. This works fine on IE, but I got the hand from my work admin when I tried to change my avatar at work. Denied!
To think there was a time when I didn’t know what a Fennic Fox was [shudders]. Oh, Cuteoverload, you have taught me so moishe.
But that’s just a regular link. I wanted to hyperlink in a word.
On the CuteTalk forum, it’s (excluding spaces) [url=http://website.com]word to be linked through[/url]
I’ve tried substituting “url” with “html” and [ ] with
I’m on Firefox, and I have no trouble whatsoever. Do y’all have the latest updates etc.?
Is anyone else having trouble getting Gravatar to load, or is that just me?
starlinguk, IT just updated my computater this morning, but I’m on IE.
After struggling to find the password of my forgotten never-used wordpress account, I can Finally post here, and scream YEEHAAAAAAA!!! Avatar possibility! I was talking about that ages ago, and now there it is! Yes!
Plus, the new layout is great Meg, really, clap clap to everyone that works on this site.
The force is strong with this site! ^^
Check out Theo’s comment here: http://cuteoverload.com/2009/04/02/its-just-never/#comment-322993
This is what I’m trying to do.
Oooh! You’ve knocked out some walls and changed to hardwood floors! Very open and airy. How’s my avatar? (btw birdcager – love your ekkie)
v.good. v.good indeedy.
I’m feeling like myself again!
…or not. My (gr)avatar will start showing up soon, I guess…
I luv it! Tewtelly ’09.
Hmph. I tried to sign up, but it refuses to send a confirmation email to me. PTHTPHT!
(It would be nice if we could still see the photo while we’re in the comment thingy.)
I love the new look but I do miss the hamsterpants and would like to go visit them. I don’t see them on my screen. But overall, nice job!
AuntieMame, try your spam folder.
It’s nor working properly with IE8. But it’s fine with Firefox.
Must. Test. Login. And. Avatar.
Avatar not working. Oh well. Maybe later.
Site looks fine in Firefox.
- The poster formerly known as bev.
Wonders where all the old peeps went… Did you guys just get new display names???
I don’t even know if I did the avatar thing right
[Hey hey, you're not REALLY Brittany F., are you? I know that photo. C'mon, fess up! - Ed.]
LOVE the redesign. Way to go!
if I did this right then that’s a picture of my tabby boy, Philly, in my avatar. Also? I love love love the new larger font size. No more squinting at the Qte. kthxbai
Hey, I’m still here (waving)
Preddy overload. Preddy preddy overload.
To paraphrase Tom Waits, commenting accounts lead to blogging just like marijuana leads to heroin. God help us all.
HOLY CRAP it is cute overload 2.0 and it looks SUPER FABULOUS!
@AuntieMame: Having same problem…..no confirmation emails.
Figure the entire CO universe has overwhelmed WordPress
And I don’t know how to do fancy stuff like smileys either!!
Whoo! Devil pancake with severe exotropic strabismus doing the egyptian! It looks exactly like me!
Patito, foreign types with the hookah pipes say way-o way-o way-o way-ooooo-oooo.
Excellent!!!! I do not have time to explore all of the new features but it looks GREAT, all!!
WordPress was slow in sending me my email. Firefox at home works fine, but Firefox at work was confuzled with this site and its jiffy changes.
OMG the new site is totally beautiful – so bright big and cheerful. and i love that my cute puppy can be my avatar…
Testing my comments to see if the avatar works.
Yeay! Thanks, Meg! Now my little Pallina can accompany me on my posts…
The right side of CO is sticking out again, like I had mentioned in my email. It’s just something about Firefox 3.0.8 for Macs I guess.
Not working so great on my computer with Firefox 3.0.4 and Windows XP. Looks great on Internet Explorer, but I love Firefox!
Hello, shiny dewds. This is Clare, lover of toebeans, trying out my new name and avatar.
MCLAMBERSONS! HOW WONDERFUL!
Love it all, EXCEPT the ginormous text size!! Blech.
But..but…I liked the fairy hamsters!
Other than having fewer cartoon hamsters, I approve of the improvement.
Looks awesome, CO! You bringin’ cute to a whole – nuva – level!!!
I love the site massively. Wouldn’t mind it the comments were a little smaller since youse gets soooo many.
Oh frak, sorry about my, er, butt there. You can delete it if I offend.
Hmmm Testing One two three
Kitty Adventures Blog
Testing four five six
Nice improvements! Loff the beeger peekchurs!
It looks smashing to me!
Oh awesome! I forgot I already had an avatar registered with WordPress. Now my Elvgren pin-up lady can beam at all of you.
Psst, Gail1st, hint, roll your mouse over the smilehs !
wow, big changes for cute overload! away typepad, onward wordpress!
Nice. I love the bigger pictures.
I am so glad it was a site redesign and nothing more. I was in withdrawl there until my IE figured out teh qte. Now for the nerdy geek review: The UI is cleaner and more accessible, the color scheme is familiar and friendly, and gee I can read everything without having to squint and stuff. And avatars are too Kewl! And moar bigger pictures – squeeeeeee!
Sorry I lost the professionalism I mean to have.
love it, love it, love it! yay for bigger pics and bigger type! thank you for not hiring facebook’s redesigners!
I think the site looks great! Wheee! Now back to cleaning my apartment….
Maybe it’s just me, but I don’t see where I can email a link to a friend, etc. I also don’t see a “permalink”. Other than that, I think the site looks wonderful.
Love it, love it, love it, love it! Oh and did I say I love it??
When I signed up for a WordPress account, it gave me the option of “Gimme a blog” or “I just want to comment” (or something along those lines)… I chose the latter, and can’t seem to figure out how to add my own avatar. When I go into “Edit Profile” there is nowhere to upload an avatar that I can see…. Do I need to sign up for a blog to be able to upload an avatar???
mind you, I kinda like my Dancing Viking Christmas tree….
I, too, miss the flying hams, and all the nice rainbow-sherbety background colors. Also, I can’t even reach the home page when I first go to the site! I just get blank white screen, ads, and then leetle teeny posts. When I click on one of the posts, then I get to the home page. Also, I’m a bit worried that there’s been nothing new in -I think- a couple of days! Meg! NOMTOM! Theo! Where are you? I need a Qte fix! Gahh! So addicted…*sigh*
PS OMG I think they are messing with us to see how much we can take! Getting paranoid! AAAHHH!!!!
Fix the RSS – Please! No more Images in RSS turns the RSS-Feed into a completely useless feature.
testing to see if my avatar works…
The site looks great – congratulations! However, the RSS feed doesn’t display images. Could you please fix that?
You don’t have to sign up on WordPress to get an avatar. Sign up for a Gravatar. http://gravatar.com/
Me no likey… WHY oh why must things always change?? (Never mind those silly Laws of the Universe.) I’m too old for this… avatar business… but then I don’t Facebook either, and my cell provider is for Old People Who Don’t Text, so just leave me in the corner with some sticks to whittle & I’ll be fine. Thankee.
+1 on “Fix the RSS”. The images don’t load at all on my iPhone RSS reader. Text is cute, but for cute *overload* we need our images back.
I’ve been away for a few months… I come back… to a whoppin’ 12% more sweet cute awesomeness. yee haw!
does it bother anyone else that Mc_______ersons is redundant? Mc MEANS “son of”…
I like the new website. My only complaint is that the Cute Overload app on my.yahoo.com doesn’t work anymore. It’s doesn’t display new posts so I don’t know when you update the site. I forget to stop by with out the headlines catching my eye.
My daughter and I have just realised that we’ve had no updates from you coming into Google Reader lately. I popped over here to have a look and found loads we’d missed. They date from this post so something you did must have changed my reader subscription. I shall unsubscribe and then resubscribe and hopefully it will pick it up again, but I thought I’d mention it in case you’ve lost other readers without noticing it.
Same issue as Phoenix. Except I’ve subscribed to the new feed and it is pretty worthless in google reader
Yay! Love the larger photos.
