Don't like the new style...it may look cool but lacks information without endless digging.
Keep the classic underground!! Quit dumbing down.

Classic view please! The upgrade has actually been a downgrade. I prefer weather underground for all my weather needs but have found myself using other sites/apps. The new look and usability is horrible. It's not that I mind change, but it does have to be change for the better....

I have tried several times to get to the classic site as per you instructions and have had no positive results. It seems that when you have a very good product you just can not leave well enough alone. Please bring the classic site back. If I can not get on the classic site I will not be renewing my subscription. Thank you for you help.

Its still there...

Quoting 72. CDAVID:

PLEASE RESTORE THE CLASSIC MAP NEXRAD THAT DISPLAYS INDIVIDUAL CELL OF STORMS AND A VECTOR WITH DIRECTION AND TIME
THIS IS A USEFUL TOOL WHEN WEATHER APPROACHES.

THE NEW FORMAT IS NOT USER FRIENDLY AND IS LIMITED AS IT WILL NOT ALLOW CHART ANIMATION AND CELL VECTOR INFORMATION SIMULTANEOUSLY.

PERHAPS THIS IS OPERATOR ERROR, AGAIN NOT FRIENDLY TO THE USER.
PLEASE consider modification of the "new " display to allow presentation of these features.
Thanks,

I have to say, the new site is far less usable than the old site. I know the product team put a lot of effort into the redesign. Sadly it feels like they forgot to hold focus groups to see if there were any concerns that the end users have before rolling it out. It takes far more clicks to get the same information with NUWU than classic, and the quality of information is not nearly what it used to be.

Since I began using WU, the quality of information and easy of access are what made WU my site of choice. I'm now seeking another source.

Quoting 70. Neuro76:

I have been a paying member of Wunderground since 2001. I always preferred it to other sites because of it's powerful yet minimal interface. Have lots of data is important to me, and I now find it much harder to get than ever before. Please allow users to use the old interface. I do not want to stop supporting this site monetarily after 13yrs, but I am strongly considering it after this "update."

This afternoon, at least, I have been unable to post a blog comment using NUWU. The little "I'm thinking" wheely thing just keeps on spinning until Firefox times it out. WUclassic, which is normally fast on my computer, has been a bit slower than usual, too. It took 27 seconds to post one comment. Methinks maybe things aren't running so smoothly now that the "final" product has been rolled out.

Info not readily available. As one of you said, cartoon like. Too gimmicky. Not intuitive. I liked Classic but mostly used the version before this "new and improved" version. I'll use Classic again and begin the search for some site that gives me the info I need at a glance and in useful format. Wish me luck.

This is horrid, if i wanted a cartoon interface i would have let my kids have at it. This is not only unfair to those viewing it but to those who provide your data. Turn this beta crap off its hurting my eyes, and where are my links to weather radio and such. I didn't spent 500.00 putting up this stuff to not have it included. If i must deal with the cartoon then put the link back on.

Thats why it is still in Beta..


Then perhaps they shouldn't have rolled it out for all of Washington, Arizona and New Zealand. That's an awful lot of people for a "beta test". Beta should be reserved for those of us who are voluntarily doing testing, IMO. There are still way too many things that aren't working.

Quoting 61. DataPilot:
I would be surprised if the number of Classic users doesn't increase, at least initially. It's very unfortunate (to put it politely) that WU picked Washington State to be one of their guinea pigs. I have faith that the developers will eventually get the new site working, but holy cow, it is not ready for prime time yet!

I have been trying to use beta whenever I can. However, there are some functions that are still so broken that I have to keep going back to old WU.

Hang in there. I hope you don't leave completely.

I did finally switch to NUWU, but I can't deal with their latest downgrade. And cussed them out on the WUproductteam blog when I couldn't get back to Classic this morning. Thankfully, they fixed it so that Washingtonians can go back to the best and classic version.

Wouldn't it be interesting to know how much Classic usage increases as they roll out the Beta into ADD-WU (the newest WU that causes users to develop attention deficit disorder after looking at all the shiny objects and gaudy distractions)?

Uh-oh, BettyinPasco. The wu ProductTeam said when they went live with beta in WA state classic got shut down accidentally, and that's it's back. Maybe you can see Classic now.

I never left the Classic site, and still use it all the time.
I could never understand why they felt it was needed to change a Good Thing.

Sure, it needed a few ''tweaks'' here and there, but it's still the Better site.

I hate to see the classic leave. I like everything on one page. Easy to see what I need. Also I live in a rural area with "extended highspeed" faster than dial up but not even close to dsl. The classic site loads so much quicker. I was certainly hoping that they would just leave the Classic up for those of us that enjoyed using it but with the 5 day forecast missing I guess it's just a matter of time. Also hate the bright white look of the newer site. Feel I need sunglasses. My...tone it down a little.

There is three tabs there~ current data, almanac, & extended forecast. Click extended forecast. Then every time you check a location forecast it will open up with your new extended forecast default already opened.

So, they're dismantling Classic piece-by-piece?
Just lost the 5-day forecast. Maybe a couple of other things that I don't use (or have momentarily forgotten I use).

Just tried the "new" site again. Better than when it first launched. But still fails to deliver much "at-a-glance" information.

Very sad ...

My subscription expires at the first of the year. Can't imagine I'll renew.

I figured this would happen eventually after crass The Weather Channel bought them out.

toys, yeah
Quoting wu is starting to remind me of microsoftSkyepony:


On the new site your setting is probably set to Bestcast, where the old site is your local NWS forecast. This was part of why the new site was created, so a forecast could be issued for all the weather stations that upload to WU. It's great if your kinda far from or on a different elevation of where the closest town's forecast is given by NWS if you or a local has a Personal Weather Station on WUnderground. Every bug isn't worked out but I'm finding it consistently doing better on my PWS forecast then NWS since the airport is much closer to the ocean & gets a better seabreeze, tending to be cooler. If the NWS forecast is better for you, change your setting on your local forecast page back to NWS.

The link was removed to classic since classic isn't being updated with the new technology. There's no links to images, sat, youtubes for various events, no bestcast, no future improvements..it's just one of another 100 past versions of WU..take a timewarp in the wayback WUmachine. Hope some of you will join us in the present when you get back..it's got everything that was in classic & then some new toys.
