Formatting problems with new layout
First I'd like to say that I love this site, and the way it connects family with our son even though many live in different cities and I often travel for work. However, the recent format changes you've made were not executed well at all. There are a couple things that I would consider to be significant problems with the new layout:
1) When playing videos the control box at the bottom and box that shows the age at the top overlap with the picture, blocking view of a significant portion of the video. In some videos where the critical activity is in the bottom portion it makes the video almost unwatchable. This is a significant miss that needs to be corrected. I'm working in a city away from my family, and videos of my son are now partly blocked. It is incredibly frustrating and I've already asked my wife to find another platform to share videos of our son with me.
2) Every time a new picture/video is opened the "activity" page at the right opens, even if I closed it while looking at the previous photo - very annoying. There should be a way to have the "activity" page stay closed.
3) The new layout doesn't seem to load properly on my wife's computer (MacBook running Safari) but loads ok on my computer (PC running Microsoft Edge)
Lifecake stopped working for me altogether!!!! I get the emails, open them but can't get into the site to view the photos. I get as far as the "see all moments" and when click on it takes me a to a page to register for my own account. I don't WANT an account. I don't NEED one. I just want to be able to see my grandchildren! I told my daughter to find something else to share photos on. Your website is a major league FAILURE!!! It was never very user friendly to begin with, and now it's beyond ridiculous. I was invited two years ago. I accepted and was able to see the photos until just recently, although I also experienced the problems described above. Sadly, It stopped working just after my second grandchild was born. I live 300 miles away, so this is the only way I can see my family!
