I don't know if this can be considered a bug, since it was never an official part of the site to begin with, but the script "Manga Updates Group Fix" no longer works.

Used to be using that browser script allowed you to still have a link to the scanlator group's website from the group page (like it used to be before the removal of that function some years back). Now, however, it's completely missing, which makes things a lot more difficult to find the group's site to download the chapter or leave thanks.

As I said, I know that was never an official part of the site, but I'm wondering what changed to break this (incredibly) useful feature.

The website has had a complete HTML overhaul, so it's possible that the script parsing functions have broken.

Unfortunately, we did not develop that plugin so we have no way to fix it.

On the mangaka pages, the 'Titles' section at the bottom doesn't list any series: it's just blank. It's like this for every mangaka I've checked.

Using a PC with Win 7 and IE 11.

The "cover preview" script is now also shot but what can you do.

Looking at it with my Chrome browser with a 1366x768 resolution screen, the site feels like it got zoomed in. I tried just zooming out but I can't get a good size for the font; some end up looking big, others would be too small.

I fully agree with Transdude1996, Juhachi, bhui, and all other users who say that the font is too large. I also think that on desktop/laptop PC new design looks worse than the previous one.

And, no, I won't get used to it. I have seen similar design changes before, they make everything mobile friendly while downgrading the experience for PC users, and I didn't "get used to it" in any of those other cases.

Please, mighty please, add an option to switch back to the old design. Besides being more convenient for multiple people, it was compatible with older browser versions (which made it usable in older operation systems too).
For example, I have a second browser, old Opera on Presto engine. I use it because it is very customizable and memory efficient, I can have 50+ different tabs opened in there and it would eat less than 1 GB of RAM. This is what I used when I contributed to MU (add releases, series, authors, other info, fix mistakes), but now I can't. And doing it in my other browser, Pale Moon, is less convenient, which means that I'll probably contribute less.

Or, at the very least, add user options to customize the look for themselves. Font size, disable text truncation in lists (always show full names), always display search results as lists - are some of the options that would be appreciated by many users, as you can see from replies here.

I don’t see a way to log out, maybe I’m missing it though.

On the mobile version, it's in the side panel next to your name. In the desktop version, it's next to your name in the upper right bar.

ImmLff,

Perhaps I spoke too soon when I said people "would get used to it". I said that because the same thing happened to me. Initially it seemed jarring and large, but after a few days it felt right. I agree that anecdotal evidence is not adequate to determine reality. I will add an option to reduce the font back to 12px.

It's super unfortunate that the site no longer works on older browsers. Before making this decision, I carefully looked over user agent data and found that the majority of users are using browsers new enough to use the site. I made the determination that moving the site forward in technology was critical to it surviving long term, and as over 60% of the traffic on the site is now mobile, it only makes sense.

I am reconsidering some text truncation now. Thank you for your suggestion.

This is fixed. Thank you for your report.

Can anybody help with a script (or any way) for a dark theme? The ones I have/was using won't work now 😀

What script were you using? If I can get a look at how it worked I might be able to just add it as an option.
