We’re excited to have you explore this new website and hope it improves your experience on Logos.com!

I explored and now I am peeved!

I put a group of resources from my wish list into my cart then applied the New30 discount to see what items received the discount. Then I removed the items from my cart. BUT they did not return to/remain on my wish list!! My list of 67 wanted items is now a list of 20. I doubt I will go back and rebuild the list from these commentaries.

I am now an unhappy Logosian.

it looks like items are removed from your wishlist when you put them in your cart.

This is a new behavior that is NOT ALWAYS helpful because...

Mine did NOT come back.

I tried classic today ... the go-to's all point to logos.com ... wasted time.

They removed the prepub ship, and take absolutely no responsibility for pages and pages of in-development. I took Logos.com off my browser ... their site ... have at it.

Honestly, the new website is not “new.” All they did was use their Faithlife ebooks site for Logos too. The old is better in this case.

That's not the case.

Over the last few years the website has been entirely re-written, almost from the ground up. Once the basic features were written, Vyrso moved over, a few years ago. Other properties also moved over. But there were dozens of things you could do at logos.com that you couldn't do at the eBooks site (e.g. &unlocked=no).

Over the last several months, they've been adding those features, and reached a point where there is almost parity with the old logos.com site, so they've decided to make the switch. There will continue to be improvements, no doubt, but at least they're now using modern architecture and design that works across all devices (the old site was horrible on mobile).

So while you may not like the design (and there's a few things I don't like myself), from a technical perspective, it's a huge improvement.

So all we need now is something like https://classic.vyrso.com and everyone will be happy again.

I hope that's a joke! Smile

There were a lot of things that the Vyrso site didn't offer, that the new site does. While the ebooks site can still be improved, let's not dismiss all the new improvements and features.

The new site is here to stay (but will continue to get better). We should try to offer specific feedback/suggestions to FL, instead of merely saying that the old site is better. FL is listening, and does care what we think about the new site.

If the new site really bothers someone, I suggest that that person use their coupon (or not) and come back in a week.

Thank you, everyone for checking out the new site, and providing your feedback in this thread and through the survey. We are listening and monitoring the feedback closely, and we are working to address the issues as quick as we can and improve the site. 

There are many features that we are currently addressing, tweaking, and improving, but I wanted to call out these three things specifically.

  • We are working on fixing the bug where wishlist items are removed after being added to cart (rather than after purchase). I'm sorry for the surprise inconvenience this caused many of you.
  • Many of you have commented on not being able to see what collections a single title is included in. That information does exist, but it is currently at the bottom of the page. We are going to be moving it higher up on the page soon.
  • We are working on fixing the bug where sorting Pre-Pubs by progress is not sorting by ship date. 

We know that your experience on Logos.com is an important part of getting the resources you need (or want! Smile) to do your Bible study, and we take that seriously. Thank you for your patience as we continue to improve it for you.

This is my strategy. I'm just going to wait until they work out the kinks. I've given my feedback. I've used my coupon. Now, with the exception of the forums, I'm staying off of the website. Too frustrating.

I'm not able to use my favorite feature on the new site - the ability to see which items are moving out of pre-pub in the next 2 weeks. It took me 2 clicks on the old site and now I can't find the feature on the new.

Thanks! Is there any way to get hold of my old wish list, so that I can reconstruct it?

It's a bug they're working on right now.

my wish list seems to be intact on classic.logos.  The items that i purchased on the new website are grayed out and the one's that i moved into the cart to see if they had a discount but didn't are still there.  (on the classic page, click on your name at the top right corner then select Wishlist).

But now when I try to see which prepubs are going live this week on classic, it throws me back to the new site which is USELESS!

Actually, it looks like my old wish list has been restored on the new web site also.

I'm sure there are a lot of logos.com references on the classic site which inadvertently get you to the new site.

God bless them for the unimaginable work of maintaining two sites, so customers would still have access to the old site. Any other business would have probably shut down the old one.
