Dear forum members,

As some of you may have seen from our emails, next week we are relaunching Hitched. This will include a major upgrade to the Forums, which we expect to be live from Tuesday afternoon. Your login will still work and all your old posts will still be live, plus we've added features to upload and share your photos and videos.

A few things will change, though. You'll no longer be able to have custom signatures, so if you have one of these you won't see it after the change. We've also not managed to find a way to keep any posts you might have added to favourites. If you really need to keep these then we suggest saving these links as favourites in your internet browser before Tuesday 21st July.

We hope you like the new Hitched and the upgraded Forums.

If you experience any problems, please contact feedback[at]hitched.email

See you there!

Team Hitched

    Will this mean that the forum will finally be moderated and stop non fully paid up hitched suppliers from posting blatant adverts for their business within other posts and also police the rule that registered suppliers should not actually even start a post. Like this https://www.hitched.co.uk/chat/forums/thread/0-payment-plans-from-199-per-week-no-deposit-needed-no-credit-checks-549760/

    They are not even paid up official suppliers.

    Will official Hitched suppliers also lose their signatures.

    Hi both Thank you for your messages. Just to confirm that when we migrate to the new forums next week, the signatures will unfortunately go too. This feature doesn't exist on the new platform and we've focused our development effort elsewhere. Thanks, Hitched

    Dear Hitched

    Please answer the other questions re advertising etc.!

    I think most of us get fed up with the blatant flouting (and non-redress) of the rules by the same few time after time.

    Also, is anyone going to bother replying to my suggestions (made twice now on the feedback area of the site) about featuring differently-abled and older couples?

    Thanks in advance,

    Ali

    Hi Ali,

    Thanks for your message.

    The new platform we are moving to this week does not allow suppliers to use their business login to post in the forums, which means users won't see any advertising content.

    We're having trouble locating your other post - would you mind emailing us at editorial(at)hitched.email so we can look into this for you?

    Best wishes,

    Hitched

    Registered (paid up) suppliers to the Hitched directory do not have advertising content on their posts to the forum but we have a signature and an official badge to prove that we are accredited registered Hitched suppliers.

    AS such we are not supposed to post advertising or even start a post but we are allowed to post relevant replies to help Hitched Brides with their issues, having a hitched supplier and business signature lets hitched brides know that we are genuine and not the spammers that of late have been posting without any kind of admin Mod response.

    Seems like a down grade in quality to me.

    Hi Team Hitched,


    Since the new relaunch, I am unable to go onto the next page of wedding dresses. It doesn’t show the page number bar at the bottom so I can’t continue looking at wedding dresses as only the first page is shown. This is only the case on my iPhone where as on my laptop and iPad, I am able to go onto the next page. Is there a solution for this?
    Best Wishes, Emily

    Dear Hitched

    This it the type of post in the forums that are really concerning. Blatant advertising by people setting up accounts as individuals and promoting their businesses. No wonder your paid up businesses are so annoyed!

    I could go on...............................

    Hi Emily

    Sorry to hear that. I've just tested and it seems to be going to the next page now, has it started working for you again?

    Hi Sarah,


    Unfortunately it hasn’t started working. It allows me to move to the next page if I press on a specific designer but if I filter it to just ballgowns, for examples, it only shows me like 10 options. There are definitely more pages because I can access them on my iPad so I’m surprised it’s not working on my phone. I downloaded the app on my phone as well and it’s doing the same thing on there as well.

    Hi Sarah

    Please can you tell us where we should flag these posts up to? Perhaps a sticky thread at the top of the forum?

    It would be good to make sure that Hitched remains fair to all users!

    Cheers Ali

    Hi Ali

    There should be a small 'report' button on each post, so you can click that and then select the reason for reporting. Then we can make sure we remove anything that shouldn't be there.

    We'll be posting a little guide on how to use the forums very soon so bear with us!

    Thanks Ali

    Sarah
