Hey Thomas


Thank you for your reply.

i sadly just found this threat:

it is very sad to be honest.. i would love to use confluence..  but with the old look it would be a pain for me.

I haven't read this, thank you @Zeekra for pointing me to this answer. But this also is no "official" statement, I think. Sooner or later, the new design will come to server also, for that I'm quite sure.

But I wouldn't say, that the "old" look is a pain. There are other threads here that say the other way round. I think that neither the old one nor the new one is painful, they are different and you have to get used to them. Give it a try.

Both looks have strengths and weaknesses.

My gripe with the new style is that although I find it more slick in general, and would be perfectly happy with most of it, the loss of the page tree in most places is a disaster for navigation.
