How to Get Away from Default Next?

Post by Roy » Tue May 09, 2017 12:12 pm

Today I keep getting IMVU Next as my default. I think it was a cookie that redirected you to Next? Could someone give me the rundown on how to set Regular IMVU as default?

I can not really access anything I need through IMVU Next so having that set as default does not make sense to me.

My friend is saying she can not access the website unless she downloads an app for it?

I am sure she is not on some fakey site...she is (hopefully) smarter than that...I am wondering if anyone else has this?

Edit:

She means this:

There is no "IMVU Classic" button anymore.

@Roy - It is the latest annoyance and though not seen at first, it is there... just more hidden in my opinion.

When clicking on the avi circle in Next, this is what is seen:

Image

Hover your mouse over the pop up, and a very light grey scroll bar will appear:

Image

Click on the scroll bar and scroll down and then one can see the “IMVU Classic Website” link:

Image

That being said… I have had the same bookmark that Gaff posted there for awhile as the darn thing keeps defaulting to Next to me if I don’t. I think more so for many today as any time them mess with things there, seems to be a LOT of folks having things defaulting to Next for them.

Hm, neither her or I can get the scroll bar to appear.

I guess it is a glitch.

That is odd - I am testing on windows 10 atm on 4 alts on Chrome, Firefox, IE, and Edge and also tested on all but edge on 3 alts on Firefox, IE, and Chrome on Win 7 [All PCS]. I have seen Firefox takes a bit longer for the bar to show and need to hover a bit loner for that. The bar is VERY easy for me to miss. What browser, OS (and version) and devices are you both using there, Roy?

I have had this bookmark on my bar for years. I never had an issue staying clear and far away from Next myself by using it. Have you tried this link? It should load you directly to classic no matter what.

I have also had that link available to me for a very long time, but I still get redirected to Next. I almost couldn't figure out how to get back to the regular website yesterday because of the sneaky way they've hidden the link with an unnecessary scrollbar. I see you IMVU, I know what you're doing and it won't work.

Why are they pushing Next so hard? It doesn't even have a fraction of the basic necessary functions a user needs in a website. You can't edit your profile card, your homepage, or your badges. You can't visit the shop and look at individual creators/items, or find a product's derive button.

The whole thing is one big hot mess waiting to happen, and though I don't want to believe it, all the evidence seems to say they are ham fistedly going forward with this inevitable switch from client to browser. And I won't want to be around for the resulting chaos.

Like Manda, I have had the link to the website bookmarked as to steer clear away from Next. Anytime I need to go to the website I click on that bookmark, even when I clear my history.

Daphne, try bookmarking the classic website and only click on that bookmark when you want to go to the website. As I said, I always use bookmark to log onto the site.
