    It launched on the 27th. As I was forced to change the password when I logged in that day from the previous. Otherwise you couldn't log in.

    Please like a few have said implement a "Only show in stock items" this is one thing that annoys me soo much on the current site.

    Scrolling through pages of out of stock items is awful for the user experience.

    Did it just randomly redirect you then?

    Unless I navigate via the link in this thread, I still get served up the old site.

    Yeah, I was in my basket that day and then it changed with the purple banner at the top telling you to reset the password. After 5 minutes adding stuff to the basket it logged me out. Could no longer log in unless you changed the password.

    Unless your device is using the old cache or dns hasn't updated. The same thing happened on the iPad. It never updated on the tablet until a few days ago.

    People might encounter no free shipping upon the transition with their linked accounts. I found I had to remove an item from the basket then re-add it for it to update.

    I no longer see the old site from that day.

    It'll never happen. People have been asking for that, and other little tweaks, for ages but customer feedback doesn't seem to be a strongpoint these days.

    Has anyone else had the issue of changing password on the shop site and having to use the old password for the forums? I've changed the shop password as advised but still have to use old password for forum. (Not that I'm a prolific poster. lol)

    Forum has always had it's own login separate to the store / site.

    me neither, the compulsory password reset loop confused me. I tried to login and it just failed. I had my password manager fill the form out so I knew it was right

    You're looking at a different website, that's why.

    The 'new' site is on store.overclockers.co.uk, the old one is on overclockers.co.uk.

    I've still not had any kind of auto-redirect to the new site, on any of my devices and can only access it from links within this thread, not 100% convinced it's 'officially' launched yet really :p

    Edit -
    It was @Gibbo who posted the link in the Crucial deal thread, perhaps he can shed some light on whether it's meant to be public yet?

    Should roll back to the OG site from years back, so much easier to navigate.
