Settings -> Plugins is missing the back button.

It's available in all other settings screens and If I enter the settings of an installed plugin, the back button is again present.

great work!

1. Please ensure to test on the Pi 7" Display and now it looks awful now.

* feedback below is for the 7" display *

2. Ensure to give prominence to power off button in the main interface, it this is one of the most used buttons. UX is bad when you have to drill down menus.
3. Album art should be bigger
4. Inner navigation the lower play stats take way too much screen real-estate as well as the top bar


I'm more than happy to test and give feedback needed.

This may be Radio Paradise issues and not Volumio 3 UI:

Having Volumio app on a tablet and also on the PC browser both open, if I open and edit the Radio Paradise settings on one device, the "Configuration saved successfully" dialog opens on both devices and need to be closed on both devices.

On Radio Paradise if I open the "..." menu and click on "Go to artist" or "Go to album", the album art and artist, álbum and track names disapear. The only way to get them back seams to be chosing some other source and then go back to Radio Paradise.

firstly well done for the hard work.

The interface on a mobile device is much improved and formats nicely, having large album art looks good in portrait. I have a 4" touchscreen on my case and landscape formatting is not as good. The album art is too small with large areas of empty space. The landscape mobile formatting needs revising.

On my laptop the side bar does not show all menu items and is missing a scroll bar.

I noted quite a few people commented they liked volumios current style with the big dials. Personally i never use the dials so they are just clutter for me. I like a minimal look with maximized cover art with forward/ back buttons similar to logitech squeezebox I would make the point that you will never get a UI that everyone likes so maybe make it customizable so that you have a number of skins?

Keep up good work

I have my own 4" touchscreen on my case and the mobile

Volumio3 Experimental UI Feedback Thread

I have to admit I find it difficult to find my way round the 'workflow' of the new UI. Example: I start Volumio on a mobile and I have the last track played, and useful controls (scroll bar, back/forward, etc. I choose to check whether the new CDs I just added have gone onto the Volumio library and select the cog icon. The Settings menu appears, and I select My Music. I check what's going on and want to return to the first screen; unsure as to what gets me back, I select the ♪ icon, and now I'm in a closed loop. Nothing I select gets me out of the 'innards' area; the 'home' symbol just takes me back to that area, not the outside of Volumio. Yes, I still have the miniplayer controls, but I would like to get back to the top/outside of Volumio.

It could be that I'm so used to the old way of doing things that I can't make sense of the new one, but there's some standard heuristics missing. Don't get me wrong, this is a good step forward but it seems unfinished.

I would like to thank you for the good work and for being forward thinking, and I like the new UI. I mainly run it on a tablet, and have found no problems in navigating my way around; I have found however that whether it is in landscape or portrait view does change how much is seen from the main menu, and I don't know if this is fixable, maybe with a scrollbar as has already been suggested.. A feature I like and which I don't know if it's intentional is that a 'swipe down' refresh presents me with the nice 'now playing' view screen with the album art. What I would like though is for the playback resolution info to be displayed somewhere as I'm that sort of guy with that sort of system, and unless I've changed the id tags for the album name to reflect this sometimes I don't know what it is.. also nice to have for internet radio playback. Many thanks again and Ciao!

..... Just did some more fiddling and really the menu etc is only properly visible and easily usable in landscape, and the 'now playing' screen that I'm seeing looks like it is in fact the round controls screen but with only the central bit visible in portrait. I'm running Chrome on a Samsung tablet. Cheers/Ciao!
... And the res info is in fact visible in landscape so it's all a landscape/portrait issue for me .. really nice in fact in landscape including with the old style dials 'swipe' option.. Cheers/Ciao!

Although it is not as clean as the previous, it is still very nice upgrade from the previous one. Thanks for the development.

One thing. Is there any fast way to turn off the system? As I use mobile phone for controlling the system, I have to first click two times, scroll down and again click two times.

Thanks

Is there a way to get to the 'settings' via the WebUI? I cannot find a way t navigate to a place where I can add/edit my NAS settings, nor to check for updates. Perhaps I'm just not finding it.

Also, is there a github project for this new UI?

It should be on the left pane, bellow the music sources. Try reducing the zoom on your browser.
