Ciao Michelangelo,
first of all thanks for the update!
I just switched to the new UI and I noticed an issue. I can not access the settings menu from my laptop. The icon seems to have disappeared.
On my mobile (iPhone IOS 12) everything works fine and settings menu is accessible.
On my iPad (iOS 13 beta) icon is also missing.

Here is a screenshot:

Thanks!

I have settings now in menu on left. I do not know is it scrollable? I don't have so many plugins installed.

Volumio3 Experimental UI Feedback Thread

First, I want to thank you for Volumio and MyVolumio, I've been using it for some months on Raspberry Pi3 and now 4, and it's really good.

Now, regarding Volumio3:
1. the "old" play screen with the two circles are a "brand image" for me, and love it. It sets Volumio apart from every other player;
2. It's true that the new Volumio3 play bar in the bottom is pratical and works well, keeping the controls and info across all screens;
3. The player screen on Volumio3 repeats some info in the bottom bar and on the main area of the screen; This leads to confusing and "bad design" in the play screen;
4. Why not keep the bottom bar in all screens EXCEPT on the play screen, where the "old" and "true" Volumio look and feel could be the only interface, hiding the bottom bar player?

Apart from that, there are some minor issues that I'm sure will be taken care of in future updates. I like the left menu bar and the settings menu (would like to have the back button always present in the top of the screen so not to have to scroll all the way up everytime).

Hi;

I have just enabled it and main menu scrolling works only on Edge - no Firefox, no Safari, no IE, only Edge
So - "Settings", with my screen resolution, is available only on Edge...

Regards

There are two "Help": one on the left menu bar, another on the Settings menu.

On the Settings menu, "Help" opens the Volumio Documentation page. On the left menu bar, "Help" is dead.

And I would like to have the "Shutdown" button on the main menu. I could leave Raspberry Pi3 on for days without a worry, so not having a easy access "Shutdown" button was ok. But Raspberry Pi4 really gets hot and I prefer do shut it down at night and when I'm out for several hours, so a more direct button would be nice.

Regarding the bottom bar player, I don´t have the progress and volume bars on iPhone and Android tablet. So there is no way to change the volume or to skip to a certain part of a track (or am I missing something?).
On a PC browser all is well.

The Main Menu should have a scroll bar. With my screen settings, in Chrome, I don't see the last lines.

As far as I know circular controls are nothing special to Volumio. I know that Runeaudio and moOde also are using circular controls. Volumio green color is more distinct to Volumio than controls. There is nothing wrong with circular controls :)

I discovered one visual glitch: When viewing track context menu of single track album, then pop-up menu opens to wrong direction and some menu items are not visible. Example screenshot from volumio offical app.

Probably some problem with z-index or margins.

Hi,

I am controlling the Volumio mainly via my TV's web browser and the new UI doesn't work in it. I have had no issues with the current UI with controls and views. In the new UI none of the buttons on the left side is not working (nothing happens when selecting something from the menu) and the Album Art is not visible on the background, also the controls like volume is missing. I have reset the browser/cleared the cache.

Also, I'd like to see the Album Art much bigger with less of controls, buttons and menus etc. Could there be a possibility for a separate view/window which shows the Album Art "full" depending on the screen/monitor/resolution with much less of information displayed at the same time, just to display the Album Art only, and nothing else.

If I change the browser view size on my browser, everything including the Album Art is bigger, and when using the Volumio3 UI, the menu on the left size goes broken. The last items in the menu goes hidden.
