The latest Challenge is Navigating Noonsite's New Platform

Why did it have to change? We now need a log in and password to access any info. In the middle of making plans for future destinations the formalities pages have gone missing. Perhaps in 3 weeks time it will be usable again they say. Who knows?

Might have something to do with monetizing the site. That may be coming.

Often the log in password is to keep bots etc. out, or at least try to, some get by anyway

Yes, that would make sense.
Also perhaps a higher authority wants to know who is it seeking information on travel to where, when and what for? Fair enough, after all the world order is very concerned on border security these days.

Re: The latest Challenge is Navigating Noonsite's New Platform

I just went to checkout this update. Had no problem going to Countries from the upper menu and going to Formalities (upper menu) without logging in. All the old info seemed to be there.

Re: The latest Challenge is Navigating Noonsite's New Platform

I need to spend more time in the site, but the info on the port I looked at yesterday seemed much more sparse than it used to be. I hope I'm wrong, because Noonsite was one of my primary planning sources.

The site is obviously having a make over.
The new platform provides casual information while in depth and discounts are available to those with accounts.
To open and account you need to provide your email address, so you can guess what this will bring to your inbox

What in depth info is missing? I just looked at the info I wanted for the Maldives: the over view and the Formailities.
Country list:
https://www.noonsite.com/Countries/
The Maldives:
https://www.noonsite.com/place/maldives/
Formalities:
https://www.noonsite.com/place/maldives/formalities/
Even the User comments are visible:
https://www.noonsite.com/place/maldi...user-comments/

So the only thing I see that requires logging in is to post a comment, which was the same on the old site.

Thatís why I maintain 2 email addresses. One stays relatively clean, the other is seldom looked at and collects most of the unwanted stuff.

Re: The latest Challenge is Navigating Noonsite's New Platform

Noonsite says they have migrated 90% of the info to the new platform. The rest will follow in a few weeks. They explain more here:

Re: The latest Challenge is Navigating Noonsite's New Platform

Lots of comments posted on the noonsite website. Lets hope they get it sorted asap so we can resume plans based on clearing in procedures (missing at the mo) for many countries.
