PCA links inconsistency

  Covergirl 23:13 02 Dec 2011

I notice that when you are in the forums, just below the menu bar (News Reviews How-to Forums), on certain forum index pages there are links to all the other forums, whereas on others, just your current location (e.g You are here>Homepage>Forums>Helproom)

The forums with ALL the links are Business, Speakers Corner, Mobile World and Windows8.

I find that having all the links available is more convenient.

Anyone else any preference?

I have not noticed that,Covergirl. I will look out for what you are talkin' about. I, invariably just use about 3 clicking points on the PCA website.

"Anyone else any preference?"

Yes, i preferred it when, after the change over, briefly they had a list of the 'FORUMS' at the bottom of the page. It was so convenient, to just drop to the bottom and click on a forum.

Graphicool1, they're still there aren't they? This is what I see under this reply box (it hasn't copied and pasted in quite the same layout - it's 3 lines on the actual webpage):

"Check out PC Advisor's other tech forums

Thanks for pointing out the inconsistency. We'll get that fixed.

Links to all forums hasn't changed - should be on all forum pages.

Cheers, Simon

Whilst we are on this subject I fairly regularly click on the "Last Response" time and get a thread with only the initial posting as opposed to the last page of postings.

I've never experienced your 'last response'problem, and I've just been trying to make it happen, but can't.

Has anyone else had the same problem as bremner?

  lotvic 10:43 04 Dec 2011

Yes, same as bremner but not for couple of weeks. It seems ok for me at the moment.

I usually access the site form an iPad, this may be significant I don't know. I am currently on my iMac but I have just clicked on the Last Response for this thread on my iPad and got only the initial post as I have previously described.

Thinking it might be an iPad thing I tried it on my iPad, and I didn't get the same as you - I got what I should have seen - the last page of the thread.

I then tried it in Safari on my PC, and again, everything worked perfectly. I haven't seen any other reports like yours, so perhaps the problem lies at your end?

This thread is now locked and can not be replied to.
