Redesign Issues

Here's a few:

• the Last Post link at the top of the page is not acutally a link. It looks like one, but there seems to be no action associated with it. (Edit: I checked the source code of that section, and there is code for a link, but that's not how it's playing on the rendered page; I'm guessing something runs afoul prior to those lines, which leaves this section's code invalid.)

• Cookies don't seem to be working properly. It seems like I have to log on to the site every time I visit it, but even then, it's not clear if I'm logged in or not. Here's an example. When I first hit the site this morning, there was a message that I had a message; I clicked the link and was taken to the message. I typed my response and then hit Send Message, which took me to a login screen. I logged in at that point (didn't we used to have a "Remember Me" checkbox?), and was then taken to the home page, but the response to the message that I had typed was gone.

• It's a small thing, but the Preview function for posts doesn't render/display in the same way as the actual post; the subject line is regular text, as opposed to the fancy style that I've quickly become a fan of.

And here's my system info if the techies ask: Firefox 14.0.1 running on Kubuntu 12.04.1 LTS. Thanks.

pages not loading, taking forever to load...

...and any guesses why the only image available on the show description pages is one of the Summer Tour 1995 poster? Seems like they're just putting lipstick on the pig with the recent changes. Not really fixing the underlying problems, just fancying it up a little...might as well (I guess).

the way I got around this when it happened to me yesterday

was that I fired up a different browser, went to dead.net and logged in, logged out, copied the url of the login page, and pasted it into the original browser. Worked like a champ and I haven't had the issue since. Whether it will work for you I dunno, but I've also asked the tech guys if they have more reliable info than my blundering around.

whoa!

Okay, that's pretty surreal. I'll pass this on. We thought we had the login issue fixed, but clearly not for everybody!

New ones coming as the old ones go

Thanks for the track tip, wilfredtjones; I was getting tired of scrolling through the whole list to find my stuff. But here's a new problem for you, marye: when I click on My Account at the top of the page, it takes me to a search page. I need to click on my name in a post to get to my account.

I've reported the Recent Posts issue

WRT the Rolling Stones vine, I'm going to have to restart it from scratch due to convoluted issues. The people who have signed up for it will probably have to reconfigure the list.

re: My Recent Posts

Can't you equal the same effect by going to 'My Account', then 'Track'?

My Recent Posts

I'd second that emotion

Ch-ch-ch-changes

The redesign will grow on me eventually, but I'd still like to see the return of My Recent Posts.
