BTW, I'm not a big fan of the new format. I think it's because of the size of the font. It used to be smaller. Perhaps some control over that? Being a web developer for 25 years (yes, back when it was new! and improved! with more whitening power!
), I realize how much work goes into these things, so it's not a big deal for me.
That was indeed VERY helpful advice. I haven't changed my settings in 11 years since joining - probabaly not even back then. The defaults were always "wisely" sufficient.
However, TWO more bugs showed up, now.
(1) Hasn't been a problem for me, but the page now wants me, ... after more than a decade of it not being an issue ... to use ONLY INTEGERS for my address's ZIP code. Is this website ONLY for USA members?
I could request, but I'm sure the Canadian Parliament would decline my asking for a change of my ZIP code to suite AstroMart's web design, demands for an INTEGER format.
(2) I changed the SETTINGS for Classified ad pages to show 40 listings. Yes, I know, that was greedy of me, but if you don't ask, you don't get. So, apparently, the web designer limits the list to just 15 ads - the rest is needed for totally blank space,... perhaps for "reflection" on the quality of the layout.
Possibly, a more efficient page layout would be to have a button to view the sponsors, leaving the rest of the "non-scroll-bar page left for the important stuff - like people's ads.
Or, you could even have a (small) scrolling "corporate" sponsor list BOX. That would probabaly be more noticeable than the dead column at right, likely most of us appreciate, but ignore. How about, a "right side, column HIDE/CLOSE arrow - after we notice the overpowering list of sponsor names. Then the page wouldn't need a horizontal scroll bar, to waste our time.
Sure am glad the new web page wasn't released on Easter Sunday - April 1st.
Bring back the CLASSIC A-M Page.
