Some functions that need fixing on this new site


While I assume Nathan has his hands full tweeking this "new look" DWT, here are a few things I have noticed that need fixing:

Products - Cant locate without major sleauthing a few earlier products by Columbia. I tried to post a review but got some sort of error pop up all 3 times. Pity that Aaron posted these pproducts now nobody can find them

Tags - I mentioned this earlier. Difficulkt as hell to find anything when searching by tags now (It was working just fine a week ago) I also notice that every time you add a new topic the tag function will default certain words and tag them, BAD IDEA. Some of the words simply dont relate to use in a tag search - get rid of that.

Who is online - Still available in a roundabout way but certainly not as good as before.

Anyways this is a start guys, maybe you have some more and we can help Nathan with some of the things we see as important to fix, to make DWT right.

Yeah finally figured out how you found the product - not easy.

Then I tried once again to give a review for the 10 inch columbia fat boy. NO GO - It just wont allow me to. Shame cause it is a good product and deserves a good review.

The search feature is worse than it was before.

I also for some reason could not add an attachment until I made my post and then did it in an edit. Hope it was a glitch.
