Stiritup is asking: (1 answer)
Is anyone else having problems trying to see full reviews on this site? I've looked at several recipes tonight and wanted to read reviews on them, but when I click on "see full review" under the partial comments or on "read reviews" near the top of the page I get nothing. Nothing happens. Is it my computer or is this happening to others?

I just pulled up a couple recipes and was able to click on see full review to have the review open up fine . . . Could be worse, you could be banished to AR Argentina (=

Thanks, I guess. ? I was hoping for the problem to be with this site. It's too late to deal with this headache tonight!

I have had problems with viewing both reviews and photos in the new format. In one browser, I can't get the scrolling photo window without turning off the built-in popup blocker (not adblocker), I get the old format of ten photos per screen(usually not in date order any more) However, the reviews work fine. In the other browser, I get a multitude of results. The scrolling photo window comes up with the popup blocker on but I can't scroll through. I do get the old format screen if I click on the total number there too. Oddly enough, if I turn off my adblocker I stop getting the photo popup with the scroll feature and go directly to the old format photo view so still not able to use the scroll feature. The reviews only work if I jump through hoops or turn off my adblocker. THat all being said, this has been happening for a couple of months, after one of the maintenance updates, but somewhere about two weeks ago it all started working correctly. That only lasted about a week and back to the original problems.

My point was really that I think some computer settings are contributing to the problem, but I still believe there is a problem with AR. I don't think they seem able to "write the code" in a way to work with all the different browsers, apps, devices, etc. and I'm a little tired of sending "issues" to them so I just figure out how to deal with it or go to other sources. I don't intend to let one site rule how I manage my computer, but that's me.

I haven't been able to read reviews either for a while now... so NOPE, not just you.

Thanks for your input guys. I spent a little time on this websites customer support/technical questions without any positive results. It says to: (a) Check that you make sure you are using one of the supported browsers...I am (b) To enable JavaScript...I followed directions to find that it was already enabled (c) check to make sure that cookies were enabled... they were. I stopped short of e-mailing customer support until I could check your responses to my question this morning. I don't want to start disabling or turning off popup blocker or anything so I guess I'll contact them about the problem :-/
