ALL 5 of the new shopping links at the top right end of the main page link to Rockler? Having clicked them all, I’ll probably never try again. Why not just post a descriptive link to the retailer, whichever one it was, if desired? I suspect tricking the user is probably not that good of an idea…

Thanks for feedback Bill. There was no intention to trick anybody. I just added Shop @ Rockler to the red label.

Well, I know you don’t need to please me, but FWIW, I think the “shop@Rockler” label makes the link much better. I always prefer clarity over vagueness, and the former version I considered downright deceptive! : )
It’s satisfying to see that my small comments created change!

I dunno, I was shopping Rockler last night through those same links. They didn’t bother me a bit ~shrug~

Abbott, When I click on a link, I like to know what I’m getting. I like Rockler, I just don’t like “mystery” links anymore than I like pop-ups. YMMV.

Have your say...
