I think MsDebbie needs to fire the present tech team, and find another to reestablish this web site, i.e., back button doesn’t work – as we must click on the forum button to use as a back button, ads infiltrating each space block in the comment sections, etc, etc, etc.

There seems to be several issues going on right now. Daily Top 15 is missing as well. I guess they are working on it.

I’m thinking it may be a tougher nut that it seems. I’ve seen the complaints / rants / hissyfits over the lack of back button functionality for several days now; no first-hand problem with said button for me on either of two Windows 7 systems (IE and Firefox), an iPad or a Macbook (Safari).

I’m thinking it’ll be fixed sooner rather than later, but who knows? Remember too, it could be much worse. I’ll handle lack of top three to get the info and contacts provided free here on LJs…

EDIT: JayT posted this on another thread re: back buttons:

—————————————-

LJ’s had the back arrow problem before—it had to do with how doubleclick.net puts the ads on the page. Easiest way to fix it if you are using IE is to go to Settings, Internet options and then the Security tab. Click on Restricted Sites and then the Sites button. In the “Add this website …” line put in:

*.doubleclick.net

Just like that, including the asterisk, and click the Add button. Reload the LJ homepage and the back button should function correctly after that.

For Chrome, I just use Adblock and that takes care of a bunch of annoyances.

Not sure on other browsers, maybe one of the many computer guru LJ’s will chime in.

My back button works fine it’s all those D$%# HomeDepot ads all over the page that bugs me. They are very annoying.

It looks like you can get Adblock Plus from Home Depot.

I can’t post any projects using my I pad. Ms Deb has been very kind and responded to my request. The people who are working on the fix have never contacted me its been 3 Weeks and not a word. Maybe they are to busy loading our sight with all the ads.

All you’ve done lately is complain about the ads. It’s a free site and the owners need to make money from it somehow. My advice was to block em. Any good ad blocker will. If you really don’t like the site, don’t let the door hit you.

The ads I don’t have a dispute with, that’s how this site stays in business. The back button is my primary complaint. When I click on the forum tab to go to someone’s thread I find interesting, I can’t back out of it without going back and clicking on the forum tab. ? This is the only web site I have any of those mentioned problems with.

Smitty: I have Windows 7 and IE – no Firefox or MacAfee, as they are incompatible with Microsoft security systems. I will try the JayT solution.

Smitty: Microsoft does not recommend, as it is an unsecure site.

Everybody: Clicked on speed guide web site, copied for info, did not install. Used back button to return here. Still does not work this site.

@kdc68,
yes the same thing here, no update in 3 days.

@ the back button affected users
The back button works fine with Firefox. It seems to be an issue with IE and Windows users. I use Linux so I am not affected with that.
Considering the ads, Adblock does an excellent job.

@the permanent whiners
Considering that some users might have some spyware as the source of their permanent complaints, maybe it’s time to either fix the computer, change OS or stop visiting the site or offer a better solution. Considering that Linux is not affected with *wares things, I am an happy user.

Thank you for all the positive people that feed this site with projects, tips, help and support.

lepelerin...thanks for the confirmation and totally agree with your ending statement. Too bad that LJ’s has encountered so many problems as of late. Hope to see it all corrected soon
