ActiveRain Navigational Issues....is it just me?

Pie Chart Puzzle

I admit that I have not been on ActiveRain as much as I would like lately but I thought I was up to speed on all of the changes.  However, there are some issues that I have and I am wondering if everyone is having them as well so here is my list:

  1. When I am on my Home Page I can not click back to the AR home page
  2. The drop down menus go behind the advertising so I can not click on states etc.
  3. When I am on another member's home page or blog I can not click back to my own home page or to "blogs" or "groups" or even "search" even though the titles are there the links don't work.

I am finding it very hard to navigate through this and read posts the way I used to.  Is this something that is in the works or are these permanent changes?  Very frustrating!

Okay, I just posted this and wanted to click back using "My Home" and that link does not work but I can use the links below the tool bar...what's up with the tool bar???

Diane, I've been having the same problems and thought my laptop was messed up.  How annoying this is, hope it gets resolved soon! Happy new year and happy blogging!

I have had the same problems, as well. I am getting around OK, but feel as if I have AR 'crutches" AKA

Yes, that's been happening ever since they put that little red tag on your home page with the points, and now their advertisement for the new blog pay site.  I'm hoping it will be resolved soon. Many people have been complaining about it. Try emailing Brad or Jeff directly

Diane, for me many of the hyperlinks are MISSING behind the words at the top of the page. Where did they go? Some of the earlier working navigational words don't apparently work right now. I assume it be fixed eventually.

I have noticed the same things. I can't see my state behind the ads so I have to go to a state I can click on to get there. Sometimes I just have to open the  window again as I can't go back to the Home page. Very Frustrating.

Your right, I can't navigate back like I used too.  Noticed it this week just BEFORE the new blog thing was introduced.  You have to use the back arrow to read another post!  Have to be flexible ya know!

I'm sure when the guys get settled back in from Inman NYC we will have some answers/changes! I tweet more now so don't get too frustrated here.

Thanks guys, I'm glad I'm not alone.  I just Twittered Brad about it....figured that's the best way to reach him:) I'll let you know if I hear anything!

I still trying to figure out how to blog without the pay portion. I see the same things as you are.

Diane - nope you are not nuts, I am having the same issues, as others clearly are too. Many of the link at the top nav bar (in people's blog headers) are not working either, and it seems to vary from blog to blog. Tweeting the AR dudes is probably the best approach, as you did. Hopefully a fix soon.

Diane, I am having the same issues....so I have to keep backing up to get where I want to go :(  I'm sorry this was changed and hope it's just temporary.

Since the "boys" are back from NYC... maybe they could look into this?  It STINKS!

Diane, It's all part of upgrading new items into the Rain.  Seems everytim they upgrade something, they screw up the working tools we have come to love and need.  Eventually they will get things back to normal, I hope.  Just in time for another upgrade.  LOL.

 hi Diane, I thought it was my PC and then finally realized it's just another Rain glitch. My group has been messed up for almost a month now, learning to navigate around it as best I can, still a pain tho. Nite!
