The reason for the mis

The reason for the mis-directs is that someone f****d up the web site when they tried to "improve it"!  Now it is just a real mess.

If it were up to me I would just revert back to the original website whilst kicking the arse of whoever was responsible for this pig's breakfast.

Apologies, there's a broken

Apologies, there's a broken link on headphones, part of the breadcrumb is missing, I'll have to get the dev team to fix this next week. In the meantime, please just log in via www.whathifi.com/forum.

Suddenly, since the launch of the new site all these new so-called members (all experts in web design apparently) sharing their *ahem* wisdom.  Aggressive

Not an expert...

You may or may not have been referring to me but as a new but probably "not going to be hanging around for long" member I have to state quite clearly that all of my working life has been in IT and, whereas I know next to nowt about hifi, I reckon I do know a fair bit about IT and website design, enough to make me an expert in that field.

It really is time to immediately return to the old website and to get this new one fixed before re-launchng it. And, sorry to disabuse you, it is not just simply a case of a broken link from the 'Headphones' tab. Searches from Google for (e.g.) forums on the What Hifi website that used to work now seem to link to this forum only. The new site is a complete mess.

Yes, you and others who've

Yes, you and others who've only got no more than 3 posts to your name.

If you're that much of an expert then add constructive criticism rather than "that someone f****d up the web site". That helps no-one.

WHFI has invested a lot of money so it's unlikely they'll revert back. 

And no, I'm not employed by Haymarket nor do I have any affiliation with the company.

Actually, at the time of your posting the above reply I had four posts.

I did offer constructive criticism - revert back.

Then they should be kicking some supplier arses pretty hard.

Speaking as the recently retired Head of IT for a very large insurance company, if one of my staff teams had created this mess they would know about it in no uncertain terms and would be under direction to get it fixed pronto. And as the man responsible for corprate IT I would be a little bit nervous about my own position for allowing something to be rolled out that was both inadequately tested and without, apparently, having a roll back plan in the event of problems.

"Complete mess* 

Technical term there?  I've been using the site since the switch over and find this forum less frustrating than the old one.

There's a few bugs needing ironed out but that should not be a huge deal for any reasonable human being.

Well you guys are the hifi

Well you guys are the hifi experts so I'll make just one more comment then disappear from your world. Thanks, by the way, for the advice provided on the forum where I posted my original (hifi related) question.

Now, instead of going directly to your favourite forum here to have a discussion with others, try going first to Google and putting into the Google search box "What hifi 'forum name'" (i.e. the forum name of your choice).

Guess what? It is highly likely that you will end up here.

So, like I said, not just the odd broken link. Just a mess.

Your new website should be a joy to use. Maybe when it has been fixed it will be.
