    Your site on mobile (iPhone XR using Safari) and every other mobile device seems to redirect to malware and weird ads at random articles

    • Back Button

      You should have some way to get back to the main page without using the back button in a web browser. Currently when you do so it takes you back to the top of the main page as opposed to the page on which you clicked on an article.

        Thanks for the example. There is an old but still valid web development tenet that says “don’t break the back button”. We try to stick to best practices like this when we can in an effort to provide consistency across browsers. For a while, browser vendors were handling back button clicks differently. However, they’ve come back to a more common way in recent years. If you scroll down our home page or another page that lists our posts and then click the browser back button in Chrome, Firefox or Safari, you will go back to the same place you were (for the most part). This may not be the case when large ads are running at the top of the screen. We’ll continue to investigate different scenarios and possible solutions. We really appreciate your feedback.

        • The autoscrolling main stories need a pause button.

          The main stores autoscroll so fast, and have no pause button, I feel like I am wrestling with the scroll arrows just to try and ready the one line headline in time before it disappears. This actually causes me stress every time I visit the site and therefore makes for an unpleasant experience. I visit no other website that has a fast, autoscrolling lead story slideshow like that. Please provide a pause button, or stop it from autoscrolling.

            • Safari not always loading site

              On iOS using Safari, I’m finding that when I am connected to wifi, autoblog isn’t always loading. It tries for a few seconds and then gives up saying it can’t be loaded. If I disconnect from wifi, then it will load over LTE without issue. I have tried it in several places (home, work, friend’s house, etc) and just upgraded to a new iPhone and still have the same issue. It isn’t every time, but probably 40-50% of the time. Over LTE I haven’t experienced this issue.

              • Car Finder - Broken Options

                When using the Car Finder the Hauling Capacity option returns vehicles under 6K lbs. Many vehicles had specs listing 3,500-5000 lbs. Hovering over Hauling Capacity clearly states "Includes vehicles with a towing capacity of at least 6K lbs."

                  Thanks for your feedback. We downward adjusted the specs for hauling due to the fact that, when combined with other popular lifestyle options, there were typically no results. We neglected to adjust the text at that time. We are going to review the Hauling Capacity option and make necessary changes.

                • Let people copy and paste -

                  So, I typed "best cars under $10000" or something like that into google, and got many results, of which I decided the first 30 would give me a pretty good idea of what used cars under $10,000 to consider, and then I build a good top ten list. Anyway, your website was on the list. With other websites, I was able to highlight something on a webpage and copy it into a notepad or Word document. But with your website, it doesn't let you left click any where. Left click lets you swipe. So, you didn't make my top 10…

                    I see what you mean. The reason is that our list is a slideshow and the text is part of the slide’s control area. I have a trick for you. Below the slide is a group of social share buttons (Facebook, Twitter, ect.) Right below that is a button that says “List”. If you click that, the layout will change from a slideshow to a post. You should then be able to highlight, copy and paste. I’ll ask our engineers to look into adjusting the slideshow view for the future.
