  1. 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.

      • Please don't nag about AdBlock Plus

        AdBlock Plus already has a whitelist for non-annoying ads. Please make your ads conform, and they won't be blocked. Simple, and everyone wins. I won't be annoyed by either crazy ads or your nagging, and you'll win by Ads gettings to consumers.

        • Fix the broken full-screen aspect ratio

          Full-screen is messed up if you're using a monitor with a 16x10 resolution. Please fix this. I love looking at your photos, but can't do it when the full-screen aspect ration is so corrupted. Come on... this really shouldn't be a difficult thing to figure out.

            • Gallery does resize properly in iOS

              Images in the gallery are distorted and the aspect ratio incorrect on all iOS devices. Super buggy and unusable.

                  • Stop intrusive malware and redirect ads!

                    Looks like you have at least one rogue ad that is auto redirecting mobile visitors to a malware site. I tested it and it showed up repeatedly on this page: https://www.autoblog.com/2018/11/30/gm-ceo-mary-barra-washington-lawmakers/

                      Please allow for the people to actively ignore other members. For the love of god... please. If I have to see another childishly bold comment from The Car Expert (sic), I'm going to lose it.

                        • 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.
