Works fine for me. I can use the backspace button, the back button on the browser, and I have one of my mouse buttons programmed to go back…all three ways working good for me.

I hope the top 15 on the main, front page returns soon – that was one of my favorite parts of the site.

I wouldn’t know about the back button issues, cause I am on dialup, and back buttons are a NO NO! Too damn much load time to reload anything. I use a right click an new tab on each post I read. Solves that problem, but I have noticed that the admins have loaded the site with a ton of junk garbage to track and advertise so much so that where typically a LJ page would load in a couple minutes before, it now takes on average 15 minutes for even the simplest page to load completely. Most never load completely, I have to terminate them as soon as the text becomes visible because a lot of these places timeout and hang, or worse cause a reset which kills and blanks the page. I am in the process of upgrading my old version of firefox so I can install blockers to terminate access to this crap being shoved down my throat.

I have been unable to see the top 15 all week. In fact that entire section only has a banner and that is it. So, I am completely missing the submissions. I am using Firefox version 26 on a linux machine.

I’ve been thinking I jacked up my comp somehow. I have to hit the back button 3-4 times and when viewing a project I have to refresh the page to change pics..

For me it only slow-loads early in the morning. But the Top 3 seems to be gone and the Top 15 is also missing, one of my favorites.
My banners are also not working, just white squares.

I also have to hit the back button 3-5 times to get to the previous page.

Is anybody listening and trying to fix this?

I’m not having ‘back’ button issues, but I am missing the Top 3 and the Top 15. I really do hope the administrators bring them back. Bring them back!

Instead of just complaining; has anyone tried to contact someone at LumberJocks? I emailed MsDebbie last week and she forwarded my email to the people that have some control over the website.

I’m guessing that the top 3 / 15 are missing due to the 2014 award feather they are working on but that’s just a guess.

Yep have to hit the back button multiple times. The home page only shows the latest blogs, no Top 3 or recent project submissions. Not seeing any ads though

Same problem here – have to hit the back arrow 3-5 times to get the page to move. Also, the site is almost non-functional early in the a.m. (5:00 a.m. CST). Love the site but have been avoiding it lately due to problems.

Well I am having the same back button issue on my pc at work and on my ipad as well as my laptop, so I really don’t think it’s my equipment.
This problem started for me about 2 weeks ago and it hasn’t improved.
Sure hope they get it fixed! I really like this site.

I really miss the Top 3. Its been one thing that brings me to the site daily. Makes one wonder why they would take it away, more room for advertisements I suppose. I don’t seem to have the back button issue.

LJ’s had the back arrow problem before—it had to do with how 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:


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.

Awesome JayT thanks. My back button works now I just have to figure out why I need to refresh before I can add favorites or use any other page function.

It looks like some things have reverted back to the problems of the past weekend.

The blogs and forum topics on the home page are again showing all the text and there is lots of blank space. Also, as Jeff mentions above, zooming on project photos is broken again.

I have the same issue with having to hit the back button multiple times. I researched this, its due to the banners which are also not displaying for me. I’m a director of a software development team e.g. its not my IE browser. The issue is also not unique to LJ’s its a known issue that’s been reported on other sites. This wasn’t an issue on LJ’s until recently.

I’m just not liking having to see the first post of each thread on the front page. It was fixed, and now it’s broken again?
