Why would a person or group of people ever create a site as difficult to navigate as this one? I swear guys, this is ridiculous.

I have seen far more difficult sites to navigate. This one is cake.

What seems to be the problem? I've been here since 2006 and never had any problem. What browser are you using??

If you're talking about the forums, the vbulletin software is licensed and a lot of people happily pay for it, because it's great. It's very customizable and it's not difficult to read, reply to, or create posts. I'm not really sure how anyone could have trouble with the forums.

If you're talking about the rest of azbilliards (a lot of us forget there is a rest-of-azb)... it's a little busy but I can see the navigation stuff at the top pretty clearly.

What were you looking for that you had trouble finding?

I am also curious what difficulty you are having. I have never had an issue.......

vbulletin is the nuts! Try some of the others like drupal, etc. and see how much you like it.

I guess I just don't understand why there are not more "to do this" type of links or whatever you call them. I am trying to find past threads started by a certain user. I have found this feature before but now after trying what seems like everything I can't. I don't think what I am trying to do is difficult and it should be obvious how. Trying to figure this out shouldn't be a part of doing it.

Yes I posted this. Posting stuff on this site is easy, so what. You shouldn't have to figure things out, it should be easy.

My point exactly. Why is this one difficult at all?

IIRC to find past threads started by a certain user: go to community above, select members list, search for the particular user, go to their profile and then look up what you wanted.

Click on Search/Advanced Search.
Option to find posts by User name.
You have to logged in to use the Advanced Search feature.

Go to the members proflie page, select statistics, and then select find all threads started by that member. I think you can access the last 1000 threads they posted.

Thank you. The "select statistics " was the thing that was missing. That's what I mean, how would I know to look under that?

I think what the OP is trying to say, is that the Help features of the site are lacking. In other words, where would one go to find out how to do things like find past threads started by a certain user.

A few help pages, links, or instructional threads would go a long way to making the site easier to navigate and find what you want. Especially to those new to forums and/or the vBulletin software.

Go to the tabs below the masthead and click on FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions). It tells you how to search for posts by user name and many other things. All forums have a FAQ and that's the place to start. The one on this forum is better than most.

I also agree putting "find all posts by _____" could be easier to find. It took me a minute to find it under statistics also.

And searching for users is tedious too. I should be able to go to the search box, type in a username (without any particular search term) and it brings up that username as a result or a list of similar users.

Last gripe: the search has had a bug forever, and I don't know if it'll ever be fixed... but if you search for multiple terms, the results for a logged-in user are different (and worse) than the results for a logged-out user.

By clicking on it and finding out what happends Einsten. It aint rocket science.

What are tabs and what is the masthead? Turn left at the 3rd tree on the right after the fourth streetlight past the bent stop sign just before the Sizzler. If you pass the Sizzler you have to take a left at the next light then make a U turn at the next light then get in the middle lane and stay there for 769 feet and then merge into the right lane and slow to 24 mph but not until you pass over the train tracks. After lifting your feet while going over the tracks there will be a sharp turn to the left and that is where you make a right into the Sizzler.

The top of the page Bumpy. There are tabs that will link you to different areas of the site. The one that is labeled FAQ is what he was referring to:thumbup:

You know.. of all the help pages I've read, and FAQ's I've gone over.. (and I'm talking all sites, not just AZB) very rarely has my specific inquiry been one of the things listed. No matter how simple/obvious I may have thought it was.
Help pages (and there are help pages here...) will only cover so much. You'll never be able to get any/all inquiries. Asking questions instead of griping is usually the fastest way to get the info you want.

The OP posted a very ambiguous statement to start this all off, leaving people wondering what the OP was trying to do, and if they could help.

If you're wanting to gripe. Fine. Gripe. But you may want to explain your gripe instead of just making a generic "this site sux" type of statement, with no clarification.

Just my $.02

I know what you mean. but it all depends on how you look at the response. It could be read as he would dead money or he would be a good person to meet and become a pool partner. :scratchhead: :shrug: :winknudge: :indecisive: :yeah:
