How can you see reviews in order?

Postby MolySmokes » Mon Feb 10, 2020 3:50 pm

I think this is a fairly recent change, but looking at the website I used to click on 'Reviews' and could see all reviews with the most recent ones first. This was an easy way to check I hadn't missed anything.

Now it seems that you have to pick a particular area (i.a. "DAWs", 'Keyboards" etc). but maybe I am doing something wrong.

Is there any way a user can see all the reviews in order as per before?

Cheers.

Go to the 'Magazine', then you can see the reviews on an issue by issue basis.

Yes you can but try getting at them in order when you want to read one after another chronologically. I’m still trying to figure that one out.
There is a logic that I can’t quite get.

You're correct, this recently changed and what you desire is currently not possible. Our web traffic analysis showed few people used that approach, preferring to be topic/subject-focused instead, but I have to say I miss it too.

So bear with us as we try to find a way to bring this 'view' back to life. No guarantee of timescale I'm afraid, but I'll try to get it nearer the top of our web To Do list.

If you go to a section landing page from the main menu bar, eg. Reviews https://www.soundonsound.com/reviews you can put your cursor in the search box to the right of the section title (Reviews) (not the search box at the top-right of very SOS page) , then press Enter/Return on your keyboard without typing any keywords/search terms, and it will return a set of Reviews results in reverse chronological order.

We're still working on refining results option, but it's better than no listing.

Hope it helps?
