Right, typed address in instead of following the link

Loaded in about 5 seconds on ipad

Straight to page with yellow and green covers

Search appeared to work BUT the links only went to the Green book versions of the GNs and OSG

When you go to the old GNs and OSG they are the older versions

Am i missing something somewhere?

Yes had email today saying they are aware that the new system is not fully functional and that it will be improved greatly and bugs will be ironed out and they are sure it will be as good as the bookshelf.

Finished with please continue to use both until the new system is 100% functional.

I got the impression its not launched officially yet based on the email and that people were given links to site try it.

It may well be Steve, and, you could well have had an email.

I'm no longer on their Xmas card list!  :slap

As they are no longer using the Bookshelf system for the new amendment then I have no choice other than to use the new platform.

Now I know that I have until June to comply, but I am extremely busy, I also have a new access platform to learn.

It is very different to Bookshelf.

Which is very book oriented.

Which I liked.

The trouble with Bookshelf is that it not sufficiently stable.

When, it works, it works well.

 

This new platform is no where near like a book.

 

There are no pages.

Each Chapter is one big page, all the text just blurs into one.

The search works OK, but, it is not totally clear as to which book etc. the results are in immediately.

The forward & back system is very poor.

It seems to be frames driven, I think, but I'm no http programmer.

 

It was totally unavailable for the first two days.

 

It crashes on my iPad.

 

The offline system is simply inadequate.

If it is indeed a Beta version then should our subscription not START when the wrinkles are ironed out?

And why could they not launch it on a bookshelf style platform?

Just wondering

If it is still in beta i'd be asking for my money back no way on this earth you have to pay to find bugs in their shitty web app. Should have been custom software not web based.

I think we should be able to buy bs7671 on Amazon kindle, google play and other reading software then they wouldn't have to worry about their platform. :|

This is making a bit of a mockery of their stature... The Institute of Engineering and Technology cannot get it together to produce an e book!
Either that or they tried to do it on the cheap with a second rate developer!?


Just ranting...... Again!

More than likely a 3rd world developer as it's cheaper.
