On current search results, the text under the links are not the blurbs, but an abbreviated version of the first few lines. These should be the blurbs when possible, and these should be visible in full. Joe: "readers of the journal, wherever they are or whatever they are doing, should be reading, without interruption."
There seem to be some issues with the login. Here's the specific bug: if you "forget your password" (as I apparently did, though I'm not sure how), you are sent an email, allowing you to login one time, where you are given a chance to change your password; however, as it seems to be set up now, in order to change your password, you need to KNOW the password that you've just claimed to have FORGOTTEN. Catch-22.
Titles of texts should be in boldface (and if a book or longer work in italics, too). When we switched platforms much of this formatting disappeared. Recent essays appear OK, but in many reviews the bold formatting was lost.
Glosses &/or footnotes are now appearing, in italics, in the body of some essays, which is confusing. See, for example, Peter Nicholls's essay: http://electronicbookreview.com/thread/fictionspresent/skindeep
I'm not sure whether it matters anymore, but on the old version of the site, you were not allowed to assign essays a short title that had already been used before, and the system let you know (can't remember exactly how) if you were picking one that had already been used. On the current site, when you are adding essays, there's no way to know whether a short title has been used before. EDIT; The instructions underneath this field should also be rewritten so that they are crystal clear to the thread editor what exactly a short title should entail.
Currently the title field for an essay will not accept any tags (as far as I can tell), even though the help text indicates that it is supposed to. I tried using the <i> tag to italicize an book title but the tag just appeared as text in title. I think it would be a simple but useful design feature to be able to have italics in the title.
The link the the pdf chapter from Wendy Chun's book is not working. This is linked in both Critical Code Studies Week 4 (live) and Critical Code Studies Week 5 (currently being edited). I thought I would post this here because I'm not sure if the link is no longer accurate in terms of the file location or if this is a file type that was not transferred to the new website.
