Due to overwhelming requests that we return to our former chatty format, we are modifying our new posting style. Short responses will be posted in our original format, and we will only be using the “read more” format for very long letters. Thanks for your valuable feedback.
Dear Gentle Readers,
What’s That Bug? is pleased to announce our brand new feature, a mobile friendly version of the website for you mobile browsers with iphones, androids, blackberries, and such. Our webmaster stayed up all night and cooked up a mobile-friendly version of whatsthatbug.com! Visit us from your iPhone, Blackberry, Android, or WebOS phone. If you want to see the site in the non-mobile format, there is a link at the bottom of the page on the mobile version. Please send us some feedback! Enjoy.
We have also changed the way our posts are viewed. Now you will need to click “Continue Reading…” to find out the answers. Let us know what you think.
Complaint about the new layout of the website
April 11, 2010
I love your website and I really appreciate all the effort you go through to answer questions. I feel bad about complaining, but I have to say that the new layout of your website, which forces readers to click on a link to read your responses to questions, is really annoying and unnecessary. It’s a pain because now I can’t just scroll down the website and glance through everything. I would be really thankful and relieved if you could have your webmaster switch back to the old format. I love your website though! Keep up the good work.
I am the webmaster. I am trying this out for a week or so, and I appreciate the feedback. My goal was to encourage people to click to the full page so that they see the comments, the links to related articles, etc. My hope is that this will allow people to take more full advantage of the site. With that in mind, will you stick around and give me some more feedback in a week?

I’ve not been on WTB for a few days so maybe I’ve missed a post about this. Suddenly I have to click on a link to see the explanation of bug queries. What’s with that? I like being able to just scroll down and read the whole thing like you’ve always had it. A lot of times I don’t read the whole question but almost always read what you have to say. If I have to click to read the rest it takes twice as long and hitting the back arrow doesn’t put me at the same place I was previously on the page.
Don’t want to complain cuz I love your site and have been a faithful reader since 2004. Wow!! what a long time! But it’s true. And you’ve posted several of my images and answered my questions. Just curious about the change in format.
