When I try to go to peoples sites through their profile I’m taken to the WinCutomize home page. The only other way I know is through the galleries which means I can only view 1 page. I tried to raid Kitty’s stuff last night, 1 page…needless to say I was disappointed, is there another way? Thanks.

Quoting Zubaz,
Can you get to http://www.wincustomize.com/explore/all/pagesize/30/view/list/author/Vampothika ?

Yeah, is that it? Can I use the old site?

When going from the "Profile" page to the "Wincustomize site", the link returns me to the home page, Zu.

Some people did not have a personal site setup, and since they have since been discontinued it would redirect to the homepage.

The link from the profile is not working for those who do have a personal site either. It has always worked in the past so something is definately not working properly. It is a shame that there is no easy way for a visitor to view all of a skinners gallery. One page just doesn't cut it.

Most of us "REALLY old folks" know how to visit and view our own stuff. I am just saying that visitors to the site should have an easy way to view all of the skins available from a particular skinner. It makes no sense that the option is not available. I am sure it would enhance the user experience.

If you go to the menu at the top and choose explore all and then search by the user name it shows you their stuff from all categories

Anyone creating skins should put a link to their gallery in each upload otherwise they won't get seen and will soon be buried. It just makes no sense to not have any easy path to these things for the skinner or the site or visitors.

That is marvelous, but again the average casual visitor to the site will not know these things. This is the only site I participate in that does not have an easy, clear link to a skinners gallery. It should be a basic function of the site.

It's actually very easy.  You are on a skin page, click the username and you are taken to their skins.

But that only takes you to a profile page

Which shows their latest skins and info, and a button on the right side to view the full list of skins.

I'll see why the forum profiles aren't linking to there though.

ID this is what should IMO be linked to when Clicking a skinners name.. http://islanddog.wincustomize.com/skins.aspx   If a skinner dont have a personal page then possibly. http://www.wincustomize.com/explore/all/pagesize/30/view/list/author/islanddog   Rather than the current Recent skins list which only shows a few skins.  Tho I think having the skins List with "thumbs" would be a better Idea.  As the average user shouldn't have to jump thru hoops to find a skinners gallery..

 

Intuitive navigation is the key to a user friendly site. Folks come for skins, they should be able to find them relatively easily.

The point of it going to a profile like this http://www.wincustomize.com/users/673228/islanddog, is because that offers basic info about the person including their recent skins.  

I don't think two clicks is jumping through many hoops.
