It's probably just too early in the morning but I can't find ABR sidewinder, or any other business member.

Can anyone give me directions.

I would have thought they would have been easy to locate, or is a 'boy' look not good enough?

Thanks Peter

I started to find him on the net then decided to go through exploroz.

I thought it would have been easy to do but as stated below it's not.

Never mind, I'll now go and order what I need.

OK, finally found them, but it wasn't easy.

You really need to be in the know to find them.

First, you go into the membership area, then you have to know what state the're in, then you finally find them.

If there is an easier way to find them I would appreciate some help.

If not could I suggest that consideration be given to making business members more noticeable.

Thank you

Boo Boo,
I agree with you about finding them. It is ok if you know where to look but if you don't it is difficult.

Maybe David and Michelle could change this and make it easier to find them. Food for thought anyway.

I agree
I was looking for a business member last week and couldn't find them. Business members are obviously good for the forum so a better way to access them would be a very good idea. As so much business is done by email, it doesn't make much sense having to trawl through states to llocate them. An index of types of businesses and business names seems to be needed.

I've wanted to buy from businesses I knew were members too, but also couldn't easily find them so gave up and went elsewhere.

Pity they can't interact on the Forum as in the past. Now all we have is the (with exceptions) uninformed giving advice.

Hi Paul

We do try interact but have found that there is always someone ready to attack you (even other business members) or thinks he knows better. There are private members that reply, create blogs or attack that make business members shy to post advice.

In many cases I will reply to a post directly to the member by personal message.

With regard to finding business members I have started to pay a fair amount of money to ExplorOz for key words like ABR and Anderson that allow members to click on the word and find me.

Best Regards

Derek.

I have difficulties with his site as well on an iPad.
You can only view the products that are on the icon list as the drop down products list will not stay down to let you select from it.
Assume it is a apple type glitch

We are aware of the Apple issue and are working on it.
