Issues Needing Fixing

Posted by Anon (Not Canada) on 10/22/2020

The search box does not work on this page:

https://www.earthclinic.com/remedies.html?ltr=K#ailments

EC: Thank you! It's the top search on every page at the moment, so we'll get it fixed asap.

On the Latest Posts page the Editor's Choice icon (Lugol's Iodine for Covid-19 Fri, 23 Oct 20 10:07:26 -0700)

is layered above the menu. It floats on top when you scroll through the menu and covers the links.

Also if you click that post's link it takes you to the post, but opening and closing the menu brings you to the top of the page instead of back to the post (which is at the bottom of the page).

EarthClinic is one of the best looking sites on the Net. That logo is *perfect* :) The blue and green combined with the black and white. The sans serif, no caps... The little white dude with the arrow. Whoever designed that it is *sweet*! The little leaves embracing the Earth....

EC: Thank you so much.  We appreciate the alerts! 

Yes, noticed that about the Editor's Choice floating at the top today too. It's on his "to do" list.

We've had that exact same logo since 2008, by the way! The font changed 2 years ago, but nothing else.

Issues Neeing Fixing

Posted by ivybridge (TN) on 07/08/2023

The small fonts I am seeing in recent longer posts utilizing a 24 inch monitor are hard to read and I have decided to skip those reads or I will strain my eyes further. I can only imagine attempting to read those post will a cell phone which would be impossible for me.

EC: Thank you for letting us know. There are a few people who send in posts using small fonts and we don't always catch it in the approval process. Fixed the 3 recent small font posts from Cheryl in NJ.

Hi Deirdre,

I have seen this small font occur on some of my posts and I don't think it is caused by me changing my font size, because when the reply window opens, all of the print that is already there is smaller than usual and everything I type goes in smaller also. It only happens once in awhile and usually gets corrected in time.

Thanks, Art. Our fabulous programmer just added something to catch and flag a small font on a post. Hopefully, that will fix the issue in future posts. A smaller font typically happens if someone copies and pastes a sentence from another website or document. If you don't use Control SHIFT Paste, it will copy the code from the other source, sometimes causing an issue on the Earth Clinic side.


Latest Posts, Latest Answers

Posted by Earth Clinic on 12/16/2020

Hi Everyone,

As you may have noticed, pages on Earth Clinic can take a very long time to load. Today we figured out, after the site was running particularly slowly, that we have too many databases pointing at the Recent Posts page, which is slowing the entire site down (answers.earthclinic.com and ted.earthclinic.com). To fix this, our fabulous programmer has separated all the Latest Posts sections.

Please make sure to click on Recent Answers because that's where all the new Q&A posts will be. We have 16 new replies from our newsletter just in the past couple of hours in that new section instead of in the Latest Posts section. Sorry that you have to click on another section to read posts, but now the site loads much faster!

You can find the links on the far left corner for desktop computer users under "Recent Activity".

I like both logos very much and they would certainly look very nice on merch such as caps, T-shirts, sweatshirts and hoodies as a way to help support Earth Clinic!

Hello everyone, just wanted to give you a heads up that today we are upgrading the navigation menu at the top for our desktop users. Instead of the horizontal line of titles under the Earth Clinic logo, you will click on the large 3 line icon on the top left side. From there, you will find the same sections but in bigger font, and MUCH EASIER to read.

The new clean logo area before you click on the 3 blue bars on the left.

The menu that pops up after you click on that button.


The drop down menu that appears when you clear on the person icon:

As always, we would love to get your feedback after we go live!

Sexy new header, but the menu is fabulously invisible ;)

EC: Did you view on a desktop computer? Mobile devices show a different menu that we haven't updated.

So far, comments have been favorable from Facebook posters re the new dropdown navigation menu.

Dear Earth Clinic Staff:

Thank you for administering the earthclinic.com website. Regarding the new menu, when using a laptop computer, the menu background and menu text are invisible. When I then press the key combination Command-A (the Mac equivalent of Control-A on a Windows computer) to select all content on the webpage, I can see some hyperlinks in the form of white text. That selected white text is scattered amongst the rest of the content of the webpage, making the white text difficult to read.

It is possible that there might be other people using older computers with older Web browsers that cannot render menus such as the new one at earthclinic.com.

Also, the webpages of some websites have layouts such that large portions of the tops and bottoms of the webpages are taken up by horizontal bands of content. Those such webpages appear to be suited for large monitors with large screen resolutions. For the people who aren't in a position to acquire such monitors, using smaller monitors with lower screen resolutions results in very little space in the middle of the screen for viewing the content of the webpages.

Thank you for asking for feedback. Your consideration is greatly appreciated.

Sincerely,

J.

EC: Hello, J.

Thank you so much for taking the time to write us. We will send your comments to the programmer and see what can be done to fix the issues for older browsers.

To be clear, you are opening up the menu by clicking on the 3 blue bars at the top of the page on the left? Those 3 bars are a standard menu icon these days to accommodate different screen sizes.

We have tested the site on all browsers with using a laptop computer with a 14 inch screen and the menu displays perfectly when it is opened up. Earth Clinic (and most sites that are updated regularly) works best when the browser is up to date with javascript enabled.

Thanks again. We will be in touch!

Java is enabled. I'm using the Chrome browser. The menu still displays nearly invisible white text on a transparent background.

EC: Thanks for the update. Can you check now? We made some changes.

You're welcome, EC.

The menu background and menu text are now visible when I use the same laptop and the same Web browser that I was using previously. I apologize for twice posting this additional feedback; I discovered your reply after having filled in the contact form a little while before. On both occasions of trying to see the menu, I had been clicking the menu icon shaped like three blue bars.

Thank you for taking care of that matter. In case the programmer can benefit from additional information about my Web-browser settings, I have had JavaScript enabled on both occasions that I tested the menu. Also, I have had a browser add-on called NoScript enabled on both occasions.

Regarding the section of the Earth Clinic website dedicated to Ted from Bangkok's observations, might a link to ted.earthclinic.com be provided in the menu?

Thank you again!

Sincerely,

J.

Yes, thank you for the reminder..Ted's archive has been added to the menu.

Thank you, EC, and you're welcome.

Regarding the link to Ted's archive, it seems that three w's and a dot became added to the front of ted.earthclinic.com, resulting in a broken link.

EC: Thank you so much, once again, J!

Fixed!!

You're welcome again, EC, and thank you again, too. Also, when I tried the mobile version of the website—I apologize for not trying it before—I noticed that the link to Ted's archive is invisible.

EC: Thank you! We will get that fixed soon!!

You're welcome, and the link on the mobile menu now works on my mobile phone. Thank you for taking care of all of those menu matters and for having and managing the website! I have found content therein to be a blessing on many occasions!

Works great here, too. The "Pets" menu can be moved up a line, the ad at the bottom covers the text. There is plenty of room between menu options making clicking the right item easy. You could eliminate the extra space between the menu headers and preceeding text, even. It all looks very clean and tight. Really nice.

EC: Thank you for the feedback! Glad it's working now.

I love your site. it was so easy to use, but now you changed the format and it is so difficult to find the information needed... Hope you pay attention to this the next time you make changes! Have a nice day!!!

EC: Hello, thank you for the feedback. The programmer made changes to the desktop design yesterday, so hopefully it will be easier to find menu AND the 2 most popular categories, ailments and remedies.

We need to stay current and update the design from time to time, sorry!

Hi Earth Clinic, I just wanted to send a quick note to say thank you so much for sending out the email with “Earth Clinic's Trending Posts: 30 Days of Discovery! ” I read through all of the recent posts on a regular basis, but I must have forgotten what I read or missed a few posts because some of them were new to me. I like being able to review the top trending posts. So thank you so much for putting that together! Excellent job!


Posting on Earth Clinic

Posted by Lauren (Queens ) on 01/27/2022

Hi EC: whenever I submit a post on your site it's always difficult to find my response if I don't remember to check ASAP. Is there any shortcut to locate my response if it's a few days later? Please advise.. thanks

EC: Hi Lauren,

When you login into your account, you'll find 2 sections with your posts and links to all your posts.. one is Feedback and the other is Q&A. Otherwise, yes, impossible to find if you don't have an account set up.

We are excited to share that we have implemented a new search tool that we believe functions better than Google Search. While Google does an excellent job indexing pages and posts, its interface can be cluttered and confusing.

We invite you to test our new search tool and provide us with your feedback. If you are not satisfied with the results, we have included a link where you can use Google Search instead.

Please try it out and let us know what you think!

I typed a search query on the box "Search Earth Clinic", nothing happened.

I saw someone posted the same problem.

Does anyone else have this problem?

EC: Hi, can you please tell us what you searched for (exact phrase or topic)? That will be very helpful. We need to keep tweaking it when the key words don't display results  Also, did you then try the Google link and get results? Thanks.

My search was: neck pain remedy. I tried several times.

EC: On a desktop computer, "neck pain remedy" displayed a lot of results but it took a second or two for our database to collect the results. Please try again. We'll ask the programmer to add a spinning button so people know it's in progress. Thanks for the feedback!

Upon typing an ailment in SEARCH EARTH CLINIC, nothing pops up. Anyone else having problems with the site?

EC: We just tried the search box at the top and results popped up on our search terms. Sent your request to the programmer to check.
If anyone else is having this issue, please reply. If you are using something other than the search bar, please let us know.

When typing anything into the search bar, nothing appears. I've tried 'sore throat' and a host of other ailments - but nothing. Help!

EC: Our programmer thinks it might be your cache. Please try clearing your history/cache or using a different browser. Let us know if it works!

Hi everyone,

We have A TON of great replies to questions on Earth Clinic's answers.earthclinic.com site so I have recently decided to start duplicating/reposting some of these fabulous posts that I come across during the day on the main site, so more people can find them.

You'll see them pop up on the Latest Posts page. They will have old dates on them (like the two just below this one on muscle cramps and sprains). Just FYI when you see them.
