Component Shop website
« on: March 01, 2020, 11:47:39 am »

It's Sunday afternoon 1st March.
Is anyone else having problems trying to view the Radio Control battery section on Component's webite ?
I've tried accessing from both PC and mobile web browsers.
I'm maybe wrongly assuming Iain has it offline whilst being updated?

It must be just the wrong link in the page. If I let the auto menu take me down to the lowest level I want (battery category) it works OK.

I was clicking on the link in the battery picture page. The link simply refreshed the same page and does not take you any lower level.

There are a few minor quirks in the way the website works I have noticed depending from where you access certain pages and what you have been doing. Going back to the main menu is usually the answer.

It doesn't work for me, on my tablet. Seems to be ok on PC.
Batteries, motors, Esc's do not show the full range.
I emailed them sometime ago. They thought there might be a problem, in their reply, but evidentially it's ok their end.

The links on the batterys page seem to just refresh the page.  Going to the home page, selecting batteries from the products, then picking out the type and voltage from the pop-out menus seems to work OK.

I get exactly the same result as Klunk. Led lights instead of batteries or motors.
Not really a problem as I phone my orders anyway but a bit inconvenient.

Every link I have tried on the site is fine for me on main pc and laptop and phone, having you tried clearing your Cache or f5,

No similar problems with Firefox on Windows 7 PC, but the word has gone out for Iain to have a look at it. With the impact of coronavirus on the supply line from China he must be a very busy man - if not also a very worried one.

Seems not to like working on my Samsung phone and Samsung tablet. Perhaps it doesn't like Android operating system?
Works fine on my PC windows 10.
This morning I get waterproof boxes showing when I look for batteries.

Have you tried scrolling down the screen a bit from there? You should then get pictures of different types of batteries, all with the Magic Pointy Finger to open the link.

Just now I got as far as the page displaying all the types of batteries. I selected the radio control option and got only a motor and a single strip of led lighting!
It used to work fine sometime ago but not anymore.

I tested it in my Samsung android phone, no issues.

Hi, when you go to the battery products page, type what you want to look at in the search box
That should get the info you require

That sort of worked! I had to select 'look at all search results' after typing in ' 9.6v batteries'.
Nothing came up under 'radio control' batteries.except a selection of leads and connectors!


I've been having this trouble for several months. But looks promising now.  Thanks.....

It can be difficult to get a website to be 100% compatible with all the different devices and levels of operating system software that may be trying to access it.

I certainly agree with you, these things crop up unexpectedly, like the eBay format on my tablet is different to that on Windows 10 PC.

Many smaller company websites are not configured to work properly across all platforms ie pc, android and iOS and that's before you consider the different browsers Chrome, Firefox, Safari and plug ins like Adobe Flash etc so work 'after a fashion.'
Best bet is try one browser and if that doesnt seem to work, try another.
