I am using Google Chrome 16.0.912.63 beta-m (the latest beta version) on Windows 7. Even after logging off and logging back on, the portal sidebar still asks me to log in to access the widget. I have even tried this in an incognito browser (so that all the cookies are cleared), but it still won't show content after logging in.

At the top right, the Google +1 text isn't a hyperlink, whereas all the other links next to it (FB, twitter, YT) have clickable text. Seems inconsistent.

Yea, same here. it's not even clickable.

EDIT: log out and back in, as it says in the article.

EDIT 2: Nope, still doesn't work.

I think an improvement would be to remove the featured/popular posts thing. This may be me, but it looks a little too much like engadget now.

Links are fixed.

Regarding the widget...try logging out, clearing browser cache, logging in. Once it works, it works. Or so it has been for me.

Google text still not hyperlinked for me.

Tried logging out, wiping cache and logging back in. Widget still doesn't work. This is in Chrome / W7 x64.

Also tried on IE, which I have never used for xda, so it's a fresh start. Logged in, widget still doesn't work.

Another one (sorry )...

The Twitter, Facebook and Google+ links at the bottom of each post on the main portal page are just images. They're not linked to anything.

And when viewing an individual article, Google+ is missing completely from the bottom of the post.

Chrome 16 / Win7 x64 and verified on IE9.

Want more?

On the main Portal page, clicking on "xx comments" for any of the articles only takes you to the article itself, and doesn't take you directly to the comments section of the article, as it should.

1. same here, and the "log in" on the widget looks like it is supposed to be hyperlink but isnt.


2. and when loading site, when NOT logged in, there used to be a nice message to "non members" to check out and join the "world famous forums" and make sure to check out the "XDA New User Guide" that was written by some A-hole xda member.... oh wait that was me....
