finding your own review in the listings

There is a review I wanted to go back and add pictures to but I can't find which one. You can easily find a listing of your reviews, but when you click on the review it takes you to the property and shows you all the reviews of that property with the most recent ones at the top. You shouldn't have to page through everyone else's review to get to your own.

When you're on "your reviews" page and you click on your review, it should take you to the full listing of that review, NOT the property.

1. Re: finding your own review in the listings

Thank you for pointing this out, as it is one my pet peeves.

In fact, when you look at the link on your reviews, it is two links; it only looks as if it's a single link. If you see a line like this:

Excelsior Hotel : Couldn't get any lower

clicking on the name of the hotel (Excelsior Hotel) links to the main listing for all the hotel's reviews. But if you click on the title of the review ("Couldn't get any lower"), you will go directly to that review.

I can't tell you how many times that tripped me up before I learned that; it's a poor design.

Hi cala3,

Welcome to the forums.

You're right and there's a way. When you're on your Contributions page and want to find your specific review, on the listing, click on the title of your review and not the business name. For example, if my review is: Bistro Pastis: Excellent French Food, I'd click on my title which is Excellent French Food. Clicking on the title takes you to your specific review.

i remember asking this about a year ago. i was SO grateful to country wife for her answer!

another 'trick' i learned at the same time; if you want to read reviews for something, clicking on the title of the first review opens all of them. sometimes, clicking on 'more' only opens the one you are reading.

More happy news, Pam. I believe TA has upgraded the clicking on the title of the first review in the listings in order to open them all. I just went off to click on the title of the 5th review of a listing to double check, and they all opened up. I remember that once being a suggestion for improvement on HUMTAB. I think TA listened. Still you do need to know the "title of" part.
