After the site redesign I could not longer save lists after I edited the order of my items, however, now I can not save my lists no matter what. Adding any new item and trying to save the list as a full list just creates an error and the list does not save. It doesn't save in Firefox, Chrome or IE.

I can not remove items I add in Chrome, or change their order. I can not use any of the buttons below the text window in firefox. I can not resize my text boxes in IE.

I had to install Opera just to get the lists to partially work. I can save the list, add items to it and add text, but the lists will not save if I re-arrange items on it. The buttons do not work for me in Firefox either.

I'm pretty sure that they know about these issues, but it is rather disappointing to see that it's been more than a month and we're still unable to use lists properly.

I'm in Firefox and the buttons for moving items up and down and deleting them from the list are not working for me either.

Yep, for me buttons don't work in Firefox, but I can add items and save lists. Buttons do work in IE, but can't save changes.

I noticed this too. The buttons are broken in Firefox. Sometimes in Opera the suggestions pull-down list refuses to close when the mouse is clicked outside of the window.

Sadly this is still an issue. I use the list to keep track of games, but all I can do is add more to the list at this point.

Lists are broken for me too. I can't edit my lists because whenever I click "save" it goes to an error screen.

I use Chrome mostly. Have't tried any other browsers, though.

Funny, the list buttons don't work for me in Firefox (20.0b6 beta) but work in the Chromium nightly... Yet I see others are having the opposite issue...

Also, POST 300!!

Lists are broken for me too.

  • Can't re-order existing items.
  • Can't remove items.
  • Used to use basic html code to insert links into an individual item's description. This also no longer works.

Just tested in Chrome and Firefox. Looks like removing / resorting only works in Chrome and not Firefox. Will put a ticket in for this.

Thanks guys

Saving lists doesn't work for me in Chrome. I need to update my lists, man! Aliens: Colonial Marines is still on one of them and it's starting to become embarrassing :p

Oh, and please bring back the 'Add to list' button. It was one of my favorite things on the site. Now, when I find a game and decide to put it on a list I have to go to my lists and find it again. Not ideal IMO.

I'm back to comment on this thread and keep it alive. I know this is not the only thread about this. In Windows, the list functions do not work properly in the most popular browsers: IE, Firefox, Chrome. In Ubuntu, I believe Firefox worked for me once but I don't remember if it was 100% or partially. I have yet to test browsers on OS X.

Not a bug but a (return) feature request: Please put a button back on game pages to add to list. I used that all the time.

I went to this site to look for a more suitable HTML 5 browser. I gave Maxthon a shot, and list functions work.

This, to me, seems like Giant Bomb coded the site ahead of the curve. Maybe it's the browsers' jobs to catch up.

Sooo, the lists are still broken about a month later from when this thread was first made. It's disappointing it is taking so long to fix.

@014 Also, if they made something great for 20 years in the future and no one could use it anymore until then unless you use some obscure other method, it's not really an improvement. Regardless, thanks for the note about Maxthon, it totally worked.

Not only do I have issues adding items and changing the positions in the list on chrome, the search results are often very erratic.

Agreed. I can understand that they have a lot to tweak and adjust on the "new" site, but it's unacceptable that lists have been broken for such a long time.

In addition to the issues I mentioned near the start of this thread, I cannot get my "Collection" list to save NHL '94, even though it says "List Updated". I've cleared the Firefox 20.0.1 cache, quit the browser and tried multiple refreshes.

I'll add to the chorus. Just attempted to add a game to one of my lists, and ever after I see the green bar saying "List Updated," the new game is nowhere to be found. (Oddly, the new number ranking for the games that were previously on the list are saved, as if the new game was added correctly.)

Lists have been working for me until now. Suddenly I can't add anything to a list whereas a couple weeks ago I added Bioshock Infinite to a list with no problem. Using Chrome.

Since there was an update to Firefox recently, I decided to try editing a list. I was able to add two games to a list using Firefox version 20.0.1.

EDIT: Scratch that. I was thrown off by the green bar at the top. It didn't actually save the new games.

Well, I think I will stop supporting GB as they not really are listening and supporting me. They probably focus on other 'important' things.

Ditto. I know it's not a priority but lists are one of my favorite GB features and them being so busted for so long is really starting to bum me out.

This is happening to me as well. Oddly enough, I wasn't having this problem as recently as a week ago (using Chrome). I've never been able to re-order lists though, among other issues.

Yeah, I tried making a list today, and it would save that the list existed, but it wouldn't save anything that I added to it. I then tried to add something to another list, but it didn't take.

Last night @cjduke told me he was having the same problems too, but I doubt he cares enough to actually venture here into the bug reporting forum. (I'm just kidding.)

Lists are still not updating in Firefox 20.0.1 or Opera 12.5. On the plus side, the "up/down/remove" buttons are actually working in Firefox now. It would be nice to know if people are indeed looking into a solution for this.

I'm having the same list issue.

Also I can't post a topic because it says I recently did -- but I haven't, and I can't delete photos.

Same as may others, I cannot add new games to my lists at the moment. I updated my reviews as well and all the recommendations I had disappeared. These features being broken for so long is annoying, miss the old site a bit :(

I love using the lists but it's just a broken mess at the moment. Many others have already mentioned this but I'll add my voice.

I can now move or remove existing items in a list.

  • Unable to add new items to an existing list. This is despite the fact that a green bar appears at the top stating "List Updated" after pressing "Save My List".

Have been looking into the list issue periodically. Will figure out why items can't be added soon. (We know about the missing Add To List button, its a low priority but we do intend to bring it back eventually)

Ok I have fixed adding items to lists on our dev environment, but unfortunately that fix won't be pushed out until Monday next week.

The re-ordering stuff should have been fixed a while ago. The links not working in descriptions is intentional for now.

reordering works, but its still kind of wonky, sometimes I have to make a change, then it won't let me reorder any further, I have to save and then move it up or down a few more spaces... Not sure exactly how to explain, you cant always rely on the move up/down buttons. Sometimes moving an item up does not work, but moving the one above it one down does work (essentially doing the same thing), but then it's stuck there. have to save and reorder more...

Play around with reordering and this will make sense.
