I really think some poor devs and designers were forced by marketing/sales overlords to implement that
sbiewald276516dThe site of the Deutsche Bahn is not much better. While the most script origins are from CDNs of the DB, it is only possible to do one action at the same time:
Once you e.g. open the Bonus Card page, the ticket search page will reset and vise versa.
My energy provider also has one of the worst websites: The actual site is in an iframe - and it has to be in an iframe.
Every change on the page, both sites (parent and frame) reload, thus it is impossible to see error messages for more than .2 seconds.
The registration page has a password limit of 20, the login page has not. Some special characters are escaped at registration, but are not in the login form...
It took me 45 minutes to register and successfully login.
Clear0Ff191916dBlame it on the client that requested these features.
Normally when I mention things like this, everyone else says they never have any issues and its just me..
So, here is where all the 'just me' folk hang out. :-)
My current pet peve is trying to order something online when it says they do deliver to the isolated rock of an island I live on, and then finding out days later, no they don't...
Now if they could just update their databases like once in 10 years, I mean, its not like the island in Lost, it doesn't keep moving around !
myss347416dFlixbus is a cringe of a company by itself. Still remember when I went to their office at main bus station in Zagreb because I couldn't refund their ticket due to some online error, and they said they can't do that from any kind of backoffice and that I should just simply wait for error to go away and do it by myself. That actually took several days..
Mr-Myrk40316dIf your simple mostly static web page isnt using 10 gigabytes of node vue and whatever the new buzzword is, react? libraries to work youre a boomer and should retire
Reminds me of a smart ticket I had, which failed..
No problem, just take it to the nearest ticket office with a support desk and they will give you a new one..
And just how do you get there when the buses don't take cash..
Why you walk practically 10 miles of course. :-)
So, always have at least two. :-)
And check it doesn't automatically cancel itself if you don't use it for 12 months...
What do expect from outsourced developers at 10$/hour?
Probably in India and probably they didn’t even understand requirements. If “back” button wasn’t defined in specs, of cause it is not working !
What a surprise!
Separate note : Talking from experience. I was once “delivered” a web form app with height and width set to … 0. Why ? Because the requirement didn’t specify that “window should actually be visible”
More than half of the web is just CRUD anyway.
I don't know why people need to make everything so complicated.
