The "READ MORE" control on the bottom of the band bio on the overview tab does not do anything. I guess, it should enlarge the read area.

Hi Aron,
Sorry this is not working for you. We've tested it in Chrome (we do a lot of our development using Chrome actually) and we see it as working.

Could you please provide us with the page you were on and anything about your environment (this site can be helpful: http://www.thismachine.info/)?

Thanks,
Zac

Zac, I was curious about this problem, so tried the following page:

http://beta.allmusic.com/artist/carl-...

on several browsers, and here are my results (just for the "read more"/"collapse" control behaviour):


  • Comodo Dragon 18.0(.1025.140) - *works OK*


  • FireFox 11.0 - *works OK*


  • Sea Monkey 2.8 - *works OK*


  • Opera 11.62.1347 - *works OK*


  • Safari 5.1.4 (7534.54.16) - *works OK*


  • MS IE 9.0.8112.16421 - *works OK*


  • Google Chrome 18.0.1025.162 - **does not work**



This was strange as I believe Comodo Dragon is an implementation of Chromium so you'd think they would work the same. Then I dug deeper and found several extensions installed on my version of Chrome which I disabled and voila, the "read more"/"collapse" control came back from the dead !

Aron, maybe this is the root cause of what you are experiencing also.

By a process of elimination I worked out that this extension (for me) - Adblock Plus (Beta) 1.2 - was the culprit.

I suspect that the number of permutations of different browser, version, extensions, plugins, themes, etc. in use out there is very large so I'm not surprised that a few road bumps will be encountered along the way.

Zac, from the point of view of my results, I'd say you guys have done a good job so far of making the site compatible.

PS. The http://www.thismachine.info/ link seems to be broken for me..(404 error).

Wow.
Wow wow wow.
Thanks so much for digging into this Graham.

I'll ask our developers to see if there is a workaround on our end for this, but disabling Ad Block plus would possibly be the best solution.

If indeed that is the source of Aron's problem. Could be he has another extension/plugin that is causing the same pain.

The hint about Adblock was dead on. Disabling Adblock makes collapse/expand work as it should.
Thanks!

Using Firefox 11.0 on MacOS 10.6.8 ... looking at an artist page (Barenaked Ladies) the "Read more" arrow isn't working so can't read the full biography.
