An artist's list of song titles should all display on one page.

An artist's "Songs" section should be switched back to listing all songs on a single page. Or, you should at least provide that viewing option.

Having to click through page after page of alphabetized song titles, guessing at things like "which page will the 'H' songs be on," is a tedious chore.

Up until about a week ago, the all-songs-on-one-page view was the default, and it was much more use friendly.

Hi Caffeinated.

We needed to restrict the number of entries we were showing on a single tab because artists with huge song catalogs were slowing down the site.

More info is available here: https://getsatisfaction.com/allmusic/...

We plan to enable a "jump list" of each of the letters to allow users to get to the letter of the alphabet they were looking for in the near future. Sorry about this change, since you clearly state that you preferred it the other way, but it was a requirement for the overall health and performance of the site.

Thanks for the response. I honestly didn't think anybody from AllMusic would even read my post.

I've managed a couple of large websites before, (not nearly as large as AllMusic, though), and I can understand the reasons for the change.

I look forward to your implementation of jump-lists, and I think that's an excellent compromise.

Thanks again for replying, Zac.

it would be great to have an alphabetical index for the artists' songs page. when you're, say, on Springsteen, and looking for a song beginning with "r", you won't have to guess which page number you have to go...

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled
alphabetical index for artist songs.

Remember six years ago when I said this would be a good thing to implement? 

THAT DAY HAS ARRIVED!
