Stupid website tricks
« on: May 21, 2016, 12:04:01 PM »
Here's a link to a popular regional pizza chain based in Dayton OH
https://www.294king.com/Default.aspx

Am I the only one who would be frustrated as hell if I clicked a link for this chain's site on a newspaper's page (like I did) and was wondering where the closest dine in location was to me?

I know they have them, I've eaten at a couple of them.

Looks like you have to register an account and then you MIGHT be able to view locations, by going into the order system. *shaking head*

I've seen similar idiocy from other restaurants.  More than once I've gone to a restaurant's website to look at their menu, only to find that they don't have their menu on their website, nor even a description of what type of food they serve. I had to turn to Yelp for the info. You'd think restaurants that decide to have a website would provide the basic info that a customer wants to know - the menu, the hours, the location(s), if they deliver or cater, etc.

If you know where to dig, you can find out that they do deliver without registering for an account. But who wants to establish an account just to find out if there's a location in your area?

Oh, this is rich. I clicked around and discovered that they have a link to their My Space page. I have a sinking suspicion that they are doing this deliberately to cut down on fraudulent orders, but this is ridiculous.
