    Hey, JDL. It's 2012. Your current website is about as functionally useful as one from 1994.

    Man....so you can't log into your account and enter an order anymore or what? That's how I had been doing my orders rather than call my local dealer because my dealer's prices were like a moving target...it seems they charged me whatever they felt like at the time. So I started placing my orders online and my local dealer would get it and fill it and I'd just go pick it up. So now I can't even price out a job anymore, check on availiability (not that the online inventory was always right)? That sucks!

    P.S. - WTF...the new site just keeps sending me around in circles!!!

    I emailed them a few weeks ago and received response right away. They said it would be several months until the old website functions are available because they have to move everything to a new web platform. If it doesn't happen don't shoot me, I'm just the messenger.

    sorry but that's BS.... if they have any half way decent IT staff all that stuff is staged and ready ahead of time. They are feeding you a line... just think of upgradings/changes on this forum.... does that take weeks or months, and JD is a mulch-billon dollar company who has millions invested in the web.

    Yea I'm not happy about it either. The old site was good except for not being able to exclude what the local store didn't have in stock. Being able to purchase online I had a better idea that my prices were fair. Like Darryl said, my prices at the JDL desk were like a moving target. It was kind of insulting. The old site also let me figure out what I want and need more than what they wanted me to have.
