a tale of two screen grabs




In July The Age declared 

"Food section Epicure here to stay, says Fairfax

Fairfax Media says it has no intention of axing Epicure, saying it would continue to provide strong local content."



In December "Food section Epicure here to stay" - page not found.

Is it just me having trouble navigating the new 'Good Food' section online? It seems so crowded but with so little content.

Update: Viewed on an iPad, the redesign makes sense. But what percentage of Fairfax online readers use that device over a PC or smart phone? Is it worth alienating everyone else with such a clunky design?

just looked for epicure last night and was horrified at the food section - hard to navigate - and we are now at the stage in the web history when places like the age should be thinking about how to help people navigate the web a bit better

The Age is lurching from worse to ....

They've obviously cut down content by having a few regional options but basically just one dumbed down, National but inferior version of Epicure.

And navigation hell.

Oh I saw Good Food and iPad and get it. Totally designed for tablet use and bugger PC users.
