So you used to be able to click on the picture of a piece in the catalog, sort
of a quick view. You'd see the years it was made, any sets/minifigures the
piece was in, etc. You all know what I'm talking about. Well, a few days
ago I couldn't do it anymore. I've tried three different devices.

Why would they make such a horrible change for? I rely on that heavily when listing
minifigure parts to make sure I have the correct listing. This is going to make
this job twice as long now.

It still works for me. Hopefully it's another one of these short-lived bugs
that are becoming more and more frequent.

Huh, that's odd... I thought it might be my laptop at first but I tried three
other devices and they all have the same problem. The clicker doesn't change
shape when over the picture and clicking does absolutely nothing.

at your end. Which broiwsers have you tried?

Mozilla Firefox on the laptop, Google Chrome on the other laptop, and I believe
Opera Browser on the computer. This is very very weird.

I get no large (pop up) images on Windows 7 with IE11. The thumbnail images are
no longer live links.

I have the same bug. It is not just you. Windows 7: Firefox, Chrome, etc. Logged
in, logged out, doesn't matter.

Same here using Chrome Windows 10. Checked it at the work computer with Firefox
and same... No large images on click. I really hope they fix it soon. Really
slow looking up minifig torsos or the figs themselves.

It's been broken for weeks. It doesn't affect all pages, which may be
why some people are reporting the issue and others are not.

It's not browser or OS related so far as I can tell - I've tried three
different browsers on two different OSes and three different computers.

The 'add to wanted list' links are also broken randomly.

I checked the HTML source for when you go through "Market" - "Parts" - "[some-category]"
and there is no "onclick" or anchor or anything, so this is not a browser issue.

By poking around I fond you can get the old behaviour back by changing the URL
of the page. For instance, when browsing the "Accessory, Human Tool" category,
it lands on the following URL:

https://www.bricklink.com/catalogList.asp?catType=P&catString=990&itemBrand=1000

Now manually change the URL to read as follows (add "Old" in there):

https://www.bricklink.com/catalogListOld.asp?catType=P&catString=990&itemBrand=1000

Extremely clumsy, but if you are really needing large pics on those pages.

Doesn't work for me either. This happened a few weeks ago. Then all of a
sudden I could enlarge them again. Then a couple days ago, it stopped letting
me enlarge them again. A big pain if you ask me.

The zoom-in bug was fixed a few weeks ago but it seems that a recent site update
may have reverted the fix. I'll forward the information to someone on our
development team to take a look. I'll let you know once we've resolved
the issue.

Thank you!

Should be fixed now.
