Should the editors and vendors do more to ensure there are proper links to items advertised in the news feed?

Often there's a lovely picture but with incomplete ordering instructions and/or details. Then one has to click on the vendor name to get to the TMP vendor page and then click to get to the vendor's website and hope that what was labeled "new" on TMP is in fact on the vendor home page and not buried in some sub-menus somewhere.

I don't care what happens to your businesses particularly, but more effort needs to be made in simplifying purchase processes. A second of thought and another one of effort could yield more sales for you and a more pleasant experience for everyone else.

I noticed you added a link in the comments to the Timecast article, but it seems to be the same link as the "For more information" link at the bottom of the article.

Could be.
