latest news is not latest news

    on the main page ( of business traveller are some topics headed “latest news”.
    But these are not the latest news stories. the one titled “Motel One opens third Stuttgart property” has been on the front page for a couple of weeks.
    something is wrong with the software which extracts news stories to put them onto the main page since the main page shows the age of the stories and this Motel one story shows “5 hours ago” but if you click the story itself then it was uploaded on 7th july. The same for “Holiday Inn Express opens Mexico City airport property” which is flagged as “six hours ago” when it also is from 7th july (I’m writing this on 16th july and 7th july was a lot more than six hours ago).

    and what is the side panel called “forum” supposed to show?
    the first box says “auto draft home”. No idea what that means since clicking on it gives a page not found error.
    The next line seems to be a topic “login not working”.
    The next line seems to be the name of a forum “Train of thought – in which our correspondent tries life on the railways, and finds it makes a refreshing change from airport queues and premium lounges…”

    it would be better if the box was consistent – either forum names or topic names. why a mix of the two (plus one which seems to be neither).

    attached is a screenshot of what the home page says today (16 july). the ages of the stories are wrong.

    Yes, you’re right. It’s something that is down to be fixed on Monday. In the meantime, many apologies.
