Have images been clickable before and I haven't noticed or remembered? Well, they aren't actually clickable, but the images that I've looked at so far, maps, diagrams, the text in them show the hand cursor. I've not noticed that before in any other resource. It would be super cool if they were: click on a place name in a map, or a body part in an anatomy diagram and go to an article or different resource, right click...

I would love to see a list of what changes were made. I think we will be seeing more improvements in the weeks ahead.

I am surprised the name change to Compton's wasn't part of it since i do see the book cover has changed to it.

Hi all,

We're in the middle of updating a number of pieces on this. You may see a few more small updates. I'll post in the forums when we're moving forward with the larger resource.

Thanks again for your patience! Smile

Hey all... I had purchased this a few years ago on Community pricing and then there was some sort of error or something, I can't even recall... but all I know if that I don't have it and it's on CP for some ridiculous price, compared to what I had paid for it but not showing in my own orders? I thought Faithlife was going to honour the inital purchase or something...

Anyway, can someone let me know where we're at? Thanks!

There are two different editions. The only one that has ever been on community pricing is public domain and over a century old. No one has that one in Logos because it has not yet been produced. The edition that many people do own is the Noet edition, which is much more up to date. Hope this helps clarify things!

The Noet Edition was on an introductory "sale" price of $99.95 when it originally was listed in the catalog. I don't recall the date that happened.  I believe it remained at that level for some time before going up to $199.95 prior to shipping.  I had paid the $99.95 price (plus tax) when it finally shipped back in October of 2015.

Carmen, you may want to check your order history to see if it is listed there.  Also, if you keep e-mails you may have something showing when it was ordered or if it was subsequently cancelled.  I think there was some arrangement if a person ordered at the lower price and chose not to get the original shipment (due to questions and confusion over content) could keep their order at the lower price and get the updated version when it came out.  You may have an e-mail on that as well.  Not 100% sure of all the details there.

You may want to call customer support.
