Word Biblical Commentary is a very useful commentary series, but its layout can be a pain when one wants to read actual commentary on verses. For instance, let's suppose that one wants to read what WBC says on Matthew 24:1. If you type this reference in WBC it will lead you to the beginning of the entire section that bears on Matthew 24:1-3. Before you can get to the commentary on verse 1, you'd have to scroll through a bibliography, a translation, translational notes, and then an extensive discussion of Form/Structure/Setting. 

The fastest way to get to the commentary part is to switch the navigation arrows to "verse" (highlighted in yellow in the screenshot below) and use the down arrow. It will skip over all these sections and take you right there.
