and I explain myself:

When entering a band's page on PA there used to be an active link where it had the country's origin

is it possible to have this back?

thanks

I agree with you. The other day I needed some geographical data to include in a review I was writing, and found out the active 'by country' link had disappeared. Personally, I think it was very useful, especially when dealing with 'smaller' countries (my search involved Puerto Rico).

In order to see what bands we have by country, you only need to type a country's name in the site search engine. Here's what you get for Argentina for example:

Progressive Rock & Related Bands/artists from ARGENTINA


This kind of link appears for all countries but it's usually not the first link in the list. However it's always on the first page of results. The strange thing is that there's no entry for Puerto Rico.That either means that:
- we have no bands from Puerto Rico, which I doubt
- Puerto Rico is not a country, which I doubt Wink (maybe a translation for Rico's Port? Tongue)
- there's a technical issue.
