Each time I log in I get a "this page not available screen which I can't get rid of, if I click the link for forums I can post but the N/A page still overlays it. Any ideas?



Can you screenshot and attach to here please Dave?

I really didn't like it at first!  Using Internet Explorer 11 I was getting a very "vertical" view, which I guessed was the web site thinking it is displaying on a tablet or phone.  Having swapped to Chrome the "new" site is a similar layout to the "old" one.  I remembered setting "compatibility view" in IE 11 at some time in the past, and with that turned off the layout is restored to normal.   It's all looking good now.  :)

One feature that is missing (or seems to be) is the ability to go to the first unread post in a thread.

I found this very handy, especially on the long threads such as the Adventures of Orca and Lady Patricia's 2015 days afloat.

not a major issue and I'm sure we'll soon get used to it

Well, I'm sorry to rub it in, I am having no trouble whatsoever and this coming from a complete Techno-phobe lol, just like to let Jaws and Jonzo know and I am sure I am not the only one that really appreciates the work and effort you put in for this Forum and well worth it, it is too


As for you Eric, it's not so hot here in East Sussex but I could still do with  frickin cold beer anyway lol ;)
