iPad / forum problem

Post by Stephen » 05 Feb 2019, 11:22

Don't know what's going on today but I cannot get anything to work regarding this forum using my iPad, and only this forum is affected. All other websites work and respond fine.

I can open the home page ok, but as soon as I try to open a thread/anything, nothing will open. The only reason I am able to post now is because I am using my desktop pc.

I've tried refreshing the page and starting a new web link, but still nothing works.

Same with me.

On my iPhone and iPad (using Safari), I can log into the forum ok, but when I tap on anything once I'm logged in, nothing happens. It started last night.

I'm currently using Chrome on the PC, and it's fine.

Looks like an Apple and/or Safari issue. Fine on my PC and on my Android tablet. From which I just posted this.

Could it be because David dislikes Apple?

Not at all. If you care to read the original question you will see it was meant for you, not David. Maybe if you or Foxy (the Mods) had sent David the info of the then problem earlier when several people, not just me were pointing out the same issue then it may or may not have been fixed earlier........Just saying :angel:

One reason why me and Foxy are Mods is cos we, unlike some, wouldn't disturb David when he was needing to look after his old Mum

Unfortunately I didn't have my Crystal ball to hand so knew nothing of David looking after his mother, and why should I.

Ah!.... but unlike you and foxy Stephen didn't know David was looking after his mother......just saying :angel:

Joking aside.

Foxy and I cannot fix software related problems, nor can D63 in some cases. Added to that D63 cannot possibly be logged on 24/7 but his trained eye will generally pick up on a Topic raised as a ' Forum Problem ', I sent a belated PM in case he had missed it and purely by coincidence it became a non problem shortly afterwards.

Such problems are rare and we all need to accept that delays may arise regarding their resolution.

ps .. Good thinking, OL ( he's a right miserable sod that S------ isn't he ) :lol:
