Thanks, that was indeed the problem, although if I want to ignore someone I want to ignore just his posts, not the whole thread, even if he started it.

I have an option set so that threads started by ignored users shouldn't be hidden. However, it appears not be working. I am currently looking into it to see what the problem is.

That isn't acceptable Rumpy, we are an inclusive forum and your posts suggests that those most likely to be ignored would be male.
I take great exception to this, as it would have been just as easy for you to have used the word "their", it is obvious that you are misandry and we as a forum shouldn't have to accept it.
I'm actually starting to tear up writing this, it has so affected me, also the red has run dry. 😜

Quite correct, I should have said "it".

:cool:

Oops! We ran into some problems.

Your content can not be submitted. This is likely because your content is spam-like or contains inappropriate elements. Please change your content or try again later. If you still have problems, please contact an administrator.


Getting this error message when trying to post a reply in a conversation, or start a new one. Even a simple text message gives the same error.

I've tried using a different browser, different IP address and different device with the same result.

Any Ideas?

It looks like you were getting caught up in the anti-spam software we use. Sorry about that. I have whitelisted your IP address so hopefully you will now be able to post without any issues.

@Joe Blow not an issue or error but more of a wish.

When I read a post then click back in the browser the read post isn't removed from the list, can the software refresh the unread list via the browser go back button or are we restricted to refreshing it ourselves (click the new post button again)

Hi @Trav., I would just click the "What's New" button again and get into that habit. I don't think the software has any control over what happens when a user clicks the browser back button. From memory, that's pretty much how it works with all (or at least most) websites.

I will look a little deeper and see if anything can be done, but think it's unlikely.

Not a problem as such but is there a way to print a thread?
Would like to print a thread to pdf for reading offline when traveling or on the odd tablet.
Anyone has anything better than print screen?

I have been able to print to PDF one page at a time but I'm using a desktop. Right click in the space between the logo and the thread and then "Select All" and again right click and select "Print Selection." Don't know if it is possible to print the entire thread in one go.

There's currently no way to do this using the software itself, so the best way is probably going to be by using a browser extension.

I have seen this one mentioned elsewhere but haven't used it myself: https://www.printfriendly.com/extensions/chrome

Hi Joe, I haven't been able to log in for a few days now. Each time it fails. Somehow I've found a way of posting when not logged in which is quite strange though the search box etc., are all missing. All I can see is HOME - FORUMS - STOCKS - COMPETITION - WHAT'S NEW - LOG IN - REGISTER. I won't say how I post whilst not logged in. Can you help! - Noirua

Hi @noirua, I don't know but it might have something to do with the ASF program as @Joe Blow has not been able to get his competition ladder to be able to update for the last few days either.

I've noticed in this time (last few days) I've been getting a lot more ads in my face like the screenshot below. In ASF now the main focus is on the ads by the looks of things, I don't know if this is a glitch in the program or if this is the way it will be from now on. As you can see not much to see in regards to ASF material.

Hi guys, just an update. I am now aware of what the problem is with the competition page as well as login issues but will not be attempting a fix until the weekend as there may be some downtime. As the forums are quieter on the weekend, it is the best time to be working on any issues that may involve a significant disruption to service.

Regarding ads, yes there are some experiments running at the moment by a new company I am partnering with, so you will notice some strange ad sizes and ad locations for a short time. I am not happy with the way things are going today. There are obviously some teething issues.

I apologise for any inconvenience caused by the above.

There is an issue with the accept cookies popup also when using mobile platform.
(This problem has become permanent as of today, yesterday was intermittent.)

The accept & learn more buttons don't appear (I always just accept cookies).

After logging in, the cookies popup appears as as a blanked out line or 3, as per screenshot below.
(On the bright side, I don't have any issues inserting images now, but that has worked properly for a while now)

Morning all, I'm sorry about the ads appearing in weird places this morning. This is not a permanent change and I had no idea that they would be so intrusive, especially the one that keeps appearing at the bottom of the screen and needs to be closed manually.

I have asked that the integration be shut down until the issues can be sorted out. However, it may take a little while until that request is actioned, so please bear with me in the short term.

Apologies for any inconvenience caused.

Joe and debtfree, thanks for your responses. Will just post whilst not logged in. Unfortunately, I cant update posts or anything else though.

If anyone reads this who cant log in. Just fill in your post. Then click 'post reply' - ( it will fail ) then log in again. That will fail but your post will appear.
