My profile was messed up & I couldn't edit anything......until a freakin light bulb went off in my head......I turned off my router & modem for 5 minutes.......turned it back on, & BLAMMO, no more problems. I don't know if it was dumb luck or whatever, but everything works fine now.

THOSE WHO REFUSE KNOWLEDGE ARE DOOMED TO FAIL.

WATER CHANGES ARE THE LIFEBLOOD OF THIS HOBBY. IF YOU DON'T BELIEVE SO OR SIMPLY DON'T FEEL LIKE DOING THEM, RE-HOME YOUR FISH, SELL YOUR AQUARIUM & FIND ANOTHER HOBBY, AS YOU WILL FAIL UTTERLY, COMPLETELY, & MISERABLY.

Jack, you're not alone. I once had a problem where I couldn't listen to online SDR (Software Defined Radio) on any of the computers in my house, nobody else had a problem, even people coming to my house with their laptops didn't have any problems. Then the time came to renew my security software, I installed the new version and everything started working. You will be amazed what can screw things up sometimes.

in most cases an "ipconfig /renew" and "ipconfig /flushdns" will do wonders. also when visiting a website hitting ctrl + F5 will sometimes help.

Hey boss have you by any chance had a chance to look at if we are tapatalk compatible?? i know your still working on ironing out all the wrinkles on the new site but the new version that suppose to be mobile friendly isn't so much. I've tried 5 different mobile browsers and none of them scale the pages right, anyone with a sig picture there post is cut off and unreadable and the buttons on the bottom (quote, reply, edit) are also cut off and the site is running very slow and jumpy on mobile. I've tried everything possible to fix this but to no avail, honestly for me the site is almost unusable on mobile it took me 45 min to post just this message and without a desktop computer i can't really remain part of this community :(

here's a screen shot showing the scaling issue, i think the lagging and jumpinesx is also caused by the site constantly trying to rescale the page cause the browser is constantly "working"

Sorry that you don't like the new look website. There are two things you can look at when it comes to website design, one is fancy layouts, the other is simplistic layout that gives the user an easy time when browsing the website. Because the majority of people who use our website are looking for information, the website has been designed to make their stay as easy as possible without lots of different colours, flashing banners etc. People come here to read our articles, it is my job to make sure that they are able to stay on the website and continue reading without ending with headaches and sore eyes, if you can see where I'm coming from? So the layout may look rather basic, but there is a reason for it. And as for the forum, well, that hasn't changed a single bit

I would like those of you who use Tapstalk to please visit our other website and test out the forum. I have installed a plug-in that is supposed to allow people who are using the system tapstalk to use the forum. However, I'm not sure if it's working.

The forum is set to a width of 700 pixels, therefore if you use a signature which exceeds this you will have problems seeing everything on the screen, it will probably overlap. So I would ask everyone to make sure that any images placed in their signature are less than 700 pixels. I think it's probably safer to make them more around five or 600
