Help, I can't access the Traders Directory
« on: April 18, 2008, 08:41:34 pm »

I have a new laptop running on Vista using Firefox. When I click on the Traders Directory link I get a blank screen with "Done" in the bottom left hand corner.
It is Friday and I am celebrating the weekend but it happened on Wednesday when I hadn't touched a drop.
Colin assures me that the link is working.
Any ideas will be appreciated.
Thanks,
Keith

Can you try accessing with Internet Explorer Keith? I know that Firefox has some issues with Vista which I assume you are using if your laptop is new.

Your right, it doesn't work in Firefox!!   Isn't weird?!?!?

As a temp fix use this link - http://www.modelboatmayhem.co.uk/Links/traders_directory.htm

( Seems be something to do with capital letters in the page name. )

Are you using XP Martin?

Firefox does have problems with Vista.

XP - not brave enough for Vista.

Keith, Martin,

See if it works by cutting and pasting the link in Firefox. That will help narrow down the problem.  I can't find anything on the Simple Machines Forum website.

Thanks for the responses, I'm glad it's not my fault entirely.
Will try the suggestions when I get a moment.
