Website Errors and faults

The site has moved to https to increase security and privacy. You can upload any picture you like to the server and use it as your avatar.
Ah that's a good move. Might possibly explain why I've had trouble getting the site working on my phone (Chrome on iPhone) if it's going to an old bookmark - although you'd think it'd redirect...
Site isn't opening for me on any mobile device even using the https link.

Not sure why that is, seems like the mobile version may be broken.

Yeah, I don't think I've ever logged on to the mobile version successfully unless I had Gary Madine typing it in for me... :D

It won't open in a browser on a tablet or phone for me. Only been like this since the last couple of days. Opens fine on a desktop or laptop. Mobile and tablet...just get a blank white screen.

Sort of works on mobile chrome for me but has been regularly crashing the last few days.

Seems better today.

See an earlier post on the previous page about https. However it is short on detail on how to do this (for old folk).

I just reuploaded my avatar – it was still there when I went to User Control Panel then Profile then Edit Avatar. Had to do a bit of fannying around with the size though.

Just a question (from one of "the old folk) but why can't we upload from " My Images/Pictures as in the past. Saving an image to them and then uploading from there was so simple?

It should be redirecting. Can you post the url that doesn't please so I can take a look into it. Thanks.

I've had the exact same problem. I also can't get it to load the site from a browser search on 'the wanderer' and clicking the link from my iphone.

If I simply go into my browser on my phone and google "the wanderer bwfc" it presents the https link as the top hit.

However, the page does not load. Same on my ipad.

^^ Thanks DJB, but it wasn't actually Avatars I was querying, but any pictures saved to "My Pictures". There's a facility for uploading url's, but not pics from our own files (My Pictures) into a post message. Am I getting something wrong?

Click on the + Attachments at the bottom of the post.

This will allow you to upload an image and include it.

It is only available in full editor mode not the quick reply.

Are you still having this problem, because I am. No problem on the laptop or tablet, but anything made by Apple just doesn't want to know.

Any chance you can have a look at this when you get a minute please DJB? Cheers!

Can you arrange it that when someone types in the word 'Madine' we see a photo of a dray horse instead please, DJBlue? :)

On my iPhone, I use a browser called Dolphin and this site loads fine. However, when I try to open it in Chrome or Safari I get the same message as the others that the 'page cannot be reached'.

It isn't a problem because I think Dolphin is better but I thought I would share my experience.
