Hi, is anybody else having problems with this site? I can't see photos or post them and no videos either. I reported the issue some days ago, but no advise. Also looks like no bodies posted on the forum, or if they have, I'm not seeing them.

can you see these Taff?

forums have been very quite lately..

I can see the post but just blank squares where there are possibly photos.
Thanks Tim

interesting, they show for me.

Could be your device, have you tried reloading or clearing cookies? I’m on IOS & everything’s usually amiss, but lately things have been working for me?

I can see the post and pictures.Timothy, nice layout.

Hi, thanks everyone.
Brian, what do you mean, reload and clear cookies....?? what does one do? Thanks.

If I click on those photo squares it says....connection for this site is not secure, and under that it says... storage ning.com sent invalid response.

Reload is that circle arrow icon on the tool bar of every browser? Sometimes that helps, those problems usually happen when the links are having trouble loading, or in this case, the browser doesn’t recognize the link or can’t authenticate of the page license? If the Administrator has been made aware of it, he will pass it on, then all we can do is wait for Ning to resolve the issue? 

Hi, thanks Brian, I had done the relouad business I just did not know that is what I was doing, no joy. Sorry to be a pain, what are cookies and how do I find them to get rid of them on this site.
Hi agin, well I found out how to do the cookie thing,and did it. Rather proud of myself, but nothing changed.
However I have noticed a few things.
At the moment I'm using Chrome on my iPad
The CBG site comes up completely black at the top
Scroll down and it is completely white
Text is visible and product advertising pictures but nothing else

Also, the buttons along the top of the Reply to This box are missing.
Tap on the box, it turns yellow and I can type and post.

I will try a photo her now......ooop can't do that as the buttons are missing.

See you when I see you guys, I have reported this.
Stay safe Taff.

 Hey Taff, 

 I don't own an iPad but I get that once in awhile on my PC. . I do not know what causes it, but I have three browsers on this puker and if i have that problem, I use a different one. Issue usually resolves itself within hours. I doubt that helps, but hope it did. 

Hi Ray, while some lacquer is drying I thought I would try my PC again....same crap.
I use chrome on the iPad and Windows 10 on the PC, no joy from either. I'll something else. Thank for the suggestion.
Looks like I cant use the Edit feature either.
On the PC I use Microsoft Edge.
