Just the same small issue on phone & tablet, fine if you hold the screen sideways/landscape but logo doesn't quite fit if you hold it upright/portrait. Gets chopped off at the second letter "e" in the word "Internet".

Not sure if you can see that or do anything about it!

Yeah, my phone screen stops at the end of betting forum.
I'm not going to worry too much about it just now, as I know I have the settings right to replace it with something that fits better. :thumbs

I couldn't log on this morning. The page wouldn't even load for me.

Other sites I tried were OK.

Strange mate

Afternoon gents.
I hope everything is starting to settle down on the board after the forum update. I realise some people are having trouble with the banner at the top of the board not showing properly
but that's mainly a browser cache issue, if you are still having trouble either post up on here, or drop me a line, and we'll get it sorted out.

We'll give that a few days to settle down
As from Sunday we will have two styles to choose from on the board, the black and orange style, and the prosilver style which is pale blue.
You'll be able to alternate between them whenever you want.

To change the style, you 'll go to top right and click your username/user control panel/Board preferences/choose Black or Prosilver.
Again any problems, just let me know.
Board styles are now available.

The message at the top of the board index has been changed to
Simply the best Horse Racing Betting Forum on the Internet
I'm doing some Search engine optimisation, and I just want to gauge any new visitor numbers.

In hindsight Col, was it wise blocking the account of Mr V.Putin ;x;

Hi lads

I'm back on the site using the chrome browser.
We changed over to a secure site yesterday through the hosts, and it seems that all our browsers are still pointing to the old link.

The new link is

In on phone so far. Think I'm qualified for a job at GCHQ now on the back of this. I know we wanted some extra privacy but this is taking it to extremes! {8

Sorted now. Realised there's a sign in option at the bottom of the page that the link posted by Col takes you to. I was going to that page then trying to access a thread which took me to a sign in screen. No doubt I'll have to remember how to sign in to load of other websites as a result of all the stuff I've had to clear though! Steps that worked for me (using Chrome):

Go to link posted by Col
Access settings
Go to clear browsing data and,,, clear browsing data!
Then sign in at the bottom of the page.

Award self a treat for perseverance! :)

But if it had been any other site, you would have just thought. I'll leave it and come back later :)

The racing and Private information forum is closed to everyone but subscribed members.
New members do not get trial access.
Subscription for members already here stays at £5 for the year

The new subscription is set at £5 per month for any new members
This is in part to keep the information posted secret, because £5 for the year would not keep any snoops out.
