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.

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.

Morning lads. :)

As you probably know, the site crashed last night during an update.
I was working on it into the early hours, but there still seems to be a problem with our Black style.
Various faults

I've uploaded this style for now.
Does it seem to be working fine, or has anyone seen any other problems.
