Can't access the Classifieds

Postby Long Time Lurker » Wed May 22, 2013 07:33 am

Hi,
I'm having trouble accessing the Classifieds section.
Noticed it happening 3 days ago, and just assumed that something had been updated on the forum.
I have since followed the instructions to go into my Profile and select the correct settings, but I get a message that I am already registered to use the Classifieds section.

Any other suggestions?
Thanks. :wink:

I've managed to access it from another PC. It looks like it is specific to my work laptop.
Thanks for your help...

Same issue for me. I'm using Safari on an IPAD. I've cleared all my cookies and Internet history and powered off and back on and still no joy.
Any help grately received.
On a positive note I've not spent any money for a few days.

There has been a change to the way the classifieds section is displyed, which may be confusing 'some people'. :oops:
Previously, all of the Classifieds sub-forums were listed on the main forum Index.

You now have to click on the title 'Classifieds' to access the classifieds sub-forums.
The red warning text still appears - even if you do have access.
At first glance, it looks as if the classifieds have gone. It doesn't mention that you have to click on the title.
(It's inconsistent with the rest of the main forum index and with how it looked previously.)
