Everything seems to be working fine now.
I started experiencing intermittant problems last Thursday with regards to only getting a white screen with the page not being able to download.Then from Saturday evening, i wasn't getting onto the boards at all
This morning i was able to enter the site but was getting 'debug mode' which was allowing me access to the boards / topics but not to any individual post.
Now that seems to have been cleared up so fingers crossed all the technical differences have been overcome now.
One moan though.......if these boards have been experiencing problems since last Thursday, why couldn't the main site have flagged up a news update informing visitors to the site that the message boards were having problems? They seem quick enough to flag up news when they have some product to flog but seem less on the ball when it comes to a public service announcement? :
