Hello everyone,

Apologies for the problems with the forum over the weekend. I've passed your comments on to the support team and asked somebody to look into the cause of the fault. You should now find that the Advanced Editor is working OK - if you have any further problems do please let us know, either on this thread or by emailing us at website@gardenersworld.com.

Bbc Gardeners World Live at the NEC - humph!

Posted: 10/06/2014 at 17:01

Hello Tootles,

Thanks for your feedback on the show. We sent your comments to Sarah Sandys-Renton on the GW Live team and here is her response:

"We’d like to respond to your comments about the forthcoming show, as we’re sorry to hear of your disappointment.
The Gardeners’ World Theatre does cost an additional £2 for a seat because we invest in a very prestigious line-up of speakers. It’s an open theatre so is not out of view from everyone. We know that seeing a sit-down theatre session isn’t what every visitor desires, so it’s down to the individual to decide whether to book seats. It is the only ticketed theatre, and we have additional live stages which do not require booking including the Garden Solutions Stage, the Kitchen Garden Talks Tent and two demo areas called the RHS Potting Benches. All of these are free to drop in and out of at your will and have extremely good line-ups including Monty Don, Carol Klein and Joe Swift.
The Garden Walks are an exclusive chance to get a preview of the gardens with either GQT’s Matt Biggs or the Big Allotment Challenge’s Jim Buttress. Due to the nature of a walk and talk, these can only be managed in small groups for 20 before the show opens, so as with any such experience, there’s an additional cost.
I’m afraid that the £10 car parking is an NEC charge, and it is possible that they have a premium parking option. All car parks are serviced by shuttle buses should you require them. Shopping bags are simply show merchandise and are completely optional, as are all the added extras which we offer our visitors.
We’re really sorry that you feel misled, but would like to reassure you that all the extras are just that, optional extras. To take up, or not, at your will. On the whole they’re very popular which is why we run them year after year.
We hope that you have a great time, as it’s going to be a fabulous show this year. "

Hello everyone,

If you could avoid discussing/speculating about users who are new to the forum, that will help to maintain the friendly atmosphere that people value here. If the forum is to be useful to everybody, people need to feel comfortable posting.

The 'no bickering' policy still stands and we will delete threads if necessary.

Thank you.

Hello everyone,

I've checked this issue with a member of the development team who tells that they are hoping to implement a fix for this in the near future. There are no firm dates yet, I'm afraid, but please be assured we're aware of the problem and it's on the radar.

Problems with private messages

Posted: 11/04/2014 at 17:50
Hello everyone,

Those of you who aren't seeing the reply box in your 'Private messages', it's worth checking your 'forum settings' in the 'My settings' area, accessed by clicking your username, top right-hand corner of the screen. If you currently have 'Advanced editor' selected, choose 'Basic editor', then click 'Save changes', just beneath.

I tried this, and I could then see the 'reply' box in my private messages again. Hopefully this will work for you too, until the full editor is fixed. Not ideal, I know, as the basic editor doesn't have all of the options of the Advanced editor, but better than nothing if it works. Thanks for bearing with us while it's fixed.

I'm not in the office week commencing Monday 14 April, so won't pick up any private messages until my return. Rest assured the forum will still be moderated!
