New site - bugs

I'm sure you're not having a senior moment, Gold1locks! If a forum page doesn't seem to be displaying properly, it's always worth refreshing the page (Ctrl+F5 on a PC, Cmd+R on a mac), to see if the problem is rectified. It could well be that the page hadn't loaded correctly the first time you viewed it.

Thanks for the tip about the bug with the 'Ignore' button - I've passed it on to the technical team.

Thanks for posting the video Pam. What an extraordinary garden you have - so much work! I've messaged you regarding the problem with downsizing your images, so we'll do our best to resolve that for you!

Thanks Gold1locks, I'll pass that on to the technical team to investigate. Some Chrome users have experienced problems with the radio buttons not appearing on our competition pages. The problem doesn't occur in other browsers, such as Firefox or Safari. It could be that the two problems are related, so before we identify the cause of the problem with Chrome, it might be worth trying to log in using another browser. If this doesn't work, and your currently active options don't display, do let me know.

Reply to figrat: I'm sorry to hear that you're having problems using the forum from your iPad. We'll do some testing to see if we can replicate the problem, and give you an update. You've probably already noticed that our videos don't play on the iPad. We're currently in the process of converting our 180+ videos to a format that will play on iPad, and we hope to complete this process in the next couple of weeks.

Reply to Gold1locks: Apologies for the glitch you're experiencing. Could I just check what browser you're using to access the site, and whether you're using a mac or a PC? This will help our technical team investigate the problem for you.

Reply to David K: You're welcome! I hope you're able to upload your images - do let me know if not.

Reply to Amazing2: did you try to upload an image using the small tree icon? Dragging an image from your computer won't work - you'll need to use the tree icon. Just click that, then, within the 'My computer' tab, navigate to the image on your computer you want to upload, click 'Select', then 'Upload'. Your image should then appear.

Reply to Salino: Lovely image! And thank you for sharing your advice on reducing image sizes.

Reply to lilylouise and David K: I'm sorry you've had problems uploading an image. Try saving the images you want to upload onto your computer (for example, to your desktop), then, click the small tree icon and, within the 'Your computer' tab, navigate to the file on your computer, using the 'Select' tool, and click 'Upload'. The image should then appear within your message. Do let me know if you have any further difficulties.

Best,

Reply to Gary Hobson: I'm pleased to hear that you like the functionality of the forum. Thank you for your comments about advertising. Like many community forums, we don't allow advertisements. This is because the purpose of the forums is for people to share information and ideas about gardening; if we permitted advertising, the forum would quickly become overrun with commercial posts, making it harder for people to navigate, and to find the information they're looking for. We do remove advertising posts when we find them, and message the posters to explain the reason. If anybody wishes to advertise elsewhere on the site, we're happy to put them in touch with the advertising team. You can view the full forum code of conduct here:
