Hi Trystan.

So sorry it was my "night time" when you asked for specific information about the issues I was having.

I am pleased to let you know that whatever you did, the header seems to be back to normal now.

I still have the words, not pictures,for three of the emojis though.

Would you still like me to try to answer the questions you asked at your reply #21 ?

Trystan - It was Thursday I started getting messages saying that Rootschat wasn't safe and I was sending info over an insecure something or other  ::)  At the same time I lost the emojis and the graphics.  The header was still there and the poppy photo and Home, Forum etc.  I just ignored the unsafe message as I thought it was irrelevant.

I wasn't on the Home page, I was on various topic pages.  By Friday, everything was back to normal.

Trystan, quick question if I may?

On the FORUM page, is it my imagination, or are there many more Current Forum Topics now than there used to be?  :)

Hi Ruskie,

Yes but this change was made a long time ago, can not remember exactly when.

Regards

Sarah

I also had a temporary blip on the homepage about the time Ruskie was describing. When I'm quickly catching up with emails etc and have a moment, I check the RC home page without logging in. It was a sea of blue writing that once, rather like the 4 lines underlined that we have now after the first post and bottom post of each page, as I remember it. I didn't think to take a screen shot at the time as was a bit preoccupied and it was back to normal when I next looked. I did start to log in again prior to today but was called away, though noticed thankfully that annoying message about site security I'd had for ages each log in has finally gone ... yay!

Thanks for the right twiddling Trystan  :D mare

I know I'm a few days late but didn't see this thread before.
I too was getting problems last week with not being able to get onto the site - messages about security etc. To be fair, my Mac is getting pretty old now, and I thought it was something that had happened to the site so that I could no longer access it. (I have other sites, normally those with lots of whizzy graphics, which won't load. They are no great loss as they're usually shopping sites!).
I know I shall have to bite the wallet soon, and get a new computer, and I thought my time was up.
But thank you Trystan and Sarah, I now don't need to do that just yet,

Thankfully a couple of days later (sorry, not sure which day), all was well again and Rootschat now loads fine - and it is the https version. I use Safari (probably not the most up to date version Trsytan as this machine won't take an upgrade).

Once again thank you Trystan and Sarah.  :)
