    Hi folks

    We wanted to let you know about a few changes we’ll be making over the coming weeks to help keep the forum secure. Some of them may affect the way you use the Forum.

    Switching the Forum to HTTPS (unsecure url message)

    Some of you have noticed the phrase “unsecure url” in your address bar. We’re working now on switching the forum to HTTPS, which will mean that message will no longer show, and aiming to go live with it in April. This will involve turning the forum off for a few hours overnight while it’s set live. We’ll let you know closer to the time when this will be.

    Turning off old forum versions

    Work to switch the forum to HTTPS needs to be done on all versions (skins) of the forum. To reduce the time and resource it takes to make the switch we need to switch off some of those old forum skins and migrate the forum members who are on them to a newer skin (the one prior to the new blue skin). This will affect around 1,000 of you. You will still be on an old, green version of the Forum and will, of course, still be able to choose to switch to the newest, blue version if you decide to. We’re sorry this may affect your use of the Forum. Our priority, though, has to be the security of the site.

    Facebook login

    Facebook is making changes to the way Facebook log-in works in April. At this time we’ve taken the decision to remove the ability to log into the Forum via Facebook.


    Let us know if you have any questions.

    EASY to change layout, link in signature
    I've put Painkillers link in my signature so everyone who sees my posts can become aware there are other layout options that are easy to use. I didn't realise there's such a quick and easy solution for nearly all the browsers including Chrome, Firefox and Safari. Whilst looking at max width, I also noticed the declutter style so have applied both and it's now so much easier to skim read through and much less scrolling, saving potential RSI! THANK YOU PAINKILLER


    MSE Andrea, it's such a simple change in the code for your web developers, just change 1000px to 100pc which changes the width from pixels to percent and therefore automatically resizes to whatever screen ANYONE is using, it even looks like it could be a typo from the developer! Surely this can be done to please EVERYONE regardless of screen size as then we'll all benefit and much less bad feedback regarding the new site design?

    Please consider this...

    Thanks Tigs for posting about Painkiller's fix. All working and back to stretchy! The large amount of white space was really annoying me!

    As for links in signatures. I expect they were deleted for being against forum rules
