    @TES_Rosaline nope, it still doesn't work. I'm using an iPhone 6s.

    @Landofla I'll have someone in the office find and test on an iPhone 6s tomorrow - there is no reason it shouldn't be working, but we'll see if we can get to the bottom of it.

    Hello @suzepotter.

    Sorry to hear that you are experiencing problems with posting on the forums.

    I've checked your account and you should be able to create a new thread.

    Is the 'Post New Thread' button still missing from the MFL forum landing page:


    Have you tried to clear the cache and cookies?

    This often removes any temporary technical issues with the site.

    Are you using an iPad or another tablet? Please can you let me know the brand? What browser are you using?

    The site usually works best in Chrome. More details can be found in the link below:


    Thank you.

    I'm having two problems that have just started in last few days (have you updated something). I'm using chrome on android...

    1. The login button has disappeared from the top right of the page. When i go to the tes logo with the little arrow on the top left and select log in from the drop down menu there it takes me to a page not found!

    2. This isn't helped by the fact that if my phone is in portrait mode i can see the tes logo with the arrow to select the drop down menu. If i change to landscape then i just get one of the new tes logos that doesn't have a drop down menu.

    The only way to get around this at the moment is for me to use 'desktop mode' in chrome.

    @knocker that should be fixed now. Please let me know if it's not.

    Nope still not working.

    Now when I go to the tes log with the dropdown arrow and go to login it doesn't actually do anything (before it went to an error page).

    In landscape mode the logo still changes and there is now a dropdown arrow but when you click it it doesn't open the dropdown menu but instead redirects to www.tes.com

    @TES_Rosaline since the TES logo rebrand I'm having exactly the same issues as described above. I click on my avatar and no drop down list appears, which means I cannot access alerts etc. Clicking on the new TES logo also does nothing except freeze the page. I'm using Chrome on my iPhone 6. Can you help me please.

    Well I can log in ok but as from mid-morning today, clicking on my avatar at the top does nothing except make the web page jump a bit. Clicking on my avatar on a previous comment works fine and takes me to my profile page. Any ideas?

    And checking on Chrome on my laptop I get no alerts there either so I now have no alerts on chrome or phone browsers. This only started today, so can the geek who changed something change it back?

    Same here. No alerts available and clicking on avatar does nothing except freeze the page or 'jump' the page a bit. Useless!! Very annoying when wanting to check if you've been quoted or mentioned in a thread. Please, please sort this out @TES_Community @TES_Rosaline it's very annoying. I don't even get a log on option top right anymore and have to find convoluted ways to log in and out. What on earth has happened?

    If it helps the techies looking into this, the old standard default browser in Android and the Firefox for Android browser both work fine for me. But I can't get the Chrome for android to work properly here. I can't even access the login screen

    What techies looking into this. No one is responding. :(

    Hence my post. It may be a complex one and ruling out possibilities may help to speed up the process

    I hope so. I'll have to set an afternoon aside to check all the alerts I can't access.

    Just an acknowledgment that our tags and posts have been seen and that they are trying to address the problems would be nice though.

    I wonder if I use a very naughty word if I'd attract attention to our plight via the moderator process. ( evil laugh..., slightly maniacal now as I'm having to resort to logging in and out of the site by piggybacking :rolleyes:)
