It seems to just be on the traditional scale, we're looking into it now but in the meantime the other scales are ok

Parts of the forum seem to be taking longer than normal to load up the regional section, in particular, is much slower than normal

Would recommend clearing your cache etc, all the forum uses the same db so it should all be much the same.

Hello Paul

I have tried to search to get the answer to this, but where is the link to explain about how many likes you can have and for how long before they reset - I have a feeling it maybe at my limit as I couldn't like anything, I remember reading somewhere, but cant remember where. Typical me. No rush in answering  - when you have five.

Thank you!

This may just be me but I'm not sure

I can't input/change any postcodes or locations on the main site under the weather forecasts or risk pages, it was working last night..

Happens in both Chrome and Edge, I've cleared cache and history but still nothing

May have been related to the problem SS mentions below, hopefully working again now?

May be something on your side I think, seems to be ok here - in Chrome, when you're on the page, if you can press ctrl+shift+i, then choose the network tab, then type in the location/postcode you're wanting choose, does anything come up as red inside the network bit?

Thanks, nothing showing in red

Does seem to be an issue my side, usually the dropdown would appear with the searched postcode a few seconds after I've finished typing, I can only get it to do this now if I left click in the search. I'll keep tinkering!

Very weird, are you running an adblocker perhaps? They can mess with pages in all sorts of weird ways at times.

Hi Team. Sorry if this has already been raised, but there seems to be an issue with tweets. The pics/charts in tweets seem to disappear leaving only the text. Then later on the pics/charts re-appear again. Of course the lack of the supporting visuals can completely alter the value of a tweet, leaving readers puzzled. Is it a forum issue or maybe a browser issue?
Many thanks.

I've been having exactly the same problem Very inconsistent. I hope Paul can fix this (not a clear cache issue).

I had an issue with tweets not showing correctly the text would show but the actual twitter box didn't it was an add-on I had installed on Firefox in the end if you have any extensions installed on your browser I'd suggest you try disabling them all and see if that helps

Thanks SS. I've checked my Firefox settings and I've no extensions added, but do have 3 plug-ins (see screen grab). Seems remote, but do you think it's one of them?

@Bring Back1962-63 David - do you use Firefox?

Those shouldn't really affect the displaying of tweets it is extensions which are more likely to cause issues which obviously won't be your issue as you haven't got them installed

I know it sounds daft but have you tried another browser like internet explorer or Chrome?

Thanks again SS. At the mo I'm seeing tweets OK (and it's the on/off nature of the problem that's puzzling). But next time they won't display I'll switch to MS Edge and see if they work with that browser.

One other thing you could try is type about:support in the bar at the top and click restart with add-ons disabled or refresh firefox both are on the same page

Just catching up here. Thanks to both of you for trying to sort out this problem. Gavin - you seem to be very knowledgeable about these things and you post a lot of tweets.

I used to have Firefox but had more problems with it than it resolved - so I removed it. My desktop PC still runs on Windows 7 (I have a large amount of business related programmes, files and documents on there and although many are backed up and I also use Drop Box not all the data can be re-imported easily). I have a Laptop that runs on Windows 10 for travelling and I use as a back up and for a stand by contingency If, or when, I get problems on my desktop. I still prefer Windows 7 to 10 but I know it gets far less support now and I'll have to bite the bullet before too long. I use Chrome as my main browser on both and also have Internet Explorer available too on both. 

I clear my cache at least once a day. I have no trouble accessing any other sites apart from twitter. Twitter is an allowed site within my Chrome settings and a trusted site in my Windows firewall. I tried deleting them and re-adding them and rebooting the computer (all recommended "help" actions) but the problem persists. Could the two problems be related? I get occasional access to the posted tweet charts on the NetWeather forum site but las with with Malcolm (Blessed Weather) it's pretty bad today. Most of the tweets on the tweet thread are not showing fully (some are okay!). The biggest problem is with certain types of tweet. Please have a look at Knocker's tweet on the Teleconnections Learning thread. it was the last entry on page 6. Sometimes there's a blank page, sometimes the text shows without the charts and when I press refresh, I can see the chart for half a second before it disappears. This problem started several weeks ago - never had it prior to that. Sometimes, everything is okay and more often than not it isn't!

I have just fired up my Laptop for the first time in several weeks to see if the same problem occurs from their too....and yes it does! The fact that I've got this problem on too different computers with different versions of Windows and Malcolm has the same problem, does make me think that it is either a twitter issue and/or a NetWeather issue. 

Does anyone else have this problem too?

I do hope that it can be sorted out soon, one way or another.

David

You mention ' Twitter is an allowed site' that is something I have never added and it is fine for me

As well as clearing the cache vave you removed cookies for twitter and netweather?

Something odd going on with the 10 day at a glance page, when I press full forecast it takes me to a garbled mess of a page. Happens on my pc, laptop and phone.

Fine for me too now, it was rather odd, especially since it was occuring between devices.
