The last 4 or 5 days I have had problems accessing the forum from the home page. The button (for lack of the proper term) at the top of the page, is missing. When open up this site I usually just see....merchandise or members but never all at the same time. If i hit the refresh in the overhead bar, i may or may not get the forum button. I am on several sites daily and this is the only one I have a problem with. Any idea's

Your computer uses 'resources'. Sometimes they get filled up, especially if you open more sites more frequently than your computer automatically deletes.

You can do this manually. If you are using Internet Explorer (that comes with Windows) look at the top bar. You will see a gear-looking thing called TOOLS if you wave your mouse over it (next to the star). Click on it.
Go down and click on Internet options. A new screen appears.
In the Browsing History, click on DELETE, and another window appears.

Usually, the first three options are all you need to delete (Temp files, history and cookies). When done, close your explorer and bring it up again. I don't think you need to reboot.

With more resources freed up, your computer should run much better and faster. Everyone needs to do this every once in a great while. - Dave

I don't use Chrome. Ray? Are you having problems with Chrome?

Sorry, I did not see this until now. When I go to the Squarebirds Home page, Chrome does not show hardly any of the menu buttons at the top. However, I can copy/paste in the url for the Forum and it comes right up. Like Dave, I do not use Chrome to access the Forum. I use Firefox specifically for the Forum all the time with no problems. Charlie you might try using IE or Firefox and see if you have the same problem. No one else has complained about Chrome so far.
