    I am posting this from my phone (Moto G6, Chrome browser) because I can't figure out why the site isn't working with my Lenovo Chromebook (Chrome browser).

    When on the Chromebook I can view threads, scroll through the chat users, and generally navigate through the various tabs of places on the site.

    I can not reply to threads, navigate the tabs on user profile pages, and possibly other things too, but that is what I've looked at for now.

    I have not gotten notification that I have been blocked in any way. I will see if I can reply to posts on my phone.

    Thanks for any trouble shooting help!

    I'd say it's something about the browser or its settings. I strongly avoid Chrome (and anything Google) so I'm not familiar with that one.

    Barefoot thanks for the reply. I"m wondering if I can try a different browser on this device (the Chromebook)

    No idea. I never used one. There are some here who do. AudryLeigh? I prefer big desktop computers. Give it a try I guess.

    FireFox is supposedly compatible with Chromebook. I used to be a computer guru, but suffered some brain damage and now I'm afraid to mess with things for fear they will never work again. That fear is founded in experience, so I just don't mess with anything these days. I barely have the nerve to change a faucet washer.

    Hugs,

    Something similar happened to me 3-4 days ago on Google Chrome. It basically looked like the site was down, and there was code instead of forum topics. And I really thought the site was down. It's good to know about the Google Chrome. May have to try another browser as well.

    The site was down. It just yielded a page of error codes. Very frustrating.
