I've had no problem getting on over the last couple days.
In fact, haven't had to double click to get on site.
Just checked and all fine.

Nothing has changed in my system and everything is updated so I can only assume that the webmaster has been tweaking again. No worries, just thought that Islander might be interested. If you can't access a site then you just don't go to it! 😀

Hello. We have completely redone VINOW as of a few days ago; the website itself that is and mostly back end things as well as some content. The loading issue; where some people had to click refresh, has been fixed.

We have not finished working on the message board - however it should work.

Old Tart and MS411; please let me know what you are having trouble with: the website itself http://www.vinow.com or the Message Board?

And what is the issue you are having exactly? What browser are you using?

Thank you.

This is what I get when I either click on "Travel Message Board" from here or access it from outside the site or try and access ferry schedule, taxi rates, etc. . This is just part of it - pages long:

Old Tart & MS411 - Sounds like you have no formatting, strange. Old Tart, what version of Safari? We will try to reproduce the error.

MS411 - what version of Chrome?

EastEnder - great.

Thanks.

The problem I'm having with VINow is that it doesn't post the orange flag for a new post or a new post to an ongoing thread. I'm using my android phone, so I'm not sure what browser I'm using.

What browser are you using?

Safari.

Safari is like dial up put ,Firefox or Chrome on and import your bookmarks. 5 minutes, your welcome.

If and when I ever have a problem with Safari I'll make a switch but no point "fixing" something that's not broken! No problem with any other sites at all.

I can now access the site but ditto the problem you're having.

You have to be logged in to see any of the below flags:
Blue check mark means read.
A blue flag means new unread post in that thread.
Once you are in the read view, all the new post will have a little red flag next to the title area.

If not logged in you will only see blue check marks on all the threads.

So, are you logged into the VINOW message board when viewing on your Android phone?

Thank you.
