Anne's Site?
Hi All

Not sure if I'm posting in the right place but I can't get onto Anne's site. All I get is a blue screen (background colour) & nothing else. I don't think I'm the only one as I noticed that someone had asked Todd on his site if there was a problem (his answer was 'no').:roll:

Anyone else? Any ideas? Nothing has changed with my computer.

Hi Suz,

There's an existing thread on the problem here, which seems to affect some of us and not others.

FWIW, I too can get in just fine with Firefox, and get the dark navy blue screen of Fail with IE - either old versions of IE or the software IE utilizes seem to be the problem, as there's something on Anne's site that they're failing to deal with. If you want to get in before the problem's resolved, try a new browser or updating all your software...

Interestingly though, I've just had a peak at the source of the website, and there's some dodgy spam-style stuff in there under a <form> field... I am not an html expert, but the fact that it looks dodgy makes me wonder if it's what's making the website fall over practically at the start of its contents [i.e. background colour, but nothing else overlaid on the navy blue?]

Thanks for that. I'll have a go with firefox. My hubby has an up to date work laptop & he can't get in either (also using IE).

Re: Anne's Site?
You are very right, Kath, some spammer has made use of a security leak in the Word Press template (see that the stuff is put i the wp-content folder by using the post form method). That's one of the disadvantages maybe of using that kind of stuff; it's more meant to be used for blogs than to make websites.

I think Cheryl has already emailed Magpie, so they should already know what has happened.
