    Default unable to access theakforum. suggestions?

    Is anyone else having trouble accessing the ak forum?Since the site was updated I have had no success.I finally was able to attempt a login, then was informed that the system didn't support mobile devises. I am home uding the Wii, as always. Then found my way to the real login page. After clicking "login" the page will'not load and remains blank. Any idea as to what is happening?

    I can get in on my work computer and my cell phone (Android system)

    Edit: They have a thread about forum upgrade bug reports. I posted your issue in there.

    One reason many forums don't allow the use of free email accounts is that most if not all spammers use them to sign up to a forum to post their spam posts.

    There respose was this below: I told them you posted today at 12:48

    Are you sure that wasn't posted while we were performing the upgrade? Otherwise there should have been no problem for him to access the site, login or run a "forgot password" process..

    I was able to log in for a while after they changed software. Then it quit displaying messages. I can click to the thread, see the headers, footers, and sidebars, but the message boxes are empty. If I do a "view document source" I can eventually find some message text.

    Thank you, 00redZX-6R, for taking the time and trouble in trying to help me out.
    I have actually tried to gain access to the forum a couple times each day since the update. No luck so far.

    I am of a mind that it has something to do with using the Wii . If I can use someone's computer I will see if that will work. And I will report back and possibly confirm if the trouble is due to using the Wii.

    Sorry to hear that others have had trouble in the past. Could be due to server types/compatability.
    I'm not at all savy about computers, but that sounds probable to me. Hell, I'm so old I can remember as a kid waiting for black and white tv cartoons to come on in the morning on our Philco tv set. Sadly, I have let the last 55 years of technology slip by me without delving into it. Computers byte sometimes

    Thanks again.

    Unfortunately we do not have a Wii to do any testing with. That makes it very hard to troubleshoot the problem. I have enabled the "Mobile" broswer so he can try that skin and see if it works better for him.
