    Can get into site by phone but just tried to on computer and it says "Database Error". Anyone aware of this?

    Is this what you see, Judith?

    Despite clearing my laptop's cache, I can't log in at the forum main page (for the last 3.5 days). I get a "database error" screen instead. Same happens when I'm logged in and click the 'forum' tab.

    I can login via any other page I've recently visited.

    I've heard from at least one other UK based member who is having the same problem.

    I just had an idea:

    I logged out and tried logging on through the main page while connected to a VPN (outgoing server in the Netherlands).

    Both log on and clicking on "Forum" have worked fine.

    Rum.

    Use Google Chrome but tried Microsoft Edge to see if it was Google and same thing happened.

    I switched off the VPN and tried to log on again at the home page: back to error message.

    Same again with clicking on "Forum".

    Weirder still and weirder.

    I hope it's nothing to do with this b*ll*cks:

    I have been seeing that too, but only in the last 2 or 3 hours.

    I also saw that on my phone. Sometimes can't get into forums or too slow. Anyone have that problem?

    The next time I'm locked out of the forum, I'll let you know right away.
