Unable To Open Links

Hello All,

I can`t open any of the links in any of these forums, has anyone any suggestions why this is, and ideas about what I can do to put this right.

"can't open any of the links in any of these forums"

So how did you manage to post a new thread then?

Which links specifically? Adverts, links in posts, change page to different section? Please give an example so we can try it out and see if it is 'just you' or if links are broken on webpage.

What happens when you click on a link?

Sorry Guys, Links in Posts, but I have To say that seemed obvious to me and surely posting a thread is different from trying to open a Link within one.

You haven't mentioned which browser, whether you have any add-ons running, adblockers etc.

If IE try resetting it the defaults.

Hi Woolwell,

I don`t use any other forums and I am useing IE9 with no Addons running.

This problem has been for the last three days in the Forums on the PCA site.

I just love that "Obvious one, have you tried rebooting to see if that works" from Buteman.

"I don`t use any other forums" but do the links work on other webpages eg BBC News?
