    Unhappy Unable to access "International café"

    Hi,

    I’m unable to access the thread “General Members Discussions/International Café”. When I try to access it my browser returns "Le site Web ne peut pas afficher la page. Causes les plus probables : 1) Le site Web est en cours de maintenance; 2) Le site Web présente une erreur de programmation. What can I do?

    Thank you!

    It's working fine- I can open it without and problem. Could you try clearing the cache in your browser- if you're getting the error message time after time and there's nothing wrong, then it is a likely candidate for the problem.

    Re: Unable to access "International café"

    I cleared the cache in my browser but it didn't help. Could it be the size of the thread (6 900 replies) that stops the uploading?

    Re: Unable to access "International café"

    Me again...

    I have the same problem with most of the Fun and games threads. It might be the high level security properties of the anti-virus component I have on my system. I think this is it. Very reliable protection, but less fun. (Don't make me say what I'm not saying.)

    Is it blocking cookies?

    Re: Unable to access "International café"

    I have deactivated the anti-virus component, cleared the cookies box, changed from Explorer to Firefox to access UsingEnglish.com, all this with no success at all. Could it be a problem with my forum account?

    Re: Unable to access "International café"

    Hi,

    It's an odd problem, and I've not heard of anyone else that has experienced this. Perhaps it is something to do with the length of the threads. Can you access other discussions in the members' area?
    I'm not a teacher, so please consider any advice I give in that context.

    Hi,

    I have the same problem with the Fun and games threads, but I can access all the other threads.

    Re: Unable to access "International café"

    Hi. It must be something to do with the length of the threads. I've split the International café discussion in two, so hopefully that will allow you to take part. See http://www.usingenglish.com/forum/ge...tml#post477122.

    Regarding the fun and games threads, is it all of the threads in that forum, or just the longer ones?
