Now ask your question in clear English without "txt" speak>>>> My forum http://talkinggeekonline.com/  is not loading for people using internet explorer.  This has only happened tonight.  I have tried it myself and I just get a black screen.  It works fine using google chrome and firefox.  Is there a reason for this?
The Cynical Hermit

Apparently the problem has occured within the last 6-7 hours.  During this time I had tried adding code in from google webmaster tools which didnt work so I took them back out.  Can someone look at the codes for my header and footer to see if i've deleted something I shouldnt have or left something there.  It's to much of a coincidence for it not to be something I did.

Sometimes people can forget that this support forum is for MFF forums, ie if there is a problem with your forum working our end then come here for advice etc to fix it.  Quite often members of the MFF support team and indeed members of the community are kind enough to help out with external things such as html etc.  This is fine to ask for help but to demand it and then give the sarcasm when you didn't receive the help you were looking for is in my opinion a little much.  Especially as 24 hours haven't even passed since your original post.  For a free services support forum I think the standard here is remarkably high in all aspects of the support including the 'extras' such as this.
myff admin

Might I also point out that this was posted late Friday night, and was a complicated html question where basically the only way to solve it is a lot of fiddling about.
Do you really expect free support to deal with that within hours on a weekend?
Gosu71

On the other hand the Cynical Hermit fixed the problem himself, so going along with the 'help you to help yourself' idea then he should be applauded for doing just that.
