Hiya

We have a search facility on our Bootle forum where you can easily find topics you have been following or would like to find more information about. Type in your keywords + hopefully this will help with finding that post you made ages ago. Avoid using the words "Street" and "Road" when seaching.. It will narrow down your seach to more specific keywords.

The link to our Bootle search facility is....

IMPORTANT INFO IF YOU ARE STILL USING INTERNET EXPLORER

One thing I've noticed if you are still using Internet Explorer as opposed to Microsoft's latest Edge browser with SSL enabled to visit our Bootle forum that is that there is an annoying message that pops up in a yellow box bottom of the web browser displaying the following message...

Only secure content is displayed - What's the risk - with a box saying 'Show all content'.

Image

The fix for this old browser issue is as follows...

Turn off "only secure content is displayed"

To do this click on the cog icon top right of Internet Explorer

Then click on Internet options...

A pop up box will appear on screen.

Click on the tab 'Security'

Custom level>>>Scroll down to: Display mixed content>>>Enable>>>OK

Restart IE.

The yellow pop up box should now stop appearing bottom of each page when visiting a different page.

It's annoying I know to have to do this if you are still using IE but it's a old web browser that has not been updated for ages however many people still use it using Windows 7. This fix should work though if you are still using it.

Hope this helps if anyone is having issues with Internet Explorer.

Cheers,

Mack

I've added a video link which displays how to do this...
