Anyone Having Computer Problems When Visiting This Website?

With what I've experienced for some time now and after reading newly posted replies in the thread (Leaving Forum Due to Comp Probs), is the sole reason why I’m starting up this new subject thread. So I ask everyone to please provide feedback and an explanation as to what youÂ’re experiencing pertaining to computer problems, errors, etc., whenever you login to this community forum. After joining this group back in January this year, under my other username of ‘batman’, for a good while, I would see these little diamond icons . What are these? The ones you see to the right of the subject topics (chatting not working for me), are to inform you that this is either a brand new subject topic, or an older subject topic, which you yourself have yet to see. Once you have gone to and have seen the subject topic and go back to the listing of topics, the little diamond icon

RE: Anyone Having Computer Problems When Visiting This Website?

on my computer the site constantly refreshes itself, sending blue across the url space every 15 seconds or so. it's a little distracting. i haven't tried chatting, but i'm not particularly interested in chatting. i can't see all the options you mention. i have the same problems in firefox, safari and internet explorer. i'm on a mac - so maybe that's the problem.

Yeah, the site keeps refreshing itself on my computer too. Same idea like I was trying to describe, where it happens no matter if I'm on or off this site. It'll happen even if I'm not even online.Looking for feedback for anyone else too.Bruce

Hi Bruce, I have no problems at all with this site or any other.Just wanted to reply.

Re: Anyone Having Computer Problems When Visiting This Website?

I just started using a few days ago. I don not have any url or web page issues. I'm running Win XP with IE 8.0

I do have problems with the Diary though. There is nothing to select when using the drop-down menu for types of siezures.

Re: Anyone Having Computer Problems

When using the epilepsy diary, you need to first go the About Me section and enter your seizure types. Then when you go to enter an event into the diary, you will get a drop down of all the events you have entered. If you had a new type of event, there is a link to click to "enter a new event".

Give this a try and let me know if you are still having problems.

 By the way, the top entry here about computer problems was made 5 years ago and isn't pertinent now. There have been many changes in website since then. Let us k now if you do have computer problems though so we can track anything down.

Take care,

Help , can't access my saved stuff. It is always hiding behind my login name and account management

Re: Anyone Having Computer Problems When Visiting This Website?

OOPS. its ok now

Re: Anyone Having Computer Problems When Visiting This Website?

I've had no problems while using my computer, but I also do not have a diary. To get off-track here, I think it would be a good idea for anyone who adds a coment to a discussion could find out if anyone else has added a coment. In other words, you send your comment, and an email is sent to you to click on and find out others' responses.

This occurs when applying to a comment on Epilepsy Foundation. I am a member of two groups there: Lamictal Users and Temporal Lobe Epilepsy. It is convenient to not have to go to the site to see if there are more responses. 

Can the person who moderates these discussions look into it?   

Re: Anyone Having Computer Problems When Visiting This Website?

Good question, yes you can be notified to responses to threads you have posted. Go to your account settings and you can set it up there. Let me know if any problems.
