Having done due diligence on this chrome Issue it seems that this is a known fault.
Websites that use frames (which are a vast majority) chrome won't refresh the frame this problem goes right back to 2009 (Try Googling it)
so until chrome get there act together I have put another button to open the forum in a new window

so now we have two buttons that do roughly the same thing only one makes life easy and the other over complicates matters so just get rid of the first one and we'll not confuse anyone and everything will be back to normal.

Think you mean minority there. Frames are evil

I've only ever used them on one site, and soon dropped them. As far as I can see they're only being used on this site to keep the navigation on the left - you can do this in CSS with much less mucking about and no usability issues. Happy to discuss by PM/email if you like.

I've been experimenting with CSS instead of frames but wasn't happening as quick as I wanted so reverted to using frames for the moment

If I continue to struggle I'll take you up on that offer

Just posting to say the revisions to the website look great. Love the background and the new layout. Well done to all concerned. :)

Hiya,

For those who don't often get time to browse the forums and have been looking at the same picture of the day for the last month, you might want to put the warning about bookmarks on the old website!! Oh, and I like the new site...

Bill - I hope the chaps are giving you the help you need with the fuel system!

Stuart
