"Talk" links not working

(97 Posts)

I can't get to any of the Talk links - All Topics/Active/TIO etc. Not even from the homepage.

Can get to Active as it comes up on a new tab for me as one of the "most visited" sites. So can get to TIO and those I haven't hidden from Active but I was trying to get to OTBT.

Logged out & back in but still not working.

Am on laptop & Chrome.

I'm sorry to nag and all that, but any news on getting this fixed. I'm having trouble getting to different topics.

I could try big doe eyed looks at you if it helps. Or promise a bloody great bottle of gin.

Any news on this by any chance? Still not working for me.

Still not working for me? Any improvement for you, my cat? Still only loading half of topics page, hanging for 30 secs then crashing Silk.

Hello Tufty. Sorry you're still having trouble. Sadly, we think the issue with Kindles is separate to the other issues with links. We will have a good look for you but it may take us a while to pinpoint what's going on. Apols.

Great. Thanks for your help.

Working now smile

Tech (MNHQ) Fri 26-Apr-13 21:53:43

Hi, Thanks for that. Can you try refreshing the page and see if it's still a problem. I think the links should probably work correctly now.

Also experiencing what TallyGrenshall describes.

TallyGrenshall Fri 26-Apr-13 21:40:54

That is when I click the link in the box on the left. The bar at the top appears to be working

I'm having the same problem as well.

If I try to go to 'Active' from the homepage, then it talks about biscuits. If I am in a topic and then click 'Active' it will just take me back to that topic and not to all the active threads

Hi dogrosie, what problem exactly do you see - what are you clicking and what unexpected thing happens when you click? Thanks.

dogrosie Fri 26-Apr-13 21:21:44

I'm still having the same problem as ModreB is, if that helps...?

Tech (MNHQ) Fri 26-Apr-13 21:05:34

Hi ModreB, are the links OK for you now or do you still see a problem? Thanks.

ModreB Fri 26-Apr-13 20:15:06

And it was working fine for me up until today.

ModreB Fri 26-Apr-13 20:13:11

When I click the links, it takes me to the Topic page but not the thread IYSWIM. HTH

still working for me on Firefox (if it helps!)

MyCatIsAStupidBastard Fri 26-Apr-13 19:50:31

Hi Fiderer, just tried that and its still crashing. And i dont have any block pop ups on.

Tufty, glad to hear i'm not alone. Was starting to feel all lonesome.

Helen, still broken for me

<starts to feel a tad awkward about it all now>

HelenMumsnet (MNHQ) Fri 26-Apr-13 18:41:06

Gah! Think our fix has created yet more glitches...

We're on it.

ModreB Fri 26-Apr-13 18:06:04

Side links are not working for me again. Using IE.

HelenMumsnet (MNHQ) Fri 26-Apr-13 15:56:04

Hello. We have just released some fixes for this. Not sure if they'll extend to the Kindle, though.

Would be good to know if it's made things any better for anyone... <hopeful>

Hi, Kindle fire HD here and exactly the same problem as my cat. Using Silk browser, about a month ago the talk topics listing page started to freeze on loading maybe a third or halfway loaded, hang for about 30 secs and crash Silk. Has happened every time since but only on the page, weirdly. Very annoying and I blamed my poor kindle. Link had worked fine for the previous 2.5 months since I got Kindle at Christmas. Help would be great as have to go all rounds the houses to get anywhere!

Fiderer Fri 26-Apr-13 05:38:07

Cat wasn't for me either on my Kindle Fire. I do have "Block Pop-ups" as there are some sex ads that come up when my d watches videos.

Talk wasn't loading & the tab kept freezing. No links worked.

I could get to the homepage, then I clicked on one of MNHQ's links to Talk under a story (eg. today it's 'Have you had the MMR?)

From there I could get to Active, TIO etc. so I just bookmarked them and go straight there now.
