    I have a new laptop with Windows 8 on it. I am unable to access my own forum at www.megansmadams.com/forum.
    I can get to it from all my other PC's that are running XP or Win 7.
    I have tried using a proxy and can get into the forum but cannot post.

    Any ideas?

    I cant check your problem, without logging in, which I do not care to do, but I can see that there are some restrictions, before you can post. Obviously, there is something in the cookies on your other machines that sorts this.
    BBut it occurs to me that, if you log in, but go straight to your profile and update it, you may find your registration is renewed and the site restrictions are removed?
