Having Problems with the Forums?

Piano Forums

If you are having problems registering, posting, or seeing things you think you should be able to see, please see these possible solutions...

There could be a few different reasons you are having trouble ...

1.) Your browser security is set too high. In Internet Explorer go to: Tools/Internet Options/Security. If it is set to high, try setting it to medium.

2.)The date could be set wrong on your computer. If you have the time showing in the lower right corner of your computer desktop, mouse over it and see what the date is. I've seen instances where it was set for some date in the future. This confuses the browser and the software for the forums. If it is wrong, double click over the time and bring up a box that lets you set it to the correct time/date.

3.) Your browser isn't set to accept cookies. Cookies are used by shopping carts and forums like ours to maintain what is called a session. See the following instructions for setting your browser to accept cookies.
