Perhaps the new mini menu will solve this for you.
Click the little smartphone icon, top left of nav to engage mini menu:

There are usually consequences for going too close to the edge :!: but the Mini Menu should also save you from that, Gameswat. ;-)

Thanks for trying Mr PM. Using that facility the clock hides most of the menu, the arena is just visible. Clicking on it brings up lots of colourful squiggly bits. Scrolling down I arrive at Arena but the same result - the last two EH not obtainable, now with a completely blank screen.

OK 13rebel, I've had a few other reports of this problem, but in all other cases deleting cookies and deleting cache seems to have cured it.
Having tested on Internet Explorer, Firefox, Chrome and Android, I can't replicate the issue, but I have a theory... :idea: and have made some changes based on this.
Please let me know if it worked.

Mr PM, your link takes me to Firefox - do I need to load Firefox (gulp!) As previously stated, I am on Windows Vista and Internet Explorer. I had previously emptied the cache. I enclose photos showing the page I get to delete cookies, browsing history etc, which has been clicked on. Having clicked on the smartphone I have lost the vertical blue bar on the left of the screen so am unable to access any of the sub menu - the blue bar shows for a second or two and then disappears. I am left with a white circle with two brown bars through it top left of screen which won't go away. :cry:

Sorry about that bad scene man. Let's see...

Nope, I gave you the wrong links - forgot you were on IE. What version of IE, by the way?

Thanks for the pics - it gives me something to go on. Looks like there's more than one issue here. First, there's a problem with z-indexes (how one element of the page is layered on top of another). I've had a go at fixing this, but again you might have to clear your cache to see it. As to whether it will have made any difference... :!?!:

That's more or less what should happen, only it's not displaying correctly. The white circle should have three horizontal bars in its centre which you click to access the mini menu.

Hi Mr PM, I am on IE 9. After looking to see which version I am on the verticle blue bar was reinstated. !PUZZLED! I then followed your link to clear the cache but alas it's still the same except there is a white crinkly square about the size of a postage stamp in the centre of the blank screen.[clicking on it does nothing]Just in case this has some mystic meaning to you I have not retried the smartphone method-should I now try it? Sorry if this is causing you headaches,Tony.

Can you also try deleting cookies. (The relevant one is the pennymachines.co.uk cookie called "style").

No harm in trying... !?!

No worries - I had a headache already. :sick:
If you get fed up with this nonsense, a solution might be to try Firefox. !OMFG!
But I'd like to get to the bottom of it, if possible.

'Just realised that despite saying in a previous post that I would include a photo of my 'delete stuff ' page,I had failed to do so.So I presume cookies had already been deleted.
