    For at least 12 hours (perhaps longer) it has been impossible to reach the forums by going to www.hotcouponworld.com. Instead, you just get to a bunch of advertisements and nothing to click which will get you to the forums.

    I was only able to make this post by looking through my emails for a link to a thread in which I had posted, click on that, and then go from there to the "Forums" link.

    That same thing happened to me on either Tues or Wed. I have no idea how long it went on. I got online and checked email, then HCW. I got the page of ads, with no link to the forums. About an hour later, when I checked again, it worked just fine.

    Same happened to me yesterday. I just changed my shortcut for HCW to the forums page and now it loads there and I just click on new posts.

    I have the same issue. I emailed Tammy and Dave about it. I can only access forums through tabs in an email.

    I reach HCW through a bookmark, so I didn't even notice the problem. That is worrisome though. www.hotcouponworld.com/community will take you to the forums as well if you can remember to type all that in.

    Dave fixed the problem. Let me know if any of you still can't see it.

    So you don't see "forums" near the top right side of the page? Did you try clearing cookies?

    Okay, I now see the "forums" on the page. The funny thing is that I had How Coupon World bookmarked and until now I was always brought directly to the forums. I also did not have to log in -- now I do. Still, this is small stuff and I am glad that things are fixed.

    Somebody else began a thread a few days ago asking where all the members have gone. I replied by saying that when the software was changed there were a lot of problems and many just gave up and stopped posting here. I hope this does not have the same result.
