Hi guys,
Whenever I have answered a topic on here, I then have to press the backspace key twice to get me back to the EPZ home page. Is anyone else having this problem? If so, anyone know how to get back to just one click.

This happens to me sometimes and not just in the forums - I just click on the ePHOTOzine logo (top left) to get back to the home page.

I had this problem when I used IE. Happened on several sites.
By holding down the "Go back" arrow to show page history, there were blank, hidden FB pages, almost like a tracking page, inbetween the actual site pages.
Click once and you only go back to the invisible page, click once more and you go to the page you wanted.
Weird, as I am not on Fęcesbook. All stopped when I ditched IE.

I had a similar problem on another site where my return key would not work when writing a post and the solution may work here.

The explanation given was that the website may not have been written for the version of internet explorer that you have on your computer so bits and pieces go awry. On the IP address bar (the one that reads https://www.ephotozine....) you have a magnifying glass icon, and a refresh icon (circular arrow). If there is a discrepancy between the IE versions you will also see something that looks like a grey page torn in half horizontally. If you click on that 'torn page' so that it turns blue it activates a compatibility mode and may solve the problem.
If there is an auto-update to the IE it may resolve the issue and the 'torn page' icon will disappear

We have found in the past that the problem is IE security settings changing. Go into IE and reset your internet settings, specifically the one which deals with 3rd party cookies to the default. Sometimes updates to security software can cause these changes.
