We apologise for the current issues that some users are still experiencing. You may find the information below helpful.

Creating an account

When users try to create a new account, they get a blank screen when they submit their email and password. The account is created but is disabled and no email to verify the account. Please contact us via online chat and we can enable your account. 

Forgotten password

When users submit their email for a password reset it shows an error message saying there is a problem with the request. If you ignore the message and click submit again 2 or 3 times eventually it works (you have to wait for it to work). A message is displayed to say 'successful' and you should receive a verification email with a link to reset your password.

Resetting password

Some users on resetting their password are also getting an error to say 'there was a problem resetting the password', but it appears that despite the error message, the password is resetting correctly. Please try logging in using your new password.

Please get back to us on chat (9.30-4.00) if you are still unable to get in or via the contact us form . We will get back to you as soon as we can.
