    I am still trying to get to the bottom of the issue for people using Apple products.

    Many apologies for the inconvenience.

    – –

    I use a Macintosh- a very old one now; a 2010 model Macbook (Intel); running Mac OSX 10.12. So its not an ‘Apple users’ issue, but specific to those platforms running the software.

    IOs only runs specialised versions on iPads and another on iPhones. So the software update (which aggregiously is turned on to automatic update), and thereby causes these kinds of problems.

    Have you lodged a ticket with Apple Devs and/ or WordPress? I’ve noted both here and other sites that code loading delays occur and the sites take several seconds, maybe 5-10 to display, but I’ll admit I am loaded with anti-trackers and spyware killers, so expect some ‘denials’ due to that.

    Good luck with it, cheers dave

    When I turned off all the extensions for Safari the site works just fine. It must be an issue with Ad-Block or Malwarebytes.

    I can now access again from my IPhone! 🙌 big relief I can tell you.

    I went to settings – safari- clear website data and it seems to have worked. I will try my iPad once I get home too see if it’s the same.

    Quite bizarre. Turning the extensions back on now has no effect. I just turned them off, logged in, logged out, turned them back on, and now am back to normal. Very strange.

    Hi guys,

    well as alluded to I have little to do with IOs as such now, but I have 40 years experience with Macs going back to my very first- a second hand Mac I bought (50% deposit on $2k) in 1990. Ironically or not, it was wp on a book- some Napoleonic rules!

    Anyway, I was an active Mac-Advocate (even tho I had to use PeeCees [Wondoze] at work)… supporting new users and troubleshooting.

    My only IOs is an already aged (like me) iPhone5S and I virtually never use it for webbing…

    But yes strange things do happen- software glitches when old settings are re-used; and Appl / Safari is known for its ‘modern’ outlook to block privacy invasive web-toads. Frankly I found it so invasive on even my old MacBook I downgraded my copy and refuse it the right to update.

    Which is also one of the reasons I use a variety of different browsers to separate various aspects of web life from one another. [Unrelated RANT- It’s bad enough that companies like Appl and Guugla/ FarczBuk think they must control users; worse that they do so for often nefarious reasons and invasion of privacy beyond one wants to offer. /RANT].

    cheers d

    I have no Safari extensions installed, but by turning off all privacy and security features I’ve managed to access TWW again.  I’m not too happy with all those protections turned off, so I’ll try deleting the website data instead and see what happens.

    I’ve turned my protections back on, and not done anything with the website data yet, and I’m still in the site and able to move from page to page (and make posts!).  Looking good so far.

    Cool beans, the last couple of days I have been making changes to various things.
    It would be interesting to know if these changes have done the trick, or as with IT, it just started working.
    But I am not going to undo the changes just in case.

    Either way, YAY.

    And I’ve been able to log back in just now.  Excellent!
