The BMFA website is working fine.

Here is the correct address: https://www.bmfa.org

Yes, we know the BMFA website is working "fine" for probably most people, it's just that some of us don't seem to be able to get to it.

Just tried your quoted address on both Win and Android devices - same result - no access. (some of the devices are not even mine, so it's not something I have done)

"The BMFA website is working fine."

No, it isn't..!!

I have just tried the above address, same result. I am using W8.1 and have tried in both Chrome and IE and on my Galaxy S6 Android

In fact IE brought up a page which said BMFA.org has only just been registered.

Has anyone spoken to the BMFA....?

Something happening at last.

Tried again a few minutes ago and got the main site OK, but this time couldn't get the Nation Centre site and Acheivement Scheme site which have been OK up until now.

Waited a few more minutes, and now I can get all three again.

Since there is some work going on this weekend I guess it must be linked to that and was only a temporary blip.

Should be ok now. Nothing to do with the new upcoming membership system which is hosted separately.

BMFA News for ongoing work completed this weekend

It will then take a couple of days for the data migration and testing to take place before the system goes live. When the system goes live you will receive an email from membership@bmfa.org with details of your user name and a link to set your password, once you have done this you will have access to your members dashboard, please review the details we hold for you and update as necessary.

Once the new system is up and running and most members have gained access the old website logins will be deleted and you will have just a single login that gives access to both the membership portal and the website. You will receive an email notifying you in advance of this happening.

Do you have the little padlock showing next to the website address in the address bar?

Thanks Denis I am aware of the planed upgrade due and would have expected any issues after the event not before, unless they are already messing about in advance on the live system.

Just trying to access the normal website not anything requiring a login. Can get the power nationals and northern area websites, just seems to be anything starting https://bmfa.org crying

Andy,

No padlock before address

Tried a link from google search but address dosen't show the green padlock either.

All other websites tried work find with a green padlock - it just appears to be the bmfa.org.

I am having intermittent problems. Cannot access the site directly but can through Google. If I log in I cannot access any page.....frustrating!

I spoke too soon.

Now back to as before - can't access main site on any device, but can still get AS site and NFC site. Doesn't matter if I copy and paste, enter direct, or use links.

No green padlock.

A bit of additional information.

The only common factor between all the devices I have tried is my home WiFi hub, so I just tried turning off wiFi on my mobile (Android/Chrome) phone and with the WiFi OFF I can get the BMFA site, but with the WiFi ON I just get a message saying "invalid response from the website" and it "can't privide a secure connection".

ERR_SSL_PROTOCOL_ERROR

Hope this helps.

I can download that agenda on my mobile phone if I turn off the WiFi, but turning off the WiFi doesn't help with my PC or tablet! That is the problem.

Tried again and still unable to access.

Tried Denis's link and got 1&1 web hosting stating bmfa.org is registered otherwise it would show page not found.

Full address of link - http://www.bmfa.org/Home/Minutes-Agenda?Command=Core_Download&EntryId=2694 but won't connect.
