Tried everything in the previous posts. No joy so far. I can get the main site on my Galaxy S6 by turning off the WiFi but as a previous poster noted it's no good for the WiFiers at home.

If that link is to the BMFA main web site (which I suspect) it does not open and repeats this....

Thanks Robert for testing the link. From the start of this thread, the whole time, my android, my PC WiFi too, windows 10 and and phone, old G3 have gone to the site immediately, no problem, no delay, all accessible

So something is going on in a few parts of the country or in certain homes.

By their own admission, the BMFA are adjusting more than one part of their site

Unhelpful to us right now, things will get worse over the weekend

I say that we meet up again Monday

Then for sure we will know which direction to go in,

Good idea - after a weekends rest they can take a fresh look at it.....

My Android (Galaxy S6) can get it. OK if the WiFi is off

If some folk can see the web site. (I can no problem). Does it depend on which ISP we're using?

I can see it using either BT broadband or 3 Mobile.

Another thought, those that can't see it and are on a PC.Try loading the website, once it's failed try pressing Ctrl and F5 together. Sometimes this will flush out connection problems.

The issues are absolutely nothing to do with the upcoming introduction of the new membership system which is hosted separately. Ther have been no changes to the website and the only immediate changes which will be late on on sunday is the turning off of the online renewal capabilities.

Chris B - Ctrl + F5 = https://bmfa.org/failed crying

The site doesn't work for me either. I get the message below:

This page can’t be displayed

Turn on TLS 1.0, TLS 1.1, and TLS 1.2 in Advanced settings and try connecting to https://bmfa.org again. If this error persists, it is possible that this site uses an unsupported protocol or cipher suite such as RC4 (link for the details), which is not considered secure. Please contact your site administrator.

 
The TLS stuff is already turned on. PC is using Windows 7 and Internet Explorer 11.0.85 if that's of any use. There is no little padlock (usually to the right of the address bar) and to the left of the address in the bar there is a three-sided red and grey symbol...I thought the BMFA symbol usually appeared there though I may be wrong.
 
My iPhone (on WiFi) initially also failed to connect, giving a message about Safari being unable to get a secure connection, then suddenly it connected and has remained working for 10 minutes now.
 
Perhaps the above messages might provide some clue?

I am using BT broadband and can't get access. Perhaps it's the router - BT Hub 6 in my case.

Tried Ctrl and F5 together as you described - it worked once and gave me access, but after leaving the site it won't work again and I can't get back in.
