    Ok, i use both my PC and laptop to get onto the Student room and the laptop is fine, but when I access the website on the PC, i get these red crosses in icons on the website and this RSS feeder thing.

    Its really annoying but I have no idea how to take it off, anyone got any ideas?

    RSS feeds for TSR would be interesting. Pity it wouldn't really work.

    I thought they did have it? It says it above every forum/thread; I don't know what it is though so I haven't used it.

    Um, they've existed for ages.... I've been subscribed to the About Forum feed for nearly a year

    Are you asking what RSS actually is? If so read this and watch this.

    Nooo, im not asking what it is - I just want to know how to get rid of it from my PC because I cant view the student forum properly. Al the lil icons (smiley faces) all have red x's on them - which is annoying when trying to view the site.

    like an image that doesn't load?

    right click them & see what comes up.

    Not sure how to get rid of them - maybe try the IE in system tools & see if they're still there.

    I have Yahoo's RSS feeds widget for several forums, delivering latest threads to my computer even when I'm not browsing TSR.

    What browser are you using? RSS Feeds and the website are two completely different things.

    RSS feeds aren't linked to by red crosses, thats when an image fails to load. RSS feeds are associated with an orange square with 3 white streaks in it.

    RSS bookmark toolbar in Firefox ftw.

    ^^Yea I know they are completely different, but the RSS thing and the red boxes seem to of been connected. As we speak the RSS thing has gone and everything is working fine.
