    This is for posters who don't want to view the chat, religion or any other forums besides the news forum. You have the option to view all topics or only one topic. In the sidebar on the right, look for "Browse by Forum". You have two options, "Everything" or you can choose only one topic to view as your default setting. Most who want to view only one forum choose news. Currently these are your only two options. Most posters choose all because they know how to sort through the comments that they want to read. AM

    Why isn't Free Republic easier to read on my iPhone and iTouch? When I click on a thread, the type spreads out and it's so small I cannot read it. Why doesn't it format in a narrower column so the font is larger and readable?

    I've been here since late 2002. Many times I would like to know a little about a poster, but they haven't created an About Me page. It sometimes helps to frame the context of a comment, and besides, this forum feels like family. So please, take ten minutes or so and let the rest of us know a thing or two about you. I think it might help if there were several page templates for people to use.
  • Is Someone Playing Games with FreeRepublic?

    Access to FreeRepublic has been spotty for me for quite some time now. But tonight I saw something I haven't seen before. At 8:04 PM ET, I tried to refresh FR three times. Each time the page came up reasonably quickly, but the most recent post was from 7:34 PM. (No. I'm not "working offline"!) Now I see that there were the usual number of posts during that half hour. What's going on here? (Usually when FR fails, it fails to load for a while. I don't get anything back at all; and then I see a gap in the...

    Every day it gets harder and harder to use FreeRepublic. For some reason the site is suffering from unspecified "server" problems that are rarely explained in a way that longstanding members such as myself can even find. The only reason I know there is a server problem is because someone finally posted a comment from FR Staff over on the Alternate Free Republic site; a place I find myself turning to more and more frequently while waiting for the latest daily problem to be resolved. To say this is merely frustrating is the understatement of the year. I grant you...

    If this issue has already been addressed; my apology. I did a search for the subject, but found nothing. Is anyone else having problems accessing Free Republic lately? Ever since the SOTU address, it's been almost impossible to access the site. Usually, I just get sent back to my orginal website instantly. At other times, after a several minute delay, I'll get a "connection could not be made/server proxy error; site down for maintenance or heavy traffic. I don't think it's a problem with my computer because I can get to any other site in a snap.

    I had encountered a thread yesterday where there was actually a 6 month old FReeper who did not know who the Viking Kitties were, and appeared distressed over what being ZOTted meant. I have been a lurker since 2000, & only recently myself started posting. So, if its alright with the other FReepers, I would like to give a brief introduction of just a few of the Viking Kitties for the benefit of legitimate newcomers: There's a certain FReeper named Darkwing, ZOTTING a troll is his thing, If you put yourself on the spot You'll get the ZOT And then...

    I am in need of technical support. I am registered on my State Board, Florida, and have always received forum messages at the top of my Latest Articles page. Without having made any changes, I am no longer receiving Local/Florida messages anywhere. Is anyone else having this same problem or can someone assist me in figuring out why I'm not longer receiving these messages?
