Important Information Regarding Accessing the 70:20:10 Forum with the Internet Explorer (IE) Browser


As of 12th January, 2016, Microsoft has dropped support for all versions of Internet Explorer below Version 11 (IE11). This means that versions lower than this will no longer receive security and feature updates.

A significant portion of our users still use versions of Internet Explorer. Whilst the majority of our users are on the latest version (IE11), we are aware that some people are still using Internet Explorer 10 (IE10), Internet Explorer 9 (IE9) and Internet Explorer 8 (IE8).

There are also a small amount of people using versions of Internet Explorer less than IE8. Internet Explorer 7 (IE7) was released almost 10 years ago and doesn't support 90% of current technologies.

The 70:20:10 Forum will load when using the IE7 browser however most of the functionality will not work.

If you see the notification "The browser you are using is very outdated and will cause some parts of this site to not work as expected" at the top of the site, this means you will not be getting the best experience or the site may not even work at all.

The 70:20:10 Forum currently offers basic support for these older browsers but this support will be withdrawn with the next major release of the website which is imminent. 
 
Modern website technologies can only be supported on what are termed "Modern Browsers".

These include:

  • Google Chrome
  • Firefox
  • Newer versions of Safari
  • the New Microsoft Edge (the successor to Internet Explorer).

What you need to do if you are using IE7, IE8, IE9 or IE10

In order for you to receive the best possible experience on the 70:20:10 Forum website, we recommend that you upgrade to Google Chrome or Firefox.

We appreciate that in many organisations you cannot easily change the technological platforms you wish to use.  However, just because Internet Explorer is the default browser on your system this does not mean that you may not also have other browsers available.

If you cannot find an alternative browser on your system, please visit http://browsehappy.com/ and try installing one of the modern browsers from this site. Alternatively you may need to speak with your IT department about having a more modern browser installed if you do not hold the administrative permissions for your PC.
