Sorry for the outage earlier. Seems someone unplugged the server, so they could boil the kettle LOL
Techs are looking in to what happened, but at least they fixed it quick (within 30 mins of me contacting them) :mrgreen:

Seems there was an auto update on the php side of things, that caused an outage. Nawt a quick call to the tech's and reboot couldn't sort out though :mrgreen:

I've been on mobile site all day, without any issue :?:  :?:  :?:  Just checked now on my phone and 2 others in the house, and it's fine my end :?
It sounds like either the phone is using a cached page from last night, or her provider is using a web cache, which is not renewing.
What browser is she using?
 And does it work if she goes to rather than

She has just tried the first address you posted chris, and she gets the same message

Google is her browser

Bizarre, I haven't had any problems :idea:
If she is using an Android phone (google OS), and the standard browser, try the following
1. Open the Browser application.
2. Select the Menu key.
3. Select More.
4. Select Settings.
5. Select Clear cache.
6. Select OK.

I've just simulated using an android phone, and it's working fine (from what I can see). It sounds like either the browser or provider is using a cached page, rather than the actual page itself. Doing the above will clear her phones Cached page, if that is what it is using ;)

I see it seems to have worked, as she has replied to Craig's thread and in here :mrgreen:

Cached pages can cause no end of trouble. Even Richard had trouble a few weeks back, with a cached page not showing the side bar. And that was on a freshly installed PC :shock:  :o

Welcome back Angel LOL
