I READ the report Website glitch in The Crow last week with interest.
I had never visited this website before, so I decided to look at it myself.
The last paragraph of your story included the quote about the repair: "We've been trying for three weeks."
So, without any knowledge of the site, I found the problem, tested a solution, and sent the fix back to the website administrator in 15 minutes, telling them to pass it on to the developers.

My concern is that the website developers, who should know what they themselves wrote, have taken three weeks already to fix a simple problem.
Who is paying for this and why wasn't it sorted out in hours?
The Royston Town Centre Forum shouldn't be embarrassed, it should be livid and demanding a refund.
And in answer to your next question: No, I don't want the job. I'm too busy giving my customers the service they deserve.
