Jo, a member of the Crazy Art Quilters Group, tells me in a private email that she hasn't been able to log on to the site since she got a new computer that uses Window 8 for an operating system.  She's reported the issue, but I thought maybe someone else has had this problem and could offer up some advice.  She hasn't been able to get on the site for several days now.  Anyone had the same problem?

Linny in the blogs ,there is a write up on how to change the setting on the new computers so they can get on,  you just have to have her or you look thru  them.

Thanks, Barbara.  I tried to search the site for Windows 8 problems, but quilts have windows sometimes too, so LOTS of posts result.  It's just going to take a little time.

It's not windows 8 problem it is Internet Explorer 10 that is the problem.  You can either download google chrome or you can go into the IE settings and make IE 10 work.  I will try to locate the link for how to configure IE 10 for QCA site.

Another browser that works - and is free - is firefox. When DH and I bought our new PC with Windows 8, we had the same problem & it wasn't until I got on QCA from my old PC that I saw the message about IE 10 being a problem.
