NFED Blog & Technical Updates

  • 0 Bank Transfer & Cheque Payments Added to Shopping Cart

    Bank Transfer payments & cheques have now been added as a payment option alongside credit/debit card & Paypal on the NFED shopping cart making it very easy for those that bank online or through their banking app or prefer not to pay at all online.  The payment details are shown on the order confirmation screen & will be sent by Email when the order is complete. The order will remain pending until the payment is made & confirmed. Cheque must be cleared before the order is processed. For more information see www.wikihow.com/Make-a-Bank-Transfer-Payment

  • 0 NFED Equestrian Facebook Group Removed

    We have now permanently removed the NFED Equestrian Facebook Group. To continue receiving NFED Facebook notifications Like & Follow the page: www.facebook.com/nfed.co.uk & please tell your friends to do the same. This does not affect the NFED Website or Newsletter, the NFED is completely independent. The Facebook & Twitter pages are only provided to notify social media users of the latest posts, news, events & featured ads. The group was created as temporary stop gap when our page was removed by Facebook. The new page works far better for us than the group, so the group was no longer required & having both was very confusing for people. This allows us to concentrate on running the NFED efficiently as possible & sharing the latest updates on the Facebook page.

  • 0 Some iPhone/pad Photos Not Uploading.

    This seems to be a recent problem with the iPhone HEIC photo format which is not recognized by web servers. The device should convert the photo to a widely compatible JPG, but not all photos are being converted. Change your iPhone/pad settings to make it automatically convert photos to a more compatible format when transferring. Follow the instructions below to do so: Go to Settings > Photos. Scroll down to the Transfer to Mac or PC section. Tap Automatic. As with all photo problems, don't struggle you can always send them over by Email, WhatsApp or Facebook & they will be uploaded for you.

  • 0 NFED Emails Update

    Since the server change, I’ve been monitoring Emails sent through the NFED & all seems to be working very well. The only ISP now having issues is NTL which has been Virgin media since 2005. I doubt if the NTL servers will be updating very often if at all, so if you have an ntlworld email address, it’s probably time to change it! Monitoring the sent Emails has highlighted the number of misspelt addresses. If you have an advert, you can log in & check it. If you have sent enquiries, the advertiser will not be able to get back to you. Please type carefully & always double check or it won't work.  Finally, there are quite a lot of adverts not being approved. Please read the guidelines & pricing & remember that Free ads must be clearly priced to qualify. NO PRICE = NO FREE AD.

  • 0 BT Internet Email Issue Resolved

    UPDATE 30-03-21 - BT Internet now seem to be accepting Emails ok. If you have an NFED advert with a BT Email address & think you have missed enquiries, please contact us by Email editor@nfed.co.uk & the back-ups can be forwarded on to you. Please remember to check your adverts by sending an enquiry to yourself. If you don’t receive it, please see - Advert Enquiries & Email Problems www.nfed.co.uk/q.php?faq=49 for further help. If you have sent an enquiry & not received a reply, please try sending again or text/phone if the advert has a phone number. 

  • 0 Server Upgrade Completed

    The entire NFED has now moved to the new server. The domain name is the same, but the IP address has changed. This may cause some issues with old pages held in your device history or if your service provider is slow in updating caches. If you have any problems, please first refresh the page & clear your history. If you are still having problems, please get in touch. The new server is running the latest OS, has more memory & faster processor, but some site software had to be changed to match the new software. Classifieds – No changes required Services Directory – Replaced with the latest version but links & references preserved Event Diary – Updated by the software company to maintain our custom updates. FAQs - Replaced with the latest version. News pages - No changes required Site News - Replaced with a new blog. Phonebook – incompatible & removed. Events are starting to come in again so the timing couldn’t have been better & it’s a great relief to have it all finished.
