Google Sites

Hello there,

I am currently setting up a free google site as a temporary measure until I can afford to pay a company to set up a professional site for my singing work.

However, since I have been using google sites I have been experiencing nothing but problems!

All other web pages are working fine, but when I use google sites I am on there for about 2 minutes before the screen freezes and the 'end programme' box appears. It is very frustrating as I am constantly having to reload the internet every time it crashes, and something as simple as loading a picture to the site is taking hours.

For something that is meant to be simple and stress free to use isn't appearing that way at all!

Does anyone have any idea why this is happening? Is this a common problem for this site?

Many thanks!

Look in your "add-ons" and if "enabled" - disable Google Toolbar - this can sometimes cause problems. Worth trying.

I've never used Google sites before, but if you just make it from within your web browser then it would be worth trying it using a different browser. For example, if you're using Internet Explorer then try downloading Firefox and Chrome.

Doing this has helped me overcome many site specific problems that I've encountered in the past.

...Firefox OR Chrome

Thank you for your advice.

I have actually figured out the problem myself. It's funny that you mentioned using a different browser as that's what I did.

I tried accessing the site through a different internet browser...I was using IE...but I tried it on Flock and it worked :)

However, after using it all night, this morning I have tried to sign in to my webpage and it won't load anymore. Basically I click on the link to sign in and the loading bar goes all the way up and then it just stays on the same page, it's like I haven't clicked the link at all.

Any ideas why this is now happening? Thank you for your time!
