Please delete this. I was trying to add photos as it only seemed possible in this forum area. But it now says picture file is too big (>2MB) when it isn't (is 1.7MB)

If you have a problem like that, clear your browser cache for this site. hit ctrl-f5 on a PC, or find the menu option in the browser on a device without a keyboard.

The problem is because your browser had cached some elements of the site with the old software version, which need to be cleared for the new version to display properly.

Nice picture, Did she come with the tour?

I didn't know that the 2CV tours were still operating with the clean air zone in force.

BTW, I had not mentioned that the size limit on uploaded pictures has (for most purposes) been removed. Any uploaded picture that is too large will be automatically re-sized.

Have you tried clearing your browser cache?

This can be done with ctrl-f5 on a PC browser, or if on a mobile device, it is somewhere in the menus.

I am sorry that this is happening, but it is due to the way that the software designers updated the page formatting.

Yes, the 2CV tours are still in force. I do wonder if they have a special permit as there are NO old cars in Paris at all and we only saw our own 2CV and one in the evening (with magnificent yellow lights!). Saw a rare 3.0HDi C6 but that's it so far!

It's Rachel's birthday so we are doing Paris. Pleased I managed to get a bit of Citroen into the holiday.

Sorry your Tech support forum has gone off topic with my holiday adventures!

Did exactly the same for me when I opened it in chrome but was alright in IE, I've now done the tech tip and all fine again.

Many thanks.
