It works for us and looks really good, thank you.

Will there be a widget (?) so that I can link it on our website alongside the pipinfo and wcainfo ones?

Only people in Scotland cannot see it so far. Coincidence?

Nah; I’m blocked as well but it’s likely our local settings rather than a problem with the site.

Fortunately our firewall doesn’t think it’s porn.

We’re getting onto it without any problems but a colleague of mine who is co-locating in the Jobcentre and using their guest wi fi cant get in at all saying that ‘your organisation is blocking it’, which it most certainly isn’t, it must be the Jobcentres Wifi that has the block on.

Is this part of a plot to make sure that no one can see the site in case they want to challenge DWP, I think we should be told!

I can’t either
the screen saying it is blocked due to adult materials says it is ‘fortiguard’
but I have also logged the problem with our IT, so that might give further info

Yes, it’s being blacklisted by some systems (apparently back in 2004, the name was being used by an, ahem, non-charitable endeavour!!) ...

Hi David ... yes, I’m afraid so ... our funding for the work ended in Autumn 2019, and so we’ve now decided to concentrate our energies on this new, more adviser-focused content.

Hopefully the new content also sits more neatly with our existing pipinfo.net and wcainfo.net tools ... 

Cheers - Shawn
