General


The Bulletin Online web site uses Javascript and is designed for 1024/768 screen size.

 

You may get warnings from your browser as you are redirected to the individual Bulletin services from Bulletin Online.

Web Browser Requirements


Bulletin Messenger makes use of some modern HTML5 code as well as javascript so it wont work so well on older browsers.

 

We recommend using IE9 or above, Chrome, Firefox or Safari browsers as Messenger makes use of responsive web design - using your screen real estate effectively in these browsers. Don't worry if you are using the ancient IE8 - Messenger degrades gracefully just like any decent product should.


To access and use Messenger you will need a browser that:
  1. supports cookies 
  2. has JavaScript enabled 
  3. has 1024 by 768 or above screen resolution. 

Internet Explorer 7.0 and older are not supported and we suggest you visit http://www.browserchoice.eu to find a new one and don't want to be the target of viruses.

 

Some browser plugins or extensions (eg Grease Monkey) interfere with JavaScript so if you are running anything like this then please disable them or add bulletinmessenger.net to the exclusion list for the extension.

Browser Security


Security is a major concern when accessing a website you don't know. All traffic to and from the Messenger service is over secure HTTPS connections. No personal information is stored in cookies on your PC but we recommend that you check this yourself to put your mind at ease.

 

You may also notice that using the browser BACK button may cause an error to be displayed. This reduces the incidence of messages being resubmitted by mistake and also prevents any of your pages being accessed should someone attempt to replay your session from data they may have intercepted. Trust us, that is a good thing even though it is a little annoying at times. You can usually navigate using the buttons and links within the page so there is no need to use the BACK button.

 

On the subject of security we recommend you do not use the same password on our service as you do for other on line services. On our systems your passwords are stored securely (hashed) but on your browser they may not be.
