Q. I've opened an account and uploaded all my details into the listing page, I've clicked the pay now button and the screen has gone blank? I've waited and nothing has happened, I then press back and all my details have been lost?
A. This is one of the most common problems experienced by our members. This problem is generally a result of the user trying to upload a photo bigger than 2mb, unfortunately our system won't accept photos/images that are bigger than 2mb - to solve this issue use a photo compressor tool (to reduce the size of your photos) we recommend www.shrinkpictures.com (free of charge)

Q. How does www.thedogdirectory.co.uk view puppy farming?
