Topic: Zoho Writer - black screen

I have a problem with Zoho Writer. Whenever I run it, the window stays forever black or black with "loading". Never loads. Other Zoho services work normally. Does anyone have this problem too?

It is now up and running again.

Re: Zoho Writer - black screen

I have the log-in page running, saying "Logging in ..." and it has remained stuck there for over ten minutes. Initially I thought that the delay was caused by too many people wanting to log in but after visiting this forum I think rather that it is just a glitch in the system that needs fixing. PS It is still stuck there a quarter of an hour later.

Secondly : --

On these forums I tried to upload an avatar and after selecting an image to upload and clicking 'Submit' I got the following messages : --

CloudTop Forum » Confirm action

If that is the case and you would like to continue with your action, please click the Confirm button. Otherwise, you should click the Cancel button to return to where you were.

This service is in Alpha and obviously has lots of rough edges.

Paul, we have experienced some problems with old CloudMe account that have used iCloud previously. Go to [url][/url], at the login screen, locate Help at the bottom. Click Help and check the box with the text "Restore to default settings when I login". This should most likely solve your login problem.

Please note that we have not experienced any problems with new accounts.

Normally, after we have upgraded your settings from the old iCloud desktop (maximum one 1 minute), the login should be completed within 5-10 seconds.

Regarding the forum Avatar, we are looking into the problem. The forum is a third party product and has nothing to do with our CloudTop system and how it works. Most likely a configuration problem.

Best, CloudTop Team

The Avatar problem was a configuration one. The web server didn't have rights to write to the directory where the avatars are stored. That's been fixed now. Thanks for bringing it to our attention!
