Internet Explorer & Facebook Sharing Fix
We have fixed a problem with ads getting in the way of your ability to use the site on Internet Explorer. We are so sorry for all of you who were affected by this problem! It happened as we were releasing new updates to the site. Thankfully, many of you let us know and we were able to figure it out and solve the problem!
Many of you also had trouble posting your training diary entries to Facebook. We fixed a bug and you should be able to post your entries now. We're so excited for this feature to be back up! Be sure to take advantage of it and share your training entries to your friends and family over Facebook. Try it now!
