I have joined and the watermark still appears on the resources as I scroll through the site.
Once you have become a member, you will be able to download the resources. When you download the resources, this watermark will no longer be there. If you find that it still appears after downloading the resource, please contact us at email@example.com and we will aim to fix this for you as soon as possible.
I can’t download the resources even though I have joined.
There are several reasons this could be happening.
Firstly, please check that you are signed in, sometimes when opening a session the computer automatically logs you out.
Alternatively, this may mean you need to download the latest version of Adobe Reader. Please follow this link to download the new PDF reader . Once you have downloaded it you will need to refresh your browser by closing all of your existing programs and tabs (some computers will also require you to restart your computer).
Additionally, Lesson Zone recommends switching to a different browser as some browsers do not work at the optimum level for our site. We recommend Google Chrome for the most efficient results.
Finally, if you have ensured you are both logged in and have the most up to date Adobe Reader and browser, please check that you do not have pop-ups blocked from Lesson Zone. You may need to add Lesson Zone to your pop-up exceptions in your browser settings.
As always, please feel free to contact us if you are having issues at firstname.lastname@example.org
