The system is optimised for Mozilla Firefox and we recommend you use this browser with CoolCleverKids.co.uk.

The system also works with popular browsers such as Microsoft Internet Explorer 9; Firefox; Apple Safari; Google Chrome, and Opera. There are minor issues which may impact on the user experience with some of these browsers.

Please note: Internet Explorer 10 has compatability issues due to not compliance of standards. Internet Explorer 10 users should click F12 and select the Brower mode as IE 9 and then click F12 again.

Current issues with browsers:

Playing videos may encounter issues with Safari.
The Exam mode Grid displays the question number and time on the line in Opera and IE10.

Or allow pop-ups from the following site:

  1. Enabled printing of background colours and images  (Safari does it by default)

 

If you wish to print worksheets some questions may have charts with shaded colours and questions may be based upon colours. If this option is not set, then charts may appear blank and questions will not make sense.

Enabling Pop-ups

To enable pop-ups from all sites

 

Go to Tools->Privacy->Uncheck box [ ] Turn on Pop-up Blocker

 

 

 

Another method in:

Internet Explorer:          Go to Tools-> Popup->Blocker-> Turn off popup blocker

 

(If the last menu says Turn On Pop-up blocker, then pop-ups are already enabled)

 

To allow pop-ups from   *.coolcleverkids.co.uk

 

Go to Tools -> Pop-up Blocker

 

Then enter *.coolcleverkids.co.uk   in the box and click Add

 

This entry should appear as below (along with any other entries you may have).

 

GOOGLE CHROME


Google Chrome's default behaviour is to minimise and then display only the title bar of pop-ups in the lower right section of the browser window (A message Pop-ups Blocked: appears). Users can view a pop-up's content by dragging its title bar into a more visible position.
