I am having trouble with "Wildiaries" (very strange spelling).

If I 'Google' "wildiaries" (it took me a while to realise there is only one 'd') the first choice I am presented with is a site with the URL
If I 'click' on the link to that site I reach a page titled "wildiaries 
wildiaries" (I do so hate
the lack of capitalisation that is rife these days!).
What I see is one of the strangest web-pages I have ever seen.
There appears to be some 'links' at the top of the page but when I 'click' on 
one, e.g.,
"birds"...........nothing happens. Except there is a message at the bottom left 
of my screen saying
"! error on page".

Obviously I am doing something wrong............but what?

Do I have to 'subscribe' to the site to be able to access the wonders being 
touted or am I
using the wrong web-browser?
I use Internet Explorer 7.

However, if, for example, I click on the link provided to Chris Sanderson's Southport pelagic report (in a recent posting to BirdingAus) I go to a page obviously on the same web-site as the one mentioned above but containing the report and several medium quality photos. The photos look like they are in a sort of gallery but it is not possible to simply view the photos in sequence as is the case in most on-line galleries I have encountered before. One has to return to the 'front page' after viewing each photo to select the next photo to be viewed. This can be a very time consuming and frustrating process......enough so that I don't think I have ever stayed around long enough to view a complete set of photos on any of the similar Wildiaries reports I have so far tried to view.

Once again, I may be doing something wrong............but what?

In its current iteration I don't think I would be interested in posting any trip reports on Wildiaries, sorry.
