I haven't been coming here as much lately as I'm finding it difficult to read the threads. The threads are not laying out as they should and I'm finding them difficult to read. This is how I am seeing the forum now which is not ideal

It does that to me when I use google chrome, the only way I get around it is to use internet explorer.
Its seems to have started after they changed the site. I complained several times after the site first changed but seems the problem is still there.

It's a bit of a pain really because I had a new computer just before Christmas and I'm mostly using Google Chrome now. Looks like I will need both Google Chrome and Microsoft Edge open. Thanks Gibbo

I get that now and again with google chrome. I do have some issues such as having to use advanced search as the normal search button wont let me type anything. Also changing the font colour, having to click on the icon for a second time to ok the colour change.

I'm using Chrome. No problems for me. Is this a problem with Chrome and Windows 10 combined.

I've no real idea why I'm seeing it as it should be.:rolleyes:

You could try clearing Cookies and Browsing History/Data. Then log back in.

I'm using Opera with BB code toggled off. I turn it on if I need something on the format bar and then turn it off again.

BB code is a very simple set of instructions (also known as BB tags) that provide rules as to how a piece of text should be formatted. When a page that contains BB code is displayed in the browser, the BB tags are replaced with appropriate HTML tags that the browser can understand.

The last icon on the formatting bar turns the BB code on and off if toggled.

When you cut and paste from various sites the formatting on this site is different with different browsers with BB code on or off. I find the formatting better if the BB code is off but that means I have no access to change colour or size of text or add quotes until I turn it on.

"[ COLOR=rgb(243, 121, 52)]colour[/COLOR ]" with the spaces removed = orange


I could just type the codes manually [ QUOTE] [/QUOTE ] with no spaces.

[B ] [/B ] for bold with no spaces.

Hi everyone,

I have just changed some server configurations, it seems at times a module was blocking the rendering of the site. I have now removed this module, so it all should be working perfectly fine now.

Refresh or delete cache, and please let me know when you have the time.

Fingers crossed this is now sorted.

Thank you

Cleared cache. The icons on the reply box is now highlighted and can use the search ok. I have the forum on 2 different desktops. The 2nd (as I call it) is the one that one that wouldn’t let me type in the search box. Its takes a few taps before I can type in the box. I’m not bothered by it as the other one is working ok now 😊
