Very strange.

This topic is not displayed normally but a topic that was incorrectly displayed became normal while I was adding posts to it without change of browser.

When I click on all the topics down the right-hand side of the screen some are formatted correctly and others not.

I can't find the pattern.

Today this topic is not formatted correctly for me.

Hi Dave,

Just been playing around with this issue!

Can you try your usual source and when you open a new message or reply please click the far right button that looks like a cog - to Toggle BB code (off/on)
Then paste your information in
Hopefully, that will help you mate (y):)
Thanks Dave,

That solves the issue.

Dave

Well, I have no idea what is going on.

I switched from Opera to Chrome and now this topic is formatted correctly.

Not all topics are formatted correctly though. And they all didn't 'flip' from one to the other with the change of browser.

The page still looks like that.

The formatting of the James NEWELL topic flipped back to normal and when it did TEBBR moved from last on the list to the middle as per this capture.

I've done nothing for the past 15 minutes and now returning to the main forum page I find the formatting is back to normal. ??????

As before, some topics are formatted normally and others not.
