Website problem?

Post by Silver_Shiney » 30 Jan 2017, 07:23

For the last couple of days, every page on the forum has open drop-down lists all over the screen. This is happening on both my Windows PC and my Android tablet

Yesterday I did a major update to the forum software and due to the way some of the files were changed (not by me) there can be in some cases a few "strange" results. Doing a hard refresh of your browser (Ctrl + F5 on a PC) will clear the problem.

Thanks, David, I've had the same problem and that worked.

It's been working for me on Google Chrome, but not IE.

I had the same problem and cleared my browsing cache. That seemed to work

Thanks David, I'll try that when I get home. Does anyone know what the Android equivalent is?

The only problem I have is a very brief flash of some letters in place of the photo on our header, too brief to register though, unless it's a subliminal message of some sort that's yet to be activated.
PS might be "phpbb"

Phew - I thought for one moment you were copying another cruise forum with the word ' critic' in it which suddenly changed over the weekend and I found all the whiteness of the new layout was hurting my eyes.
I checked just now and it has reverted to its original format, presumably after some critical input from regular users.

Thanks again, David, Chrome on the PC is now displaying the forum correctly, but I can't see how to resolve the problem on my Android. Rebooting hasn't helped.

Thanks David

Apart from the instructions bearing no relation to my Android, I eventually found the section alluded to and it's made no difference at all :(

Sorry - do a Google search on "hard reset browser on xxxxxxx" - it should point you in the right direction.

Which browser are you using on your Andriod device - I use Firefox and those instructions basically work

Hi David

I'm using Chrome, but recently it's started opening all emails "not" in the main browser (I know that doesn't make sense) with a menu option to open n Chrome proper, and there is a banner at the top with a "back" button to return to the message. When I get home tonight I will try to photograph it (I don't think I can do screen dump on the tablet) so you can better understand what I mean

That's because I did a bit of "magic" last night - wasn't sure that it would work, which is why I did not mention it.

If your toast always falls on the buttered side it means you have buttered the wrong side.

Has he promised you Paradise with a thousand virgins if you become a mod? Take mine and Mob's advice and don't do it.

It was all sounding promising Foxy until you mentioned the thousand virgins :)

Posts only send after two hits of the button.

Anyone else noticing this or is it just my old steam powered PC needing more coal.

I have deffo noticed that and the consequence, not surprisingly, is that I end up with duplicate posts / PMs.

Foxy just sent me two identical PMs .... just saying :lol:

ps .... latest Win 10 upgrades ?

I have only recently noticed the same problem, additionly it kicked me out earlier today from my tablet, had to sign in afresh, not had that issue for quite a while. I wonder if the smurf might have indigestion or similar.
