Forum Formatting Error

Post by Ruffnut » Tue Mar 06, 2018 7:47 am

I know this is not strictly AFF related, but this is the most popular section. Me an lorian have been viewing the forum on phones for over a year now, but a few days ago this weird formatting error appeared.

Whenever we do anything, lots of things come up. We can usually get rid of them using buttons, but some times there are buttons hidden by other items that come up.

We were wondering if anybody knew how to fix this?

It's not just you, i was getting that on my desktop PC as well...
In a time of fear and confusion, silence charging the air
The sunlight is gone, darkness lives on, in the heart of the dragon's lair

Glad to know it is not just me and Lorian!

I updated the forum software a few days ago as it was about 4 versions out of date. Something somewhere has gone wrong... I will get it fixed asap

Thank you, it went wrong for me on my iPhone yesterday and at the moment the forum is almost unusable with all the stuff overlaying it.

Looking forward to being able to catch up on everything soon!

The current theme is designed for v3.1 and the board is now at 3.2.2.

There are work arounds but it involves some CSS editing!

I think the theme designer is working on an update.

Nope. Still getting tons of pop-ups and replicated icons of different sorts. It's more like Salvador Dali than a forum.

Addendum: In IE it looks okay, but in Firefox it's scrambled.

Have you tried clearing your cache? I have checked it in Firefox, Chrome and Opera and it seems OK in all of those for me?

The certainly sounds like a cache problem because i got that at an intermediate stage of fixing the problem...
