My banners and avatar are finally gone now too. Not sure why it took longer, but we're going to migrate them. It just may take time because it's Alex's account so he has to move them over. Sorry guys!

Heads up guys, the ISO button is missing until I can get in and fix the coding for this new theme. I deactivated and uninstalled carbon and the black and green since this is our permanent style. The goal is in the next couple days I hope to have the header installed and the ISO button returned. I appreciate your patience.

Regarding the problem with the ppp, I suspect that this is a glitch between the old version and the new, most likely something left over that just didn't translate. I'm going to look for a new extension to allow for us to set ppp again. Hopefully that will deal with the problem.

Anyone else have trouble viewing the website using Chrome? It looks fine on this computer using firefox. But Alex started using Chrome and it looks really effed up... has it been this way for anyone else?

Ok, I finally got around to starting to try and fix things.

@Ricochet I assume the Hall of Fame needs some of these?

It's not just you, but it's a glitch associated with the mobile view for our theme we have installed. I don't as of yet have the skills to locate the problem code and fix it. However, if you scroll down past your post that got caught in linki, you should find the recent posts there.

Okay, shoot me to the right place if I am not in it.

My.. forum looks really odd. Like There is a huuuuuuuuuuuuuge black banner on the right hand side. I am aware I have not been here for a minute but I tried the settings and went to board preferences. I noticed the width button but nothing I did made the forum get any bigger.

Help? :help:

It does that if you're zoomed out in chrome. Press Ctrl + scroll in or out to see what % zoom you're in.

Holy crap. Okay, but to get rid of it I have to make this so big I can only see one post at a time. :( So I have to choose between annoying black band and easy reading or no black band and less easy.

Thanks. I will ponder. It is nice and large font for my old eyeballs now LOL

Ok, having looked at your settings it wasn't quite set to the maximum width. What I see is not at all what your screenshot shows, so I am thinking it may have something to do with the browser you are using or it's settings, or perhaps the settings on the monitor. Let me know once you sign in if the change I made in your settings fixed it. If not, it's probably not to do with the site itself but something with your monitor or browser.

The good news is it is better. When I unzoomed to get it back to normal looking, the black band is still on the side but muuuuch thinner. I can manage that. Thanks everyone, and especially Daisy! ;)

I also have a bar, and I thought my header banner was wonky, but it's that the banner is centred on the page, and the content is fixed-wdth and left-aligned.

Problem with mobile usage of the Syndicate website, is that zoom in/out function right side of the page disappears into black void when zoomed out leavin left side syndicate profile functions sided to the far left.
tried power on/off mobile devices & still glitches, happened to my other electronic device as well. How to fix? it's rather irritable adjusting the screen constantly & usuing letter keyboard to comment slides the entire page downwards rather being stable. usuing a normal android web browser, however tried with chrome & had the same issue as well.

It might be whatever Marmot was looking into with the centering issue. I'll talk to him and see if he has changed something that might affect the mobile view.

My portrait view on mobile has a large banner down the right hand side and everything is squished over to the left. It wasn't like that before.

When I first get on the portrait view fills up the screen though I can't get over to the far right hand side where you can see the topic and who posted last (thats always been that way). Then I turn to landscape which is fine and when I come back to portrait it is all smashed on the left hand side again. I can zoom out though and it looks normal again so I guess its got something to do with the moon.

I think it's whatever Marmot has been working on in the code. I apologize for the inconvenience, it takes time to sort this kind of thing out.
