    Strange goings on...

    Recently, over the last few days I've been getting this sort of page appearing when I click into a forum. It happens randomly and on various forums. I can click out and back in and all is ok. Anyone know what's going on?

    Seems odd. Never seen that!

    Possibly something to do with the adverts. But the company behind these will be changing so that could put an end to it!

    Give it a few days please.

    I clicked on the stupid picture and now the board looks different, and the links for things like new posts are gone for me.

    OK, nevermind. I had to erase history and stuff to get it back. Weird, indeed.

    This has been happening to some members off and on lately.

    I will sometimes have problems logging in, then get forwarded to either a page view of the forum with no menu or navigation options, and sometimes I just get directed to a page with the adverts centered and no other content on page.

    I'll try and take screen images the next time it happens.

    It's been happening to me, as well. Either i'll get the blank page with just ads, or i'll get the forum only with no navigation bar...

    For me it's been about 1 1/2 - 2 weeks, I would say.

    OK... That fits in with an advertiser change that took place about then... which is being undone shortly. Let's hope that resolves it...

    Might be a browser issue. I've been fighting it for a week or more at work on crappy IE, finally broke down & used the Google Chrome someone installed on this desktop & it's working fine.

    Actually, I was wrong. Yesterday it happened somehow when I clicked the back button off of this thread, back to that same thing the first guy posted. It's ok today so screw it. I'm good.
    Who knows WTF it was, but I'm better now.
    Maybe I'm just a tad tarded.

    How bizarre.... Well, the advertiser is being changed so let's hope that sorts it...
