"looks funny"

For the last couple of days, the HUBB doesn't display properly on my mobile. The left hand margin isn't where it should be, it cuts off much of the text on that side of the screen, so I can't read posts. No amount of refreshing, cookie and cache clearing makes any difference. Don't know if it is a problem with my phone (other websites display fine), or a HUBB problem?

I have problems when looking at the website via Google Chrome also, the bar that appears on the right of all forum posts in internet explorer (the one that has the translate this page, followed by New to Horizons Unlimited section etc. basically the div class "off-canvas-wrapper relative") appears not to the right but above all forum posts (the content div) in Chrome, which means I have to scroll all the way past this in order to view the actual forum itself.

In pale yellow, at the top of this page is:-
If the HUBB "looks funny" please force a refresh to get the latest code update.
(Hold down the shift OR ctrl key, and click the refresh button on your browser.)

It works for me. although there is a stack of adverts down the RHS of the screen.

Solved it on mine. I'd increased the font size in firefox last week to check something else. I've just changed it back and the adverts are back on the right instead of listed above the main forum

It seems to have resolved itself now. All back to normal.

On my machine (Ububuntu 10.04 firefox) I have to scroll down about three feet past boxes on the left before I get to any text or postings,, didn't use it at all for couple of days as I though system was down.. just need to scroll down a huge amount every page change.
problem is still here.... now

I can send you screen shots by email, but there will be about six screens of rubbish before I get to the top of the web page proper.

"The rubbish" moved from the top of the page to the RHS when I reloaded the page, using google chrome. All of the adverts are still there, but they are now on the right of the page, making the presentation of this script quite small - it would be illegible on a mobile phone, to my eyes anyway!

Using Opera, this page loaded immmediately, without reloading, still with the ads showing on the RHS.

I gave up using Firefox a while back for some, problematic, reason or other that I can't remember.

Was funny on W7/Firefox, but since yesterday afternoon, less funny.

The adverts down the right are a necessary evil, I suppose. I'll easily train myself to ignore them like I do on all other websites, although having Grant and Susan's face staring at me on every page is a little disconcerting. I'm always checking to make sure my webcam is unplugged I might have to stick a post-it note in the top right of my monitor

Or I could use tippex on the screen, just like I use to correct spelling mistakes. Or hide their faces with comedy beards? Hang on, Grant already sports a comedy beard

The stuff on the right hand side really makes everything else difficult to read on my IPad, which is my primary method of reading the HUBB. Is it here to stay? my eyes aren't getting any younger!

odd you all getting stuff on the right, for me it is as I say about 3 feet of scrolling down past stuff on my left.

Once i get to the web page proper it is pretty much as it was except every time i change pages I have to do the scroll down thingy, which is getting to be annoying













Just like this probably is.
