Board has gone wierd !!!

Postby AndyK » Fri Jan 17, 2014 3:54 pm

Every time I refresh the Q page, it demands that I log in again AND it fails to keep track of topics which I've read.

User / my software error or problem with Q :?:

Try to delete the board cookies by using the "Delete all board cookies" link:
  • On the Absolution theme, it's above the "Information" box.
  • On the Q theme, it's located in the menu bar under "Forum."
  • On the Prosilver theme, it's located in the footer at the bottom of the page.

That triggers a question from me. As far as I know I have the old standard yellow-greenish bread and butter Q theme. I had no idea that the Prosilver and Absolution themes exist. How do I change themes to try the others out? I would have thought it was in "display Options" but can't find it there.

Edit Global Settings sub-tab

My Board Style: drop-down menu

By the way, I'm not having trouble with login and refresh like Andy is.

Thanks. Right in front of me and I was too dense to see it.

I just tried changing my theme and I am getting the 'website cannot display page' error message. Could it be because I am using IE8?

All fixed. The perils of manually patching files.

ETA: If it doesn't look like it took, do a hard refresh by doing one of the following:
  • Hold down shift and hit F5 on your keyboard
  • Hold down shift and click the refresh button in your browser.
