    Possible way around recent forum hiccups

    I changed the theme/style (from the drop-down box near the bottom left of the page) to the vB4 Default Style, and this seems to make the site behave normally.

    EDIT: Unfortunately, this workaround doesn't work. See post #2. (emsr2d2)

    No, it doesn't! Much of the functionality is still badly impaired.

    Oh well, it was worth a try! Just to let you know, I've edited your first post to show that your fix doesn't work, just in case anyone only gets as far as reading post #1 before trying it. At least it'll be clear from the start that unfortunately it didn't do the trick.

    It looks like our content caching system had become corrupted, meaning that updates to content were recorded were not displayed. I've cleared it now and everything seems to have been resolved. I'm still checking for errors but I believe these issues should be sorted out. I'm very sorry for the inconvenience caused.

    I'm not a teacher, so please consider any advice I give in that context.

    Re: Possible way around recent forum hiccups

    Just to let you know that most of the site is still frozen in time for me. I got into this thread by clicking on ems's profile, viewing her recent posts, and coming here. If I try to go into 'Ask a Teacher' or 'What's New', I go back to the time I mentioned in my posts in the 'Support' forum (assuming they appeared) - some time after Raymott's post #3 in this thread: https://www.usingenglish.com/forum/t...98#post1292498

    Experience today suggests that I will see this post after I click 'Post Quick Reply', but will be unable to see it again when I move away and come back into 'Support'. The most recent post I can see in the 'Support' forum is #11 in this thread: https://www.usingenglish.com/forum/t...59#post1292259.

    I look forward to seeing you all again soon.

    Log out, clear your browser's cache, and log back in. This fixed it for me.

    Re: Possible way around recent forum hiccups

    That didn't make any difference for me.

    Nor for me. I still have frozen pages. I got to this thread by devious means.

    (Later) All OK now. Thanks.
