Title: I need to know what you see on the forum.
Post by curious_aardvark on Jul 10th, 2013 at 6:44am
Apparently the avatars and pics are displaying normally for someone not a member of the forum.

So I need to know what the members see.

I can't see any pics or avatars displaying.

But does anyone else ?

so do you see pictures and user avatars displaying correctly or not ?

When I come disguised as a guest, I can see pictures and avatars and I get a blue template.

When I'm here as myself, I can't see avatars, pictures "in post" and only the link for the attachments.

No pics or avatars on brown board when logged in from my mobile. When logged out on mobile, I get the blue board but pictures load and avatars work. Blue board and sketchy login issues on my PC.

I don't see them when logged in, I also go this message when I got this vote on the main page:

"ALERT!! Form Spoofing Detected coming from IP address: [insert my IP]"

Not quite sure what that's about.

Nope! No pictures or Avatars on the brown background.

yeah I've had that a few times.
if you logout and log back in again I think it goes away.

I got to believe that it's all related. Got a couple of things to try, so keep fingers crossed.

When I am logged in I can not see the pictures or avatar.  When I am logged out and enter as a guest  can see both.  Go figure.  Tony

No pics or avatars for me on the old-style format. Haven't tried the blue one.

Post by squirrelslinger on Jul 17th, 2013 at 12:02pm
I accidentally clicked I see everything... as a member... when I didn't realize I was logged as a guest.
So right now- I see nothing.
When guest- everything

I was experimenting with the

"Which Template would you like to use?
(if more than one is available)"

feature in my profile options and found that with some of the templates I can see avatars and pictures while logged in and with some I can't. For me, Old YaBB 2.5 style, Blue_1, and Old YaBB 2.1 style let me see avatars and pictures while logged in, but Forum default, Blue_test, and Forum2, don't let me see them.

I don't know if that gives any clue as to the real problem, but it is nice to have some settings that let me see things.

huh ?
You can do that ?
I had no idea lol
Hmm,

Oh yeah - okay that opens up a lot more options. And also explains the - up till now - confusing poll results.
Cheers timothy :thumb:

had a play and old style yabb 2.1 is closest to the forum original.
Although the resizing of the news section at the top of the page is bloody annoying.

But as far as I can see everything else seems to work. pictures and avatars definitely display.

Title: Re: I need to know what you see on the forum.
Post by curious_aardvark on Jul 29th, 2013 at 12:05pm
okay
Old YaBB 2.1 style - modded
gives us original colour scheme, and everything works.

Looks like it's the header that's buggering things up.
I'll leave that alone for the time being.

defintiely a step forward :thumb:

huh weird - think you're just about the only one.

How often do you check at the top to see if you need to login ?
As an example I have to re-enter my password near enough each time I visit the forum.
A lot of stuff doesn't work unless you're logged in with your most recent ip address.

but other than that - if you're using the yabb 2.1 old style modified template - no idea, works for everyone else as far as I know :noidea:
