Strange pages.
« on: Tuesday 12 May 15 15:08 BST (UK) »
 I am looking at threads and there seems to be a vast amount of space at the bottom of the last line of the post . This is on all threads.
Also "report to moderator" and list of names of interest  etc is vertical rather than horizontal.

I`ve used a very recent post from this forum as an example
There`s also what looks like a Facebook like page icon.
Very odd, any explanations please.

Hi Wilcoxon, and anybody else who has noticed some weird effects ...

Nothing to worry about :)
Trystan is tweaking bits here and there to make RootsChat more search-engine and mobile "friendly".

Trystan,
In case this helps, I've also noticed some effects on my laptop, with the signatures and "Report to Moderator" links, etc.

Bob - I'm aware of the effects that you are seeing, but wasn't aware of the ones that wilcoxon was seeing.

Wilcoxon - It should be back to how it should be now while I do a bit more work on it. Thanks both for your feedback. :)

What browser (and what versions) were you both using?

Just spotted a "Like" tab at the bottom of my first post, but not on the other replies.
It`s probably been always there but I`ve never noticed before

Thanks :)

Yes the "like" button has been there for a bit. It's on the first post of each topic, for people to share stories.

Haven't noticed anything out of the ordinary today.  I'm using Firefox 37.0.2 on Windows 8.1.

Lizzie,

Thank you for that. I  switched all back quickly to how it was, so it may be that you missed it, or perhaps it just looked right on your computer. Perhaps I should have left it on for a bit longer to see what other people can see.
