Rootschat "Home" page problem
« on: Sunday 28 October 18 10:00 GMT (UK) »
Is it just me?

On the rootschat "home" page I don't have a header, just a list of the usual headings eg Home, Forum, Help etc down the left and side of the page in blue font. There are over 35 current genealogy topics when I am sure there used to be a lot fewer.

I found the same on my ipad earlier and thought it might be my old ipad, but it is the same on my desktop.

Is anyone else experiencing the same thing?

Thanks Gadget. It must just be me.

Could be my settings - I have just noticed some of the emojis have words rather than the emoji eg at the moment I have the words 'cheesy', 'huh' and 'undecided' and the rest are the usual emojis.

I have probably fiddled with something I shouldn't have.  :)

I agree with Gadget,  nothing out of place for me.

Thanks JM.

Starcat, I was resigned to the fact that this was probably just me - glad it is not just me.  ;)

I will try reloading but I wonder if one of the techy people can offer any suggestions about why it happens or how to fix this.  :)

All normal, often pages don't load properly if internet speed/wifi is slow!

It is the header that I have in list form thanks Hallmark. Internet speed is good.

The topics on my page look like yours, but I note you also have a lot more topics than usual too. I estimate that there used to be about 20 or so - now there are nearly 40.

I don't know if this is a new 'feature' or related to my header issue.

Rather than having the graphic at the top of the page, it looks like a bit like this :

RootsChat.com
home
forum
Help
Search
Profile
  Summary
  Account Settings
  Forum Profile
My Messages
  Read your messages
  Send a message
Calendar
  View Calendar
  Post Event

Logout


I have tried refreshing the page but the proper header has not returned. I have also opened rootschat on another page but that is no different.

I will try turning it off and then turning it on.  :)

I kept getting messages telling me the Rootschat wasn't safe, etc. and none of the emojis or the icons for Bold, Italics etc. were there.  However, since yesterday it has all been normal.
