Thanks for your help @Ahhh Girl ! This is what I am seeing. If I position the cursor over the blank space I see

I use Safari for my browser. Maybe the forum doesn't support that anymore? The issue started sometime between 5/2018 and 11/2019, so it might be hard to diagnose. ahdn_ringo_09

Works fine for me on chrome on both desktop and mobile... perhaps it's a slow internet connection?

I just checked in Safari and could see the still from the Ed Sullivan Show. Are you running any extensions (NoScript etc) that might be blocking embedded videos?

Out of all of those, Preview button should be added back. Since you can't delete posts, you can't really check see if your post has correct formatting before people see it.

 

Editing isn't as effective since people can see and comment on the failed post which can derail conversation or derail PMs.

  

@Starr Shine? I've re-added the Preview button. Last year I disabled various features because cumulatively they were slowing down the forum quite considerably. On its own the Preview button shouldn't add much overhead so it's back now. I'm not planning to reintroduce anything else because I want things to run as smoothly as possible.

I can see the vid still when I use Chrome, so the problemo is with my system. I prefer Safari, so I may try reloading it this weekend. I'm still running Yosemite, so that may also be the cause.

@Joe, I've been getting the below issue at various times over the last few days, five or six at least so its not the odd happening.

For some reason, it says that there are 3 topics with unread posts, but when I go to view them, there are only two.

I tried refreshing the page just in case it somehow hadn't registered that the topic I was in at the moment was read, but nothing changed.

That happens occasionally. Just hit the mark all topics read button, that fixes it.

Today mmm tagged me in the McCartney thread, and when I clicked on the notification it said I wasn't allowed to view the page.  However, when I clicked on the thread in the unread list it worked fine.  Also a few minutes later Dingle Lad tagged me in the EP Box thread and that notification link worked fine.  Not sure if this was a one time glitch or not.  Just letting @Joe know it happened.  I'll say something else if it happens in the future/becomes a frequently reoccurring thing.

Posts in the 'McCartney' thread were moved today which may be why the @ failed, any I posted were old and linked to elsewhere previously. Apologies if that's the case.

I was reading this page, when I noticed that in one post, WSC's signature was missing:

When I got down to the bottom of the page, not only was the usual info (top posters, new members, etc.) combined into one list, but WSC's missing signature was jumbled in with it, too:

Even refreshing the page or leaving it entirely and then returning to it doesn't change anything. Huh.a-hard-days-night-paul-10

For whatever reason it seems like it's not loading the right css file, or something like that.
