OK, we're tentatively back. Please report the first sign of related-oddness here.

I was showing as logged in as Skelter and O Boogie and the forum front page looks a little odd.

I know. I think it's just a display error, and nobody will actually be logged in as anyone else. Try posting and it should do it under the correct account.

It's also sometimes showing the mobile version to people visiting on desktop, and vice versa. That's a similar caching issue. The cache clears periodically (not sure how often), and the next person to visit essentially 'builds' the forum for the duration of that cached version. Depending on their username and device, it affects subsequent users.

I'm going to keep the forum open for the time being so I can better troubleshoot this. My hosts are aware of the issue.

I was still showing up as someone else and the front page was still wrong but refreshing with control and R seemed to fix it for now.

Seems fine on this end now. Thanks for fixing this all @Joe, must have been an absolute nightmare - especially when its an outside fault that causes the meltdown.

The code shows for italics in the post when I am in edit mode (ie when writing the post), but the letters don't display in italics when the post is showing on the forum. Bold and underline are showing correctly.

Hmm. Could you use the Rich Text editor instead? It definitely works. Not sure why the HTML editor wouldn't, sorry.

Yay I'm not @Joe any more. It said you had an awful lot of mail in your inbox! I suppose it's karma, everyone's been me and now I've had a go at everyone else a-hard-days-night-george-9

I'm like Necko only I'm a bassist ukulele guitar synthesizer kazoo penguin and also everyone. Or is everyone me? Now I'm a confused bassist ukulele guitar synthesizer kazoo penguin everyone who is definitely not @Joe.  This has been true for 2016 & 2017 Sig-Badge.png but I may have to get more specific in the future.

This is an oddity on the main site, @Joe. Seems like another unintended side-effect, and you may not have noticed it yet. Seems unlikely it's only affecting one article.

First page of your Pepper album article:

This is fixed now. Thanks for reporting it. I'm hopeful that it's also fixed the quoting problems, though I'll need to restyle them and run some tests.

OK, that was quicker than I thought. Quotes are better now – no need to insert anything before them. Thanks to @Ron Nasty and @Starr Shine? for putting me on the right track. The grey-on-grey text isn't brilliant, so I'll try to fix that next.

The html editor has worked so much better for me on mobile (which I use a lot). It is ok if the only problem I have is with the italics.

Edit: having the new and unread topics drop down menu for mobile is a much higher priority.

I'm not sure if this is worth being bothered about, but I noticed this in my list of unread posts. Seems to me it used to indicate in which Forum the topic was featured. Now, it lists "New and Unread Posts" as the Forum for each thread. If you have bigger fish to fry, this can definitely wait.

@Joe, I still have no way of closing images opened in the thread

Ok. That's just bizarre. I can close my own image and I can close the one AG posted at the top but i cannot close the one Zig posted.
