After having problems accessing the site yesterday I have a couple of questions:

On the forum pages I see a new layout, different menu style, etc. However, on my portfolio page (accessed from the link on Forum page - ie. My portfolio) I see the old style.

Is that correct? I would have thought the new style would be site wide.

Not looked in many other places on the site as I still have quite slow access due to internet USB stick not getting a full signal.

Hi Cheryl.
The upgrade is taking place a little bit at a time rather than all at once like the last upgrade.
So some of the site will still be the old look.

I believe it is ongoing Cheryl Grin

Not sure myself when the full transition takes place.
There has been plenty of discussion /controversy over the upgrades so far Smile

Fine Doug, kind of makes sense, just wondered after all the problems I had yesterday if something was being cached. As it was before I uploaded anything new to the page I could not be sure.

The new layout had of course been in sight for a while in the reports section, so it wasn't that much of a shock.

Thanks Adrian. My link is too slow to work through the other thread looking for the answer.

If you think there may be something that has maybe been cached and perhaps hasn't loaded as it should just try Ctrl+F5 to reload the whole page rather than just refreshing it.

I'd tried that, but because sometimes the page reload was failing completely I wasn't sure. Anyway all clarified now.

I have sent a report about a different issue though. Since the upgrade I can see critique medals in the forum even though I have it set to "hide medals".

No, but after a long day even I forget basic things.
(Damn! Now they all know I'm not perfect... Sad)

Its funny how quite a lot of the site was changed to the new layout bit by bit, yet hardly anyone noticed till they did the forums. It's like we just sit in the forums chatting all day or something Smile

But the encouraging thing is that for those that did notice the "Team" have read, replied & in some cases implemented changes from feedback / suggestions made via the "Report" feature of the site Smile
