In progress Forum went weird

Post by Deadlydoze on Sat Aug 24, 2013 12:21 am

Just yesterday a member reported, that the buttons in the navbar are missing for him ( I was fine at the time) similar happened to me just later that day, all buttons are gone but one, and colours are weird, some text changed colour as well. Tried rolling back the theme via the panel didnt solve it, I really have no clue what is going in. I did not edit or do anything with the forum for quite some time (months).
Any clues?


Edit: Cursor also changes when its not supposed to. Tried fiddling with css with no avail, previously the navbar buttons where added entirely through css, I just added them via pics management, therefore loosing the animations etc.

Already tried. And the fact that it happened to a lot of people on the same day (everyone by now) kinda tells the story that its not the case with browser caches.

It feels like it rolled back to an earlier state or can it be a problem with servimg? All the icons are hosted there, although I tried rehosting it on servimg again, but nothing.

What do you mean by occurred? If you asking, if I have made any changes my self - I didn't for a long time now, at least 3 months or so I haven't touched the CSS or Admin settings.
Some members actually had this problem for a long time, for me and a few others this happened only the day before I made this post.
Mainly its the buttons, Dark red text - should be grey, and some of the inner shadow boxes are 'off'.
It took me a while to do everything and I don't remember much now ;D, although quick look at the css - Didn't look that any code changed there, at least as far as the buttons go. 
That's why I am having hard time figuring out what is the problem. If I'll find some screens with the previous I will post them here.

Edit1: Also note how the mouse pointer only changes in a few areas, was fine before this.
Here are some screen my member sent me when this occurred:

How it looks for me at this moment:

Note the text color difference, mine is red and his is gray, thats where the weird part comes in.

Is this happening in all browsers (Firefox, IE, Chrome, etc.)?

At least on IE and Chrome it looks the same, so I would say yes.

Hi,

As far as I know, servimg been having some loading issues. I don't know if that's somehow tied up with your issues, try hosting them at photobucket, tinypic, etc..

For the curson, do you want it to change when hovering or do you want to have the cursor *red one* showing at all times?

There were/are 3 diff cursors based the are you are hovering over, like type(with a red link in the middle),link (with a red tip) and normal.

I think I found the problem for the text colors, it seems that the forum takes priority from the 'Colors' Tab rather than the CSS style sheet even with !important tag.
Any ideas how to change that?

Hi there I'm with Sir Chivas there i think it could be the servimg account that is playing up!! I myself use photobucket to host all my buttons on there.

also if the sking was off of Hitskin then the member that made the skin could have removed then items from there Host pic account and then your find that your buttons will be lost to.

The best way around this problem is to host the pic's Buttons your self when getting any skin from anyone.

If it does, then change the colors there.
