    Hi everyone,

    We are noticing multiple threads regarding various issues that users have come across, we really do appreciate all the threads as it helps us to see what needs improving. To help us and yourselves we are going to have this sticky thread at the top of the forum, if you see any issues then please place them in this thread as we will then have one thread to go to for all issues and glitches, which will make it much easier for us and will allow us to fix all the issues that you find, quicker.

    When posting an issue that you have found could you please include which device you are using and which browser this will help us with the issue.

    We do know there was a couple of issues yesterday regarding text colour, and our voting system, these were due to some testing on our end with our caching system, this has now been reverted and should be fixed.

    We are working on a very big project currently, which should improve our site speed and alot of the issues, we will update you once we are close to completing this project.

    Thank you for all the help and interaction.

    This very thread has an issue for me on chrome on a chromebook – title and all text is black on a black background. Fine on chrome on my android phone.

    on Chrome on Google Pixel 5 running Android 14 I can’t see any of the quote/format buttons but the like function is back.

    Yesterday was dire, numerous issues over and above those you mention. Including a complete inability to post for a few hours. Either all the text I typed was deleted when pressing submit or just the first word was left. Over and over again, very frustrating! Thanks for the update and good luck with your efforts, I think you have a lot of work to do!

    Buttons above the text box are sometimes not there at all, Bold, Italic etc etc

    Chromebook, ChromeOS Version 122.0.6261.98 (Official Build) beta (64-bit)

    Edit: Pages sometimes take an age to load, not always though, despite a 175Mbps connection

    Edit 2: That first edit took at least 45 seconds to load

    General suggestion for people posting issues: clear your cache & cookies first and see if it still occurs, to get rid of any old stuff! Or the quick version – try the site in your browser’s private mode.

    eg @quentyn above, I have a similar setup and none of those issues (at least, not today 😋) so it might be you rather than the site.

    I’m still getting the bad gateway messages, 3 or 4 times so far this morning.

    2nd one, is there a recommended browser for mobile?  Chrome on IOS gives me a “site is not secure” message and Safari is incredibly slow.

    I can’t upload images to a classified ad. It gets to 100% then stays there and tells me I haven’t uploaded any when I go to preview. Tried this on chrome, firefox and edge, on 4G and on wifi. The files are only 1.2mb each.

    I’ve uploaded files to ads here before which looking back at them are larger than the ones I want to upload currently.

    How about the cookie choice box becoming GDPR compliant? If one click for “accept all” there should be one click for “reject all”. Lots of the American websites I visit can manage to get this right.

    Using Chrome on Oneplus Nord running Android 11. Cookies and cache cleared periodically, including today.

    I used to have an option whether to use standard or fancy editor in forum posts/replies or not.  I have not selected fancy editor in preferences, but this is all I see, as per below. Not sure if this is by design or an issue.

    I’ve not had any of the buttons on the top of the reply box (quote, image etc) for about two weeks now.
    It’s just a white box.

    Wasn’t able to upload images to Classifieds a couple of weeks ago and finally gave up trying.

    @dirkpitt74 & @Marko what size image are you trying to upload, what file type is the image and which browser are you using?

    Chrome, Windows, dark theme.

    The editor that isn’t TinyMCE has been missing its toolbar for weeks. When it did work, buttons like ‘Link’ display white text on a white background.

    The “fancy” editor is idiosyncratic at best, you never quite know what it’s actually going to post.

    The help tooltip for the fancy editor in preferences is hilarious. I always wondered how buttons work.

    I’ve not been able to style, quote, link test for ages in Chrome. Just tried in Safari and the editing is available, but it’s just the ‘new’ WYSIWYG editor, not the old and reliable one.

    +1 for bringing back the basic editor.

    iPhone and iPad using safari, when clicking on a post  subject title more often than not nothing happens, have to refresh page and try again.

    Also, slightly annoying, occasionally the sign up thing for daily digest takes over and causes my device to ask me to sign in (enter my email address) even though I haven’t clicked on it to enter email.

    windows desktop – I havent got a start new thread button

    I assumed my workplace had finally cottoned on to the fact I spend too much time on here and had blocked functionality! Maybe not.

    The ability to post a comment/question on classified items has disappeared for me. Couldn’t buy something even if I wanted to.

    I would prefer to be able to start a thread from either the bike, chat or combined forum, and then select the appropriate forum from a dropdown box.  At the moment you go looking for the new thread box and can’t find it, then realise you need to go to the bike forum first. I never use the chat or bike forum/filter to browse, but have to go there to post!

    In the text box (this one I’m typing into) I get zero buttons – so block quote, bold, images etc aren’t options unless you know the html code for (blockquote) etc

    Can only get the fancy editor (that makes a complete mess of formatting) rather than the standard editor (where you can see and control all the tags).

    Is the “non-fancy” editor coming back?

    Gave up trying to use the site earlier today with constant bad gateway errors.

    Quoting doesn’t work

    Also, I haven’t got a create new topic button, it’s been missing for ages & I haven’t done anything about it.

    I have an intermittent problem where tapping on the >> symbol to go to last page of a thread, the symbol goes dark, but the only result is a ‘hang’ ie nowt actually happens. I can open first page, then tap the last page number in a box , and it’ll then work fine, but first attempt didn’t. (Most commonly , but not exclusively, its the Trump thread) Haven’t been able to reliably replicate it yet.

    Android phone with Chrome browser as below:-

    20240405_203539

    On the laptop, the problem doesn’t occur.

    Images people have uploaded don’t show up for me.

    When I open any broken image link in a new tab, it says

    <Error>
    <script/>
    RequestHeaderSectionTooLarge
    <Message>Your request header section exceeds the maximum allowed size.</Message>
    <MaxSizeAllowed>8192</MaxSizeAllowed>

    </Error>

    But works fine in a private browsing window.

    Useful to know and might fix one issue for one person, but the underlying issue of how the cache/cookies got into a bad state will remain.

    I haven’t seen the quote, image, bold, italic and link boxes for a couple of weeks now.

    I turned the fancy editor on in my preferences and that didn’t work either.

    On safari on both my iPhone and iPad.

    Reading any post with a quote of a previous comment, that quote box is black with black text meaning you can’t read it unless you put screen brightness on max, get some glasses, a magnifying glass and squint. Never used to be like that.

    on my iPhone at least
