    What's happened to the forum layout??
    Didn't know where to place this post/thread, so I thought I'd try here.

    The last two days, when I come to ABW and click on "Forums," I no longer get the "Unread Posts" link/option at the top of the page. Instead, the top links are "Home" "Forums" "Marketplace" "ABW Connet" "Advertise" -- then "User CP" and "Quick Links" show dropped down below "Advertise" so they are in the blue colored bar and almost don't even show up. Further below the "Quick Links" link the "XX Unread Posts" and "Advanced Search" links show up, but they are almost unreadable because they are hanging down as light-grey colored type on the blue bar background.

    My usual routine when I come to ABW is start that the Home page, click "Forums," then click on the new/unread posts link.

    This makes it almost impossible for my aging eyes to see and do that.

    What's gone wrong with the forum layout to produce this. (If it's intentional, it's a stupid idea and I really wish whoever did it will reconsider and change it back. )

    Rumor has it they upgraded the version of vBulletin. I saw the same but it went away next time I logged in.

    The reality did not match the prototype. Hope it's all fixed soon.

    I just came back here -- about 45 minutes after I started this thread -- and all the links are visible now and as they should be at the top of the page.

    I didn't clear cookies, log out and back in, or anything else. It just seems to have been fixed, or at least fixed for my browser (Chrome) and/or my sparkling personality.

    OK, I came here just now and it was doing the wacky layout thing again. I hit Ctl+R on my PC to refresh my browser cache -- and it straightened out.

    But it was working all right yesterday when I posted the message just above. Does this mean I'll need to refresh every time I come to the site?? Never had to do that before, so I wanted to let you all know something's probably still amiss.

    It seems okay now. When I click the unread post, all links are show up. Maybe you need to clear your cache then try again.

    Yes, it seems to be working fine for me again. Don't know what the deal was.

    One of my co-workers was asking me about this yesterday, as the links on his page are all messed up making them difficult to navigate. It doens't seem to be resolved yet.
