Missing Forum info at top of pages

Anyone else getting this problem today? All the usual info is missing from the top of the page. It was fine yesterday.

Re: Missing Forum info at top of pages

My pages look like your screen shot .... isn't that normal?
What do you think is missing?


Ahh ..... do mean forum and sub-form file tree information?

Re: Missing Forum info at top of pages

Yes, the forum, sub-forum, thread info. It's all missing today. If I want to get back to the main page of the forum I have to click on Forum at the top of the page. Usually I use the English Forum Switzerland bit.

Re: Missing Forum info at top of pages

As far as I can tell bits of the forum are switched off at random by the admins to keep us on our toes. Usually it's quoting or smilies. Today it's the forum structure

Re: Missing Forum info at top of pages

Indeed it has changed. Here is a picture, not from the English Forum, but another site that uses the same 'vBulletin' software version:

Re: Missing Forum info at top of pages

Yes, that's how it should be, but isn't anymore.

Wonder if it's been caused by them trying to fix the preview post problem - that's still not been entirely sorted out yet.

Re: Missing Forum info at top of pages

Still no structure/tree showing (which, undoubtedly, was speeding up navigation through the forum/sub-forums)...
Any insight, Mods? Will that be restored?

Re: Missing Forum info at top of pages

I had never even noticed it was there let alone noticed it was missing so I guess that means I never used it either.

This week we migrated to a new ad server.

If you log out, and switch off your ad blocker, you'll notice that the ads are not too bad now. Previously they were shocking, they'd take ages to load and the screen would flicker. There were also intermittent malware warnings.

Anyway, in the course of fixing that, something else got broken. Two steps forward one step back. Breadcrumbs will be fixed next week though.

Indeed. From the Brothers Grimm story of 'Hansel and Gretel'. Breadcrumbs were, and are, an important navigation aid. It looks like the hungry birds have been scavenging on the EF servers.

Re: Missing Forum info at top of pages

So, having not received any e-mail notifications of new posts since 14.49 yesterday, it's suddenly sprung into life again when I went back on my PC at 22.15 today. Another hiccup in the system it seems.

I'd ask for a refund if I were you.

Re: Missing Forum info at top of pages

I know it's not ideal, but if you scroll to the bottom of a thread, then the "Forum Jump" function defaults to the parent forum.

Sub-forum names not showing up on threads etc

Admins / Mods,

I noticed today that the Sub-forum names like Daily Life etc doesn't show up when you're on a specific thread name.

Is there a problem? Is this on purpose?
