New forum layout (hidden subjects)?
« on: April 02, 2021, 07:51:21 PM »
As of a short while ago, the main forum page has begun to show the sub-forum headings, but no longer displays any details about the most recently active threads. Was that intentional? The short list of the few most recent topics under each sub-forum used to be useful, for deciding which sub-forums to check. Now, one must go into each sub-forum, before being able to check what is newish, which is a bit less convenient for quick browsing...

I guess they have broken something while taking the code that added the banner adverts under posts out...

No, the thread in the WW2 forum with the cyrillic text destroyed the title page formatting. Until it is changed the frontpage will break each time that thread is the last commented.

Yes, I just posted about this in said thread. It stretches the forum margins on my laptop whenever someone posts to that thread.

Strangely enough, I had no issues on my devices (mainly Firefox on Android and under Windows). Must be an issue with text character coding, either here or in the receiving browser - had some issues with that in Thunderbird recently (though unrelated).

That IS strange. It didn't seem to like my Firefox on Windows.
