Weird popup menu error

Thu May 11, 2017 12:41 pm

Starting yesterday, every popup menu on the forums is now active all the time. If I close them, they reappear when I go to a different post/thread or reload the forums.

Also, when writing a post, the buttons for things like image and URL are now empty boxes.

Seems to be doing it with Firefox. Not Chrome.

Here is a screenshot of the dropdown menus issue.

I'm using chrome and I get the same thing.

Happens on Chrome for my phone also.

The popup menus are no longer popping up. But the post buttons (URL, insert image etc) are still black boxes.

Not sure if someone is working on the problem or if this is some kind of fluctuation of the problem.

Just noticed something else. Under Private Messages, the entire space is filled up with gray file folder icons. Just rows and rows of them. Can't see/read much else.

I'm working on this stuff. The current theme is not phpBB 3.2 compliant. I'm hoping a couple of CSS tweaks here and there will fix it. If not, I'll search for another theme to use. Keep posting any weird stuff you see.

The menus should be fixed. It was fixed with a CSS change so you might have to clear your browser cache in order to pick it up.

So I decided to save myself some hassle and bought a new theme. Let me know what you think.

It's supposed to be all modern and responsive. You can customize it a bit in the admin control panel - which is nice. And it came with a year of updates so we shouldn't get burned again when the forum software changes.

I believe I'm staring at the old theme. Looks the same. How do you switch?

Click on your name, go to User Control Panel, Board Preferences. The theme that works for me is 'eles'.
