    Iíve had the same problem with line spacing. Noticed the toolbar was gone when I needed to embed a tweet or link.

    I have no problem loading pages but as others reported thanking or liking a post is not working for me now. I understand very little about how the pop up ads at the bottom of the page are selected but they will require a some doing to become accustomed to.

    Thanks for the early feedback. We're still tweaking and will take this feedback and work on items still having issues. Feel free to also send me a PM if necessary.

    This is what I notice too. I just can't click "like" right now.

    Same here on the toolbar. Working on it now. Was it there for you earlier in the day?The spacing issue is an issue that vbulletin 4x has in the new browsers over the last year or so. Not much can be done until we upgrade. We do have a workaround that might work - if you hit spacebar before you start typing that sometimes "fixes" it.

    Re: Upcoming site upgrades

    One other thing - what browser are you all using if you're having problems? For me, the site works best using Chrome.

    also...I think I just fixed the toolbar. You may have to do a refresh and/or clear you cache. I did not but you ​may.

    Upcoming site upgrades

    Here are some fixes...

    Only a few threads displaying?
    1) You can change # of threads to view at very bottom of page ( view last X days)
    2) You can also change your default last # days to view in your profile.

    Editor not displaying toolbar or causing other significant problems?
    The editor should be fixed now. Do refresh if you have problems.


    Do you have other major issues?
    Any other major issues? Post them here or in the troubleshooting forum. We will work on the page load times, etc. as well.
    Also, when posting a problem, please let me know your browser (IE, Edge, Safari, Chrome, Firefox, etc), your device (PC, Mac, ipad, phone, etc).
    Please be patient as we work through the new setup! Thanks!

    I use Firefox at work and have had no problems.
    I use Edge at home and will let you know.

    I agree. I understand the whole gotta have ads thing to keep it free, but that one at the bottom gets on my nerves. LOL. It follows you when you scroll and it doesnít do any good to click out of it. Itíll appear again.
