Problems with Stratics, what could be the reason ?

    It is a few days that I am having this problem. When I login into Stratics' Forums, the section with my conversations, alerts and so forth does not appear on the screen. They are there, as you can see from the picture here, if I move with the mouse where the links are, the gumps show up as the imagine shows, but the links are just not visible outright as they used to be.

    I tried deleting all cookies, restarting the computer but nothing seems to work.
    What could be the problem for this glitch ?? How can I bring them back to be visible on my screen?

    Thanks for the help.

    I am using Firefox 15.0, and the monitor resolution is 800 x 600

    This has been happening since a week or so. Cannot remember exactly....
    It used to be fine with this same browser which has not been version updated and with the same monitor resolution. That is, everything in my computer is the same and yet, I have this problem anew......

    Thanks, popps. Would you try temporarily increasing your resolution? Also, is this for all themes, or only for UO Classic?

    The width is fluid, so that it adjusts to people's browser size. However, when I make my browser really small, which could correspond to low resolution, those links disappear. If I extend my browser out a bit, they reappear. (See images below).

    I see them when I use my 14" laptop, but the resolution is like 1280 wide. Think the problem is probably the super low resolution settings. Reason it may have just started happening is because we added two links--one for UO, one for other devs.

    Interesting. Not sure what that means, but it's a helpful potential lead.

    Have you tried the temporary res upgrade? Just curious.

    If I increase my res it does fix the problem but I don't like the way it makes my screen look in general so doubt I leave it that way. :(

    Ok, ty. Now we're getting somewhere. Guess I need to figure out a different way to organize top-level navigation.

    Taylor: No effect, unfortunately. But I am running with 1280 x 1024 in IE 7... I works perfectly on Chrome, but I hate Chrome...

    Yes, and a positive one ! Now all 4 links are back to show up on the display at my usual resolution.
    That means that the "developers" link was causing it. That link is usefull and handy though, any chance of putting it back without it causing the problem ?

    Yeah, but that totally removes core functionality. Going to try to figure it out.

    Eaerendil Will you please try the theme "Animate-ImprovedNavigation" to see if stuff re-appears? Just testing something.

    If Eaerendil tried this and it messed him up like it messed me up, he/she won't be able to reply back because everything they click will say "webpage you are looking for cannot be found".

    I've been using it fine on FireFox and IE? Anyway, I deactivated that one, which should pop him back to the default Animate.

    When I switched to animate-improvednavigation it made my page solid white except the words which went down a long line on the left side of my screen, would not load any graphics, and whatever link I clicked on said webpage could not be found. I had to goto stratics main webpage somewhere just to get the option at the bottom of my screen to change the theme back.

    Good info here.. sorry to hijack the thread but is there a way to remove the ads "Pwned" and "12 days of giveaways". Those are very large ads and i dont need to see them every time on every thread. Thanks

    Those are notices--not ads. I've got them set not to dismiss atm, but will change them within the coming days.
