Has the software changed? Layout?

Was away, using phone to look at this forum, 2nd - 15th Aug and last night the forum was showing, correctly, the only unread discussion with new posts was the "endless thread".

This morning the new forum is showing all threads where the last post was after 2nd Aug had new messages, including threads looked at on this PC since 15th.

Not a major problem, but threw me when I logged-on this morning.

By the way the adverts on the phone version make it really difficult to follow threads. Don't get them on my PC version I assume because have an ad-blocker installed

I access the net, either by a web browser or a tablet. My phone is stupid and doesn't know what the internet is (thank god). BTW: I'm using Brave as a browser, both on my tablet (android) and my Windows PC. I'm very pleased with it - it seems to have an ad blocker built in. I know VV asks for ad blockers to be disabled for the forum but as I make occasional donations, I reckon that's OK.

Not sure what is going on, I suspect my hosts have updated their server software and it has caused some issues. I will see what I can do to fix it.

Yep, it seems the hosts moved us to a different server system which used different locations for files which meant the forums couldn't find the theme we have been using. 

Hopefully now I know that I may be able to fix it.

Looks like we may have lost several days' posts to add insult to injury.

Seems the mobile responsiveness has been lost. That's very annoying.

Apologies to anyone on mobile!

Ok, we now have the black and gold back, and the responsiveness.  A few more things to sort and I think we're good.

FYI VV: I cannot change my avatar. When I try I get the following error message: "The attachments upload directory is not writable. Your attachment or avatar cannot be saved."

Ok, that fits.  I'll see if I can correct that.

Finally managed to get rid of the stupid graduation cap and replace it with a wasp.
