I use firefox but have the same problem in IE7. cannot post into any existing thread and no images are displayed. The site is unreadable and text is tiny.

it is as though there are no style sheets on this site anymore. All I see is a white background and blue hyperlinks and unformatted text. I have cleared all caches, rebooted, CTRL+F5 but still no luck. The site is completely useless for me now. Anyone else getting these problems?
#3
I'm in FF 2.0.0.11 and the site is fine.
It's not as white anymore which i know some folks didn't like, the colour of rep is now orange->red, not green anymore.....

Not sure why it's not working for your guys.....

I'm in windows xp sp2 and ie7 and it's fine for me. A few changes last night though.

Try that forced refresh thingy, control and F5 ??

oops early, sorry you already did that :)
#5
I had problems logging on last night I am using IE 7 with SP2, it was a shock to the system when the changes first happened but getting use to it now.

Tried on a different PC as well under IE & FFox (latest). Still only two colours (blue on white), text only, no images at all. Run out of ideas so wont be using this site any more which is a shame as I quite like it.

Broken links csiman?


what do you mean by broken links? the hyperlinks on each page work but I get a really basic unformatted view as per screenshots. It cant find your style sheets / images by the looks of things. cheers

emma was referring to the links you posted for photobucket, they dont show your pictures, although they have been seen on another post where they work so i shouldnt worry about it, the team tend to change the subject when they cant help - lol

Cheers. Mods seem totally uninterested in my problem but thats nothing new lately. I just wish there was a similar site out there I could use as an alternative cos this site is unusable. new picture here of what I have to contend with:- http://i128.photobucket.com/albums/p181/dekeweild/ScreenShot001.jpghttp://i128.photobucket.com/albums/p181/dekeweild/ScreenShot001.jpg

emma was interested in helping you csiman, but couldn't see what your problem was because the links you provided were broken. :)

I am not stalking you, so I don't know whether you asked and were ignored, or perhaps they didn't see it?
I think it's safe to say that in this case your problem was attempted to be answered, how else would a mod know that your link was broken.

There are many questions that go un-answered. For example "Why does my son make twice as much noise going up/down the stairs, whilst only weighing half my weight"? :thinking:

Where???

Are you saying this is the exact same in both IE and FF for you?
#20
It looks like the text-only view in FireFox, but that wouldn't explain why it's the same for you in IE??

I'd SUGGEST that you try (in FireFox) going to View Menu > Page style and making sure that "Basic Page Style" is selected.

If it is then I'm still not sure what it could be. :?

Can you try clearing your cookies csiman? Not the cache - the hotukdeals cookies. If you go into the cookie management area on your browser you should be able to search for "hotukdeals" then delete all the cookies associated with that. Let me know if that works.
#22
csiman, I've had an intermittent problem in FF with pages looking exactly like the ones you've screengrabbed. For some unknown reason it usually rights itself somewhere between a few hours to two days. :? I usually have to resort to posting IE during that time because I've been reluctant to clear cookies as I didn't know a way of doing it for this site only - will try admin's advice next time it happens.

1. Already cleared cookies and cache but still no change 2. Basic style is selected 3. Same problem in all 3 browsers I have tried. Completely out of ideas now. EVERY other site I view is fine. its just HUKD that cannot locate its own CSS / Images.

After clearing cookies and restarting FF the screen looks like this for HUKD:- http://i128.photobucket.com/albums/p181/dekeweild/ScreenShot004.jpg

AND POSTS LOOK LIke this which makes life a bit tricky, especially as any deals link direct to a deal does not appear anywhere so I have to google to find any deals mentioned:- http://i128.photobucket.com/albums/p181/dekeweild/ScreenShot005.jpg

couldnt find any option for View Menu > Page style and making sure that "Basic Page Style" is selected.. I do have "Set your viewing preferences: Simple View" set though if this is what you mean?

I meant in your browser, although you have said above that "Basic Page Style is selected".

If this is happening in all 4 browsers you have tried, then that leads me to think it's some sort of conflict with something on your computer, although I can't really help any more.

Perhaps try turning off any programs that are running in your taskbar for example, one at a time, then you will possibly be able to diagnose if one of them is causing this?

Can you try accessing the css file directly:

Mine's just done the same as csiman again!!! It's even more of a mess today than ever before! :shock:

It was fine a few minutes ago, I went to another window to view another webpage (which was already open and I didn't open any new ones or new programmes) came back to refresh and I've got exactly the same as csiman's screenshots. I've had to post this in IE because not only is the site unreadable in FF, I'm also unable to post.

I know this wasn't directed at me but as I'm also having the same problem, I thought I'd answer too. :oops:

I get "400 - Bad request" in FF but IE opens up a Dreamweaver page! :?

Yes ... and I'm posting in FF! :-D A pain in the butt because everything resets itself and I have to log in again but at least there's a way out of it and other sites I'm viewing don't seem to have been affected by the clearing of cookies.
[admin]#36
So that worked? I figured it would - there's a bug in the view tracking cookie that's breaking something. I think csiman's problem is something different though.

If it happens again then rather than clearing all cookies in Tools > Options > Privacy Tab select manage cookies and search for HotUKDeals. You don't have to delete all of your cookies. :thumbsup:

I didn't, I followed Admin's previous advice and just cleared Hotdeals cookies - that's why I explained in my post that other sites weren't affected. ;-) :-D

when it happened to me yesterday, it cleared as soon as i clicked on a thread it re-appeared normal
