    It seems as though there are empty comments. Other pictures load, but while looking around, I have found this twice. Running on a Samsung Galaxy S8. I even turned my phone off and back on again. No difference.

    Thank you. One appears to be a broken link but we'll check these out further. Thanks again :)

    Please let us know if you are still having issues today. If so, what issues specifically? Are you getting an error message? Desktop version or mobile or both?
    Thank you

    Mobile on my Google Pixel using Google Chrome. Don't have any problems roaming / surfing with the store. But on the forum using mobile it takes a while for things to load. For example if I click Porch, the next page will come up. If I try to click the first link say "Tomorrow is the 10" .. it will return with one of the sticky threads instead. It takes a while for a URL / thread link to be highlighted.

    Are you using any browser add-ons? Is this happening on the mobile version or full site version or both? Thanks.
    Anyone else having this specific issue?

    Frankly, I don't really use the mobile version in any case, because it barely works for posting - it's an exercise in frustration. You can't even get the cursor to the proper place half the time.

    No add-ons. Using Google Chrome mobile on my Google Pixel phone.

    The site is still glitchy. Google Chrome on Google Pixel. Any help would be great.

    Thanks!

    My convenient option is mobile, and the forum is unreliable for correct spelling, and when I do need to edit, it creates letters that I didn't type and deletes the ones that I did

    I have that, too.  Mobile only, I believe.

    If I'm not logged into my account the forum is very fast to view on mobile. No loading at all. But when logged in, the forum is very slow to view. Takes a while to load.

    Huzzah!!! The forum is now working smoothly on the Google Pixel Chrome browser.  =)

    The new and latest security patch from Google last night fixed everything.

    I’ve gotten this a number of times today as well.

    Me too.

    I'll take good gateway to go, please!

    Thank you. Please let us know if you continue to get this error.

    Not a glitch, but a weirdness. Has anyone else noticed that when you yourself comment on a thread, it is showing as a new thread comment for you? Now when I comment, I see a new comment and click on the thread, it's me.

    Yes, that too.

    And, I got signed out from the forums on my phone...no biggie, but when I signed back in, it led me to the main page only and still left me logged out here (now on my laptop).

    I have been having problems with login on my android for quite a while now (probably a couple of months!). It won't keep me logged in, even when I select the keep me logged in box.
    I go to the forum, I'm not logged in like I should be. So I select sign in, enter my login info, and then it just redirects to the login page again, and the fields are  blank. So then I have to close the browser, open the browser again, and my login info is now showing, and I can login. But once I go back into the forum a little later, I'm logged out again, and I have to go through the whole thing again. Very frustrating. Help!

    Some things that I have posted have also saved to drafts.  I check.  So, it isn't always draft dumping when you post. 

    Posting on old iMac this morning. Yup.  Up to date.

    Just a heads up...
