Temporary workaround for missing sidebar and truncated pages problem
FR personal preferences ^

Posted on 05/31/2013 8:52:04 AM PDT by Jim Robinson

Sorry that our recurring problem is back again. Have called and left messages for John, but haven't heard back yet. Hopefully he will check in soon.

Meanwhile, set your personal preference to 20 messages per page and 20 results per page and it should work.

Click "Account" at the top of the latest posts page, then "My Preferences."

Jim

Jim,

That doesn’t seem to help.

I even logged out and logged back in.

Worked for me. Set my preferences to 20 then hit the refresh button.

Thanks, Jim!

Also turning off the sidebars helps.

20 messages per page fixed the truncating problem. Thanks, Jim! You da MAN!

Increase the monthly amount, maybe it’ll work for you then. ;-)

I’m using Firefox. The sidebar has been truncated, but the body of the pages looks normal.

My prefs are set at 50. But I just opened a thread with 43 replies. I was only able to view 12, and the page was full. No “Next Page” or anything to allow me to see the other 31 responses.

Gad I love that photo. It makes me feel just like the lady in the background who is holding the small flag.

I never notice when the problem occurs as long ago when we had to do that procedure I left it set as described in the above post. I’m never aware when the “problem” recurs unless I see a post like this one that tells me there is a problem.

Helped for a couple of refreshes, and then back to the original situation.

Prayers with John as he works it out.

Sometimes it works, most of the time it makes no difference.

“...set your personal preference to 20 messages per page and 20 results per page...”

I started using those settings, to include turning off the sidebars, some time ago and have no problems loading pages. If I really need to read more than 20 messages, it’s easy to load an additional 20 as I go.

I use Firefox also but am okay at 50 per page. Sidebar I have only front/extended set at 5 per and they display fine.

Seems like this issue keeps recurring periodically, which means the true root cause has not been found yet unfortunately.

Yeah, he knows what the root cause is, just hasn’t settled on an appropriate permanent fix. Hardware, software or manware. Hopefully he’ll decide soon.

I have cut back to 20 a long time ago. The pages load a bit quicker and I don’t mind having to move on.

My sidebar seems to be about the same as yours.
