I am having the same problems but check this out-when I did a search for “sidebar” to see if there was a post about what was going on, the sidebar appeared on the search page. Still no sidebar on the regular news page for me.

I have 'replies' set to 50/page.

On other threads I've viewed where the first page is truncated, once it hits 50+ posts and the highlighted numbers appear up top for 'next page', I'm able to see the posts on the next page.

Whether those will also become truncated after accumulating s'more posts remains to be seen, but something is undoubtedly hosed.

Btw, Merry Christmas to the Robinson crew !

I can’t even scroll to the bottom of this page. I’m using a brand new HP120 with windows8. Would that have anything to do with this problem? Any adjustments I can make? I’m still kinda computer illiterate after all these years. :(

It fixed it fully for me but I had two settings that needed to be changed from 50 to 20, not just one.

Seeing as how the page truncation thing may be happening here too, fourteen FReepers may have already told you that the problem isn't on your end.
The site is apparently undergoing some flavor of Christmas Eve hosing.

No... Everything’s working fine for me. You must be on the “naughty” list.

right sidebar does not show at all

I had a lot of trouble yesterday but I think it was
caused by the high winds affecting the cell towers.
I’m on verison mifi and at the edge of tower area.
Was ready to throw mifi unit out and drive over it
but it’s working a little better today, may go in
after the holidays and see if I can get a replacement.

Did notice some threads not loading completely...

I’ve got headlines, no text below it, and right sidebar. Pings page is still truncated. I’ve never had a left sidebar.

Have you tried restarting your browser? Clearing cache? Maybe restarting the machine to “burp” it? Just a thought.

Me either. I get part of the page and it stops loading in the middle of a random post. The rest of the page never loads.

Hey, I know you probably heard this before, but are you logged in? I was logged out somehow and then logged back in, and shazam, the sidebars came back.

Yeah, I’m logged in or I couldn’t post. Matter of fact, I’ve had to log in a couple times today as we’ve been having computer issues and it’s crashed.

But maybe I’ll try just for the fun of it anyway. It’s a good idea.

I can only get to the 4th post I made on the Catholic Daily Readings pages. Does that sound like what is happening with you?

And here I thought it was my computer!

Well, I don’t know, I had no sidebars, and the posts were truncated. I saw that I was logged out, so I logged back in and then the sidebars came back.

I did it and it didn’t change anything.

And it’s only certain pages which do this.

I’ll just check back later.

I can only view a few of my pings and looks like others are having that problem, too.

That hamster needs some vitamins! :)

Christmas Eve Elves at it again? :)

Jim has notified John about the glitch. Jim has also posted some ideas plus a possible workaround here:

Well before I went to the NORAD Santa Tracker, I saw no side bar. Now the side bar is back.
