Bug I can not use this site appropriately

  1. Feb 7, 2013 #1
    It is about a month that I can not see the names beside links so I can not use this site appropriately. Also it is not possible for me to use some tools such as math symbols. For example just now I can not see the tools above this window except five of them which also can not be opened. What should I do to solve the problem?

    hi hokhani! :smile:

    what is your operating system? and your browser?

    (and is javascript enabled in your "preferences"?)

    did you change anything in the last month?

    Hi, I haven't changed anything. I used many other computers with deferent windows(XP,7) but they also showed this problem.

    I'm not sure what "tools" you're talking about? Could you please take a screenshot and post it here?

    Ok. For instance I can not see the attach tool and so I can not send the picture. Could you please give me an email to send for you a picture of my page?

    That happened on my laptop when the CDN thing went down.

    I had to clear my cache and cookies and all that type of thing and then it worked again.

    Well, as everyone else is not reporting problems, it is most likely related to your system, not to the forum itself.

    Looks like the images are not downloaded at all. Under Opera it is possible to switch image downloading off to save on bandwidth, but I can't find anything like that for Chrome (you are using Chrome, aren't you?)

    Yes, this is the problem we had the other day. Try clearing your cache and deleting cookies.

    This does not solve the problem, but you do not have to use those buttons, everything you can do there can be done manually (by typing those codes) as well. The BB-Codes are explained somewhere in the board software, and math tags have some tutorial here as well.
