    I usually get up in the morning, grab a cup of coffee, crank up the laptop and go to Phandroid. I read the news and then click on the forums link at the top of the page.
    Today i open Phandroid read the news, but no link to forums can be found. I got here by opening the contact us link at the top of the page and found a link to the forums in there.
    Where Have the other links gone?????

    It looks ok to me:

    Is that the link you're talking about?

    What browser/OS are you using? Have you tried the standard clearing cache etc?

    Yep, that's the one. That whole bar was/is missing. and I can't figure out how to take a screen shot from this laptop.

    Android Phone is what it looks like to me.
    I'm running linux mint 14 with chrome browser. I've been on this setup for several months now and all has been working great, until this morning. i haven't cleaned cache yet but i will do that.

    Still an issue? I'm clicking your link and seeing what I saw when I posted the screenshot in the morning.

    Are you using an ad blocker? I'm noticing no adverts in your pic where there are in mine.

    Why yes I am. AdBlock, chrome extension.

    like i said before, this morning was the firsts time i've ever experienced this issue. if no one else is having issues, there must be something that has changed on my end (I just don't for the life of me know what). but i could go ahead and bookmark the forums for future use and i have tapatalk and the phandroid app on all my android devices, so i'm not exactly out in the dark.

    Look what happens when I add the extension:

    So, yeah something's changed in adblock. If you add the site as an exemption, that should sort it. :)

    I'll do that. Thanks for all your help.

    Just a side note, I don't want to completely do away with adblock simply because is blocks so much junk on facebook (I have seen as many as 44 items blocked once).

    Windows? Windows looks fine for me too, but switch to Ubuntu and the bar isn't there.

    Mamawm, if you click the adblock icon next to the address bar, there's an option to stop blocking on specific pages.

    Just noticed this now on my Chromebook. Don't have my Windows lappy to test it out.
    This is a bummer through.
    Since ChromeOS is a version of Linux like Ubuntu, that me be the cause. Any idea is AdBlock was updated and to restore and older version?

    Is it affecting other pages too bread? Can you add phandroid as an exemption?

    just a heads up from my end. it does not seem to affect any other pages that i visit (ex: android central is ok and their layout is similar). but setting up phandroid as an exception worked and now renders as it should. it looks like the last update to adblock was 7/11 but the issue didn't happen until yesterday, so that doesn't appear to be the cause.

    Update, with AdBlock enabled, I can't even read the articles on Phandroid. When I click on an article, it shows links to other articles and then the comments. Beautiful.

    According to the settings page, the two default filter lists were last updated 5 hours ago and 6 days ago.

    Just wanted to pop in and report I'm seeing this issue with Chromium on ArchLinux. Will go with disabling AdBlock for this site for now but I didn't really notice this issue until this morning
