    Can Someone please help me? I am no longer able to Edit my Posts or use the Quote button. The buttons for those are simply not there. Can an admin help me please? Some other things are a little weird too but harder to explain. This is true when logged out or in.

    Or maybe you guys changed something in the past few days...I dunno. Maybe it is something with my account.

    Still works for me. What browser are you using? Are you on your phone/PC?

    Hmm, I had a problem with buttons not loading today. Have you tried clearing your browser's cache and cookies?

    Using Firefox on my PC. Tried clearing Cache and Cookies. Restarted browser. Problem persists. Tried disabling my Adblock Plus and Greesemonkey/Stylish as well.

    **UPDATE**
    Everything seems proper using Internet Explorer...so at least now I've narrowed it to a browser problem. Any more specific suggestions from this point?

    If I hover over where the buttons should be...the cursor does not change. The buttons aren't invisible....they are missing entirely.

    Looking at the page code source, I'm seeing that those button images have an alternative for their link, "reply with quote" in the case of the [​IMG] button.

    If you're not seeing that in a browser, either the alternative text or the button image, then it's obviously an issue with the browser build/version.

    Very weird. I use Firefox on PC as well and things are running properly. Are any other sites doing this or just this particular forum?

    Here, look at these screenshots below. They describe the issues better than words.

    1st Screenshot (Problem1)
    Notice their are buttons missing where Quote. Reply button missing too. Just stuff is missing that should be there.

    2nd Screenshot (Problem2)
    Whenever there is a new post....that little icon should be next to the topic title. That icon/button takes you to the last post you missed in the thread. You know what I'm talking about. Well...thats gone too.


    Does this describe the issue better? Any other suggestions?

    Hey folks, thanks for the heads up! We've actually moved a lot of images - including Phan thumbnails, AF avatars, AF icons, AF template stuff, etc - to Amazon CDN to help improve speed and stability across the sites. I'm guessing what we're experiencing is a couple oversights from this process and we'll look into this immediately. Stay tuned and hopefully it will be resolved sooner rather than later!

    Thanks for your patience!

    PS: Also note that if you update your avatar it may take a little bit to actually visually update on the site. Also related to using the CDN.

    Edit: There is some chance the thread title/dupe/broke image is related to this.

    @Rob
    THANKS for the update. If you wouldn't mind, I would appreciate it if you could post again once you believe the issues are fixed....than I can test it for you. As of now, its kind of a pain browsing around here with my problems.

    Again, thanks for the response.

    This issue has now disappeared, at least for me. Anyone else still seeing it?

    Looking around it does appear that we're back to normal in that department. ;)




    for now

    Yeah the text link issue is gone. Can anyone confirm the broken image issue is also fixed?
