The site/forums is not showing correctly on one of my older computers with XP/Chrome (it’s still working in Firefox). It’s off for a month or so, before that it was working correctly.

I’m in the same boat here as regards my XP system (I do have another, my current Win 7 which is going to go the same way).
I’m sorry, I don’t know what to suggest to help.  Cry

I don’t know what Ivo’s position is on this, but XP’s been out of support for 6 years now, and Windows 7 has recently gone out of support itself. There have been some noticable changes to make this site work better on mobile devices, and changes to the design generally. Those changes aren’t necessarily compatible with older versions of Chrome/Firefox.

Your internet browsing experience as a whole will only get worse as time goes on, as more sites drop support for ageing technology. Some sites are now dropping support for Internet Explorer completely, not just older versions.

(I still have Firefox 3.6 installed for one thing I use, as it’s not supported in newer versions, so I do feel your pain somewhat).

What version of Firefox/Chrome do you have installed (the one that gives issues)? I could see if it’s an easy fix.

I do test on Edge, Firefox, Chrome and Internet Explorer but there are limits to what I can test as a 1 man show :-)

I’m on Chrome Version 49.0.2623.112 (I believe the latest supported by XP). This is how forum is showing up, and the main page as well, with white background and no images/avatars.

Is it still like this currently? I’m trying to see if I can get a copy. For reference, I’m on Chrome 80 :-)

I’m testing on Chrome 49 now, on Windows and the forum actually works fine. Can you press CTRL+SHIFT+I and go to “Console” and tell me what error it displays?

Looking at your screen it appears to not be loading style, just want to understand why.

Hey, the forum now works ok! This is what console tells me while I browse the forum:

Picture 2

The main page of the site still shows with some thumbnails missing when you scroll the page:

And when you enter the review page, with these errors on console:

Review page


But at least the forum works fine, thanks! Content

You’re welcome! I have an idea what setting fixed things, so I’ll keep an eye on it. Noticed the images on the main page, lazy loading isn’t working on Chrome 49 (or older browsers) so I’ll look into how I can fallback.

Thanks again for reporting, I’ll always look into things once I know them!

If you have trouble again, you might try using Opera web browser. I’d had pretty good success with it on XP.
