Same here.
Me too. There's just random headings of threads down the left hand side instead of the latest posts. What's happened?

Somebody trying to be clever and redesign the site and messing it up.  Too many of us on here are too old to cope with change. I don't care about Bury FC - so why is it on the main links thingy?

I am not trying to be 'clever' the advert blocks have caused problems, as did the mobile version when l upgraded. I had to disable the 'front page' with 'Board News' on so everyone goes to the Forum page now. As for the blocks on the left l was experimenting between 'Board News' 'New Topics' and 'Recent Posts' to see which works better.
The 'Bury FC' is there because it was the top item in 'Off Topic' at that time.

Thanks Martin, I was beginning to panic at the prospect of being deprived of my H&V fix !   :)

”Privacy settings”. That little blue thingy that’s appeared bottom left of the screen. If you notice it, it gives you more chances to stop your history being shared with who-knows-who. But once you’ve rejected all, can you please make it go away?
