    I had to turn off Ad Block Pro recently with Chrome to be able to see the heading at the top of the page and the reply buttons. As a previous poster stated, no biggie as there are no ads here anyway.

    Not in GSpot. Moved to the ASK forum.

    Change your default forum skin from Advrider 2.0 to something else. The forum skin menu is at the bottom of the page in a drop down menu.

    Have updated to the latest Chrome version:
    Version 24.0.1312.56 m

    Switched to ASYLUM skin in ADV. All the other skins (except ADV 2.0) work properly.

    The missing EDIT button has re-appeared.

    Everything appears to function properly! :clap

    =================================
    During the snafu...1/20 - today,
    Switched to Firefox (version 18.0.1) and it functions properly using the ADV 2.0 skin.

    I added an Adblock exception for advrider.com and everything appears perfectly fine now. This has been the case on two computers.

    Same thing's happening to me. How do I turn off adBlocker?

    Alternatively how do I "change skins"

    I apologize for me computer ignorance.

    Thanks

    At the bottom of the screen when viewing advrider you will see a box with options similar to this


    [​IMG]



    Select one of the other options.

    Or you can go to your control panel > Settings & Options > Edit Options > Miscellaneous Options > Forum Skin then choose one from the drop down menu.

    I used the following browsers with a lot of problems viewing the forums and signing in.There was no forum header or links for me to navigate the forum or sign in.

    Mozilla FireFox
    Mozilla Aurora
    Mozilla Nightly
    Google Chrome

    I had to disable Adblock Plus to regain full viewing of the forum and to be able to sign in.Don't forget to reload the page after disabling Adblock Plus.

    I still can't get those to change and save.Everytime I come back to the forum and sign in it goes straight from the black skin to the light blue skin.

    easy fix: press addblock button in browser, click Open blockable items, then right click the link that says image/something, and click add exception to rule and make sure you select the "something.something.net/images/*" and click add exception. then reload page and fixed.

    Hi guys,

    About a week ago a number of system buttons (New Thread), (Reply). (User CP)...etc all disappeared from all of my browsers (Firefox, Sea Monkey, Explorer) for this site.

    They function they perform is still on the webpage and accessible (hence I am posting this thread) but they are simply not visible. I have not upgraded or changed any security settings nor have I altered any settings on my system that would have caused this to occur. No other webpage, forum or other site that I am on shows this condition.

    Interestingly enough the only two buttons that seem NOT to be affected are Submit New Thread and Preview Post when I am creating a thread or when I am replying to a thread.

    Thoughts, ideas or feedback would be appreciated as this is frustrating.

    Thanks,

    Eric

    Same thing here. You need to turn off your ad blocking software for the ADVrider.com domain and you should be all set.

    Thank you guys. I am sorry I posted a new thread but I searched and did not see anything coming up on this. This site has some of the best people in helping out the problems in a kind way. It is truly appreciated!

    In the end, I followed the advise and with the exception in AdBlocker all is good.

    Hope everyone has a great weekend!

    So Ive been an inmate here for 4 or 5 years,when ever I look through "New Posts" I wish that I could put a new post up there as well sometimes.
    Yet there's no "New Post" to click on at the top and put up a new one.


    Why is this? What have I done wrong?

    Thanks,confused in Alleghany.
