    In other words, recreating threads would not solve temporary infrastructural glitches,

    This temporary 'infrastructural glitch' has been going on for nearly four weeks now Roberto. Recreating certain threads allows us to use them normally.

    As far I can see, the issue I referred to has been fixed now. I no longer see "connecting to google analytics" and the like anymore, the page loading indicator is not continuing to spin as few hours ago. I never noticed the same symptoms in days before, to be straight honest.

  • In reply to Roberto M:

    I think we are talking about two different problems here Roberto.

    I see posters in regular threads reporting the dreaded blank page today. I'm under the impression there's something else slowing down the forum, I see that pages take ages to load and if it happens that the post is the first in a new page one might believe it's the issue seen many times before.

    There was some "external disturbance" today causing something which might have been confused with "blank pages" seen many times. This is what I've read in the "Satellite Tracked Ospreys (non-LG) Aug 2012" thread (note that complaints are on top of a new page) and wanted to warn about a likely different cause. Apologies if it wasn't clear.

    For the last few days, I've been unable to access Rich Formatting. If I click on "Use rich formatting", I get the "Quote" link and a reply box. I cannot see or access the Rich Formatting Toolbar. I can post, but I can't use any rich formatting functions (inserting photos, for example, or using bold/italic).

    Did I miss a memo; has something changed? I'm running Windows 7 Home Premium SP 1 on a Dell XPS 8300 Desktop PC, using Internet Explorer 11 with a McAfee Security Suite. I mention McAfee because I recently changed to that suite from AVG, and I wondered whether that's the issue. Anybody have any ideas? Thanks.

    BTW: I know that McAfee is often vilified, but this is a comprehensive suite provided free by my broadband provider and offers more levels of protection than the free program I was using.

    Diane. Have you checked your Setting?  These are up at top right. Sometimes people slip back into basic mode.
