Forum interface issues

About a week ago the text editing tools disappeared, the post message button stopped working half the time, and thumbnails disappeared. I am thinking my security software started blocking an app (e.g., Java) or something. Anybody know what I should look for?

I figured it out. All of a sudden AdBlock started interfering with more than just ads on this forum.

I had problems with the ads, they were causing url redirects, interfering with page scrolling and pages were slow to load.
Was using Win 10, Chrome
Now using Win 10, Firefox, and privacy badger from EFF.

No more issues.

Good to know. It's been working fine with FireFox on my Win7 machine for years. It just now went all wonky on this forum. I have turned it off just for the forum now. I've got a brand new Win10 machine sitting right here waiting for me to switch everything over. But I'd still rather be working on the van...

Same issues here. In addition the search box (top right) has disappeared. Using Safari with adblocker.

Hey there

We are receiving reports of this from a few different adblock/noscript programs.

For those experiencing the above function issues, try disabling your adblock and see if that resolves the issues you are coming across. If it does, you don't need to leave it disabled entirely, you can try going in to your settings on your program of choice and whitelist, or allow, the Verticalscope scripts to run. Depending on your program, you may be able to select it from a list of currently blocked scripts, or you may need to add it manually to a whitelist. To add it manually, please use the following: comet-admin.verticalscope.com and static.verticalscope.com

Check that you don't have additional programs installed (they can be individual programs, browser extensions, or add-ons from your antivirus).

If you are still having trouble, please let us know what issues exactly you are seeing, your browser and device/OS, and screenshots.

Thanks everyone,
Dayle

If you are only seeing a search icon instead of a search box, clicking the icon should open a search box.

Thanks! Those two manual exceptions are better (more selective) than unblocking the forum itself. Much appreciated.
