    Default Why doesn't the "Display Modes" button work for me???

    As questioned, when I go to access the "Display Modes" tab (upper right side when viewing any thread) to switch to Linear View or whatever its called, the tab does nothing. No dropdown, no options, no action, no worky.

    Anyone else have this problem? I'm ready to ban everyone until its fixed.

    BAN EvERyone!!!

    I dont get a response from any of the 4 tabs. I noted your mileage and think you should ban yourself or take up walking

    Strange those buttons, just strange. They're simply ornaments. It would be fine if it defaulted to the cool layout, but it doesn't always.

    On the mileage front, I wish I drove it more so I can see the 1,000,000 mark before my son can drive (he's one).

    Same with me, I noticed it about a week ago. Search doesn't work either. Makes it kind of difficult. Is this forum dying? Ed, say it ain't so!!

    Gosh, I can't even click on a poster's name to either send a message or see the profile. The search option is also off... It's like java (or whatever the hell programming tool is used) does not work anymore.

    If you click on said things and open them in a new window or new tab it'll all work. But just regular clicking on all of this stuff doesn't.

    Why that is I've no clue as I'm no programmer.

    Yeah, same as the search buttons and user profiles, etc. No worky when directly clicking on it. Worky just fine when you click the link to open a new window/tab in your browser.

    Doesn't fix it. But at least it's a work around...
