Forum appearance goes sideways!

I wonder why the forum page appearance seems to go sideways quite often when I click on any of the links to open a page, or to change pages within a thread (if more than one).

The top part of the page is fine down to the blue breadcrumbs. Then there are about 25 cm of space (much bigger than the space that is present when the Recently Viewed to the top right is full) before the OP and replies are evident.

Just started yesterday. Strange glitch.

Hi MuftiMixandmatch,

I cannot replicate this glitch in the formatting, but I have forwarded your report to the administrators for their investigation.

Kind regards,

This happened again today. Once this morning and once 5 minutes ago. So I went back to my emails inbox, clicked on the notification again. It worked and the page stayed in place.

Back again with further repetitions in the forums.

This 20-25 cm huge gap of white space has occurred about 4-5 times today, the same yesterday and maybe a couple of times 2 days ago.

The page opens up properly, then immediately hiccups to the white gap which requires scrolling down a looooong way to see the OP.

I have noticed this as well on .co.uk in the last couple of days

If I'm understanding what you're saying, mine is like that most of the time. There is information on the right (recently viewed & more about HUMTAB). I'm in the extended view. I've always thought that it might be a removed ad or that it's just space to allow room for the information on the right but I have no idea. This is between the blue link (breadcrumbs) and the list of replies.

L4, delete all the "recently viewed" that might be listed to the top right. The white gap should shrink.

However, a gap of 25 cm is not normal. It must be a glitch. With no recently viewed showing, the white gap should be about 3 cm.

The hiccups are still active along with the big gaps. Seems to be just on this forum actually.
