When logged in the formatting gets messed up. Help?

Not sure this is the right forum for this but navigating is difficult when it is rendered like this. Everything appears normal until I log in, then everything loses color and the formatting is screwy. Any way to fix this, maybe though options or something? I can probably provide a screenshot if necessary.

Thanks.

I have very occasionally experienced weird formatting here at VGF when my internet was screwy, but nothing like what you mention.

Good to see you, homey.

Sounds like a CSS file isn't loading. You've been gone for a while, so it's possible your browser has an older file with the same name cached that it's loading instead of the new one. Try clearing that if you haven't already.

Yeah, I think I know what you're talking about, when it doesn't load correctly, but this was kinda different.

Thanks, nice to see you too, Boo.

I didn't really know how to mess with that kind of stuff but I changed the board view from "softblue" to "prosilver" and it looks fine now. Thanks though.

Ctrl+shift+r resets the cache on most major browsers. If changing the theme fixed it for you, it's very likely a CSS problem.

I didn't even look at the softblue style on the server move, as only 1 person is currently using it. Not sure there's a point to it now that the actual style is blue, but there probably something that was missed.
