Today I am getting odd formatting of Geekzone. The banner is displaying as light gray and extends down behind the body of the web page, this is especially evident on the left side. The right side is also inconsistent and "jaggered. In forum list I am getting usernames appearing the post body of the post above.

 

I am using Edge version 42.17134.1.0.

 

I have done all the usuals like clear cache history forms etc etc. The web page displays correctly in MacOS using Chrome and in Windows 10 using Chrome.

Looks like edge dosn't like the body background-image.

 

So is falling back to background-color: #cecece;

Actually the image is there. It is just half way down the page.

 

Remove body css style background-position-y: center fixes it in Edge. Haven't checked other browsers.

I had the same problem this afternoon, on all forums, using Firefox (latest).

 

Format was OK on Chrome (which I rarely use).

 

Self-corrected after about an hour.

 

Never before or since.

 

 

 

EDIT  I spoke too soon - problem is back on Firefox.

 

Here is a screenshot:

In the sites css the body tag style has background-position:top;
Changing this to background-position: center top; ie (give values to both x and y positions)
Should stop browsers defaulting the background-position-y to center;

 

Edit: May need to add background-position: center top; to the .forumBox style to fix problem @Sideface is seeing.

That's ... weird - this occurs when I connect via a vpn.  Toggling the VPN on/off then forcing a refresh makes the issue appear/clear respectively in Chrome

Hmm, well now I can't clear that ... is it related to the IPv6 logo?
