    Default Glitches, Bugs and Broken Stuff

    Hi folks,

    Unless you are either brand-new to our site, or are still stumbling through the half-sleep of fishing season in Alaska, you've probably noticed a few cosmetic changes around the site. Frankly, this is the biggest upgrade we've ever done in our 18 years online. We've been working on it since last fall, steadily, with the exception of a five-week trip I took to Asia, to help out some folks over there. At any rate, we wanted to create a thread where you can report anything that's broken, so we can fix it. It's like we just built a brand-new house; there's an outlet that needs a cover, a burned-out bulb over there, some trim that needs a paint touch-up and so on. Please explore the site and let us know what you're finding, okay? We'd like to fix it for you as soon as we can!

    Just post them right in this thread, okay?

    And for the record, we're talking not only about the forums, but especially about the main site. Where can you find the main site? Glad you asked! The links to the main section are at the top of this page, right under the new name of the site, "Alaska Outdoors Supersite".

    Thanks in advance for your help!

    -Admin

    I know this is extremely minor but I figured I would mention it. I use Chrome as a browser and I am still seeing the old, green Alaska icon as the little icon on this tab.

    Well spotted. I've fixed it. You may need to delete your browser cache to see the changes though. IE in particular really likes to keep ahold of the icons!

    This is apparently a 'feature' of the software. They may change this in future versions.

    It also appears to be the same issue with Tapatalk.

    My problem. I sign in and then I find out after typing along reply or trying to see a picture I am kicked out of the forum and everything I typed is now gone. Just happened again, it has been doing this to me since the changes have been made. I finally have gotten tired of it and now I am complaining. Help.

    Same problem here and it has been happening for a long, long time.
    Someday someone may kill you with your own gun, but they should have to beat you to death with it because it is empty.

    Did some checking on this and the consensus is that it's a browser issue on your end. Try clearing your browser cache and let me know how it goes.
