The "View New Posts" button is back up and running but the results are displayed very oddly.. as someone above has mentioned, it is like an Excel Spreadsheet where someone has made the first column too narrow.

So it is hard to read the post title, and theres a massive white empty section in the middle.

I think it must be a glitch/problem, not the new theme - as no one would design this on purpose, I think/hope.

I see this display formatting issue when I click on the 'Today's Posts' link when not logged in.

When I click on 'View New Posts' while logged in, the search results page displays as it usually does with no formatting issues.

Just tried it again and I still get the same display formatting issue when clicking "View New Posts", I am logged in.

Weird!

As this has been fixed I'll close this, if it happens again, please post a new thread

A persons worth is not decided by the colour of their skin, religion, sexual orientation, gender or ability.
It is decided by their words, deeds and how they treat their fellow human beings.
There are other forums if this gives you a problem.
