    My emoticons window doesn't fully fit on the page. Even if I drag the pop up box I still can't display the bottom rows. The 'Shameless Plug' icon is the lowest one I can see.
    I'm using firefox.

    I've got a 19" monitor and the resolution is set at the optimum level. I don't have problems with any other websites so doubt it is the cause.
    I'll see what it displays like at home though.

    The software is running very slow, almost stops sometimes and changing pages is slow to do. I have logged on to other sites and hsve no problems with them loading.

    I had the same in work (non restricted internet line) but I just moved it and it seemed fine.
    both 19" monitors set to 1280x1024.
    That smily thing might cause issues for smaller screens cause you can't shrink it very much.
    Any one tested it out on a phone or tablet?

    I get the same on some posts. Slow to load up or just sits there loading and wont jump to the last post in that thread.

    Apart from that its fine. I do like the past as plain text button.

    The smileys aren't working on my phone, a dialogue box appears at the top of the screen with jibba jabba. Something along the lines of... Insert a smiley ... id='cke etc..,

    Yeah I see now the smileys window doesnt move up, they should make it wider instead of narrower.

    The notifications on my phone is also playing up. It goes to subscribed threads. Strange one.
