What happened to the look?

Yesterday I logged in to a new - and frankly boring - look to Bike Forums. Is there any way to go back to the classic view? My subscription is up-to-date, and I'm not seeing ads, so this appears to be something that was planned? I waited a day to see if anyone else complained, but so far I haven't seen anything.

I like the old. If you can help me get it back, I'd be grateful

Scroll to the very bottom and to the right there are different layouts to choose from. This one is Bikeforums NG.

Thank you Siu - I will check that out and report back.

...and it's working now. I was on the laptop, so the option ended up being Full Size or something like that, accessed from a menu that was in the upper left. For posterity, in case this ever happens to me again

...but now I am having problems with attaching pics. Normally the dialogue box for posts has all the little icons to click on so I can load up photos. As of yesterday, it's just a box. If I Go Advanced, I still don't get the icons - the only way I can add pics is to go to Manage Attachments and do it the long way.

Any ideas? My subscription is still current, so I don't know why this changed on me. I'm trying to link pics from my Flickr account.

When you click the photos icon a window opens and you can upload from a URL or your device. You can add images using the menu at the top of the window before inserting them or do it sequentially to position them where you need them.

I do know all this - I have posted pics many, many times before. My problem is that none of the icons show up - just a dialogue box I can type in and nothing more. No menu whatsoever at the top of the window.

Should be right above the text box. What style are you using, the old one or the new BikeforumsNG? Everything is updated on NG.

I went back to the old look which I was used to and preferred. The way it appears for me now is that at the bottom of the first 25 posts on Page 1 of any thread is a dialogue box that only allows characters. There are no icons across the top for adding pics or links or what have you - like there used to be. Even when I click the button below the dialogue box marked "Go Advanced", the icons do not appear in the follow-on screen. The only way to add pics - without the option for adding text in between - is to use the Manage Attachments box and going the long way. With the above mentioned drawback.

It was okay up until about 3/4 days ago. I dunno what's changed or why. I've logged out and back in and the problem persists.

I'm using BikeforumsNG according to the first snip. The second one is how the bottom of a page looks to me when it comes response options. In order to post these two attachments I had to Go Advanced, then access Manage Attachments and attach the images directly from my computer. Normally the icon for a pic would allow me to access my online storage. I have no way to add a link. Well, I don't know another way, that is But the loss of functionality is a bit frustrating.

Should look like this. Do you have the square icon to the left of the smiley?

To the left of the smiley, the square icon is what you use to upload a pic.

Here's what it looks like at the bottom of the screen. Completely different from what your screenshot looks like. And again, up until a few days ago, mine looked very much like yours (I don't recall seeing the large green bar for the mobile site, however) and all the icons were there. But now? Nothing.

Possible you're running an ad blocker? If so... turn it off.

I've only once in the past couple days seen a pop-up blocker alert - and I set it to allow pop-ups from Bike Forums. I'm a paying member, so I never see ads anyway.

Nobody else has ever seen this issue? This functionality loss is really going to cramp my style.

  • Try a different browser; if it looks right there, you'll know it's a browser glitch
  • If it looks the same, try going into UserCP, Edit options, Miscellaneous options, Message Editor Interface, and choose Enhanced Interface -- Full CKEditor.

Many, many thanks! This worked, no problem. For whatever reason, before I changed it it was set to Basic Editor/Simple Text Box. I don't know how it defaulted to that (I've always had full-interface before), but your suggestion fixed it
