"hmm.......... can some one please explain the connection of this forum with "vbulletin"?

It appears that when I now access the forum - I get a version from "vbulletin" which is different to the past, familiar look-and-feel of the site (I prefer the old livery - but that's a personal thing).

I've found a way to still use the old form of forum by loading 162.84.227, but I'm curious (as an intellectual question) to understand why.

vBulletin is the forum software.

I think the appearance difference happens when some cookies get messed up and the software doesn't serve a skin?

At the bottom left of the main forum page, there should be a skin selection drop-box:



Try resetting it to '--RT' as shown there.

I get that too Don,

It seems to be when I do a Google search for an auto-scan it happens it switch's to the mobile use for dumb phones version.

I just scroll to the bottom of the page and click "FULL SITE" just like I do on my phone......... so I can navigate easier too what I am used to.

^^^^Thanks lads!!!!

I forgot to mention that I'm using Mozilla - perhaps that's the problem. But your suggestions fixed the problem
