Is there a new layout, or is it just my phone?

Why only the two options, ruling out self-medication?   :whistle:

ps - site looks fine from here.    :cheers:

That must be quite a shock to the poor, battered organ.

Ditto for me at 1635 Hrs EST.
It is ill that men should kill one another in seditions, tumults and wars; but it is worse to bring nations to such misery, weakness and baseness
as to have neither strength nor courage to contend for anything; to have nothing left worth defending and to give the name of peace to desolation.

Some weird stuff happening with the server, Army.ca seems to suffer outages while the other sites (Navy.ca, Air-Force.ca, Milnet.ca) are OK. And odder still is that either the HTTP or HTTPS version goes out but the other is unaffected; then it flips.

I have been working on this issue as much as possible, but a solution has eluded me so far. Probably unrelated that IPs from Russia have been hammering the site all week...

OK, it all seems to be fine now (2040 Hrs EST) including the https://army.ca/for ... and so on.  :nod:

Mike: thanks for all you do for us ... and thanks to your family, too, and know that we all wish you and yours a very Merry Christmas.  :christmas happy:

Thanks Edward, I have to admit it's been a challenge to devote the time needed without putting work/family on the back burner. Here's hoping for a slow down in the tempo soon! ;)

Layout has improved somewhat (maybe it's data vs. Wifi?). Some emoticons and stuff showing as broken links...

When drafting a post, no smileys or BBC shortcut icons appear.  Attached image is all I get.

I think the missing smileys/BBC happens when accessing the site from some secure networks. Used to happen from the DWAN but I took some steps to resolve it years ago. Might be back again.

Seems all the different fonts, font sizes, font colours, etc. have disappeared from the site (army.ca).....along with all the smileys.

Modified this post while on milnet.ca and the same 'problem' exists there as well......No selection of fonts, font sizes, font colours, etc.....Nor the Smiley options.

Unless so stated, they are reflective of my opinion -- and my opinion only, a right that I enjoy along with every other Canadian citizen.
