This is what I see when I visit the main site http://everquest.allakhazam.com/ with Opera. It might be an addon. Just a FYI. I don't know how much anyone cares about fringe browsers. I usually use Firefox with no issues.

Internal pages don't have this issue it seems.

This is what I see:

I see what the issue is. I'll take a look at it later today.

Is there not a scroll bar attached to that menu on the front page for you Taniger? I'm using Opera and I can see a scroll bar there that allows me to scroll down. It may take a second or two to load up the rest of the menu the first time you load the front page due to the new ZAM articles thing ZAM put in.

There is a vert scroll bar on the browser, not on the menu. Maybe a screen shot would be better. If you're not seeing the menu expanding vertically I'll disable addons and test again tomorrow morning. The page loads correctly for a second then the whole thing blows up.

Just a quick update... There seems to be some impact from an Opera extension called uBlock Origin but disabling that doesn't restore the page to the correct view. Oddly the page begins displaying correctly and if I stop the page load as soon as it displays, but before it finishes, it will retain proper formatting. If I allow the page to fully load it blows up. Since it is only the main page and not other pages, I will just reset my bookmark to a different page. I don't have a site to host an image at this time. And since it is just one page and one browser, I don't have more time to devote to troubleshooting.

It's probably me and not the page, my browser configurations are always pretty locked down.

I activated my ad blocker for opera and I see what you are saying. The reason why this is happening is because ZAM installed a ad system that goes around your ad blockers for browsers that use the google chrome engine. Opera uses the google chrome engine. However it shouldn't be distorting the site like that if you do turn the ad blocker on. I'll let ZAM know about it.

My advice is to use another browser or pay for a $1 a month premium membership so you don't experience this problem.

I am premium, and logged in, so the ads shouldn't even be displaying. And I do usually use Firefox, where I have no issues. I don't want to waste your time because I know you have a ton of more important things to do. If you aren't seeing that kind of page corruption with a base Opera install, then like I said it probably is me and not you. I'll update this thread if I discover any new info.

If you are logged in as a premium member and still seeing ads, you probably haven't logged out and back in to activate your premium subscription. Ya I know it should tell you to do that, it's on the TODO list!

No, a misunderstanding. I run uBlock by default, but am logged in to ZAM. No ads here. Also the main site page is now working on Opera. Did you change something or did I?
