I get two different views, when not logged in and when logged in.

1- When not logged in all is normal

2- This is what I get when I log in. Noticed the extra phpBB logo. That is not there when I am logged out.

Have you changed your default style away from TPF Red?

This is what I see.
I can only assume that this is the way that Google Chrome renders the banner at the top of the page. JDAW - any ideas?

Andy - you are using the default phpBB style, which we have not edited so that is how it is designed to look.

Very possible, because in Mozilla firefox I see the same as your screenshot, DRT.

I use Chrome and I see the same as DRT.

Old Bridge - in Chrome try clearing your cache and then restarting Chrome.

I think Mike's suggestion about clearing the cache in your browser is a good place to start.

Done that, no change, except I had to try to remember all my old passwords.

Do you have any other browsers on your machine? If so could you please take a look at TPF in the other browser and let us know what you see?

88) I have solved the conundrum.
I use a laptop and keep it ca. 4 feet away from my face. To read comfortably I zoom in to 175%. At 150% and lower zoom, I can see what everybody can see, but at 175% and above, the screen shows what is in my screenshot.
So because I like the comfort of my reclining chair and am too lazy to keep the laptop on my lap, my screen looks different.
Elementary, my dear.......... 88)

The software is device responsive and therefore looks slightly different depending on how you are using it. I noticed yesterday that when I view it in landscape mode on my iPhone it looks very similar to the view you posted from Chrome.

That's one problem solved. The triple icons still seem to be a mystery.
