    Microsoft Forums Not Displaying Correctly


    Starting last night, the MS 'Community' forums (answers.microsfot.com) started displaying oddly. A number of elements seemed misplaced. A prime example is attempting to reply to a thread. The reply window now looks like this:

    I'm seeing this in both Chrome and Edge. Do they share cached elements that might affect display? Other sites are behaving normally. Before I wiped out cache, cookies, etc. I thought I see if others are seeing the same thing.

    Thanks,
    Keith

  2. Email not displaying correctly

    We suggest that you use the Windows Device Recovery Tool. It'll install the latest version of Windows approved for your phone. This will remove everything including your apps, games, texts, call history, music, and photos. Please
    back up your stuff to avoid data loss.

    For more details check Windows Device Recovery Tool Faq.

    Let us know if it helps.

  5. Could it be that in you post you quote answers.microsfot.com whereas it should be answers.microsoft.com

  6. I do not believe he would even get to the site using that. I think it was a typo.*Wink

    I apologize for the typo in the title. I'm visually impaired and sometimes miss those things, but . I'm not a one-time user of the forums, I'm a frequent contributor:

    https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/...6-6012273f59fa

    Not only have I refreshed the page, I've restarted. And again, I'm seeing this in both Edge and Chrome ---- do they share the same cache of style sheets or whatever might be affecting layout (HTML is not my strength).

    Try IE and see if it works.

    Thank you,, Edwin!
    I thought MS might be playing with the site. I've been seeing a notice about feedback changing at the bottom of pages such as this:
    https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/pow...w=powershell-6
    So I guess MS is "improving" the user experience once again
    *Eek

    Guess I'll just wait it out and play with PowerShell for the day!
