Nope, and as of today it is back again. I'm a bit lost as to how it could be intermittent. Everything was fine for a few days, and today, I can barely make out any of the buttons because of the avatar images.

Kind of figured this out, well a work around anyway. I think it is a bug in the forum code and not really a B&C issue. If you load the forum from a post the bug doesn't happen, even if you navigate to the front page. If you load the frontpage it happens every time, unless you click a link before the pages finishes loading. I noticed when I was using my iPad via cellular data instead of wifi, (a little slower) the page loaded completely and correctly before adding the faulty images in at the last tick of the loading bar. It could be a skin issue, or it's just a issue in the code itself, and how it interacts with the iPad version of Safari.

Even if I let the images load, if I clear my cache by closing the app, then restarting and immediately clicking any link on the page, the images don't load again and I can use the forum until my cache clears. (IPad off too long, or using another app too long.)

So long as I load any page other than the front page fully, first - the forum works correctly, every time.

It is probably an iPad/Safari issue, perhaps due to some particular code present on the homepage but it's hard to look into due to the irregularity of it. Could you try the B&C using another skin for a while to see if it happens again?

 

I'm not expecting there to be anything we can do, but there might be a quick fix if we can find the cause (and are lucky!).

I can't seem to find the skins anymore. They used to be at the bottom. I'm not sure if it has moved, or is just different on my tablet. I'll gladly give it a shot if you'd kindly help me find them.

Can you see the "Change Theme" link in the bottom left, if so what options does it provide?

It only allows me to turn off the B&C skin completely, and also to switch to mobile. It doesn't let me switch back to the B&C default without a work around by going to mobile then going back to full site.

When skins aren't loaded, it doesn't have any issues. So we can confirm it is a skin - safari(iPad) interaction issue.

The workaround of loading a thread first is working fairly well so far. I do prefer the default B&C skin greatly to the IPboard default. There used to be several skin options, I don't know what happened to them, but it has been quite a while since I've used one.

I guess we still don't know if it is isolated to this particular skin, or if it happens when any skin other than the IPboard default blue and grey.

The change from 2x to 3x of the software made doing skins a much harder process.

Ah, that makes sense. I was sure there used to be quite a few more a few years ago. 

I'm going to keep using the work-around for now, I don't use my ipad to view the site very often anymore, so it isn't particularly inconvenient for me. I am curious if the next software update, either ipboard or safari changes anything though.
