    Uh Oh ... ubuntuforums reverted to sandbox

    I just noticed that when I refreshed a tab of ubuntuforums on FF it rolled back to the November, 2012 sandbox screen that we were beta testing. I switched tabs a, refreshed and it works now.

    Here is screenshot of offender.

    It didn't roll back, it simply rearranged the threads in OP name order. The URL your screenshot is showing is:

    (Top one is to show full URL - second is a hyperlink which the forum software condenses in the post.)

    If you click on the link, you will get nearly the same - not quite because the x hours ago at the top will be different or if there have been any new posts to any of those threads.

    I don't know how you did that. You can get the same display if you choose the appropriate thread display options at the bottom of the page and click on the "show threads" button. This is what I get:

    URL is different, but the effect is the same as far as I can make out.

    Are you sure you only refreshed the tab? Something must have happened for the forum software to have added "&sort=postusername&order=asc" to the vanilla URL for the Raring forum, which is:
    Ubuntu 16.04 Desktop Guide - Ubuntu 17.10 Desktop Guide - Forum Guide to BBCode - Using BBCode code tags - IRC #ubuntuforums
