Dear Sir: You have in your forum tools, the message preview function. For many years that function worked well. At present the preview does not work. I am on a very slow dialup connection and the preview helps to eliminate 15 minutes of waiting daily. I would appreciate the return of the message preview.

@MrYikes, If you change the color theme (bottom of the page) to "wintery-blue" , you'll get a color scheme similar to the regular one, but the tooltips will have text in them. (Ferenc gets the credit for discovering that one)

The break is deeper than just tooltips, though. You can't look at people's profiles anymore, at least not from a regular message.

Might want to consider rolling back the last change to the site infrastructure.

Actually it was a team effort 🙂 I only discovered that the text color is probably the same as the background, but didn't bother to try if the other color themes have it the same way.. 

So then Mandy was the one who told me on chat that other themes have it, then I merely searched for one that was similar to the original, since I got so used to it :)))

Thank you both. This was a big deal for me, so it is a heart felt thank you.

I'm sorry it took me so long to figure it out but I specified the preview background color to black and since then all has been good. I hope this works for all of you now.

I've found another problem that I thought was related to the original one, but apparently not.

The "profile" links don't work for me anymore. I click on the picture and nothing happens. (I've tried going to the "Profile" text in the bubble, but it disappears before I can click it.)

No idea whether this is happening to anyone else, but I discovered it a few weeks ago.

The profile link appears to work for me, at least if I remember to log in 😉 But since you posted under your account, you were obviously logged in. Maybe a browser issue, I've had issues with Chrome refusing to cooperate occasionally 🙂
