    If it's the full theme, I'd recommend clearing your browser cache. There are bound to be some leftover caching goodies from the old templates that could screw up the new site.
    Is clearing you browser cache the new "try blowing the cartridge?"

    No, it's a common practice to clear out old data that may be mucking up the system, particularly when much of the code used for this site is exactly the same as the old site. You spent months accumulating data using the old site and some browsers aren't very good at wiping out that old data and replacing it with the new.

    And vBulletin relies heavily on caching and cookies. It causes some headaches from a development standpoint, particularly because I have no control over user caching. It's handled client side and thanks to some vB options, I can't wipe out some old data that really screws with how the site is displayed (the most annoying of which is the minimized sidebar in the forums, which is most likely Pseudo's problem based on his description).

    It's a common cause of trouble and is generally the first thing one does to troubleshoot a problem, much the same way "reboot your computer" is the first thing a tech person says when software malfunctions. Eliminate the easy causes before delving into the harder stuff.

    Is the direct tv ad on the side of the page intended to hang down over the first few forum threads? I am on an i-pad, and I can't see the first few posts. These 'interruption style ads' do not entice me to click at all.

    This particular problem is not intentionally made to render that way. I changed some code in the ad tags so hopefully, that will stop the large ads from overhanging content.

    Also, could you tell me what browser you're using and immediately to the right of the forums, are you seeing a large white space (about 320 pixels wide)?
