Can't post/Missing buttons/No access allowed on pages

Post by ApplePie »

If you're visiting the site and there are buttons missing such as to register/login or you're logged in and things like the reply button are missing and it's telling you that you can't view profiles then you may be experiencing an interesting little bug I came across.

Basically what's happened is your adblocker has blocked a little window that asks if you accept the site using cookies. But the site is so literal in its interpretation of the law that it won't use cookies until you accept that. And without the cookies a lot of the pages don't work and strangely some of the buttons like the reply button are hidden. So the site will seem like it's working but really everything is broken because you never clicked the button because it was hidden. The weirdest part is that it actually lets you sign up and login without cookies though, even though that obviously requires cookies to function.

The fix is to disable adblocking on the site and then click the button that appears to accept cookies and then it will all work.
