The Locked Icon keeps showing up on over half of the threads posted
on the Freebie Forum. It doesn't seem to have anything to do with date
or topic or who posted it. They just appear.

Unlike a normal lock, people can still post on the threads. The only
problem is when general traffic is surfing through, it gives the message
that an offer is over when it is not.

I've not seen this in any of the other forums.

Thanks to whoever has an answer or solution.

I see no locked threads on the front page of that forum. Not even one.

Can you post a screen shot?

Thanks for checking it Bo.

I'm not good with screenshots, but my screen looks something like this. All the way down on the left hand sign
I have locked icons for each thread. NOW I'm seeing it in Other Topics.
I guess if it's just MY computer, then it's no big deal. I though everyone else could see it also.

I know Beretta. You do such a great job on that forum, until I knew if there was THAT big of a problem....you would've messaged me and told me to straighten up.

My menopausal brain has cooked up under my bleached blond hair for so long until I'm afraid I have nothing left to say for myself. Yes, we will blame it on some sort of medication and CD senility.

---------------------
Truthfully, I AM seeing the icons as shown on the screen saver. BUT, as long as it is only me seeing them, I can live with it.

Thanks to everyone who checked it.

I think what GloryB is talking about is the fact REGULAR MEMBERS can see the quick reply box EVEN ON A THREAD THATS LOCKED (I told Marka about this months ago)

The reg members CAN SEE QUICK REPLY on locked threads BUT THEY CANT REPLY TO THEM!! (Only staff can)

Its an error in the programming.. Quick reply SHOULDNT BE SEEN BY ANYONE BUT THE STAFF GROUPS IF THREADS ARE LOCKED..

That's how the vBulletin is set and we would have to write our own program to change it but that's not what the OP is talking about.

Glory, I've no idea why you would see the wrong icons but perhaps clearing your cache would help? Apparently, they were loaded incorrectly so now you should try to reload them. If the refresh button doesn't do the trick, try in your browser options.
