EduGeek through proxy
I have real problems accessing EduGeek through any kind of proxy. Whenever I do, I get bits of content missing (mainly images). Worse, the forums page appears without any forums listed - so I can't start any new threads.
It's been like this for months now, hence me not posting much recently. The only place I can get EduGeek properly is at home through domestic BT broadband.
I've tried several places:-
* My main school (North Yorks proxy + Smoothwall)
* Another school (North Yorks Proxy only)
* Local charity I work for (Smoothwall only)
It's the same through them all. I've tried different browsers and refreshing them - makes no difference.
I'm posting this from home, just so I can start the thread. If there's no suggestions by tomorrow, I'll add some screen shots from the school.

Hmm do you have access to your smoothwall configs?
Anything in the realtime view about bits being blocked?
I have had no issues through our smoothwall so far.

Thanks ZH, but I don't think it's specifically Smoothwall causing the problem. One of the sites with the problem just has the LA's firewall & proxy, and no Smoothwall.
Smoothwall in the school has a policy set to allow everything for my account. The realtime logs confirm that nothing from edugeek (or any other domain) is getting blocked for me.
Is it just me? Has anyone else had this? When it appeared a few months ago, I thought it would just clear up eventually, but it never did.

The weird thing is that the front page works OK. Smoothwall realtime log attached.

Not sure if North Yorks is on YHGfL or not - in any case the symptoms don't look like it's a grid issue. If the grid was blocking the display would be different, you'd get a page from them with info. Plus YHGfL have as far as I know given Edugeek the all clear.
From the screen shots it appears to be just the top bar that's not being displayed properly (place holders for all the graphics). Does the menu line, just under where the tabs should be) work?

Weird I get this for our VLE I think its to do with network traffic issues on our end though, doing a tracert atm to see where our slowdown is. I have no problems with Edugeek thoguh

Stale CSS? Have you tried the olde ctrl-refresh? Maybe something upstream is holding a knackered copy?

tom is closest. I think your using a old theme. The main menubar is made up of individual images now not one (for ages now).
Can you tell me what theme you have and I will fix/disable the theme?
