I had the same last night (using a Chromebook that's on v70.something.)

Try in incognito mode / private browsing / whatever your browser may call it and see if the site looks normal. Incognito mode worked fine for me, so I assume there was something cached from the old site version that was causing problems.

I tried to get by with just clearing the cache, which made the page readable but the drop-downs were permanently extended and a lot of the buttons were missing on the interface for creating posts. Ultimately I had to delete cache and cookies/site data to get things to render properly.

Only other issue I've found so far is that the buttons for edit/quote/report/reply do not have any icons. The mouseover works for them at least.

I tried to attach a 12kb screenshot of the area but got a "could not upload attachment to" message.

thanks for the tip, but considering this is the only site I'm having issues viewing, I'll just wait for them to fix it on their end.

When I was working on getting the upgrade done, I observed each of the three things mentioned above
You mean anything like this?
yep!
the drop-downs were permanently extended
yep!
buttons for edit/quote/report/reply do not have any icons
yep!

However, by time I posted the OP, all three of them looked to be resolved. So it should be good to go, perhaps requiring a restart of browser or clearing of the cache. If you're still observing issues then please post here, but I'm seeing the three things described above as fixed (and I agree, all three of those problems were there at one point Tuesday afternoon).

I saw that some of the icons weren't working on the view-topic page; that should be resolved now as well.

Ok, finally decided to clear the cache. Seems to be ok now. Was definitely something I've never seen before. :mrgreen:

This new software doesn't work as well on my iPad with Safari. I have drop down menus not going away for example.

Also, it seems I can no longer attach photos to posts.

I had the same problem with chrome on android until I cleared my cache. Tried to clear the cache for just genvibe, but that didn't fix it. clearing my entire cache did though, so maybe try that

Mike says he'll look into that this weekend
