A neon vest like utility workers wear. Put one on and you're invisible to passersby. Even if you're digging around in the shrubs around the entrance sign to the park looking for a letterbox, no one stops to wonder what you might be doing. (Unless, of course, the park maintenance folks happen by. 😮)

And take a clipboard. No one will bother you if you have a vest and a clipboard!

I expect irritation could be a result of my vague clues but the comment "Don't attempt this letterbox! It is just a way to get money for the parking garage!" was surprising.

Is anyone else having to scroll down past a vertical listing of "Home", "Toolbox", "Boards", etc, which were previously horizontal at the top of the page? This appeared this morning and I need to scroll down past these to reach the daily stuff (such as to post this). It shows up vertically again at the bottom, when it used to be horizontal.
Not a huge deal, but it takes quite a bit of scrolling to get to the good stuff!
Ryan, perhaps you can answer this?
Thanks, sojourner

I had the same this morning, but refreshed several times and it returned to the typical view.

My view was way more messed up than that, using Chrome on a PC. I had to delete my browser cache and then it went back to normal.

Same here. The "My Page" on the top bar is on the next line down even after refreshing several times.

Also, could someone remind me how to re-organize widgets listed on "My Page"? I believe at one point they were movable. Thanks.

Just hover on the widget title. The four-arrow cursor symbol will appear, and you'll be able to move the widget wherever you like.

It works the same way whether you use a desktop or an iPad. Drag the header of the widget to where you want it to go.

If you use a Windows machine, press Ctrl+F5 to refresh your cache.

If you're using a mobile device, try using the "incognito" window which seems to bypass the cached pages. (At least it does on my Android device.)

If you're using something else.... I have no idea to how refresh the cache on your browser but if all else fails, being patient will fix things. Your browser is just using an old CSS page that is no longer relevant and it'll start working correctly as soon as it picks up the new version which happens when it happens....

For iPad and iPhone, go to settings, safari, and clear history. You'll need to sign again, but then all will be right with the world. 😊

Apple Laptop, Chrome.

I clicked on Chrome (upper left)-> Clear Browsing Data, checked 3 boxes (browsing history, cookies..., caches images....). Clicked on the "Clear data" button, and now it looks normal for me.

Good luck!

Not for me. I can only rearrange them on my desktop.

Site totally screwed up in Chrome. I fail to see why this should be happening now when it was fine before.

I cleared the history and it is ok for the moment. Why should we have to be doing these things just to view the site properly?
