Strange AN shyness

Recommended Posts

I use my playbook for most of my net trawling its cheaper than running the pc with its fans and greedy cpus but i have found a strange reluctance of AN to show itself on my bookmarks screen.

When you bookmark a site it puts a little box with a picture of the page you last used on the site as the bookmark dooda ,at the moment i have 27 permanent little boxes but all show up as images except poor AN which remains a plain grey box with an arrow on it ,is AN shy?

Just had a thought and went to the main AN page and bookmarked that and thats fine but thats a click away from the forum so i bookmark direct to the forum but that remains shy,why?

The rest are links within websites as well but bookmark fine

hard to say without knowing how your browser takes a snapshot for a bookmark.

 

im gonna have a stab in the dark and say something relating to cache or the page hasnt fully loaded while you bookmarked it.

That occasionally happens when i get rid of the stored data and come out before its fully loaded but AN refuses to under any circumstance ,perhaps the main page and forum main page are different

Possibly.

 

forum may have restricted bots (only google, yahoo, msn allowed etc) where as the main page doesnt or there could be something in the coding that screenshot function cant render.

 

I dont see how bots can affect browser taking a screenshot though and I dont know if screenshot feature uses code, or whats actually showing at the time.

 

all guess work though. I still think likely cause is cache. try remove bookmarks, clear cache/temp and try again ?

 

another thought, are you seeing mobile version of site ? my firefox shows the correct image for bookmarks for full version.

That rules that out. Must be browser not being able to render code for the purpose of a screenshot with the mobile version (best wild guess) strange.
