Home Page and Scrolldown Menus Problem


Love the design of the new Home Page. However, depending where the white banner ad is placed on the current photograph BP is posting, I can't access the pulldown menus (notably Community) because the menus roll down behind the white rectangular ad. About 8/10 of the different Home Page images give this result, so access to the Forum is only by bypassing the main page, surely not BP's intent.

Am I alone? Hallucinating (though only on this site)? I'd sure appreciate it if anyone else with the same difficulty would chime in ... My browser is Firefox, and I'm using Windows XP.

  Now I'm hallucinating the problem's fixed. Thanks, I think!

  You're not hallucinating, it happened to me too. Browser IE, Windows XP. Haven't noticed it for awhile though.

  It was happening to me too, on Mac OS X, browser Safari. I also frequently experience freeze ups on this site. I can be cruising along reading the forum and/or viewing contest entries, and boom...nothing. It will eventually time out and give me the "page cannot be displayed" message. When that happens I give up and come back later, at which time all will be well again. Am I the only one experiencing this problem? It happens a LOT.

  You're not the only one with freeze ups either - that also happens to me.

  I've been worried about the site slowing down now that they're offering the cash contest, and probably will be getting a lot more traffic. I've experienced a lot more freeze-ups lately, then the "page cannot be displayed message."

So, I hope BP can keep up with the increased traffic. I used another photo site years ago (PhotoSIG to be exact) but it was soooo slow I hated it and now I never go there.
