Forums: Index > Watercooler > External links appear weird?

It's been like this for a few days already, but on my screen (both IE and Firefox, logged in or not), I see a bunch of garbled square patterns over all the external links. See screenshot. What's up with that? It seems like the external link icon (box with arrow) is being replicated all over the link text. Logisim 06:36, July 7, 2011 (UTC)

Chrome has that problem as well; no idea why. The next best alternative is to link separately, like so[1].  nagy   talkScorpio-fulllog     08:38, July 7, 2011 (UTC)

I believe this problem is related to a recent wikia update. This started right after a recent update and was commented on DR.F's page by Best Robot. --Veggienatersml 16:34, July 7, 2011 (UTC)

Or it could just be all Robot's fault. Nohai 16:38, July 7, 2011 (UTC)

Possibly, though i can not find the conversation now. I may be wrong about where the conversation was. but that was the jist of it. Veggienatersml 16:41, July 7, 2011 (UTC)

Same thing happens when using Safari as well.  Dr Hax headshot  Skeve613ask Dr. Hax  16:51, July 8, 2011 (UTC)
