Images are showing up though but I'm still getting the weirdness in screen shot #2.
I had to refresh twice to be able to post this.
Chat doesn't open up either and now file attachments are no longer available.
I'm baffled!!! Hence this post..need a few fresh eyes on the issue.
At least I know I'm not going crazy now.
oh..and emoticons aren't clickable. I think it's possessed and that's my official diagnosis.
