David, I am still unable to see any of these features when I'm logged in (as I said on a previous thread HERE) although if I log out and view as a guest, I can then see the features.  Also, I am unable to see the flags and expertise features when logged in but can as a guest. 
I know James and yourself had a look at this in the past but I don't think either of you found any answers.

Hi Angel, 

I wonder if it might be your internet security settings?  Have you got Norton with it set to high? 

I have just tested logged on  and logged off and so has my wife and all is showing fine. I have attached a screen grab below of what your post should look like to you. You have set your country to England, it appears, and all the social media buttons are showing fine.

Hi David
I've sent you a couple of PMs.

It's all sorted now  :)

Thanks Angel, no idea how you did that, but well done. Have PMd you to find out how you changed the template.  I know we did have the option but I can't find it now.

 ::)

Anyway, it seems that the various template may have been causing problems for some, so I have reset all members to the latest default template. Apologies in advance if it's not the colour you are used to, but it should mean that you will benefit from all the latest features and updates.

I've just looked at the various themes and it says two people are using the illustrative theme.

This link might help - HERE

Thanks Angel, I have now reset all to the default and disabled the other themes because they are not compatible with the recent forum updates, which means that users set for those themes will miss out on features. It also means that others don't have to struggle to figure out how to change their settings - it might be that not all are as smart as you.

Hi Dave,

Just tried to tweet from the button on Tumblidoo's post on the Enterprise Club and it doesn't seem to have come with a '1' next to the tweet?

Hi all, I have removed these after a forum user suggested they might be slowing pages down when they load. Since removing the buttons I think the discussion threads are loading much faster. If you want to tweet or Facebook like any threads please grab the thread address and take it over to Twitter and Facebook manually. Sorry about it slowing page load times.

Yes, the forum was very slow loading the facebook and twitter elements, especially on my work network.

So I welcome their removal  ;D
