1 In mobile version clicking links flashes in white. CSS setting within the template I need to find. Also tables don't have borders. 01.12.2017 On Hold Low priority

3 Layout needs more Gladiatus menu items if possible 01.12.2017 In Progress  
10 Footer is bad so disabled at the moment. Needs fixing 14.12.2017 In Progress

Resolved Issues
4 There seems to be a caching issue that has never happened before and it started today. I have made no changes so i have logged a call with the ISP. Changes to articles or uploads behave weird 07.12.2017 Resolved Turned out to be a caching issue at the hosting provider. Domain caching turned on by a system update they told me....
5 Menu items are either background image or text. Can't be both. 01.12.2017 Resolved Used a custom submenudjo css class in personal.css and it worked.
6 Britannia page is not loading in /britannia-expditions 07.12.2017 Resolved Had to be part of menu to work
7 Looking for a good visitor counter as this one does not filter search crawlers and I can't really see the real visitor count. I don't expect it to be much due to the limited popularity of the game 01.12.2017 Resolved StatCounter - online free version. Great tool
9 Updating reverts changes in my template. Need to copy it as separate so it's not touched by updates 14.12.2017 Resolved Copied the original template and made it my own - Gladiatus for both admin and site. Tested and worked fine on upgrading
8 Submenu text is not bold 11.12.2017 Resolved submenudjo font-weight bold
