Not sure if its a bug or something I was doing wrong but I couldnt get in for a good while last night after accepting the new terms. When I clicked Agree, it just brought me back to the same page, without the agree button. Was going in a loop for a good while, clicking on any links on the page trying to get out and all links just brought me back to the terms page. Eventually I was brought to the main forum.
Maybe it was just waiting for an admin to allow me access?

Hi gavin and sorry for your inconvenience.

The error log does not show snything at the moment and there's no admin confirmation required.
Do you happen to use Firefox as your browser? Did you try logging in via PC or mobile?
I've noticed that FF mobile has some issues with updating cached data. Normally this is resolved by refreshing the page. 
For instance when I log out and immediately try to log back in, I often get a "Session timed out" error and need to delete the browser data or wait for 5-8 minutes until it works again.

No need to apologies dont be silly!
Yeah Im using Firefox, could have just been something there. As I said it eventually let me in so all good. No I didnt try any other browsers, if it happens again I'll try another one.

Thanks, Gavin, that's actually pretty helpful! Firefox does act differently than Chrome based browsers regarding updating the page/cache data. I'm going to make a disclaimer for users like you and me.

Edit
The issue seems solved. I changed a server setting.

I was automatically logged out even though i said i want to be logged in "forever" [Opera 93.0.4585.37]
no idea, no idea

Could you try again, please? I just changed the cookie name in our settings, maybe that was the reason.

Hm... Mobile or PC? Do you use any script blockers?
I just installed Opera for PC and it seems working so far, both logged in and out.

PC. I was logged out - haven't used the forum on PC since it was changed so needed to log in again. First there was the snow, but as soon as i was logged in, it was gone. No script blockers or anything. Can check again on my tablet, but it has the same configuration as my pc (Win10, Opera93).

edit:
Same over there. Logged in - no snow. Logged out - snow.

edit2:
If i log out over there, i will also be logged out here. Don't know it that was the same in the old forum.
no idea, no idea

Hm. Didn't happen to me. Could you please delete your browser cache and cookies and try again?

And yes, logging out is independet from where you do that because it's synched with the server, I believe.

Ah, damn, the tale of naughty embeds..
TLDR:
I gave it a shot and the result would be a bit messy and require a bit more effort than I thought.

Spoiler
The thing is, the way embeds work is, they fetch the data from the content provider. And of course there are many different formats in which the media elements are provided, mostly with fixed widths and heights. The result is that on smaller displays like mobiles, videos and stuff would go outside the screen and mess everything up. I had to come up with a solution to tackle that, and, apparently, this prevents text alignment to work on these media containers. I have an extra HTML div element with a class called "embedder_media" which handles the general media dimension. If the text alignment class (e.g. "centertext") would go directly into that div element next to my "embedder_media", everything would be fine. But SMF puts the text alignment class around everything else and that somehow stops the alignment from working (looks like it fills up the space after the container). I can't explain it any better, I'm not experienced enough. I can ask the SMf team but they seem pretty busy these days as I have other questions waiting for any response.

Edit: I had an idea. Hope it works now.
