When clicking on a thread from the list (either in a forum or from new posts the header background and logo disappear briefly then reappear.

Same happens when clicking out of a thread back to new posts

Please can anyone help?

Thanks

This is actually working correctly, in theory, though it shouldn't be too noticeable.

The HTML is optimised so that the content loads first.

This is the HTML:

upload_2014-5-7_13-3-12.png

Notice how there is

<div id="content"> and that is where all the content is
then AFTER that, you see the <header>
and very shortly after that you see the <footer>

The <header> bit is therefore loaded after the content, so this may give the impression that briefly it has disappeared.

Thanks can you please confirm if what is happening here is acceptable?

I find it slightly annoying. Surely as the header is not changing, there is no need for it to reload. I notice it doesn't happen with this forum, but then there is no background image, just a logo.

It does happen with this forum, it's just a bit less noticeable because the header is smaller.

Yes, it seems to be working as I would expect at your site.
