EDIT: also reorganised some of the front page categories myself to get them to line up in sync. Fixed also.
EDIT: OK found the remove category-icon margins fix. Still think the above is a prob worth mentioning. will try up a pic
thanks @julian @psychobunny
@baris Guess that should have been the obvious, and yeah, we had some code that would auto generate a background for users. Disabling that did fix it. I really appreciate the help, feel kind of stupid now lol. Besides that being fixed now we still have an ongoing issue with plugins not working like emoji's, shoutbox, and so on. And words of advice on that?
