i already purchased but the link above may work to buy until the sidebar link is fixed. you can change the ba number in the link to whatever you like if you copy and paste it into the address bar of your browser.

works for me just fine

AdminShade January 9 2011 12:22 PM EST

works normally for me?

Admindudemus [jabberwocky] January 9 2011 12:27 PM EST

i had refreshed my sidebar due to ns's post saying to do so. maybe only those of us that have refreshed it have the issue?

AdminTal Destra [G6] January 9 2011 12:32 PM EST

yup, i right clicked and reloaded the left bar, and now its happening to me

I was just wondering that myself Dude. I refreshed only five minutes before this post.

AdminTal Destra [G6] January 9 2011 1:05 PM EST

seems the fight feed is dead too

AdminLamuness January 9 2011 1:12 PM EST

It appears the Fight Feed and the BA purchase link has been temporarily turned off.

The BA purchase link is part of a widget. Turning off this widget means:
1. The total amount of BA you have does not get updated unless you click fight / refresh the sidebar.
2. Clicking on the BA purchase link causes it to open the sidebar again in the main window due to the way it was originally coded.

I disabled the get more link and the fight feed to see if it would have an effect on things.

well I think you succeeded ;-P

The dual sidebar thing happened to me a few days ago..

horseguy001 January 10 2011 8:31 AM EST

Is there a way to buy more BA without using the side bar? I can't seem to figure it out.

Phrede January 10 2011 8:32 AM EST

so what do we do about thius - I can get any more BA

Scroll up a few post to admindudemus's post where he includes a link.
Copy the link and substitute whatever number in in place of the 5.
Hit enter.

This method worked fine for me

AdminNightStrike January 10 2011 9:02 AM EST

I restored the old functionality of the get more link.

Underage Drinking January 10 2011 12:46 PM EST

i have to use dudes link to get more ba. i still get the same result as earlier

Lochnivar January 10 2011 12:47 PM EST

Have you reloaded CB since the change... it works just fine for me.

I use Firefox and for some reason its no longer working utilizing Firefox but it works using IE.

Demigod January 10 2011 1:45 PM EST

It's working fine in my FF. You can try right clicking in the frame, choosing This Frame --> Reload. If that doesn't help, you can click Tools from the top bar, select Clear Recent History, and dump cache... though I'm not sure if that'll do anything here.

Why is refreshing always so hard?

Kirimori January 10 2011 3:28 PM EST

Sidebar no longer seems to be refreshing automatically in Firefox. The Fight Feed is also empty, although I assume that was done on purpose? The only real concern about the auto refresh is that I'm not sure how much BA has regenerated until I manually refresh since there's no timer feature implemented yet.

Self-correction -- Kiri didn't ask about the get more link. :(
