I'm trying to view the new theme but having a problem logging into help! I've
never seen this type of problem before, perhaps someone out there has.

I'm able to login but the credentials at the top-right aren't
displayed properly.

I've attached a screenshot. It may be something that I'm doing.

Thanks.
