It's a new gallery software version and it has some problems. Namely, viewing it mobile (iphone / android) is difficult or impossible. Is that how you're visiting?
If you're on a PC, it should look okay.
Regardless, it's a necessary evil for a while to use that gallery software upgrade. It'll help with the migration to new forum software (they share login info) and then after the new forum is going I'll look to address the gallery.
I use a Mac at home (Firefox) and had to log in to view the forums and the gallery; after the initial login, I am remembered on both. My office computer (Dell PC with IE) lets me view the forums by my login name, but it won't let me view the gallery the same way. I haven't taken the trouble to login on the gallery at work.
