Re: Unable to Post
That's good to hear, thanks for letting me know. If you happen to learn more about what's up with IE on the other machine just drop me another note.

Have a great rest of Easter!

Re: Curiouser and Curiouser
Thanks for finding this. I ran a couple simple tests and I don't believe I can fix this. In compatibility mode IE8 will not let you replace the mouse click handler for <button>'s with your own handler.

Compatibility mode describes itself as being for old websites that don't display properly, saying that turning on compatibility mode may fix this. But the website displays fine without compatibility mode, so I'm going to close this issue. Thanks again for the help, you and AZPaul3.

Re: Five Days Later, Still Broken!
AZPaul3 just discovered that his IE8 wasn't working because he had compatibility mode set. Can you verify whether you have compatibility mode set? If it is set then please unset it and see if that helps.

If it is not set then could you perform the experiment I described to AZPaul3 in Message 382. Let me know what happens and we'll go from there.

I've never fiddled with anything having to do with compatibility mode. And most certainly not in the recent past. How do I even check that?

There's a little icon that looks like a broken page at the very top the the IE browser window. Click on that and it should tell you what mode you're in. If you're in compatibility mode then turn it off and see if things start working.

Assuming that didn't work, here's the next thing to check:

  1. While viewing an EvC Forum page, right click and select "View Source".

  2. On line 8 you'll see a link to dBoard.js. Cut-n-paste that into your browser's address window and hit return. Oh wait, IE only get's confused when you do this. You'll have to cut-n-paste it into the FF address window.

  3. Scroll down and see if you can find a function called ieButtonfix. Cut-n-paste that function into a message reply to me at this thread. This will tell me if your site is perhaps caching things like css and Javascript.

Re: Five Days Later, Still Broken!
Poking around on the Internet I was able to find that compatibility mode changed rapidly between IE6 and IE8. It didn't exist in IE6, I think that IE7 made it available but not under user control, and IE8 places it in the browser window header and in the Tools menu as Compatibility View (checked if you're in Compatibility Mode) and Compatibility View Settings (which brings up a dialog window).

So while I'm not certain, let's assume that in IE7 Compatibility Mode is on all the time for you, which means it is behaving identically to IE6. I do have access to IE6 and will attempt to fix the problem later today.

Re: Five Days Later, Still Broken!
Turns out I need some additional information, please follow these steps:

  1. Enter this URL in your IE7 address window and hit return:

    http://www.evcforum.net/cgi-bin/bc.cgi

  2. Click on Board Configuration.

  3. Click on Print Sys Info.

  4. Cut-n-paste the value of HTTP_USER_AGENT into a reply to this message.

Re: Five Days Later, Still Broken!
Hi Dwise1,

The problem should be fixed on both IE6 and IE7, but I've only been able to test on IE6.

Please click on reload/refresh then give it a try. Thanks for your patience.

Re: Listing of db codes??
I have no idea what you're talking about and it won't happen again.

Seriously, thanks for bringing this to our attention.

There's a formatting bug now in the FAQ, I'm looking at it now.

AbE: FAQ format bug fixed.

Board Up and Running
Apologies for the outage. We just discovered a control panel bug that crashed the board. Problem should not recur.

Hi Dogmafood!

Thanks for reminding me about the Essential Links menu, I've fixed the link for release issues.

Isn't that interesting, I'm also unable to view those threads in FF 5.0. I'm looking into it, now. Thanks for the bug report!
