writing a reply on the Percy=Deist thread, I used Message 4 and then clicked on it in preview so that I could copy and quote.
I'm unable to duplicate this. Here's what I did, tell me how to modify it: I clicked on the "reply" button for message one, entered [msg=-4] into the message box, clicked on preview, then clicked on the "Message 4" link in the preview box, and it was fine.
About tiff files, I think that's outside my control. According to the Wikipedia article on Image file formats, "The TIFF image format is not widely supported by web browsers."
How is your email? I'm wondering where I am with the site space and all the pictures and articles there.
Coincidentally, I was intending to send you an inquiry about this sometime this week. I'm gradually moving websites and subdomains over from the old server, and I need to know if you want your EvC Forum subdomain moved over.
You mention my email - did you send me email? If so, I haven't received any, so let me know when you sent it.
Well done, Percy. Please don`t ever change the colours, contrast, post number in thread,etc., all the little things that make EVC a joy to read. Well done, Percy. Please don`t ever change the colours, contrast, post number in thread,etc., all the little things that make EVC a joy to read.
I was just going to ask whether he wouldn't take the opportunity to change the background to bright pink with yellow flashing stars.
I don't know whether this is related, but when I post a message I seem to be logged out: the button in the upper left says "login" rather than "logout", and I have to log in again to post another message. On the other hand, my name remains in the list of members that are online.
There's one change I've been holding off on, and it may address your problem. Since it's been 48 hours I'm going to make this change now. Let me know if the problem goes away. You may still experience the problem one more time, but hopefully not after that.
Another possible cause of the problem is that some browsers actually cache the domain-name/IP mapping, which speeds things up since they can skip the name mapping step after the first access, but which means they could miss changes in the mapping, which is exactly what happens when a site changes to a new IP address. So you might try shutting down your browser and starting it up again. With IE, which is tightly integrated to the OS, you may have to logoff/logon, or evnr reboot.
Whilst the site is now loading much faster, I have been seeing a flaw on the reply screens. They have been displaying the message that I'm replying to in both normal and peek modes, next to each other. Not good for longer posts.
Having said that, it looks normal on this screen. Is this fixed now?
