    As you can see there are some ongoing changes happening to the forums right now. If you come across any bugs - and at this point you probably will - you can feel free to post them here.

    Thanks!

    No big deal at all, but my avatar isn't showing up. (It shows up in my control panel.) Is it because it's a GIF animation?

    Do you have "use custom avatar" radio button selected, under the picture of the avatar?

    On the main page of this site (I did want to use the term "front page" but it sounded way too Microsofty and cliche), clicking the "top five stats" hyperlink brings up a monster sized white box and right in the middle a tiny little cute menu that is dwarfed by the sheer size of its parent, I feel sorry for the poor little menu sitting there all on its lonesome in the cold, please make it feel all snug and warm

    Me: The intranet is broken
    Sys Admin: Stop using firefox
    Me: But phases told me to quit using IE
    Sys Admin: What is more important, AF or the intranet?
    Me: AF of course
    Sys Admin: wise choice, wise choice, but how are you going to submit your expenses?
    Me: Dont spend anything
    Sys Admin: Problem solved

    LOL.

    Seriously though.... yeah it's an IE bug.. it occurs with our popups, like the "quick links" and stuff. In fact, it's happening on a number of vbulletin sites I'm on.

    Phases will look into it.

    Thanks :)

    I can understand why it is an IE bug, Microsoft are infamous in the way they ignore standards. Fortunately (without using WINE) I am unable to run IE on my home machines.

    When you edit one of your own posts using quick edit. There is no option to save, you have to click the "vote now" button to save your changes. Its not obviously clear that this is what you should do, and your not actually voting for anything anyway.
     
  11. are you looking within the post itself? you will see save, go advanced, delete and cancel.

    under that you will see edit, quote, etc.. ignore those. use the save button withing the box

    Yes it says that now, so they must have changed it. When I made the post above the button labelled "save" was actually labelled "vote now"

    It did it again just now, the save button was called "Vote". I edited again and it changed back to "Save"...

    It took me a minute to figure out what you meant but I remember now! That's a bug that effects IE users.

    I totally forgot about that.

    Thanks for the reminder!

    Youre welcome... So is there a fix or do I live with it as long as I use IE8?

    Why aren't signatures being added to specific posts anymore? Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't..

    I've been on extremely large forums and I've not seen that policy before.

    its not a policy, its an addon to speed page loads but more importantly clean up threads for reading.
