I recently began using a new browser (Internet Explorer 8 ), and have noticed some issues. The consistent issue is that the OC.net banner at the top of pages extends down too far by maybe 1/4 inch, partially covering where it says OrthodoxChristianity.net / simple machines forum. Another issue that I've seen from time to time is that, when I first enter a thread, sometimes the signature at the end of one post will be placed over top the beginning of the next post. If I highlight that part of the page, where the misplaced signature is, the formatting returns to normal. Is there something in my browser settings that is perhaps not set correctly, that I could change?

Lol. Well the last time I tried to use Firefox, I was having more issues with it than I ever had with Windoze Internets Exploder, so I switched back.

Use Opera or Chrome, they are a of the few browsers that actually passed the Acid3 test.  To pass, a browser must score 100/100.  IE8 scored 20/100.  :/

The header at the top is a result of my sloppy coding. I hope to fix that design at some point before or during Lent.

Love these!  I only use Chrome or Opera...especially at home.  Very few viruses are written to sneak in that way.  Most go for IE.

I have used Firefox, but, found that many pages I require for work wouldn't load properly.

Use IE8's compatibility mode and make sure that recent compatibility mode updates are installed.  The issue has been discussed on other threads....

Just toying with Opera right now.  It's one of six web browsers I have currently installed on my Windows 7 system, the others being IE 8 (of course), Firefox, FlashPeak's SlimBrowser, Google Chrome, and Safari.  (IMO, a serious student of web app development needs to be able to test his work on multiple browsers.)  Opera markets their free browser as the fastest available today, and I can certainly believe it!  I've not had much chance yet to explore Opera for all the other aspects I consider important to my web browsing experience, but Opera looks pretty darn good if speed is important to you.

Just for those curious, I tested the OCnet design for Lent in IE 6, IE 7, IE 8, Firefox, Safari, and Opera.

The Pascha design currently up should work in all those since I only changed the graphics and not the structural markup, but I did not test in IE6.

From here on out, I will not support IE6 as it is a dinosaur and just can't do the things other browsers can.  The forum should work in IE6 for some time still, but it won't always.  Only like 2-5% of our users use IE6 at this point though.

As far as having to use IE8 in compatibility mode, the forum software we use (SMF) is going through a big fight between developers and the LLC that manages it. I am waiting to see what happens before making a decision which direction to take the upgrades in the future, but those new versions will fix the issues with IE8 compatibility.  Nebelpfede showed me how to tweak the code, but I am reticent to do hacks because I do my web work in rotations (since I can't ever seem to get enough help >>>cough<<<<) and so when I finish something on OCnet, it's on to one of the other 10 sites I work on. By the time I get back to OCnet, I often forget what code hacks I've done and when I change something I might forget the hack...yes, I write them down, but trust me, when you are trying to manage as much stuff as I am, you feel confused about the work half the time.

Just wanted to let people know how things work around here, in case anyone was curious.

Microsoft released a whole bunch of updates today (second Tuesday of each month), including the most recent IE8 compatibility updates which resolved the issue.  All In Private Filtering did was resetting the cookie, causing you to log out of OC.Net.

Is that why I got logged out of half the sites I visit? Or was that just a coincidence?  Oddly enough, I didn't get logged out of OC.net.
