I downloaded Opera the other day to try it out as they had offered Opera registrations for free. Today I came here and tried to log on with Opera I couldn't log on. The logon page would accept my user name, password, and the security code, but then it would just refresh the page when hitting the submit button and I would not be logged on.

Also, when I logged on using Firefox, as usual, and went to reply to a post the section of the page where the previous posts on that thread are normally shown only showed the smileys that had been used in the previous posts. No text at all was shown.

BTW, this is all happened while I was using Debian as my OS. I haven't tried surfing here using Windows so I don't know if there are any problems with the site using Windows.

We've been making some changes to the site lately and it's possible something got "fubar-ed". I'll mention it to jimmo and see what's up. Thanks for the "heads up", Freddy. Good to see you here. Smile

I get the same thing happening in Firefox, Debian also. Since Windows is gone I can't test it in that, but everything works fine in Konquerer. Smile

OUCH!!!!!!!!

Sorry about that folks! So much for standards. As Trip said, we are in the process of making some changes. I wanted to add a number of themes/styles to the forums so the could would at least look close to those for the rest of the site. Because the forums are port from phpBB to PHPNuke, there are a few things that do not always work right and and I had to twist some things to get them to work. I use Konqueror, but also test in on IE because the majority of the people on the site actually IE.

Well, apparently, what I did does not make Firefox or Opera happy. I cannot say if this was always the case, because I never have tested it with Firefox or Opera. It's definately something I need to do for the future. Even so, I appreaciate anyone who uses the Firefox or Opera to tell me if they un into problems.

On the technical side, the problem seems to be with the fact that previous post are written to an inline frame (IFRAME). I did a little searching and found similar problems with IFRAMEs although not this exact one. When I removed the IFRAME code, things seem to work out OK. On the one hand, the IFRAME make scrolling nice if you are looking for a specific post. On the other hand, better no IFRAME than nothing at all.

Sorry for any problems people have had. I will try to fix things up as soon as I can.

One more thing.

I've noticed that when quoting parts of a previous post now that the quote isn't set aside in it's own box. They now look, at least on my PC, as part of the post. It's now difficult to differentiate between what I've quoted from someone else and what I've written.

I have noticed the same thing in both Firefox and Konquerer. Smile However, the previous posts on the reply page now look fine in Firefox.

Hopefully that is just an issue with the style sheet, but I am not sure. I guess that I may have goofed up more than I thought.

One more thing. It is now no longer possible to post hyper links. I've posted two of them and they simply don't show up in my posts.

Actually, the hyper links don't work in either Opera or Firefox then because when I tried using hyper links I was using Firefox.

I put things more or less back the way they were. I was hoping that all I needed to do was to create a new style and change the CSS file. However, it was not as simple as that. There are apparently a lot of interactions between the templates and styles, and I ended up missing a few. Instead of creating just new CSS files, I created whole sets of templates for each of the theses. Currently, I only have two new these (Sand Journey and NukeNews). These *seem* to work write. Default for the forums is back to subSilver until I have chance to test things more.
