Issues: IssuesThe new beta version of Explorer does not like some part of SpoFi. The Bottom of the page where the links are, occurs in the middle of the comments, and the comments continue through the green footer. Does anyone else have the new Explorer, and consequently the same problems as me?

No, but I have huge problems sometimes with the posting text box and previews not working in the latest Mozilla Firefox. A refresh fixes it, so I can get by. Basically the text box is sometimes only half drawn and when I preview, the "preview" and "post" buttons appear halfway up the text box. It's a sporadic problem. Next time I see it I'll grab a screenshot and link it here.

how do I get a screenshot?

Do you have a PrtScn key on your keyboard? If so, go to the Web site that you want to show off and then hit that key so it will put that page in Windows' clipboard. I'm not exactly sure what you are supposed to do after that, but I open Photoshop, start a New image and hit Ctrl-V (to paste from the clipboard) on my keyboard. You can then resize, crop, whatever and then save the image as a .jpg. Then I upload the screenshot to my Flickr account so I can show it off here. Or there. Was this helpful? If so, scratch your butt. Was this not helpful? If so, punch Jeff Friesen.

In windows, press the "print screen" button and it will be in your clipboard. Open up MS Paint and press Ctrl-V. Save it and upload it to an image hosting service, and Bob's your uncle. EDIT: beat me to it there NoMich!

Demanding much?

Speaking of issues, Everett, you should chill out a little. This place isnít run by a corporation or anything. The Pantheon is a just a handful of people who have lives of their own and things to do, and donít get paid for keeping Sportsfilter up and running. Most issues will be fixed, and a few wonít, but youíre going to have to give them some time to check the situation out. Thereís no customer service department here or anything.

Sorry dude. I'm all irritated over some of the newer posters with their caps locks and triple exclamation points and such, and I just assumed you were a new guy who was unfamiliar with the system.

Ok, now hug.

Hey, this website is wonky in the beta version of IE! Oh noes!!!!1!

And in Firefox, which is the most standards compliant browser available. Not that I'm fussed: I can hit refresh. But if you don't point things out then people won't be aware of them. Now everybody breathe.

Ommmmmmmmmmmmm. There, that fixed it.

Okay, that's cute.

Ok, it happened again and I had some time, so I created a screenshot. This was using Firefox on Windows XP Pro: screenshot.

posted by walrus at 12:39 PM on May 04, 2006

yeah that happens to me too. Refresh and you're fine.

I get what Walrus's screenshot shows all the time, same config. But I'm lazy and don't want to hit F5.
