Ditto. WTF is going of? GAH!


We're looking into it... BUT it's more complex than you'd think & when we have answers you'll be the first to know I promise.

I'm wondering if anybody's found a solution to this problem as of yet.

I've messed with a few display options but no dice.

Sorry 'bout the necro...

But are people still seeing this, or is it just me? I'm on the latest Firefox, 3.6.13.

I started poking around with the embedded css and found this nugget that I think might be the problem.
QUOTE
.codetop,
.sqltop,
.htmltop
{
background: #FDDBCC url(d #000;
color: #000;
font-weight: bold;
margin: 0 auto 0 auto;
padding: 3px;
border-bottom: 0;
(style_images/Jet/css_img_code.gif) no-repeat right: ;
(style_images/mmmv2007/css_img_code.gif) no-repeat right: ;
}

If I pull out the 'background:' line, everything looks nice and clean again. (Those last two lines look a little odd to me too, but I'm no CSS guru.) And of course I don't know if this causes other layout problems in other browsers or anything. But I thought I'd share in hopes of helping. smile.gif

The skins as far as I can tell have never been updated since I made them way back in 2007, considering the evolutions in web browsers and IPB itself its no wonder there is a degree of crap floating around.

If people want a "quick" fix, Use the skin selector down below and switch to MMMV2007 Low Res which avoids most of the junk at the cost of looking rather retro.

Yeah, still seeing it. I think I'm used to it now.

No, he's right -- not making that one character doomed the line. Doomed, I tell you. The minute we left him out of Series 1 a raven flew through our window. And killed an intern.

I got used to it and it didn't really bug me anymore. But, I just switched over to this wacky, old-school "skin," and I think I like it better.

I guess we could invest in new skins. I never see any issues on my end so there is no "motivation" to change. I rarely use Firefox because it seems to have issues more often than not (in my experience). I tend to use Chrome more than anything these days.

In all honesty it would probably not take me massses of effort to reskin the site to be more standards compliant.

Alternatively I can delete the offending bit in the css (thanks Ivan) and all is good.

Yay, it's fixed! I was on less than an hour ago and used the search feature in that garbled mess in the corner. And I just came back and it looks clean now! Too clean...

Ady, you still have wonder twin powers on this site and you'd never offend any of us by making things work better or look prettier, mate.

So if Shanester and Ady are the Wonder Twins, who's Gleek? smile.gif

I have to say, I've gotten used to the ugly mess that this site feels new and it kind of threw me off where things are now. Heck, I didn't even know there was an expand/contract for each subforum on the main page!

Wow! It's clean again! I feel the need to put on some pants to surf the site now. wink.gif

Just wondering how lazy that we really are that we sat in that garbled mess for a year and just "got used to it"?
