Anybody else having a problem with the buttons/

Posted by EMark, Oct 26, 2011.

This morning I received a private message from a Snoother saying that he was doing so because he could not submit a reply to a thread.

Son of a gun.  Neither can I.  When I click on the Submit button, I see a little error message flash at the bottom of the page and after that all the links on that page are broken.  All I can do is exit the page.

I had a similar experience, earlier today, when trying to write a review on a wine.

It looks like I can start a new thread.

Which browser are you using Emark?  PM me if you can't respond to this thread.

I tried to send you a PM, yesterday, but was unable to do so.  So, I sent a message through the "report bugs" link.  I'm going to guess that you have not seen that.  When I click on the "Submit" button in a few minutes I'll learn whether it is working, today.

So, here is my browser information:

    Internet Explorer 8

    Version 8.0.6001.18702

Thanks for your help with this.

Looks like it's going to work.

Testing in IE8 now and it appears to be OK.  Hard to believe that it would affect all button/link functionality on the site, but maybe possible if one of our ads did something funny.  We'll keep an eye out for this.

Also note that sometimes clearing your browser's cache may correct temporary issues that you're having with the site.

Much as I hate the idea of putting the fix on the consumer, clearing out your cache is always a good idea.  I've been finding the site works better with FireFox, which I am using almost exclusively these days.

Thanks for your help Chris/Fox.  It seemed to be working fine earlier today, and I was able to post a couple responses.  I've been away most of the day and just read your suggestion.  So, I just now tried the clearing of the cache.

Site works fine for me with Firefox, Safari and Chrome, other than the editing box issue mentioned elsewhere. Oh yeah, and the way-to-frequent unwanted dropdowns from the menu tabs bar.

Haven't used IE in a very, very long time....

I am using Internet Explorer and I also get unwanted dropdowns from the menu tabs bar.Also I recently wrote a review of a Domaine Debray wine and there are a lot of wines from this producer on the database but there is no facility to give information about this winery as there has been in the past for other producers

I really appreciate the reports guys - I just did a more thorough evaluation of IE7 and resolved some strange issues that affected general site functionality on that platform.  I also revised the menu tabs code a bit to fight those unwanted dropdowns.  Hopefully site experience should be substantially improved for Internet Explorer.
