You're welcome. I've bombarded you with loads of information, and I apologise for that (slightly), but once you set it up you should find things a lot easier. Like I said, any problems, either post 'em here or pm me.
Rooners yes it is an IE specific problem and I made a workaround for it. You don't need to refresh every time. If you are up for the adventure though, I recommend you switch to a better browser. Your experience on the internet will be vastly improved.
I would just like to put my 2 cents in here, not about IE, which I think is crap, but about MNHQ's habit of starting to reply on a thread like this and then just...disappearing.
I realize they have lots to do and not many people, but it would be nice to know they are checking on all threads they've started responding on that hasn't had a resolution, like Rooners original thread on this.
Even just a once a day 'we really are working on this' would be better than the radio silence that tends to happen when only one or two posters are having an issue.
Rooners: What version of Windows do you use? That might also have a bearing on this.
Is it possible you've inadvertently told IE to use "compatibility view" for mn? That could explain it. This page at microsoft shows what compatibility view is and how to add sites to it or take them off. If MN is on that list try taking it off.
Hi All, we do support Internet Explorer of course, we just can't make everything work in older versions (versions 8 and below) which some people still have on older computers. But message poster should work in any reasonable browser, and everything on the site should work in newer versions of IE as well.
When message poster doesn't work and it throws you back to the top of the page, it's usually a sign that the page didn't finish loading properly. So refreshing might help.
Beyond that it's worth letting us know if you do see problems like that. Thanks.
