I have the same problem in ie7! Most of the links don't work including New Topic and Post Reply. Oddly enough, I was able to reply in one thread but the txt box where you type your msg wouldn't work.

It is ;)

Actually I'm quite sure it has to do with the transparent PNG file I'm using to simulate opacity in the background.
I used conditional statements in the stylesheet to use a different method of loading the PNG for ie 6 and below, but I guess IE7 is not really playing like its supposed to. That of IE7s handling of transparent PNGs is horribly flawed, which could also be a likely case. Either way I'm really getting tired of having to dumb things down for IE. I've had to outright dismiss so many ideas because of IE that I've stopped caring. So use something better fools. :lol:

btw I work on all this on a mac now so you can see how high a priority IE compatibility is for me now. I hate Microsoft THAT much.

why do you need to use png for the transparency? isn't the bg a solid color?

either way, i guess i will just start using firefox when i want to post here. :lol:

sry. I didn't say I will fix it, but I will. I'll just have to dumb it down for IE.

Haha, me too!

Using a triple boot system now, Windows for the games that MUST have Windows, Fedora Core 7 and Ubuntu Linux otherwise, and of course, trusty ol' Firefox!

Someone's grandfather at the New Year's party I went to had a Firefox hat. I tried to ask him about it but he had no idea. The rest of party was full of rednecks. I have no idea how he got it.

speaking of grandparents and firefox hehe

i got to met firefox's creator's grandpa. he was wearing a firefox t-shirt and i thought it was odd because he
was so old and so we talked to him for a bit and then he said that his grandson had made it and all that, gave
me his name and all that and i thought it was bs then buzz and i looked it up and operantly it seemed to be true
