Oh I want to note I still have the same issues with long posts and PMs Undecided Tongue....at least using quick reply and modify symbol (sorry don't know official term for that icon) seems to help me not go insane. Smiley

Hey guys,

I just looked into this and it looks like there's a "fix" you can do for now to make Craftster be compatible with IE8. Basically there's a button you can press in IE8 that makes it act like it's still IE7 when you want it to. It's called "Compatibility Mode" and you can read about how to use it here:

http://www.neowin.net/news/main/09/02/21/more-about-2400-websites-and-ie-8-compatibility-list

Looks pretty easy. I guess you just tell the browser which websites you want to see in IE7 mode.

Sorry about this!! Sad We'll definitely try to get to the bottom of this but at least this should be a workaround in the mean time! Smiley

I'm glad I stumbled upon this post, I thought my computer was just wacky.  My fix - well workaround - is just to use Firefox when I want to create a new post.

I thought I was the only one having problems.  I've been trying to keep my posts to only a sentence or two because it is nearly impossible to deal with.  I'm going to go read the link and see if it will help.

It works great for me if I use Compatibility Mode.

I have been having trouble for some time with posts and replies that are over a certain length (about two text window lengths). It's hard to describe, but as I type, the window flashes back and forth between the line I'm typing and the top of the topic/reply. And I can't scroll down to the end to type or edit. Is this a built-in feature to make us keep our posts short, or is it an actual glitch?

This was addressed in another thread awhile back.  I was having this issue, also.  I went into my profile and opened up the quick reply option to try to work around it.

I think it has something to do with IE8.

So sorry about that!  Craftster is not compatible with IE 8 yet, but they do provide a work around for sites such as ours.  It's called Compatibility Mode.

To learn how to enable it, read here:  http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=299447.msg3592014#msg3592014

I'll also merge this thread with that one.

Okay so if I type anything longer then the body message window, usually it will just continue on, the little bar on the side gets smaller and there is no harm and you can scroll down to edit your work or what have you but for the last two days when I try to edit a LONG post... say the first post in a swap.. it will try to jump to the top of the body of the post as soon as you start to type at the bottom of the post and it will not let me see what I an editing, typeing etc. it does however let you scroll back down so you can see what's there.

Hmm i'm trying to figure out how to explain this, does that make sence at all... It's really annoying that I cannot write long posts or edit long posts because of it.
