There was another post about this awhile back.  If you're using IE8 it's a problem.  There's a button at the top of your screen, to the left of your refresh button.  It's a compatibility button.  If you click on it, it's supposed to stop the screen from messing with you.  Sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn't, but it's worth a shot, especially for long posts.

The only other option that you have it to type your entire post into notepad or wordpad, and then copy and paste it into Craftster.  As far as I know, this is the only place on the planet where it's a problem.

Hiya, irish_chicky!  Definitely click the Compatibility Button that pinokeeo just mentioned.  It should solve the issue for you. Smiley

I'm going to merge this thread with the other full thread about it.  Basically, some websites are not compatible with IE8.  IE is aware of this and included a built-in fix for affected websites (such as ours).

We're definitely not the only website with this issue, though.  I'm sure this list has been greatly reduced since 2009, but originally there were 2400+ major websites with IE8 rendering issues.  If you're into the techy side of things, here is an article that is fairly interesting to us geeks Cheesy http://www.neowin.net/news/main/09/02/21/more-about-2400-websites-and-ie-8-compatibility-list  I think many people first notice it here because it's common for us to type ridiculously long posts due to tutorials, swaps, etc.

Luckily, no other problems have arisen for me.  It really is the long posts (ones where the scroll bar appears)...it happens in typing them or modifying....the text box jumps to the middle not allowing me to see what I'm typing....thank goodness I know the code pretty well Wink....and the only other thing is that the glow turns out more a highlight...as mentioned above.

Tongue too bad I can't just send you my laptop or have you link to mine...for I have no clue what is causing it......I haven't downloaded anything else in months...and I have re-cleared, defraged, scanned, etc.....to no avail

Thank you so much for helping me!!! Kiss Kiss Kiss Kiss Kiss

I had that problem too. It drove me insane. I first noticed it at school last term when I got on here during free time. My school doesn't have IE8 though-they have Windows XP and IE7.
