[Edited to add:  This should be resolved as of 04/20/10.  Please read more here:  http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=345053.0 -- sweets4ever]

Hi everyone!

Since yesterday, I have had problems on craftster while trying to post.
When typing (on longer posts), it jumps to the middle of the post text, and I am unable to view the bottom and see what I am typing.  It "bounces" from the bottom to middle making it so difficult to post new topics, replies, and modifications.

Further, I have noticed that when glow is used, it doesn't appear glowing but rather like highlighting (a solid block of color around the text).

FYI: I am using internet explorer8 (8.0.6001.18702IC).  My flash is up to date.  No viruses or spyware.  Cache cleared.  Let me know what else might be useful.  

Hopefully I explained that well enough. Undecided

HELP!!! Cry
Thank you for any help.



Solution insert:
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

Hi there!  Did you just upgrade to IE 8 yesterday?  The last time I tried to install it (maybe a month ago?) it was still in the beta stage and quite a few sites (Craftster included) were not compatible with it at the time.  Trying to rule that out as a possibility.

No...I installed it on Monday.  I've been on craftster everyday, but my problems just started yesterday (I was hoping it would disappear with the April Fool's macrame fun).  And sadly this is the only site that is causing me probs.  My yahoo suggested the upgrade and no mention of it being beta.....But I would definitely downgrade if it is causing my probs; it is just not worth messing with craftster!

I actually just upgraded to see if I could reproduce the same issues you're having.  No luck yet, but I've only been browsing for a few moments.  Don't give up just yet!

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

Do you use Quick Reply or the standard reply box?

Okay I'm a dork Undecided....Where/what is quick reply?
I use the reply button/tab/whatever that is technically.
I did discover when I modified using the paper&pencil icon on my post the jumpy thing didn't occur.

No problem at all!

If you were using Quick Reply, you would see it at the very bottom of the screen.  If you want to check it out, My Craftster > My Profile > Look and Layout Preferences -- Use quick reply on topic display: "show, on by default"

Once you enable it, it will turn on a Quick Reply box at the bottom of each thread page.  It's pretty neat and VERY fast, if you reply a lot like I do.  You can just type your reply there and click post (press Alt+S) and your post is done.

PS -- still testing for you!  So sorry for the long process on this.

ooooooo...I am off to test that right now. Cool

And don't fret about the "long process". 
As long as I can get on craftster, I am all sorts of good. Grin

I'm having the same problem as pinkleo:  typing longer posts is impossible because the screen is all squirley and seems to be stuck on the last line of the text box (the one before the scroll bar shows up).  Trying to respond to swap questionnaires is very aggravating.  I can scroll down and see the "overflow" text, but I can't see what I'm typing as I'm typing it. 

I'm using IE 8.0.6001.18783, and I think I understand that Craftster is not compatible with IE 8.0.  Is that still the case?
