Woah... in Firefox it looks like... shroomy. Very cool indeed.

IE7 beta 3 looks good, apart from the HTML comments box which is stretched out vertically. Chiefe had a fix for that.

The comments box doesn't show up in FF for some reason.

only ever tested it in Opera...
that'll teach me.

comments box shows up for me in firefox 1.5.0.4 (Ubuntu Dabber, amd64)

...
i wonder what's different in yours.. what version you running?

I can send you a screenshot of the full page in Internet Explorer. You can email me freitasm at this domain and I will reply with the screenshot.

As for Juha's comments, the TinyMCE control is only loaded for registered users, to prevent URL spam. The icons need to be "inline". Check chiefies blog for the tag to use.

I'm using the latest FF 1.5.0.6 on Windaz.

From Chiefie's blog:

div.miniicons img {
display:inline;
border:1px dotted #beace0;
padding:5px;

Juha, you have to be logged in to see the RTF editor. And those are the tags for the social network icons, not the editor...

Hmmm. I can't find the AdSense block... I'd like that to remain, since this is the only way we can leave the blog tool free.

Author's note by taniwha, on 5-Aug-2006 15:08

I will add options for your own colours for AdSense soon.

Thanks for the screenshow Frietasm... it's exactly the same as opera, excepting the Comments editor - - looking for a solution to that. i'm now searching Chiefie's blog

looks fantastic in IE7/Vista except the comments toolbar.


Author's note by taniwha, on 5-Aug-2006 19:11

can someone rip the markup for the comments in IE7??? Then i'll know what to style...


Comment by bradstewart, on 6-Aug-2006 15:38

<p><textarea name="guestcomment" rows='15' cols='50'></textarea></p>

<p><input type=submit class=cmd name="action" value='Send'></p>

Something like this?

so, there's no class on the text area.. and no special div around it?
