Windows 7, Firefox 3.6, my Netbook:

Internet Explorer:

Cuts off text on the right and some buttons which makes long posts very hard to read. I imagine a few here would have netbooks and there are HEAPS of long posts on geekzone.

I imagine you already know about this though.

Regs: Like the look, one minor issue so far - buttons are not lining up quite correctlyy in IE8 (e.g. twitter button below).  Appears to be fine in Chrome.

wonky buttons


EDIT: looking at the source, it appears that the twitter and WWW buttons are missing a [style="vertical-align: text-bottom;"] directive that other buttons seem to be using.  Adding it to the twitter button throws the WWW button out of whack, adding it to the WWW button too appears to make them all line up just fine


quoting my own post because i edited it and then realised MF might not see the edited one!

So, users of Macs with larger (and higher resolution) displays might be unaffected by this problem. 


Yes this seems to be the case. My 24" iMac shows everything as it should.

I fired up my 13" MBP and most threads are fine, except for ones that appear to have long subjects with quite a few words in them. These don't show properly, it's almost like the subject line pushes the boxes containing peoples' posts to the right and off the screen so that they aren't readable. This is even with using Safari covering the entire screen.

Yep, that seems to be consistent with what I'm seeing here.

Yes, we filter HTML.

Ok, added "/" to all INPUT fields. Found those damn smartquotes - those were copy and paste from the original code provided, so changed that now.

Will try and add ALT to IMG later - already done a bit today, and most importantly add WIDTH and HEIGHT to most IMG in forums and frontpage.

Lots of changes in the last week or so - it should have improved page rendering a bit.

Mac ~ Safari:
Adblocker turned off, Click to Flash (Flash blocker) turned off, no change.
Manually dragging the window to cover most of my 15" desktop did put most of the site back in the correct place.

A full screen browser window is not a realistic option on a Mac so it does need fixing.

Not rude just tired of the Apple *sigh* comments and that the site was changed when it was known (from the comments) that it wouldn't work in Safari with a normal sized window.

And as noted things will be looked at. People around here have been through other changes before and know we don't leave those things behind.

Just putting a word in for mobile safari also as I use the full version on my iPod. Am getting the same results as those on the full version of safari. Design looks great and look forward to it working properly soon.

Whoa - this is different...

I like it!!

A suggestion I'd make for consideration is having the "Next" and "Previous" links in multi-page threads larger so they're more obvious.

Would it be an idea to use a chrome frame so it can work in safari? http://googlesystem.blogspot.com/2009/09/chrome-frame-not-just-for-internet.html

And I like the change.

Do we get the five check-list items when in the full editor every time?

In fact, I would go further and ask that the "Next" and "Previous" links should be at the TOP of the page as well as the bottom.  Most other forums provide the links in both places; Geekzone is about the only one I use frequently which doesn't.  It saves having to scroll right to the bottom of the page before being able to go to the Next/Previous page in the thread, so it seems like an obvious improvement which could be made -- hopefully without too much difficulty Undecided

Love the sleekness of it and that it's still "elastic". If only other websites could even do half as well.

It loads a LOT quicker for me now that aptimise spriting thing is not being used. I always used to have that stupid 1x1 image foul things up when using other pc's too.


It's broken in my browser too but it's a customized variant of firefox 2.0 and is being replaced so don't worry about it.

Actually one thing, could the numbers down the bottom be made just slightly larger? I find them often impossible to select using Symbian phones.

Well, I have to say, the forums are MUCH snappier.

Still not sure if I like the Font's and sizes used in the forum list.. but I think it's just because it's different from before.

Definitely an upgrade over all, though. Good work!
