I have just wasted 5 minutes trying to find if this problem has been already reported, but finally gave up.


The "quote last message" button in the box for posting replies works perfectly in my Mac/Firefox 2, but does absolutely nothing in my Vista/Explorer 7. Anyone else?

IE7 on XPSP3. No, it didn't work for me either, until I clicked the Insert button (>>) and selected Quote. Then I could click the Quote Previous Message button and your post appeared below the empty quote ...

In IE7 just eneter a blank space before trying to hit the quote button. It will work then.

I reported this back when they had the test forums going, but it was never fixed.

Just for fun, I was going to give 5 points to each of you, as I couldn't give 10 to both, but I clicked on a wrong button and gave Ilhund 10, so Bob got just 5. Sorry, although in my opinion this is just a childish game.

Thanks Bob. Works in IE8/Vista too. That's been bugging me since I was forced to come here when NNTP died.

Appreciate the tip.

Just a thought, but maybe this info could be added to a FAQ somewhere?

Adobe demonstrate that they're listening and responding to issues raised in these forums? That would be nice to see

I guess I should take that to mean seven seconds? But if you measure seconds that way, do you have to use your fingers to keep count of the "mississippis"? I ask because, at least here, we measure seconds using numbers with long names, say the equivalent to "a hundred and one, a hundred and two, ..." (I haven't tried if this works in English starting from 100, but it does work in Spanish starting from 50: "cincuenta y uno, cincuenta y dos, ...").


In any case, at the speeds I got, it was quite a lot longer that than, perhaps some 5 times longer. And again, I'm not counting the time it took me to find that thread, which had drifted quite a long way down -I discovered too late that there is a direct link to it in the Subforums sidebar...

lol. Works in FIREFOX but not in IE?

haha..

Yeah I've seen the same thing on IE.

Of course, the UI is so slow that maybe the clicks didn't register or something. rofl

Yea, takes me 2 seconds of hovering over the "post message" button before it highlights so I know the click will go through...lol.

These forums are a pathetic joke, guys.

When I tried to find to which of my messages in this thread you were replying, by using the "Go to message" button (my name in the first line of your message), I found that this button also doesn't work in Explorer, but it dos work in Firefox...

Also: smilies inserted are not shown in Explorer in this box, although they do show in messages. More simply: I will not see the smiley I inserted in the previous line until I post this message. And they do show in Firefox!

So some idiot developers at Jive used Hackfox crapware for development, and testing, and that was it?  Is that what happened?

Job poorly done! (?)

What's going on here?  If you're going to use alternative browsers, at least use Opera or Safari. But my lord, basic stuff not working in IE? What are they thinking?

IE 8 will be the first IE to be w3C Standards compatible. which means all the non-Standrd stuff such as self-healing (automatically inserting  opening and closing tags a such) does not work with these forums.

For Years MS was on the Consortium Board , Jst to find out the standards so that they could make it difficult for website geared to MS Windows, products couldn't be view any Browser other Than IE.

NOw IE * they have finally decided they have just been shooting their own foot and decide to make it w#c conpatible which means any pages written of MS specific sites can viewed with any Browser. even Safari, Seamonkey, FireFox, Opera, OmniWeb, iCab You name it, even Konquerer.
