It didnt show up like that on my end. This is the first I've heard of it. We are due for another update in a day or two so maybe that will fix it. If not ,let me know.

It seems to be all the mods and Hawk that have a stretched post, everyone else is normal. Some pages seem to freeze up for some reason too and this is the only place I have this happen.

I have experienced this also but not just with mods posts but a number of posts from members. I not only see long space between posts but sometimes the posts after a response are scrambled to the right side. I thought it was my browser, because when I use Firefox I don't have any problems.

I just use the I E that came standard on our machine that is less than one year old. This only started within the past few months. It's not a big deal I was just curious if it was a wide spread event.

I haven't seen it when using Opera ... it may just be one of those cases where the specific browser version and the website do not agree on some part of the HTML standard.

I got a PM regarding this and so I took a look at the html and I think I see the problem;

here is the html for members:

<li>
			<span class='ft'>Group:</span>
			<span class='fc'>Members</span>
		</li>


and here is what it is for mods:

<li>
			<span class='ft'>Group:</span>
			<span class='fc'><span style='color:green'>Moderators</span>
		</li>

The green span tag is not closed. It should be:

<li>
			<span class='ft'>Group:</span>
			<span class='fc'><span style='color:green'>Moderators</span></span>
		</li>

This won't cause problems in many browsers but it will cause problems in some. If Hawk or Roaddog could fix this it might fix the problem for those that are having it.

Edit: Same thing for the Admins, current code is:

<li>
			<span class='ft'>Group:</span>
			<span class='fc'><span style='color:red'>Root Admin</span>

		</li>

Should be:

<li>
			<span class='ft'>Group:</span>
			<span class='fc'><span style='color:red'>Root Admin</span></span>

I have found that most IPB forums work best with Google Chrome as a browser, and IE seems to be the worst browser for using on forums, from personal experience. I have also found the standard skin (found down at the bottom left pull down) IP.Board usually has the least glitches, so that is what I usually return to if I come upon any glitch, to see if the issue is skin related, browser related or just a local issue to my own computer.

I have had a lot of problems with the new IE9 not yet being compatible with a number of programs and web sites and even other browsers such as AOL which appears to be dependent or work in conjunction with on IE. For me Google Chrome, Opera and Firefox seem to work the best, yet I have found that Firefox will also have a few issues with IPB forums at times. Maybe try Google Chrome and I believe most will love it once they get used to it.

MS has a long history if incompatibility by design to try to force others out of business to preserve their dominance. They made a major effort to co-opt and cripple Java a few years ago so that it would go away but Sun Microsystems (now owned by Oracle) wouldn't roll over. The strategy doesn't seem to be as effective now with the growth of the Internet.

Mark, I am happy to see that someone can still interpret raw HTML. :D

Being picky, but from looking at this code, it is not a missing </span> it is an extra <span> that should not be there. Also <span> is one of the tags that cannot be nested, so a good lint should kick out errors for both the original and Mark's suggested correction.

My take on the correct coding.

<li>
			<span class='ft'>Group:</span>
			<span class='fc'>Members</span>
		</li>

<li>
			<span class='ft'>Group:</span>
			<span class='fc' style='color:green'>Moderators</span>
		</li>

<li>
			<span class='ft'>Group:</span>
			<span class='fc' style='color:red'>Root Admin</span>

		</li>

What happened is that the automatic code generator automatically prefixes a <span to the front of the style tag, when it should be a bare tag folloing other tags in the <span> tag. I just recently got a good taste of this while creating an epub of Winston Churchill's Coniston (the American, not W. S. Churchill :P ) Code generators are notorious for inserting errors in the code :)

RoadDog may want to check out Arachnophilia. Currently it is at V5.5 and has been around for many years now. From V5 on it has been OS neutral, as it is coded in Java. Cost is up to you as it is Careware.

I got a PM regarding this and so I took a look at the html and I think I see the problem;

here is the html for members:

<li>
			<span class='ft'>Group:</span>
			<span class='fc'>Members</span>

The green span tag is not closed. It should be:

<li>
			<span class='ft'>Group:</span>
			<span class='fc'><span style='color:green'>Moderators</span></span>
		</li>

This won't cause problems in many browsers but it will cause problems in some. If Hawk or Roaddog could fix this it might fix the problem for those that are having it.

SPAN can be nested just fine, especially when one is a class and the other is a style. It is not how I would do it but it shouldn't cause any issues as far as I know. If it can be done the way you present then that would be a better way of doing it but I was just presenting the simplest fix.

To add to my post above, it could also be the operating system in conjunction with the browser. As an example, I have an older Pentium 4 computer with XP and IE8 and when I have used that on IPB forums and clicked reply, the reply box comes out all the way down at the bottom of the page, so I have to scroll down to it and might not even know to look for it there if I did not know about the issue. With that computer the emoticons also do not work on IPB forums. I know there were a few other issues but I do not remember exactly what they were.

Some versions of AOL as a browser also has issues with forums.


Also Google Chrome and Firefox have an automatic spell check which underlines in red if a word might be spelled wrong, so that alone makes life a lot easier for me than IE, since I am not a great typist, :( but to each their own. Just trying to help.

class, name, style are all modifiers to a tag. They are stacked by placing them in a list inside the angle brackets after the tag label. The white space (blank, tab, cr etc.) is the delimiter. Nesting multiple tags so that each modifier can be alone in it's own set of brackets is inviting error when it comes time to manually edit. It also leaves the maintenance programmer in serious doubt as to whether the nesting is needed or if it is just to separate the modifiers. By not nesting you are giving the maintainer a little less of a problem

I have been hacking pre-existing code for almost 30 years now. I much prefer code that is cleanly formatted with a minimum of unnecessary clutter. I hate code-generator code with a purple passion. Bad formatting, dead code, strange constructions that are easy to build by algorithm and are a nightmare to read and other such problems. All of these are a nightmare (read wasted hours) for a maintenance programmer.

When using a generator to build a webpage at least run it through a 'beautifier' & lint filter so that the result is somewhat readable ... Meaningful comments are nice to, but I have learned that is usually expecting too much :P

Unnecessary nesting & dead code are 2 things I always remove from code I am editing. It makes bug search & future modifications so much simpler.
