OK, I'm stuck at getting the button to do anything. I have a link variable, {U_POST_REPLY_TOPIC}, being substituted for the likes of posting.php?mode=reply&f=9&t=1931, but putting this into "action" does nothing. (But formatting is easy: ‟class="button2"”.)

Clues welcomed please. (We are nearly there.)

Just in case you are not aware: The Reply button still looks terrible. A temporary non-ideal solution may be a good idea.

Ah, right, I see the problem. Try changing the method to "post".

(I did not realise that you could not send form data with a GET request via. a form whose target URL already included GET data (the ?mode=reply&f=9 &c.))

Thank you that works.

Code: Select all

<form action="{U_POST_REPLY_TOPIC}" method="post"><input class="button2" type="submit" value="{L_POST_REPLY}"></form>
Please would Blackberry and non-Blackberry users confirm happiness in this department.

Edit: non-Blackberry unhappiness: ⌘-click no longer opens the reply in a new tab.

I can confirm BlackBerry happiness with the button on the forum. Thank you.

Top Right of Home Page

I've just noticed that on the home page (in fact, on all pages) the area above the dividing red line, on the right hand side, has cut off some of the text and links. These now read:

I'm using 1024x780 as my screen resolution, in case this is the cause of this glitch.

Does look odd. Will investigate on return from the in-laws.

I'm using a different machine now, this one with 1280 x 800 resolution. All looks normal and neat now. Either the different screen resolution has made a difference or something has been tweaked.

It works perfectly on another machine with 1280 x 800 resolution.

Testing with Browser Shots suggests that it’s a problem with IE7. Further investigation suggests that it is a known bug, that has been fixed with the current IE8 beta. Browser Shots back that up, as it is fine with whatever version of IE8 they are using.
