     OP - December 11, 2008, 11:55 AM

    I thought we could have a thread for smaller tech questions? (sorry, if there already is one...)

    here?s mine: why do I get ?, when I press the apostrophe?? That?s why my posts appear funny... all looks okay, until I submit the post, then the apostrophe changes to question mark.

    Yeah I've noticed that happening and I'm not sure of the cause. I suppose I should track it down.

    ETA: As you can see it doesn't affect everyone's posts.

    Nice one Os - how do we update them (I could not see the edit tool)?

    Also any thoughts on the below (in reference to Hassan's videos http://www.councilofexmuslims.com/index.php?topic=5483.0) ?

    Mods - is that ok by you? Also do we have the disk space to save them there in their entirety, rather than simply a youtube link, in case some mullah working their decides to delete them..


    Do you think we can save Hassans videos in the same area? Any thought mods?

    Not all of us are comfortable infront of a camera, if there are others who want to do some videos then they are more than welcome to.

    Well we did have his vids linked but then he took offense to some idiots and took all his vids offline.  grin12
    If he's going to leave them online I'm perfectly happy to see them linked off our front page. Same for vids made by several other people. I do think however that hosting them directly off our server doesn't make sense as long as YouTube is continuing to host them. Vids run up server loads quite a bit. I do like the idea of storing copies of them in case they are needed due to pressure on YouTube, but TBH they could be stored on YouTube's server in another account and made public if necessary. whistling2

    Of course there can also be backups offline in case all YouTube accounts are messed with or our server crashes.

    Oh and the other thing I want to do when we get a gallery of vids and pics hooked up is to enable our site for Cooliris. I mentioned it in this thread: http://www.councilofexmuslims.com/index.php?topic=5542.msg140610#msg140610

    Setting it up isn't that hard and what it means is that anyone who has Cooliris installed on their browser can hover over a pic or vid and click the Cooliris icon that appears. They then get the whole lot as a scrollable gallery, and can switch from that view to a normal screen as it suits them. It's a great option and is compatible with Firefox, Flock, Internet Explorer and the Mac version of Safari.

    Their main site is here: CoolIris - Discover More. It's worth checking it out. Wink

    I have just upgraded to Internet Explorer 8.0, and its playing with my view of this foru.  Sometimes words get bigger, and overlap the next sentence.  The compatiability button doesnt fix it either - just saying this forum has been designed for use with older browsers.

    Are you on IE8?  Also strange things are happening - when I type the words are invisible then they suddenly appear - its happening now.

    P.S  Whats with the carnival look?

    No, I'm on FireFox 2.  I get the typing thing sometimes as well. 

    I found the carnival look while looking for suggestions for MSingh's new avatar, (I googled "pink fairy" lol), and she goes with the Outrageous theme, so I nabbed her.

    Weird. I've never noticed any of those things happening. I use Firefox 3.5 mainly but used to run Firefox 3 and Opera.

    Fireofx 2 is old and known to be a bit buggy. IE8 is a Microsoft browser. Go figure.

    No, it's not a real browser. IE8 is actually a browser-downloader. You use it in order to download Firefox, Opera or what have you.  grin12

    Its still has three times more usage than the most pop browser at the mo.

    As of Q4, 2008, IE has 68.15% usage, Mozilla 21.34%, Safari 7.93% and Chrome 1.04%, according to Net Applications.

    Get some more up to date figures. Wink  http://www.w3counter.com/globalstats.php

    Anyway yes I know IE has considerable market share. This is because it can force market share, not because it is particularly good in any way.

    The software we use (SMF 1.1.x) was released when IE7 was the latest version. There have been considerable changes (some of them even for the better) in IE8 so glitches are possible. Note that if Microsoft had released their browsers with W3 standards support like every other browser has had for years then there would be no problem, so it's easy to see who is at fault here. Wink

    As I mentioned though I did used to run Firefox 2 and had no problems with it, and since Cheetah is seeing the same problem you are seeing it may not be browser-specific and it may be impossible to reproduce for testing. I'll look into it over the next day or two.

    Ok, I am now horribly infested with IE8 and doing some test posts. So far everything appears to be normal. Text is at the correct size and the words are appearing as I type them.

    Have you got a brojen compatibility view on the right hand side of the address bar?  When you type quickly  in quick reply box, do the characters disappear momentarily?

    Firefox 2 seems normal as well, at least at the moment. 

    ETA: Cheetah, do yourself a favour and try Firefox 3.5 RC1. It completely murders 2 for speed. It even leaves 3 in the dust, plus it supports shit that IE is still only dreaming about (as does Opera 10). I've been usng it for a while now and it seems free of bugs.
