  • Cannot play ch 9 video on ipad ?

    Which video in particular? It should work.. and I don't think anything has changed in the last few weeks anyway.

  • When will the buggy comment control be fixed ?

    @Mr Crash: Yeah, the box height thing isn't something we'll probably fix/change at least any time soon since it doesn't prevent people from using the site. The focus issue is for sure what we're trying to fix. You're the first I've heard with any issues in Firefox though - what happens in the latest official version for you? Is it the focus issue like IE9 RC?


    @spivonious: Yep, exactly what I saw earlier on IE9 RC.

  • Windows/​Metro concepts

    @Antonioerre: Now that is very cool!

  • Strange text box focus.

    Yep, we use TinyMCE for our text editing control on these pages and it seems to not play nicely with IE9 RC at all. We're seeing all of the same issues - focus changing unpredictably, that format dropdown appearing, etc. We are working on it and hopefully will figure out what the issue is very soon.

  • so screwed, stupid create a profile

    Yikes.. yeah, sounds like a cookie problem. Clear your cookies! Smiley We've found that IE9 tends to cache things that it shouldn't and hold onto things even when you have cleared your cache so if that doesn't work go to Internet Options -> Browsing History -> Settings -> View Files -> and delete everything in that Temporary Internet Files folder.   

  • Force login

    Yeah, it shouldn't do that. I would suggest clearing your cookies. It sounds like maybe LiveID got in a weird state somehow?

  • When will the buggy comment control be fixed ?

    Yes, we care! Smiley We've been in contact with TinyMCE and are trying on our own to make it work with IE9 RC. It's quite a task from what I understand (I'm not working on it personally) but we are as bothered as you that it isn't working. Part of the problem is that it IS a third party control and we're trying to figure out if we should fix it on our own or if there is an update coming. We got IE9 RC at the same time as everyone else so we're working hard to fix bugs as we see them.

    Most of the complaints that I've heard are that it doesn't work well in IE9 RC (which I can verify as that is what I'm using right now and it's focusing all over the darn place while I'm typing!) and was also buggy in Beta. There's also an annoying "feature" in Chrome where it expands the height of the box in strange ways. If you could let us know what other browsers (and version) it is being buggy in, that would help.

  • Sneak Peek

    @CKurt: We will probably be doing some modifications to the player skin. The one that was default for the smf player was very clunky (in my opinion) so Duncan knocked it down a little bit and made it so the controls would actually go away when you moused off of them just to make it more presentable but we haven't really gone any farther than that - yet.

  • Sneak Peek

    @CKurt: Regarding your issue with fullscreen on the new player, are you using IE9 beta or a different browser?

  • TV Series Thread

    @androidi: No, you're not the only one! I too watch Survivor, The Amazing Race and (embarrassing I know) Big Brother.
