Just posted a response in Modifications re:Springs and had a problem in the posting window. When the post got too long the typed text wouldn't show in the bottom of the window. I could scroll down to see the end of the typing, but as soon as I began to type again the window jumped up to the previous text, hiding the current typing. I then went and typed the entire post in MS Word, then copied and pasted it into the post area. Though you might like to look into this. Wave

Ah, this has to do with Windows Explorer and how it interacts with the Simple Machines Forum, which is what this site is. I don't know whose fault it is, but I know the fix: Use Compatibility View from IE.

For  those who might have this issue and want to know the process: Go to your IE menu bar and go to Tools/ and then check 'Compatibility View'. This fixes this problem on all SMF sites (I had this problem on another forum too). I imagine this bug might be fixed in version 2.0 which is in beta now (if it's an SMF issue).

Also, if you get a timeout error when posting, just backspace and re-submit and it'll work. That'll be fixed in v2.0 as well. On long posts, I do a quick CTRL-A, CTRL-C just to save all my typing just in case.

If the site gets big enough I might switch to VBulletin, but SMF is pretty good and it's free, plus that aforementioned upgrade is coming soon.  Type

Thanks Stevie! Hey by the way, I was in Ireland recently and I render a Nissan Micra. Great little car, but I really wanted a smart. I saw a smart roadster there and lost my mother-scratchin' mind!

I thought of you and our UK friends when I was over there. Ireland was awesome btw....got to visit the Guinness storehouse where I had my first Guinness! (You're in Scotland still right?).

Oh nice. I thought the Micra was a great little car to drive.
