Fan in action

I have been modelling the ocportal to what I want for my site. I do like it very much. I don't have any programming background but I do like to muddle through. Wavell Videos

Welcome aboard, batlady.

Visited your page. It's coming along.

Darn IE8 - had to use compatibility mode - but that is the same for all ocPortal-driven sites, mine included.

Keep on truckin'!

Take my advice. I'm not using it!

I just checked and it was okay for me. Could you tell me if you're using the final IE8, and what problem compatibility view avoided? Thanks.

  • If so, please let others know about ocPortal whenever you see the opportunity.
  • If my reply is too Vulcan or expressed too much in business-strategy terms, and not particularly personal, I apologise. As a company & project maintainer, time is very limited to me, so usually when I write a reply I try and make it generic advice to all readers. I'm also naturally a joined-up thinker, so I always express my thoughts in combined business and technical terms. I recognise not everyone likes that, don't let my Vulcan-thinking stop you enjoying ocPortal on fun personal projects.
  • If my response can inspire a community tutorial, that's a great way of giving back to the project as a user.

[ From “I am new too” ]

1. IE8 final.
2. Pictures=100000000 words …





Worth mentioning that I am still using v3.2.10, but that only applies to how my site is viewed in IE8. It doesn't explain the differences for 'Wavell', who I assume is using the latest release.

Take my advice. I'm not using it!

Hi,

I had a look at your site batlady to see if it was an ocp problem.
Turned out it was an IE7 bug making it shown 'correctly' - and does look wrong on non-compat IE8 and Firefox.

To fix one option is to move the film strip bg from global_top to the log img tag itself, and add a bit of padding to the bottom so the full bg height can show.
Currently the global_zones black bg is masking the global_top film strip bg completely.
