Software Update Complete

Our website now totally Validates. This means it is compliant with the current web standards. Also, there are so many Browsers out there that are being given away for FREE, there is no way to make a website with this complexity work on all browsers.

The key is to use a Browser that complies with the current standards of writing web site code. You would think the big name companies would be the most compliant, but that is not the case. Big companies want to write their own rules and force everyone else to comply with them. They think this will help them maintain market share. The World Internet Consortium has decided to set the standards.

I have hired programmers from three companies in addition to my work to try to resolve all the issues. The last one I hired is in Austrailia and is considered the master. He did in fact fix the website software to totally test 100% compliant.

The issues some of you are having seem to come from Old Mac IE Browsers prior to OS X, AOL & Netscape Browsers which have many known issues, and some Windows IE Browsers. Even so, I think we have Windows IE Browsers working quite well now.

This has been the most difficult update we have had. I have spent several hundred dollars fixing the software and feel it is as good as resources will allow us to go. There are a couple of things the Moderators want me to do, but they are functionality, not code, related.

If you are still having problems, please down load and try Firefox for either Mac or PC. The Mozilla software engineers have left Netscape, AOL, and have created Firefox. They are keeping it current. You will be amazed at how fast and fun it is to use. It also has some wonderful security built into it. (No, I do not have Firefox stock.)

Lastly, the Skin I named 2.2.0-Mac07 is the latest and greatest Skin and is corrected for both Mac & Windows users.

I hope this helps,
Mike

I dearly love this forum site and all that it has to offer, it used to be the best of the bunch and I've met some great people through it. BUT, it isn't fun any more. Last week it seemed OK for a few days but then went wacko again. When I can't navigate without being constantly frustrated, then why bother. This is only one of several completely different types of forum that I visit [Photography, boler, gardening, canoe building, making musical instruments, carving and a couple of others] and the ONLY one causing a problem navigating. I'm not going to reconfigure my computer to suit one. I may check in once in a while to see what's happening and if you have changed anything for the positive, Mabee we'll meet again in the spring. Meantime I wish everyone a safe and happy holiday season.
Yours in trailering, Jim

When you're high strung like James and I ( sorry James) These little things make you crazy.

It has also driven me nuts for some time. Today I noticed it was trying to go to res://ieframe.dll/dnserror.htm during one of those clicks to go back.
I researched it a bit and found:

<blockquote><span style="font-size:12pt;line-height:100%">Switch off "Show friendly HTTP errors messages" in Internet Options, Advanced. </span>

<span style="font-size:12pt;line-height:100%">I use IE 7</span>

<span style="font-size:12pt;line-height:100%">I gave it a shot an Viola! SO far so good.</span>

Oh sweet it still works. I am thinking this Manhatten I started drinking may have helped.
I should get another one, then O may solve all the world's problems.

If only I could just take my camper out.

My wife solved that issue with a “click and hold” the back button a little longer.

I need three bits of information with every problem posted.
  1. Computer - Mac or Windows?
  2. Operating system and version?
  3. Browser and version?

Might I make a suggest to all, and especially those that are having troubles with latest updates.
Start by going to first forum page http://www.fiberglassrv.com/board/
At the bottom of the page, right hand side is a thing that say "Delete cookies set by this board". Click on that to clear out all the old cookies.

Then hit your browser's refresh/reload button.

NOTE: you'll have to reenter your user name and password.

Sometimes old cookies will mess with things in negative manner. It's worth a try anyway.
