    Default Quick Reply

    Recently upgraded to Internet Explorer 8 on a home system.

    When I click on the Quick Reply icon on the bottom right in a thread. I'm getting a Quick Quote from whatever post I happen to click it from.

    Cleared cache and no change. Checked it on another system running IE 7. Works fine.

    Problem with IE 8 and vBulletin code?

    No benefit really, but I use it a lot when not quoting anyone.

    IE8 is an economy-sized bucket of suck.

    I'll send you a bill for the mod consulting on using the common software functions...

    It's definately something with IE 8... If I turn on the Compatability View in Tools which converts it back to IE 7 when viewing specific sites. Everything works fine. The tool will remember this site and invoke it every time I return... nice feature for us old farts...

    Here's a little video thing I found on Compatability View...

    http://www.5min.com/Video/How-to-Use...n-IE8-89998718

    Queue up Top Timmy to get this place upgraded for IE 8.

    One other observation... In native IE 8 the pop-up blocker effectively blocks your every 12 hour load of a pop-under advertising when revisiting the site.

    In Compatability View... the Pop-Unders are back.

    I guess it's safe to say IE 8 sucks.

    Tim does pictures, not coding.

    And I'm sure vBulletin has these sites working well for IE 8, but I haven't upgraded in a long time because the board has been so stable. So I hesitate to revisit that.

    Been using IE 8 for quite a while and the Links is about the only forum that hasn't given me an issue with it.

    I'm having the same issue, every time I use quick reply, it includes the last person's post.
    Life may not be the party we hoped for, but while we are here we might as well dance.

    Live simply. Love generously. Care deeply. Speak kindly.

    Anybody else tried Google Chrome? I've been using it for about a week now and I think it's definitely less problematic than IE8.
    It seems to be very bare-bones, but that's part of its appeal.

    My IE8 doesn't like The Onion, which is a real deal-breaker for me.
