Ashraf 

As for width problems with the forum: Ya… the script I am using for my forums is still in the "baby" stages and forum width (i.e. text/boxes being cut off) is one of the problems. However, The textbox is not truncated for us right now. Your resolution shouldn't be a problem because dotTech is built for 1024x768.

That is correct.

Do we have a specific thread for "Glitches"?

Ashraf 

Can you try and see if the problem occurs in a different browser?

~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ 

Browsers currently running on my system, (XpPro Sp3) and used for this test:

FF 3.6

Chrome 4.0.249.78 (36714)

IE 7.0.5730.13

After testing I found that the truncated effect only occurs when I'm using FF 3.6.

The effect does not manifest itself when using the other two.

But…..I found another anomaly while testing:

When logging-in to dotTech forum, using IE7 or FF3.6. No matter if I typed or pasted the password the entry box would immediately turn into a scroll slider.

On one ocassion I was immediatly sent to a dottech log-in page

This did not happen while using Chrome.

Thanks for the detailed info. These forums are buggy; I am indeed thinking about switching.

As for the login problem: Don't login via the forum. Login via the "login" bottom at the very top right of the website.

What will happen to the old forums?  Will all the posts disappear?  Or will you somehow transfer them?  Or will they.. or.. or…

Ok, one last "or":  Or will they be at a URL like dottech.org/forums-old?

Oh, the site that was :(

I would recommend new forums, these are very limited. Like today I wanted to search for a post I made a while ago, but there was no feature to search a user's posts. I thought that was pretty standard in a forum. I also cant figure out how to change my avatar or sig, or is that admin only?
