Bug on nuxified.org

At my office, I tested the new, revamped nuxified.org with IE 6 (IE 6.0.2900.2180.xpsp_sp2_gdr.050301-1519) and have also tested with Firefox from Ubuntu's stable package set (v. 1.0.8, unfortunately). I found that there's a bug on IE 6 where the tiny "GNU/Linux", *BSD, OpenSOlaris, and Other? links are displaying downwards on the screen instead of across. It's really messing the look of the site up pretty bad. Perhaps there's an IE 6-specific bug in your CSS with the way you're using the DIV tag?

However, one may say, "Who cares? If you're trying to use IE to get to a Linux site for tech support, then you're a loser, anyway!"

Your call.

Hmm that's exactly the thing

Hmm that's exactly the thing I asked about last night on IRC. My question specifically was if IE supports CSS float property. The answers were that it does, but not entirely correct, and with position: relative; .

The thing is I don't have IE anywhere handy. I use exclusively GNU/Linux and Free Software here and IE doesn't work on even if I wanted to install for a quick test...

Maybe it should go without position: relative; afterall..

If you could provide a screenshot that might be useful to see what exactly does it do...

Yeah I know. Smiling I think a_thing meant that the TinyMCE doesn't close break tags in its output.

That's why maybe its best to use normal post form by default instead of TinyMCE, but it might be possible to clean up TinyMCE output as well..

nxfd.o was not very friendly

nxfd.o was not very friendly back in the phpBB day. I think it would even maybe be better to keep it this way. I think it is 6 odd months till IE7 is out. They are beta testing currently...or so they keep asking me for bug reports...

So maybe worth a wait.

more friendly now

I think it is actually more friendly now than it was when we were on phpbb. Smiling

So definitely some improvements have been made. There is also a possibility that what supermike saw was when I was changing headers and didn't adjust those OS links yet, so they were off key. It might be fine now.

By that I meant the "GNU/Linux *BSD..." don't have <br/>'s between them so it should all be horizontal on one line, not vertical like supermike described.

Oh I see a_thing. Yes, it

Oh I see a_thing. Yes, it should be horizontal. I think what he meant was that it wasn't properly placed over the header, but lower not matching the header properly...
