Page is jumping about.
« on: August 19, 2009, 06:44:39 am »
 Whenever I reply to a post after a certain amount of space the page starts jumping about. I am a total technophobe and hope someone can understand what I am talking about!

 How do I fix it? I will beed it expained very sloooooooooooooooooooowly as I am a tad backward with computers.

 Thanks,

Emma xxx

I'm going to assume that your computer has recently updated its browser to Internet Explorer 8. 

To the right of the address bar (where you enter website names) there should be a button that looks like a broken page.  This is called the compatibility view button, try pressing that to see if fixes your problem.

I've borrowed this image from a reply by ~emmalou~ in another thread regarding this, it shows the buttons location.

 Thanks Gareth.  :)

Not sure what we have on our 'puter...DH's department.  :-[


 Going to check it ok now.

 Blah, blah, blah,

Blah, blah, blah,


Blah, blah, blah,



Blah, blah, blah


Blah, blah, blah


OK seems to be fine now.  :)

 Do I need to click on that thingy every time I post or do I just do it once?

 Thanks again,

It should remember your choice for the website.  I don't use IE so I don't know how the compatibility view works long term :)

I've found that once you click it for a website it usually remembers it. 
I've found a couple that don't, but pretty much all my "regular" pages do. 

BW does and that, frankly, is all that matters! :P
