Netscape 4.7 and posts with multiple images.

Post by OddDuckCarter » Tue Apr 23, 2002 3:14 pm

My users are reporting a problem with posts that contain multiple images. For instance, this post on my forums.

Netscape 4.7 users complain the first image covers up the remaining. Is this a known issue? Any work-arounds?

Yes, known. Work-around: don't let your users use NS 4.7 ;)

Really though, you might be SOL in this case. I don't know of any way to correct this except have a better browser (or take away the images that cause the problem).

Sorry. (Someone, correct me if I am wrong!!)

I have had this issue in three days two times. Your users are required to upgrade their browsers, it's that simple!

I found a simple solution to this problem (which has been plaguing me for some time). It should have been written this way in the first place (you'll notice that some of the other tags use the same technique).

The span tag is what messes everything up. The idea is to close the span tag before the image display and reset it afterward. So open:

bbcode.tpl

Go to line 56.

Replace this line:

Code: Select all

 <!-- BEGIN img --><img src="{URL}" border="0" /><!-- END img -->
With this line:

Code: Select all

  <!-- BEGIN img --></span><img src="{URL}" border="0" /><span class="postbody"><!-- END img -->
Hope this helps. It does NO GOOD to tell some people to upgrade their browsers -- they just do not have the computer that will support it. Especially true of old Mac users.
