New Post text/ icon....

Post by mtridersclb » Sat Jan 17, 2009 7:38 pm

Newbie here.

In Subsilver2, In between the icon that goes orange when theres a new post, and the forum headr, it says in just text 'no new posts' or 'new posts'.

In Firefox this is visible but in IE it shows as a broken image (missing).

I dont want it anyway as the ion shows this information. How do I identify what it is and can I then delete it from the template?

I have the aptitude for all this but am learning so use basic language please!!

Thanks

When you made your forums, your browser tried to help you out by autofilling your username in the forum image field.
As that's not actually an image, you get a broken icon.

manage forums
click the green cog next to each one
Remove your username from that field.

thanks for that but it doesnt appear to work plus when i go back to the edit page, its autofilled again. btw I think Im using Fantastico, it was an option open to me from my hosting provider - is that an issue/ restraint?

and why would the text appear on firefox but not IE?

Thanks

It's your browser. We see it all the time.

Firefox and IE display the missing image differently.

Try using a different browser to edit out that information. Or see if there's an option to turn off autofill in the browser options.

brilian Kevin thank you, you are absolutely right, I now edit in IE as it doesnt autofil.

BUT

I still want rid of that text so any idea as to the first part of the question?.....

As I said, that text is from your username being in the forum image field of the forum editing page.

Having followed your advice on the autofil, the image field is now blank but it still shows that text
