Wait... so you mean the white "box" that you type messages in when doing a post like this one?

Where there are these above the box:
 :) :wink: ;D >:( :( :o 8) ??? ::) :P :-[ :-X :- :-* :'( :shifty: :timbits: :cobra: :spidey:


?????????

Yes, we are talking about that box.

Because, that's normal if it scrolls UP while you're making a bigger post... just a quick reply, nothing should go wrong.


THIS LINE HERE, is where things start to scroll up by one line.
Now another line.
And so on.

The message block this board format uses is pre-defined and regardless how much bigger I made it, it would still move if you typed more content than the space would provide.
It's a part of the board.

If you guys are talking about something completely different, then you need to describe it better.

I will try describing it better with my limited non-GI Joe English dictionnary... When we type a longer message, yes it is normal that the scrolling bar appears so we can move from the top of our message to the bottom of it. But, the problem here is when we are typing, we don't see what we are typing. The scrolling bar keep going up (while we are at the bottom of the message). When we type, the scrolling bar should go down, following what we are writting.

Mike, try to quote my message and wrtite something. You will see (or in fact won't see what you are typing).

i know exactly what your talking about martin, if you have internet explorer 8 by the address bar their will be a little link that looks like a peice of paper ripped in half, when you are having the scrolling problem, click on the link that looks like ripped paper, and it will fix the problem, if you dont have internet explorer 8 upgrade to it.

follow the link :
http://www.microsoft.com/windows/intern ... asier.aspx

then on life side click: Compatibility View (it will explain everything)

it is a compatibility issue, nothing to do with joecanuck, i have that problem to sometimes, but i have a little icon i can click on and it fixes the problem,

see here:

http://www.microsoft.com/windows/intern ... asier.aspx

I just read your last post... and you made my day!!! The link you post didn't lead to the right page. I click on "compatibility" in the left menu and I red this:

Quote
Compatibility View
Internet Explorer 8 is a new release and some websites may not yet be ready for the new browser. Click the Compatibility View toolbar button to display the website as viewed in Internet Explorer 7, which will correct display problems like misaligned text, images, or text boxes. This option is on a per site basis and all other sites will continue to display with Internet Explorer 8 functionality. When you click on the Compatibility View button for a site, you don’t need to do it again as the next time you visit that site the browser will show it in compatibility mode. If for some reason you’d like to go back to browsing with Internet Explorer 8 functionality on that site, simply click the Compatibility View button again.

So, JoeCanuck is not IE8 friendly. Yes, that ripped sheet at the top (beside my address bar) fixed my problem. It was really annoying.

Thanks so much!!

Martin

Hmm... Joecanuck must think IE is owned by a Company that supports Cobra... thus, won't make things easy for you all.

It's the only logical solution, really.

When you reply, it is the box in which you enter your text.

So it's not a "quick reply" box... it's the regular "Reply" box. On YoJoe, there is a quick reply box at the bottom of each thread, but I don't see this here.

Sundance mus be on jet lag  ;D

I've had the same problem in the past. I now use Google Chrome. Much better the I.E. and has a built in spell check.
