MAC Users/PC Users

I use a PC to view the web, but lately I have been viewing the forum from my sister's MAC laptop and noticed that it looks a bit different. Furthermore, some options that I was used to when viewing it on my PC are now missing. So I thought I see if there were any other MAC oddities.

I've attached a screen capture of the first page when I select forums. On my PC I would get an option to view posts from the last 24 hours, but now my only option seems to be to select NEW POSTS.

So first, could a PC user attach a screen shot of their view of the site once they select forums.

Second, I am wondering if there are any other quirks out there. So MAC users if you are experiencing any problems or wish the site had a certain function, don't forget to ask. We want the site to be as user friendly as possible.

THANKS

~T

Thanks Gary!

That's how I am used to seeing the forum. I really miss the quick links option as well as the pull down options under RetouchPro for quickly linking to the various forums. It makes it much easier to navigate the web site. I must admit I am curious why the views are so different between the MAC and PC.

Not that it solves the underlying compatability issue, but here are (most of) the quick links (perhaps you could bookmark this thread?):

It looks like you're not getting any of the javascript functions. Is javascript turned on? Which browser is that, have you tried Firefox?

Leah,
Thanks for all the links! They will make surfing easier! I do hope to be back on my PC in a week.

Doug,
I'll check on the javascript. The floating sige navigation does show...is that run by javascript?

Thanks Kiska!
The screen shot I posted was a MAC using Explorer 5.2

Doug,

I didn't see anything on javascript in the explorer preferences, but "scripting" is enabled.

This helpful information comes from the support forum for this forum software:

"MSIE 5.2 for mac does not have proper support for most of the vBulletin 3 options"

Translation: our software uses some DHTML features that did not exist when IE5.2 was released, so it doesn't know how to handle them. I believe IE for Mac has been abandoned, so you might want to use Safari or Firefox.

Well luckily I will be back on my PC next week, but it might be useful information to post on the intro screen to help other MAC users.
