Try clearing all your cookies and temporary internet files, see if that helps

Without being there to see it, I don't think I could be much help. There are plenty of guys on here who might be able to help you. Sorry

There ya go, maybe it will ease the stress a little. Save a few for the rest of us.

Has it been a long time since you have updated windows? If so maybe try updating windows to make sure you have the latest version of explorer. Just a wild guess but might be worth a try... If explorer is out of date might not be compatible with the new Crappie.com message board software.

I just get an arrow too on all the tools above the box you type in but they work. For a lot of them you have to highlight the text first and then click on the tool. Now for the smilies on the right I get the "hand with pointing finger" symbol. They work too!:o :mad: :)

Everything seems OK here:D :) :p

take your computers settings back however far you want. I have had some luck using it when I can't figure something out to just go back to the settings from 3-4 days previous. Don't know if this will affect your particular issue but worth a try. I have had my computer decide to do its own thing for no apparent reason and used it. Good luck.

You said something about new software......what was it? Sounds like a browser problem to me. Billy

12-01-2005, 07:59 AM
:confused: :D Is this thing on?:p

looks like mine works

12-01-2005, 08:27 AM
My bad....just re-read your post about the software....HERE. sorry... Billy

Karl; I had the same problem as you and just got it fixed. First I went to my "User CP" - Edit Options and went to the bottom and put it on "Test 2". Then just above that I clicked on "Enhanced Interface - Full WYSIWYG Editing" and saved changes. I then tried a response and still nothing worked. I then turned off my pop-up controls for this site. Leaving the setting like that, I then deleted my cookies and the files and offline files next to the cookies. I then tried to go back to the "User CP" and it said I wasn't logged in. I logged back in and tried a response and everything worked. You may have to make these changes and then logout and then log back in. Not sure what did it for me, but hopefully if you follow what I did it might help. I was about to go crazy for the last 2 days.:eek: :confused: :( :D

This is a Java issue. Update here: http://www.java.com/en/download/manual.jsp
Java is the programming language that allows those little buttons and things to show up and work in your browser.

Karl; I'm on AOL dial-up and the pop-up control is part of AOL to keep down spam and pop-ups. I had the same trouble as you, but something in what I did fixed it. I wish I could help more. Sorry.:( :mad: :confused:

It's good to not see any sad faces on your post finally!:D

Didn't fair too well on the tourney, but got a good mess of fish and had a real good time with some great people!! Got to meet a few more Crappie.com people and seen some fine fish (just not where we were). Treefrog has all the weights, so I'll let him give them out.
