Search Box Blocked

Postby CaptForce » Thu Jun 13, 2013 9:09 pm

I am accustomed to using the drop down box fron the "search" button to select unread posts, but I see now that the drop down selections fall behind the advertisements and are blocked from being used. I hope this is a temporary glitch. I will not take the time to plow through every forum catagory for new posts to read.
Take care and joy, Aythya crew

More details would be nice. What browser and browser version, and what is your screen resolution?

I am not looking at anything related to my browser or screen resolution. I'm speaking of the Life Aboard Home Page that has the selections of, "Messages, Albums, Advertise, Members, Search........" beneath the banner. Under these choices there is a space for advertisment. I've nothing against ads, but, as of yesterday, when I now move my cursor to "search", the options on the drop down box fall behind the ad and out of view. Maybe I'm wrong and this is somehow specific to my computer and my location, but that doesn't seem likely.

I need the info above so I can try to reproduce it. Since I have no issues it's pretty darn hard to figure out why you are with out more info.

So, are you on a Mac or PC? What operating system version? What browser and browser version are you using? It's most likely a browser issue but we'll never know if I don't get this info.

Sure, I'm on my Dell laptop Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit and using Explorer 7 on Windows as my browser.

Thanks. The best I can tell so far is it's an IE 7 issue. Upgrading to IE 8 or FF should fix the issue.

I think it's only happens with flash banners in conjunction with the script used to produce the drop down menu.

For now you have to refresh the page to load a static banner, at least until another solution is found on my end, or IE 8 or FF fix the issue for you.

I'm back with this same problem again. I go the "search" selection and an advertisement covers my option to view unread posts. I'll just spend my time elsewhere until this is resolved.
