OTHER TP and DW sites

Postby deldaisy » Wed Feb 29, 2012 7:37 pm

I was googling around for various stuff and came upon this site.... never heard of it before. It was actually quite interesting. :lol: :lol:

At times I felt like saying... "Ohhhhh! We know that! We have a whole thread about that!" :lol:


I wonder how many other sites devouted to TP or DW there are.....

Don't know if anyone is interested but my site Bricks and Books has split into two separate sites as I feel both subjects (Lego & Discworld would be more popular on their own dedicated site so..

for Lego fans its http://brickfanatics.co.uk
for Discworld fans its http://discworldfanatics.co.uk

I am in the middle of bringing the content from Bricks and Books over to the new sites.

Hmm that is possibly your screen resolution as it is designed to sit at the side of a posting page, like this:

What is your screen resolution? Also what browser was you using as want to fix it for you and others that may experience this issue.

It's not your resolution, it is a browser issue, the theme I use has been built for the latest browsers but will try and re-code for the share panel to display right for IE8 users as well. The side panel displays fine in the latest versions of Firefox, Chrome, Opera and IE9.

I know the feeling as I have IE8 on my pc as that is on XP but I avoid use IE at all costs but I checked and got a similar issue in my IE so currently working on a fix :)

I spoke to the person who created the share feature and the issues is with IE 8 this is what they said:

Yes, this is a known issue with IE8. Because of the way IE8 works, the sharebox had to be fixed to the edge of the browser window instead of the edge of the main content panel.


However they are working on a fix or away to hide it from people using the IE8 Browser. :)

I prefer IE have used Firefox on my netbook running a linux os but it's giving me some problems lately re updates and not being able to use my moble dongle now. :roll: :x but that may down partly to that particular acer version.

I had an Acer and FF is a very basic version on there but I only use it for when I need firebug, I seem to prefer Chrome right now. Nothing much between user wise more down to preference but it's a pain in the ass when getting a theme to be cross browser compatible, IE6 and IE8 are the worse for getting things to look right on.
