Something odd about cepheid ;)

Hehe - nothing wrong with cepheid - but looking at his posts in IE 8 his user info is completely out of wack, and his quick links drop-down looks strange too. See attached:

Well, you know IE8 really sucks.  Other than that, I don't think it's my fault... have you tried clearing cache?

Yup!!

Of course not - but the strange thing is that it only happens to your screen-name and only where quick-links are in use.

Yes.

Clearly, I'm very disruptive.

Your running the Windows 7, Build 7000 beta?

AFAIK, you can't install the RTM IE 8 final on that build or the RC1. 


http://www.microsoft.com/windows/internet-explorer/worldwide-sites.aspx

click on Attention Window 7 users.

BUT that artifact doesn't appear on IE8 in XP, so prolly due to the IE8 Beta

Here's the reason - They have 3 or 4 new features for the Windows 7 RTM that have to work with IE8, including one called XP mode plus the new multi-touch tablets (for kiosks and table pc's.)  

For those who only use Windows with 'PCs', there's a OS specific version of IE for each flavor (XP, XP 64, Vista, Vista 64, Server 2003, Server 2008 etc), based on system components.

other stuff about this:

Good Luck

confirmed. But there are compatible mode button right from address URL field in IE8 which fix it. Smiley

@ JonB

Not only Windows 7. I use Windows Vista Ultimate 64bit with IE8 (Final and download separately)

Nope - IE 8 on Vista (32 bit)

Yes - the compatibility button did the trick - must be a browser specific issue - IE 8 works in mysterious ways  Shocked
Still it's strange that only cepheid's account is affected??

Using IE8 on Windows XP I see the issue too.  Viewing the HTML I see this odd unclosed and unused span in a few places:
Code
Select All
				<li><span class=<a href="javascript:closeLinks('737560787579741006')" style="position:absolute;right:3px"><b>X</b></a></li>
				<li><a href="http://www.yabbforum.com/community/YaBB.pl?action=viewprofile;username=73756078757974100" rel="nofollow">View cepheid's Profile</a></li>
				<li><a href="http://www.yabbforum.com/community/YaBB.pl?action=imsend;to=73756078757974100">Send PM to cepheid</a></li>
				<li><script type='text/javascript'>

This may not be the cause, but could be another issue... He has this:
<a href=

in his website URL box of his profile.  This means the website field is not being sanitized for proper input or not properly anyway.

Can you please send me a PM with the copy of his .vars file? Thanks.
Edited:
And MrDale95's too. I hope he hasn't modified his Profile the last hours because I want to know where the Problem comes from.

You know, that's not what I had. My .vars file must have been corrupted, because I used to have a perfectly fine link in there.  I've restored it now.
