Forum display "from the Stone Age"

Recommended Posts

The last few times I've tried accessing this forum using the Royal Opera House wifi, I get what I'd now regard as a "20th century layout" - a basic text page with all the "boxed" letters which replace avatars coming up absolutely gigantic - rather than the forum as it usually looks.  I don't appear to have the problem with other websites.  Does anyone else find this when using a tablet or laptop?

Horrid: I'm starting to wonder if it's something inherent to this laptop/browser (IE11), because I don't usually get it with my older machines and I'm now getting it at home as well. Makes the entire site virtually unusable.

 

Edit: Okay, I'm guessing it's maybe a combination of this forum software and a Windows 8.1/IE8 computer because I'm getting the same thing on another forum which uses the same software. I can't even post a screengrab from here.

There didn't appear to be anything in the cache to clear, but even after doing so the problem is still there.

No, I only have the one browser on that laptop, and don't have room for any more.  It's only recently it's started happening, too.  I did think at one stage it was just because the broadband/wi-fi signal was poor, but now I'm not so sure.  Will try and copy my screen grab over from the other computer so I can post it here.

Sorry if I'm stating the obvious but IE8 (as well as I think IE9 and IE10) has been out of support by Microsoft for a good 18 months now, and many (if not most) applications providers have followed suit by no longer testing on it. You should probably expect things only to get worse :(

 

Not good news for those who can't upgrade, I know!

I've had similar problems from time to time on other websites but not Balletco. I assume that the Style sheets (CSS) are not being applied for some reason, hence it drops back to a rather primitive html appearance. I can ask around. 

 

IE11 with Windows 10 works fine on my machine. Which version of Windows do you have?
