IE6 problem

    I logged into IE6 with my forum, no problems. I logged out, then tried to login again. But I can’t even click into the login field! Nothing! I checked the cookies, my domain is set to “Always Allow”. I rebooted. Still the same problem. Any suggestions?

    Anything on the rest of the page, I can click on, including the Register link. The file permissions for login.php and login-form.php are set to 644 which is what it has always been.

    But if I click on the login button with nothing in the fields, the bb-login.php pops in. Then I can login. What gives that I can do the login in the intended way in IE6?

    I’ve discovered more IE6 problems.

    If I am logged in as just a member, I cannot see my profile, just the title of the forum!

    When I want to add a new topic, I cannot see “Add New”. Just shows “TOPIC -”.

    If I try to add a new topic by clicking on a forum (after being registered), all I can see is “New Topic in This Forum”, then just blank space!

    What the h* is going on? Everything is beautiful in FireFox.

    Okay, this so-called IE 6 problem when logged in as Member has to do with capabilities roles. Members can’t add new topics, only edit topics. That’s why I couldn’t see so much stuff. And I was still logged in with Administrator status in Firefox that Firefox appeared to be fine. Knocking my head against the wall!

    The automatic default when someone subscribes is to give them Member status. I would like to give my Members capabilities to add new topics within the forums, and handle those new topics. What would be the additions I would have to make in the capabilities to handle those areas? I think giving them Moderator status is too much, but I’m not sure.

    I definitely don’t want to change all my Members to Moderator status, as they can edit users etc.

    I want Members to add new topics, and handle their topics, and change their profile.

    I can’t say how it’s s’posed to work, but I have “Member” users that have created topics quite successfully, so this sounds like a misconfiguration issue.

    You might find posting the URL would elicit some feedback when folk get a chance to visit, register and look.

    I want it to be that simple earlgrey. But you will notice as a “Member” that the “Add New” will disappear. My capabilities.php is the original .73 version.

    I was wondering why no one was posting, until a viewer emailed me with their posting problems.

    Members should be able to write topics and posts. Do you have any plugins installed?

    That was it mdawaffe! A plugin called mod-write-topics. And it’s been booted out! Now members can add posts.

    But members cannot view their profile, which I think they should be able too.

    They cannot view their profile in IE6. But they can view their profile in Firefox.

    The source code shows fine in IE6. So it has to do with the css.

    This part I question:

    ul id=’profile-menu’

    in the template-functions.php file.

    I would think that IE6 would want a

    ul id=”profile-menu”

    but that just produced an error.

    Could it be that IE6 doesn’t like it that there is no css for id “profile-page”, except what I assume is inherited?

    Solved. It was a css problem in the profile section!
