      WELCOME TO THE CASCADECLIMBERS.COM FORUMS   02/03/18

      We have upgraded to new forum software as of late last year, and it makes everything here so much better!  It is now much easier to do pretty much anything, including write Trip Reports, sell gear, schedule climbing related events, and more. There is a new reputation system that allows for positive contributors to be recognized,  it is possible to tag content with identifiers, drag and drop in images, and it is much easier to embed multimedia content from Youtube, Vimeo, and more.  In all, the site is much more user friendly, bug free, and feature rich!   Whether you're a new user or a grizzled cascadeclimbers.com veteran, we think you'll love the new forums. Enjoy!

I haven't seen that. I would recommend that you give Firefox a try. Its a quick download, its my browser of choice. There are other options too. Try accessing the site in Firefox, and if you have the same problem PM me and we'll figure it out. If others are having the issue in IE I can take a look at it...

I would install firefox. I have very limited exposure to Vista but I will tell you it is a hog, and makes a laptop run so hot that you will likely burn out your hardware quicker then if you were running XP.

 

We are still having some problems with the ads which I have tried to address with Google, but have yet to resolve. I'm not sure if this has to do with one particular ad or more globally with Google, but I'm personally getting sick of it as I'm sure you are. I'm working on it and I assure you I will find a solution even if it means removing them.

 

I'm going to start by blacklisting some of the google advertisers, both because I think their ads are crappy and break our site, and more importantly they are running an unfair and unsustainable business model that is hurting our local retailers. Online retailers that offer 30% off on everything are breaking their contracts and in the end screw everyone over. Please please please support local retailers especially ones that have been supporting us for so long. I remember us losing a lot of retailers in the 90s and we are poised to have the same happen again unless we rally behind them.

So, I got rid of the avatars

NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!1

 

PS: The cursor-dropping-to-the-ads-at-the-bottom-of-the-page thing still happens quite a lot.

 

And that embedded quote function fuck-up is still present and still aggravating.

I too end up at the bottom of the page quite often. It happens when I hit back or if I choose the next page on a post list. It's really annoying. Any way to make this stop?

Sobo The cursor-dropping-to-the-ads-at-the-bottom-of-the-page thing still happens quite a lot.

 

Olyclimber-I would recommend that you give Firefox a try.

 

I was afflicted by this phenomena until I took Oly's advice:yoda: and switched to Firefox. Problem solved.

So what's the deal with the style sheet having gone gray? My preferences are still set to Smiffy_copy, which I think used to be the default blue color scheme. Now it appears to be gray...

I want my old display back, please. :cry: The gray is hard on my eyes, everything is too whitish.

There is a possibility I overwrote the template by accident. Check out the tuftlove template and tell me if that is the same one.

What happened to "Gallery"?

 

Why does it have an outdated blue format and a bigger font? Firefox runs updates every few days but it does not seem to help.

 

It's been like that for the last few days regardless of what Mac I am using.

I have downloaded a bunch of pics and yes it does work better than before.

It just does not look consistent with the rest of the website.

Does this upgrade include google ads on every page? I see a little "advertisement" after the first post on every page now.

 

is this the new cc.com or my browser?

I see the same thing. Right below the first post in new threads. I'm using IE7.

We were doing a little experiment, but logged in users should only see them in spray. We will be removing them though.

We have gotten rid of the google ads after the first post, we were doing that as a little experiment. Over the next couple months we will be doing gradual upgrades and rolling out some new stuff so if anyone experiences any wonkiness let us know.
