For some odd reason, I can not access Kixeye.com on Internet Explorer but I CAN on any other browser. Can it be answered as to why? What can I do to fix this? This is on multiple computers connected to different providers so it is not a computer "problem" per say. Maybe just a setting?

    Could you let me know which Operating System (Win XP?) and what version of IE you are using please.

    I am running both IE 7 & 8 on Windows XP and Windows 7, sorry I didn't mention that before.

    Don't try and use IE7 or 8 at all - and especially so on Win XP. You should be able to use Chrome or Firefox on XP without too much trouble though. remember that M$ support for Win XP finishes soon as well.

    That stinks, LOL. They had Chrome available until recently at my job and Firefox is not available. So as I understand Internet Explorer as a whole is useless in trying to access your website?

    No, just the earlier versions. Which is why XP is so limiting, because IE updates are no longer supported on it.

    The website will not load on IE period. Apparently will only work on IE earlier than 7 which makes NO SENSE whatsoever

    But I also try it on Windows 7 as I mentioned and the same thing. So it's not an XP issue

    It does if you factor in lazy coding.

    Cross browser does not always mean backwards compatible.

    Not really, there are some thing that the older browsers just cannot do, no matter how many workarounds you include for them. When I started web developing I was supporting Lynx and netscape 4.72. Lynx was easy, Nutscrape 4.72 had been seen as one of the worst browser releases ever. It may have been over shadowed by some of the later IE releases though.

    Apologies, I missed that - what version of IE are you using on there? If you are using 8, then it should work. But it is always beneficial to upgrade to the latest available version, and for IE that is apparently version 10 now.

    There are, yes, but you can offer reduced functionality rather than it just not working at all (although there are usually ways to simulate the missing functionality in other ways).  I also remember early web development and using javascript to detect and switch between two, or sometimes more if you want to include some kind of reduced, text-only version for fall back, fully mirrored but differently coded websites depending on browsers and this was before CSS and later technologies which does this better and easier.  

    But why on Earth would you dump a more functional, more compatible forum for this utter mess?  Never mind backwards compatible, that was a backwards step.  I like and respect you Rich, you must be feeling fed-up yourself with the direction Kixeye is going.  Anyway, I digress.  Whatever.

    There were reasons why we couldn't use vBulletin, and yes we were sad about that. There was a ton of extras for that forum - but it was also very limiting. We do have more flexibility with what we have now. Features may be lacking at the moment, but we are working on these, and other exciting new features for the site as a whole, for release in the coming months.
