If I type someones handle into the box in the send message section of the system,
it blonks out white.....
It just goes blank, the window showing the send message button, box to write on and box to enter the handle all blank out, I can still go onto the sent messages and read messages side bar, and use the game normally after however... and when I click on something else or refresh then return to the page its completely lear until I enter a handle again???
It only seems to appear when the system finds a name that I am typing e,g,
If I put in:
It would not blank out cos there is no one my the name
Even if I type in:
It still won't blank out
but as soon as the handle is finished no matter whose, it goes white and I can't type or anything
Alright, I didn't want to start up a new post just to address an issue (rather funny one) that already had one in the past. That's why I revived this one. I'm sure that the issue is happening because I am on IE, but my real question is directed towards non-IE users. I was wondering, is the issue below occurring to you as well, provided you are using links rather than URLs in DMs.
Anyway, I was having a conversation with my friend on here through DM when I wanted to redirect him to a link to a thread I posted in earlier today. I wanted to make sure that the link was working, so I went back to my sent messages to click on it. When I clicked on it, I was amzed at the result. Here is the before and after screenshots of the message. The before IS in the message system, I just cropped out the rest as I saw it as unnecessary to include.
Look ma, there be anoder web browser thangy inside my browser thangy!
I was just wondering if someone not using IE would be willing to give this a try to see if the same effect is produced. I think it's strange that this is happening, and find it even more so because of the fact that the "new browser", inside the message center's normal area, is fully functional. I mean, sure I can't type in a new URL and go to another site, but all of the functions of Combine are still usable from here, including ship travel.
So yeah, is this happening to any of you non-IE users, or no?
NOTE: I realize the images don't really show much, and that it can be interpreted that they are simply 'shopped and are just fakes. I assure all of you, I am being legit.
It's not a bug at all. It's the way the site is structured in frames. You failed to provide a target for your link, so it opened in the normal default - the frame that you provided the link in.
If you use 'target="_blank"' in your link (a href=address target="_blank")Text for link(/a) then it will open your link in a new window. Or target="_top" will open it outside of all the frames, as you seem to be expecting the link to do so automatically.
