have some oposite colours like black and white or purple and lime green to make it a bit more vibrant,

No, we're not a homosexual advocacy website. This is Grand Theft Auto, not Viva Piñata.

cause right now it looks the same as the rest of the site. :thumbsup:

That's the whole point. If we used a different layout for every page no one would visit. Inconsistency is a very bad thing.

Thanks for the comments guys, I'll post here again when more has been completed.

Oh btw, Internet Explorer 6 shows the main area (where the categories are) below the entire site, but above the copyright notice. Hopefully this explains what I mean:

God I hate Internet Explorer 6, worst browser in the history of the internet.

Should be fixed now.

I don't even have a copy of IE6 installed on any computers in this house or even my Dad's house, we're all smart enough to secure our computers, and know that if we must use IE then at least use IE7 (my mum and dad simply will not change to any other browser).... Sooo... unfortunately I can't actually test it out. But what I can tell you is that the error I fixed just now keeps all the code valid xhtml meaning the problem is definitely with IE6. Not our site.

More then half of all internet users use IE6, They just don't upgrade or anything so stick to that (Not Vista users of course). So downgrade one of the PC's and try it out. Lot's of new members join because of the mods, and if that's f***ed we might not get that many new members, or at least less...

Valid HTML/CSS doesn't mean it looks good - IE probably just sets vertical-align to middle by default or wants it in the container div instead of the contained divs or something silly.

Can I clarify, is it just the main page that shows the table messed up in IE6? Or is it every single beta page?

f*** THEM

It's all well and good saying that but the fact is 70% of all visitors are using Internet Explorer 6 since it comes with Windows XP. And unless we want to turn 70% of our visitors away from the site, we need to have the site work on all browsers.

@Chris - I only tried the index, I will see if I can get to a PC to view it more today.

I don't think anybody likes IE, have you tried Firefox (free download)?

If you love something, set it free. If it comes back, it's meant to be.

If not, point & laugh when it flies into a woodchipper.

Is that "the fact"? Do you have the stats to prove that? Do you mean for tgtap or for the entire Internet?

The entire internet, if you look over any websites statistics on visitors it would be the same if not similar. I'm going from what I now and what I have read in reports before, and if you look at it the proof is there. Either way, we will be making it work for all browsers, we would be committing fan site suicide if we didn't. I'm sure Chris would agree that it is important we do.

Yes. And I'm one of the few people who dislike FF. I prefer IE by far and have never had any troubles with it, ever.

Problem.

The only people who don't like Firefox are:

1)Poor and don't have the money to get a decent amount of ram (at least 512mb) that you should have anyway
OR
2)Are retarded

Jace -

If IE works for you, go with it. I just hate microslop & their philosophy of wanting us buy buy all new soft & hardware
every couple of years :pissedred: . Chris's gonna finish the overhaul on time to sort issues w/ Vista if he's not already fighting with it.

BTW Chris, good luck with that.

Let's not turn this into a browser war, there's probably already one in the computer chat forum if that's what you want. I WILL sort out the problem, obviously. It's not my top priority right now though.

However, for the time being, if YOU are using the downloads beta and prefer to use IE as your browser, please do consider upgrading to IE7 if you're using anything less that that.

Some sites like to display "Optimised for Mozilla Firefox" images, or another browser - this is a result of VERY poor web design skills, if you're a web designer you should ensure your sites work in ALL browsers, not just one, you should never force people into using something they don't want. Encourage and discourage all you like, just don't force.
Myself being a web designer I do my best to ensure The GTA Place is compatible in as many browsers as possible. I own Mac, Windows and Linux machines and so can personally test a lot myself. However, being security concious, I usually always use the latest versions, which is why I need people like you, who aren't necessarily using latest versions to help beta test. You have already helped me by notifying me of a bug in IE6 and below. If I didn't get you guys to test it, I would never have found it.

Browsers I personally test are the following:
Windows:
Firefox 2
Opera 9.2
IE 7
Netscape 8.1

Mac
Firefox 2
Opera 9.2
Safari 2
Camino 1.5

Apologies, didn't mean to set anything off.

If you have a minute, will the upgraded download section get along w/ Vista or do you know yet?

Also are there any threads on running Linnux, if so could you point me in that direction, thanks.
