    Header probs

    Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.9.2.3) Gecko/20100401 Firefox/3.6.3

    1024x786 LCD monitor.

    Is the search tool displaying correctly? It looks a little skew but my Opera browser also looks similar.

    It should look like this:

    Odd - I can't reproduce what you're getting using Firefox, though.

    There is a suspect. I just hacked in the Google custom search as a quick fix - I've still got to clean up that code and fix the css and positioning properly. It might well be what's causing the problem. It really misbehaves in the Articles section...

    I'll try to look at cleaning up the code tonight and let's see if that clears the problem.

    Uh oh - The XHTML validates just fine, the CSS is another story.

    And that's nothing to do with me - that's bugs built into the vBulletin skinning system

    I've been horrified at just how many bugs default vB 4.1 has shipped with. I've found and fixed quite a few already and I had another 3 on my to-do list without even looking too hard. That was 3 to go - until now.

    Shyte - just found another one. Guests can't view the attachments in this thread despite all the permissions being set so they should be able to. At least that's the way it was before the upgrade and I haven't tinkered with any of those settings

    This is beyond a joke!

    You might have to live with this for a couple of weeks

    No problemo Dave, it's not a biggie and I wasn't trying to give you stress, it was just something for tinkering when you have the time. Chin up

    I'm actually glad you brought it up. So far the niggles of this upgrade have been like a motor car engine that is throwing the odd superficial problem on a fairly regular basis - you're never sure whether to patch the problem or completely strip down and rebuild the engine.

    This pushes it into the rebuild zone. I can't do that right away, but I can make my plans accordingly.

    In the meantime, the motor is still running, so we'll just have to live with the misfires until then.

    It displays differently on different pages. Not complaining, just hopefully the info helps you pin down the problem quicker.

    Thanks for the feedback. It is very useful.

    That last one is the Articles page issue I refered to earlier. I just need to find the right class to set for the div container to solve that one.

    What's got me beat for now is why the internal search button ends up on the next row below the search box in your case.

    vBulletin has a beta release of their next bug fix edition out and one of those issues is the css problem (the likely culprit).

    If there's this many bugs with the existing release it would be a brave man who jumps into a beta with both feet. I haven't come across anything I would class as annoying so there's no stress from me. Browser compatibility is always headaches especially now you have the mobile interfaces to deal with

    Damn straight.

    The good news is this might solve the problem and quite a few others besides. I'll be sure to make a post once the upgrade is done. I'd guess that would be in about 2 to 4 weeks.
