Has anyone figured out why this doesn't work in FF but does work in IE?

Never mind, it did display when I wasn't logged in. Sorry, 50 lashes with a wet noodle!


  • What I was trying to do was to add the author's real name as was requested in another thread. I have been successful in modifying chefdelacuisine's extension. However, the css still needs work.
  • I cant figure out what a .gz file is? Does that happen for anyone else when downloading the extension?
  • It's another compressed format like zip. I use something called 7-Zip which has helped me unzip many different compressed files.
  • Thanks, 7-Zip worked great. Bit unusual though I thought
  • I haven't been able to get this extension to work, ive tested in firefox or safari. I havent made any modifications or anything. anyone know anything about this extension that i dont?
  • The information displays when you look at the comments.
  • could you elaborate? im not seeing it anywhere at all.
  • edited February 2007
    Do you see the header line on each comment with the user name and time posted? You should see the info on the right.
  • nope. nothing.
  • Can I have a link to your site? Also, was it ever working? What other extensions do you have activated?

    I think it's a conflict with AjaxQuotes (just my initial thought).

    Edit: I completely forgot that this adds a Forum Preference. For some reason, the comment author information displays for me even though I don't have this checked off. It looks like each forum member will have to change this option. Try it for you and see what displays.

    When I checked this off on your forum under my account, I saw the additional information.

    it seems to be displaying below the username in two lines and indented a bit. it looks really bad. can you think of what is causing it to do that rather than displaying nicely like in that screenshot you posted? thanks for all this help, btw.
  • The AjaxQuotes extension also puts stuff in the comment block. It could be just a stylesheet problem. Try disabling the AjaxQuotes extension and see what it looks like. Then you will know which one is causing the problem.
  • edited February 2007
    I disabled the AjaxQuote extension, and the results are the same as I described above.
  • Then you might want to look at the style you are using. Which one is it?
  • ive tried it with my own custom one and the default vanilla.
  • I'm experiencing the same problem as well...
  • For me, it just looks terrible. :(
  • Although I am not the author of this extension, I have made some mods to it for me, one of which is the stylesheet. It may help you. This is what I have:
    #Comments .CommentHeader .AuthorInformation { /* float:left; line-height:1em; margin:4px 4px 0px 0px; padding:0px; text-align:left;*/ font: bold; font-size: 0.8em; } #Comments .CommentHeader .AuthorInformation li { display:inline; } /* get it somewhat nice in opera & konqueror */ #Comments .CommentHeader ul { padding-right:1em; } /* avoid conflicts with AjaxQuote's style (at least in firefox) */ .CommentBody blockquote:first-child{ /* margin-top:3em;*/ }
    As you can see, I have commented out some of the css. Try it and see what happens.
