  • [Forum] add table to the middle section of the forum makes the post window massive IE8

    OK this is not a bug its more of a problem, i am trying to add my own style box to the forum.

    at the bottom of the header if you add a table.

    [COLOR=#000000][FONT=Times New Roman][FONT=Courier New]<table border="2"> 
    and close that table in the footer

    [COLOR=#000000][FONT=Times New Roman]</td> 
    all works well in all browsers except in IE 8 when the site is set to compatibility it makes the post "newthread.php" go right accross the page so the posting window is approx 100000pix width, it also breaks the whats new page.

    this is not a bug but it is a big problem i am facing, any help would be appriciated.

    So you put the whole forum in a table tag? Have you tried running the generated html through an html validator to see what is wrong?
