Known Issues and Some Work Arounds

I think it would help all if we had or have a Landing Page for some issues and some of the things

we see that dont work and some of the things we have found that work. Instead of having to surf through 50 threads.

I can edit and add to them so they can see them at the top post. maybe we can help turn the boat around instead of just complaining.

You, I, and everyone, here is the reason this is a great board (BGE is just a commonality, but the people are the glue)  and a great hobby, lets step to the plate and help each other like we do with our food.

Contact Email ( Understand they are as busy as they will ever be in the next week or two so please show patience)

One of the Biggest Helps for me so far has been to point my Browser to:

biggreenegg.vanillaforums.com

Highlight above Drag your mouse over it,

 Right Click ,

Copy, Go up to your nvigator window right click, Paste

Save this as your favorite instead of Landing on The BGE page.

Known Log In Issues:

1. Cant Log In: 

 A. Uncheck The Remember Me Box

Browser Compatability

 (Everyone Seems to have different Luck so Far with What Works) I would highly recomend taking the time to upgrade to the latest version, not just for the forum use but for security holes.

Here is a link to some conversation about browsers: http://biggreenegg.vanillaforums.com/discussion/1133886/what-browers-are-working-or-not#Item_34

However if you dont want to read through them all the ones that seem to work the best are

  1. Firefox
  2. Chrome
  3. IE 9

1. Upgrade to latest Browser

A. Microsoft        http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/internet-explorer/downloads/ie

B. FireFox           http://www.mozilla.com/en-US/firefox/new/

C. Safari              http://www.apple.com/safari/download/

D. Opera              http://www.opera.com/download/get.pl?id=33843&thanks=true&sub=true

E. Chrome             http://www.google.com/chrome/index.html

Discussion Title Wont Take: Seeing "(Undefined)"

1. I havnt had good luck with the title, it disappears every time I type into it:

A. Save it to a Draft without a title then go back and re-input the title

Emoticons (Smiley Faces)

This one Falls back to Pointing your browser to the right board.
