Having some browser issues. Internet Explorer puts my links and archives down at the bottom of the screen. However, everything displays just fine with Firefox. Any of you tech heads out there know what's up with IE?

Robert: I see! A similar manifestation is visible using Opera. What previously (even yesterday) showed the links, etc., on the right (with Cascading Style Sheets [CSS] *enabled*) and at the bottom (with CSS turned off) now shows NOTHING unilt CSS is disabled. (And then it's at the bottom, as normal for that mode.) ==== I can offer one dumb thought -- well two, actually, though one won't help. The latter is that Blogger may have changed something that adversely affected only IE -- not at all impossible! The former is that the overall *length* of the main page may be inhibiting the link display. (Under Opera with CSS, the links ONLY used to show up properly after the whole page was loaded.) ==== I absolutely can't guarantee this will help -- though it will speed up load time -- but you might try eliminating more of the already archived material from the bottom of the main page. Some browsers -- especially Opera -- are notoriously sensitive to HTM size! (Naturally, you want to be sure they *are* securely archived before deleting them from the main page.) ==== And a possibly related, "gremlin" question: We seem to have LOST a thread since yesterday -- the "Thanks to Die for the Elite" one. As I saw when editing my own post above, it's gone POOF completely, even from the dashboard list! Any idea what happened there?

I've chopped down the number of posts on the main page from 30 days to 14 with no improvement. I took down two posts. One with some dodgy HTML in the article I pasted, and the one you mentioned with the poster of the "Poor Man's F-16" because I thought there might be an iissue with the size of the pic. That kind of thing has happened before. But nothing changed. I'm going to re-post that image later, it was just to good to keep away.

Robert: I see you succeeded in restoring the "presentation". Good show! What did you ultimately find was the problem? (Assuming it's not too complicated to go into.)

[Note: That refers only to the display using Opera. I don't know if IE is okay.]

IE is still not working. I'm glad Opera is. Firefox is still running fine as well. I can only assume one of our posts has an odd break in the HTML or something.I've run up against this before.IE has done this to me before, and it eventualy sorted itself out. I'm hoping it will solve itself as soon as all these recent posts are archived. I'm going to give it a week or so and if it doesn't resolve itself that way I'll contact Blogger and see if they can help.

If all else fails I can always re-load the template and re-customize everything. Pain in the ass...

Thanks for the help.
