I've tested the site in several iPad/iPhone emulators online and the menus load and work fine... some of them have the converted top menu for smart phones that I installed, (which works fine) others have the drop-down menus that look the same in standard browsers... all of which work fine on these emulators... Thinking-about

Here's some where the web page loads and menus work fine (works fine on others I've tried also):

http://iphonetester.com/

http://transmog.net/iphone-simulator/

http://interactiveiphone.com/

http://ipad-emulator.org/

Also, we've had other people test the site using Androids and iPhones and no one yet has said that they couldn't see the menus at all. Huh

Thanks for the feedback... Not sure what's going on here. Dont-know

I do know that flash was not a part of the iPhone/iPad but with Steve Jobs gone, that must have changed.

I actually picked up my iPhone and tested...and it did work...the odd thing is that it is iffy cause there are some flash sites that still do not work.

One way to test a web page is to look up browser shots (it's a dot org ext) and test all the most common ones you may see in your awstats. Also check and see how many visit you using a mac.

Hey SuperSleeper, not to rain on your parade or anything, but I like the way the old site is better. When I go over the screen with my screenreader on the new site, I don't see the names of the posts, rather, all I see is "Public Area, This Area Is Accessible To Everyone, or if I'm over the "Master Members" area, I just see "Private Area, This Area is Accessible to Master Members Only." The way it is on the old site is that I can see the names of the posts. I don't mean to confuse you and maybe I'm doing something wrong, that is possible, for sure, (Ha-Ha-Ha-Ha,) I'm not even sure if I'm explaining it right so hopefully, that helps. Again, I'm sorry if I have confused you with my lack of ability to explain this to you.

Okay, I made some changes to the PHP index file and the CSS settings...

Can you folks with Macs clear your browser's cache and re-load the main page and see if it's any better?

I have no Apple products and all my stuff works fine.....coincidence? Hmmmm.....
As always, YMMV! You do not have to agree or disagree, I am not a professional so my mental meanderings are simply recollections of things from my own life.

Hi again SuperSleeper, If I click on "View Today's Posts," it works fine, I can see the posts. Some of the difficulties I have is with the screenreader so I'm glad I'm not the only one weighing in on this because screenreaders are a horse of a different color, they can make EVERYONE crazy, (Ha-Ha-Ha-Ha.)

Hi Trish, I'm looking into possible solutions to make it easier for screen readers, but so far I haven't found something that will work with our forum software. I'll keep looking. Thanks.

I'm not an Apple fan either. I have my opinions of the late Steve Jobs and I best keep those opinions to myself. Too-funny I'm not even a Bill Gates fan, really.. which is why my desktops run Ubuntu Linux.

Howdy, Doc...

If clicking on www.ApneaBoard.com takes you back to the old forum, something may be wrong with your browser, a virus perhaps?

The old forum URL is here:

http://s7.zetaboards.com/Apnea_Board/index/

Is that what you're seeing, or does it look like the pictures that cbramsey posted in this post?

Huh

With regard to these issues on Macs, I'm pretty sure that on those Mac browsers, there is an issue with the drop-down menu interfering with the moving Flash panel below those menus as they are expanded. The ApneaBoard.com website code seems to be pretty standard.... the problem seems to be that the browsers in question (Mac versions) aren't coded to handle the flash content correctly, I think, which is actually an issue with those browsers, not the web page. I can't change the code of web browsers, unfortunately... Thinking-about

For those of you having issues: do you have the latest version of Chrome and Apple Safari? If so, perhaps your browser's Flash plugin needs to be updated. I don't know what's going on for sure.... and I don't have access to a Mac to check things... so if anyone has more info, please let me know.

Thanks! Coffee

It looks like the pictures that cbramsey posted, but that page takes you back to the a forum page that doesn't look any different to me than the forum I saw last week. What are the differences that I am supposed to be seeing? They aren't that obvious to me.

Hi Doc, I started this thread back in March.... lonnieb saw it and replied to this old thread yesterday, bumping it back up to the top...

The website changes I spoke about in the first post of this thread were done over 4 months ago. Coffee

I think once we get these other issues ironed out, I'll delete the thread completely.

Thanks.

Hi SuperSleeper, don't sweat it about the screenreaders, I'll just keep trying on my end. As far as being an "Apple" fan, I'm not necessarily a fan of either of the main opperating systems, it's just that the "Mac" is what I learned on and the newer opperating systems have a "Builtin" screenreader that comes with the system and it beats,all to heck spending an extra $900.00 to $1000.00 for an out-board screen reader, "depending on whether it is "Windoweyes" or "Jaws," for the "Windows" opperating system,)"so that worked better financially for me.
