I was chastising my husband for never looking or posting in the forums, and then he showed me the reason why.

For some reason the "black bubbles" that appear when you hover over the forum topic, appears directly over the Link Name/Forum Topic -- so it blocks his ability to click the link.  This also happens when he hovers over the Log In button.

We looked at internet options, but can't figure what might be causing the bubbles to appear directly over the link (as opposed to below, as it does when *I* hover).


Any ideas on what settings need to change?  Since he can't get into the forums at all, we would have to ask an admin to change a profile/forum setting on his behalf, if that is the problem.

This is gonna sound basic, but out of curiosity, has your husband tried accessing the forums using a different browser? (Like if he's on Internet Explorer, has he tried using Chrome or Firefox?)

Related to that, has he updated his browser recently? (If not, have him do that.. if so, then maybe the most recent version is causing issues then)

To me this sounds more like it'd be a browser issue than a forum issue...

I would agree with Trip, it's most-likely a browser issue.  Try it on different browsers, if it's universal that can tell us a lot.  If the problem is specific to one browser, let us know which one and I'm sure it can be looked into....or he can just use the browser that works. ;)

I'll have him do that.  I totally expect it to be something silly like that...
