Another "layering" problem?

I just tried to use the "email this" function on one of your recipes (vanilla poached pears, if it makes a difference). But the pop up thing (where you type in the recipient) was *underneath* the advertisement that was above the recipe. Needless to say, I could not see the boxes in which to type the address or my message. (It seems similar to the problem with the "who's talking" avatars that was recently resolved.)

Am I the only one experiencing this problem?

  1. FYI the "who's talking" avatars: the problem has been identified and the engineers may know how to resolve it, but that resolution hasn't shown up for us yet.

      Actually, the "who's talking" avatars has been fixed, at least for me. That's why I thought this was a new issue. But I haven't doublechecked the recipe-emial-window problem since I experienced it (when I originally posted). I'll have to check again to see if it's doing the same thing still.

        If you're still experiencing the problem, can you let us know what platform/browser you're using?

          The problem with avatar labels and layering has never been fixed for me -- it's been going on at least since mid-September, and the first post about this problem goes back to August 23rd.

          Running IE6/XP Pro.

          Not a programmer, but I do know that in layering graphics, a "bring to front" command is very easy, as is a "send to back" command.

          I don't understand why this fix is so difficult (sorry, don't mean to be lacking in compassion) or why this is taking so long. Yes, I know the problem has been solved for some Mac users using certain browsers...but what about all the IE Windows folks?

          Thanks for your help, Davina, and I hope for a re-address of the problem and a permanent fix -- for all operating systems and browsers.

    2. I just wanted to re-post since I doublechecked both of the problems I was experiencing. I'm using IE/Windows XP.

      Problem 1 - the hiding of the avatars in the "who's talking" box when I run my mouse over the small images to see the large images. This has been fixed for me. I don't seem to experience any problems at all, no matter which ad is running underneath that area.

      Problem 2 - the layering problem where the email pop-up box to send a recipe was hiding underneath the advertising in the top banner. This too appears to be resolved for me. I just clicked onto two recipes with top-banner ads. The email function worked just fine both times.

      So thanks to whomever fixed this. At least for me.
