Hello Ed,

Coincidentally there have been recent similar reports and it's not clear if these are related to an issue with the latest builder update/release or if it is in fact a user issue.

The suggested self help recommendations: clearing your browser cache; checking your code to see if there is any rogue code or RTF text; changing to another browser such as Chrome or FireFox

Clearly no coincidence. I've eliminated browser cache and rogue code/RTF as potential causes, and won't take the hassle of changing my browser from widely used IE8.
Suggest you fix your system.

I've been having an ongoing problem with IE also, using IE is a hard habit to break, but for sitebuilding with Yola you will get a much better result using Chrome, so I surf with IE and sitebuild with Chrome - much less frustration.

Thanks all for these responses. I get the message - ditch IE because Yola won't fix their software. Ho hum.

Hello Ed Tozer

Internet Explorer is supported by Yola in general. But considering that the most recent version IE10 has been out for a while, IE8 is a rather out-dated version of this browser, and we won't be supporting it for much longer. However, we will be supporting IE9 and IE10. I've checked the HTML Widget functionality in IE10, and it's working fine for me.

Would it make sense for you to update to IE9 or IE10? Browser providers always recommend to use the latest version, also for web security reasons. However, I'd like to point out to you that we're currently still busy with making IE10 100% compatible with Yola, so I'd suggest that you update to IE9 for the time being if you would like to stay with that browser.

I'm sorry for the inconvenience caused, and I hope that fixes for IE10 will be implemented soon.

Thanks. Under Win XP, IE8 is my upper limit. There must be millions like me. Will go to Windows 8/ IE 10 sometime when the old kit conks.

Have just gone to Google Chrome on both Win XP machines, under duress. Much faster, no glitches, no Yola bugs found. Words eaten.

We can now close this discussion, thanks to all.
