It's my old CSS file...
by John.Wilkinson / August 19, 2008 6:18 AM PDT

The new one, currently posted, should resolve all such problems. The engineers are still doing some minor tweaks and additions, which I'm adjusting for as they post them, but after that update there shouldn't be any major issues forthcoming.

Ahh I missed that.

I saw you mention you were updating your css file, but missed where you said you had done it. Thanks John.

Out of curiosity, are you using the 'easy' (pseudo-auto-update) version?

Er..... Yes!

What's that? Devil

I checked your CNET Forum Tracker site, (all of it), and didn't see a message related to that. What did I miss?

"Isn't there an easier way? Sure! Just ignore the previous two sections and click here."

The linked page provides alternative downloads which, instead of containing the overrides, contains imports of the permalinks to the pages on my site. Particularly for Opera and Safari users, it means you do not have to modify your user CSS file(s) every time; just clear your browser cache and you'll be automatically updated. (pseudo-auto-update) Hopefully there won't be too many updates needed, but I update my own frequently so I figured while I'm sharing I might as well add an easy way for others to keep updated.

Yes I knew that!

I did!

OK I admit it.... I saw that section but didn't realize the full importance of it. Happy
