My Java's are enabled, but I still get nothing from the tabs at the top of the page.

Warning, Warning, Will Robinson :eek:. Seems everytime I download something that's supposed to make my notebook work better, faster, smarter, I end up regretting it.

Apparently somthing wrong as the only two tabs that work are the upload manuals and forum.

All looks good from my Mac using Firefox. See attached movie file (Quicktime).

I'll try on a PC laptop next using Internet Explorer.

Alrighty then! Did NOT work on a PC laptop using Internet Explorer 8. I have tried tons of settings changes found on the Internet with no luck.

If you are using I.E. 8, I have no ideas for you on getting the Manuals page to work other than using Firefox, Safari, Opera etc.

Sorry,

Jim

Sounds like discrimination to me! :D

Sounds like Microsoft to me. :angel:

Oops! Did I say that outloud?

Seriously, we have not been able to switch to IE8 at school because it isn't compatible with so much of our stuff like our student info manager programs.

Michael Kidd is looking into the coding for the manuals page. If it can be tweaked to work around IE 8 - he will figure it out.

Until then, try out Firefox - you may like it :) I love it.

Lin is still using IE7 on her laptop with Win XP. :eek: I've gotten so used to Vista and Firefox I can't stand using her computer. Firefox is great.

That's what I'm using, IE7 and XP. Tried the IE8 download and could not get rid of it fast enough. Jazzed up a few things before I dumped it. How I long for the old corkboard & tacks bulletin boards.....NOT :D

If you haven't tried Firefox you should. Works great, much better than IE7 IMHO. Firefox is free also.

Hey Jim, have to let us know when Mikey tries it. I have a month old laptop with IE8 and was unsucessful as well. Will advise on how my wife's Ubuntu OS laptop works out as well.

Well the Ubuntu/Firefox version works well to view the available manuals. Did not see the electrical schematic for my Big Country like I hoped. Will have to compare site and my files to see which manuals I can contribute.

I have used Firefox but the print is a bit blurry. Not as clear as IE.

I guess I must be missing something but I am using IE8 and XP on a Toshiba and it seems to work fine on all the tabs.

Sure would like to know how yours is different than mine. IE8 wont open anything but submit a manual. I have all the current updates including Java.

Iwmcguir, wish I could tell you but when my 5yr old dell went up my son gave me his laptop and transferred my files. When something doesn't work I just call him. His favorite saying is " Read the book Dad". Tha's about what I know about a computer. When I read this thread I went and tried the then items you all were talking about and they seemed to work. Sorry can't give you a better answer.

Hey all you Internet Explorer 8 users - give Heartland Owners Manuals (http://manuals.heartlandowners.org)(HOM) another try. LinuxKidd worked it over to make the menu items also clickable. Should be good to go now.

Happy Days! Looks like LinuxKidd tapped his magic wand on IE7, too. Everything works.
