Bug: Bullet List Affects Wrong Box

I click on the Sidebar & hit Bulleted List and it bullets the Teaser box. Even if I write some text into the Sidebar box and click on Bulleted List it bullets the Teaser.

Everything seems fine in my sidebars, I just happened to be working on one when I read this message.  Bullets, links, Ctrl-A all OK.  Markt is taking one for for all of us.

It could be that I'm running low on memory or something.... I'm gonna try again immediately after a reboot.

Dunno... I think this may be the first time I'm editing a sidebar since upgrading. Let me reboot.

Yep, even just after a reboot it's like this. I'm using Windows Me.

Which version of IE?

Michael H. Pryor

Version 5.50.4134.0100

This IE does act strangely though... When I hover over a link it says "Shortcut to default.asp" or "Shortcut to fog000000064.html at www.fogcreek.com" rather than the full link address in the status bar.

I was hoping to upgrade, and I may upgrade to 6.x.

Are you always this high energy?  Maybe throttle back on the stimulants, if any. <g>

Who did the graphic at the top of your web page?

I'm not that high energy. Am I?

The graphic on the top of my page is taken from a photo by Diana Yee (the credit is on every page near the bottom). She manipulated the photo a bit -  the doubling & the squiggles are from her. I cropped it and colored it in a bit.

The whole photo is me sitting on a window sill playing bass.

About the stimulants... I'm really sensitive to anything. A little sugar will keep me up all night. I'm more sensitive to foods than anyone I know, so I try to avoid anything overly stimulating.

I had a little soda with dinner tonight because it came with the Chinese Food and was easier to grab than the water in the kitchen. It's maybe the third time this month I've had soda. I don't drink coffee.

That's a great job on the photo.  I was just giving you a hard time about all the posts.  No harm intended.  Did I mention I like the photo?

Cool. I use this filter called Aetherize on it, which made it grayscale and translucent. Then I put colored boxes behind it Beige / Blue.

I have the original image on my hard drive if you're interested in seeing it.

I experience the same behaviour as was mentioned by Mark:

inserting bulleted or numbered lists or link in the sidebar results ending up in the teaser

I'm making use of non-profit template provided by Darren

OS : Windows 98 Dutch version
IE : 5.50.4134.0600

I never mentioned my OS, did I? Windows Me.

Mark, you should upgrade to Windows 2000. (No real need, yet, for the Fisher Price version also known as Windows XP.)

Jorgen - I would love to, but for some reason the guys who make my sound card (which I use for home recording) don't make the drivers for 2000. I know they were available at one point as a beta, but I can't download them now.

If I got those I would definately upgrade.

As it is I'm stuck between the Windows 9x variants and XP. I wish 2000 were an option, but it's not.

Don't know why but it seems to sort of work now... Though the Link dialogue box was still acting funky - I'd highlight a link and click on it and the box would come up empty. But CTRL +A worked on it.

Yeah, I'd like to see it.  Do you do any graphics work or just an avocation?

I do some design work, it's a hobby that turned into a profession and then back into a hobby.

This is the image as I got it.

I love the smoke strings.  She does very nice work... but you already know that!

Yes she does. I'll pass the message onto her.
