Wazoo Posted November 12, 2005 Share Posted November 12, 2005 The next version of this Forum application has brought some complaints from webTV users .. basically, they can read most things, but apparently cannot post, some even stating that the error message that pops up includes the 'unit will power down' message ???? The released/current versiion is 2.1.3 (this forum is still running 2.0.4) .... but here's a post from Matt (the primary programmer for IPB) ... http://forums.invisionpower.com/index.php?...dpost&p=1316087 We are looking at the possibility of adding WebTV support back into IPB, but be aware of the following problems: 1) WebTV is almost obsolete. 2) It's built on NS 4 / IE 4 technology which is almost five years old now. 3) An increasing number of websites will simply fail to work on WebTV I understand your problem, but put simply, we're not going to rewrite large sections of the IPB code to accommodate a single user who refuses to upgrade their gateway to the internet. We will make it so that a future version of IPB reverts to a simple textarea without java scri_pt for non-java scri_pt equipped browsers, but that's about as much as we're going to do. It's just not viable to base the code of IPB on five year old technology - not without sacrificing all the good advancements the internet has made over the past few years. This may make it into IPB 2.1.4 but it's not guaranteed. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
