Site usability with Opera


Er, I don't know how many users here like Opera much but I've noticed a slight usability issue with it and this site. The Google ad that apears between the navigation bar at the top and the content of the forums tends to fall in front of the longer drop down menus (like Quick Links). Apologies if I'm repeating a known issue, but a quick search seemed to be negative. If it doesn't bother any of the admins it's not a big deal, just thought I'd let someone know.

There are no bugs about this issue in the LQ bug tracker, and opera's bug tracker didn't let me look at past bugs- perhaps you could post a bug report, perhaps at Opera as well?

Done, and done. Thanks for the link to the bug reporting section. Probably wouldn't even have thought to look for it myself. Hopefully (should the site admins decide to fix it) it will just be a matter of modifying a style sheet. I don't pretend to know enough about CSS to assume, though.

We'll take a look into this. We try to make sure every page at LQ validates with the appropriate specs, but in the real world that's unfortunately often not enough.

Awesome. I'll just wait for a stable release then. Thanks for looking into it.
