Where is the PRINT option

By TheChas ·
Hello all,

Have you noticed that the print button has disappeared from the Discussion Forum?

I for one miss it.

It was a very useful feature.

We could browse through a discussion without having to scroll and click for each thread.

I for one, used it to save valued discussions for "posterity"

Give us back our print button!!!!

I beg your pardon?

by jardinier In reply to Where is the PRINT option

It is still working fine in Australia. I have used it on three different computers today.

And as you guys are around 16 hours behind me, that means you will still find it working when you wake up on Wednesday morning.

I don't know if it was a temporary issue but I see a print option in this discussion ?!?

It's not gone, just buggy

by Jay Garmon Contributor In reply to ??

This is an intermittent problem we're trying to track down within our forum pages. The print button is a served image that some combination of browser settings and stylesheet errors apparently omits. We haven't been able to consistently replicate the problem in our dev environment, so we aren't sure how to fix it yet. We'll keep you posted.

I noticed the Print button missing on my Windows 98 box last night.

If it is still missing today, I will post back here and we can check system settings issues.

Basic configuration:
Windows 98 SE
IE 6 SP1
DirectX 9b
Zone Alarm 5 (just upgraded last night)
McAfee AV 7

All security and critical updates are installed.

Not on W98 system

by TheChas In reply to It's not gone, just buggy


The print button shows up just fine on my XP box, but not on my W98 box.

Detailed software setup:

IE 6.0.2800.1106
Updates SP1, Q832894, Q330994, q313829, Q837009, Q831167

Windows script host

JAVA virtual machine 1.4.2_03-b02

McAfee Virus scan 7.03.6000

Zone Alarm Pro 5.0.590.015

The print button does not show up on my W98 system when I use Mozilla either.

If you need more information, I can send you the Belarc Profile, or gather any specifics that you need.

One solution

by GuruOfDos In reply to It's not gone, just buggy

Right click the browser print, then choose 'all linked pages'. Works fine on '95 and '98 and my 3.11 box :-)

98, ME, and 2K

by jardinier In reply to It's not gone, just buggy

The print icon is fine on my 98 and ME computers, as well as the 2k which I can use at lunchtime in the cafe where I eat.

On my 98 I have the latest version of TrendMicro Security Suite.
