    Default Duplicating Words at the End of Lines

    Have any of you had this issue where at the end of a line on your post the last word repeats? I know I didn't type it twice. Weird.

    Yes, I have seen it many times. It seems to happen randomly.

    I'm glad it wasn't just me! Here's an example for those who haven't noticed it:

    Just to revive this thread a bit, the problem is still there. I noticed it in two places a few minutes ago:

    Hello beautiful Miami

    Casual Place for a big group (20-25)

    In the first link, my post, the word "hectic" is repeated at the end of the first line. In the second link, Maria's post, the word "mingle" is repeated.

    rk, I don't see either word repeated twice as you described. Are they still there?

    Very interesting, that means the repeating word is a display problem at the user end, though could still be due to buggy html produced by vb.

    Yes, I still see it, here's screen capture (IE9 and Win7 64-bit, look at the word hectic at the end of the first line, and start of the second line):

    OK, narrowed it down some more. The words do not repeat when viewed with Firefox or Chrome.

    Then I noticed my IE9 was set to "compatibility view" by accident. When I disable that, the repeating words problem got fixed.

    So it would seem to be a bug in IE's "compatibility view" feature. If anyone notices it, have them get out of compatibility mode.

    Furthermore, those oddities I had seen in the menu I mentioned in the other thread also went away when I got out of compatibility view mode.

    I'm glad that was it... I was literally trying all my browsers and I have it off in my IE9 the placement is different I barely noticed it at first rk it took a week or so then I said ohh there's the button but long story short I couldn't repeat this issue but now that I've clicked "Compatibility View" it came right up .

    rk, thanks for solving the issue.

    Microsoft has some information about enabling and disabling the compatibility view feature with in certain websites - http://support.microsoft.com/kb/956197

    It's also starting to feel like the vBulletin software is getting more and more temperamental, about the strangest things.

    Would not blame vb for this one. It's 100% IE compatibility view at fault.

    I appreciate you saying that.

    I don't want Mike to think I'm complaining about our favorite forum software.

    Well admittedly it's my favorite too and the reason why I solely work on vBulletin forums... I guess you can say in this area of life I'm very resistant to change . I do know that the current list of bugs in vBulletin has more related to IE(7/8)than any other browser in the vBulletin tracker... seems IE9 does not have so many as before (noting the improvements we've all seen and FINALLY rounded corner css usage!) however imo IE has issues in any forum software more so than any other browser.

    Edit: Also never hesitate to ask if something is a bug, it could be and if not added to the vBulletin tracker I surely will and hopefully it will be resolved in the next version or if possible we can implement the fix here immediately .

    I haven't noticed the duplicating words lately. I also suspect that it's a display issue on the user end, though I'm no techie!

    Doug, definitely a bug in IE compatibility mode. You can see it as follows:

    Go to one of the posts which shows the problem, e.g. the following post by Maria:

    Casual Place for a big group (20-25)

    Notice the word "mingle" at the end of the first sentence. Now, click on the "compatibility view" button in the IE toolbar, and suddenly you'll see "mingle" repeated twice, Click on the "compatibility view" again, the second mingle goes away.

    Here's a picture oh what the "compatibility view" button looks like in IE8:

    Be sure to leave the compatibility button in the off state to avoid future display problems.

    Thanks, rk. I've been using Firefox almost exclusively now. Has anyone tried out the new Google Chrome? I wonder if that's better.
