Floating, expandable, dragable tagboard problem.
i aptly name it so, here's my problem and god help me!!!

i have a Tagboard that uses an iframe (quite duh!); i placed taht into an expandable content script (ok so far), then i placed it into a floating menu script from DD (now soemthing goes wrong).

i wanted the tagboard to follow teh user around the page, and perhaps minimize if the user doesn't wnat to us the tagboard or if it gets in the way. instead...when the tagboard is expanded, and i scroll (even a little), my IE hangs! :eek: plz help me resolve this...here's where i placed the whole thing into action...http://unlimitedinfinity.com
another note: the whole thing is in a PHP page. (i modified my phpBB theme to do this... :p )

Weird, works fine in Mozilla. The page is too wide for a 1024x768 resolution though.

You can selectively disable it or parts of it for IE. It seems that it is only a problem when floating and open. We could try disabling the float while open in IE and see if that gets it. One way of doing this is to test for IE:

Set this variable available to all code you will be doing this to:
var agt=navigator.userAgent.toLowerCase();Then within a function:
if(agt.indexOf("msie")==-1){
code for all other browsers goes here
{
else{
Code for IE or, if none, use - return;
}In regular script, outside of all functions:
if(agt.indexOf("msie")==-1){
code we are hiding from IE
}

You also might want to try an alternate floating script:
