running vista downloaded ie8 everything fine , only when using this site i have to run it in compatiblity mode , is this because this site is not compatible with ie8

  Forum Editor 17:43 25 Mar 09

Our site is compatible with IE8 - I'm using it myself, as are many other forum members.

Why do you feel you have to run in compatibility mode?

"screen goes blue for about ten seconds then page loads ok"

It works better in compatibility mode on IE8 for me too. No other site I use have this issue

Upgraded to IE8 and had similar blue screen problem. Now having to us compatibility mode on this website.

The same applies when using Google Chrome on this website.

Revert to IE7.0 until 8 is sorted. Not worth worrying about.

I use (in fact using it now) Chrome, and the site runs perfectly normal - nice and quickly in fact with Chrome.

I also experience e the blue screen flash in IE 8, but it hasn't concerned me - it's there for a second or so, and doesn't interfere with my use of the site.

Development work on the PCA site has to take its place in a queue - we operate many other sites, and the development team work on them in strict rotation. We'll deal with this minor glitch when out turn comes around.
