Every time I try and log into Code project it crashes, get picture of the bugs, OK that's neat but fed up seeing it!
Using IE9 on Window 7 64 bit - no other problems seen with IE9 or system, just Code project
Have exited, cleared cache etc.
Just noticed that one of the crashed attempts at logging in must have actually worked as I'm logged in. So maybe its not the logging in but what the web page does after log in!
Update 2 Seems to work with Chrome better! No crash
As a note:
Code project use to be great, now its difficult and hard to use just like VS 2012.
The badly designed Metro interface makes it nearly impossible to find things without resorting to trial clicks all over the place - just finding the log in on the home page is near impossible - even when you find 'You need to be signed in' the link is badly contrasted nearly as bad as Windows 8. Metro look is not CP's fault - but using it is!
Please ditch the Metro look it doesn't work -or a least tone it down so that its at least usable!
I use IE9 on Win7 64bit extensively and unfortunately can't reproduce the issue. Since you say you are seeing the Mad Hamsters error page it means it's a server (our) issue, not something your end. On that error screen there should be a ticket number. Can you please send that ticket number to me next time you see it? I'm looking at the error logs and not seeing anything relevant.
...to see implemented as a "standard", especially since CPHog is not working anymore with the new layout, and me being too occupied at the moment for modifying it:
When I have the number of messages per page set on say 25, and the 25th is not the last answer of the thread, would it possible to additionally display the answers of this specific thread ?
In clear text : do not display n messages per page, but n+number of messages belonging to the last thread.

This is a glitch found while looking through the notifications presented on more than one page and deleting some of them.
At least one of the ways to reproduce:
Have notifications enabled.
Collect some notifications so the list of them can take more than one page to display. In my observations, 22 was enough.
Put mouse on the notification number in the right top corner of the page; and then click "View all notifications".
The above step should cause loading of the page with notification list, paged.
Below the notification list, click the anchor with the last available page, load it.
On this last page of the notification list, check the check box representing the last notification, and then click "Mark Selected As Read" button.
Repeat the previous step until the page shows "No notifications".
At this point, we already have inconsistency: we still have the list of notifications which is supposed to be shown on the first page (or more), but there is no a page list as well. "No notification" statement is not true.
Reload the page obtained on the previous step. Nothing changes.
Work-around: repeat the item 3 again. It will show the list of notifications which were not removed on previous steps.
In my opinion, this is not critical at all, but can be confusing; should better be fixed.
I auto-login when I visit CP, usually by clicking CP's icon that I put on Chrome's "BpokMark Bar," which takes me to the Lounge. And, I do not block any cookies from CP, although I do block sites like lakequincy.com which adverts in the CP daily newsletters link to, because it's included in the MVPs Host file I use.
I use Internet Download Manager (IDM), and recently they achieved nearly full integration with Chrome (they've had it working in IE for years).
So, when the behind-the-scenes whatever in CP triggers that download, IDM attempts to handle the download, and it fails, perhaps because it uses the default username and password settings ? Why that download would require username and password when it's being triggered while I am logged in to CP: well, I don't have a clue, I'm just reporting what I observe in IDM when I examine the failed download's properties.
Since this failed download does not occur regularly, but is occurring frequently, and doesn't seem to affect my use of CP in any way, I am not complaining, or saying this is a bug.
To me, it's just puzzling, and I thought I'd report it here just for your information.
CP is the only site I visit where this type of failed .aspx download occurs, and I use to Chrome to visit many sites that are running on some flavor of ASP.NET.
I've notified tech support at IDM about the strange download scenario here.
fyi: since my logging to CP, after a computer restart: in the first 22 minutes of using CP via Chrome, there have been two attempts to download the CP .aspx file: 'Preview.aspx:' both were "intercepted" by IDM, and both, as described previously, failed to complete.
1. the first failed download came from my viewing, or editing, my answer to a QA question: it shows a "referrer" url of:
I said it looked more like a Tip and marked it as that, but when I looked over at previous competitions, there were some pretty rotten articles, but good applications as winners of previous feature competitions.
But I agree with you actually... Or they could just create an own tag for those "articles".
This article is an entry in our AppInnovation Contest. Articles in this sub-section are not required to be full articles so care should be taken when voting.
We're kind of hijacking the article system in order to create a place to post entries, and we're not asking that all entries be full articles. In some cases members simply can't post full source code, and in some cases the entry is a sketch or prototype.
However, when we judge which articles get through Round 1 we're definitely going to take into account the quality of the articles and the level of detail provided, and once the comp is over all non-articles will be removed.
When I try to hover the mouse from the red square with the number of notifications to the notifications link menu that appears just under the square it is almost impossible to reach the menu as it disappears again before reaching the menu itself. This also is happening hovering the user name to get into "My Settings...".
...is too small, too orange and doesn't show up as well as the old one did. A Red flag works - "red-flagging somthing" is easy to understand, but a orange flag doesn't have the same conotations. That doesn't encourange people to report spam and abuse in the same way the old one did.
