Since the implementation of the new site design, I am unable to post and reply when using Internet Explorer 11.
The text boxes are simply not showing.
Anyone else seeing this?

It actually seems related to Arie H's topic WordPress rendering for mobileMay 26, 2016 at 2:39 pm #40369
For reference, this is what I see when looking at this thread in IE 11:May 26, 2016 at 2:54 pm #40371
Interesting. I've no idea whatsoever why it would do that. Let me spin up a VM and see what I can figure out. Meantime, please do make sure you're not running any blockers or filters that might be causing it.May 26, 2016 at 2:58 pm #40378
Confirming that Edge works for me. Wow, they _really_ want you to use Edge, too. Still trying to find IE11.May 26, 2016 at 3:03 pm #40383
If you look at the page source, you should be able to search for:
[div class="bbp-reply-form" id="new-reply-40362"][form name="new-post" id="new-post" action="http://powershell.org/forums/topic/unable-to-post-reply-when-using-internet-explorer-11/" method="post"]
(I've replaced angle brackets with square brackets so they'll render here). Can you confirm that you're seeing this in the page source? It's the reply form. I realize IE11 isn't rendering it, but want to make sure you're seeing the same source HTML that I am.May 26, 2016 at 3:14 pm #40385
Nope ... from the looks of it, that is not in the source.
I just checked from another computer as well (same versions), and the problem shows there as well.May 26, 2016 at 3:15 pm #40387
Guys, I've no clue. I'm seeing the reply form in the raw HTML, and IE11's inspector isn't showing any CSS style that's preventing it from displaying. In fact, the inspector is showing the reply form area as having a visible size on the page, but it clearly isn't rendering. I've lodged a support request with the theme developer to see if they have any advice. Meantime, all I can suggest is using another browser.May 26, 2016 at 3:20 pm #40391
That's super-odd. Because I'm definitely seeing it in the source on IE 11. Can you triple-check? Maybe enable Developer Tools (F12) and use the Inspector?May 26, 2016 at 3:21 pm #40394
Will do ... thanks DonMay 26, 2016 at 3:25 pm #40396
Just checked again, and you are right ... it does show in the source.
Sorry about that.May 26, 2016 at 3:34 pm #40400
Just experimented turning off our caching and optimization plugins, and it had no effect. I'm chalking this up to an IE quirk or bug; we'll see what our theme developer has to offer in way of advice. Sorry guys... hopefully Chrome or Edge is a viable workaround until it's resolved.May 26, 2016 at 4:01 pm #40404
No worries ... hope a solution can be found, but will use alternative browsers until then 🙂May 26, 2016 at 7:27 pm #40414
well IE 11 isn't working but there's a workaround.
Add powershell.org to the list of URLs in the Compatible view Settings and Voila, you have the missing section up.
Its how I'm writing this comment.
I dont use IE 11 on win 10 as I prefer Edge which is why I initially didn't notice this happening on IE 11 as well
Now to try and work this on my phone.
by the way note that the site looks a bit messy with compatible view on but at least you can post 😉May 26, 2016 at 7:30 pm #40419
Arie, any idea exactly what "Compatible" does differently? That might clue me in to what's actually wrong.
