Hi all,
Its my first time here so nice to see you all!
I am having a problem with a website I'm looking after. According to some visitors some of the text links are not appearing.
This is the site
http://www.donaygames.com/
Apparently the text in the links under 'new finds' is invisible, the underline is still there, and the text is there because it can be highlighted, its just not showing up.
The problem only seems to occur in IE7, although it doesnt happen to me or to anyone else I have asked to test it. I have tried finding out what version number of IE7 they have, whether they have any add-ons/toolbars running but no-one who has this problem seems to know a great deal about computers and hasnt been able to tell me anything useful. Which is where you come in! (i hope)
Could anyone who is running IE7 please visit the site, see if the links mentioned above appear and then reply to this post giving me the version number of ie, any toolbars you have running and whether the links appeared or not.
Alternatively if anyone can just tell me what the problem is and save a lot of hassle that would be even better!!

Thanks

Adam

I'm surprised you've not had complaints from IE6 users about the layout

It has been mentioned, getting more & more fed up with IE. Get a site working in one version and it fails in another. I spend more time putting in hacks & fixes for different browsers than i do actually building anything.

thats generally what i do, still have to check it in different versions of IE though which ive not been able to do yet with this site. The other problem with this one is that it was built by someone else originally and the code is all over the place.

Iím using Internet Explorer 7.0.5730.13 (the latest version for Windows XP). The only toolbar that I have installed is the Microsoft Internet Explorer Developer Toolbar.
