QB Express Celebrates One Year: Issue #12 Released
QB Express Issue #12 has been released, which marks the magazine's one year anniversary!

In this special issue, we look back over the past year of QB Express and give special recognition to QB Express's contributors. Adigun A. Polack brings us two retrospective articles on QB Express's first twelve issues, and I also share my thoughts on QB Express's first year.

Other articles include reviews of The Griffon Legend, Pixel Snake Gem Hunt and Trek, "The Evolution of GUIs" by MystikShadows, QB GUI news by Jacob Palm, two articles about the forum community and an interview with Nekrophidius. Tutorials include Part 6 of Na_th_an's I.F. series, Music Composition Pt. 3 by Matt2Jones, dumbledore's second FB WX-C tutorial, "Useful QB Algorithms" by Moneo, a tutorial on Database Design by MystikShadows, and "Coding a Parallax Scrolling Platformer Chapter #2" by Na_th_an. This is the largest issue of QB Express ever, weighing in at nearly 150 pages!

Check it out: QB Express Issue #12

Sorry maybe it is only my problem. but i've got some large gray bars on the page right upon the text so i can't read most of information.
I use Firefox
P.S. after saving page on my HDD everything went good (but without images also) so i think there is a problem with your css table

The grey boxes are a known problem.. they haunt QBE Tongue
I almost never have grey boxes (I use a56K modem) and they disappear when I hit reload. It's not a problem with QBE's css, as they can appear or not depending on no one knows what.

Is a thing you have to live with.. Firefox gives grey boxes, and IE6 freezes...
I use firefox...and I just have to refresh/reload the page a couple of times and it works. And one time, I pressed the middle mouse button to scroll, and the boxes all disappeared and the code appeared.... Smile

A middle mouse button click works almost 100% of the time for me. Just scroll-wheel-click in the margin on either side of the gray box and it almost always disappears.

Anyway, Antoni's right about it not being a CSS error. The gray boxes appear at random. Sometimes they appear, sometimes they don't. I've been told the problem is a documented bug in the Gecko rendering engine of FireFox.

Of course, if someone figures out an alternate method of making pre-formatted code boxes that don't screw up the layout, we'll all be eternally grateful. A lot of people have tried, but nobody's come up with a better solution yet.

To Pete and all contibutors of QB Express:

Up front, I want to *truly* congratulate all of you for making the first 12 issues of QB Express the absolute best there ever is in FreeBASIC/QuickBASIC magazine publication history, and for that, my hats are totally off to all of you!!! d=Big Grin=b !

One concern though, Pete: in the QB/FB Site of the Year announcement, there was a problem in the way that I wrote it when it was published for this 12th issue of your mag. It is not your fault, however. Rather, the little clickable text problem was in the way that I tried setting up the linked text and bolding it simultaneously! Silly me there ( :oops: ! ). Other than that though, man, a lot of the articles and text styles within them ran perfectly!! Cool

All in all, congrats on the first phenomenally successful year of QB Express, and be seeing you all real soon!!! :king:

Opening up the sidebar works for me, whether it is as small or large as it can get. The ColorZilla Firefox extension doesn't pick up on the grey color, so this further proves that it isn't the CSS (for those who were still in doubt).

Edit: I should've checked out the entire page. . . I'm not sure why this happens, but I'll experiment with it. . .

Edit (deja-vu?): It's the #bigcode. . . The "overflow: auto" is causing the problem. I don't know why it's even in there. In IE6 (WinME), no overflow is being rendered because there is no height set, thus there is no need for it.

Woot, I got mentioned in it, although I have completely forgotten talking to Nek about it. (the second mention of me, that is. This must have been way more than 2 years ago in an "offhand" statement.. imagine what politicians must deal with)
Peace cannot be obtained without war. Why? If there is already peace, it is unnecessary for war. If there is no peace, there is already war."
