Wish I could flip a switch for ya, but all I can tell you is to switch browsers again.  Also try to click compatability mode to see if it helps al all.




Hmmm....Yeah works with Google Chrome browser,  I am on it now.  Idk....Are you guys even sure what the problem is and why it wont work for Explorer Browser??

It's the coding of the site somewhere, probably an update was done on the site that broke IE.  Afraid I'm not involved with the coding team at all. 

Just a computer guy that has coded waaaaay too much and has seen this movie many times before.

 I think they gave up on fixing the quote button.  Thus, they are encouraging plagiarism. 

I will just put their thoughts in bold and quotations since the IT team is too incompetent and lazy to fix the problem.  Yet they  excel in installing the annoying pop-up ads.

Look up Paul Lynde on youtube and pay your respects, rookie.  His Bewitched scenes as Uncle Arthur and Hollywood Squares zingers are what every comedian should aspire to.

 Site also regularly freezes up.  It used to work fine and wasn't broken, but someone got the wise idea to try to fix it.

after I switched to Google Chrome (which in my opinion is a far better browser) the Quote button issue has gone away

This is a huge problem for me as well. Covers is by far the worst working site that I frequently visit. I'll click on a thread and it freezes up for a minute, so I have to click the back button and try again, and again...errrrr, and again. Usually, I just give up, leave and come back later and do the  whole procedure over again. I am using Chrome w/ AdBlocker. I have also tried FireFox with the same results. Although I don't see any Ads, I am going to assume they are the problem. I love Covers, but it has gotten to the point where it's just too frustrating to even visit this site. Visiting Covers feels like I have been transported back in time to the days of dial up. Not a good look.

The site's moderators... hats off.  Job well done.


The site's IT gang.... geezus.


Feel likes a 5 or 6 year old is behind the 1's & 2's of this place sometimes.  


Or I wonder if an IT department even exists?  


@ my work, I am only accessible to IE  -  so I gave up on it and use Covers Mobile.  When quoting, I use the codes.  Here, have a look:

You can copy & paste and use this to quote other members until this is fixed.  DO NOT include the -


The - is used as a spacer.  It starts with [ and ends with ]

"I'll click on a thread and it freezes up for a minute, so I have to click the back button and try again, and again."

Hit F5 to refresh the page before hitting the back arrow.  This solves that problem, but becomes a headache over time.
