Looks like the 3.0 version of Mostphotos is going up. Their site seems to be down at the moment.

I wonder why it is taking so long?  I hope it is worth the wait.  They need more buyers and having the shop closed for several days in the middle of the week wont help.

Holy cow! I made a sale there finally! LOL. First day of the new site up too. I like this version MUCH BETTER. Looks like a real agency for once. I've got some rekindled hopes for this agency.

The search is broken for me at the moment.  Hope it is fixed quickly.

I can't see new uploads on the front page any more.  Perhaps that wasn't a good idea for a site with no reviews but I do think there needs to be more links to good new images displayed on the front page.  Perhaps the highest rated images of the week could be displayed?

It looks like all my pictures are missing...  :(

I can't find a single one of them even in my profile.

I am using IE.8 Version:8.0.6001.18702 upgraded automatically by the MS updates, and I get the following message.

Quote
Your browser is unsupported
Mostphotos no longer supports Internet Explorer 6. Please upgrade your browser to a later version.

My registry entries match the information above so why I an getting the message is confusing, and how can I upgrade from the current version IE 8.

Also this is a bad move as where I am contracting they are not allowed to upgrade their browsers to IE.8 or install other browsers like FireFox, they have a lot of older legacy software so do not allow users just to upgrade browsers and control the updates.

Enough is enough. Microsoft Internet Explorer 6 was released in late 2001. For its time, it was a decent browser, but in 2009, it is still in use by a significant portion of the web population, and its time is now up.

So in 2009 it is still in use by a significant portion of the web population, and they can 'upgrade' or go elsewhere to buy images, why would anyone not support a browser with a significant number of users is beyond belief, and I wonder which option they will choose as many users do not know how or cannot just upgrade thier personal PC or company workstation?

I am a web developer and I stopped "supporting" ie 6 about six months ago, and I am so relieved -- a HUGE weight lifted.  ie6 is, and always was, a horrible browser.  It was the heights of Microsoft's "we're going to force everyone to use our software" phase.  You either designed a site for ie6 or for everyone else. They thumbed their nose at the www beauro of standardization and it was the primary reason for the anti-trust suits.

According to Google, only less than 20% of web viewers use ie6, so, YES, it is time to accelerate it's demise.  Because it was never web-standard complaint, a lot of today's features just won't work on ie6.  This leave the web developer who wants to take advantage of web-standard features with the pain of building 2 pages -- one for ie6 and one for everyone else.

Having said that, all my sites will "work" on ie6.  They might not look good, and some boxes may be jumbled, and certain features are disabled, but I do make sure they are workable.  I still warn everyone that accesses one of my pages with ie6 that they are using an unsupported browser and urge them to update.  I include links to all the modern browsers.  Anyone can easily upgrade with only a few clicks.  But should they decide not to (or in some extreme corporate cases, can not update) the site is still functional.  Perhaps MostPhotos is similar?  Are you sure it actually does not work, or are you just getting the warning?

As for those companies that force their employees to use only ie6 -- that is mostly out of laziness on their part, and if enough employees complain to their lazy IT departments, maybe they get off their butts and bring their company up-to-date.

Problem is I am on IE.8, the MostPhotos website is seeing my browser as IE.6, I even went through the whole IE.8 install again with the same result.

I cannot be the only visitor to MostPhotos that will be getting this error which is from a third party service.

Windows XP Pro and IE.8 being seen as IE.6

This is the page my IE.8 is ending up on http://www.mostphotos.com/ie6

well, David, I don't blame you for being ticked.  I didn't realize you were using ie8.  The only excuse I can think of is that they had the detection script set for ie8 for testing, and forgot to change the code back to read ie6.

I looked at the code for their index page, but it contains php code which is implemented on the server end, so by the time I see it and do a view source all the php code has been implemented.  The certainly don't do this the way I do -- and I'm NOT saying my way is better.  I don't send them to a different page, I just add a warning to the page in question and they can see if their browser will work or not.  They way they're doing in, in a case like yours, you have no option.

Mikie is a good coder, and I'm sure he will fix this soon.  Have you sent MostPhotos a site mail or email about this problem?

Hello, we had some problems with IE8 telling us that they where IE6 but it is solved now.
We had a long discussion about if we should keep IE6 support or drop it but we looked over our visitor history and we talked to our clients and we came to the conclusion that we would not miss out on any large nr of sales and we will have a lot more over time to make the site even better.
All pages need to start blocking / telling users to upgrade to help the web evolve. There where a lot of errors on the page if you use IE6 so we decided to send them to a page that will display the way it should and where we could explain why we can't let them on the site.

PLEASE go back to the old upload/tagging methodology! This non-batch approach is very unattractive, the old system is what kept many uploading there.

It sounds like bugs are being ironed out over there still, like a delete button for uploaded images.

Hey, what kind of problems are you having with the delete feature?
I haven't received any bug reports on it.
