What happens[edit]

Everytime I click a different link on Wikitravel the list of links at the top switches between the left and right side of the screen. The links I'm referring to are - "(User name)", "my talk," "preferences," "my watchlist," "my contributions," and "log out." I'm using Microsoft Internet Explorer "version 6.0.2800.1106.xpsp2.030320-1720" (If that makes any sense) Sapphire 14:33, 8 April 2006 (EDT)

Are you making that up? Is that really the version number? Good grief. I don't know what to do with that ("Oh, we've had problems with version 6.0.2800.1105.xpsp2.030320-1720, but I thought those had be corrected in version 6.0.2800.1106.xpsp2.030320-1437"). Anyways, when you load a new page in Wikitravel, the "personal links" up at the top get "personalized" with your own name and information. If it is a large page and/or a slow computer, it can take a second and "flash" a bit when it's done. Is that what you're talking about? Or do the links appear at the left (near the Wikitravel logo) on some pages, and at the right (near the right margin) on other pages? --Evan 20:57, 8 April 2006 (EDT)
Unfortunately, I wasn't making it up. I clicked the "About Internet Explorer" option and that's what it gave me. I thought it was a joke, but listed it exactly as it gave me. No, it's not a flashing thing. When I mentioned this on your talk page it the links were to the left and stayed there for about five minutes until clicked on an article. This has been happening for about a day, and at first I didn't think much about, but as it has continued I thought I should mention. Currently, the links are back to the right.

I've left my pc in hibernation mode for over 8 hours while I was at work and the problem seems to have gone away. Sapphire 00:43, 9 April 2006 (EDT)
I have this problem every now and then, both on swedish Wikitravel as well as swedish Wikipedia. MediaWiki software bug? I think someone needs to check this. 03:32, 11 April 2006 (EDT)
