The problem with the accordion function, however, is that as soon as the user clicks on on of the recent answers links, the page will load and the recent answers column will reset back to the bottom. Not very user-friendly. So I figured I’d add a dash of ajax and make the recent answers links load on the screen without a page refresh. I found another handy tutorial on Nettuts that did just that. But the source code appears to have gone through a number of revisions, with the final version incompatible with the current versions of IE7 and Safari. Looks great on Firefox though!
With the addition of all of the new fancy effects, I also decided that qrisper would no longer support IE6. So I created a redirect page for those poor souls still using that wretched browser. I’ve been using IETester to test qrisper on IE6. Worked pretty well.
