Mike, 

Susan pretty much has creative reign over the website. 

There are no policies that cover the website, therefore the acting secretary has an opportunity to be as creative as they desire as long as ABC policy is not changed.

This does not mean suggestions from the membership are not taken into consideration.

John, what browser are you using and what version, please? Knowing that will help me figure out what you're seeing all the "white space"

OK. It works in chrome and safari, but there seems to be an issue with internet explorer... At least version 11.

I'll keep researching a fix, so people with have an option of either the online interactive version or the printed one.

Update on the interactive breeder's directory.

Some of you may have experienced some display issues if you are on Internet Explorer, v11. Those issues have now been corrected and the interactive breeder's directory should be working cross-browsers.

Just fyi - the sort function is a javascript function, so will not work if you have javascripts disabled (which is the default with Internet Explorer)

If you continue to have issues with the proper display or functionality of the interactive breeder's directory, please let me know by email to samouw@gmail.com. Be sure to include what browser you are on and the version of that browser.

For those that prefer the printed format, the .pdf will continue to be available. I have modifed the print button, so it is easier to find.

I can't see the last line of the last listing (Sharon's) and can't really tell if anyone is supposed to be listed after her or not, as the border obscures her last line.

I'm having display issues also.  Header and first lines seem to be superimposed over Exhibitor points, screen doesn't seem to quite fit, a bit wide, on my screen.  When I hover over the headers, I do not get an arrow or anything like that to show it's clickable, but I can get it to sort anyway.  Perhaps the worse problem is the phone numbers will not display.  I'm using IE 9.

Sharon,

Have you tried to update your IE browser?  Its pretty important to do so, older versions can have bugs and security issues.  You can go here to make sure you are running the most current browser for your windows program.

Hope it helps.

Well, I figured that would be the what was suggested, but I really have problems when I try updating like that, never works, so I just leave it with what it was installed with. 
Besides, is that what we are going to tell everyone who wants to access the breeders directory?  Update your browser?
Most folk don't do that kind of stuff.  Keep things simple so everyone can access the info.

Sharon, if you can find the icon there is still the old PDF format for the Breeders Directory.   Nothing much is simple here any more.

Hi Sharon

I understand about updating your browser. Jean's answer was correct, though, if you want to use the new online interactive directory. But I get antsy every time I have to update something on my computer, so I can understand your reluctance.

The good news is that the online interactive is just additional functionality - it doesn't, nor was it intended to, replace the .pdf file. That is still there. I did make the Print .pdf button larger and, hopefully, more visible.

Hope this helps.
