    Hello Team-COW,

    I think since the new look COW Shed, I’ve not been able to remove the “X” and, I’m assuming, as a result post any Graphics in Support of Vegas Users needing assistance. However I can Reply to Vegas Users, but I just discovered I can’t add those all important Support Graphics. When I do attempt to add Graphics I get this: https://i2.creativecow.net/u-upload.php

    Please advise.

    Much appreciated,

    Graham “Grazie” Berrnard

    I have the same problem. I’ve only recently returned to the forums, and I believe I’m being moderated for the time being. But does that prevent my clicking on the “Cookies” message and closing it?

    same bug here
    Until it’s fixed try this sequence

    In your browser do this:

    F12 = “open DevTools”
    Ctrl+Shift+C = “Select an element on the page to inspect it”

    now hover you mouse over the offending full black box div bug on the Cow page
    and click once so it is selected in DevTools

    type “h” = > to HIDE the offending div
    et voila

    NOTE: I am using Google Chrome browser on Win10 but similar applies for Firefox et alia]

    Hi Jason! Does this “fix” allow you to post Graphics? I can’t presently do it.

    I don’t know, sorry
    I just logged into Creative Cow for very first time in many years.

    What I _do know, is that in these times, opening DevTools can be really useful. It’s not just for web developers and debugging, but for anyone us all – getting visually harrassed by any endless popups, toxic vendor exceses, chatbot coercions, paywall steamrollers, and fixing lousy design decisions on the fly etc.

    I wish i was fluent in Google DevTools. It’s brilliant what you can do with it.

    Hi Jason,

    Great tip! Here’s a mousier approach, too:

    — Right click on the banner, click Inspect.
    — This opens the code in a fly-out window to the right, with the element highlighted. Next to the highlighted “div style”, you’ll see three dots. Click those.
    — A drop-down menu appears: click “Hide Element”. Done!

    Except it has to be done for each page. Yikes!

    This is a roundabout way of acknowledging that yes, this is broken. As you may have noticed from the many new pages around the COW (starting with our home page, creativecow.net), we’re doing a lot of work to make updates, with a few breakages along the way.

    Both this and the image upload are actually related to changes in Javascript on the AWS side. (Any of you dealing with Amazon hosting know that this sort of thing happens with appalling regularity.) We’re going pedal to the metal to get the new pages up, which will take care of these problems of course, but I’m going to see if I can’t at least get that banner turned off for now.

    Stay tuned for more updates!

    Regards,
    Tim
