Can still get out with ESC key

Turns out there is a clickable area, but it does not line up with the image/text, it is a bit below the close area and is too small.

When modifying my member profile there is no way to change my Country which is currently set to United States.

That is in the store profile, not the forum btw.

Hey,

Calculate shipping does not work for me if I have SparkFun Inventor's Kit for Arduino or SparkFun Inventor's Kit for Arduino with Retail Case in my cart. All I get is this line:
undefined: €NaN
which appears several times.

If I remove the inventor's kit from my cart, calculate shipping works.

I have noticed that if your shipping or billing address (in my case, the town/city) has an diacritical mark, as many French-named cities in Canada have, it is displayed as "null."

Hopefully this could be fixed to reduce confusion?

News items are being listed all out-of-order on http://www.sparkfun.com/news.

What's expected: News items to be listed chronologically, from most recent at the top to longest ago at the bottom.

What's happening: News items are ordered by some other means, it seems to be the number in the URL, from largest number at the top to smallest number at the bottom.

Right now, the dates read:
February 24, 2011
February 23, 2011
February 22, 2011

Again, it appears to me that the posts are ordered by the number in the URL, which does not necessarily correlate to the date. If I had to take a guess, news items are not necessarily published immediately, but they do get assigned one of these numbers immediately, and as a result a lower number only means that the post started being written longer ago, but wasn't necessarily published longer ago. I don't know if that's how your system works or not, but I've seen other systems that work similarly to this.

This bug makes finding certain news posts very difficult. Thankfully, there's a search feature!

In general though, great work as always! Been watching your site like a hawk, I have to spend my free-day money soon (plus some from my bank account, my wish list has gotten lengthy). Not to be off-topic, but any chance you guys might carry solenoids soon? If so, I'll almost definitely add them to my next order.

EDIT: Sorry about the off-topic part at the end there, I really wanted to put something more positive than just "you guys should fix this."

Plenty of ways to solve that one
--- 8< --- 8< --- 8< --- 8< --- 8< ---
At some point this did indeed get solved - looks like the javascript now changes the class of the prices from "price" to "price calculated", so that the script responsible for currency conversions doesn't do its magic on them more than once.

I know I'm the new guy but I can't register for an account on Sparkfun.
Using Firefox I get a time out error after just two seconds.


Sorry it was a work filtering issue. I tried from home with no problems.

When I choose an address , and press 'calculate shipping' , it loops for several minutes (with the two circle array on the web page moving).
After that the address is displayed in grey , but no shipping fees are displayed and If I pressed 'check out' , nothing happens. :(
I'm using Firefox 3.6 on win xp sp2.

Edit: after some several tries , I got a new page telling me that there's something wrong with the sipping quotes. It advices me to check my postal address (that never changed :)

Edit 2 : it's working now. Thnaks ;-)
Same. Except I never got it working :S

This appears to be affecting me now too. Not sure if everyone is seeing it or just me?

Makes my daily ritual of checking for new products a bit difficult.
