Having Issues with the Website?

In early 2013, we made significant changes to the SNAPS, Inc. and Idaho Wednesday's Child websites. The purpose of the changes is primarily twofold: first, we wanted to make the website more friendly to mobile devices, and second, we wanted to update the code to meet more modern standards (it is now primarily coded using html5/css3).

That said, there's a chance you may be seeing something weird with the website (before anything, try refreshing your browser window). If you are, you are likely using an old web browser. All current browsers should view the site normally: Internet Explorer 9 and above and the latest versions of Safari, Firefox and Chrome have all been tested. Here are issues you may experience:

  • Internet Explorer 7 & 8 - these browsers were never very standards compliant. If you are running Windows XP, you are likely running one of these two browsers. The sites have been tested in IE8 and should work fine. IE7 may have some layout issue that could be an annoyance, but you should still be able to access all information. We recommend upgrading to Internet Explorer 8, or downloaded the latest version of Google Chrome.
  • Internet Explorer 6 and below - You may be running an old operating system and an old version of Internet Explorer. The site may or may not be usable for you. We recommend trying Firefox or Chrome to see if one of those will work.
  • Older versions of Safari, Firefox and Chrome - If you are running really old versions of these browsers, we recommend upgrading to the newest version possible of that browser.

If you are viewing the site on an iPhone/iPad or Android device, you should have no issues at all. If you do, please visit our Contact SNAPS page and send us a message so we can take care of any issues you may be having.
