Hi Again,
Hopefully this is as easy as the last.... I cannot work out why this is happening as I have not made changes to any of the stroop files, and have imported them directly into the experiment from the library.

The instructions are showing on multiple devices per attached screenshot, and I cannot work out why that might be. It works fine when I run it from the lab, just not on the web.



Once again, thank you for any assistance!
Ellie

Nothing you can do here, that's an Internet Explorer bug, which Inquisit uses to render HTML instruction pages. On some systems, for unclear reasons, IE fails to decompress the HTML before trying to render it. What you see is an artifact of the compression. Only way to work around that is to replace the HTML instructions with something else (i.e. not HTML).

Hi Dave,

Yikes. That sucks. Three different PC's all did the same so I thought it was me. I will replace with an image and run with that.
I did get someone else's stroop to run and it looks like they had their instructions set up the same way (as a htm) and it loaded. So I'm not sure why that might have worked.

Thank you again, especially for such a speedy response.

I wish I knew what specifically causes this (it might be something like a web cache or proxy on the local network, but I'm not sure), For what it's worth, however, here's how the page looks when I run through your Stroop web experiment on the Windows 10 system I'm sitting on:



So, it's not an universal or easily reproducible issue, I'm afraid.

Noted, thanks for checking. I have tried to add an image in place of the htm but turns out it might be more complicated than i thought? The task won't run - keeps crashing back to the editor in the lab, but it's not giving me an error message to work through it.
