Hey, guys...I stumbled upon this site looking for some sort of solution to the whole IE7 coding headache. I've been racking my brain ALL DAY on this and cannot find a fix and I really don't want to recode the whole layout because that's not my entire job.

Anyhow...you can grab the code here (www.myspace.com/katharinemcphee). Yes, yes...I know, you may recognize her, but I don't have time for any hate/love comments...she's a client and I just need some way to fix whatever IE7 is doing (which I cannot see because I use a Mac). Apparently, everything is fine in FF and Safari.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!!

Thanks!!

Hello Jarrod23,
Digging through all that crappy code that goes along with a myspace page is pretty tough work! Asking that we "fix whatever IE7 is doing " is pretty vague to say the least so I kind of doubt your going to get much help.

Could you be a little more specific?

p.s. When you provide a link, we can grab the markup/CSS from that. No need to post it.
When you do post code, please use the code tags, &#91;code&#93;&#91;/code&#93; - available with the # button in the post edit window.
This will wrap your code in a scroll box which greatly helps the readability of your post.

Hey, Excavator...

Sorry about posting all of the code :) To be completely honest with you, I haven't the slightest clue what's going on with the code, so I can't be too much more specific. I run a Mac, but don't have the proper software to run Windows-based programs (yet, I'm fixing that problem now).

I usually build out the code in Firefox, and that's the case with the current issue I'm having. The page looks great in Firefox and Safari, yet I had a friend email me today and say that the IE version of this page is all jumbled. I viewed the screenshots sent over, and all that I could tell is that portions of the left column (i.e. Downloads, Contests, etc.), were overlapping over onto the right side.

There is probably more mess in there than I am aware of, yet I'm not really a coder in the slightest so I'm trying my best to make these layouts work for all browsers. All that I can say is take a glance at www.myspace.com/katharinemcphee in Firefox, then in IE7...where you'll see the problems. Any help would be greatly appreciated!!

Thanks again!!

PS--just like your signature says..."build it in Firefox, hack it in IE"....except I'm not a hacker either :)

Hehe - that signature also says not to use tables and to write valid code.

I don't mean to sound glib or to make light of your project but I wouldn't touch that site with a 10foot pole. A total re-write is the only way I would even consider it.


IE8 messes it up too.

You could always just start going through the lists fixing what you can:

Ugh...that's not what I wanted to hear, but I guess I'll just start from scratch.

Lemme ask you this...could I go in and build it out to where it looks nice in IE, take that CSS stylesheet, and point to it if someone loads the page in IE rather than Firefox, Safari, etc.??

If so, I guess I need to bust my *** and figure out how to get IE on my Mac tonight.
