View Full Version : IE Problems

12-16-2009, 12:40 PM
Hi, I'm having a little trouble with with while working on my brothers website, it seems to not show my divs in the correct place which is a little frustrating.


I've tried setting the floats different and the widths but the div with the telephone number in it keeps showing below the jquery image when it's supposed to be in the blue.

Any help would be great, thanks

edit: I've also tried display; inline; for all my floats and using a different stylesheet for ie but the problems persist.

I can't see the problem with the phone number in IE6 or 7 - it appears in the blue OK. Maybe you've fixed it since posting earlier.

However your top right menu is not displaying correctly in either IE6/7 - the menu items are staggered rather than line up - try adding:

#nav li{display:inline}

to your css.

Also, in IE6 it looks like you're using pngs with transparent backgrounds - which IE6 doesn't support. Have a look here (http://24ways.org/2007/supersleight-transparent-png-in-ie6) for a possible fix if IE6 is important to you (and it probably is).

Hmm that's odd, I've been using this http://ipinfo.info/netrenderer/index.php to check if it works and it's still not for me.

Also I have my #nav li displayed as block so i can't display inline too right?


p.s the site is uploaded here now http://www.render-uk.com

#nav li isn't set anywhere as block as far as I can see - in any case #nav li a is set as display:block - so inline on #nav li should be fine.

Both pages (old and new link) OK in IE6/7 for me as regards telno - screenshot attached.

Thanks for the attached image, where do you test your browser compatability?

I've changed it like you said hopefully its working fine now.

Browser compatibility - I have IE7 installed as a native browser, plus an IE6 standalone (http://browsers.evolt.org/?ie/win32). The IE6 standalone isn't perfect because it doesn't cope with a few IE6 fixes, but it's fine for layout issues. I've also got IE6 and IE8 installed on virtual machines.

Many people here use IETester (http://www.my-debugbar.com/wiki/IETester/HomePage), which looks good but I've never tried....

There's also browsershots.org (http://browsershots.org/) which'll give you a screenshot of your page in any browser you can think of, and a few that you can't.
