View Full Version : IE Stacks images when they should be side by side

Oct 21st, 2010, 07:14 PM
I am trying to edit my image viewer on my site, but for some reason it works perfectly in chrome, safari and Firefox, but IE is giving me one issue. The images are being stacked vertically (one on to of the other) rather than show up all in one row horizontally. This is making my page longer in IE and just does not look the way I want it to..Any ideas at to what could cause this?

here is a link to test the issue...I have tried everything that I know how to do, but have had no success..http://www.jewelryboxavenue.com/Oceana-Blue-Jewelry-Box_p_58.html

The markup on your page is very confused, for instance you have two body tags, and many other errors. I suggest you validate your page first.

i thought I got rid of that second body tag yesterday, but when i reverted to an old page today, I forgot to remove it. That was fixed. thanks for finding that.

As for validation, how the heck do I do it. most of those errors are things that I cant fix like the way urls or formed with an & symbol in them...

You pretty much have to do what the rest of us do when we are dealing with a poorly marked up document, you paste your URL into the validator and just go down the list till you have fixed all the problems. I don't know what kind of generator you are using to make the page but it sounds like you need a decent highlighting text editor to go along with it, such as Notepad++ or SciTE. That would allow you to make needed changes globally instead of one by one. And your markup needs to be consistent with your doctype.
