Our twitter feed is misplaced only in Internet Explorer. Works fine in Firefox and chrome.

Any ideas on how to fix this?


many thanks,

this is weird.. it works on IE9 on my laptop computer but not on my desktop..

any ideas?

can anyone else experience the problem?

looks fine on my laptop. try posting a picture of the problem. take the align: left; out of the p, and the vertical-align: middle; doesn't do anything.

Here is the problem:


On the same note the blue horizontal bar below the menu is misplaced by a line and i think this is somehow related to our problem... hope this gives you a clue

I am using windows 7 and IE9
my resolution is 1680 x 1050

as I suspected,
these errors will cause differences between computers and browsers


Line 664, Column 19: end tag for element "DIV" which is not open
</div></div> </div>

The Validator found an end tag for the above element, but that element is not currently open. This is often caused by a leftover end tag from an element that was removed during editing, or by an implicitly closed element (if you have an error related to an element being used where it is not allowed, this is almost certainly the case). In the latter case this error will disappear as soon as you fix the original problem.

on a further note, you can't just set an inline element out like that blue line. you have to make it a block <div><img (blue line)/></div>

block must be on the same level as block


though block-block has nothing to do with the problem, try fixing the w3c errors, that will fix problems you dont even see yet. in the future, if you use a

<DOCTYPE html>

(html 5 doctype)
the validator will make sure you follow the rules which will produce maximum browser support

all these errors have to do with external scripts I am using on the site and i didn't write the code for them...

the problem will stay there even if I remove the scripts.. is there a specific fix you found out? thanksx

the one i pointed out. an end </div> which means you didn't close one of your tags.


after fixing mistakes, if that's not it, it looks like it's a problem with either the ul or img.

I would suggest setting the image inside a <div> in both cases. then setting heights for both with overflow: hidden;. This problem could be easier fixed with teamviewer though. without a live copy of the problem, I don't think I can say what's wrong.

this is too weird.. i just rechecked all tags..

I will check the php includes as well

ho ho ho I'm not looking for that. I've been there before in a 10k line script and believe me, I never forgot to start or end anything.

If you have teamviewer, I could fix the problem almost instantly

08-15-2011, 01:22 AM
it's a bit difficult actually because the full code as rendered by the browser has a missing tag

08-15-2011, 01:28 AM
sorry i don't have team viewer... this is too complicated i give up...

The code rendered by the browser is different than the code of my actual files.. I can send you all files in a .zip if you need them..

08-15-2011, 01:33 AM
try clearing your cache on both computers. also, if rendered code is different than your files, it could be an issue with your servers. go ahead an pm me the zip files, though I have to go right now. i can take a look at them in a couple hours.


08-15-2011, 02:51 AM
it's not the cache...I have moved the twitter code to the footer so it's the last piece of code that is executed... still the same problem.
