Tagged: IE Display Issues
Hello Wes! I have gone over this for a couple of hours now. There is a white strip at the bottom of the nav section in IE.
If I switch to IE Compatibility View, then the white nav stripe disappears.
BUT in IE Compatibility View – the front page text in the widgets randomly changes to Headings (sometimes in the same line) and looks really bad.
Is there a fix for the IE issue?
IE Compatibility View – text is also right-justified on all pages and widgets
Fixed the ‘right-justified’ issue on all pages in IE and the front page widgets (IE regular view) – by using html in the Home Feature widgets.
But the white stripe under the Nav section remains. Need to remove the white stripe.
In IE Compatibility View – the white stripe under Nav disappears. BUT text in all widgets and all pages still right-justified.
In IE Regular view in the Footer – there is now a red bar/black background – above the regular footer section (that also has a red bar with black background).
The 2nd Footer top bar (which should not be there) is fuzzy. The correct footer top bar (2nd bar in IE Regular view in the Footer) correctly displays and is not fuzzy.
Wes actually doesn’t have IE since he only has Mac computers…..so I’ll try and assist.
First, I wouldn’t depend on the IE “Compatibility” mode because it’s definitely not the same as the “real thing”. In my experience it has been very unreliable. So I would recommend testing under the actual browser itself rather than any “emulator” or you will get unrealistic results.
Most developers support IE8 and higher nowadays. Can you tell me which browser version you’re using so I can see if I (have it) and can take a look?
Hello Eric! I have IE 9. I stopped trying to use the IE compatibility mode to view the site because it was obviously making things worse:)
Everything looks great on the site in regular IE 9 – except. There is a white stripe about 50 px tall at the bottom of the Nav. That is not supposed to be there. The site, viewed in Chrome or Firefox, does not have the white stripe.
So the real issue is (apologies for being long-winded in the first place!) – how to get rid of the white stripe under Nav in IE.
Take a look at your code, it looks like you have html errors. If you forget to “open” or “close” your tags it throws other parts of the site off.
Since I’ve already spent a lot of time trying to figure this out, I’ll just get straight to the point (rather than explain in detail what all is happening). Take a look at you header right widget content – “Serving the North Texas Area” ……you didn’t properly close out the ….basically IE sees this and messes everything up. Other browsers won’t know how to display it either.
Eric – Thank You! I should have caught that myself – I understand the difficulty not closing the tags can cause in WP.
This site has had hosting issues, and every other kind of issue 🙂 Totally overlooked something as simple as this.
Can I buy you a cup of coffee for your trouble?
Many, many thanks!!!
