[resolved] Display scrolling anomolies (11 posts)

    Problem is with fusion theme in IE6. Following load, and on vertical scroll, display content freezes and scroll produces all vertical lines until browser window is resized. Page redraws correctly, but any subsequent scroll causes same problem. Thoroughly agree IE6 should be buried - client however wants fix. Any and all help appreciated.

    Does the theme load any custom js? If so, have you tried loading it via a conditional comment so it's only loaded by IE7 or above?

    Theme appears to load one theme-specific external script, fusion.js.

    Will try limiting it. Thanks.

    Appears js is not the issue. Prevented all from loading and scrolling/display issue persists in IE6.

    I'd start by sorting out your validation errors. There aren't that many but the biggest problem is the missing DOCTYPE declaration on the main frameset.

    Site is hosted in subdirectory of another url - with masked domain forward - the page that validated looks like it may have been the forwarding script.

    The actual url is http://www.considinecommunications.com/njcdd/

    You've still got some validation errors. The multiple occurrences of class= won't be helping. When I checked the site site out using IE6 (using the IETester), I had one definite javascript error and a second error message saying that access had been denied to another script. Once I told IE to stop running any scripts, the site displayed just fine.

    If you're running a few plugins, you might want to try deactivating them all to see if this resolves the problem. If this works, re-activate the plugins one by one until you find the problematic plugin(s).

    It appears to be the host's domain forward - they use a single frame to make a masked domain forward. The page you validated originally was held within that frameset.

    The problem disappears when the page is loaded in IE6 in the actual hosting directory.

    Duh!

    It looks like we'll have to move the site to solve the client's problem.

    I had no idea the domain forwarding mechanism was so prehistoric.

    Thanks much for your help.

    i had this problem too and changed the domain forwarding and it stopped.
    By the way i think the website you made for your client is for a fantastic cause and will link them up from some sites i have.
    A very important issue indeed.
