Glitch in IE 7 + IE8 - Can someone check it for me, I'm on a mac (7 posts)

    Hi guys,

    I'm having an issue reported to me that in IE 7 and sometimes 8 the navigation that is supposed to be in the top right of my site is coming way to far down the page and looks terrible.

    Could any IE 7 or 8 users try my homepage out at http://www.actonthis.co and see if you get the same error.

    The navigation consists of icons and text and should be in the top right.

    Would be so very grateful for any advice. I have no experience with IE sadly.

    Thanks for your time!
    :)

    It is in fact overlayed on the purple bar... too far down

    Ahh right, wow, thanks o much for the screen grab.

    I guess I'll have to make up a separate style sheet for IE 7 + 8

    Anyone done this before?

    Not quite sure what I need to put in it to raise those icons up to where they should be but at least I know what the issue is.

    If anyone could help me with a solution then I would be eternally grateful!

    Thanks again! :)

    See if this helps. the part about positioning site description inside the header.

    I'm not sure how you position things, so forgive me if this isn't helpful

    But I had issues with trying to positions the site description inside the header. In FF it would be great, but in IE it would suck, or vice versa

    I was finally able to absolutely position the description within the header (with relative assigned to it) and it worked cross browser. I wonder if that would work for you?

    Will check that article out thanks!

    It's a bit of a nightmare as I can't test changes in real time as I have no PC or access to IE 7! Haha!

    I'm pretty sure I'll need to create a style sheet for IE 7+ * so that if someone is browsing with that, then the site will recognise that and react accordingly.

    Hmm, may well have to get a developer on a job board to spend 10 mins or so on this. I guess it's an easy fix as it's only positioning. The nav still works, but is in the wrong place.

    I take it that it does still work?

    Cheers!

    yes it works... I'm in the opposite boat as you. I do all my coding at work, and only have IE to work with

    you can google conditional stylesheets, there's plenty of info out there. They are easy to set up (altough without access to IE, they'd be hard to test!!)

    Hahaha, yep that's going to be my stumbling block! I knew I shouldn't have sold my PC! lol

    Anyone fancy kncoking me up a stylesheet that makes this work with IE 7+8?

    I'll gladly send some cash your way! :)
