Google Language Translator
[resolved] IE8 issue (31 posts)

    Hi there,

    I gave 5 starts straight away I saw this plugin and installed, forgot to test a bit around ;-p

    Anyway, I am having strange issue with IE8 and most likely IE9 will be similar, unable to test on IE9 atm though.

    I'm working on Genesis framework using latest updates child theme with HTML5 markup activated on it, but don't think this causes the issue.

    The problem in IE8 is that as soon as I place the shortcode anywhere on the website, my header logo is gone (even from the code - no freaking idea how is that possible), there's huge messup after switching to any of the languages as well and there's some output (from probably Google Translator?) in the footer.

    If you would have possibility to see what I mean using IE8, here's the link - http://compucal.abbott-dev.com/

    Don't mind anything in there, the work is just starting off so not much to look for but I need something that would translate the website for few languages and this plugin fits just nicely! If there wouldn't be an issue with IE8 :-(

    Awaiting some tip/solution.

    Kind Regards

    Actually, an update, it doesn't work at all on mentioned website project of mine o.O

    Besides missing header logo, ans stuff being outputted in footer, switching languages does nothing.

    Another update, when you check this plugin's website in IE8 at

    http://www.studio88design.com/wordpress-plugins/google-language-translator/

    You will notice that it's outputting footer stuff and makes a spaced out header as well when changing language, but at least it switches languages, not like in my case :-(

    I believe this is a piece of code that produces error in IE8 (IE9, also fails, other browsers manage to handle the error without messing up the page completely).

    Output from Firefox Error console:

    Timestamp: 10.10.2013 16:02:05
    Warning: Selector expected. Ruleset ignored due to bad selector.
    Source File: http://en.advprotic.co.rs/
    Line: 64, Column: 80
    Source Code:
    #flags a { display:inline-block; width:16px; height:12px; margin-left:2px; } ?>

    OFC IT IS! :-)

    But since it's being used by a lot of people unfortunately, gotta take that in consideration.

    Hi everyone, I just returned from being out of town....I'm now going to look into this - I believe there might be some errors with duplicate code for the flag CSS display, which just happened to cause some IE8 issues.

    I may just fix this with a new update, but I will be in touch here soon.

    Thanks, Rob

    I got another issue, besides my header logo being gone with plugin being active for whatever reason, can't find out why, it's also conflicting with lightbox script somehow in IE8, the images instead of poping out in a lightbox are being showed in that down-below footer space...

    Had to uninstall plugin, too many no-no's :-(

    All the best with making it work, but for as long as it is breaking a lot of stuff in alikes of IE8, it's unusable.

    I've got this issue, too, in IE 8.

    On the footer of my page, this random text is showing ...

    Original text
    Contribute a better translation

    The translator bar also shows up after you translate something -- but really weirdly.

    See before (working):

    Oh, that reminds me that I even didn't get any flags like others do!

    Kramarz, I'm sorry it didn't work out - there were some glitches in my coding which probably caused some issues. I updated the plugin about an hour ago (to version 2.7), although I'm not sure if that would have fixed all of your problems. I am confident that my most recent version is more stable compared to version 2.6.

    Many of the issues I have found on others' sites are that certain HTML attributes are being translated in the header, which breaks CSS styles in many cases. This is one possibility, although it may not be the problem at all.

    Also I see you used Transposh, which is a great solution. I probably need to add user-friendly url's to my plugin, which would really make it better. That method of translation may even solve display issues that you have experienced.

    Are you having any IE8 issues using their plugin? Please update us here....

    Thanks!

    mprotic,

    Thanks for that Firefox error you provided. Very helpful.

    Would you mind downloading the most recent version (2.7) and letting me know if anything changes for you. I have actually changed the way flags are displayed in this version, so there might be improvement.

    Thanks!

    Hi SITEWEB44, I just used Browserstack to look at your website in IE9 environment. It appears to be looking good. I do not see any issues with your slider dots.

    It does look like your other issues are fixed now, with the update.

    Also, please view the screenshots here and then test it live by clicking the little computer screen icon above each screenshot.

    Let me know if this helps any.....please report your findings back here.

    Hi there, rm2773

    Yea, used Transposh, and works just fine on anything.

    As to what version is that... vierdly enough I took it normal way from wordpress, which has some limited functionality, but then there's a setting in options to enable updates of this plugin from its source website, after doing so I got fully working stuff without paying for anything, so not sure if there even is a paid version at the moment, or maybe there is and it offers even more customisation, but anyway what I got now suits my needs fully.

    As to testing, I'll stick to what's there atm, wasted too much time fixing some other stuff, and the site will need to go live soon~ish.

    I'll be sure to test your plugin again soon enough on something else though!

    Thanks for looking after this all. All the best!

    Hi junger, would you be able to provide a link to your website, so that I could view the issue in IE8? then I will see if I can find issues. Also, I just updated the plugin to version 2.7, which took care of some major display issues.

    Let me know if you still need help.

    Thanks, Rob

    Hi SITEWEB44,

    I finally was able to get a screenshot from another computer using Windows Vista with Internet Explorer 9.

    It appears all is looking great, even after changing languages. Can you report back and let us know if you still get display issues? I'm sorry if so, it's really tough when each user has unique computers running different software. I hope your problems are fixed!

    there is something strange, i use the plugin visitor map and i see in the stats many time this url (about 30% visit)

    /modules/mod_gtranslate/tmpl/lang/16.png

    but there is no modules folder, i think it's in joomla...this happens only since the last update of the plugin Google Language Translator

    anyone have an idea
