Mini twitter feed
[resolved] minitwitter doesn't work in Internet Explorer 6/7/8/9 (13 posts)

    My website http://tuncpartner.nl/test/ has a mini twitter on the left. It is not the plugin; it is the code itself. I have made the theme myself.

    Somehow, the twitter bar disappears on Internet Explorer, and I cannot figure out why?

    Maybe you have a suggestion?

    And here's the code:

    <div id="twitter">
    		<div id="tweets">
    			<div class="tweets">
    				<div class="content_tweets"> </div>
    					<div class="tweets_footer">
    						<a href="https://twitter.com/#!/SuheylaTunc">
    						<span id="bird"></span></a>
    					</div>
    				</div>
    
    					<script type='text/javascript'>
    						jQuery(".content_tweets").miniTwitter("@SuheylaTunc");
    					</script>
    
    			</div>
    		</div>	
    
    	</div>

    and the css

    #twitter {
    position: fixed; top: 300px; width: 200px; left: 25px;	}

    Note that it does work on safari.

    And the includes in the index.hml:

    <! Twitter ->
    <script language="javascript" src="http://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/1.7.1/jquery.min.js" type="text/javascript"></script>
    <script language="javascript" src="http://entunc.nl/test/wp-content/themes/EnTunc/minitwitter/jquery.minitwitter.js" type="text/javascript"></script>
    <link href="http://www.entunc.nl/test/wp-content/themes/EnTunc/minitwitter/jquery.minitwitter.css" media="all" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css"/>

    Try maybe #twitter {overflow:hidden;}. Or maybe z-index:1000, I think the problem is with the fixed position.

    Without your changes, the plugin works on IE 7-8, I tested myself. I think you did something wrong with your css.

    Strange, both don't seem to work.

    #twitter {
    position: absolute; top: 300px !important; width: 200px !important; left: 25px !important; overflow: hidden !important; z-index: 1000 !important; }

    hmm.. I changed my plan.

    Plan 2:
    Now I've made my theme 'widgetisable' and added the plugin. All code from the custom mini twitter is now deleted. Somehow it does show up in internet explorer, but not the tweets:

    Why don't my tweets work? Any suggestions?

    PS Safari still works perfectly.

    It is really weird. Are you using a proxy to connect to Internet? Maybe the connection to the twitter API is blocked. It works on IE on other websites..

    I'm not using a proxy.

    I've tested the IE stuff with http://netrenderer.com/index.php

    Is there anything I've forgotten to add maybe?

    Maybe it is better to test on real IE...

    Thank you to check on real applications before posting. And Thank you to change the title of your thread.

    WebDevDesigner, I'm terribly sorry if this has caused you trouble. I relied too much on that service, because I have no Internet Explorer at the ready. Anyway, thanks for your time.

    greets,
    Lars
