WP Photo Album Plus
[resolved] Very narrow slide show in IE8 (9 posts)

    Hello,

    Thank you for your excellent plugin.

    It works beautifully in Firefox, Safari and Opera, and up to IE7 and also in IE9.

    However, in IE8 the slide show is narrowed to a very thin vertical strip. You can see this at http://walkinginfrance.info/?page_id=27600

    It can be fixed by clicking Compatibility View but this is no long term solution.

    Do you have any suggestions/ideas what I can do?

    Thanks very much

    Keith

    I recently changed it so now a fullsize image has the attributes width="xx", height="yy" as well as style="width:xxpx; height=yypx;"
    This fixed it for IE7.
    So, if anybody knows why a browser does not show the picture as xx wide and yy high, please let me know. Maybe Bill Gates knows it?????

    Hi,
    Great plugin! But I'm afraid that even with 4.0.6 my client's site still has the problem. Clicking the IE8 compatibility button "fixes" it, but of course she doesn't want her visitors to have to do that...

    I'm scratching my head as well.... Could it be that the image container needs height and width specifically called out as well?

    If it helps, here's the url...

    Thanks!

    Ok, the basic structure is:

    <div id="wppa_container" style="width: ... >
      <div id="theslide" ....>
        <img width="..." height="..." style="width:...px; height:...px;" ... />
      </div>
    </div>

    I just added style="width:...px;" to the div with id="theslide".
    This runs in all browsers as far as i can see.

    The problem is that all my sites work problemless, also in ie7,8 and 9

    I will leave this mod in and see what happens in rev 4.0.7
    (maybe tomorrow)

    Hi!
    In my case it hasn't been the slide that was showing the problem. It was the actual page of the url I quoted.

    That being said, I edited the wppa-style.css file..

    I changed...

    .coverphoto-frame, .thumbphoto-frame {
    }

    and gave it a width

    .coverphoto-frame, .thumbphoto-frame {
    width:175px;
    }

    and the problem is gone!

    Hope this helps!

    Ken

    Yes this helps!

    The next version (4.0.7) will have width in the style attribute for coverphoto- and thumbnailascoverphoto- frames as well, calculated, and for all of the placement types.

    When released, please verify that it works also without the css change you made.

    Hello,

    I'm working with this plugin. And I think it's very friendly but I want to change te Album page.

    The plugin works like title on top then the album text, and at the side a covertumb. When you click on the thumb a tumbpage apears.

    I don't want a cover tumb, I like to see the tumbpage under the title and above the albumtext.

    My php is not the best and tried a lots of things. But don't get the result I need.

    Can anybody help me with this?

    First: please open a different topic, as this topic is about an old IE8 problem that is solved.

    Second: you can change the cover layout in the Photo Albums -> Settings page.
    See there: Table IV item 13 and Table I item 17

    You can also use %%wppa%% %%album=35%% to show the thumbnails of album 35

    Maybe you should read This documentation page first.
