Contact form not working properly on Internet Explorer??

  • Please help on my contact page http://www.smartchildcare.com.au/contact-us/on all browsers with the exception of Internet Explorer when I fill out the fields in the contact form looks great as it should however when I use Internet Explorer and try to fill out fields and place letters in such as a “j” for example it looks like I loose half the letter turns out after doing some research this has to do with the way Internet Explorer reacts with the css file??

    Is there a wordpress plugin I can use that automatically detects if Internet Explorer is being used and rectifies this?

    If not I read up a solution where it says I have to insert into the css file the following code

    <!–[if IE]>
    <link rel=”stylesheet” type=”text/css” href=”all-ie-only.css” />

    And then I just need to create another Stylesheet this is where I am confussed do I just copy the existing style sheet and edit a few bits and call it something else?? and if so what bits do I edit to make sure on Internet Explorer the writting fits perfect in the boxes on the contact form, please help 🙁

    You just add any new, corrective, CSS to your all-ie-only.css file.

    This is the problem I have not actually created an all-ie-only.css file so do I just copy the current css across to the all-ie-only.css file and then edit this file to be appropriate for when browsers are using Intrnet Explorer is this correct?

    If so I am not sure what I need to edit in the all-ie-only.css to ensure that when the http://www.smartchildcare.com.au/contact-us/ Contact form is pulled up on Internet Explorer that all the letters fit into each imput area??

    I found this in the existing css

    /* =IE Styles
    ————————————————————– */

    #ie8 #site-title a {
    background: #fff;
    #ie8 img.size-auto,
    #ie8 img.size-full,
    #ie8 img.size-large,
    #ie8 img.size-medium,
    #ie8 .format-gallery .attachment-large,
    #ie8 .entry-attachment img,
    #ie8 .widget-area img {
    width: 100%; /* Prevent vertical stretching */
    #ie8 .entry-date {
    background: #ffebf2;
    left: -5.2em;
    z-index: 9999;

    Can something be added to this to ensure all versions of Internet Explorer make the contact form http://www.smartchildcare.com.au/contact-us/ have information fit in where it should???
    or do I have to still do the previouse things in this post?

    is this correct?

    No. You just add the new, corrective, CSS to the IE-only stylesheet. What theme are you using? Where did you download it from?

    I am using the theme Bouquet i just need the contact page to ensure that all letters i.e. the letter J fits in the boxes when filling out the contact form when on Internet Explorer.

    What do I need to add, can I send you the login for the site??

    I’m sorry but as you are using a commercial theme, you need to seek support from the theme’s developer/vendor. We do not support commercial products here.
