Css problems in Internet Explorer

  • Hi, I’m having trouble with internet explorer. I wanted to have a graphic logo instead of text in the header so i removed the title and description simply by not entering it in the settings page, i then just edited the header image and put my logo on it…

    When i did this my navigation bar moved up about 80 pixles, i managed to fix this in firefox by changing the bottom margin on the header tag in the css:

    h1 { font-size: 32px; margin-bottom: 78px; margin-left: 105px;}

    This only fixed the problem in firefox and the issue is still present in Internet Explorer. The theme i installed does have a separate style sheet for IE but it contains almost nothing:

    .slogan {
    margin-bottom: 5px;
    }

    #navigation {
    margin-top: -20px;
    }

    #footer {
    margin-bottom: 0px;
    }

    Does anyone know a quick fix that i can use to lower the navigation?

  • help? 🙂

    Please, anyone?

    this looks like the most obvious place to start

    #navigation {
    margin-top: -20px;
    }

    Changing that to 0 creates a 20px gap at the top of the page. Changing it to 20 creates a 40px gap at the top…

    Any other suggestions?

    Thanks for trying. 🙂

    did you try changing it to -40?

    Yes that just cuts 20px of the top of the page.

    Still not resolved! Any other ideas?

    Still need help with this please 🙂

    what other avenues for assistance have you looked into?

    None as of yet, i assume it will be an easy fix but i know little-nothing about css, for an experienced user i would have assumed they would understand the problem… obviously not.

    None? I appreciate your honesty.

    There are a gazillion CSS sites on the web — Might I suggest doing a little legwork of your own?

    for an experienced user i would have assumed they would understand the problem… obviously not.

    haha nice! what a jerk! your problem isnt a wordpress problem, its an IE/css inconsistency problem. start searching the web for IE issues like the one youre having, or better yet, go back and start over. you didnt do it right to begin with. adding a margin to an empty <h1> element isnt the right way to go.

    I resent being called a jerk, the term ‘user’ was intended as css ‘user’ or ‘coder’, not a wordpress user. I know this isn’t a wordpress problem but it is a problem i am having whilst using wordpress which should therefore justify my request for help here.

    The comment i made was in no way targeted at anyone, or to be offensive. I genuinely mean what i say. I would expect any avid css coder to have understood the problem, its just a margin problem.

    Yes, i could have looked elsewhere but quite frankly I’m a busy person. Beside the point: if this huge, active support forum filled with hundreds if not thousands of wordpress users and css coders can not fix the problem which i have specifically described with quotes from the code. What are the chances a google search will reveal the answers.

    Yes, i could have looked elsewhere but quite frankly I’m a busy person.

    And the people here arent? I appreciate that, but you do relaize that there are more pressing items on this forum, these days, right?

    I wasnt, by the way, suggesting, IF i was suggesting anything at all, that a google search would miraculously reveal an answer, I was just thinking that you might also take your question to another more dedicated CSS site. Not because I don’t want to help, or cant, but because you seemingly aren’t too busy to bump your posts here.. so why not try other sites.

    its just a margin problem.

    Then any other site full of CSS gurus ought to be able to help you just as easily.

    Being stubborn about waiting for an answer here, when you think it’s such a simple fix sounds like a case of “cutting off your nose to spite your face”.

    Youve spent 2 days waiting and bumping.. had it been me, I would have already had been looking at other places to ask the same question.

    But then, Im not a busy person either.
