Support » Plugin: CSV to SortTable » Display of file URLs in IE8

  • Resolved Joe Banks



    In IE8 (unfortunately, it is the default IE browser for all of us at NASA on Windows machines), the file link icon is also displaying the link. Before I research the use of :


    …and IE8 issues, I wanted to see if you can provide any insight on how to fix this.

    Here’s the screenshot:

    Doctype is specified:

    <!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "">

    I’ll report back if I can provide a solution.

    Hey Joe, thanks for using my plugin! I hadn’t tested the CSS against IE8, as I should have. I will look into a solution now…

    Hi Shaun,

    My immediate response I’ve found is that IE (versions TBD) doesn’t support:

    color: transparent

    So a suggestion on Stack Exchange recommended that you also make the font-size (**and also the line height) to be 0;

    font-size: 0;
    line-height: 0;

    Note: The font-size:0 usage (and also perhaps line-height:0) requires a valid DOCTYPE.

    I’ll drill into this further after the holiday is over.

    (For IE7 and below, I’ve simply added a magic CSS command that either automatically upgrades or shuts down the user’s computer 😉 )

    Awesome, thank you! Please let me know if you can get it to work, as I do not have a reliable way to test IE8.

    If your solution works, I will add it to the next version of the plugin.

    Joe – I’m going to mark this issue as resolved, based on the solution you provided. If you have tested it and could confirm that it works, that would be awesome. Thanks!


    Yes, consider this matter resolved with the solution above!
