  • Hey all 🙂 I got a problem on the following site:
    If you check it with IE it is all good
    But FiFo shows it all foked up 🙁

    Here are the CSS info on both sidebars:
    position: absolute;
    padding: 20px 0 0px 0;
    margin-left: 65px;
    width: 180px;
    border: 1px solid black;

    position: absolute;
    padding: 20px 0 0px 0px;
    margin-left: -690px;
    width: 180px;
    border: 1px solid red;

    Now I know the problem is the -690 vs the 65 margin-left.

    Now here comes the big Question:
    For some reason IE uses a margin from the CENTER side on
    but FiFo uses a margin from the LEFT side on…
    So on IE it looks good, but FiFo has the problem that a NEGATIVE margin shows outside the page…

    A little example of what I mean:

    So somewhere for some reason there is probably something wrong why IE all of a sudden uses an alternate reference…..

    Anyone had this problem before and has a solution ??

  • i have a crying baby on my lap so this is hard but there seems to be an overabundance of extra css but if you just move the content over a hunred pixels or so it will pop into place

    margin-left: 105px; add it so it is 205 or so

    dawg – thnx for the support – Problem then is that in IE it overslides 🙁
    The problem goes for the MAIN center content and 2 of the SIDEBARS (while my daughter rides over my foot with here W the Pooh tricicle..

    this is hard my son is now snoring, i would start by stripping a lot of extra css out, also i would do the math so you do not have to use a -whatever. hth

    You still have horizontal scrollin IE which is a little awkward

    What screen-res ? I will make it a bit smaller… This is my first theme I created / redesigned ( is my 2nd 🙂


    Three words: Box. Model. Hack.

    @dawg – Thought so
    @rsl – Uhmz ??

    I do not subscribe to using a hack, The only thing is I really can not make changes and see how it renders in IE, easy to do in FF
