font-resizer plugin isnt working in IE8 (13 posts)

    Hi, Im using Font-Resizer Version 1.1.4 | By cubetech.ch

    It works perfectly in every other browser but Not IE8 (and probably other IE's).

    The links produced that resize the text dont seem to be actual links in IE (so the mouse doesnt chnage and is displayed as just normal text)

    Has anyone encountered this?

    Any help greatly appreciated!!

    I take it you have not found a solution to this yourself? I just dont get it!

    Ah well maybe have to do it strictly PHP and cut out the js!

    @Davidsdesk, rather than bumping someone else's question, start a new topic.

    @micahcooksey, why start a new topic if he has the exact same concern? That seems a bit nuts.

    the1path: unfortunately I have been distracted with a few other projects, so i havent been able to look into this issue yet. Would be nice if the author would just fix it. =P Though im not sure how he didnt see the issue pop up earlier since IE8 has been out awhile now.

    A little bit of bad judgement on my part. It's just that there is a problem with people not knowing how to start a new topic and posting their unrelated questions on someone else's topic. But, obviously, that's not the case here. My apologies :)

    Have you tried
    http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/jquery-font-resizer/screenshots/ ?

    No, but according to the author, it doesnt work

    Not as friendly, but i got this to work fine with all the major browsers:

    Good. Just a note, because a plugin says it works up to x version of WP, that doesn't mean it won't work with later versions. It might not, but then it might, so it's worth a try :)

    Try to make a conditional comment which excludes the display of the font-resizer only from IE8:

    <![if !IE 8]>
    <?php if(function_exists('fontResizer_place')) { fontResizer_place(); } ?>

    Not a fine solution but better than not working on IE8 at all

    Sorry again for the late answer :)
    There was a javascript error. This error touched only Internet Explorer and is fixed in the version 1.1.5.

    Cheers Chris
