  • Resolved keysuuh


    if you check out my site on firefox:

    it looks perfectly fine on my side.

    but when i switch to IE8

    it looks HORRIBLE!
    i used a free theme from a site.
    and made major changes to it.
    but I can’t figure out what changes,
    ruined it.

    I activated the theme I used the css ect from.
    and it looks perfect in IE.
    what may be the problem?

    p.s the theme is GLOSSYBLUE.

  • Hi there. I had a quick look in IE and it didn’t look like it was getting info from the stylesheet at all. No images loaded. No floats applied. Not sure why that might be, looked fine in firefox.
    It’s usually necessary to make a seperate stylesheet for IE that you include after (<-important) the other stylesheets in your header.php file. You use a conditional statement only IE recognises …
    <!–[if IE]><link rel=”stylesheet” type=”text/css” href=”<?php bloginfo(‘template_url’); ?>/ieFix.css” /><![endif]–>
    Then put tweaks into that stylesheet to override rules in the main stylesheet.
    Problems in IE are usually to do with padding and height properties which IE treats differently. There are no min-height/min-width rules in IE. It also doesn’t support rounded corners.
    Hope that helps.

    thank you for the info 🙂
    Would I have to name that style sheet “ieFix.css” ?

    and the rounded corners on my site are images.
    jsut to let that be known.

    and also i do not see the (<-important) line on my header file.
    can you post that line also,
    so I can add it to my header.php? please…
