[Resolved] My fluxipress site looks awful in Internet Explorer – fixes?

  • I just installed the fluxipress theme on http://www.santesson.dk. Looks beautiful on Macs, Ipads, Iphones but awful in Internet Explorer. Anything I can to to fix it? Or will I need to find another theme? Thanks!!

    Which version of Internet Explorer is this regarding?

    Internet Explorer 8 – and maybe more versions.

    Thanks! Still not working though. Installed the plugin, activated and reopened IE browser to look at the site again.

    What specifically is wrong, can you provide some imagery illustrating it too?

    Is it possible to upload screen dumps here? The problem is:
    – the header (title) and menu is in ordinary small text
    – the posts on the front page don’t have any distance between them. They are all cramped tightly together and the text in the posts are also too cramped incl the distance between the text lines. This is also the case in the posts when you click at them.

    Following bullit #2 above: It is like there is no margin in the posts on the front page

    You can link to screenshots http://snag.gy

    Have uploaded it to the website on this link:
    http://www.santesson.dk/IE8

    Will also try snag.gy

    snag-gy doesn’t work on this computer – a java problem it seems (not that I know). But you should be able to see it on the link above. I have postet a screen dump of both front page and a post.

    I think the issue is to do with IE8 and below not supporting rem measurements.

    Meaning that it is best to change the theme?

    or is there a good fix?

    It’s a lot of work, there are 105 occurrences where rems are used in the style.css file. You can still use rems but you’ll need to substitute them with something like ems.

    If you wanted to do this work, or someone else did, then you’d need to create a Child Theme or use a Custom CSS plugin to hold your CSS modifications.

    Your CSS modifications will consist of those 105 styles with the equivalent ’em’ measurements.

    wauv…. Not a programmer – very much an amateur. Think I can manage to set up a child theme – seems fairly straight-forward. Sorry if this is a silly question: Is it then a matter of finding the style.css file (in file manager – or in the wp editor?) and replacing “rem” with “em” a 105 times – or how do I identify the 105 occurances?
