  • Resolved ijwoods


    Hi out there.
    The background of my template is dark and the twitter icon shows up with white space to the left and right. I created a twitter icon surrounded by the correct color but it made no difference. When I looked at the source of the twitter icon that shows it was coming from the Twitter site and not my domain. Is there any way to get this icon to appear without the white borders?

    Are you using the square Twitter icon, or Twitter’s Tweet button?

    Both should have a transparent background, so it might be something with your theme or your browser. Feel free to link to your site so we can take a look. What browser are you using?

    I was using the twitter tweet. After reading your message I removed it and used the square twitter button and that works. Thanks for your reply.

    Similar issue:

    There’s whitespace showing around larger Tweet and Facebook Like icons in IE6, IE7 and IE8, when background color is not white:

    Example here:

    There are so many layers of iframes and tables, I can’t seem to firebug the issue away.

    ** If I resolve this issue on this site, I’ll be able to resolve on a number of sites, so thanks in advance. **

    This is due to IE’s default value of false for their proprietary and non-standard allowTransparency attribute. It could be fixed by simply adding allowtransparency="true" to the Like & Tweet iframes but that would make the markup invalid because allowTransparency is considered non-standard.

    A future plugin release might work around this predicament by either using an IE conditional tag or setting the value via DOM scripting.

    P.S. IE is ridiculous. Even IE9 strays from what all the other browsers do in regard to iframe transparency.


    Thanks a bunch. At my dayjob, I still have to test for IE6, so I appreciate your insight and candor.

    Your attention to detail with this IE plugin makes it my “Share” method of choice across client sites.
