[Plugin: Events Manager] Map loads blocky in IE

Viewing 9 replies - 1 through 9 (of 9 total)
  • kind a weird because just tested it on IE8 and seems to be okay. Can you post an image/screenshot instead? also could be theme or plugin conflict that causes it, try to deactivate other plugin (temporarily) or change to default theme.

    Thought I’d re-raise this as I’m experiencing the same issue with my site and indeed if I follow Liz’s link in IE8 the map is blockified.

    With my site, I have disabled all plugins except EM, switched to TwentyEleven/TwentyTen themes, removed all map balloon formatting from EM settings, reverted to all original CSS, deactivated all widgets to find the bug…

    and am at a loss. Where else could the problem lie?

    Ps. I am running IE8 in bootcamp (although I don’t think this affect’s anything, as the problem also arises in other browsers eg. Android stock browser and Dolphin HD for Android.) but thought it might be worth mentioning.

    No problems in Firefox/Chrome.

    Thanks

    Oh, should say.. the maps function correctly in the backend when adding/editing locations.

    will check this out, maybe it’s a bug of the api version of google maps?

    If it’s of any use to you, Marcus, I just tested the site with IE8 and IE9 in Vista and there are no problems.

    When I encountered the problem earlier, I was using IE8 in XP so perhaps the problem (with IE at least) is limited to XP?

    thanks for testing that. I’m going to check this out today, if I can’t reproduce I’ll just update the api version (currently we’re using 3.4 and latest stable is 3.8), which may fix this.

    @robinmchugh, if you get a chance, could you download the dev version and see if it works for you now? would save me setting up my test environment, I just updated the api version.

    Hi Marcus, I won’t have access to my XP machine for a few days, but nonetheless I think you have the right answer.

    This might already be a known issue, but if you use a custom map size (by editing the theme css) the street view is also blocky in all browsers I tested.

    As a workaround, I’m using this plugin, and pasting the map shortcode it generates into a custom EM attribute field. The two plugins work well hand-in-hand and I haven’t found any glitches in any browsers so far. Might be worth cross-referencing EM’s map source etc. with theirs.

    Thank you for quick response/development.
