Support » Plugin: T(-) Countdown » [Plugin: T(-) Countdown] labels are off with ie8 and ie9

  • Resolved alphablossom



    I’m using the TIE-fighter with the Genesis Framework, Enterprise Theme and it works great on FF and Chrome. When viewing on ie9, the labels (weeks, days, minutes, etc) pop out of the box. On ie8 they don’t show at all.

    I’ve been trying to find the issue but have had a hard time pinning down the css.

    Has anyone experienced this? Any recommmendations? I’m sorry in advance I can’t demonstrate this on a live setup.

    Other styles work ok but my client wants Tie-fighter so I’m hoping for a fix.

    Thank you,

  • Hi alphablossom, i’m facing the same issue, the viewing in IE9 totally break my layout. Did you get the solution yet? Thanks for your advise

    Hi specex,

    I never received any reply, so I decided use a conditional ie statement. I created a background image and new css rules which would apply only in ie and it worked great.

    The background image included the vertical labels so that I didn’t have to worry about them popping way out of the containers…I tried to find the css issue that was causing the problem, but after spending some time on it I had to move on.

    I hope this helps!

    If you would share with us a solution (maybe via pastbin), we would be happy to update the plugin for other IE users.


    Hello Baden,

    I’m happy to share what I did, but I’m not sure how helpful it would as a plugin solution…my solution only works for the full timer (specifically for weeks, days, hours, minutes, seconds), so if someone wants to use a version with only days, hours, minutes, seconds, etc it would not be helpful.

    If you think it would help anyways, please let me know and I will be happy to help.

    Thank you,

    hi can you share the solution, i am using Carbonlite with weeks, days, hours, minutes, seconds. thanks

    Here’s the link to the pastebin with the code used:

    You’ll have to create the background image and add the vertical labels (weeks, days, etc) to the image directly, save it in the “images” folder with the name of timer-bkg.jpg. Of course, you can change the name of the image and location, just modify the css to match.

    You could also modify it so that it used the background image for all browsers, and that would eliminate the need for the IE conditional statement. I didn’t test this will all browsers, only IE, but if it was my site, this is how I would have done it.
