Support » Themes and Templates » Position absolute and IE

  • Having a problem lining up a login link I have at the top of my site for IE, it’s just off by a few pixels but it doesn’t look good, looks fine in FF though. I’ve searched around a bit, but couldn’t figure it out, here is the css i’m using.

    #login-form  {
    	color: #ffffff;
    	font-family:"arial", sans-serif;
    	background: #000;
    	border: none;

    It’s not a login form on the site, only a text link, I just didn’t change the name in the css.

  • Could be lots of things.

    Have you reset padding and margins anywhere on your stylesheet?

    I’m not sure what you mean by that. I just added this code to position a loginout link in my theme, shows fine in FF, it’s offset in IE

    I’ve been told it’s the position: absolute part causing it, IE doesn’t reconize it, but I don’t know what to add so IE will.

    can you give the link of the site please??

    sure, it’s

    I’m not sure what you’re trying to do, but if it’s to place the log in link at the right had side of the menu, I suggest you place your #login-form inside the #access div.

    The #access div has a position of relative; so it’ll be much easier to position your #login-form

    I suggest trying

    #login-form { position:absolute;top:10px;right:20px; }

    and going from there.

    I’m just trying to make the “Login” link show in the same position in IE as in firefox, it shows a few pixels too high in IE is all.

    I’ll try what you said, thanks for the help.
