Support » Fixing WordPress » Sidebar Not Showing in Versions if IE

  • This is a little complicated, but i’m guessing the issue is probably not do to any changes i made to this template. On certain (I’m guessing older) versions of Internet Explorer, this sidebar on the right side of this site is just non-existent.

    What i’ve done is made it possible to have the quote at the top run across the screen and above the following sidebar (the client REALLY wanted it to be like that) by using the primary sidebar, changing the width of the primary sidebar to fill the page, and placing the sidebar call before the container on the page.php file. Then, the secondary sidebar is used for the info in the right column.
    Here’s some code:

    get_header(); ?>
    <?php get_sidebar(); ?> /*This was originally right before the get_footer, but i put it up here to get the text to run above the content AND the secondary sidebar. */
    		<div id="container">
    			<div id="content" role="main">
    			get_template_part( 'loop', 'page' );
    			</div><!-- #content -->
    		</div><!-- #container -->
    <?php get_footer(); ?>


    #primary {
    	float: left;
    	overflow: hidden;
    	width: 750px;
    #secondary {
    	float: right;
    	overflow: hidden;
    	width: 220px;
    	clear: right;

    It seems pretty straight forward to me, so i don’t see why IE would have a problem with it. If there are any suggestions that would result in the same visual effect of what it is now, that would be great.
