Visual integration WordPress / phpBB3 - issue with IE9 (7 posts)

    Hi Everyone,

    I have integrated a phpbb3 forum into my wordpress blog. For now on, it's a static integration only. I haven't found a way to make it dynamic as I am lacking lots of css / php / etc... competencies.

    (I also tried wp-united but it is not compatible with WordPress 3.2.1 (unless doing lost of modification).

    Anyway, for some reason, the header of my phpbb3 forum is not properly displayed under INTERNET EXPLORER 9 when it's working just fine with FireFox 7.0.1.

    Under IE9, I have a space between my wordpress menu and the phpbb header. See differences between pic 1 & 2.

    under IE9 (bad)
    <img src="http://i1221.photobucket.com/albums/dd480/grom34/Sanstitre2.jpg" border="0" alt="Photobucket">

    under Firefox (good)
    <img src="http://i1221.photobucket.com/albums/dd480/grom34/Sanstitre1.jpg" border="0" alt="Photobucket">

    Any hint much appreciated.

    How did you do this ?
    Think you need to check the .css files.
    There is a modification for phpBB3, called rounded-borders.
    The stylesheet of that modification holds the answer somewhere, when done incorrectly, such a gap came up.
    It had to do with modifying overall-header.html with <div class="outside"> etcetera, and then the <div class="notopgap"> came.

    Maybe the guys on can explain how they did it.
    I'm very curious too.

    Thanks you very much for participating in this thread and offering recommendations.

    I actually just found what was wrong while trying to fix something else ! ha ha ha

    Within overall_header.htm, I placed the following "wrapheader" tag to have the forum top head bar (where you usually have the PHPBB3 logo) enclosed inside my blog.

    I then closed the "wrapheader" tag in the wrong file, thinking it should be done within overall_footer.htm.
    Indeed it was necessary to closed the "div" in the same file (overall_header.htm).

    What was I thinking ? (well I don't know anything about css, just messing around!!!).

    <div id="wrapheader">

    <div id="page-header">
    <div class="headerbar">

    <div id="wrapheader">

    <div id="page-header">
    <div class="headerbar">

    Might eventually help someone !

    Well, know I have another issue with Internet Explorer 9 while working fine in FireFox 8.


    There is no space between the blog content and the frame of the browser.
    I should have the background picture displayed in between.

    Any idea from CSS skilled members ? Because I'm really bad in that field! Thanks

    Try adding an extra closing </div> in overall-footer.html

    How did you get the headers of wordpress above the forum?
    Do you have a link or so for me?
