IE bug
« on: November 26, 2010, 07:32:54 PM »

Hi,

Here is my personal blog: http://henrich.ro

Problem:

- under IE the leftsidebar and rightsidebar are not showing in the correct position.
- under IE the bullets from the lists are not appearing

I tried the next trick:

in the <head>
Code: [Select]
<!--[if IE]>
<link rel="stylesheet" href="ie-only.css" type="text/css" media="screen" />
<![endif]-->

then this files contains:
Code: [Select]
/* CSS Document */
#leftsidebar {
margin-right: 904px;
position: static;
}

.entry ul {
margin-left: 0px;
padding: 0 0 0 30px;
list-style: outside disc;
padding-left: 10px;
text-indent: -10px;
}

.entry li {
margin: 7px 0 8px 10px;
}

Anybody can help me?

Ah yes, i'm an IE hater!!!

Hi Henrich, long time no chat.  :)

YOur website looks pretty good to me in IE8.

What version of IE are you viewing your website with?

Hi, I have tested with v6 and v7, many peoples are still using those versions...

I know... I was too until a week ago. I am glad I upgraded. It is free from MS.

Perhaps what you can do is post a notice in a side-block on your home page advising viewers to upgrade their browsers if they are having problems viewing your pages.... and include links to the free IE8 Upgrade... and latest version to FireFox. I did that on a couple of sites in the past and viewers upgraded and thanked me for suggesting it.  :)

Added... Hey... is that a WordPress-powered website you're having trouble with?

Sorry but I will never put links to IE!!! Better i die!

I upgraded the css "only ie" code to:

Code: [Select]
#leftsidebar {
margin-right: 904px;
clear: left;
position: static;
}

Now the leftbar is on the leftside, but not at the top :|

I resolved the problem temporarily but it is not good for seo, the problem/question remain, and i'll try to draw the situation here.

Ex.:

We have three columns and we will write it in the html code in the following order: A - B - C (A = content, good to begin with this to be indexed by the Google before anything else, B = leftcolumn, C = rightcolumn)

But in the browser we would like to appear in this order: B - A - C

A know we must use some absolute positioning and relative parents, but i had no success with this. So temporarily i decided to write in the html code as B - A - C.

@Nicu, sNews i am still using but not at the old frequency and not for blogging. I had some issues for which unfortunately we didn't find a quick solve, so i decided to use something else for blogging, which covers my needs. For example managing the comments, spam, etc. As i am a heavy blogger with many blogs and articles per day, i can't wait for the solution for months. I did not found a good solution and the answers received here was like "go get some tobacco", well not directly like this but i assume when someone is asking for help, before this he tried to figure out the problem but without success, and also i assume the guy will not accept indirect alternatives which can change his whole project structure :) [So, we have or not the solution, everything is just about this :P] Right my friend?

Thanks for reading.

Back again...

With some help, i figured out the problem and i was thinking to build a tutorial for all of those who in the future will have the similar problem.

So the issue currently is looking like this: http://inturnets.com/demo/css/absolute-positioning/

As you can figure out, the only problem now, is that the "rightbar" when has more content (let's say we are in a single view of a page and the content is only couple of rows) than other columns, it is too long, look at the bottom right section of the page.

Any ideas/suggestion?
