Microsoft MSIE Browser Issues



Best Answer Simon_P , 15 September 2012 - 01:13 AM

The stats you posted are are not really the true numbers, thats the totals of all versions of IE including the latest IE9, and IE10.
IE7 is about 1.5% and ie8 is 7% of total internet traffic.

What patch would you like us to add? we could remove all css3 if you like ;) Our navclassic navbar works fine in older versions as it does not have any css3.
Your opening post mentions jigoshop, we are not the jigoshop authors, our plugin simply adds a few colours to the jigoshop elements. Go to the full post

Did you test Framework/Jigoshop with MSIE browser? Don't mean to be flip, but the menu drop downs don't work, the image borders don't show up, and a few of the colors are not registering. I activated the feature "Include Google IE Compatibility Script?" but it didn't help. I didn't make any changes that would break it. What is happening here. I don't like MSIE, but a lot of people still use it. Can anyone enlighten me about why this is happening?

Good question....but it may not help. I tested it in version 7 and version 8. It is broken in both.

Try it out.

Ah i see your using the new menu, yea looks great in modern browsers, unfortunately ie7 and ie8 do not do css3 at all.
If you really need to support those browsers you should use the old classic menu.
How many of your visitors are using the old browsers?

Okay....well....forgive me....I'm not sure what you mean by classic menu. Do I have to abandon drop downs for MSIE and create a separate website for MSIE? Has it gotten that bad at Microsoft? Could you point me in the right direction?

I just noticed that the drop down IS dropping down, but it goes behind the background color......that's really screwy.

My answer to your other question is this: how many people use MSIE? The answer is still extremely large number. When one builds a website, one must build it for MSIE users too. Any other effort would be self defeating, unfortunately. Hopefully, Microsoft will go out of business in a few years, but for now......

Ah...I see....okay...thank you very much. It is kind of you to help.
Unfortunately, it means I'm basically up the creek with drop downs on MSIE in Framework. I just had someone check. It doesn't work in version MSIE 9 either, and that claims to have CSS3.

Do you think someone at Pagelines might be able to come up with a patch for this? After all, MSIE is on every Windows PC ever built.....people use it you know. ;-)

I do have a problem with IE9 en IE10 in combination with Pagelines (or Wordpress, I'm not sure which of the two) regarding image sizes.

An image in a post or page can be size adjusted in de advanced setting. Smaller or bigger.

If I've an image of say 100 * 100 pixels, and adjust the size to 70*70, the images are displayed correctly in Chrome and Firefox, but IE displays the orginal format. It does so because of a CSS entry in de generated CSS file (which is Pagelines I assume) 

If you look at

you'll see picture. In IE Developer tools it says 

 

<img width="300" height="450" class="size-medium wp-image-538 alignleft" alt="PP130112b-327-Edit" src="

"/>

 

However, in the generated CSS fiel compiled-css-1362682497.css there is a

 

body. content img - auto statement. And IE takes this over the width and heigth as defined with the img. So it displays the 200*300 size in stead of 300*450. This happens with all resized pictures. Disabling the body .content img style helps, but is needed for other purposes I think.

 

Any idea what's IE doing?

Hi John

 

IE doesn't accept any sort of resizing or scaling. 

 

The best solution would be to resize your images graphically, rather than through scaling.  Replace everything that's scaled or resized via WP and  everything will work just fine.

Hi James,

 

well, IE does however it must be acoomplished via a style, so 

<img style="width:300px; height:450px;" class="size-medium wp-image-538 alignleft" alt="PP130112b-327-Edit" src="

works.
