  • Framework Version:v2.3

Posted 24 September 2012 - 11:40 PM

I updated recently to Pagelines Frameworks 2.3, since then my website's fixed nav bar and regular nav bar (below the header) are not working properly on some versions of Internet Explorer. The issue is twofold:

1. The fixed nav bar at the top is visible; however, the links on it to other pages on the site are not present.
2. The nav bar under the header is not visible; links and all.

My machine's IE 9 is showing everything fine. The computers with IE 8 and down are having the issues listed above (other browsers are showing no problems). My question is the following:

How can I make these two nav bars work more consistently with Internet Explorer?

I would appreciate any assistance as the content on the site needs to be accessible for it contains timely and important information to the people in our community; especially at this time of year.

Best,

Robert

After updating to the the 2.3 Framework, I, too, am having an issue in IE 9 and a complete un-usefulness in IE8. The navbar (fixed or standard) displays as blue to black gradient when set to Black transparency for the Navbar theme. I want it to be black transparent like it is in Chrome. In IE 8, as stated above, the navbar doesn't show at all.

I am eager to hear a response also.

Thanks,
Ericka

See ajkevents.com for an example.

Hi there, I recommend you read the following posts

Unfortunately there are issues with NavBar and IE8, one option would be to use the Classic Nav instead and style it using Css.

Ericka, are you viewing in IE compatibility mode?

Hi,

I have just added your website to Adobe Browser lab, not a Windows user and your navbar looks fine. As for IE8, this is slightly more tricky as it doesn't actually support HTML5 and CSS3 techniques.

Can you provide a screenshot of what you're actually seeing please.

Hi,

As yet I have only updated one of my websites to 2.3: www.fredrikakerman.se. And the navbar has changed color to blue in IE9 (in bothe Firefox and Chrome it is fine), see screenshot below.

Hi,

Try adding this to your custom CSS and see if this works.

Hi Danny,

I have already tried that and several other changes in the css, but without any luck.

Thanks for trying, Fredrik

I am not sure the issue here, as it looks as though something else is styling your Navbar. The image above looks as though it has a gradient blue to black coming from somewhere else.

Do you have some gradient custom CSS ?

No, this is all the custom CSS I have written for the Navbar:

I've been advocating with our developers for some time about IE8 and while they're completely sympathetic, there's no real solution to fix how IE8 views our code. Since the browser pre-dates the languages we're using, as Danny pointed out, they won't be able to display things that other, more recent browsers do.

Even in IE9, some elements, such as text shadow, used extensively in the NavBar, fail to render because IE9 doesn't support it.

The best solution is to use Nav Classic as your menu, placed at the top of the list for the Header in Drag & Drop if you want it in 'fixed" position.

I´m seeing the same effect in my site and even in the pagelines homepage using IE9 (company policy!):

I'm switching to the Nav Classic, but I wish the other worked in IE.

Thanks for your help, everyone.

As of the next update, I'm informed we'll have some added support for NavBar for IE8. That should be out soon.

Frippe1909,

Try targeting .navbar.pl-color-black-trans and simply override its framework default in your child theme. This fixed it for me.

What is your issue now that you have updated to version 2.3.2?

The navbar isn't showing up for me in IE9 at all now. However, it does show up in IE8.
