Seach box icon blown out in IE8


Question

Posted · Report post

Hello! I am so happy with my upgraded version of pagelines and the amount of support is great. I have been cross browser testing and I noticed that in IE8 the seach box icon is blown out.

 

I have searched for answers but have not found any on this specific issue.

 

Any tips on how to fix this is greatly appreciated, picture attached.Thanks!

Hi Danny, Thanks for your help and sorry on the delay in responding.

 

Your solution unfortunately didn't resolve it. As it was, previously:

And after inserting the code:

However, this is really a very minor "problem" – I actually think the magnifying glass looks kinda cool blown up . . . it's only when you start to type that the big image obscures your writing somewhat . . . but I don't expect a whole lot of searches on my site, anyway ;)

 

So from my pov no further action is necessary – plenty of bigger fish to fry.

 

Thanks again.

I did a search and this may fix the issue, as I don't have access to IE8, can you reply here if it does please.

 

#site .searchform .searchfield {
filter: progid:DXImageTransform.Microsoft.AlphaImageLoader(
src='http://www.caltronicssolutions.com/wp-content/themes/pagelines/images/search-btn@2x.png',
sizingMethod='scale');

-ms-filter: "progid:DXImageTransform.Microsoft.AlphaImageLoader(
src='http://www.caltronicssolutions.com/wp-content/themes/pagelines/images/search-btn@2x.png',
sizingMethod='scale')";
}

What is the url to your site? Most of the reps have either IE9 or a Mac (no IE) so we will have to take a look. It could very well be new coding not working in older browser versions.

Hi Mackenzie, I've observed the same issue . . . search bar magnifying glass icon is blown up in IE8. Per www.wfpse.org (search box is down the page on the right). Demonstrable via Adobe browser lab if you don't have access to IE8. Not a huge crisis for me, though it does make it tough to see any text you've entered.
