I made my site in Chrome, and the lay-out is messed up in Internet Explorer. Can anyone help me figure out why? When I go to the dashboard in Internet Explorer and look at the content, it looks fine.

Here is the site: http://www.votenm.net/

Thanks.

Hi Chorizo

I've not got internet explorer so I can't check the display for you. Would you be able to provide us with a screen shot. I should point out that we only partially support IE since the earlier versions do not support CSS3. Which version of IE are you using? It could be that some of the sections used aren't compatible etc.

I've checked the link provided in Firefox and I've noticed the spanish and english translations overlapping. http://screencast.com/t/g9eNPYmdqKu


Kindly search the forum and read the documentation before posting. It will help you resolve many issues.

For CSS help be sure to check out W3Schools first and be sure to download FireBug for FireFox for troubleshooting.

Looking at the code for the page it looks like you've used html to set images inside the boxes, the html specifies the height and widith of the image which is larger than the box width/page canvas width. So it's placing them as best it can on the page but they're overlapping.

You'll need to resize the images manually or via the html code you've entered so they appear smaller.

I just did that and they're still overlapped. If I decrease the size of the pictures too much or the margin size to make the boxes wider, then the header doesn't fit anymore. The page looks great in Chrome so not sure why it would look different in other browsers.

Hi,

Like James, I am not a WIndows user and therefore it's difficult to see the issue. Although, from what I can see, your issue is that the images are have these dimensions:

515x300 pixels

However, you're setting the images width/height to something smaller 464x270 pixels. Therefore, you will need reduce the size of your images to 464x270 pixels. This should resolve your issue.

If it doesn't please provide a screenshot of the issue.

I'm having the same issue. When I look at what I created in IE9 it looks terrible and nothing like what I see in Chrome. I'm not sure what to do from here. I wish I had done a bit of research before buying the Pro version. My business site has to look right on all browsers. Is this template capable of consistently looking the same across platforms? Appreciate any suggestions. Thanks!

Hi nCred,

First things first, please do not hijack other users topics, if you have an issue please create a new topic.

Regarding your "all browsers" comment. PageLInes supports all modern browsers, this includes Internet Explorer 9. However, we are unable to support old browsers due to our use of HTML5 and CSS3.

Please create a new topic and provide screenshots of your issue, also what version of Internet Explorer ?


Please search our forums, before posting!

@Danny,

Thanks for all the help in the forums. Would you happen to know what version of Pagelines supports IE7 - IE8 ?

PageLines Framework doesn't support either IE7 or 8. Both are effectively deprecated browsers, though we're soon going to add some additional support for NavBar in IE8 only.

      I've been fighting with a resolution issue ? Want to use Flick Slider, the site looks great on my monitor but client says she can't see bottom of homes. I believe she's on an old PC using outdated browser/s ... but, she's important to me and I'd like to make this work, on her system. Without asking her adjust her own set-up. 
      I put the Flick Slider inside a container, here ::
      http://becauze.xyz/home-five
      Set the Height of Flick Slider to 50 Base ... I don't know how this works exactly ... there is a Base then a Min ... but, haven't adjusted the Min ::
      http://becauze.xyz/home-four/
      Tried using Splash Up, which presents the same issue (she can only see top of home) and she wants several images to rotate on Home page, so not sure this would work anyway ::
      http://becauze.xyz/
      I have tried going into Layout and making the width narrower, and that does make the site narrower, but the homes still don't display in full, on her system. Help ?

      Here are her screen grabs, both desktop and iPad  (dumped the chalkboard background).

      FInally, she said these look great ::

      What am I doing wrong ?? Is there a better way to accomplish making the site look great on any resolution at any size ?

      I updated my theme to framework and now can't get rid of this bright blue bar that appears across the top of every page. It says, "A fixed bar that makes it easy to promote important content.", and then a button that says, "Get PageLines".
      I am a novice and need help.
      Thank you!

      Hi,
       
      I have been using DMS and pagelines.
      I am facing to a huge trouble with the appearance of one of my page on mobile (smart phones) built with pagelines.
      However I haven’t come to any solutions to organise either edit the appearance of mobile view to look neat or deactivate the responsive function. 
      Now it looks totally messy on the phone...
       
      1. Is there any way to edit the appearance of the mobile version (responsive theme)?
      2. Is there any way to deactivate responsive function?
       
      If I could receive support from you to go thorough this process I would be happy to be a pro member. 
       
      Looking forward to hearing from you.

      Hi,
      I desperately need to deactivate the responsive function on mobile for reasons. It looks so messy with the responsive look on mobile and not navigating or informative at all as it is. 
      I searched for solutions online and tries some of those that I found but nothing worked out. Also I found a previous post on this forum says that this theme pagelines DMS is not meant to be build to deactivate the responsive function... 
      Also tried with widget such as WPtouch to edit the mobile look a little more informative but as I am using "single page" theme on pagelines, the frontpage(main page) never appears on those app.
      Seems like not compatible?
      If there is no way to deactivate responsive function or I'll have to recreate another page just dedicated for a mobile page? or change the theme completely and build a page from scratch?
      I have been searching for this for two days already...
      Could anyone wise and kind out there, please help me?
       
      Thanks,
