Nav bars not showing in IE

Recommended Posts

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 http://www.pagelines...-support#Item_3 and http://www.pagelines.com/forum/topic/20111-new-navbar-in-2-2-1-not-displaying-in-ie8/

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


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.

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.


.section-navbar.fixed-top {
background: black !important;
}
[/CODE]

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:


.navbar .plbrand img {max-height: 63px !important;}

.section-navbar.fixed-top {background: #000000 !important;}

.navbar .navline > li > a {color: #ffffff; margin-top: 18px; font-size: 120%;}

.navbar .searchform .searchfield {background-color: #ffffff; margin-top: 18px;}

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 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.


.navbar.pl-color-black-trans {

background: #45484d; /* Old browsers */

background: -moz-linear-gradient(top, #45484d 0%, #000000 100%); /* FF3.6+ */

background: -webkit-gradient(linear, left top, left bottom, color-stop(0%,#45484d), color-stop(100%,#000000)); /* Chrome,Safari4+ */

background: -webkit-linear-gradient(top, #45484d 0%,#000000 100%); /* Chrome10+,Safari5.1+ */

background: -o-linear-gradient(top, #45484d 0%,#000000 100%); /* Opera 11.10+ */

background: -ms-linear-gradient(top, #45484d 0%,#000000 100%); /* IE10+ */

background: linear-gradient(to bottom, #45484d 0%,#000000 100%); /* W3C */

filter: progid:DXImageTransform.Microsoft.gradient( startColorstr='#45484d', endColorstr='#000000',GradientType=0 ); /* IE6-9 */

}

This fix originated by using this great gradient generation tool.

Hi Fredrik,

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

I see it in IE9, but it's missing a shadow at top. As stated earlier in this topic, IE9 does not handle shadow the same as other browsers.

To resolve this, you'll have to use the Browser Specific CSS plugin.

Since the latest version of PageLines Framework has included resolution of the IE8, I'm resolving this topic. Any additional topics should be opened by each person, so the issue may be resolved individually. Thanks for everyone's cooperation in this.

      I think I may have installed pagelines pro incorrectly, and then used features incorrectly. I installed first platforms framework theme and then the child, thinking I could do setup for child later. I tried to set up a background image, and tried custom css feature in pagelines dashboard. I had mistakes in my css, and just thought that if I deleted the info in the css custom feature in pagelines dashboard that the new information would overwrite the old info. The background image didn't respond at all, probably because I didn't have the child directory renamed. I then tried to use the LSS plugin to create css and added more css, possibly, somewhere -sigh-. I never did change the background image and get it placed properly. I used a workaround and in nested containers I placed a background image which worked well enough, so I moved on to try to create my nav bar/ menu bar. When I go to the Menus panel, there is NO area where I can place a menu on a page. I have read and reread and re- re- reread the instructions for placing a menu. I've used the pagelines editor to place a menu, however only HOME shows up. I've been at this for many hours. I've since uninstalled all of my pagelines items and reinstalled, thinking that it would restore all my changes to default, but no, it is still all there, with all my unresolved issues. I am completely at a loss as to what to do next.

      http://731.34b.myftpupload.com/ this website is using the NavPro navigation in Platform 5. It has a lot of menu items, so it breaks to two lines when the window is sized down. What is the media query to make the navigation either a) switch to "mobile mode" at a higher width, or b ) expand the nav into two lines. Thanks

      ONEPAGE has visual errors in IE, objects do not stay separated, and image elongated on next section.  Any Suggestions?  It is coming up with this error from Pagelines on site.

      I just installed and added the Flipper section to my home page and it makes my navigation/menu bar items disappear.
      They do show up again when scrolling down and everything seems normal on the other pages.

      Site that looks great on other browser, are is rendered wrong on IE: http://foodfunded.us/
      We got multiple complaints.
      The height of sections is way too high. Not sure which section is causing the problem, as they are in containers.
      Or is the size of the images?

      While most of us probably don't use IE, it might prevent professionals from getting client engagements with the PL5 tool, if the browsers don't have coverage.
