Large screen format in IE9

Recommended Posts

I have a client who has using a flat screen TV for a monitor. It's about 30". The site I designed using PageLInes looks great on most every screen in IE9 but on this one it left justifies the site as opposed to keeping it centered. Chrome and Firefox work fine on this size display, it's only IE9 that has a problem. Is there a work around for this?

Hi there, do you have a link to the site we can look at, is it displaying left aligned on IE on a normal screen, or just the tv? It's going to be hard for us to replicate that set up so I think its going to be trial and error with some css to get corrected.


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.

Hi,

 

I hooked up my laptop via HDMI to my 32" Sony to see if I'd get the left aligned view in IE9.  After checking the site in IE9, Firefox and Chrome on the laptop, all the browsers looked fine on my television as well.

 

I must therefore conclude that this is a setting somewhere.  Since it's only visible to you on the television, I'm drawn to the conclusion that it's a setting related to the broadcast of the site from your computer to the television or, and IE9 setting.

 

Since the site works here on both a large screen television and my laptop, this isn't a PageLines issue.

Thanks Rob, I appreciate you checking this out and it does sound like it's an isolated problem to this particular configuration. I'll have the client see if there is some setting he can change.

      Hi there,
      My client is a user/website tester and has just informed me that her website is not displaying properly in Internet explorer 9 (and 8).
      The website looks great and has been tested by me on all devices and on the desktop by all the latest browsers ... but not older versions.
      Is there anything known about this and DMS, or is there a fix?
       
      the website is here..

      I have an issue with a site not behaving in IE9 and performing badly in IE8. I've been playing around with a copy on a staging server and testing view with Browserstack. I replaced my child theme and activated WP 2013 theme, and IE8/9 worked fine. I then activated the DMS2 Base theme and the not loading properly issue returned. Then I deactivated all the plugins but the problem still persists.   With child theme active: IE8/9/10 - http://imgur.com/a/FzN0O   With DMS2 Base theme active, all plugins deactivated: IE8/9/10 - http://imgur.com/a/3j15x   Temporary staging server URL: http://c95.731.myftpupload.com/   DMS version: 2.1.9.2 Debug is on, cache cleared   The problems with IE8 should be obvious. The CTA is disappearing in IE9 but otherwise is fine. Everything good in IE10 and up.
        Thanks in advance, Michael

      I was using the DMS Pro Tools patch and the Modernizr plugin/acript to get IE8 and IE9 to present DMS based sites correctly. This was working successfully, bar a few elements that I could make some conditional styles for.
       
      I've just noticed on the last two sites I've updated to the latest version of DMS that this no longer works. I know the Modernizr script hasn't been changed so I assume something with DMS has changed to render these non-functional.

      Any idea what might be stopping the script from running correctly? Normally it would allow older browsers to use HTML5 and CSS3 tags/selectors, at the moment its as if the script isn't even running/loading...

      I have problems with a couple of my websites. At www.botanicchoice.com/blog I get the following error message:

      Which appears to be a javascript problem.
       
      Also, at www.358scoutingonthego.org, the site looks completely screwy (I've tried to attach a screen shot here, but the file is too large). I don't get an error message here. I have tried disabling all plugins to no avail. Similar issues occur in other sites as well, but not all of the time. It's all very strange. So far, it all looks fine in IE10, Chrome, Safari, and Firefox.
       
      I have tried finding similar threads in the forum before posting so as not to cause a stir, but I have not found anything.
