pl tab content overlap sidebar only in IE

Recommended Posts


Hey guys!


ok so here: http://refined.huntersfairwaysothebysinternationalrealty.com/


the last 4 or so pl tabs overlap to the sidebar in Internet Explorer. I installed the browser specific css plugin but it caused an error so i deactivated it. 


Google IE Compatibility is checked. can I solve this with css? what should I do?


I searched for the keywords but couldn't find anything.

Sorry for the delay. It's been a very busy day.


There's nothing wrong with the tabs or code.  The problem is you have some oversized images which flow under the sidebar even in Firefox.  IE is less tolerant of images. There are images of 700px in a space considerably smaller.


Keeping in mind that there's padding and margins around the content area of about 25px on either side,  when you look at Dashboard > PageLines > Site Options and see the width of the content area.  Subtract 50px from that and you have the maximum image size you should use.  I do not recommend scaling the images as IE doesn't use or handle image scaling and the problem will persist.


Images should be resized in a graphics editor.

      My sidebar is now showing up below the content, but only on the homepage. 
      I've tried disabling plug-ins individually, checking column width, and <div> tag errors on the page as well as in individual posts that are displayed on my homepage. I don't know exactly when this issue arose, so I don't know what else to try! 
      Here's the page link:

      I am hoping to figure out how I can get my PageLines Full Nav to display layered in front of a sticky footer element on my website - 3keymedia.com
      I would like the Full Nav to overlay the entire screen when opening the menu as you will see when opening on a desktop the footer of nav content is cropped by the sticky footer.

      Hi everyone, since Instagram had allowed to publish in different ratio formats (instead of only square ratio) the grams stripe has different heights. Can you tell me if i can fix it easily with some CSS?

      Hi guys!
      I have noticed that my primary sidebar becomes intermittently invisible when browsing through various blog articles on michaelkummer.com/blog.
      https://www.dropbox.com/s/z646sgoa3mfjl1j/Screenshot 2018-07-12 15.57.46.jpg?dl=0 and https://www.dropbox.com/s/vdledzzgginvwgv/Screenshot 2018-07-12 15.57.57.jpg?dl=0
      Upon refresh, the sidebar appears. I have been using the following CSS code to hide the sidebar on mobile without any issues. 
      @media only screen and (max-width: 993px) {
      /* hide sidebars */
           .plsb {
              display: none !important;
      I tried to add the following CSS to force the sidebar to show on screens that are wider than 994 pixels but to no avail. Any clue what could be causing this issue?
