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.

      Shouldn't the image PL5 component be using the srcset/picture css directives to pick the correct size for an image? or it does already and I don't know how to use it? Thank you for any advice or enlightenment.

      Good Evening/Afternoon or Morning, 
      I am running into a problem with CSS styling not applying inside of most browsers (Safari, Firefox) when I am logged in to wordpress, and all browsers that I have tested when I am logged off and the site has been made public (Chrome, Firefox and Safari).
      As a result, I have managed to identify the probable cause. It looks as though these browsers are refusing to render my sites compiled CSS file due to it being a HTTP URL rather than HTTPS.
      I have attempted to change this URL to HTTPS in my browser, however it brings back an ERROR: File not found page - https://www.shortfilmblog.com/wp-content/uploads/pagelines/compiled-css-core-1505847507.css
      What would you suggest in this regard? Would this be resolvable from your end?
      Happy to provide any further details required.

      I know this is not an easy problem. Maybe there is a easy solution.
      I have tryed to uses the existing solution, that I have found in the forum
      I changed the colours of my nav (simple nav) and the hover effect (a. hover).
      I really tryed to highlight the active/used link in the nav but I cant figure it out.
      I want it to be black when active.
      Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

      Any solution to map section not rendering inside tab shortcode.
      (Map sits inside 3rd tab so map not visible on page load)
      Also this just seems to effect the map section. Map shortcode renders fine.
      I want to use the map section for finer control over markers and locations
      Renders fine if in first page.
